Pelican you believe this?

Someone is suggesting the Pels send JJ Reddick to NY (because thibs wants Vets and Rose wants shooters around RJ and Mitch) for Kevin Knox and his... DEFENSE?!

When fully engaged, Knox is potentially a devastating defender on the wing. Heís strong at the point of attack and flashes the ability to force ball-handlers into poor decisions. Heís an intriguing option to fill the Pelicans void for a rotation wing.

I think that itís less likely Knox reaches his lofty ceiling offensively but working with the Pelicans staff that improved Lonzo Ballís jumper, Iíd see Knox as the Pelicans own Jae Crowder.

I like him enough but I just don't see Portis remaining with this team.

Agree. 

Again, it will be interesting to see how Thibs comes out of this week's one on one encounters, and the next two weeks' collective scrums. 

For all his weaknesses on the defensive end, I persist in viewing Portis's long range shooting as a skillset we sorely need.

My hope would be to keep Portis and Bullock (both of whom could be dangled at the trade deadline), to somehow work out a cheaper contract (an MCE) for Gibson to return on, and to shit or get off the pot regarding Randle.  Can Thibs reach him and find a more efficient, sensible way to nurture the things he CAN DO, as opposed to the ludicrous manner in which he was deployed as a point forward/ballhandler last season.  Not sure his game is a good fit for us unless we cab develop an efficient, reliable facilitator at the rudder.  Smith, Ntilikiina...Payton, Harper?  Free agency draft?

Not sure I see Payton, Harkless, Gibson coming back.  Maybe Gibson for his mentorship. 

Payton is a good, though offensively limited point, but I think he ate into minutes that Ntilikina and Smith needed to see.  One of them is out of here.

I'm fucking disgusted-I haven't been this pissed at the Cetls in a long time

Total melt-down.

Brad owns a big chunk of this

Ok Kamster. Now that you showed us your fantasy, would you PLEASE restore your salads in Dallas siggy, that would be my fantasy for now.

PS. Bank, sorry about today. Another close one. Hope you can still beat them at the end.

I think it was a team loss and a coaching loss.

The Celts planted the seeds for this loss with their sloppy close to the 2nd qtr.

And the Heat harvested the Celts immaturity.

They got outplayed and outcoached tonight.

By default, Miami has been my team in the playoffs. 

Pat Riley understands WINNING HOOPS. 

Fierce defense, motion and ball movement, knock down shooters....draft players who fit your system. 

Fuck ME. 

Did I mention shoothing.  My GOD, but they can SHOOT. 

And Coach Splo, buried the Celtics with his Zone Coverage in the second half, coming back from -17 down. 

Great team spirit. 

Did I say team.

Exhibit W?  Jimmy Butler. 

Exhibit L?  Paul George. 

MAN, would I ever love to see a Miami-Denver FINALS.

PS: GORAN DRAGIC, people....

There have been so few games like this over the past few years, it looked like they just didn't play hard and smart. And they got abused.

They just imploded in the 3rd qtr.

Bank, just look at it this way:

I wish we were in the EC finals and being abused by Miami.

Feel better now?

Yes Brad's got his work to do, but to me, the series so far is less about Celtic failure ó honestly, there's been a couple buckets that got friendly bounces that could have altered the outcomes ó than the Heat's top down bottom up commitment to winning and excellence. The perfect fit for Butler, an extraordinary star who doesn't need a point to be happy and outworks everyone else on the court.

Knick fans were never appreciative during the "so close" years.

They deserve what they get.
