Title: NBA 2017 - 2018 Season
Post by: fast does lie on May 15, 2017, 02:06:25 pm
Looking to have a great discussion with basketball minds and those really sharp about bball, nba contract/bargaining, understand the game and traveling bball, and good with pattern recognition, team chemistry, human sports psychology, etc etc.

My prediction is that one of the most improved teams will be Brooklyn nets and Miami heat, depending on who they retain and get.

heat definitely.. not sure about the nets tho.

i'm not sure i'll be much use to the study group, i kind of fade in/out.

offseason signings will get us all amp'd up though.. imagine if we had predicted anything last time this year, before durant went to the biggest juggernaut in the NBA.. hah. this thread will explode in late june/july i imagine.

Nets were actually above .500 towards end of season or around .500 lol.... and they were like 5-60 before that... they beat some pretty tough teams like Memphis @ Memphis.

I see Nets as a problem next year for a lotta teams.... something is off with Orlando.... they were dissappointment compared to how much talent they had....

Lakers will be fun to watch, 6ers def. fun to watch with Ben Simmons running the point lol, and some tough young guns, they showed a lot of heart 2nd half of the season .... was #1 defense in the league from Jan - MArch ....... Charlotte needs some major change ups, MJ slacking on doing his job..... everyone need to go from the coach to some of the starters.... only Kemba, marvin, and some core players can stay....

well said.. hah.

I think lonzo will form into a solid player in the NBA, as long as he doesn't let the hype crush him. He's a decent 3pt shooter, good vision (assists), pretty athletic, good all around skills. He's got more of an "NBA style", me-first break down a D + create, ie he'll do better in the NBA vs NCAA. He's not going to come in and make a huge impact right away though IMHO.. He's going to need to get used to the speed difference. Players like De`Aaron Fox with NBA speed have locked him down on D. So he's going to have to get used to it, which I think he will.

Lavar is a joker obv.

The thing about Lonzo is that which team is just going to let him take over the point without proving anything? A lot of people can distribute and have the length he has AND more experience/ faster/stronger/better offensively etc: Elfrid Payton, Dennis Schroder, Ben simmons, Harden, Yannis Antedecouple (sp?), Reggie Jackson, etc.....

I guess there are a shortage of big pg's in the league... but that is because teams aren't willing to try something new.  Bball is evolving....

IMO the best way to play is to have alternate pg/combo guards controlling the point at the SAME time on the court.

Harden was GREAT pg during regular season competition, but during playoffs he lacked the nimbleness to get thru all out defense because of his size.... and that is when you need to have Pat Beverly run the point at times....

That is what Cavs do, sometimes having Lebron run the point, sometimes Kyrie.... because Kyrie is more nimble than Lebron, but Lebron can control the pace too and has the length to distribute.....

Yeah, if it's true, LA will be a beast obv.... they have so many talents just don't know how to in, also #2 draft pick.....

The East will be left with Kyrie, Giannis, Wall, lol..... the west will be stacked with WEstbrook, Lebron, Curry, Kwahi, Harden, Durant, Draymond, Klay, Davis, KAT....

WTF R 6ERS DOING!!!

THEY are trying to get Markel fultz, a total project imo, might be good but whatever..... they have tanked for seasons after seasons ..... getting some great players like simmons, that center, dario, and some sick role players.... they had #1 defense for long stretch last year and a sick winning streak.....

now is the time to start going 4 wins..... but they are reverting to old habits...... if it aint broke dont try to fix it ....... they dont need anymore talent, they need to start trying to get wins before its too late..... bulls tried that when mj left...... now look at what they have lolol
Title: Re: NBA 2017 - 2018 study group
Post by: fast does lie on June 18, 2017, 01:26:54 pm
6ers bout to trade for #1 pick so they can get Fultz..... i see fultz as a poor man's version of dame lillard.... so nothing too special.... this years draft is another joke imo.... roy to ben simmons even tho he's not really a rookie.....

6ers wtf by the time u think u can contend, ur talents will be like 40 ys old.... start now idiots.... before ben simmons tears an acl or something lolol.... he has like RVJ of 44 in at 6'11 lol .... an acl tear waiting to happen

joel embiid, ben simmons, covington, henderson, okafor, holmes, dario, tj mconnel, stauskas, cabarrot, sergio, j anderson, s long,

YOU CANNOT GET MORE STACKED THAN THIS..... everyone here plays with heart, has something special to offer man, they can either shoot lights out, defend, or rebound liek crazy..... no body here is a scrub!!!! and they all got size for their positions!!!!

Is Butler a better fit than Love? Love adds beast rebounding to his scoring .. not sure how this is a good move.

lol bulls just changed rosters again, like 30 times now since MJ retired.... at least tehy got lavine, hope he's recovering from that ACL

dwight howard moved again... not a bad pickup for charlotte, dwight is just a bit clumbsy.... if he had KAT skills... watchout...

i'm not sold on markelle fultz.... mavs got a good scorer with dennis smith jr.....

6ers a team to watch.... insanely stacked with players that play with heart....

as usual the big market teams sucking it up (ny, boston, la, chicago.....)

philly - simmons, embiid, fultz, covington, okafor, etc

minnesota - kat, wiggins, jimmy butler lol

milwaukee- giannis, parker, middleton, roy guard

some teams will just be atrociously bad..... with no ammo at all except some role players  ;D ;D ;D

ATL might go 0- 82 next year  ;D ;D ;D  they have literally 2 talented players - dennis shroder and tim hardway jr rofl.....

kyrie 'no longer wanting to play with Lebron' is interesting.. weird. just seems odd to go out like that..

Kyrie prob feels lebron is a bit overly dominant, cause after all they're both alpha dogs. I saw this coming from a million miles away. There'd be so many times Lebron would go up to Kyrie and be like "Good job" and then Kyrie would be like "No, no, you did a great job today" like "hey, you're not my mentor or nothing like that, I should be the one encouraging you...."

The fact that Kyrie is a bit underrated didn't help. He didn't even make an all nba team, being on a runner up, averaging 25.xx and shooting 47+ % from the field!!

Kyrie is a masterful at gamesmanship both on and off court..... he'd act like the loyal general under king lebron, but can only take it for so many years, and it build up.

They both are the head male in their families, both were 2nd to none on almost every team they played on from childhood.....

But back to the Lebron/kyrie fiasco..... i knew kyrie was one hell of a passive/aggressive motherfucker .... u can see it in his game.... personality wise ppl always thought he was a chill and humble guy, but when he flips out, he flips the fuck out.

A cool read on the Irving situation-

The most salient point in there is that if KI wants the limelight then where does he go that he'll be the top dog? Knicks without Melo maybe. San Antonio nope. Utah idk.

