    I continue to be pleased and impressed with how thoughtfully and responsibly media figures in the basketball world talk about and approach these issues. Even just the Inside the NBA guys put a lot of mainstream media to shame in covering this kind of thing.

    The NBA is the most player centric league out of all the big sports.

    This is by virtue of the fact that 2-3 guys are essentially your team. You build role players around them and results may vary but those 2-3 guys are what defines your team.

    So in a league with 30 teams, if 40 of your top 60 players are pissed the fuck off about something and the remaining 20 are largely sympathetic, then management has to stand up and listen.

    Also no helmets, smaller teams on the floor, and much greater room for individual accomplishment.

    The NBA is a relatively small league and the players tend to have longer careers so the journalists that cover them develop meaningful relationships with them. They listen to these players and they care about them unlike MSM news media that cover beltway bullshit like it's the sport.

    On the other hand, only one scheduled MLS game happened today, the players for the other teams all decided to strike.

    Precisely, a lot of the worst of each type of media are bad in pretty similar ways, too. Manufactured conflict, tunnel vision on celebrity and drama, no room left over for nuance. So many guys around the NBA approach this stuff where they're the first to admit they're not experts, it's wonderful to see it approached seriously and with integrity.

    I was reading an article on the playoffs resuming and it raised it question.

    It said the 13 teams remaining in the playoffs were all consulted. How are there 13 teams left? The answer might have hit me, did somebody get swept?

    Yeah. 16 teams ( 8 x 2 ), minus the three that got swept -- Pacers, Nets, and 76ers.

    Dame is no longer in the bubble. He left to get more tests/evaluation. So he's out for probably the rest of the blazers season. Unless Lebron/AD continue to boycott.

    I think the lakers are just giving us the gentlemanly exit out of respect for Dame. Keep it close until the last few minutes. Then win by 10 or so.

    78 to 78 at almost the end of the 4th? Did the Denver/Utah game skip a quarter?

    After following the Bucks this postseason... Giannis has *zero* polish.

    He doesn't have a post game or any kind of under-the-rim package, can't shoot at all from anywhere on the floor (including, damningly, FTs), can barely dribble, has precisely two moves (eurostep and spin). When he doesn't have the ball he does the Westbrook: just standing on the wing, completely ignored, rather than sitting in the post

    On defense he does ONE thing: help-side blocks

    I'm beginning to think he's actually overrated

    Also, Coach Bud is absolutely not the coach to take any team to the finals because he doesn't make adjustments at all - this isn't hyperbole! the dude is doing the same game plan and more-or-less same minutes distribution as he would a random game in February

    And what the absolute fuck were the bucks thinking that Eric Bledsoe is more important than Malcolm Brogdon

    Come on nuggets. Save us from the all LA conference finals!

    Seriously though. The Nuggets are aware that you can win a series in less than 7 games right?

    Close game between the nuggets and clippers in the 3rd. Nuggets just took the lead.

  • RickRudeRickRude Registered User regular
    The nuggets managed to pull it off.

    Who’s Tatum?

    Is Tatum that fuzzy grey cloud on the Cs roster where you’d think an actual NBA player would be?

  • DhalphirDhalphir don't you open that trapdoor you're a fool if you dareRegistered User regular
    i cant believe tatum is 0 for 3 on gamewinners or that anyone continues to feed him for gamewinners on a team that contains kemba walker

  • Captain InertiaCaptain Inertia Registered User regular
    Yeah don’t feed the wet spot formerly known as Jason Tatum game winning opportunities

    This is looking to be a huge hit to the reputations of ... everyone remotely involved with this. Doc is shifting into the "most overrated coach ever" conversation, Paul George is a complete mockery, both of the 6th MotY guys now have huge question marks, Pat Bev is a meme, and even Kawhi - who typically escapes all criticism - is getting some rightful shit for this one. Not least of all is the fact that the Clippers have been kicked back into the basement after nearly emerging as a serious team over the last decade.

    What a joyous game to watch, though. Murray was hitting some Jordan-esque shots and Jokic's statline for the night (16-19-13 with 2 steals and 3 blocks) is genuinely unbelievable.

    What a fantastic playoffs this has been so far.

    I will say for Montrezz that he did lose a family member while the bubble was going on and it probably had some impact.

    That’s all the leeway I’m willing to spare them.

    Onwards to Nuggets/Heat!

    Kawhi and george deserve the criticism. They were what, a combined 10 for 36 or something? In game 7. That's not playing when it counts or choking.

    George had something like 1 free throw last night and Kawhi wasn’t much better if at all. Which is shameful for the both of them.
