  1. Why should Eastern teams not legitimately try to compete because of LeBron when it has not stopped Western teams from going 3–3 against LeBron in the finals during his prime (and it very easily could have been 5–1)?
  2. DeMar is shooting 20 times per game since Lowry has been out. Considering the work-load, his efficiency has actually been very strong.
  3. A better course would be maxing out Lowry, re-signing Ibaka and Tucker, paying a shitload in luxury tax, and just accepting that you have a two-year window (after this one) and you’re then going to be terrible and in cap hell for 2–3 years after that. They can re-build/tank then.
