While there may be some local consternation over Dwyane Wade describing the Philadelphia 76ers as "the future of the National Basketball Association", its present reminded itself and its various nations just how easy it is to retain its hold on the driver's seat. Golden State cannot stick Draymond Green on Davis all the time like they would have done against other star players because Davis can outmuscle and outleap him to a horrifying extent. But Davis' rising global star power is on full display.
The New Orleans Pelicans are unlikely to offer the All-Star center a five-year, max contract when he becomes a free agent this offseason, ESPN's Zach Lowe reported Tuesday, citing sources familiar with the discussion. He averaged 11.3 points, 13.3 assists and 7.5 rebounds per game in the Portland series, with complete effort on both ends of the floor. In the loaded Western Conference, however, this only translated to a one-game advantage in regular season record over the Pelicans. Casey altered the team's offense to reduce the reliance on getting the two guards into the pick-and-roll (Portland got more offense from the PNR than any other team this year, as Toronto did last year), and the Raptors were a better team for it.
DeMarcus Cousins shouldn't expect a visit from the proverbial Brink's truck. Pelicans power forward Nikola Mirotic averaged 18 points and 9.2 boards per game to help the cause. His poor play in the playoffs will stick with him until he is able to win games more consistently. Returning to New Orleans certainly seems like a good option for him, but teams like the Los Angeles Lakers and Dallas Mavericks might show serious interest in Cousins. They have a modern, spacious, permanent practice facility on the same campus as Saints headquarters and a team-friendly arena lease that runs through 2024.

Having played in just eight playoff games, Davis is averaging 32.3 points (258 points total) in the postseason.
Playoff Rondo is also a real thing. You have Anthony (Davis) there.
The guard battle of Curry and Klay Thompson versus Jrue Holiday and Rajon Rondo will be fantastic to watch.
Davis wants Rondo back next year as well, and very well may get his wish.
Game one of this Western Conference Semifinals begins on Saturday. "This is just one check mark of the bigger goal that we have in mind".
