    As anticipated, AD is becoming, or already is the No. 1 on the Lakers with LeBron sliding into the No. 2 role where he can fill the stat sheet and not have to worry about handling the bulk of the scoring. Davis, when he's healthy, is the best big man in the game, better than Giannis or Embiid.

    I watched the first three quarters before turning it off (well, going to sleep) because the Lakers just seemed so flat, I didn't think they would make a game of it.

    If they stay healthy (they won't) they'll win the Finals in 5.

    Speaking of the finals, I though Mark Jackson and Van Gundy went in surprisingly hard on the NBA for making the regular season pointless. Van Gundy even called the NBA "the Titanic, because they've told the audience that the regular season doesn't matter."

    The Lakers look really good... but if everyone's healthy I'll still take the Clippers coming out of the west.

    Just saw Giannis DUNK on post up (not fast break or running start) from OUTSIDE restricted circle, ridiculous.

    My God.

    If he's hitting KD-style turnaround fadeaways and 26' 3-pointers, he's a human cheat code.

    Oh, and RIP Julius Randle.

    To me, the NBA regular season matters for three reasons:
    1. Watching Luka
    2. Reading/listening to Zach Lowe
    3. Watching Luka
    Bonus: Watching Luka

    Watching Clips-Blaz side by side at bar w Duke-MSU really shows what a drop in competition from pros.

    If there is an opposite version of the most improved player award in the NBA, Kuzma is a shoo-in.

    I think the college game is largely unwatchable. It really is an enormous dropoff.

    I've never gotten the Kuzma love. He shows flashes but he's nowhere near what Lakers fans seem to think. I suspect there's a good reason why New Orleans didn't insist on Kuzma being included in the Davis deal.
