    Yes, but coasting is not a strategy, just a mindset. The fact that they've been to 3 consecutive finals, and won the last 2, means they are prone to coasting (virtually any team would). Plus, you...

    First of all, for those saying Miami tanked: you're clueless. They rested players because they had a 90% chance of being the second seed, and it was completely out of their hands. Indiana just needed...

    @Pele: quick note, you CANNOT go "into the luxury tax" to sign someone who is NOT already on your team. If you are over the cap, you can only trade for a highly paid players.

    Very fair point. But all I got out of that video (and the box score) is that our starters played decent minutes, theirs didn't even play (other than T.Allen), and even then we only blew the game open...

    For the record, don't forget that Denver has the rights to switch picks with the Knicks in 2016, when the latter might be rebuilding. So I might actually do that deal IF we get the right to switch...

    Exactly! The better you're doing, the less you want to shake things up by making a move, but the better the returns would be if you did. However, since we know we're not contenders (even if we keep...

    One thing I was thinking about, contrary to my original thoughts, is whether Ujiri would be MORE likely to make moves if we are doing well. Think about it: he's a wizard at getting good value in...

    I'd say yes as well, as long as management doesn't lower the bar by saying, for instance, "Since this part of the schedule is harder, we could live with a 33% winning percentage."

    Yes, but when determining this, you ALWAYS look ONLY ahead, never back. So since the pick was traded in the past year, at this point we CAN trade our 2014 pick, even without having another pick. But...

    Apparently the fracture was IN the hand; so not one of the 3 bones that makes up the finger, but the long bone below the knuckle. I imagine that's a heck of a lot harder to hold in place (for the two...
