Damn, NCAA made Jim Boeheim vacate 108 wins, dropping him to sixth all-time. Considering his age, I wonder if he'll ever officially get to 1000 wins, now.

Hard to say. The NCAA report was pretty scathing, someone there really hates Boeheim for whatever reason. Unless it comes out that Boeheim had no knowledge of the players failing their classes or drug tests or receiving the unsanctioned gifts and that it was strictly assistants doing this behind his back then I doubt he'll ever get those wins back. I still remember the mysterious circumstances behind Fab Melo's on-again-off-again eligibility years ago, I suppose that was the smoke and this explains the fire.

This also reminded me that the NCAA is still investigating Roy Williams and UNC's Men's Basketball team. Who knows when the hammer will drop on them, but when it does it could be as severe or more severe than this sanction.

I like VCU, but I don't like this match-up. I'm afraid VCU might not make it pass the Buckeyes. Wichita State Vs. Kansas should be a hell of a game to cap off the weekend, though.

Also, how the hell did UCLA get into the NCAA tournament? I had them pegged for a high NIT seed considering they beat absolutely no one of note this season.

And with saying that, UCLA barely managed to squeak by SMU with that goaltending call for the 3. I'm really surprised they called that since it was nowhere near going into the basket but hey I'm glad they won but SMU got screwed by that call.

This is what the NCAA's rules on goaltending are. The problem is that the "possibility, while in flight, of entering the basket" is not apparent in this play since the ball had no chance of going in. Plus the ref that called it was like 30 feet away so he couldn't have possibly been able to see that the ball wasn't going to go in.

Actual Ohio State player D'Angelo Russell: ""I wear the number 0 because that's the number of people in the country that can guard me."

Also, when asked who the best defender he faced this season was he said, "Nobody. I don’t feel like I can give anybody that credit.”"

He then went 3 for 19.

Hoping Tom Izzo can keep tossing his magic monkey wrench into the machine with a win over Duke tonight. Les Moonves is no doubt masturbating furiously over a Duke-Kenticky final, but I think that as a basketball fan that a national title win for Izzo or Ryan would mean more to the sport and each respective coach. Izzo has made 7 Final Fours but only won the title once while Ryan is a legendary D-III coach but has never won the D-I title.

I also saw the secondary logos too and they look pretty nice - http://news.sportslogos.net/2015/04/13/milwaukee-bucks-honour-history-move-into-future-with-new-logos/. Kind of a throwback to the old color scheme they had before 1993.

I kind of laughed when I first saw the original article, cause it was posted like two days after the Wizards lost to the Nets by about 40, and Pierce played so little in the two teams' games together I literally didn't know he was signed with the Wizards until I saw this article.

I guess it is true that the Nets seem like they want to be that team that succeeds by buying up big established veterans, but Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, and Pierce and Garnett are the only ones they really did that with, and I'd say Johnson is the only one of those four that had any real big impact with the Nets so far.

I was never really sold on the Old Man Nets from a year ago, and that was before I even thought about any chemistry issues. Prokhorov & Billy King really fucked that franchise up with the Isiah Thomas Special, they won't be competitive for years now and I don't really blame their hipster fans for not giving a shit about the team. Also, good lord is Deron Williams terrible now. It seems that he's come down with the same disease that sapped Roy Hibbert of all of his talent. It's insane to remember the heated debates that were had years ago about Deron Williams Vs. Chris Paul regarding the league's best PG.

They're not that horrible. They need better players besides decent guys that are on their third or fourth team for not cutting it elsewhere, but they're hanging around and could probably improve with one or two legitimate acquisitions. I mean just this year they got the big upside in that Garnett/Young trade, since Brooklyn got a hot young player that's already improved them and all Minnesota got out of the deal was an old dog's nostalgia.

I'm not shocked, and it doesn't bother me, but I think this year's MVP race is just another notch on the age old argument of what "valuable" means. Without Curry I think Thompson would have stepped up like a middle class man's Russell Westbrook and the Warriors still would have made the playoffs, just not as a historically dominant #1 seed.

