I had the same thoughts before the 2nd round starter. I thought Toronto matched up way better against Miami than Boston while Milwaukee would have had an easier time with Boston. But that's how the ball bounces.

I've always like Cassell and I think he'd be a great addition for the Rockets as their HC.  


Cassell definitely should be a head coach. His situation is like Chauncey Billups, who should be managing an NBA team by now. Of course, Billups' interest in a VP / GM position is largely unknown.

I do find it criminal that Steve Nash got a head coaching gig without putting in the time while assistants like Cassell continue to do their work on the sidelines and get overlooked. At least Nash realizes that he benefited from white privilege, but I'm surprised the League hasn't said anything.

Irving, Holiday, Lavert, Durant, Jordan....?  Or small ball with Durant at the 5 and Harris inserted.  If the Nets pull off this trade, they might actually be the team to beat in the East if they stay healthy.

Understood. But all three of those guys elevated their teams to higher than expectations. 
I hope all this propels Pascal to greater heights and doesnt break him.

Siakam was the highest scorer on the 2nd best team (record wise) in the NBA when people predicted we'd be a low EC seed or even miss the playoffs. That seems higher than expectations,  no? And he also got 2nd team all-nba.

You are correct. Its just tough watching the other 3 guys thrive today while Pascal gets justifiably roasted.

Siakam was a good story and he had a great start to the season, and probably many media members don't watch all that much basketball.

I was surprised he got 2nd team, almost everybody I heard had him 3rd team, even Blake was predicting 3rd team based on what he heard from other media members.

Due to the horrible timing of the announcement, it's as meaningless as an award can get ... It's close to Dirk getting the mvp days after being eliminated in the 1st round ...

You know, if I had to pick today, I would still take LeBron over Giannis.
