Giannis played like crap tonight. Im banking on Miami to make it out of the east.

Interesting... From that angle, that dunk never had a chance... And it also looks like it was a good thing the rim was there or Kawhi might have been giving himself the finger the rest of his life.

lakers celtics 2020 finals, with the lakers capturing their 17th to match boston's 17th..... a guy can dream
"he retired because the Knicks were the only team to offer him a contract, and that indicated to him that his time in the league was up."

Lol, yeah, Smart really saved the day with his amazing 2-10 3 point shooting performance. If you’re looking to credit a Celtic who was underrated by Lakers fans, it’s Jaylen Brown. He completely sonned Siakam in that series.

Can't help but be impressed by how well the Nuggets and Celtics have developed their young talent.

He won them a game with his shooting and in Game 7 he was everywhere defensively.

Randle makes every team he plays on horrible defensively

Random comment of the day but the Clippers should just move out of LA entirely. I don’t care where, just anywhere else. “The Bakersfield Clippers” might work.
Yeah you have 17 titles....but winning the majority of them over 40 years ago is meh.

The Lakers are winning the championship this year.

Doc is overrated and stubborn. Congrats to the Lakers fans.

I'll be shocked if the clippers win G7 with doc's incompetence

We're not claiming anything now. We are taking each game and day one at a time and enjoying the hard work and humility and camaraderie our team shows. We still see ourselves as underdogs until the end.

They should have gone to Vegas, but Ballmer didn't buy the Clippers to move them out of the LA Market. His goal is to clean up the brand by distancing it from the Lakers and not having our continued success looming over everything he does. Then, he'll market the **** out of them and the arena... And if they never win a championship, he'll still have a multibillion dollar franchise he can unload.

I just don't understand why he had to literally stay in LA County. If he had moved them to OC, fans down here would have gone nuts for them. But now, if you're going to LA for a game, it might as well be to Staples...

I’m in the OC as well, you’re right regarding the fans down here. With Baseball I’m a Dodger fan but it’s just so much easier to watch Angel games since Anaheim is right here. Despite the Honda Center being run down, at least they’d have their own arena.
