Weekly NBA Game Thread: Week of May 10th, 2021

As I gaze upon thee for one final time, my heart, the NBA standings

NBA: New York Knicks at Brooklyn Nets Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

Every Monday at 5:00 PM Central this all-purpose thread goes up, and the comments section is where it’s going down. This is your place to discuss all the NBA’s action happening during the week when the Bucks are off-duty.

Well folks, let’s kick out the jams one more time before The Week to End All Weeks kicks off:

What a strange season, and what a strange set of standings. The possibilities, oddly enough, are still pretty limitless for how the final bracket may shake out between our maybe clawing the two seed, a team like the Celtics or Lakers comically crashing out in contemptible fashion from the play-in tourney, the Kings (???) sneaking their way into a play-in spot, the Knicks/Hawks/Heat changing seeding position on a rolling 24-hour basis, etc.

Anyways, since everything is made up and nothing matters, let’s all agree to gather our collective mind strength and root for Team Chaos. That means the Lakers in the play-in, the Celtics falling down another seed, our playing the Hawks in the first-round (that series will simply be known as “DiVincenzovic”), and whatever we have to do to get the Bulls agonizingly close to the 10th seed only to miss out and essentially waste an entire year for nothing of actual worth.

The NBA: Where chaos happens!