Without Harden, though, and I don't have the Rockets even making the playoffs. Especially considering the loss of Beverly and the quasi-part time nature of Howard. To me, I consider Harden more "valuable" to his team than Curry is to the Warriors. At the same time, I would consider Curry the more offensively dominant player, with Harden second. If there were MVP and MOP (Most Outstanding Player, possibly with an MOP for Offense and an MOP for Defense replacing Defensive Player of the Year) awards and I had votes in each, Harden would be my vote for MVP and Curry would be my vote for MOP.

The entire team came down with Ebola. Good lord, what the fuck was that? What a putrid way to end Tom Thibodeau's Bulls tenure. It will be interesting to see which team wins the Thibs sweepstakes over the summer. Bulls might as well re-hire Vinny Del Negro as coach since Forman and Paxon are such shmucks. I;m guessing they won't sign Butler to a max deal, either, so next year looks to be a tanking year for the Bulls. I wouldn't be surprised if they trade away Gibson for draft picks, too.

I was a bit mad because I wanted the Knicks to get towns but then I realized the Knicks are building through free agency anyway. So I'll save my anger when they give too much money for Durant or Pao Gasol.

Besides Being in the draft lottery doesn't guarantee future success. Minnesota has been in the lottery for years

He seserves any and all scorn when a player as great as him whines, flops, and continually tries to stack the deck instead of creating depth around him. The Heat crumbled when Bosh and Wade went down and the same is happening with the Cav's now that Love and Irving have gone down. Cav's deserve to be swept by an average of 20 points per game, anything less than that hsould be considered a minor victory for a team that's just mediocre to utter shit around LeBron.

Almost no kids are physically ready to play pro football at 18 although I'm sure teams would take a chance on younger kids. The 3 year rule is good for letting them build themselves up. The real issue is that kids can't sell their likness or sell autographs which is bullshit, it creates "scandals" that shouldn't even be issues. Bribes are one thing, but that's just stupid.

NFL teams should be able to either draft the rights of 18 year-olds or bid on their draft rights, similar ot how MLB teams can draft 18 year-olds and develop them in the minors and how NBA teams now can draft international kids and let them develop in their respective league until the NBA team deems the kid ready for NBA ball.

yeah, the problem is that the NFL & NBA largely treat colleges as their "farm system" or minor leagues. South Park poked fun at the NCAA with "Crack Baby Basketball", but the pro leagues don't get nearly enough blame when this debate comes up...

It's weird when the NCAA preaches about "amateurism" but they have no problems making money hand over fist from the student athletes' work. It's one thing if the money raised goes to the schools, or even the coaches, but way too many other dudes are getting rich from bowl bids, uniform deals, TV rights to games, video games, etc... The easiest & most complete fix is to get the kids out of the NCAA as quickly as possible.

Of course, then NBA & NFL wouldn't like that because it would make running teams in their leagues more expensive.

>The real issue is that kids can't sell their likness or sell autographs which is bullshit, it creates "scandals" that shouldn't even be issues.

This. Baseball, hockey and even soccer have minor league systems in place that makes playing in college essentially optional. I mean NBA has the D-League but that's basically their version of NXT and the NFL doesn't have NFL Europa anymore, which didn't really work and lost them money. But the NCAA is essentially making money off the backs of so-called student-athletes in exchange for giving them an education that they really can take advantage of unless you're someone like Richard Sherman.

I know it happens. I just don't understand the college sports star worship, especially by adults - which is what I was trying to imply as being the "real problem" & leads to college sports being the high stakes money grab that it is.

These are athletes who, by definition, are not even at the highest level of their sport! If you want some sports memorabilia, aim higher! How would Matt Leinart autographs be holding up, in either resale or sentimental value today?

In any case, a grown ass man should not want to buy a college kid's autograph, and no one should be selling autographs to little kids.

It's a nostalgia thing, people go to school at a certain university and follow the teams there, then continue to follow them through adulthood. So a 50 year old guy loves his college team's new star and wants an autograph, he can afford it he's got money at this point and whatever, it's essentially a donation to something he enjoys. It's not malicious is the real point, nor does it have any impact on the competition of the game. There are worse things to give money to, sports are probably the most popular hobby in the world so I'm not sure why you're wondering why people enjoy them.

You don't have to put words into my mouth, and don't confuse buying an autograph of a college athlete with "enjoying sports". "Enjoying sports" is different from "enabling college kids to associate with scummy boosters, promoting a system that profits off college students and gives them relatively nothing in return, and/or do something against the rules of the NCAA".

