On the one hand, as Wags said, the point differential thing made teams keep their stars in the game, which was unique and interesting.

On the other hand, in addition to all but mandating what traditionally has been viewed as an unsportsmanlike situation, just wait until a star or two get hurt at the end of a 40+ minute night with his team leading by 31 points.

Point differential happens in soccer, and their players never go down with an injury

Bucks better get serious. Only up 6 at the half. Can't lose to a DeRozan and LaVine less Bulls. Should win by 20.

Was literally coming here to post that. What an awesome story from a genuinely good dude.  He’s been my nephew’s favorite player from Knicks camp and my BIL has ran into a few times and raves about what a legitimately awesome guy he is.

Even cooler when you consider he was a first round talent that fell in the draft due to character concerns.  Great turnaround

What a great story. Makes my day a bit to see that there are genuinely good people out there still.

Somehow the Bucks lost to the Bulls.  And neither Lavine or DeRozan played.

Maybe this will give the Bulls the guts to rebuild.

What's the Klay trade?
Woj on ESPN says there is NO trade market for LaVine.  :(

The Bulls FO is truly comical. He wants out, the Bulls want him out but they likely will have him 4 more years.

Ha right? I believe that don't have many to use. Shocking but that happens when you build a dynasty.

Jokic leads the NBA in points, rebounds and assists.

Pretty good for a guy that every single team in the NBA passed on, some twice.

Not that it matters for anything but it cracks me up how much ESPN pumps up Tatum/the Celtics. At least when I took the screenshot the C’s were losing and Tatum was at 19/11/5 with 2 minutes left in the 3rd and they’re all about Tatum “flirting with a triple double.”

No mention of Haliburton flirting with a triple double, sitting at 19/10/7 at the same time. With his team leading.

Why on Earth didn't we recruit Haliburton?  :(

I was very ‘meh’ about the in- season tournament when it was announced. But it has been fantastic. Playoff intensity during the early season? Can’t be beat.

I recommend the Bucks continue to shoot over 60% from 3.

The Bucks are second in the east and won 8 of their last 10. Everyone knew that it would take awhile for a new coach to figure out a new roster at the beginning of the season.  Griffin isn't getting fired.
