Westbrook’s shooting has really deteriorated this year. Teams are almost daring him to shoot.

Westbrook and OKC pulled so much **** for one playoff game and then got thoroughly clowned. I have a lot of respect for how Lillard, McCollum, Aminu and the Blazers organization handled themselves over the past year since getting swept by New Orleans and through this series.

Caris is eligible for a extension this summer it will be interesting to see how the Brooklyn nets play their hand. out of the three years he's been in the league he's missed almost a full years worth of games due to injury. I'm pretty sure this was his first year as a starter but that got detailed due to injury. His arrow is clearly pointing up right now. He will be 25yrs old going into next year. In my opinion Brooklyn should try to lock him up on a good deal this summer, next year he might be an All-Star in the East.

His injuries are foot injuries so it is kind of scary to project how useful he'd be in his next contract.

Not really "around the NBA" but yikes.

So Paul George is the reason Carmelo Anthony struggled on defense all these years...

I wonder if the Lakers knew of this? Maybe why Walton wanted to get extended or leave to get another longer contract.

I believe that was the game before the achilles tear, where Kobe put up just an insane stat line on the road in a must win game.

48 minutes
14-27 FG, 18-18 FT, 47 points, 8 rebounds, 5 assists, 4 blocks, 3 steals, 1 turnover

Just insane.

He's kicking himself all the way to the bank..... which he showed last summer was where his true focus lies. If he wanted a championship he'd have left OKC. He got more money/longer term so he stayed.

Dlo with an ugly elimination game, his contract is going to be one of the more interesting ones in restricted free agency.

Refs seem to hate the warriors. I don't want to see Ballz and team get a 2nd game here, but the refs are the star of this one in the last 3 min.

What a great player Lou Williams is, and we gave him up for a bag of Doritos...
Arguably the greatest franchise ever
