Looks like 99 seasons without a finals appearance.

Westbrook is going insane right now. At one point he was like 7/23 shooting. Now he's 16/35.

Listening to talk radio this morning they brought up LeBron and Jordan. LeBron has 5 playoff buzzer beaters and Jordan has 3. All 5 of LeBron’s came while the game was tied. Jordan’s 3 came while being down. Not taking anything away from LeBron. Just making a shot while the game is tied is A LOT easier while being down.

It’s easier to make a running bank shot from 17 feet with 2 guys in your face when it’s tied than when you’re losing? Where do you come up with this stuff? Whatever fits your anti LeBron narrative I guess.

Cause when you miss a shot at the buzzer when the game is tied. The games goes to OT. When you miss the shot when you’re down... you lose.

I realize that this is already well established but Draymond Green is such a huge jackass that I can't believe his teammates aren't emabarrased to be on the same team as him.

The four rings on Cheryl Reeve’s fingers should serve as all the validation she needs. She has built a dynasty in Minnesota, the land of 10,000 letdowns.

You would be better off watching basketball then. NBA has morphed into something that is hard to call basketball. Stick with college or high school.

No KLove for game 7 tomorrow. He'll have his work cut out for him.

Golden State was losing by 17 after the first, trailing by 10 at half, and won by 29. Outscored Houston 64-25 in the second half.
Yikes.

Depends on your definition of fun. LeBron is playing out of his mind right now but if he doesn't get significant improvement from his supporting cast this is going to be a wipeout. They'll need Kevin Love back at full strength for sure. This isn't a Boston team starring a rookie, a rejuvenated Al Horford, and a bunch of young, unproven (albeit very talented) players. This is a team featuring one of the two best in the league (KD), one of the 8 best in the league (Curry), and another top 15 guy (Klay). Plus a lot of support, starting with Draymond Green.

My early thoughts, assuming KLove misses no more than one with his concussion: Warriors in 6. The 4 wins will be 10-20 point margins.

Oh I’m rooting for the Warriors, but I’m excited to see how much farther LeBron can carry the other 11 bums on his team. Warriors in 5, but LeBron will battle every minute, and make it hard for the Warriors as much as he humanly can.

Absent an end of game closer (which Kyrie was
& LeBron simply isn’t) Cleveland might win a game or two, but the Warriors are a virtual lock to win a 3rd title in 4 years.

Probably depends on who goes to shoot the 3. If it's Curry or Klay, a wide open 3 is probably a 70% chance to make.

Welcome to space and pace ball. 3’s, layups and free throws. On a side note With the degree of difficulty of 3’s that Steph shoots it’s pretty amazing he shoots the percentage he does from out there. Incredible shooter with a crazy quick release

Space and pace with 3s, unless you're a team coached by Thibs. Then it's iso boring ball with garbage long-range 2s and forced shots in traffic.

Wolves 80/1 in early odds for next year lol. Vikings are our only hope in men's pro sports and Gopher hockey is our only hope in D1 men's (other than UMD, SCSU, and Kato fml). With low expectations for the Gophers (which can be a good thing) wow will there be pressure on the Vikes.

James is definitely a Super Star. But he is also the biggest joke of a Super Star in the history of sports.

Which City is he going to run to next season? King he is not.
