It has definitely been the most competitive East in years just due to the quality of the teams in question. Yes, taking Lebron out of the equation has something to do with it, but the quality of the conference as a whole has improved significantly.

I would trade Lebron too at this point. Even Michael Rappaport came out and said yesterday on Undisputed that no one would be surprised to see Lebron in New Orleans. He wants so badly to play with AD? He'll get his chance, just not the way he envisioned it :lol:

Shit, I 'd take on every bad contract New Orleans has to make the salaries match if it meant getting Zion.
Could you imagine having Zion + #4, alongside Ingram, Ball, Kuzma, Hart. That’s a team for the future. :tuttosport:

Lol. Yeah, I didn’t need to qualify that as an opinion. Though I’m sure there are some noodles out there somewhere, who would try to argue it isn’t.

I dont like I told you so's but I recall I pointed it's a clear mistake to let Brook Lopez walk when he so cheap and you have no bigs. Bizarre to since he would fit well with Lebron for same reason he fits with Giannis.

I mean it’s not really I told you so since postironic and cr7 aren’t the ones who made the trade

It looks even worse now that we shipped off Zubac who was finally blossoming into pretty good young player, for a Muscala who was supposed to stretch the floor but couldn't shoot to save his life.

I think some of us assumed we were going to sign that second max, or trade for one last summer/fall. But with hindsight showing we failed to do so, the players we let walk last summer, Lopez and Randle, and then traded, Zubac... just bizarre strategy all around.

My assumption was, give Lebron and the kids this season to build chemistry, while Lebron slowly transitions his game into a less ball dominant one. Then make some noise in the playoffs and present a very favorable situation for a potential 2nd max this summer, either KD or KL, then all these players we let walk from DLO up until Zubac would have been worth it. And it was going very well, then the James injury, followed by other injuries, followed by the TD fiasco... now when it doesent look like we will land a top FA, all these players we let walk are coming to haunt us

Ah, well.

Looking forward to another year of unrealistic expectations. Yay team.

In other news, Darius Garland left the NBA combine because he has apparently been promised that he will be drafted in the Top 5

I’d love to see us continue with the youth project and not blow it up completely for AD this summer.

Lebron-Ingram-big man?-Ball-Garland is exciting. With Kuzma as 6th man. And Bullock as 3 and D off the bench. Could be exciting.

Boogie Cousins on a bargain might be worth looking at, as if we draft Garland, we’re just missing the big man. Vucevic is another perhaps, though not if he is asking max money. It’s really too bad AD’s free agency isn’t this summer. :sad:

Of course, all this assuming we aren’t in the running for a KD, Kawhi, or Klay this summer