Also very excited to see what playing with Lebron does for Rose. Provided he can stay healthy that is.

UTAH would be DANGEROUS with Kyrie. They ran so many clear outs for Gordon Hayward last year, and he sucked it up. IMO Gordon Hayward is THE most overrated player in the league.  He does have some explosiveness, but his reach/wingspan is inferior for his height. He's certainly not a franchise player. He is a solid player, that is it.

Hopefully Lebron gets Drose on track. Drose is used to having big brothers as he is youngest of 4, while kyrie is the only male in family..... I really like the Drose/LBJ combo tbh.... Drose needs to get his mind right and strengthen his legs much more..... no more of that hot wings diet that he brags about

If these guys are dinosaurs, Lebron is a TREX, but Curry and kyrie are raptors..... both insane killers, the raptors might be even bigger killers than TREX.

Who's putting in work:

Melo has a motivating factor, he hasn't really won! Man he has a nice jumper

now OKC has Russ, PG13 and melo, pg13 and melo sort of play similar games/positions..... hopefully they know how to work together otherwise it will be another poor team.

but they could just start blowing out teams that is def possible.....

WOW.

that is SERIOUS. damn!!

I love this. How good does Adams feel right now.
Going to be interesting to see if their egos can take a backstep. Given none have rings I hope they can.

i think adams is cool, no one taking his spot. He's going to be the "enforcer" in there.

OKC has a serious squad right now..

this
just
got
interesting.

they need a seasoned vet who knows what it takes to win a ring to lead them / bind them. Paging D. Wade

Agree 100%. Does Wade go to OKC or CLE though?

Also, as far as lineups go it's going to be solid:

GSW- Durant, Curry, Klay, Green

CLE- Lebron, Thomas, Love, Rose

OKC- Westbrook, PG, Melo, Adams

i'd like to see Wade go to CLE... Lebron came to Miami, would be fun for Wade to "return the favor" and reunite with Lebron in CLE & get another ring. That'd be pretty cool.

Wade has to get PAID tho .. no more pay cuts, Miami did him dirty. So I doubt he'll end up going to CLE .. unless someone takes a pay cut for him. That'd be nice :)

Nah, D. Wade does no good for them. What's he going to do ? shout out words of encouragement while icing his knees half the game? Melo is wise enough tbh, George needs to take back seat to Russ and Melo.

They have pretty good team tbh..... they will be almost unbeatable at home..... the OKC crowd is insane....

Wade will do good if he goes to CLE, will make Lebron happy his homie is there.... and wade plays great in spurts nowadays.... will replace kyrie somewhat

Wow it actually happened.

To be honest, I don't think Cleveland nor Celtics will be as good as everyone thinks.

Cleveland really still doesn't have a proven explosive scoring guard (I don't count JR Smith and Rose haven't proven anything yet) Not sure how Dwade will be thru out the season, he's definitely going to have his moments still. IT out until Jan... and will he get as many calls as he did when he was in Boston?

My picks for sleepers this year (we'll see in January how right i am  ;D)

6ers, Minnesota will make playoffs this year.....

If you're a bball guy, you will see just how dangerous 6ers are. If everyone on the roster has not been getting worse or back tracking since last year.... oh my..... Just watch....

The NBA really pisses me off sometimes.

Last year they decided to "crack down on travels".  Not only did they NOT crack down on obvious travels, but they almost made many HORRIBLE travel calls on very debatable plays, particularly when a player catches the ball and quickly establishes pivot while jab stepping non pivot foot then dribbling.

Are some of those plays travels, possibly if we watch it on a high speed camera replay. It's definitely possible that the player lifts pivot before releasing the ball, but how can you determine that with the naked eye?

As bball players, we're wired to let go of the ball BEFORE releasing the pivot foot. I find it unbelievable that the refs can make so many travel calls on a lot of very legitimate looking catch-jab-dribble opposite direction plays.

It got so bad that almost EVERY time a player does a good/deceptive catch and drive, the refs would call a travel. This year it looks like they're going to make even WORSE calls the way they're calling it in the preseason. I've seen some really good jab step/drive opposite direction plays and it gets called travel, lolol.

How about calling some travels on legit 3.5 step layups? FUCKIN IDIOT REFS/NBA management.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Q682fS3vjk

As a fan and bball fantasy sport expert.... this really pisses me off.


These refs are SO FUCKIN retarded that Russ might have gotten away with this if he started tribblign on the 3rd step, lolol. It took like 7 obviously steps before refs noticed it and it was cause of other's reactions.

These refs have never actually played BBALL, most of em'. In bball, it would help a lot of the ref actually played bball cause bball is such a tough game to referee.

From what I saw the CLE v BOS game was pretty interesting. I especially loved Rose guarding Irving and going at Irving on the other end. Also D Wade's block in the last few minutes and then his oop to Bron. How many times have we seen that.

Also, does anyone know what was with Horford? He was getting might worked up there and I think got a tech foul for his troubles.

That was hard to watch. Paul George had a similar thing happen a few years ago and he's alright now. But yeah, Hayward's gone for the season most likely. Sucks for the Eastern conference battle between C's and Cavs.

Boston is going to run out of gas midseason without Hayward imo, just puts so much more pressure on tatum, brown and co when he's out. Marcus smart looks so tough this year, might be most improved player of the year.

But boston is still going to be tough, they still have morris that can fill in for hayward, who's prob done for the season tbh.....

Cavs are going to be tough but though people say lebron is still in his prime, i disagree. His skills/experience is at his prime, but his lateral speed is really not there like before.... his explosiveness is still there as well obv..... but lateral speed is so important on defense..... u can't always expect to make up for it with chase down blocks.....

Lebron definitely looked "older" last night, which is still nuts considering how good he played. But, that could be related to his ankle .. he could have been extra cautious. We'll see like 10 games in, but last night had me finally seeing some "aging". I personally hope it's just the ankle.

I'm watching the game right now, didn't have time to watch last night......

I felt he was slower laterally all last year, such as staying in front of defenders while not totally set, but i mean this guy could literally play in the NBA until he's 55 yrs old lol.... Even when he's 40, he'll be able to do a lot, just cause of his skill/size

full highlights.. some other nasty highlights in there. man he is going nuts.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgSoraIKn-g

To me, this was just as impressive as a 50 pt game. Very efficient against a very long and tough Milwaukee team on nat'l tv @ milwuakee.....

completely agree.. "efficient" is beautiful. I think that's why I love watching Steph, he's unselfish and extremely efficient. Kyrie is doing that in BOS right now with these performances.

Contrast that to some of Kobe or Iverson's 50+ games, where they just take every shot going nuts .. still incredible, but I really do love the more effortless 25-30's with the rest of the stat line filled out. WB is a monster but lots of times it looks like he's "forcing it".

