I don't follow. What does Harden have to do with Kawhi traveling?

You said he travels more than any other player in the league. I just provided a player who gets away with more egregious travels. Is this a difficult concept?


Lebron James owns this title outright and it aint close.

So most people voted for Spurs in 5 in this threads poll.

Seems accurate with Game 3 being their loss.

No, not a difficult concept at all. Thanks.
A couple of points though:
1) Volume of traveling violations and the egregiousness of a traveling violation are not the same thing.
2) When I wrote that "I am convinced" it didn't me I was trying to convince you.


BTW, do you have a link to that "egregious" 5 pivot foot switch by Harden?
I'd love to see it. Sounds hilarious.

I got Spurs in 7.... Griz are a solid veteran team who have been together forever... don't see them as pushovers at all.

Lots of people had Spurs in 4.... that ain't happening.

I thought they'd lose Game Four. Hope they don't still. But anyway, this was a perfect storm for the Grizz. They got to play the way they wanted to, and the Spurs got in foul trouble early. They'll have to adjust.

He had it bandaged up for a week or so at the end of the season. Don't think they ever said why, just commentary joking he took a ball to the face in practice or something.

Good effort by the Grizzlies. Spurs couldn't match their intensity and apart from Leonard, never looked like scoring.

Glad there's some decent conversation here at least and not childish insults like in the official board.

Not evidence based or anything, but red and purple noses are a sign of Rosacea.

"The redness in the skin that occurs from drinking alcohol can worsen into broken capillaries and visible veins. The capillary dilation from alcohol intake can eventually dilate the capillaries so much that they burst, creating visible red and purple veins, especially around the nose and on the cheeks."

Pop may have some other sort of ailment, but alcoholism is the main contributor for purple noses in people. I doubt Pop is an alcohol abuser, so maybe just some sort of skin condition due to his pasty white skin and large facial pores.

Pop is a massive wine guy (like has his own brand massive)... that doesn't mean he is an alcoholic but it seems relevant to what you're saying.

He previously had skin cancer, on his nose.

Yeah, well definitely a real issue for him. May have ongoing complications as well.

I dont have a link, because its a Thursday night and its been a long one, but if you watch the last 2 minutes of the game from last night, there is only one moment where Harden is posting up being guarded at half court. Or if you recorded the game, skip to the last two minutes, you'll see it no doubt. He brings ball to half court, has his back to basket and starts switching pivot feet like a mofo lol
