thanks. :lol: i saw it this time though.

i expect both games tonight will be the end of these series. the cavs for sure. i don't think lebron wants any extra mileage on his body if he can afford it. there's an article from a couple of days ago about how lebron has figured out how to rest during games to preserve his body. pretty fascinating to see how he plans this out.

Here's the data that illustrates it. No one would ever call James slow, but he is when he wants to be. During the regular season, James' average speed during games was 3.85 mph, according to Second Spectrum tracking data.

Of all players who averaged at least 20 minutes a game, that ranked in the bottom 10 in speed. That's correct: James moved slower than just about any rotation player in the league. And since the playoffs started, James has gotten even slower. His average has slipped to 3.69 mph.

Here's why: James walks a lot. During the regular season, about 74.4 percent of James' time on the court was spent walking. Again, this was in the top 10 in the league. Almost no one walked up and down the floor more than James. And in the playoffs, he's walking even more -- 78.7 percent of the time.

It's a data-backed way of saying James calculates when he can take plays off. Or more appropriately, when he needs to take them off.

The Knicks. You have the Fizdale connection and Mills/Perry wanting to "take a chance" on underachievers.

Until we have an Off-season thread, I'm going to address Stan Van Gundy resigning from the Pistons after ownership suggested he take on just the coaching responsibilities. Let's examine SVG's front office moves:

1.Taking Kennard over Mitchell

2. Overpaying Reggie Jackson

3. Taking Stanley Johnson over getting 4 1st rounders from Boston

4. Blake trade

5. No 2018 first rounder.

Ooooooh...that's awful.
