And we are on to Cavs/GSW part IV.

LBJ has broken the hearts of Celtic fans again. That layup to ice the game with Morris on his back is only done by LBJ. Every other player in the league would have hit the deck.

LBJ is just nuts. I saw this today ... if you look at the top 10 performances this playoff run LBJ vs. the field here are the averages:
LBJ = 41.5 / 9.8 / 8.1
The Field = 42.2 / 7.4 / 6
... the guy is insane.

I really really really hope GSW loses, but don't really see a scenario where it happens unless Draymond Green gets himself suspended and Kevin Love decides to be Timberwolves Love and puts up 25/13/5

Great game 7's. Its amazing how much the game changes when the 3's stop falling. Houston did about as much as they could and came up short. Props to Harden et al for the fight.
Lebron is as good as it gets. No one can carry a team year after year like he has done.
I dont think he will be able to carry the Cavs thru the Warriors, too much fire power in the golden state.

I blame D'Antoni for the Rockets loss. They were killing the Warriors in the paint and for some reason stopped and started shooting 3s. Just take it to the bucket!!

GSW are soft but if you start playing their game, it is over. Only shot Cavs have is slowing the game down, beating up the Warriors inside and playing solid D. Going to be really tough.

I cant blame DAntoni, its the same system he has been preaching since back in Phoenix with Steve Nash, Amare Stoudemire, Raja Bell, the Brazillian Blur Leandro Barbosa, Boris Diaw, Sean Marion...(another team killed by Sterns regime). Its 3's and lay-ups. I thought they kept attacking, Harden and Gordon at least. Just not enough to beat the LOADED GSW w/o CP3.
How many games will the Finals go?

After last night all I know is:

* Lebron is the best player on the planet, probably ever
* JR Smith isn't
* Refs changing the outcome makes me feel like I wasted 2 hours

I wasn't in panic mode but did not expect LeBron to be THAT great. Love the style in Curry's game. The 1, 2, 3 to end the half ....classic Curry. GSW in 5.
That was a game C-town should have/ could have taken. Really it probably would have made the series better.
Dont miss the NHL, great the games are not competing against each other now. Go Knights!

Im a Dubs fan through and though but game recognize game ..LeBron is a beast !!! And I cant stand him I never could .lol. I cant believe Tristan Thompson isn't getting suspended any of the Dubs would have got a suspension out of those types of antics . I also heard read somewhere he called a coach on the dubs bench a fa**ot and possibly he will be suspended for that but maybe not until the beginning of next season . I have to give it to the officials it seems like they are letting them battle a lot more then regular season and I love it . The game today is too soft let em play !!!

As a warriors fan I actually wanted them to lose that game. Now all these people are going to bitch. Even if they lost, they probably would win in 5 or 6 games.

I hate LeBron but man is he good. I used to call him LeClank because he couldn’t shoot but obviously he puts in the work because he has become a very good shooter.

Warriors miss Iggy big time and his return at any point during these finals is questionable at best.

This is the game C-Town needs to get. If not I smell sweep.
If James continues to dazzle, score, board, dimes....should he get finals MVP? (of course curry would have to have a couple average games).

Well that sucked. Cavs get destroyed. LBJ played the last three games with a "broken hand". Thanks JR.

I hope he stays in Cleveland and they can some how put some guys around him but I doubt it. Would love to see him with the Spurs to see what he and Pop can do together.

Could easily blame JR for the "fistbump" I think James blamed it on the refs blocking call... now it makes sense that he trailed off after that first game, could still make a case for finals mvp. When they announced Durant as MVP I was surprised, expected Curry.
You may hope he stays in Cleveland and there are folks in hell hoping for ice water
This just in, James kid just committed to a SoCal high school. That doesn't mean he is heading to LA but it is a contributing factor. Seriously these guys can "live" anywhere and play elsewhere.
Can Houston pay him? Phily is still an option. Can the Spurs afford him? W/ Kawhi? or W/O?
Warriors sure look like a Dynasty.

PG13 and Lebron have opted out. The Lakers have more cap space, about $60M, than any other NBA team. I know NOTHING is for sure, but for sure something is going to happen. Kawai still want out of San Antonio and talks are on with Lakers, Celts, Clips... I would give up all my guys (Ingram, Kuzma, Lonzo, Randle...) to get Kawai, LeBron and Paul George. Luck to all.

^^^ I’d guess at least 2 of those 3 end up in LA.

lake show...

Well Well its about time the Lakers returned to relevance. And yeah, Lake Show is back. After 5 years of not landing even a C level star we get the King.
I was panicking when PG13 released his intent to re-sign in OKC at 9:01pm. Apparently, the writing was already on the wall that Lakers 1st choice (after LeBron) was to extricate Kawai from the Spurs. I still think this is the masterplan. It may take a while. As the season progresses San Antonio loses bargaining power and Lakers give up less. They also did several 1 year signings (KCP, Lance Steph, and JaVale McGee) so as to keep the $$ for Kawai. I am psyched for the season to start and this time it is not to see how our new lottery draft pick looks. How long til the rumors Kobe will come back to play with LeBron start?