>it's essentially a donation to something he enjoys.
Most of the time, it's a donation to a scummy reseller. It's malicious because it promotes these scummy resellers to hook up with the athletes and then get them suspended (like what happened to Gurly).

I know i'm being a bit of a pessimist here, because even if the NCAA changes the rules around this, I can't see them giving the lion-share of the money to anyone but themselves, and it would do the athletes the most good to get out of the NCAA as quickly as possible.

Hence the rules should be changed and it would just be innocent fan service on the part of anyone buying or selling signed memorabilia.

Like they'd still do fine if they let kids have a share, but they just wont because they're greedy lol

Ya'll niggas need to give the Cavs credit for how far they got. I mean, the finals basically came down to the Cavs' C-Team going up against the Warriors' A-Team. Had they still had Irving and Love, this would have been a completely different narrative. When you're that far down on team members, every, everyone is going to be exhausted. Had the Cavs made half the shots they missed, it would have been a different game. Mozgov alone in the beginning could have changed the ending of the game had he not whiffed all those times he did. As great as he was defensively, he fucked up so many times offensively. And those fucking free throws... Even LeBron couldn't hold it together.

And LeBron; he gave it his all. He alone is not enough to carry the team but his leadership certainly made that band of misfits competitive. Seriously, that eleventh-hour drive had me on the edge of my seats. 30 seconds to go with a 4 point spread... there was a legit opportunity for the Cavs to either put the game into overtime or even possibly win that game and they were threatening to do so. As far as I'm concerned, if you don't have respect for the Cavs and LeBron James for what they did with such little, then you're an insufferable cunt who takes pleasure in kicking the underdog when they're down. The Cavs where a long shot to win it but you need to at least recognize that team was lead by a skilled sniper.

It is what it is and the Warriors beat a team that was running on fumes. Pure and simple. That's not to say the Warrior's are villains for winning against an outmatched opponent. This series was legit one of the best in years and it was hard-fought on both sides and the Warriors deserve their victory. I wish the Cavs would have won but they couldn't do it. They ran out of steam.

Completely agree. I'm glad my Spurs redeemed themselves against LeBron last year, but I love the way he plays, and really wanted to see him will his team to the title. I think next year will be LeBron's redemption season like the Spurs had last year. They'll probably drop Love, get Kyrie back (somewhat healthy), and most likely get a real 6th man and add two mid level scorers. They can play defense well, but getting some drivers and a consistent shooter will do them wonders.

Jimmy Butler says he wants a one year deal this season before cashing in in 2016. I can see him taking a sizeable, but still conservative contract that will allow him to attempt to win a ring in Cleveland, or he could cash in heavy on a shit show like LA or NY and then ride off with a big contract to a playoff team.

Butler's not leaving Chicago unless Forman & Paxon dsn't want him there. He wants a one year because the salary cap is going to explode in 2016, same reason Lebron onyl has a two year deal with Cleveland: they're cashing in on that new salary cap in 2016, but they aren't leaving their current teams. Any player that opts out of their contract this year needs to fire their agent because everyone is getting paid in 2016, but not if you sign a multi-year deal in 2015.

True, but Butler could take a one year deal with a legit playoff contender and make the same kind of money in one year that he would make with Chicago. I get the feeling that he wants to be "The" superstar on a team, and he can't be that in Chicago unless Rose's knees blow out again and everyone gives up on him.

As much as I'd love to see Rose return to MVP form, I think realistically he's much closer to Brandon Roy 2.0 than the Derrick Rose of old. Butler can be lights-out for Chicago, he doesn't have to sign with a shitty team just to be their alpha dog. With Rose, Noah, and Gasol breaking down around him Chicago is Butler's team now.

I agree, but Rose is still loved, and if he stays healthy enough to play 75% of the season each year, that town is gonna always view him as their #1.

