    Honestly, I think that Boban getting mad about that is stupid. Sure, Aaron Holiday stealing the ball and hitting a 3 is petty, but you just won by 33, perhaps you can afford to not get bent out of shape about some silly pointless shit at the very end.

    It's a matter of tact. If the Suns don't want the Mavs to keep running up the score on them then they should concede the game and just walk away. The last thing anyone wants is some bullshit fouls and free throws to make a bad game last even longer. Also, there's a risk, albeit a very small one, that if the player dribbling out the ball isn't paying attention then the swiper can cause an injury.

    Should Boban let it go? Probably. But can he point out it's fucking classless? Yes. I also wouldn't be surprised if Boban didn't get angry until Holiday said something back to him, because Boban has a well-earned reputation for being a very nice guy.

    Then again, with CP3 showing his team what to do in the fourth quarter of a meaningless game and desperately trying to pad his own stats, perhaps we shouldn't be surprised when the bench players follow his lead.

    Throwing out good vibes for the Pistons to get a top 2 pick. I'd love to see them get someone to pair with Cade.

    Smart had someone come within a foot of him after practice and he reflexively flopped. Unfortunately he landed on a miniature Al Horford made out of fusilli.

    Horford threw out his old man back laughing.

    Both are questionable for game two.

    Booo, though I shouldn’t be surprised. Detroit seems to get screwed in the lottery every year (other than last year).

    The Celtics are the better team. But the Heat have been carried by the sheer willpower of Jimmy Butler during these playoffs...

  • Trajan45Trajan45 Registered User regular
    They also had more rest time. Not surprising that the Celtics may have wore down in the 2nd half.

    Orlando has a ton of young talent. I feel like in 2-3 years they'll be really good.

    Orlando has a good amount of theoretical talent, but they are kind of like the Kings, in that their players always top out at the low end of their potential, likely due to a shoddy culture and development system.

    Except the occasional good one who goes to another team eventually to be a decent role player.

    The only thing I know about Orlando is Masai fleeced em for Ibaka who side by side with Gasol where awesome and fun in the raps final run

    And ibaka wasn't a draft obvs but well the magic can't seem to highlight the talent they have let's say

    This is the Dub's "Second run/Threepealike mode they are in now. Path couldn't be smoother, plus y'all need to own the Mavs again.

    They win if it's Boston. Miami, if healthy, it's gonna be a repeat of the loss against Toronto a few years back.

    The Magic have good top pick history and we all know that tiny sample sizes indicate rock solid trends:
    Shaq
    Chris Webber ->Penny Hardaway
    FINALS APPEARANCE
    Dwight Howard
    FINALS APPEARANCE

    basically go put your money on Orlando winning the East in 2025

    I feel the opposite. I feel like Boston would a tougher match-up. Let's be real here, Toronto only won because KD and Klay got hurt.

    I mean yeah, you generally lose when you can't field your full team.

    Yepp. Raptors over very injured Warriors and Warriors over incredibly injured Cavs pre-KD count, but are definitely substantially less impressive than most.

    Seems like Trevion Williams is making the best of the NBA Draft combine. Would love to see him taking in a good second round spot. I can really see his passing abilities translating to the NBA.

    Good to know that, if you're playing the Warriors, getting up off the floor is grounds for a technical.

    This is probably the worst reffed game ive seen in the playoffs this year. And ive watched most of them. Almost every call is bad in some way.

    Draymond has a longer leash with the refs than any player in the nba.

    At what point is this Dallas bench nonsense just straight up cheating?

    Did Dallas get a single stop in the 4th?

    When you conspire with the refs to foul Draymond out, the warriors only get more powerful
    Let this be a lesson to the Celtics
