will be in the states for a couple of weeks, will be there again next year for a month but wanted to just try a short trip after covid. so hoping to catch some magic games, including GS and Mavs (well luka)
The Magic should be fun to watch this season. I love some of the picks they've made.. They'll still struggle to win more than 25 games but they'll be a lot more competitive game to game.

Franz Wagner was one of the most underrated rookies from last year and he's been killing it at Eurobasket. Banchero looks like a man-child and has a nice jumper.. Bamba and Carter are good young bigs.. Suggs needs to stay healthy. Cole Anthony is a good scorer.. Hopefully Isaac and Fultz can stay healthy .

I think Mosley is a good coach too. I remember when he was playing in the NBL and dunking on everyone..

I hope you get to see the teams you want.

Ime Udoka suspended for the season. Considering stepping down from Head Coach and the Celtics organization. Really tough outgoing for the Celtics.

He hooked up with a female staff member in a consensual relationship. He'll be fined and suspended some games, but not fired.

Although more importantly, I thought he was married to Nia Long's fine ass so I assume that's over. Haha
I would be shocked if he did not leave.

Is he signed long term as Boston coach? What's his contract worth?

While he may have broke team protocol, I would have thought given the sensitivity of the matter and lives involved there would be confidentiality around it. Weird the way this has gone down. It does fuck things up for Boston. He's an excellent coach that managed to get the best out of a good roster. They have a great roster this season with addition of Brodgon and Gallo (although he may be injured?) - this drama is not what Boston needs.

In saying this, Frank Vogel looks like he might get a gig for the year.

Don't know what his contract is worth but he did get a 4 or 5 year deal. He's pretty insistent on staying and I don't think they want to fire him after he took them to the finals.

They're talking a one year suspension with the assistant taking over. We'll see if any of that changes. Either way it's not ideal and a completely unnecessary drama that you don't expect your head coach to put the team in.
