    If there were no play in, Pop would toss the towel with more games left, and play the rest of the kids, much like the bubble last year. Now, we have almost no chance to be eliminated, so we get to watch the medium three fumble away games.

    I don't mind the play in tournament, tbh. I don't care if it goes away but I wouldn't mind if it stays either. In the big picture, 7th and 8th seeds don't matter so why not make it more interesting and maybe keep a few more teams from blatantly tanking? Tanking Is probably the thing that is most harmful to the NBA as a league so if this dumb play in tournament helps, go ahead and keep this harmless gimmick around.

    Methinks the Thunder might be taking this tanking thing to the extreme.

    I just hope the top 6 shakes out in such a way where the Lakers and Clips have to play each other in the first round.

    Nola has a reasonable chance to win 5 games looking at their weak schedule. Sacto not so much..
    I didn't realize that NOP has three games remaining against the Warriors and another against the Griz. It's not impossible for them to sneak in Spurs could still drop to 11, especially with the Spurs tough schedule.

    It's just part of the trend to make the regular season as meaningless as possible.

    The Pels are 4 games back in the loss column, with 10 for us to play. The Pels only have 8 games to play. Not likely. There’s an overwhelming chance that we are 10. They could do us a favor, and roll over for GS. Neither of 9/10 teams are likely to play in, so if GS finishes 9, and neither of us plays in, that would bump us up to 13, instead of 14 in the lottery.

    The play in feels strange because it's new, but I think the combination of adding revenue for the league and cutting down on tanking is ok. The time it's really going to get interesting is when a team with a season long injured superstar manages to grab the 10th spot just as that star is ready to return. There's a slightly different version of that happening this year with the Lakers-- after playing great basketball all season, the Jazz, Suns, Clips, or Nuggets might have to face a completely healthy AD + Lebron in the first round.

    They aren't even playing the players that need to develop like Dort or Poku because they are afraid it will cost them losses.

    Even if the Spurs make it to the play in, they are gonna get their lunch handed to them by the Warriors.

    Craig Pop n Patty in a minor fender bender that renders both unable to participate in the Play In and Playoffs?

    The problem is we got to lose just as much as they win. Which I guess this team has the talent or lack thereof to do