The only reason I think Butler could head off to a shit show like LA or NY is that he would make max money this season, have the opportunity to win them some games, and then in the next offseason with the increased cap, they could throw him a max contract and align him with multiple max contract players since they're big market cities. Both of those franchises are gonna get a top 3 player this year, and NY has Carmelo. Even Miami could be added to the mix if Wade walks away.
Edward Cisslehack - Sat, 20 Jun 2015 18:05:21 EST ID:5QpQGPKQ No.29480 Ignore Report Reply

Oh yeah, Bulls fans will forever love Rose pretty much no matter what, but I think Rose understands that he likely will never be able to play as reckless as he used to and instead will need to facilitate more on offense, and that would involve creating opportunities for Butler to score. I also think Rose is a pretty humble guy and wouldn't have a problem seeing Butler excel.

It will be interesting to see how Hoiberg handles the team, though. I suppose if he and Butler don't mesh as well as Butler and Thibs did then it's possible Butler could leave. I wonder if the Bulls would try to trade Gasol and go with a backcourt of Noah-Gibson-Mirotic instead since a 4-deep backcourt doesn't really benefit everyone in real life as much as it does in a video game. Gibson and Mirotic are obviously more valuable, but I think trading either would be a huge mistake considering Gasol's in his twilight and playing with house money now and Noah is sadly breaking down, like all big men not named Tim Duncan or Kareem Abdul-Jabbar do.

Aldridge met with the Lakers again today, reportedly only speaking with Kupchak and Scott to focus on basketball and not superficial Los Angeles bullshit. I don't think they'll complete the Hail Mary and convince him to sign, though. My money's on him signing with the Spurs, and that Spurs team with Aldridge would be fucking terrifying. Supposedly Aldridge is meeting with the Heat, too, but I have no idea how he fits in there with Bosh and Whiteside.

I wonder why people don't just retire quietly, but it will give him a bump in jersey sales, will give the lakers a bump in ticket sales (seriously, his last game in philly was the most packed the arena has been in years), and then i think back to chipper jones' retirement tour and how he was treated like a god in every stadium he visted for the last time.

yes, that's the point, and you shared it with us. that's what he wants. as a wrestling fan, you should realize he's "working the marks, brother", and as someone watching this season of south park, you should know that your post nothing more than an ad for Smith (not even paid content or is it?). it's literally his job to stay stupid stuff and get people to complain about it.

Not really. Almost every bad team does it. Once it's clear you're not going to make the playoffs you sit your starters and try to lose as much as possible. It's true in baseball, football, hockey, and basketball. Usually teams will hire a coach and promise them job security just for the tank, one who can teach younger players well.

The sixers are an example of a failed version of this. They've been tanking for years, so they only have young players. Without older, better players to teach them how to act and how to play in the big leagues they're not doing as well as they could. Meanwhile a team like the Cubs is making the playoffs after years of being terrible because they got a ton of great draft picks.

that's why sports like ice hockey & basketball have a draft lottery, so even if you do tank, there's no guarantee you'll get the top pick.

there is enough parity in the NFL that it doesn't make sense to tank a whole season. by the time a team's season is lost, there are only a few games left and so they don't have as much control to determine where they'll end up in the standings.

the draft isn't as important in baseball as it is in other sports, so baseball teams are not likely to tank.

they always had a 3 year tank plan. you can't really call it a failure until they are losing next year.

what's also miserable is going back like 30 years only 9 different NBA franchises have won the championship, with many teams winning 2 or 3 in a row. it really is a league based on superstars, and no one is going to trade a superstar away.

what happens is teams get stuck in this limbo for years where they are always low seed in the playoffs, so they legit have no shot to win in the playoffs, and also get a terrible pick.

let's be real for once

The cavs would have won if Kyrie was 100% healthy and if they didn't shoot 30%
Blatt shouldn't have played bench players do much and the mistakes made by the cavs really fucked them over
the issue wasn't defense but rather offense
Love really should have made those hooks and Lebron really should have tried to penetrate and make those off-glass shots
I get that they don't have a Carmello type of player but Kyrie didn't even focus on those mid-long range shots, he just passed the ball and they took those shots and missed, with that said I was happy with JR's 3's
Also, cav's freethrows are straight garbage
They really need to work on more plays and pace, they are predictable

Pistons-Cavs should have been much closer but bad decisions by the Pistons sunk their chances at an upset. Drummond should have eaten the Cavs alive in the paint with the Cavs opting not to play a center but he put up a dud. Reggie Jackson killed his team by playing hero ball those last 5-6 minutes, too.

