What would happen if the Pels made the playoffs?
Before you start laughing, or maybe crying, people expect the Clippers to tank to keep their pick making the Kings the de facto 8 seed. The Kings' winning percent translates to a 42-40 record. The Pels would need to go 18-9 to match that. Niko's gone but Okafor has stepped up, Randle is back and Kenrich Williams and Frank Jackson have good, positive NetRtgs in the last 9 games compared to the people they'd be taking minutes from. Even Ian Clark is having a late season surge like he did last year. The defense has even picked up without AD. They're 15th in the last 9 games AD's been out compared to 23rd for the season.

I know that won't be the plan or the goal, but with AD playing and the bench appearing to be bolstered, what happens if they make the playoffs? What happens if they get there and actually beat someone? It may be crazy but it's still conceivable.

I would laugh my arse off if while AD playing he realizes the future is brighter here than with those bum arse Lakers and fires Rich Paul

If this draft is crap like they say then what's the difference in the 11th pick and a late teens pick?

Pels want to suck for 2020/21

Beat someone?

If they somehow miraculously make the playoffs they would be the 8 seed and play against the warriors.

Denver is 1.5 games behind and I doubt the Warriors care about the 1 seed.

That would be some funny shite but I still don’t see it happening.


Still hoping the Kings knock the Lakers out of the playoffs for multiple reasons.

Happy for the playoffs and would be excited if they won a series or two. But I've soured on AD. It was understandable why he asked out at first. But the way he and his representation tried to attack our franchise.

frick him. I hope it turns into a CP3 situation. He leaves and never wins a championship.

I'd actually be more accepting of Boogie returning than AD having some sort of epiphany where he realizes he would do better staying in Nola than elsewhere.

A perfect scenario would be making the playoffs and adding a perimeter shooter, followed by AD telling the Lakers to frick off.
Yeah, all of that’s going to happen, right?

Would be hilarious in a very ironic sort of way.

Guess that's why it's ill advised to burn bridges unnecessarily in life.

They will make it interesting.
They have a nice 8 deep.
Bagley is off the bench. 6 11 and plays good defense.
Career high today vs suns.