Steph and Kyrie have alot of similar qualities to me.. Steph with the range/J advantage, Kyrie with the penetration advantage. Both guys have incredible ball handling & passing, though very different styles.

He continues to dominate inside the paint, where he’s averaging 23.7 points per game on 75 percent shooting. By comparison, when Shaquille O’Neal won the MVP award in 1999-00 while leading the league in scoring, he averaged 22.5 points in the paint per game on 61 percent shooting in that area.

Giannis is Shaq now. He’s a seven-foot-tall point guard who is Shaq.

sux to see lebron lose a step like this. He's also deliberately pacing himself, turning into an old fat charles barkley.

Didn't he go all low carb and drop weight a cpl years back?

Maybe he's just carrying an injury we don't know about. Given his usual preparation I'd be surprised he's not in as good a shape as possible. Cavs look weird though. Not impressed at all.

lol yeah was going to post that, saw it live and had to rewind it to see wtf he actually did after splitting the d to get the smooth banker in...... but to be technical, he did travel, but he made it so smooth that it was just hard to see .... lol

But man he was in Video Game STREET MODE that game, actually he's been in video game street mode the last 9 games.... he's literally able to pull off any combo of moves that EXIST in BBALL equally as well..... we're talking about LR right hand layups, RL left hand ups, LR left, etc etc LR R floaters..... euro steps..... fake cross overs than take off....even fake in and out dribbles  than taking off with right leg, right hand lay up.... fake between the leg passes.... switch hand layups.... can name more ..... every combo of floaters, every type of fadeaway.... its un real....

oh only thing he doesn't do is the skyhook rofl......

kyrie has pretty much every gear.. in most of the highlights, he just looks so smooth, but when needed, he can turn it up a notch and just go ballistic. his penetration ability is serious.

and man those passes in the spurs game, some are just beautiful.

and he's not that explosive tbh, hence he doesn't try to do a westbrook thrown down much though i'm sure he can.....

like u said he has that extra gear tho without compromising his touch/accuracy.... some people just get out of control ie lay ups that only hit the backboard .....

and his passing and court awareness gets underrated, it's cause he doesn't need to get 10 assist a game when he can just play off the ball half the time.... players like cp3 which i respect, they're value are overrated cause they demand the ball so much, cp3 virtually has no value off the ball, he's really not a catch n shoot player either.....

i was mind boggled....shows how clueless nba analysts can be

boston on a 10 game winning streak, best rec in nba.... but i dont think taht will continue with al horford and tatum out now..... there going to meet gsw and at game 16...

watching MIL/SA right now.

Also sux about Kyrie. Didn't seem broken though, would be way more blood generally. Not sure what the prognosis is yet. Hopefully he doesn't have to start wearing a mask, then get addicted to wearing it like Rip Hamilton.

ya that's not alot .. nose break is usually gushing, way more blood - at least the ones i've seen in person and on tv (boxing/mma/other sports etc).

ok good, no celtics show if kyrie is out.....

When everyone is healthy, they could do some damage, might get better record than GSW in regular season.... but i think playoff time they might not be as good as regular season.... teams will be focusing 100% on them......

right now they have horford, kyrie, tatum, obv hayward, that has injury......

these guys are like the golden state of the east it seems like.....

seems like the nba is doing a lot better this year with calling it as fairly as possible..... i've watched a lot of games and i really don't see any super star treatment, kyrie is prob the only guy that got a lil bit of superstar treatment because his play was so dazzling had the officials in a bet of awe......

a lot of underrated players this year: evan fournier, aaron gordon (if he can keep itup), dennis shroder....

It really sickens me how overrated lonzo ball is, his road to the NBA was literally paved in gold.....

he was overrated in high school because the system was designed for him to succeed.....

he was overrated in college because he played for UCLA his home team and again the system was designed for him to do well (ie hang around top of the key make passes, etc, like it's pickup ball)

Now the Lakers system again is designed for him to succeed (a 6'6 pg getting a starting spot on a young athletic team)

BUT guess what? The nba isn't that easy, 82 game season, everyone watching, you get EXPOSED, good teams will destroy bad teams and make headlines.....

Like half the rookies this year are better than lonzo ball: tatum, fox, smith jr, kuzma, markkanen, collins, monk, bogdan, josh jackson all >>>> lonzo.....

Cause if you're shooting 30% from the field, I don't care if you're averaging 25 assists a game, you're a LIABILITY. Someone else could pass the ball instead of you, they don't need you.

This guy is seriously being exposed, and anyone that thinks his "assists" or triple double even matters..... think again.

good to see wade get something going, he's in good shape this year, if he lags a bit it's his mind not his body imo....

russ looks stronger this year will go a long way in the 82 game season, dunking it like he's on a fisher price hoop.....

He was impressive, and it wasn't just the #'s, it was his ability to maneuver the lane like a wing and also do his duties as a center.....

lonzo balls stats were im guessing: 2 pts, 1-10, 3 to, etc..... just insane how much hype with this guy

actually steph is slowly becoming a russell with finesse, he seem to have gotten faster/strong than before

westbrook is vegan?

not sure what vegan has to do with it? most olympic athletes aren't vegan, for example. so it's not like some guaranteed performance booster. if it was, every athlete would be vegan.. when something gives athletes an edge, they flock to it.

John Brenkus and the Sport Science team examine how Kyrie Irving's first-step acceleration off the dribble is unlike anyone's in the league.

heh no, many players faster and quicker than kyrie, with much faster 1st steps lol ESPN is comical

what separates kyrie are his moves and his touch....

To be fair to Lonzo, he could have some sport psychology issues going on at the moment, I mean he could be destroying it in practice for all we know, lighting it up .. Luke might know more than we do. But ya, seems like he should be coming off the bench.

This is turning out to be a good teaching moment.. As a family member, don't add extra pressure to your kids to perform, especially at the highest level.. Might work in AAU, H.S., and even college somewhat.. but pro? Opponents going to be looking, with a little extra, to crush your soul.

His shot mechanics are garbage. Everyone who said "yea but it goes in" has never played. His shot path negates his ability to pull up going right because he brings the ball up on the left so radically. His only offensive presence is to drive right, drive left and step back going left. Almost any NBA level guard should be able to force him right given his lacl of athleticism and quickness off the bounce which leaves only 1 option. That combined with his defensive issues is why i touted him as highly overrated.

Of course I called Fultz ovverrated too but the 6ers are screwing him so badly I'll withholf judgement for now. Dennis, Tatum, Jackson, Monk and Mitchell were the top prospects to me in the draft last year. Lauri Markahowever its spelled is showing flashes of a bright future quickly btw.