Pistons are too young with no veteran leadership. Can't stay in control late in games and stay focused and so their defense completely evaporates and their offensive movement becomes sloppy or nonexistent. Beating the Cavs was going to be a major upset anyways, but they really should have been able to push the series to at least 6 games considering how flawed of a team Cleveland is despite the top seeding. I was looking forward to another '07 Mavs-Warriors or '09 Bulls-Celtics but instead the Pistons are going to be swept now.

Also, this entire first round has been dreadful. Hopefully the next round produces some actually exciting games and series.

Curry's injury was wild. Someone knocked over Montajunas and the dude slide across the top of the key like 5 feet and it left a giant, sweaty wet spot on the court and so like half a second later Curry ran over it and luckily didn't blow his knee out when he slipped and did some quasi-splits. He has a bad sprain, though, so he won't even be doing rehab for another 10 days or so.

There's a good chance Curry will be back for the Conference Finals against the Spurs, but who knows if he'll be at 100% by then. If he can't cut and drive on that knee, or worse, re-injures it right away then I don't think the Warriors will beat the Spurs.

Not so much dependent, but he's the league MVP for a reason so it hurts their chances against fellow elite teams with him not there. I think the Warriors can beat anyone in the league without Curry in a 7 game series except for the Spurs. Maybe the Cavs, too, but I'm still not sure what to make of that team. They're so wildly inconsistent and have a lot of team chemistry issues that it feels like a crapshoot on how they'll perform on a game-by-game basis.

Yeah, I was shocked how badly the Spurs collapsed after the first game. They rolled so many teams, including the Thunder, during the regular season and then after that first came it was like the entire team contracted AIDS. Hate to see Tim Duncan go out like that but it seems like it's time.


Yeah, this series should be a lot of fun. As much as I was looking forward to Warriors-Spurs in the Western Conference Finals, if this Thunder team can keep up the ridiculous play they showed against the Spurs then that combined with what they did against the Warriors in the regular season might mean this series will be both close and exciting.

Thompson looked like the real MVP of the Warriors, down by 20 late into the third he cut the lead in half with Curry on the bench.

I would like to see Lebron end Cleveland's suffering (imagine this and the cubs win the WS later in the year too)

Also we'll get no more discussions of Lebron's legacy for hours on sportscenter, (probably replaced with Lebron vs MJ again).

It just gets bigger if he drops 40 game 7 on the road against a record breaking team. His legacy forcing a game 7 against a record breaking team is still pretty good.

That was legit one of the best game 7s. LeBron with that block, the drama of him getting hurt, when.he missed that first free throw I thought he would miss the second and Curry would tie it. Curry made it so obvious he would chuck a three, thought he should have passed it or make a quick two and foul.

But LeBron made the second and was amazing. It's also a great story from returning to the Cavs, losing the title in 2015, and then all of this.

so bummed about how Rose's career as a Bull turned out, not that it's his or anyone's fault really. i just remember how amazing he was for a short time and get nostalgic about watching him play (that series with the Celtics in what 09? or whenever that was comes to mind even though I think the Bulls lost). a rough mix of team identity (Thibs was great imo but he was very defensive minded) and of having talent around him and under performing, injuries and all that made it so that he never really reached his true potential even though he grabbed an MVP way back when.

sucks, if things had gone differently he probably could have won a title or two with the Bulls. as for the trade itself, i'm very meh on it. at first i thought it was just a straight cash dump but with the players the Bulls got it's almost completely even in terms of who they got and traded away from a money stand point. i like Lopez a lot even if he's a bit streaky, Calderon seems like an old PG who has had his own injury problems so I'm not thrilled about him, and I don't even know who the third guy is. i liked Holliday but he only really showed up for stretches, not so bummed about losing him.

shit just looking at the Bulls PG/SG situation is depressing right now, it's a mix of no name young guys and old journeymen, and Butler if he can stay healthy. the roster still looks alright (as long as Pau plays another year) but it's not a real contender. RIP

Bulls dumping Rose's salary and a goddamned draft pick for Jose Calderon, Brook Lopex and Marquis Teague 2.0 is absolutely heinous. Foreman and Paxon have completely ruined a contender in just two years. Bulls are going to be a lottery team next season and they're going to be trotting out a starting lineup of Aaron Brooks, E'Twuan Moore, Doug McDermott, Bobby Portis, and Christiano Felicio after the trading deadline as the entire United Center fills up with vomit while Gar Foreman and John Paxson keep blowing copious amounts of smoke up Reinsdorf's asshole as they assure him that Chicago has a real shot at signing Russell Westbrook. What a fucking crock of shit the Bulls front office is.

