If the nets fail and only another super team beat them... Well, forget it.


The parity is great. Should be even more open next season if Lakers and Warriors are healthy.

How is it that Jae Crowder has bounced around the league so much already?

Healthy Lakers steamroll the west (unless Lebron is washed next season). Warriors are unlikely to be competitive, unless they trade their pick and Wiseman (which I would strongly consider since Curry isn't getting any younger). Klay is coming off the two worst injuries in basketball, back-to-back, late in his career. Most players come back diminished from just one of them. I'd look to trade Wiseman and their pick for KAT or Dame.

Denver is such a trash team outside of Jokic and Murray. Which makes it all the more impressive Jokic was able to get out of the first round.

Klay will still be a great shooter and will give them 20 ppg again. Issue is whether he can remain a good defender.

Warriors are in win now mode. I imagine they’ll shop their young assets around this summer and try to bring in a 4th big piece next to Steph, Klay, and Dray.

I was really hoping Denver would control the series to make them think that Murray might no longer be needed to then eventually see Masai trade the pick for Murray ...oh well

Bill Simmons mentioned his Ewing theory re: Jamal. Dude’s really slipping. I wonder if the people who have explained basketball to him are still in his life.

Nah they have a pretty good team. Lots of good roleplayers plus MPJ. Barton, Gordon Campazzo Morris Milsap are all pretty good players

The Bucks can't help themselves sometimes. They are going back to old habits this quarter so far.

They have to stay discipline to avoid the Giannis wall.

Giannis is a great athlete, a freak, competes hard, good person. I would never even say it's good we didn't get him. But man, even aside from the free throws, he has a really limited offensive game for playoff basketball.

Holiday comes out of nowhere to take the lead. Forgot he was even on the court.
