You've got the 2nd and 3rd seed playing in the conference finals in both the EC and WC.

Also, I'm pretty sure the beard would cause to much drag for a swimmer.

Honestly, OKC to make the playoffs is a hotter take than the Knicks.

If that happens Shai is probably an MVP contender.

Just quietly sneaking in here to change my 6th Man of the Year to Alex Burks.

Don't mind me, I'll close the door behind me as I go.
