I think the doctor started with the Sixers in 77 cuz that is when his team lost to Portland in the Finals.
im sure he did, i think he played longer than '84 too...im just saying for those 5 years i was a huge 76er fan.

it sorta ruined me for those great celtic-laker battles because i was so in on the Sixers.

i watched them all, some years id kind of root for Bird, others for Magic.

but the playoffs were always great.

then when the big fella came to the Knicks, i swallowed my hate and went all in on the Knicks.

been there ever since.

So is there any chance that if/when the NBA comes back to finish this season that we can have a "That's... that's Boogie Cousins' music!" moment?

2 Phoenix Suns have tested positive for Covid-19. Names haven’t leaked officially but rumor is it’s Aryon Baynes and Devin Booker.

Avery Bradley is opting out of returning for the NBA restart. Dwight Howard is 90% likely opting out as well.

Lakers losing potentially 2 role pieces they would need.

Does anyone think a front line big time impact player will opt out? If so who are the guesses?

I doubt it, at least not on any of the teams that are actual contenders. Maybe you see an all-star caliber guy on a team like the Wizards or Magic or something opt out but I doubt even that will occur.

Hopefully Dion stayed in shape the last 3 months. If so, he’s got a golden opportunity and the Lakers will need him. Bradley is a loss, but Dion played a similar nice role as a solid defender and 10 ppg guy who could handle the ball in OKC. If he can play like that here, we’ll be ok.

Bertans isn't playing. Not like he's an all star or anything, but he's at least ok

I think I hear JR Smith's music!

I think Bertans was already known before I made my post so I assumed he wasn’t significant enough to count. Might be mistaken though.

Yeah I'll give you that. I think it underscores how dumb it was to bring Washington and Phoenix back

There's now only one active player who played against Michael Jordan. (According to my friend, who is never wrong)

Pau Gasol (rehabbing foot injury, but wants to play another year to give himself a chance at one last Olympics), Nene (Rockets traded him to Hawks who then waived him-- not retired that I am aware of), Tyson Chandler (Rockets-- hope this is the answer you are going for)
