Not sure if it’s coming through on TV, but there’s a pretty significant Sixers contingent here at the AT&T Center. “Let’s go Sixers!” and “MVP!” chants have already broken out. But they aren’t too pleased right now, as the Spurs forced a quick timeout after taking a 5-0 lead. – 8:14 PM

Quick timeout for Doc Rivers after that Josh Richardson triple. Philly has been careless with the basketball and San Antonio has a 5-0 lead. #Sixers8:14 PM

3 turnovers in 4 possessions for the Sixers thus far, including a Tobias Harris missed layup and Joel Embiid passing into traffic instead of taking a jumper at the nail.

Doc knows what Spurs are going through this season:
“I have done rebuilds and I have lost 18 in a row (with Boston in 2006-2007), and every day Danny (Ainge) and I would sit around joking, ‘What are we going to do?’ We had a plan, though, and so do they (the Spurs).” – 7:23 PM

“His sense of humor, knowing the big picture, and he’s been around this before.” – 7:18 PM

Pop said he’s enjoying Spurs’ alumnus of the game series: “Seeing those guys, it’s like a time machine. It was punctuated by the Alamodome game, which really brought everything back for all of us who have been here a long time. It’s just been a wonderful season in that regard.” – 7:03 PM

The San Antonio Spurs are sitting on $26.9M in cap space. The Indiana Pacers still have $10.7M in cap space after the Myles Turner renegotiation-and-extension.
I wouldn’t be surprised if either are involved in a Kyrie trade (or other big deal) as a facilitator to help move money. – 6:39 PM

Josh Richardson has been a consummate pro. He’s goofy, relaxed, his teammates love him, and he’s relished his role in SA.
But one look around the locker room reveals the writing on the wall, in a language he’s gotten to know all too well.

Here are the teams I project to have $30M+ in cap space this summer:
HOU: $59.1M
SAS: $46.1M
DET: $43.7M
UTA: $43.2M
ORL: $33M
IND: $30.7M
Kyrie Irving’s max for next season projects at $46.9M. That’s why he wants a trade. To re-sign w/ Bird Rights bc no one can sign w/ space. – 5:29 PM

What would be a worse final game as a Net, if that’s how this turns out?
James Harden scoring four points against the Kings?
Or Kyrie Irving getting blown out 139-96 by the Celtics? – 4:05 PM

Kyrie’s timeline since signing with Nets:
In 2019-20, he played 20 games.
In 20-21, he got hurt in the playoffs.
In 21-22, he cratered the season by refusing to get vaxxed, forcing BK to trade Harden for Simmons.
In 22-23, he demands a trade.
Nets have paid him $136 million. pic.twitter.com/ToxpQAF4Ny3:47 PM

The difference between Damian Lillard and Kyrie Irving is this:
Had Lillard played in Cleveland with LeBron/Love, and then in Boston with Tatum/Brown/Hayward and then in Brooklyn with KD/Harden then KD/Ben, he would have 4-6 rings right now. Maybe 2 in each city. pic.twitter.com/MpYfMZnJk83:40 PM

Kyrie is going to leave Brooklyn — the place he always wanted to be — in free agency this offseason to sign with Orlando or OKC or Detroit or Indiana or San Antonio or Houston — the cap space teams? Feels like a pretty empty threat. – 2:55 PM

Kyrie destroyed parity in the NBA when he hit that shot in Game 7, leading KD to Golden State. Kyrie then joined KD and Harden in Brooklyn and has done everything in his power to sabotage the operation. The league now has great parity. Maybe the conspiracy guy has been conspiring – 2:17 PM