You got it backwards, the Knicks are gunning for a playoff birth next season and the Bulls are imploding their team for a rebuild. If everyone stays healthy then the Knicks most definitely can be a lower seed in the East with Porzingis, Anthony and Rose. That could potentially be a dangerous offensive team, too, because all three cover so much ground on offense: Porzingis for big guy 3's and post play, Carmelo for mid-range and post mismatches, and Rose for drives to the hoop and running the offense/passing. Hell, if Rose can find his three-point touch (and, I mean, ason-fucking-Kidd somehow ended up one of the greatest 3-point shooters in NBA history so anything's possible) then that adds another weapon to that offense. Afflalo is also a perfectly cromulent NBA shooting guard, too, so again, if the Knicks hit the health lottery then they have a solid Eastern Conference lineup to get them to the playoffs. The wild card with that team is how will their defense be. Hornacek isn't known for being a defensive guru so I'm wondering if the Knicks goofed by not hiring Thibs over Hornacek, but if Hornacek can get some mid-2000's Suns mojo going with this Knicks team then it'll be interesting.

Bulls are straight fucked this season, though. They'll be "playing" (read:losing) for a top 5 draft pick in 2017. No way they finish the season with Gibson, Gasol and Mirotic on the team, and if they can find a taker for Butler's remaining old max contract then he'll be gone for picks and the puu puu platter special, too.

Well, that definition is limited to those social circles
Example of it being used in a sentence:
>>"What posse are you with?"

>"Elm street piru bloods"

>or a derogatory term for a group of black people
Well, it's not exactly derogatory, only in the case of the caller being white. It's a word mostly limited to the african-american sub-culture. Think of it like "nigga": it's ok for blacks to use it as a term of endearment but it's less ok for a white person to say it. This is all stupid.

>What other examples has there been where "posse" was used as a racially charged insult?

Still not buying this. I can see the slight being that Jackson insinuated that LeBron's friends were hanger-on's and not business associates with the "posse" remark but I see zero racial connotation with the term and how it was used. It seems like a case of instead of focusing on the professional slight people instead tried to make this into a case of racism since Jackson is old and white. Except Jackson is old and white and is a revered NBA coach and not a single black man before ever accused him of being racist or even insinuating it and so the chances of Jackson suddenly becoming a racist are slim to none.

the reason women's basketball looks so awful is because it's still played like "old-school" basketball. i'd assume it's because most girls are not pursuing basketball as their future, cause the WNBA has so much less $ incentive. so the lifelong grooming that happens with male athletes isn't as present. i know on a men's team only a small percentage of guys will actually go pro, but I think that's even lower on women's teams. so you have to play this unathletic, uninspired style. women's basketball today is essentially played the way men's basketball was in the 50s.

So close yet so far, Miami. Hell of a run for a team considered one of the worst 3 or 4 teams in the league back in November, though.

I have no earthly idea what to expect from this Boston-Chicago series considering Chicago has been one of the most bizarre teams to watch this season. Do they show up? Do they take the Celtics to the limit like the scrappy Bulls team from 08-09? Does Wade shit in Rondo's locker and complete poising the Jimmy Butler well and they get swept? Do they beat the Celtics?

Same with the Cleveland-Indiana series. Paul George has been playing out of his mind these past couple of weeks, does the team keep firing on all cylinders and does George complete his ascension into league Top 5 status by taking down LeBron? Do the Cavs stop fucking around and start playing seriously now that they're in the playoffs and playing "games that matter"? Does Cleveland's hideous defense prevent them from reaching the Finals or were they just playing a season-long ruse and will stop giving up 120 points per game?

