50 points in 29 minutes for C.J. McCollum last night...

Horrible injury to Isiah Cannan...Saw it right before I went to bed.

Wiz vs. Sixers tonight on TNT.


The Sixers might be in trouble as far as the playoffs as concerned, Detroit looks like they're much improved with Blake Griffin and on their way up.

Bucks 5-1 since firing Kidd.  Down 2 guards, though.  May not last much longer

With all of the injuries, can we put Simmons up as a starter in the all star game, yet?

Since subs were announced, he’s only averaged 18 points, 7 rebounds, and 7 assists while shooting 62%. Cmon

The schedule helped a bit with that streak, but I think they needed to do something, Kidd can be toxic when things aren't going well/his way.

Really sucked to see KP go down.  I really like watching that guy play.

Simmons has to be on the short list.  I'm not sure if they have to choose an eastern conference player, but I'd take Simmons over a Kemba Walker at this point.

Awesome game last night between the T-Wolves/Cavs....Both teams were hot from 3, they broke the record for most combined 3s made in a single game, Lebron hits a buzzer beater in OT to win...

No doubt, but they weren't winning those games earlier in the season.  I looked at their schedule and it looks like more of the same for the next few weeks.  Good lord, they may even catch and pass up the Cavs.

Well, that escalated quickly...

The new look Cavs are without a doubt more talented and a better fit for one another than the previous version, however, they're still being coached by Ty Lue...

Ha..It needed to happen...I'm happy for Wade and the Heat...I read the article about Wade and Riley hugging it out at Wade's former agents' funeral a few weeks back...

That was some touching shit.

LMAO

As soon as I saw that they picked Walker I figured you let out some choice words...

Simmons would be so much better in that game, not only the passing, but his dunking...I don't get the Walker pick, people claimed that winning should be a criteria for the All-Star selection, the Hornets suck ass this year.

Philadelphia 76ers general manager Bryan Colangelo wouldn't commit to a timeline for Markelle Fultz to return this season -- or whether the No. 1 overall pick would play again at all in 2017-18.

Speaking to reporters Friday, Colangelo said the rookie was currently limited to shooting in the free throw lane.

"It's within the paint basically," Colangelo said. "Paint shots. Perimeter shots are where you kind of draw a line."

Someone made a great observation in the comments section of that article about the guys that the Sixers didn't redshirt (MCW and Okafor) compared to the guys that they did redshirt (Embiid, Simmons, Noel).

I just saw that Jabari Parker is back for the Bucks(yeah, I don't pay attention much).  Like picking up a decent free agent mid-season.  Look out Cavs.  We gonna eat yer lunch.

I really hope we all get to see peak Jabari.  He was playing really well last season before the injury.  I didn't know that he and J. Kidd weren't on speaking terms for the last year or so, but maybe the changing of the guard allows him to realize even more of his potential should he stay healthy.


The new look Cavs looked really good yesterday against Boston.  That game wasn't even close after the Cavs got it going.  That bench mob with Rodney Hood and Jordan Clarkson should be a problem for opposing defenses.

Watching the players’ reactions toward the end was funny though.
