Crazy turn of events due to health & safety protocols AND injuries once again. Season continues to be an unpredictable roller coaster. CP3 in COVID-19 protocols (via @ShamsCharania) & Kawhi is likely OUT for Game 5 vs. Jazz (via @WindhorstESPN) w/ knee injury. Advantage Utah.
GREATNESS!! Appreciate it while you can people! #KD

KD making a statement with video game numbers in this game. Love that he’s furious about missing that freebie while just dominating in every way possible.
Nets say Kevin Durant is the first player in NBA Playoff history to record 45+ points, 15+ rebounds and 10+ assists.

Who has impressed you the most during the NBA playoffs thus far? (Reply with another player if not named)
So are we basically waiting for Jazz-Nets Finals? Suns-Jazz could be 🔥, but not sure if they can hang with Utah. Thoughts? Too early to write off the Clipps? Bucks?

Dipped into the archive of Lakers practice pics I took to find this one. LBJ's 1st practice as a Laker (if I remember correctly). He always wears No. 6 in practice even if another teammate (Lance Stephenson at the time) has it. Thoughts on the change to No. 6?
Pat Riley on LeBron (3/3): "It was the best time for the Heat. So I wish him nothing but the best, and if he ever wanted to come back, I'll put a new shiny key under the mat."
Pat Riley on LeBron (2/3): "LeBron, look, he's one of the greatest of all time, and for four years down here, if we want to go back and remember what those four years were like, it was four years in the Finals, four years of excitement, two world championships…"
Pat Riley on being open to LeBron James returning to the Heat (via @LeBatardShow) (1/3): "I would leave the key under the doormat if he would call me and let me know that he's coming. I would do that, but I doubt very much that key…That key is rusted now..."
Heat president Pat Riley gets slapped with a $25k fine for violating the NBA's anti-tampering rule after making comments about Lakers superstar LeBron James recently.
Odds on Damian Lillard’s next team if traded, via @SportsBettingAG: Knicks +250 Clippers +275 Heat +300 Lakers +350 76ers +400 Celtics +450 So Lakers in the mix, but honestly I don’t know how they’d make that happen with the lack of trade assets they have.
Lakers assistant Jason Kidd has withdrawn his name from consideration for Portland’s head coaching vacancy, Kidd tells ESPN. “Portland’s a first-class organization and will have great candidates…but I’ve decided not to be one of them.” es.pn/3z6vla5

Frank Vogel on Lakers assistant coach Jason Kidd: “He should be at the top of everybody’s list that has an opening in the NBA. Jason Kidd should be at the top of their list.”
The Portland Trail Blazers are increasingly expected to hire Clippers assistant Chauncey Billups or Lakers assistant Jason Kidd as franchise’s next head coach, sources tell me and @jwquick. Exclusive comments from Damian Lillard and more on @TheAthletic: theathletic.com/2634209/2021/0…

Rob Pelinka on Dennis Schroder: "Dennis is an attractive player to us. ... There is unfinished business."
Rob Pelinka on Dennis Schroder: "He is an extreme competitor."
Pelinka: “You can never have enough shooting so it’s something that’s always at the top of our mind when we’re creating a roster."
Retweeted by Ryan Ward
Rob Pelinka: "Frank has done an outstanding job as the head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers. ... We see him as a strong part of our future for sure."
Rob Pelinka said he'd do the Andre Drummond move "something we would do again and again" in retrospect. Sounds like Drummond may have a future in LA.
Pelinka: “We feel like the roster we had this year was a championship caliber roster and obviously there were a lot of things that came into the mix beyond our control that kept us from winning a championship."

Frank Vogel on if he's had extension talks with the Lakers: "I really just prefer for those conversations to remain private. ... Obviously, I love it here. I love this organization."
Frank Vogel on Jason Kidd: "He should be at the top" of any team's list searching for a new head coach.
Frank Vogel hopes Andre Drummond is a Laker "for a long time."
"Not at all." Andre Drummond didn't think he and Anthony Davis were able to showcase what they can really do playing alongside one another.
Andre Drummond on if he intends to return to the Lakers: "When that time comes around, we'll have those discussions."
Andre Drummond on stint with the Lakers so far: "I think overall this year I had an incredible time. ... I'm looking forward to building more with them."
Dudley thinks the #Lakers’ collective IQ wasn’t at a championship level this year and specifically cited the loss of Rajon Rondo. “But with that being said, if Anthony Davis was healthy, we’d be fine."

Jared Dudley says "consistency" is the key to LeBron's sustained success at his age. Called LeBron "the most consistent athlete I've ever been around."
Jared Dudley thinks the Lakers can be a title contender next season with "a couple tweaks" to the roster.