Surprised AND impressed with that move. Boogie wants a ring.

As bad as the Cousins signing is, guy has a ruptured achilles. 270 lbs on that, I’m interested to hear the Pelicans offer. If someone wasn’t offering all star money, why not chase?

Then again...Favors got 18M?
Old     (95sn)      Join Date: Sep 2005       07-05-2018, 1:56 PM Reply   
Heck, Julius Randle got $18 M over 2 years from the pelicans. They made him (Boogie) an offer right after the injury but did not make him an offer in the FA signing period.
Boogie says he is ahead of schedule on his rehab, that said, after an Achilles injury most players are never the same again. Pretty good risk/reward on Boogie.

Kawai moving out of the country, to be a Raptor and DeRozen is a Spur.
Kawai, Keep the LA dreams alive and dont go all PG13 on us next year.
Whos left? Carmelo? Anyone care or is this guy toast?

I have no interest in CA. Honestly, just due to his mentality as far as starts and shots, wouldn’t want the Jazz to sign him for the mid-level(not that it would ever/even be an option).

^^^Concur, never been a Carmelo fan. Im sure ive smack talked him in this thread years back. Utah doesn't need him, didn't they beat okc in round 1 with westbrook, PG13 AND Carmelo? He is a ball hog above Kobes level and iso play is so 2010. Is he still insisting on starting? lol.

I see your point, but can’t even speak those names in the same sentence. Kobe was a tenacious defender, nobody is coming on this Jazz team that thinks D is optional. One reason the Jazz had no interest in Jabari Parker.

I loved when Melo was on the floor against the Jazz, with their issues with points, they continued to iso on him every time down the court. Just picked until they could get Mitchell on him and bingo. Guy plays D like a bull fighter.

Yes, not to mention the “I’m a starter.” comment. I have no idea what Houston is doing if they eventually sign him. I think they’re getting worse.

I know it’s become an offensive driven league, but you have to eventually get stops. Nobody looks at how good GS is defensively, but they’re great(Curry withstanding) and it’s showing in rings.

Mitchell was a TOP STEAL in the draft, awesome pick. It was a strong draft class.
NBA guys have a lot more respect for Melo than I have ever had. They talk about his work for team USA, blah, blah blah... thats all he has won since Syracuse (Who else was on those teams?, exactly.). I think no matter where Melo goes, its about his last year.
True the Warriors play D, Durant for one has been really improving since he arrived.

Lakers. Have you seen who we have picked up? I gotta be honest, Im concerned.
Rondo, Lance Stephanson, JaVale McGee and now Michael Beasley. There a somewhat common thread with this group, they all are a little nuts. They all have their strengths but also they have all had issues on other teams.

Getting pretty excited for the NBA to start. Lakers are looking like a very fun team to watch this year. I think this might be the best defensive team LBJ has ever been on. My only concern is the lack of 3 point shooters cause with LBJ as your best 3 point option they are going to need more fire power to keep pace with the Rockets and Warriors.

Im right there with you. BTW, Did you hear??? LeBron James is a Laker!! I called it right here over a year ago. (I also said KLove would be a Laker, Paul George....lol.)
I was impressed with the way Lakeshow played V Golden State the other night, the fun is back! We go at it again with them tonight in pre season final. Hear you and concur on the 3 point shooting. I do not think the Lakers are anywhere near GS yet (no over reaction so go easy BCPMike). I really think we will be fighting for the 7/8 seed if the youngsters can step up. Ingram seems to have improved, Kuzma, Ball, Hart all need to take a step this year or lose playing time to Rondo, Lance, Beasley who ARE NBA players.

The only place I would not want to be a fan right now is MN and the mess going on with Jimmy Butler. They got to make a trade.
Utah gonna be good EJ!

^^Yup. But I'll bet the Lakers make moves this season to get LBJ some shooters. I'd be disappointed if the Lakers don't make a serious push this post season.

Well, worst the Jazz can go is 1-81! Not a pretty win, but every one counts the same in the standings. Friday is going to be a tough one.

Ive been excited for the last couple years because I wanted to see the low draft picks we got..Ingram, Ball.... But this year its real, even with the Dodgers in the playoffs the buzz is Big for the Lakers. Portland is good and so is all of the west so im not making any predictions or getting too excited until I see the new Lakeshow on the hardwood. Pre-season doesnt count. I did catch the end of Houston getting embarrassed by AD and the rest of N.O. Even Phoenix looked good knocking off Dallas in game one.
