I still think Clips will get passed this young and inexperienced Mavs squad and that game 1 KP ejection will loom large once this one is over in 6 or 7, and Clips might still make the finals or win a chip even. But a big mistake for Kawhi to have left Toronto whose young nucleus got so much better after their championship run who might still repeat. He wouldn’t have to carry and might even load manage in the first round.

PG’s pic has always been on milk cartons come playoff time. Not the kind of player you want to have as your top player as a playoff contender. Nothing new. Only think that sucks for Clippers (no one feels sorry for them) is SGA is EXACTLY the kind of elite PG they are missing on that team moving forward to make plays for others guys. Everything they do now is pretty much ISO, that is why George is struggling with contested shots even playing against an average defensive team because he is not as good as Kawhi who can get to his spots no matter what and hit fade away turn back jumpers all day like MJ when he is not bullying his way to the paint or hitting wide open 3s because they are afraid to crowd his space for a blowby.

The kings’ ransome Clips were forced to deal because of Kawhi’s demands for George is looking horrible and will only continue to get worse every year with SGA heading to all star career and all those 1st round picks. Imagine if Kawhi leaves in 2021 and George follows? There just might be some free unprotected lottery picks in OKC’s future over the next 5-6 years. PG might turn out as the gift that keeps on giving even into his decline as an NBA player.

Damn.
I better not see any Game 6 2018 1st round performances from George at that price.


How's the group doing?


Damn that hit right in the heart. :lol:

Nope, but Kawhi will drag him there. I believe that.

He will recover mentally.

We came pretty close to a intrasquad playoff game against OKC in the 2nd round. Here's to hopefully seeing it in the WCF!!

Yes, that would be odd to have three former Clippers starting against us.. but no, we want the friggin' fLakers in all their pompous and entitled glory. I want to see the King dethroned and humbled as we march on to the Finals for our Larry O Brian trophy...

Excited? Yeah maybe just a little
The Clipper fan understands the Book of Exodus better than anyone... what it's like to struggle 40 years in the wilderness... and Genesis.. why Cain went after Abel... So fLakers, look out... we're coming.

no way i'd rather them lose early and be miserable and derided for as long as possible. the earlier they get bounced the better lol.

think about all the times people would say lob city couldn't even make it to wcf.

now put that on a lebron james led-team with AD on it. endless derision, imo.

Gallo vs. Rockets

Game 5: 1 pt
Game 7: 4 pt

Definitely not build for the playoffs.

I'd be ok with the Beards spanking the Lakers. But omg Beard and Westbrook are the most gutless MVPs in NBA history and they're both on the same team.

I despise all things Lakers but I can't say I wouldn't enjoy it if the Los Angeles LeBrons swept these creeps.

Dang. I love that guy. And Tobias was trash in the playoffs too. FO knows what they're doing, and I'm sure Doc didn't fight to keep either one either.

I love Harden.
I can’t stand Russ.

I always thought Harden had the heart and character to not be that gutless person you describe.

Incredible close out to essentially win the game last night.

Championship play.

It was. After being MIA all night I was like, who's this guy? I watched him much of the game and he just lollygagged from end to end. And only 15 shots from the MVP? He kept giving up the ball in Winning Time.

I hate the Lakers more than the Rockets and will be rooting for the Rockets. Besides I've predicted the Rockets to win. :)

I hate both and will enjoy one of them knocking each other out.

But I will enjoy LAL getting knocked out more.

I hope the Lakers win just because I cannot stand watching the Rockets play and dread the thought of having to do so in the WCF.

lakers lose to houston, AD leaves for elsewhere. no better scenario imo lol

I'm not looking past the Nuggets yet, but if we do end up facing the Rockets, we're at least better equipped to deal with their small ball gimmick than the Lakers are.