Also sweet Jesus that Western Conference bracket. I'm praying that the Clippers don't get past the Jazz because they'll just get annihilated by the Warriors for like the 4th straight year. Warriors-Jazz could be fascinating, premier offense vs premier defense. Houston-San Antonio in the second round should be great and Warriors vs either Rockets or Spurs in the Western Conference Finals will be one of those old-fashioned "real NBA Finals" conference finals match-ups because whoever gets out of the East has no chance in hell at winning this year unless the Cavs turn out to not be frauds after all.

Fuck yeah, NBA Playoffs.

Wade was daydreaming about playing with LeBron. Bulls had no hope of a title but it would have been hilarious if National TV Rondo carried them to either a sweep or 4-1 series victory like when the Don Nelson's Warriors obliterated his former Mavericks team as the 8 seed.

That's the point, though. He stacked the deck to win and then he get beat by a team that stacked the deck even further. It's poetic, but it still ruined the NBA along with superstars like LeBron embracing flopping instead of taking a stand against it.

Crazy stuff going down in LA at the moment. Lakers retooling almost their entire team in order to get Paul George and get rid of DeAngelo Russell since they're replacing him with Lonzo Ball.

Even with Ball, George, Brook Lopez, Brandon Ingram, and Jordan Clarkson I don't see how they could possibly compete with the Warriors in the West, or even the Spurs and Rockets. I guess this is just a gesture of good faith towards the fans in order to keep ticket sales up, but I figured at this point they'll sell out the Staples Center no matter what.

Also Bulls traded away Jimmy Butler for hopes and prayers with Kris Dunn, Zach Levine minus an ACL, and a Euro power forward to I guess redo their failed Mirotic pick from a few years back.

It could end up being for just one year of Paul, too, since he hits free agency after next season.

Meanwhile the Thunder somehow landed Paul George. I guess Danny Ainge hopes to create a championship team using all of those first round picks he's stockpiled instead of trading them for star players to win now. There are also reports that GM LeBron isn't taking much of a hands-on approach to free agency this year. Makes me wonder if he's going to opt out after next season to join everyone for that party brewing in LA.

Apparently he's fine, just rolled his ankle, but the Sixers aren't going to play with fate so they're sitting him anyways. Summer League is dumb, anyways. It's glorified NBADL tryouts that some teams pepper with the occasional rookie or sophomore to appease the NBA overlords so the trash games get at least someone to watch. He would only play with one or two guys that he would actually play with during the regular season so it's better for him to just practice with the team and play in the preseason games to build up chemistry.

They have the worst defense in the league. Even with LeBron that doesn't negate that fact. The introduction of Thomas to their offense seems to be going as well as a wet fart, too. It's pretty hilarious that Lue won't be fired for this since he bends over backwards for anything LeBron wants, but he's just a terrible head coach. Even funnier are the rumors that the Cavs are trying to shop Tristan Thompson and his retarded max contract Papa LeBron got him. Nobody is going to take on that retarded contract unless the Cav's throw in that Nets pick and more. In which case, they are going to be completely hammered next season and beyond without LeBron or any picks.

I was wondering what the hell happened to Luol Deng and was reading up on it. Interesting article, I had no idea that he's basically the richest banished player in the NBA. Kind of reminds me of when the Knicks paid Marbury to stay the hell away, although this is kind of like the opposite in that Marbury was a lazy prick and Deng by all accounts is respected and revered by everyone on the team and on the coaching staff.

Anyways, it's an interesting read.

Pacers once again ruining everyone else's fun. Oh well, don't see anyway classic Cav's LeBron playing hero ball trying to carry the entire team will work any better now than it did a decade ago.I'm guessing Toronto chokes again since they don't have anyone to guard LeBron (the Pacers' key weakness). Cavs-Sixers should be a great Eastern Finals, though, since I think Covington can actually cover LeBron and force whatever's left of Kevin Love and the rest of the Cleveland G-Leaguers to try and contribute to a win. Sixers Vs. winner of the Warriors-Rockets blood bath should be a fantastic Finals, though.

James is single-handedly murdering the Raptors right now; they have no one that can guard him. Guessing Cavs get the sweep as Raptors choke hard again.

Oh well, here's hoping this Sixers-Celtics series kicks up a notch tonight.

Raptors are completely broken, man. This was supposed to be the year for them, the year they finally lived up to the hype, and then LeBron went up to Toronto again and made them his bitch. I don't see them winning a game on a the road at this point.

