This is precisely why I was never on the free agency bandwagon.

Speaking of chemistry.. Morris kinda killed the Clipper's chemistry after he tried to fight Milsap. :lol:


Oh easily my guy. Denver is the team I hope wins.

I hate the heat and boston just because well we are the knicks (even though they both have likable teams :lol: )

And well f*ck the lakers too even though AD is one of my guys.

Tough not to root for Denver and Malone (who basically go his start with JVG and the Knicks). Denver team is easy to root for...it just seems like they have to get down 3-1 in a series to turn it up a notch :lol:

Not sure who to root for between Heat and Boston since I like both Tatum and Bam. I usually just root for the teams that have my BAF players :lol:
**** lebron though. But Im looking forward to the AD vs Jokic matchup. We been talking about it for days and now it's finally going to happen. The trash talk here will be fun :D

For sure the homegrown teams just have the chemistry and comradery you can't duplicate. Its why even though GS had so much talent they had a step on other teams because they have been together so long.

Its a lot easier to have a set team and then even add a superstar to that mix like Toronto did last year with Kawhi even though he was a mercenary...the core was there and they pretty much just flipped Derozan for Kawhi.

But its great to see these young teams come up and develop and eventually win. Its kinda what we all hope the knicks will be at some point which is why I'm against making any big trades or FA signings that speed up the timeline. We need to be patient.

:lol: You ready for that AD vs Jokic action

This match-up feels like a war of religion :lol:

The contrast in styles is amazing to be honest, it's great to see in today's game.

AD has the length and the athleticism to seriously bother Jokic. We'll see (not saying this sarcastically) if he has the heart to do it in the WCF. AD's reputation is on the line, he has to show he can dominate that match-up. If he does, it'll be a short series.

Ultimately, LeBron will decide this series. I don't think the Nuggets have the kind of defense to stop an offensive genius like Bron.

the lakers are not losing, they're not the clippers. the clippers could have finished this in 5, they had that game, but they act entitled all season and it caught up to them. they never really put in the work. they thought they could just half-ass it and win. and faced with a game 7 they shouldn't have been in, they felt the pressure and all choked. sad.
