He's looking at their $118 million payroll and he's thinking I need a better return on my investment than this, they've looked like the worst team in the league, worse than Atlanta, Phoenix or Sacramento.

It was unrealistic to expect playoff contention, the Love contract was turrible, they should have started aggressive tanking sixers style.

Lue was never a good coach. David Blatt would have done better with this team, I think.

keep him. see how far they can get in the playoffs with him. making the finals is at least a possibility for the first time. if they do get far in the playoffs, the insanity of the whole city…make that the country, will be unlike anything he’s ever experienced before so that could play a role in whether he decides to stay or not. roll the dice and see how it goes.
If his people tell us before the deadline he won't sign here, if we lose both GS reg season games by 10 or more points and if we can get Ingram back in a package for him I think we have to think of the team's future and trade Kawhi. Pains me to say it because I'm really enjoying the show but we have to think about how we can best position ourselves to be really good as the GS dynasty crumbles in later years.

Kawhi vs Giannis should be an explosive matchup. Middleton is really hot right now too though.
Booooo. Kawhi and Giannis are out for tonight.

no-giannis bucks vs no-kawhi raptors

I hope we win.
I took the Raptors - 1 spread. Should be pretty solid as Giannis is a big part of the Bucks team. Without him, I don't expect them to put up much of a giht against us.

Still worried because tonight we also don't have OG, FVV and possibly Wright.

+1 sucks for anyone who bought tiks hoping to see a good matchup as Kawhi likely would have been guarding Giannis.

Oh well...it's one game Win or Lose although i hope we do Win and we shoot more than 12 3-pointers as some free fries would go nice with some Popeye's fried chicken on a Tuesday!
We're all bozos on the bus until we find a way to express ourselves...

Failure is always an option...just not the preferred one!

Huh? I read OG and Wright are expected to play. Only Fred is questionnable.

Fred would definitely guarantee a win if he's playing tonight.
I love RFD! :)

Too bad. I was going to switch back and forth between this and MNF.... I guess now the choice is obvious.

They are better with Giannis off the floor than last season, Middleton, Lopez, Ilyasova can all score in volume, their D should be their weakness though.