Also, sweet jesus, that collapse by the Sixers last night. I was looking forward to a Sixers-Cavs East finals but I'm not sure if the Sixers can overcome the mindfuckery the Celtics are pulling off on them despite having the less-talented team. Great coaching really does go a long ways in the playoffs. It's not over until the Celtics win in Philly, though.

lol Celtics would get swept and blown out by 20+ points a game in a Finals against either the Warriors or Rockets. You're better off losing before the Finals so you can loudly complain about how you would have won if Irving and Hayward were healthy.

Sixers should have won more than one game in the series but they made far too many mistakes late. Credit to Stevens drawing up plays and putting the right guys on the court to fluster the young Sixers players late into playing so sloppily. Celtics don't have anyone that can guard LeBron, though, so it will be interesting to see if Stevens has any other tricks up his sleeve to pull out another improbable series win.

Not gonna lie, I'm glad to see the Cavs go up against Boston rather than Philly but that said, this match up just feels wrong without Kyrie. It would have been the series of Destiny after the way Kyrie left the Cavs on a sour note.

I agree that tonight's winner will hoist the Larry O'Brien, but nobody's getting swept. Attrition has taken its toll on both West teams, and both have shown vulnerabilities and played shockingly flat at times.

It's also really dumb to discount Lebron. Doesn't matter which side of the debate you're on regarding his greatness or relative-to-Jordan greatness, you don't have to look that far back to know that he can finish this.

Warriors are completely healthy and they have a guy that can actually guard LeBron (something the Raptors and Celtics didn't have), and they have three fucking guys that LeBron can't guard all at once that literally no one else on that Cav's roster can guard that can torch the Cavs because of it. LeBron can drop 80 and his disheveled team will still lose by 30 to this Warriors juggernaut. They have no chance at all. It's not discounting LeBron, it's discounting the Cav's because they have jack shit other than LeBron that matches up with the Warriors and you're not beating this sort of crazy good team 1-on-5 like LeBron could do in a pathetic Eastern Conference.

I agree, this Cavs team just isn't like the 2016 Cavs, and can I just say that the Warriors had one of the easiest roads to a championship I have ever seen? The only competition they had were the Rockets and the Warriors got incredibly lucky with CP3 near the end of the series. I'm not here to complain, but I can't remember the last time I hated a team so much, not even when the Lakers and Spurs were dominant, not even the Patriots piss me off this much.

Yeah, that CP3 injury was a real kick in the balls. I believe the Rockets would have beat the Warriors in either Game 6 or 7 had he been able to play because whenever the Rockets went cold they had no playmaking to mix things up and instead just kept playing iso and hurling bricks to the end.


He's a good role player at this stage of his career but the team doesn't make or break on him playing like the Cav's did with Kyrie and Love being healthy for LeBron (and now just Love, but even him being healthy can't perform a miracle this year), the Rockets with CP3, and the Celtics with Kyrie (and to a nebulous extent, Hayward, since we still don't know how well he meshes with this team). They'll do just fine without out him, and there's a chance he'll be able to play in the series anyways.

What happened at that game last night was basically two sides of the same coin: Yes the Rockets were hitting bricks, no one's going to deny that, but that's because when the second half started anytime the Rockets got any momentum going the refs would stop it. Taking away the momentum and killing their mental state is what caused them to throw those bricks because going to the paint would just fuck them.

But you say the Rockets should have stopped trying to make threes, why stray away from what's been working? We got so far because of it.

Of course r/NBA is cancer on crack so they keep wanking on "hurr derr Rockets chocked derr hurr", explain why a team of 3,4 superstars and MVP's needed the refs to help them win when they faced the only team that could threaten their chances of winning another championship? Explain why you get Scott Foster, a man who's been known to hate CP3 and just screw certain teams to conveniently officiate this game?

Sweet Jesus, I said earlier that I now hate this Warriors team more than the Patriots, well add the Cowboys to that list as well, and as a Texas guy it takes a special level of hatred to make me hate you more than those two combined.

You live and die on the 3. When they started bricking so many 3's they should have started running some ball screens and attack the paint to at least try something different, but also to get the Warriors to start cheating in a little bit towards the paint before trying to hurl threes on every possession again. I wouldn't say the Rockets choked because they legit were no longer the better team once CP3 went down.
