    That is categorically incorrect. If not for a collapse in the 4th quarter last night, the dubs would have won comfortably. I still think the Spurs win, but they are by no means 'too good to lose'. Warriors could easily win 4 out of the remaining six.

    Oh, fo show!

    I dont get Carmelo. I watched his entire tourney run at Syracuse, and in NO WAY did he look to be a selfish player. He looked like a typical NBA super-superstar, the type obsessed with winning. He gets to the association, and, he becomes a ball-hog who could give a frick if any teammate of his scores or gets involved.

    Amazing....

  • This Thunder/Griz series is going to 7, with a couple of OT games in there for sure. Fascinating series, and KD is on another planet at times.

    I'm interested to see if the Bulls can follow up Monday's unexpected success. I love that team right now, and Thibideau is a fantastic coach for being able to have a cobbled-together makeshift team play like that. top 5 coaches in the league, in no particular order: Thibs, Hollins, Pop, Karl, Rivers. Any disagreements on that?

    Yea, but every basketball fan who knows anything about the NBA would love to have him on their team. I can't stand him, but would love to have a guy like him on the Blazers.

    That was just a really stupid exchange between the 2 of them. Mohammed put a little extra into that foul, it was a good foul, gotta do that when someone is running open to the hoop, but he put a little stank on the contact, LeBron over reacted and Mohammed took it to another level.

    I see nothing wrong with Mohammed getting the boot from that. I may be biased though.

    I said it was a terrible trade when it happened, and it's still a terrible trade now for OKC.

    Daryl Morey torched Sam Presti in that trade.

    If they let Lebron do his thing, just focus on him trying not to be too much of a playmaker, Conley & Gasol should be able to do whatever they want vs Chalmers & Bridman, Tony Allen should totally shut down Wade - especially if he is still injured - and just get Z-Bo to be real physical and beat up Bosh scaring him off the court???

    Or am I just delusional and want the Heat to lose too badly?

    We have a lottery pick from toronto this year, another first rounder from Houston this year and our natural first rounder, also another first from houston next year. Plus Jeremy Lamb, and Martin produces fairly well most of the season. That, and we couldn't give Harden what he wanted and deserved. I think we'll be fine. Thanks for your concern, though.

    San Antonio found 2009, and somehow added more long and athletic players..it may just work.

  • I genuinely think the Spurs could beat the Heat. As much as I like the Grizzlies and think watching them is fun, I think the Spurs are gonna roll this series in 4 or 5, and I think that the Pacers will push the Heat to 6 or possibly even 7 games, giving the Spurs a decided advantage.

    Going to be interesting.

    Agreed, the Spurs will roll the Grizzlies.

    The Grizzlies offense matches up perfectly with what San Antonio can do; man up from the halfcourt line to the hoop. You cant win against San Antonio methodically working the ball down court. It's just a REALLY bad match-up for the Grizzlies.

    The Heat play in between fast-break and halfcourt, so San Antonio will be in it. Also, the Heat will always be succeptable to good PG and big man play. Duncan's the most boring, yet efficient offensive big man, ever. He can out play Bosh, even though I Bosh is hugely underrated. OUtside of Duncan, everyone on San Antonio is apparently at least 6'9", with wigspan and defensive intensity.

    I SHOULD root for Memphis so the Heat can roll 'em, and Stern doesn't get great ratings. But, what else would I watch? The Mariners? Reality TV like all you girls?