They had a few injuries to start also, i recall whiteside missed a few games? He's a huge piece obviously, but I think he could miss some games now and they would battle better at this point. Regardless, they just weren't clicking right from the getgo, and there were "effort concerns". But now they really look to be on point. I think they know for sure, that they are a top team in the East now. They are so versatile & athletic, get contribution from so many different people on the team. Any night, someone "else" can go off. Watched them yesterday versus Chicago, keep getting more impressed.

HEAT !!

i wonder if heat going to run out of gas the way they are winning lately....

its not easy to beat raptors @ canada and pacers @ indy...... they beat celts ..... i mean dam

they are like 20-4 the last 25 games..... usually when teams do this and they're not golden state.... they hit a wall sometime.....

all it takes is for u to go up against a hungry team and be out of it to go on losing streaks in this league...... that is if ur not GSW.... gsw on another level, they have the power of the RING ....

man i wish i can see some closed practices of GSW.... they must really go at it and work at it in practice.... i can see Kerr just going nuts over certain things..... kerr has that MJ aggression in him, it happens when ur with MJ for so long....

gsw is just faster and more accurate than the entire league period.... steph klay can release shot in like mili secs and kd shoots over anyone with accuracy....

give gsw the ring now, its over.... like seriously..... they're just going to win the ring again unless refs make sure they dno't and than that would just be too obvious on nat'l tv

i dno. i think the beauty of Miami is that there aren't any "true superstars", other than Whiteside but, he's more of a rebounding/blocking/big presence superstar, his offense is decent but he isn't there #1 goto. There's no real #1 goto player anymore. On any given night, anyone can go off. This doesn't happen too often in the NBA.

as far as coach Spo goes, these last two years are probably his most impressive. All of the titles he has with the heat, came with multiple mega-star players: Shaq/Wade, Lebron/Wade/Bosh. It took him a while last year to figure this group out and get them clicking. It took a short while this year. But man once he gets them all clicking, 12 deep, they became a real threat. Literally anyone on that team can step up and their defense is rugged.

so ya not sure if they will fizzle or not.. last year they kept it up from all-star break until the end. This year I really think they will keep it up into the playoffs.

I just don't think i've seen a team with this many injuries, respond so well .. EVER. Except maybe the New England Patriots in Football: reason - their Coach. Seems like the same reason here.

I'm a heat fan so, but even if I wasn't, i'd be just as impressed with the heat's last 2 seasons and Spo's coaching.

I think they'll be even more on point in the playoffs. Lots of analysts now saying the Heat could be the real darkhorse in the playoffs this year, ruining alot of party's. We'll see somewhat soon enough.. :D



man i wish i can see some closed practices of GSW.... they must really go at it and work at it in practice.... i can see Kerr just going nuts over certain things..... kerr has that MJ aggression in him, it happens when ur with MJ for so long....

lol pretty much. Kerr will be a GOAT-level coach when it's all over. He might end up the "Jordan of NBA Coaching", eclipsing Phil etc. I like his style and offense alot better than Phil as well. Plus Phil had MJ and Kobe/Shaq. KD changes everything for GSW, that's like Kobe/Shaq level now for GSW, except KD and everyone on GSW seems to get along great. HEH. That's important. Those dudes love playing with each other, sharing the ball, lighting it up as a team, and defending hard.

Always loved Kerr. Just hope his damn back gets fixed :/

wow at how Lebron/Cavs are turning out.. Lebron is playing awful, so much turmoil, losing by huge numbers, everyone looks depressed/discouraged.. seeing Lebron with his face in his towel last night, they have really fallen apart.

unreal.

From everything I know, alot of this falls on Lebron directly. It's like he forgot how to lose, and then how to gather his troops during these losses. Instead, he's demoralizing his troops.. Looking back, I guess Kyrie leaving was a bigger moment than I first realized. When did playing with Lebron become toxic? Last year? Or was it sooner? I'm hoping he turns it around.

Looking back, I guess Kyrie leaving was a bigger moment than I first realized. When did playing with Lebron become toxic? Last year? Or was it sooner? I'm hoping he turns it around.

The issue I see with Lebron's game is that he is way too ball dominant. He always plays the point position, not saying he can't or it's not good, but ALWAYS playing that role isnt the best use for his game. He has height and athleticism, he can jump over people and takes off 1 leg like he's on a trampoline. U know how many backdoor alleyoop pick n role lob opportunities a true pg can create for him?

The reason he is able to keep up the #s he is doing is because he is playing a stand at top of the key type game. That helps his #s, but is not the best way to play for a team to WIN.

If he were to play like he did at the time of his prime (I'd say taht is 2004-2013) he's run out of gas. But he is much better of use for a team if he didn't always play the point.

He's not a great closer, thats for sure. Cause he's not nimble enough to slide thru the defenses in game ending situations and refs don't call as many fouls at that time, so defense will just bump him if he drives..... obv they're not giving him the shot..... thats why they used to go to kyrie when game is on the line, like every time.....

IT like i predicted is overrated. His 29ppg season he was extremely on point but even that season he looked better than he was because he was the breath of fresh air in the league so refs called a foul every time he missed a shot in the lane....

this year he is no good, he really isn't at nba caliber this year..... his legs are not strong at all.... at 5'9 with no explosiveness..... u shouldn't be playing bball....



Also--- I mean I'd ask lebron this "How would YOU feel if someone always made u stand on the side while he drove and dished to you and all u can do is spot up and shoot"?

that's what he does, he makes everyone stand on the side and he tries to distribute or score..... it's like pickup basketball and he's that one ball hog in the game.....

Houston actually does the same thing, but James harden is much more affective at that than lebron, james is what 27? right now at his prime? james a much nifty scorer than lebron is right now, and houston's role players are much more active than cavs role players.... and houston has cp3 that can shoot lights out as a pg.....
Title: Re: NBA 2017 - 2018 Season
Post by: fast does lie on February 04, 2018, 04:30:05 pm
lol @ james harden dropping 50, 60 like it's normal....

and when he doesn't shoot much, they win by even more cause the role players are so active..... talk about some good role players....

it's golden state and houston..... every other team is so far behind.....

actually toronto is really good this year..... i wouldn't be surprised to see Toronto vs GSW in the finals.....

man wade still has a smooth game, but it seems like he's not trying out there when he plays at this age.

this new team definitely fits better to lebron's overly dominant ball hogging type of game..... he never slashes anymore, just stands there when he doesn't have the ball in his hands.... obv hes trying to save up energy to make his stats good which is okay but there will be a day when his style of play and personality isn't the best way for a team to win.....

randy moss is one of my favorite athletes to watch, ever, in any sport. GOAT. and him saying this was a living argument for my hobby horse that criticizing super-elite athletes for not working harder is ludicrous. maybe he needed to smoke all that weed and take plays off to be the best or at worst second-best person to do his particular job in the history of that job, and if he'd worked harder or stayed clean he'd have burned out or got hurt or whatever.

can't see lebron being anything but the primary person with the ball. problem is in todays' game that kind of basketball just won't get u to the top....

i'm afraid it's all going to be downhill for lebron from now.... he truly was a beast pre miami heat days, the last few years with cleveland....

lebron is HORRIBLe off the ball, he used to make some really nice explosive cuts, now he doesn't ahve the energy to move a lot off the ball.... other players can't get into a rhythm....

his teammates are humans, bball is supposed to be fun, i would really be down if all i do is stand in the side and watch lebron do his thing late in a game, and than fight my ass off on defense than repeat.....

