Pelicans about to get a garbage return on this trade.



Amazing, if true. Why would anyone trust the Lakers or the Knicks ownership and front office over Steve Ballmer, Jerry West and Doc Rivers? The only thing not to like is the name "Clippers".

This Jurassic Park thing is so unbelievably overplayed. It's not even that many people and they cover it like there is a million man march out there every game. It's like a high school pep rally.

It's pretty clear we would have won the title if we had gotten past the Raptors. Golden opportunity slipped away.

With that said I'm happy for the Raptors and their fans. Great organization, great city, great fans, and they've been knocking on the door a long time. They deserve it.

2 early threes for Durant. Yikes. This might go 7 if he's completely healthy.

There's been a pretty significant (relatively) turnout here in Halifax. I've been both impressed and also very annoyed.

For the record, until this series started, the rest of Canada has made their hatred of Toronto well known.

Honestly, go Warriors. Cheering KD's injury was embarrassing.

Rooting for the Warriors because I don't want to dread how much of a missed opportunity this was.

Toronto fans/franchise don't deserve it any more than we (or Milwaukee fans) do.

Edit: Also, I feel horrible for KD. Love him or hate him, dude always plays his heart out and is a generational talent.

I know they're dealing with injuries, but some of these lineups by Kerr are Brett Brown-esque with a completely anemic offense.

get shooters at every position. Iggy, Dray and Cousins aren't worth guarding and it destroys their offense w/o KD.

Remember when Kawhi was obliterating the Warriors for like 10 consecutive points and complete momentum.... and Nick Nurse called a timeout?

Great game. Warriors showed a lot of heart.
