Luka is something else...

Meanwhile Trae Young has been absolutely lighting it up this whole playoffs. Very fun to watch.

If we hadn't re-signed Niko we would have probably been in line to draft one of those guys. That 10 game win streak killed our tank. Granted GarPax would have probably taken Bagley or Jaren Jackson though.

Warriors run was extra painful for this Bulls living in the Bay Area which is the epicenter of bandwagon fans.
Oh, I can imagine.. though you should have had fun when they won 73 games, and then didn't win a ring.

Something about him gives me shades of Iverson.. though his dribbling is nothing like Iverson.

I think GarPax were destined to the 7th pick no matter what happened.

The crowd in Phoenix was awesome.
I had to quit that game in the 3rd Q. Denver was up 10 and crowd was falling out of it. Oddly Phoenix went on a massive run after I turned it off I see.

I was watching hockey, and then turned on the game at that point. Folded some laundry and next thing I knew Phoenix was up by a million.

Kyrie ded, Nets might be on the ropes.

NBA ejects the MVP in do or die game and Phoenix sweeps.. in WCF for the first time since 2010.

I love this Suns team. Booker/Ayton/Bridges. If they re-sign Paul and someone like Cam Johnson gets better, man.

Put me down as someone who thinks it’s better that we’ll have a teams in the Finals that haven’t ever, or haven’t been there in awhile.
Last Finals Appearances:
Milwaukee - 1974
Philadelphia - 2001
Utah - 1998
Phoenix - 1993
LA Clippers - Never; haven't even made a conference finals.

If Brooklyn manages to still win, 2003 for them.

Only Milwaukee/Philly have won championships, last in 1971 for MIL and 1983 for PHI.

Health is really the thing with Paul....Also, Paul can opt into his player option and remain in Phoenix for 1 more season...

They need to really think grooming a PG.. and not Cam Payne.

I can see what you think of Atlanta's chances.

You're right, I don't think much of their chances, even with the series now tied. Honestly yesterdays game, though the end was much closer, reminded me a lot of Game 4 of the Bulls vs Hawks in 2011.

But for records sake...

Atlanta last made the Finals as the St. Louis Hawks in 1961.

They made the ECF in 2015, their first appearance in the conference finals since 1970, when they belonged to the Western Division, and it was known as the Western Divisions Finals. Their first two years in Atlanta they made the Division Finals, 69 and 70, and were beaten into a pulp by the Lakers both times.

Paul would look great in a bulls uni. He’s close with white too. Don’t think it’ll happen but would be a monster addition

He'd be worth it if he can turn our team around like the Suns this season. I don't see why he would leave Phoenix to join this team though.
