More seismic activity in the Southland! Wow. The Clippers are now in the conversation for an NBA championship. Likely a good move for him. He's with a stable organization that has deep pockets, a strong cast of talented "blue-collar" players, and Paul George.

YA!!!!!!!!!!!! Clippers!!!!!

What news here said is Kawhi was still on the fence about the Clippers until they told him about Paul George and that all it took and he signed. Blue Collar Basketball rules!

Wow. Seriously. The Clips were already a really good team.

...and Paul George? Wow.

Without giving up too many good players on their team. I would agree with Vegas. Right now, the Clippers seem like the team most likely to win the championship. They already have a team that gave the Warriors fits, with a bunch of blue collar types that hustle, play defense, etc.

Okay, this isn't quite as exciting as the last bunch of signings, but the Lakers have signed Avery Bradley to a two-year deal (LA Times).

That's what I kept hearing as well. In fact, several thought he was going to the Lakers until that happened, with one person saying that the Clippers had simply thought they weren't going to get him until they got Paul George.

What's interesting is that both Leonard and George had repeatedly expressed interest in going to the Lakers, partially so they could go back home. And....none of them are there. Like I said above, I believe the Clippers have the best chance to win a championship as it stands right now.

I hope nothing happens to Kawhi. I like that guy. Gotta be careful of these curses, you know.

The Lakers will get into the playoffs for sure. I still think they're a strangely constructed team, but a whole lot better than last year when they were the Island of Misfit Toys. That never made any sense to me at all.

I saw that last night. Wow. One report says Harden really pushed to get to reunite with Russ. We live in interesting times…

Poor DeMarcus Cousins. I wonder if he's done. It's gotta be tough for him. frown

The New Look Rockets look a lot like previous generations. They even got Ryan Anderson back, which I'm pretty surprised about since he usually is pretty useless around playoff time. But it's wild seeing a lot of the same guys on the team as last year. Harden said they hardly practiced in the offseason, they all knew the drill. idk

Er, that might be showing. They should have practiced some defense, at least. facepalm

Raptors much better than expected after Kawhi's departure. Their depth is no longer in question and their defence is top notch. I think there starting to prove more than a few analysts wrong.

So, anyone been watching The Last Dance? I just watched episodes 3 & 4 on Netflix.

Great series so far. The whole thing was just before my time, so it's great to get an inside look at what made MJ and co so special. And of course, it's just another reminder to practice. deadhorse

I've been watching it. I'm grateful to have good sports television to watch while sports are having a time out due to the pandemic.

Those years were not before my time, but I was so busy during much of the '90s that I missed out on a lot of it anyway.

I also watched Celtics/Lakers: Best of Enemies recently on ESPN's 30 for 30. It makes a great companion piece to The Last Dance.

Best,

Geoff