I hope Wade can show some brilliance in playoffs. I remember seeing him drinking out of blender bottle late in a game like 3 years ago, i doubt that was gatorade..... perhaps it was a nitric oxide boost with caffeine.....

i think they still go to wade when game is on the line.....

i dont see anyone else closing the game esp waiters is out..... josh richardson is tough but hes still not a closer.... ya miami definitely can run with boston in playoffs, i dont like kyrie's strength and conditioning tbh....

just watched MIA scrap back against ATL to get the W and put themselves in the playoffs!!!

yezzir.

hope we get the celts first round. need to keep winning. don't want the raps first round. :D MIA is 2-1 vs BOS this year, and 1-1 for TOR (we play them the very last game of the season).

whatever. bring it. MIA MIA MIA.

Ellington needed 4 threes in the 4th to get the Heat 3 point record.. he hit 4 threes in the last 6 minutes.

He's the new 3 pt record holder for the heat. Incredible performance.

Also, this game is non-stop back and forth .. TOR/MIA feeling like a playoff game. :ninja: :ibjumping:

hah. ya TOR can be a let down post-season but maybe not this year. They seem to have really come together. I think this is the year they win the East, then lose to the West in the finals.

^ he's not winning that much this year, plus no one likes playing with lebron. who likes it when he bosses u around non stop. make one step he doesn't like and prepare to be yelled at....

is that how basketball should be?



they would be such sick team if they share the wealth and allow everyone to get into a rhythm or be able to get opportunity to do what they are good at..... rather than lebron getting ALL the opportunities to shine.....

why can't lebron cut to the hole while jr is getting an iso..... or jeff green.... not like these guys cant do iso plays, or george hill, which they are letting him do a bit.....

sure cavs are going to be good in playoffs, cause its playoffs, ppl will try their hardest on defense even if it means allowing lebron to bitch slap em around....

still, lebron needs to come down to earth man.... be more humble imo.... they'll never top gsw or houston this way....

Olynyk is no joke. He really causes problems with his dribbling + shooting ability @ his size. The game changed considerably once he got in.

Also Wade came right in and is tearing it up.

HEAT.

Both teams have some serious quick release shooters.

Lebron putting up crazy numbers.

For the first time ever I can almost agree with this statement. I was thinking I'd much rather Lebron just lose and the whole circus that goes along with him will go away as well. Having said all that I'm glad they won and I hope that he can get help from anyone (Love I'm looking at you) to get their numbers up. I just keep waiting for them to catch fire.

Damn i was the same, big Lebron fan (like everyone else here) but i wanted indiana to win. They just dotn have the bball iq tho, too much iso nonsense. Hey lebron is sitting down the start of the 4th, let them go on a 7 point run. No coaching, no structure, just dumb basketball. Really really wanted lebron to have a break for the rest of the post season :(

cavs' offense brought to mind the famous "clogged-toilet" offense of the randy wittman-era wizards, except lebron is an order of magnitude more transcendent a player/plunger than john wall.

i did not have a dog in the fight between cavs and pacers but it'll be nice to get to watch lebron keep playing. he's the GOAT.
Title: Re: NBA 2017 - 2018 Season
Post by: adarqui on May 01, 2018, 06:22:26 pm
Ya Lebron has just been bugging me lately. Always saw him as someone who could make his teammates better. But the last few seasons he's just been slowly showing me a different side. More of a selfish, disloyal, disrespectful side. It's going to be hard for me to stop being a Lebron fan, but he just seems much more selfish the last few years. I think you see it in the reactions from his teammates: Kyrie, Love, Isaiah, even D-Wade. I heard D-Wade was having problems there.

One of the gifts of MJ (Magic and Michael), was their ability to make *anyone* better. Michael was more like Lebron, he could be lethal to his teammates, but I don't think he ever lost their respect. I mean the rumor is, MJ punched Kerr at practice, stuff like that.. But when it came down to it, season after season, he always found a way to keep his team strong & focused.

Lebron seemed to have those qualities to me .. but as he's getting older, it seems he's losing that a bit. Seems like he just expects it to be easier than it should be, and since it isn't, he is not able to cope/handle it like he used too when he was younger and extremely driven.

On the flipside, D-Wade comes back to Miami and gets everyone united, focused, strong, ready for battle.

Alot of people hate Lebron for various reasons, but regardless, I think he's had a slow attitude shift for the last 2 years now. Maybe GSW rattled him. I think he knows GSW will be hard to beat in the finals, and he just can't handle it.

After all that, i'm on the fence whether or not I want to see him beat Toronto.. I def wanted Indiana to beat the Cavs, but not so sure about Toronto.. Lebron is such a monster. I think maybe i'll be rooting for him still, but i'll be rooting for TOR to take the series. Just not sure how Lebron can carry CLE for another 7 games like that.

that should be 3 FT's for Lebron... ridiculous. I mean I don't like what he did, but it was a deliberate foul that Lebron smoked out & got into shooting form at half court. solid move by him.

disagree that lebron doesn't make his teammates better anymore. he's surrounded by scrubs who are winning playoff games over rosters that are more talented top to bottom because he drags them up.

yes, he's petty and ridiculous on social media, and he's a bad shadow GM. but on the court he's the GOAT and part of being the GOAT is willing mediocre rosters to success, which he did in his early years in cleveland and is doing again now. without lebron there is no question that cleveland is a bottom-dwelling lottery team.

Disagree completely. What happened tonight is what happens when you move the ball and cut off ball. You get great looks for role players and they find a rhythm. When you spend most of the game watching Bron go iso and kick off a drive you can go cold. Especially as a shooter/role player. Tonight they were hitting the same shots they missed at Indy simply because they were more engaged. It showed on D as well. Additionally look at the time Bron spent on the bench? Those "scrubs" made a run.

