    I don't think that's happening again. Dre will Choke Dillion Crooks to death to kill the head of the snake "Cobra Kai" style to finish the Grizz off In San Francisco game 6.

    Nobody can mail it in like the Warriors. This reminded me of that 2017 Finals game they tanked so they could close the series at home even before the graphic on screen. When they take a night off, they take a night OFF.

    Looks like the NBA is creating more awards, including conference finals MVPs. I still don't understand why they don't just do all-playoffs first and second team, or all-playoffs west and east. This still will have the effect of ignoring incredible performances that flameout before the conference finals, and likely still have the unofficial rule of only going to the winners, which dilutes it in my opinion. I like the move, in a vacuum, but I think they could have done better.

    Harden has one shot attempt in the second half with 6:30 left in the game.

    My "Heat in 6" pick about to come true. Now let's see if Phoenix can do the same.

    So Doc has to be gone but who else? You gotta think they'd love to find a suitor for Harris' contract

    Kind of wonder when Embiid hits the eject button on that whole situation.

    No picks for anyone to take tobias.

    Sixers are mostly fucked unless a coaching change ends up being a revelation, which I mean, is possible because doc is one of the worst nba coaches around. But I wouldn’t count on it.

    I'm rarely entertained by Stephen A, but that was an entirely appropriate rant.

    Harden played himself out of a max contract unless the Lakers wanna give it to him

    Sure goes to show you that nba journalists both don’t watch the games and don’t understand the games they do watch

    And that leaves one MVP finalist left in the playoffs

    What mate?

    Even if that’s true, it would be because they hired you

  • Captain InertiaCaptain Inertia Registered User regular
    The Sixers are actually a healthy Embiid away which is a way of saying they have no shot at a championship

    If only they gambled on Butler instead of Simmons
    That team would be ridiculous

    Doc is the biggest issue that you can actually do something about pretty easily from an organizational perspective. Tobias is a good player on a bad contract, which makes him harder to move (and harder to blame).

    If only Embiid wasn't left in the last few minutes of a game where his team was up by 30 points. This is exactly why you pull your key guys once the game is won. Especially in the playoffs, when rest is even more at a premium.

    Sixers probably need to dump rivers and harden and go hard at brunson this off-season

    Question for people who know better: was Harden pouting because it wasn’t all about him all the time? Does he want to be the main character of the anime and he’s sad because he has to share the floor with somebody with as much gravity as him? Did he check out because he’s not the MVP candidate on this team?

    Nah he's honestly just not that guy anymore
    He likes partying too much and is more than happy to sit back and watch someone else do the work
    I saw more apathy than frustration or sadness

    He needs to get a max contract to throw more money at the strip club though

    Hey Danny Ainge, care to try to bamboozle Morey for trading Rudy for Joel?

    I'm not the biggest Luka fan, but watching him dismantle and demoralize Chris Paul has been /chefskiss.

    Your plan to make the Jazz better is to trade their only good perimeter defender with… a center

    Seems legit

    Gobert is a Center though

    And Embiid gives you 91% of Gobert’s D but 374% of the offense, and infinity more percent of hilarious team mate hijinx

    I dont understand, what is Grayson Allens skillset supposed to be? It seems like he sucks on every level.

    He's supposed to be a 3-and-D wing but Boston seems to love when he's on the court
