    Now, now, there is no reason to swear, one is just giving their opinion to the matter of sports.

    There's talk of Cavs wanting to make a move for Boogie Cousins, that would definately make things interesting looking at the Warriors rivarly!

    Especially with Mozgov gone now, Lakers I think. Boogie does have some anger issues though needs to calm down haha.

    Yeah his only criticism is that he sometimes loses his cool but to be fair he had a poor relationship with George Karl in Sacramento, and rightly so (George Karl tried to get him traded).

    But honestly Coach Lue seems like the perfect couch for Boogie. He comes off as a no-nonsense type of guy who will tell you how it is without sugarcoating things but still have your respect at the same time.

    Only real way for the Cavs to get hold of Boogie would be trading Love and I'm not sure they are prepared to do that.

    I have no idea how Cavs feel about that but if I were them I'd do it in a heartbeat!

    Although I loved watching the Trail Blazers last year in the play-offs. The Lillard & McCollum duo I feel will be good next year, now they also added Ezeli and managed to hold Crabbe.

    Yeah man for sure, I think we can all safely say Blazers definitely surpassed expectations last year. They had a brand new team with the exception of Lillard and CJ (who had been getting hardly any minutes in the previous seasons) but they shocked everyone by making the playoffs and getting to the 2nd round (I know, injured CP3 and Blake, but still).

    To me Lillard and McCollum are the 2nd best backcourt in the NBA behind Steph and Klay (you could make a case for Lowry and DeRozan but it's a close one).

    Hmm you have gotten some nice additions like Mozgov and Deng which can definately help Lakers step up, and obviously Ingram the rookie, which I haven't really seen so can't comment but being a top 3 pick he can't be too bad haha. However still I don't think it will be enough for a playoff place in a difficult western conference.

    Regarding the Blazers, I do hope that the last season's experience will help them carry over, they might become my team after all aha!