Nailed it. Id hate to be a role player for lebron. Yea you get crazy open shots but not in rhythm.  Btw carmello doesnt get this excuse, he had a high number of touches and still sucked. Catch and shoot is easy when you're in rhythm and warm (neurally) with regular touches (just rotating the ball etc) but if you get the ball very rarely and you're instantly expected to just nail a jumpshot cold, you dont really have the same rhythm/confidence and its a lot of pressure and you can miss the same shots you'd have made easily

ya man that is crazy. I yelled loud as F when I saw it happen. just crazy.

i love how confident this kid is. he's really locked in. He also did a pass to Ingles for 3, and started walking away with his back turned to the game, Ingles sunk it. Just seems like he has some next level confidence.

Lebron has the most ridiculous fade away I've every seen. He also looks like he still has another gear to two to go up.

Definitely looking forward to the next series with BOS/CLE and HOU/GSW. I still see CLE/GSW making it though.

I feel for TOR too. Lowry's face after game 3 said it all. I feel for Utah as well. If they had Rubio I honestly think they'd tied 2-2.

Quote
Shehryar
So here's my updated take on GOAT: no one has ever played the game better than MJ did from '89 - '93. But Lebron is playing better at 33 than MJ did (yes, who knows what would have happened had MJ not retired the first time)

Me
Wow fazli. I know how much it costs you to admit that.

Shehryar
it does. it does
😠

Shehryar
just to be clear: than MJ did at 33

Me
The first step is the hardest one to take.
😅

Andrew
The next step is admitting that, as a team, you would prefer having Lebron's career over MJ's.

Shehryar
First of all, as friends I expect you to be more sensitive in this very difficult moment
Secondly, Dane: I bet you 100 rupees I'll never admit that

Me
hahaha
i saw this just as a colleague was walking into my office and burst out laughing
he was very confused

Difficult moment? Did Lebron just rip the heart out of your team? No. That's coming next round.

As soon as the the guard, not sure what his name is, took that 3pt attempt and clanged it, i was like damn, there goes that run. They were getting inside looks well but were so cold from outside. Not sure why that guard ruined the flow when they just had to keep feeding AD inside. That's annoying.

Not the best play from Simmons IMHO .. just chucks it up. i'd rather see him hit JJ on the run or something like that. Also, someone should have inbounded it instead, give Simmons a chance to get it at the end.

I think this series showed the glaring weaknesses in the sixers construction. you cant win a playoff series without long athletic wings in today's NBA. Was still a good series though. Next season they'll improve. Bring on celtics cavs, im going for celtics. lol.

it's so weird because mr. seven seconds or less himself is their coach. go figure.

I know Cavs role players take a lot of shit but honestly I sympathize with them. Just the makeup of the team isn't ideal to inspire anyone to step up, all the credit and direction is Lebron inspired. No one seems to have any creative license to play their game. If they do well, they finally did their part and when they don't do well it's just another case of Lebron having to carry the load and be the hero. Dead serious, I would hate to play on a team like that and would rather go on a long vacation than sacrifice everything for Lebron to take all the credit anyway then lose in max 5 to GS right after.

I'd much rather see the Celtics and their team inspired play. I think Celtics v GS could be fun. If not for any reason but to see what Brad Stevens can draw up. Also, Tatum is going to be a superstar. But honestly GS too good and efficient for anyone to play. I'm still mad at Durant for killing competition like he did.
Title: Re: NBA 2017 - 2018 Season
Post by: maxent on May 16, 2018, 10:58:59 am
Watching Lebron go 1v5 against warriors wont be that fun (to me). It will be just frustrating to see the GoaT wasted on a platform and team like that.  Unless he scores like 70 points I really don't think i'd even bother looking at the highlights. He'd have to score at least 70 imho.

Celtics prob get owned but you know they'll have their moments where they're competing as a team. I might just boycott the western conference games cos KD destroyed the  playoffs. I was rewatching the Okc-Warriors playoff game and man those were fun. Did i tell you guys I watched the game live where KD drop 40 against warriors in his last good game before he left OKC?  The guy was/is amazing, now he's just playing on easy mode and no one cares. Russell Westbrook shud have been traded instead of Harden. I hate the NBA as a staff, league and crew. Maybe Curry will get bored and go to another team and get a 3 peat there. Maybe KD will do that and give his reputation a fresh start. But no Warriors will jsut keep winning for years and years, how exciting.

To undoubtable's point about Cav's role players, i dont really have much sympathy for them. They knew from the moment they signed the sheet that they're gna be role players and what was expected of them.  They shud practice catch and shoot and screening and cutting as per a lebron offence. All of those things which every good basketball player needs to do regardless of Lebron being on the team or not. In fact Lebron makes it easier cos you're going to get mo open shots than if they were on another team. If they can't catch a ball and shoot it clean without letting the moment overwhelm them then something is missing in their preparation. 100% it's mental though. Something tells me if Jalen or Tatum were turned into role players they'd just be fine because they're not covered by the moment, they just remain calm and play within themselves.

I'm probably wrong but it's fun to talk about basketball

well he's less of a Kobe and more of a Magic.. but, he needs to go full Mamba in order to pull this series out, with support from his squad on D and knocking down shots when he kicks it out.

but ya, needs to be way more aggressive & also not cramp/die.

True he's a more of a enabler of offence than an iso guy but for his legacy it's better to have some crazy outlier playoff games in a losing effort. I think the claim against lebron is that he'd rather give up than go off in a losing situation. Maybe?

well, from his standpoint, it might make sense to shut it down in an away game. If he was on fire that game, and his team just can't do sh*t, and BOS is pulling away, maybe "giving up" would be a smart decision, knowing he can't give up at all @ home. Not saying he did any of that, or actually gave up (because he was still playing good in the 4th, his team gave up on defense), but if he did regulate his performance a bit like that because he "knows himself" and knows that he needs to dig deep af in CLE, it could make some sense. I could definitely see LEBRON doing something like that, given past performances of becoming drained/destroyed late in the finals/playoffs, and taking regular season games off etc. His only chance left this year, is to win these next two games in CLE, get his team firing on all cylinders, & rattle BOS enough that he can steal one in Boston.

But ya, I think LEBRON is someone who understands pacing himself. Go off for 70 in an away game @ BOS in game 2, be drained for game 3 in CLE ... Maybe he's just smarter than most ISO guys? lool.

Those are some very good points. You definitely have to give it to him that he's pushed himself to the absolute limit after coming back to Cleveland and understands his body like few athletes do. I hope KD is motivated to do the same at some point.

If lebron is going to get the glory when they win, he needs to be exposed when they lose. very simple. he designed this system where everything revolves around him, where they don't have a makeup like a GSw or celtics team where everyone gets super fired up and plays next level bball....

can't remember the last time lebron actually ran the floor on a miss.... u look at gsw or celtics, and u see some break out plays.... cavs just all half court pick up game style bball.... dont put much pressure on the defense..... defense can just rest lol....

