So is the NBA having expanded playoffs or they're just inviting back any of the team that hadn't been mathematically eliminated yet and then going with a 16 team playoff like always?

Kind of both? "Playoffs" aren't expanded, but this invitation to teams who are still mathematically in it turns it into a defacto play-in tournament to make the playoffs. They would go straight to the playoffs, but they're trying to recoup TV money for the regular season.

Blazers were the lone vote of dissent, on behalf of their players.

They really lucked out. As much as they were underperforming (even considering injuries) the Blazers would have had a pretty tough time qualifying for the playoffs. Now they're in--sort of--and with their frontcourt. Seeing Dame in this tournament, oh man. I can't wait.

[SHOW]
Even NBA media are better on social issues than other sports (spoiler because of a cuss).


Perhaps the best Woj bomb of them all.

That's what I say whenever I see Hawley's picture, too!

My guess is that the 'curbside pickup' option at Magic City is one of the least used 'curbside pickups' in the world.

They need to move back the three point line. The Rockets are taking 60 a game. It's lame. Also, James Harden is just the worst. Insufferable. It's like watching a dick big brother play a three hour game of 'stop hitting yourself' with his sibling.

For every Rockets there are your Nuggets. A truly unique and bizarre collection of physical freaks that play basketball in new and fun ways. Neither will win anything meaningful, but at least you can pick your poison.
