When we get to Game 1 of the NBA finals, someone is going to have to take a loss.

Nice glove flip and barehanded grab.

Even juicier wishful thinking than the thought of Lonzo Ball going to the Lakers to continue the destabilization process in Buss country:

Ainge casually mentions that he's going to take Lonzo with the top pick and swap him to Philly. Just to see if the father's head explodes.

I'm not convinced that this is true. Can't see either team losing.

Sounds right to me ..

The Cavs don't play anyone until the finals (sorry Celtics fans, nice young team but at least 2 superstars short) and Golden State is playing the Spurs without their 2 best players including the best all around player in the game (Leonard).

If both the Cavs and Golden State return the same rosters next season they will play in the NBA finals 4 consecutive years.