Everyone expecting Lebron to come out crazy aggressive .. comes out passing aggressive, setting up his teammates who knocked down some big shots. Then he starts knocking down big shots. CLE looks good tonight so far. BOS can't hit anything.

If CLE can win 2 at home in dominant fashion (knocking down 3's/big shots), this really could set them up for a big steal in BOS.

Yeah I just don't know how the finals is going to play out. Whoever GSW face is going to get blown off the court which isn't a good thing. I can only hope that Lebron ends up at Philly next year and they keep most of that unit together. That's the only option I see to challenge GSW.

A step back J off of his right foot, man that is not easy. That's a near impossible shot for most people (step back J on the "off foot").

destruction by Livingston. eek.

Best play of the game. I watched that at least 5 times.

But yeah, Houston are cooked.

yup. done.

imho, they look awful.

CLE looks awful too (for the most part), but .. LEBRON. CLE also doesn't have to face a juggernaut before the finals, ie GSW. HOU doesn't look anywhere near the level of GSW. I mean props to them for getting to the Western Conference Finals but they don't look like an NBA Finals team.

Yeah I just don't know how the finals is going to play out. Whoever GSW face is going to get blown off the court which isn't a good thing. I can only hope that Lebron ends up at Philly next year and they keep most of that unit together. That's the only option I see to challenge GSW. (I unintentionally just ignored BOS with who will be coming back for them too so there's always that).

a fully healthy BOS will be lethal, especially now that these young guys know how to step up.

Hope LEBRON goes back to MIA - come back bro!! Come back for 2 seasons, get to 2 NBA FINALS, then go back to CLE once again and finish with one more finals. :trollface:

tbh tho.. I could see him coming back to MIA.. not even joking. That'd be a serious squad man.. and we know he loves South Beach :D

Haha. Wishful thinking. MIA with Bron isn't beating GSW though which I imagine is his number 1 goal.

Good point. Game 5 going to be very interesting.

I hope James learns one thing from the last two games and that's to be a scorer and facilitator and not chase the rebounds. He can conserve so much energy that way.

Not overly excited about the officiating. I feel like there were a ton of just bad calls that killed momentum swings. On both sides but particularly Boston's. Specifically on Tatum. A few I just shook my head on. Still, like mentioned, if Boston hits the gimmes...

yup

though, i think game 2 might have been different had LEBRON not taken that hit. IMHO, that was a nasty hit. It seemed to really shake him & changed the rhythm of the team. He already had like 25 points in the 1st quarter or something lmao. 30+ by the 2nd? Then boom. He was "off" after that hit.

I already foresee LEBRON walking off the court in game 6, intense AF, no talking, BOS fans silent, just confident after the steal.

ya man. this is just bad coaching IMHO.

For example, Popovich teams don't do this.. I can always expect the Spurs to look like they know how to play team basketball.

CLE is very frustrating to watch. Any team who can go from "amazing" if they are hitting 3's, to "complete shit" if they aren't .. is extremely frustrating to watch, and bad for basketball in general. Unfortunately this is what the league is transformed into :/

daamn!!!!!!!!!!

major shakeups brewing on both the East & West confs. I think GSW losing would be much worse than CLE tho, GSW is STACKED. Would also show people who act like you can just form a super squad (+Durant) and get to the finals every year, that it isn't easy.

not over yet tho.

man if GSW doesn't make it and CLE does, i'd be so damn happy. COME THE FU*K ON LEBRON.

I love how HOU knows how to play defense all of a sudden (according to analysts) haha.

HOU looks sloppy, even in their wins. For their W's though, they just looked like they had more energy/tenacity. Just really amp'd up, hustling/spazzing out all over the court. Similar to BOS's W's. HOU basically took control of the tempo. I think that's rattled GSW more than anything.

I can't picture him walking off with his head down. I just envision him walking off confident after an insane performance, BOS fans dead quiet, on to his 9th straight finals.

That's all I can see.

for development, theoretically might be better.

but it's never better to lose, ever.

:D

thing is tho.. ain't no one asking them to bend the knee. Lebron may just slay them on the battlefield though, hopefully.

with GSW especially, you lose focus for a few minutes and the lead blows up by 8-10 points or so.

GSW +6 after the third .. really could be even closer. CLE just not getting back on D, so weak.

Yep. Aside from missing calls you can't just change 1 call at the end of the game. It was outside the restricted area so if you change that why not change every other missed call for the game.

I'm the same as you. Wanted CLE to win but it was a great game to watch up to that point. I just hope CLE can recover from that to make it a competitive series.

All that said JR man, WTF???

my mind is blown

how did this just happen?

NBA can be insane sometimes.... where amazing happens....

George hill is a donkey too, his 1st FT was off the back of the rim and in a good direct shot, so in his mind he's like "oh i didnt swish it, means i have to shooting it a bit lighter this time to make sure i make it" CLANK off the front rim not enough strenght lol

this is basketball 101 man.... the hoop is exactly twice the diameter of the ball... so sometimes a shot that direction hits the back of the rim and goes in is technically more accurate than a swish, for example:

Post by: adarqui on June 01, 2018, 08:52:33 am
I'm not really annoyed with JR, at all. What he did doesn't bug me one bit.

JR got an offensive rebound after that Hill missed FT, preventing GSW from calling a T/O and setting up a Durant/Curry dagger.

As soon as JR got that rebound and started dribbling it out, EVERYONE ON CLE, INCLUDING LUE, should have been calling for timeout.

They had 4+ seconds.

That's a bigger failure on CLE than it is JR IMHO. Sure he screwed up but, *everyone* around him screwed up as well.

So all of the JR talk i'm seeing, putting it all on him etc, is just nonsense IMHO.

HE GOT THE REBOUND. EVERYONE CALL TIMEOUT.

Post by: fast does lie on June 01, 2018, 11:35:02 am
I agree.... but then again no one knew if he was trying to pull back for a midrange or what....  or going to try to launch a 3.... it was just a strange sequence

lebron try to call time out with .5 sec left ....

he actually had a really good look within .3 sec of grabbing that rebound but right away kd swarmed them, considering how slow this guy reacts he prob woulda got blocked by kd anyway....

but he was prob lying saying he knew score was tied OR he is just pretty slow minded..... maybe both.... that game where he hugged jason terry middle of the game he also said he forgot about it or he doesn't remember.... again he was lying or just semi braindead....

sure, that confusion is legit. but, i think once he starts dribbling it out, if you're one of those players with solid bball IQ, just call timeout while JR is dribbling with his back turned to the basket.

Quote
lebron try to call time out with .5 sec left ....

yea, he realized it with like 1.5 left then pointed to Hill, then called timeout.

LEBRON's bball iq = legit. Everyone else was a deer in the headlights.

