Lakers and Clips are going to ease into the WCF. Lakers may drop a game, maybe Clips take a night off too but it's going to be insufferable having LA/LA. And it will renew calls to get rid of conferences and seed 1-16.

Early money was all over the Lakers, late money is all over Houston. Hate both teams

They mentioned on one of the game broadcasts the other day that coaches didn't get to have family come to the bubble. Real **** thing to do from the league.

Darn Rockets looking good here. I guess I'd be cool with them winning, would be crazy to see this strategy work.

Besides rooting for bets on MIA and Denv to win the conference I don't know what to root for as I dislike most teams. Denver would be my favorite but they just aren't going to win. Just can't see Houston winning it either. So I guess I go with rooting for LBJ to get another title, just hate its for the lakers.

Hate Bos/Tor. Don't hate MIA but they just won 2 and don't want a market like that getting another title. Hate both LA but the moves Clips did were bad, i know so was the AD drama. But Lakers have LBJ so I guess I go with them.

Houston is a weird team. I could see them making it to the Finals if they got hot, and then being trounced by whoever comes out of the East.

I admit I still don't understand how the hell the Rockets all of a sudden made player height irrelevant in basketball.

I mean just last summer we were arguing if our 4th center is enough to stop Embiid in case the other 3 foul out. Remember that? LOL

Rockets looked good. Can they do it for the whole series? Doubtful.

Happy to admit that I did not expect this from the Rockets when they committed to this iteration of their roster. Interesting.

Yea, right. I guess it's ref guided in a way? If you're in the way of the offensive player the smaller guy gets every advantage, any contact fall and it's a charge so O has to get hesitant, allowed to slap and reach. Taking the flopping world of today's nba to the extreme.
