Man, there are so many good jobs open right now. LAC, Philly and New Orleans all have a chance to contend if the right levers are pulled.

To me Doc is a better than average coach but he's not great imo. I love Luka but there was no reason for them to basically never double Luka and to switch literally everything and never show a different look to him once in our series. He just seems to rely on his talent to do what they are supposed to do. I just think you can do a lot better than Doc. The real issue is who do Kawhi and way off p want on the team?

Lots of open jobs, but the NBA has a dearth of good coaches

Dion Waiters will probably get a ring no matter who wins the championship

Yeah, but can you remember a time when this many GOOD jobs were open at once? I can't, but I haven't really tracked it.

Brooklyn, Philly, LAC are all primo gigs, and New Orleans is better than 95% of the open jobs you'd normally see.

And once again we see the weakness of the eastern conference.

The weird thing is, I don't think this was a typical "eastern conference sucks" season, as we've seen so constantly over the last 20 or so years. Milwaukee, Philadelphia, Boston, Toronto, and Miami were all really good this year. The West was still better, but the gap wasn't nearly as wide as it has been in the past. But all of those teams other than Miami underachieved in the playoffs for whatever reason. Miami appears to have overachieved.

My hot take on game 1 is that the Lakers figured out the Heat's zone defense, and the Heat had no idea how to respond. The Lakers also just got incredibly hot from 3, which was totally unexpected, and I don't expect them to replicate at all. They're not typically a very good shooting team. It'll be interesting to see how Miami responds. I expect them to come out guns blazing in game 2. They're too good for the whole series to be a blowout- assuming Bam and Dragic are okay. If they're not, then it's a sweep.

I am however rethinking my initial take that Miami is a really tough matchup for Lakers. Granted, Bam and Dragic left the game early, but still, AD was completely dominant, and it made me realize that Miami is actually really small, and the Lakers are of course huge.

Dragic apparently has a plantar tear in his left foot and is out for the series.

Ouch. Unfortunate for him, the Heat, and for us viewers. I was looking forward to a competitive finals. Now it's looking for like an easy win for the Lakers.

Heat have no answer for AD. With Dragic out Miami doesn’t stand a chance this series.

At least it wasn't ACL, but foot injuries are no joke. Apparently he won't require surgery from what I understand although it is an option.

Woj just said he has been able to put pressure on his foot, and hasnít been ruled out for the Finals.
