    Maybe but Iím not so sure. A lot of our players lost their legs in the playoffs. Morris came out and said he was starting to wear down in the final stretch of the regular season. But Jokic couldíve bullied their bigs so he mightíve been able to steal a game for us

    I don't think we even sniff stealing a game from the Warriors, and the only way I could of seen it potentially happening would of been if we had a game like we did in the San Antonio series. I forget which one it was, where everyone hit every jump shot, and we actually made open 3's. But outside of that, even throughout the playoffs, we were just too inconsistent to rely on any one thing being there night after night. I am excited for the future though, and hope Porter can be a big time contributor from day 1 next year, because we wont be adding any significant pieces in my opinion.

    Well now that the NBA season is over, Iíd like to think that next season our window of opportunity to win it all is as open as itís probably going to get as of right now. The Warriors most likely wonít be the 1 seed, Houston is trying to overhaul their roster, Portland probably runs it back with more or less the same team. The only huge threat I see in the West is the Lakers if they get Anthony Davis. The Clippers with Kawhi would be a tough out as well.

    But if Murray can become more of 20 points every game on good percentages type of guy instead the boom or bust guy he is now weíll be hard for anybody. And if MPJ lives up to his hype we might see an offense where defenses canít set up in the paint which is a scary thought because you canít go small ball against Jokic but with all the cutting you have to have athletes out there.

    Iím excited for this offseason and the next NBA season.

    We got ourselves a Bol Bol.

    His stress fracture and lost weight is a concern but our team did a good job with Jokic's lack of strength and seems to be doing well with MPJ. Could be another great 2nd round steal of another big center that shoot 3s.

    Stop me if you heard this before. If he stays healthy we got the steal of the draft. Super skilled offensively and a rim protector on defense, we will have to see how well he can guard in space.

    Hopefully he plays this year because he can contribute immediately. He has great range and not just for a big, he has the range of a guard.

    I mean unlike MPJ I wasnít expecting any picks at all. So the fact we have some low risk high reward in Bol Bol Iím happier than I expected to be today.

    It would be great if he can allow us to shred Plumlee from this roster.

    Honestly Bol compliments Jokic on defense very nicely. Now when Jokic runs guards off the 3 point line in pick and roll situations he has a legitimate shot blocking threat roaming the paint. And heís someone that can disrupt guys like Gobert and Capela. Can Bol develop into a guy that can limit AD, Karl Anthony-Towns, and other players in that mold? If he does, then we have all the pieces needed for a strong run over multiple seasons.

    I absolutely love the pickup and with MPJ returning weíre adding a lot of length to our roster which is something I think weíve seriously lacked the past few seasons.

    July 5th we will get our first look at MPJ in live game action. I'm excited, if he can be the player he was projected we can have a warriors type run. I loved the Bol Bol pick. We only gave up a 2022 second rounder and cash. The gamble at that point was well worth it. I understand the risk of bigs with foot injuries, but man a guy that size with his handles, shooting, and defensive prowess are not easily available. Without medicals, he's in top 3 discussions. Love the fit, and I have faith in our medical team. TC has some stones the last 2 drafts, and I'm excited to see of it pays off. Probably a red shirt year for Bol, allowing him to gain weight and ensure his foot can heal. Next big questions are if we can get Millsap at a smaller number, and ideally we can move one of Barton or Plumlee. With some good moves, we could open up another Max slot. Not sure who we could get, but it has to be an appealing destination.

    Agreed, shipping Plumlee out with say next year's first, and bringing Millsap back on a smaller number can open up max I think. A guy like Horford would be soooo sweet.

    Length has been an issue for us for a while. It's what killed us against Portland in the playoffs, specifically in the backcourt. Harris was in good to great position a lot again CJ, but his lack of length allowed CJ enough room to hit the shot. Different story when CJ was against Klay, he couldn't hit those shots. Adding a shot blocker with Bol's athleticism, could definitely help a lot.

    Don't think he will play a lot if at all this year. I think we will take max caution due to the foot, and he really does need to add weight. I think maybe some mid to late season minutes at most.

    Eh I think him adding weight may add to his injuries. Wasnít he playing at a heavier weight this year in college?

    He was in the 230s in college. I'm not a doctor, and each case is different, bit 206 is way too light to be successful.

    Granted... this guy thinks the world is flat, but Shaq said he would have picked Bol Bol over Zion if he was going to "build a team" around a guy. A lot of people are saying it could be the steal of the draft:
