Milwaukee a joke.

Lose by 39 without Harden. Gave up 21 3s.

And we got people dogging Boston's effort, which was very good, and we were without Brown entire series and essentially walker and timelord for three and two games.

I can’t stand watching kyrie and kd and harden seemingly prance into a finals yuck.

It’s gotten so bad I’m rooting for Trae young and his ever so punchable face to make the finals now. He’s our only hope to avoid philly or Brooklyn being in the finals.

And Blake Griffin wtf he’s throwing down flashback dunks and a ballsacking poster on Giannis He didn’t have a dunk in like two years now he’s jamming left n right.

They are fun to watch. What a world of difference having a CP3. From non playoff to most likely finals appearance. Cp3 brings leadership, desire to win, stablity and toughness. Of course if he’s healthy. While we are stuck with Kemba and his annoying smile. No competitive bone in that guy. It’s like he’s just happy he’s playing.

They are the only team capable of beating the Nets.

Not surprising considering very few undersized guards get to play in the NBA.

I think Kemba forced Ainge to retire.

Before the season started, there was a lot of uncertainty.

Right now it's very clear signing Kemba to a max contract was a mistake.

I'm sorta down for the Nets sweeping their way to a title without Harden after everyone trashed Boston for only going 5 against a healthy Nets with half a team.

Honestly, Tatum > Giannis not even close imo.

It wasn't Giannis, it was Khrissy Middleton. 13 pts last game, started 0/7 this. Embarrassing stuff. Dress them Nets players in Cs uniforms and he scores 25 a game on .500 from the field.
Good assessment:

That’s fair but this is years of seeing Giannis not being able to run the offense like other superstars can in the playoffs. He can’t be the primary ball handler in pick and roll and has no jumper. You can’t win in the playoffs if you don’t have a bag. Blake Griffin treated him like Ben Simmons not picking him up until he got past the free throw line. It’s embarrassing.

Giannis also had 6 pts at half and every Nets starter outscored him. That ain’t gonna cut it and was mostly why they were down 20+ at half and game over.

Exactly. I always want the team that knocks us out to win it decisively.

Plus, I know it's not cool, but I like KD and Harden. Both of those guys are just so, so good.
Only down side is Kyrie.

I hope the Suns beat them. CP3 is due one. I don’t like Harden basically forcing his way out of Houston, and forming a historically great offensive team.
