I dunno, I am enjoying watching them expose the Bucks for the frauds that they are. Regular season team only. Giannis is really overrated.

That loss last night was embarrassing. They just didn't come to play at all. 40 point loss? Give up over 110 on back to back games when they claim to be the best defensive team in the league? Don't make me laugh.

I don't really hate Durant, and I think Irving is laughable, but yeah, don't have much love for Harden and Griffin. However, they are playing really well, even without Harden, and you have to respect that. Plus, they have Nash coaching them and I will always have a soft spot for him.

Jokic wins MVP. Well deserved:

Jokic is now the lowest draft pick to ever win MVP at 41. Also, probably the only MVP ever whose draft selection was preempted by a Quesarito commercial

To me this playoffs now is just about anyone winning but Clippers and Nets. So go everyone else I suppose.

Lebron’s switching back to #6 next year. Trying to regain that Miami Magic I see...

I understand the hate for super teams. But the Nets and especially the Clippers were the jokes of the NBA for decades. I won't mind if one of em wins. But I understand your side.

The clippers can eff off with their stupid owner and his press conference after the Leonard signing.

and was never a fan of Nets after they stole Vince Carter from the Raps.

So gooo Utah and the pandemic saving Frenchman!

All of a sudden, it's going to be an interesting series if the Nets don't get Harden back quickly...

You think? That was a pretty close, low scoring game and the Bucks were desperate and had Middleton shooting reasonably well, while Durant was 11 for 28. I mean the Bucks had like a 20 point first quarter lead that evaporated by the half, and the Nets didn't even have to play particularly well to pull that off.

I just view that game as an anomaly. The Nets don't need Harden to win the next two and take it in 5.

To me Utah's the only team with both likeability and a chance to win it all.

Anyone getting excited about the draft? I haven't really followed it closely in recent years because the Raptors weren't a major factor. But this year probably picking 8th or higher, the Raptors should probably get a really solid player and potentially a star, even if they don't move up. I really like Barnes, Moody, and Keon Johnson as choices for the Raptors if they don't move up. A lot of mocks have the Raptors selecting Davion Mitchell, which I personally think would be a horrible choice for them.

Put your trust in Masai. He almost always goes for the home run with a solid chance of making it, as opposed to the home run with little chance. I'm sure they've watched countless videos and have a solid understanding of who they want, so I truly trust his judgement wholeheartedly.

Man I feel bad for Jokic. He could really use Murray right now.

It's funny because after the Portland series I was trying to figure out if there was a way the Raps could make a play for Murray because Porter Jr. has been so impressive since Murray got hurt that I'm not sure you can go back to him as the #3 option there, especially since his ceiling is much higher than Murray's. But after this series I imagine they will want to take at least one run with all three of their top players.

Welp. Now Kyrie is down. Looks like the Bucks might run away with this series now.

watching Giannis go through his free throw routine is painful.

So the minute... and I mean the minute I put some coin on the Bruins, Avs, and Nets to make their respective finals, the Bruins/Avs lose 7 games in a row, Harden goes down, then Kyrie goes down. I'm not a superstitious guy, but *** **** does the universe seem to hate me...

The lesson here... literally never bet on favorites (unless it's something goofy like Floyd vs a non boxer or something).

Easy sweep for the Suns. Congrats to them. To me it seems like a good chunk of these series are gonna be decided by injuries

Weird looking 2nd round, one series is a sweep and the other 3 series are going at least 6 games with the home team winning all the games.
