|May-23-16|| ||plang: Lowry and DeRozan played terrific the last two games making up for some of their past post-season failures.|
Cleveland hit their first ten shots in the 4th but give Toronto credit for holding on.
|May-23-16|| ||chancho: LeBlockhead, what a card...
DeRozan and Lowry played like bosses.
The Cavs better win game 5 or they are toast.
|May-24-16|| ||andrewjsacks: Toronto must win at Cleveland to win it. Now they will be tested to keep it up. My money says Cavs vs. OKC in the Finals.|
|May-24-16|| ||HeMateMe: I'm surprised Chancho hasn't posted the ubiquitous Michael Jordan crying face, superimposed on LeBron James?|
|May-24-16|| ||HeMateMe: on further review it WAS a kick in the balls. Even if the green foot was an accident you just can't jump up in the air like that, where your leg is going to hit someone. Should be a one gamer suspension.|
If pit bull Delly did something like that to Steph Curry, laid him out on the floor, there might be a public lynching in Oakland. He'd get a one or two game suspension and have to go into Witness Protection.
|May-24-16|| ||plang: I have less interest in tonight's game because there was no suspension (and I'm rooting for the Warriors and am a fan of Green)|
|May-24-16|| ||Calli: The latest Summer Fashion Color is Flagrant Green. Exclusively at Bloomies!|
But seriously folks, tonight is a real test for GS. The series is on the line. A great team wins it. If they don't, then the 73 wins are pretty empty.
|May-24-16|| ||plang: What happens if there is more than one great team?
OKC is clearly playing at a different level than they did during the regular season. They have already defeated one "great" team who won 67 games.
Sports can be cruel. There is only one champion. It doesn't mean that everyone else sucked.
|May-24-16|| ||tamar: Adams would make the perfect Bond villain in the remake of Thunderball.|
|May-24-16|| ||chancho: Green lighting:
|May-24-16|| ||Virgil A: Kiki Vande and Adam Silver just lost their credibility. They can not find proof of intent. Really? Flailing, incidental. Really? That's called preferential treatment. I don't mind that Green will play tonight. I think Thunder will win anyway and Warriors will win game 5 in Oakland. But the right thing to do is a suspension. Jeff Van Gundy said he expected a suspension. The only question is if it's one or two games. |
That is what they want to make of it. Fair enough. I think what really bothers me is that you can see those Warriors laughing on the sideline. And one would think in the middle of a 30 point deficit, that kick was the only thing they're laughing about.
|May-24-16|| ||Virgil A: Was he apologetic at any time after all this time? Nobody should expect that from him. Punk.|
|May-24-16|| ||chancho: Russell Westbrook and his loud outfits... sheesh.
|May-24-16|| ||perfidious: <chancho> We should simply term that Westbrook's iso-outfit; after all, who would want to be seen around someone wearing that sort of rubbish?|
|May-24-16|| ||chancho: If this article is correct, then Westbrook is destined to go to poorhouse avenue (near bankrupt and penniless streets)|
So many famous athletes who were very rich, (only to end up in the poorhouse) and the very same mistakes are repeated by today's athletes.
|May-24-16|| ||WannaBe: Interesting article/link, you can follow how the betting money changed after each game for the West/East Conference:|
|May-24-16|| ||Jim Bartle: Anybody who bet on the Raptors after game two is in a great position. I think a smart bettor would cut his losses and buy out his Raptors position at a reduced payout, probably greatly reduced, and be happy with solid winnings.|
I wouldn't let it ride on a Raptors victory, however profitable that could prove to be.
|May-24-16|| ||Calli: Happy Birthday Bob Dylan! 75 today. Unfortunately, I had the under.|
|May-24-16|| ||Bobsterman3000: Every athlete should listen to Antoine Walker's documentary on bad financial decisions (he blew $110million). It is aptly titled "Gone in an Instant":|
|May-24-16|| ||chancho: Here's a list of top 10 NBA players who blew their fortunes:|
Guess who's number 1.
|May-24-16|| ||Bobsterman3000: Yeah, but Allen Iverson benefited from that friend who "secretly invested" millions of his Pepsi endorsement money so that he can't touch it until age 50.... but then it will be gone by the time he turns 51 but it will be a fun 1 year for him.|
|May-24-16|| ||Calli: I'm sure the league office would love a Toronto-OKC final. Two teams with large national followings and big television markets as well. NOT!! |
(but I would love it)
|May-24-16|| ||chancho: OKC is mopping the floor with GS.
So much for the repeat!
The Thunder has beaten a team that won 67 games, and now they are threatening to beat a 73 games winner.
The Warriors better come back huge in the second half or...
|May-24-16|| ||WannaBe: 72-53, very good for my two 'pretend' bets... 24 more minutes.|
|May-24-16|| ||sac 4 mate: <I'm sure the league office would love a Toronto-OKC final. Two teams with large national followings and big television markets as well. NOT!!>|
Well, Toronto is the fourth or fifth largest TV market in North America, depending on how you define it. LeBron's the only real thing that makes the Cavaliers a bigger drawing card than the Raptors. I think your share of the national spotlight pretty much comes down to the amount of star power you have on your team, unless you're the Lakers, Celtics or Knicks.
