You think not making will?

It avoids any more injuries at least. Why not just regroup and try and work on some improvements for whatever the league decides to do with the 20/21 season? We’ve already lost JJ to this summer league.

You think getting crushed in the first round is an experience that’s going to help build their confidence?

They are gonna get crushed if they make the POs next year as well. Yes it will be good experience.

If the choice is loose first round against lakers and not play.  How is that a tough choice ?

Not wanting to make the playoffs to avoid injuries? Now I've heard it all.

Are you agreeing or disagreeing with me? I want them to play the Lakers.

The goal should be to win a championship, not just make the Playoffs. That’s been this franchise’s only goal for 20 years and nothing has come from it. Going into a post season where there’s no realistic chance to compete, but there is a reasonable chance at sustaining additional significant injuries that could impact next year. Focus on addressing the problems, staying healthy, and working towards a championship next year.

For anyone wanting good news, Spurs beating the crap out of the Pels. 

Pels should just leave the bubble. They are getting hammered regularly.

So don’t make the POs this year and then expect them to win a championship next year without any PO experience?

It would be an incredible achievement to end an incredible season for this team to make the playoffs. How are you the only one not to realize this?

Morant has been very bad today too

Also TOR an elite defensive team and easily developed a scheme to neutralize the only real scoring threats we have (Ja and JV).

There’s a better chance with a few adjustments. But risking a possible injury to someone like Ja could be devastating in the long term. It’s all strategic.

Gasol totally neutralizing JV.

Gasol neutralizing JV?  JV isn't getting any touches down low, and Dillon has no visibility of JV or any big man we have.  I've said it before, there isn't a shot that Brooks hasn't liked...embarrassing that he largely contributed to this loss...why doesn't jenkins sit him? I don't understand.

How many teams win championships without taking their licks in the playoffs?

Ive joked about for-fitting the bubble and just making it back home alive, but its jokes. Obviously i dont want our guys to get hurt, but big game experience is the goal of the bubble for us. Our first games in the bubble showed why we need this experience

So the logic is just showing up in the Playoffs automatically makes you better? It’s not like a post season game is some magic event that if you just step out on the court you’re gifted immense improvements.

I sincerely hope that by the time next season rolls around, Dillon Brooks and Kyle Anderson are wearing different jerseys. 

If FO truly wants to keep Melton and are invested in Justise and developing Grayson.   Then i see no reason to hang onto Dillon and Kyle either.  I'd rather use our draft picks to fill their roles.

NBA  Superstar vets have spoken for years on how valuable the PO experience was for their development.   Not following your logic at all.

Surely you're arguing just to argue at this point, no?  Are you sincerely attempting to make the argument that the less big game experience a young player has, the better???  That it's better to sit out the playoffs instead of play in them if they're underdogs???  Are you hearing yourself?

I know it's a difficult concept for you, but name just one NBA player, coach, or sportswriter who would agree with you.
