NBA playoffs discussion thread?

I'm not so sure that Cleveland is going to the finals, Pacers match up pretty well but still Cleveland's defense is bad.

I would just like to say that I am extremely jealous of Milwaukee. The Bucks managed to take Giannis Antetokounmpo 15th overall in 2013 and took Malcolm Brogdon 36th last year.

In those two drafts, role player Rich Cho took Cody Zeller and traded a 1st for Marco Belinelli.

Sure, revisionist history is easy to play considering a number of teams passed on Giannis. Brogdon may not be a superstar, but he's going to be good for a long time. An NBA GM has two jobs in my opinion:

  • 1. Find a superstar.
  • 2. Build the team after finding the superstar.

It still burns me that Rich Cho's option was picked up. The Plumlee trade was a fireable offense. Role player Rich is not capable of finding a superstar. This goes back to 2011, where he took Bismack Biyombo over Kawhi Leonard and Jimmy Butler.

It is the job of the GM and his scouting staff to project how good a player can be, this front office has proven they cannot do it.

I'll still support the Hornets. End of rant.

Oh, it'll be Cavs and Warriors in the Finals.
