I could've sworn Holiday hit more than 3 long balls, their Guards were lights out

Might as well go ahead and get the KD "My Next Chapter" memes into overdrive (also, Draymond is ridiculous).

This is the most I've ever liked Draymond Green.

Durant is and always will be a P.O.S. for joining that GSW team.

I like Draymond Green - since he laughed at the ridiculous anthem, and now because of this.

There's a definite buzz around this team. Props to the management for making the bold moves that they needed.
I think that change has a lot to do with coaching as well.

If you left Casey in charge we still end up with the entire 4th quarter of isolation plays for the guards.

Buzzer beater for Casey to win in his return. Leonard had the ball when it was tied with 2 seconds left and dribbled it off his foot out of bounds. I was shocked to see that.

What an awful end to that game. Leonard dribbled off his foot and then we forget to play D with 1 second left.

That was really cool to see Casey fired up after that win. He said he just wanted it to be over so he could move on, which is obviously bull****. He wanted that one bad and showed it after the buzzer. Congrats.

The Carmelo-Rockets marriage is already over. Never made much sense, and really no idea where Carmelo goes from here.

I asked this question before, but what happened to him? He was a great shooter, and how can that suddenly dry up? I don't follow his career, so I don't know where it all went down the drain, but it surprises me. Will GM James bring his friend aboard the Lakers?

538 had an article suggesting this is the most dramatic four-year decline of any NBA player: https://fivethirtyeight.com/features...rmelo-anthony/

I'm not sure if it's so much about the shooting, as much as that he always had a high-volume, low efficiency game that you put up with because he did a lot of other good things as well... generally good rebounding and assist numbers for a big wing, and acceptable defense. His game never used to be chucking 3s, the strength of his game was that he could put pressure on defenses in a lot of different ways. But he's gone from shooting 3s on about a quarter of his shots to about half of his shots, as his percentage has generally declined. Which he might think was the right thing for where the league has gone in recent years, but it's really moving him away from what made him effective once.

Off to OT. Completely robbed by the refs down the stretch. Should be over already.

This league is so ####ing corrupt it’s disgusting. The Raptors can’t even get a call with Kawhi ####ing Leonard on the floor.

Yup, beyond brutal. Celtics get about 10 cheap calls down the stretch and in OT.

And the Siakam call on his offensive rebound might have been the worst of all.

An oral history of the Chicago Bulls iconic player intros during the 90's:

https://www.theringer.com/nba/2018/1...michael-jordan

Quote:
Michael Jordan (Bulls shooting guard, 1984-1993, 1995-1998), speaking to the Chicago Tribune in 1991: I’ve never heard a word after “Carolina.” It gives me chills, every time.


The Knicks, Pacers and Rockets had pretty good ones as well, but nothing can match the original. Still get chills...

Everyone talks about the jobber refs and certainly the league is WWE light, but has anyone ever tried to statistically prove how the league, through the refs, either try and make the games more even, or have a bias toward one team? There has to be some type of study out there. If I were a university looking to make a name, I'd do a study like that as I'm sure it would garner funding from people. The league is total BS.
