    Default Pelicans and Kings eliminated from 2020 NBA playoff contention

    The Pelicans and Kings will officially miss the 2020 NBA playoffs.

    The final West spot will go to either the Grizzlies, Blazers, Suns or Spurs.

    The East was finalized a day or two ago, as the Wizards, who had almost no shot at making the playoffs, were officially eliminated.

    expect the whistles to get even worse against the suns. the disparity between fouls in the suns v dallas games was hilarious.

    If you're running the Pelicans what's the biggest extension you would offer Ball?

    The suns will probably follow suit soon. Unless they can produce a great upset against the spurs, blazers and grizzlies in the final seeding, then their current 5-0 standing in the bubble will be all for nothing.

    The league is very strong. Pelicans have basically two Pippens and still can’t clinch a spot

    You only get to rob the Pels once because their superstar wanted out and told other teams he wouldn't stay.

    Pels a promising playoff future with Darius Miller and Miriotic just 24 months ago


    To bottom of the West under muh young core doe. Not just Hart, Ball and Ingram either - but Julius too.


    David Griffin freshly served an expansion team haul of top picks and still wet the bed. The mastermind that pulled off the holy Mozgov and Shumpert heist. GM of year winner similarly with COTY's Blatt, Ty Lue (nm: Brown). Can't seem to find the pattern


    Anywho, keep your head up Slovenian fam any year now they 5th year toddlers will EXPLODE and cement that +.500 record. No Doubt!

    I hope so. It would have been awesome as well if the spurs can still also clinch this year but this time is really different. They'd probably kissing goodbye rn to that long postseason streak but they shouldn't feel bad about that because this year has been tainted so much already anyway. So..

    Surprised at how bad the Pelicans were in the bubble. I do like the March Madness vibe of the Western Conference chase for the 8 seed. Some teams you would expect more out of them have faltered and others have shined. The Phoenix Suns are like the team in college basketball that was crap all year and then went on a run in their conference tournament to make the big dance. Nobody would have had them in better shape at this point than the Pelicans. The Pelicans were supposed to be what this was all created for in order to get them in.

    It was really supposed to be a Grizzlies/Pelicans play-in, but both teams have been bad, and Portland got healthy during the Pandemic. At least Memphis had a difficult schedule. Pelicans had the easiest one. Probably should have put Zion back in the final minutes against the Jazz.

    If there was a conspiracy against the Suns, it would have already happened. The NBA isn't rigged. If it was rigged, Zion would be in the playoffs.