Quote

ya I think the likely scenario is he gets blocked by KD and it's loose/scramble, goes to OT.

but ya, being that close, go right back up with it or call timeout so you can get it to LEBRON coming out of the timeout.

Quote
but he was prob lying saying he knew score was tied OR he is just pretty slow minded..... maybe both.... that game where he hugged jason terry middle of the game he also said he forgot about it or he doesn't remember.... again he was lying or just semi braindead....

He definitely didn't know. I don't believe him for a second. That was a dribble scramble as if they were up.

Can't blame him for trying to cover up for himself right now. Hopefully he comes clean after the Finals at least :D

Stephen A Smith did a "piece" today on ESPN about how he blames JR's "off the court activities" (weed smoking) and such. IMHO that's trashy. Plenty of intelligent people smoke weed, lol. The end of that game itself, with that overturned call etc, just compounded everything, confusion everywhere. Even Thompson's ejection was confusing.. Just a wreck.

Feel bad for JR tho, solid o-rebound then stupid mistake. People will blame him but, like I commented while watching the game, so many blown defensive possessions by CLE - not getting back, leading to 3's etc. People keep giving Lue credit but, I think he's a weak coach.

yup, completely agree. I don't like dirty basketball, but nothing wrong with a hard foul to prevent an easy make or and and1. Sometimes you need to get "more rough" to rattle shooters etc. Again I think this comes back to bad coaching. Lue doesn't know how to make adjustments, Kerr does. If Kerr saw the need to do something like that, he would.

Still, to me the worst part about CLE is their transition defense. It's absolute garbage. Guys not getting back, leading to 3's/easy looks from GSW, which often knock it down. Reflects horrible on the coaching IMHO, especially when someone is complaining about being fouled on one end, not getting back on the other, causing his team to have to play 5 on 4, and someone from GSW drains a 3 etc. If I was a coach in that scenario, benched immediately, don't care who it is, even LEBRON. That'd teach you real quick to get back on D. This CLE team takes defensive possessions off, all game long. It's a disgrace. I mean it's bad when LEBRON does it, but it's even worse when it's someone like Hill/Clarkson etc who isn't carrying the team. Bad leadership from LEBRON in this regard, absolutely horrible coaching by Lue to not get it under control.

This is the hard thing about CLE. They put together two to three more possessions in that last quarter and they tie the game up while obviously playing far below GSW. It makes me think they can win at home as you know you'll get more from the supporting cast there. The killer is that the defensive behaviour is obviously so ingrained that it's unlikely they can turn it around that quickly. Especially the complaining about no calls. Lebron is by far the worst and if he's doing it everyone else will too.

Curry deserves respect but not the way ppl usually give it, 'greatest shooter ever', but like in one of the best players ever. I'd squeeze him in the top 10, he belongs in the same company as Lebron, Jordan, Shaq, etc.  I dont like his game, i dont personally enjoy dudes shooting 3 after 3, it's not very interesting basketball for me but the warriors (and rockets) have clearly solved the game of basketball and are playing on a level never seen before.  Its boring af tho.

curry shooting 3 after 3 is different from any other player ever shooting 3 after 3, though. kyle korver (or jj redick, or steve kerr, or reggie miller, or tim legler, or larry bird, or steve nash, or [insert great shooter]) could not save a bad dribble and shoot an off-balance fadeaway six feet behind the line with a hand in his face and have the whole stadium unsurprised it went in. not even ray allen. people would believe it, he could do it, but the reaction would be, "oh the audacity! the skill! what a play!" whereas curry does something like that seemingly once every other game. one of the best $50 i've ever spent is watching the warriors play the wizards a couple years ago in DC. it is riveting to watch him play.

CLE just isn't fast enough esp laterally..... they got green, thompson, that can move their feet on defense.... and thats pretty much it.... george hill getting better but still..... no way lebron can go all out on defense and still perform as well on offense...

Love either gets vertically challenged at times or laterally.... he's just too top heavy, doesn't seem like he has strength in those legs....

JR has add or something, loses focus at times.... mind goes to pluto randomly....

Yep and Yep.

I think they need to win a game to save it being a complete embarrassment. I don't see it happening though. KD carried the entire team tonight and that's the only reason it was so close. Lebron also looks done. Where are the step back j's or running floaters from the BOS series. Looks like he's spent too much time watching HOU play before this series.

"Often overlooked

With no father....no education....no training....and very few role models.....they handed this young dirt poor kid $420,000 per week, at the age of 18!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Married his high school sweetheart. Never arrested. Never used drugs. Never humiliated his wife with side girl stories. No outside babies. Like many other professional athletes

Never in the news with so much as a parking ticket. Excellent father. Heavily involved with his kid's activities. Greatest player on the PLANET.

15 years later. Same dude. Same maturity. Same chick. Same family. Reputation intact. Now earning over to $2 million per week. Has sent 1100+ kids to college fully payed for.

yup. never give up. if they give up that would be the embarrassment. get that W at home, then try to get a steal in GSW, then win again at home, then get to game 7. It's pretty simple :D but really, these sports analysts who count teams out after 1 game are really annoying. CLE's team is pretty awful, so I understand it, but fight hard and try to get back in this thing. Being down 0-3 isn't that bad if you look at it like, you can make history. so get it done LEBRON.

CLE's defense is just shit. I do blame LEBRON for some of it. I mostly blame Lue for not having the balls to get it under control & get them playing better D.

Any coach who allows players to whine about calls on one end of the court, instead of getting back, is an absolute failure IMHO. I'd bench LEBRON if he did it. That's one thing I could never tolerate. Can't believe this happens in professional basketball. Seriously it bothers me so much.

Agree 100%.

With all that being said how the fuck did Draymond get away with walking up and down the court telling the refs to fuck off and get the fuck outta here early in the game after he'd already be t'd up. Seemed like he was completely taking the piss and seeing how far he could push it.

Players get different treatment. Draymond has "numbed" the refs down. I've seen him do/say some questionable stuff elsewhere in the series, no problem. weird.

It has to REALLY suck to lose like this, for someone like LEBRON. I mean this is such an awful loss. This has to hurt. Just nothing he could do, must feel helpless in this series.

Igoudala coming back to GSW really changed things too. Curry/Durant/Klay lights out, but Igoudala made some huge plays and hit tons of key buckets.

don't like his game either. also really don't like Nance Jr.

love/korver/smith are decent but kinda surprising how bad they played in this series.

thompson plays with heart.. he's solid.

hood is decent. shows flashes, should have gotten more playing time IMHO. he attacks.

green seems decent but man he didn't show up in these finals either.

I mean who else showed up other than LEBRON? It's remarkably bad.. no one showed up.

just seems like a tossup.

Klay is most under-appreciated valuable player for sure. He hit so many key shots. Under-appreciated in the sense that, he isn't at all in the running for finals MVP.
