I like the Nuggets personnel.

Jokic on AD. Millsap on Lebron. Defensive-minded players in Harris, Craig, and Grant. No one to guard Murray. MPJ vs. Kuzma are like that spiderman meme.

We will see. Hope you are right

Glancing at the box score, Clippers got their asses kicked on the boards.

Stud. And I was mocking him early in the year for being the Michelin Man. Props for putting in the work to lose some of that weight. Fat-shaming works? :P

Lebron is getting a cakewalk to the finals. Joke. The clippers failed miserably. I think we can give them a series assuming we have everyone healthy but things not looking good right now with the heat.

Only if they go absolutely cold from 3 like they have a tendency to do. Other than that, Celtics don’t match up well with either of their 2 bigs in Lebron or AD. I think Toronto matched up best. Bam would probably give AD or Lebron issues but he is literally the only viable big on the Heat so they can’t stop both Lebron/AD bullying their way to the basket either, especially Lebron

Paul George is overrated.

Really hope that’s not Tatum’s ceiling.


Paul George is very handsome and the prototype of what an athletic, well-proportioned basketball player looks like. He’s living off the defense he played in his early career (before he became Carmelo v2) and that kickass dunk against LeBron and co in like 2013 or 2014. Behold: a “top 10” guy.

Ps I know he put up great stats last year because he was on my fantasy team

I don’t see it. I expect a downer against the lakers. They likely will celebrate like they won a championship by beating the clippers. Hope i am wrong.

Really? Frankly we are the only team that can give them a series. Miami would be a cakewalk in my opinion.

Clippers might have missed their best opportunity. The west will be loaded next year and that’s with golden state being healthy again.

The rectal bleeding that is sure to come from this Clipper loss is gonna be biblical. It's like they almost had you convinced that they weren't actually the Clippers.
I am the self-appointed RealGM President of the Tacko Fall fan club. We go big or we go home!! Bold moves require BOLD PREDICTIONS baby!!! Tacko WILL pass TimeLord on the depth chart by the end of next season. You heard it here first!

I plus 1'd, but you could probably say the same about every other team rn. Lakers will only get better, Clippers will only get better, Warriors will be healthy (with a top 2 pick to add to their depth), Mavs have lots of cap room to add to Luka & Porzingis. With maneuvering, even the Heat have enough cap room to add a max guy, while keeping their core & Herro.

Even ignoring all that, if there was a year that anything was possible, this is it.

Lebron on his way to another ring.

Anyway... wonder if Doc gets fired. Losing up 3-1 is inexcusable.

Its appalling and all it does is (falsely) validate jumping ship like AD did to take the easy path
