|Apr-25-15|| ||HeMateMe: 12 cheapest athletes--LeBron leaving a $10 tip for an $800 meal!|
|Apr-25-15|| ||WannaBe: Manu sure have a sense of humour.
|Apr-25-15|| ||Jim Bartle: Interview with Julius Erving. Not sure of the date.
Who are the best today?
Kobe, followed by LeBron and Wade. But my favorite is Tim Duncan. He could have been flashy, he knows how, but he knew what he needed to do to win.
He wasn't including Durant, Rose, Curry, etc. More career greats.
|Apr-25-15|| ||HeMateMe: it was Timmy during the divorce proceedings...|
|Apr-25-15|| ||Gryz: "And now back to the place that sounds like Chicago, but actually is Milwaukee". Commenter on TV, after a break.|
It looks like the first round is more fun and interesting in the East, than it is in the West.
|Apr-25-15|| ||plang: Warriors show that you don't need ping pong balls to build a winner.|
Curry, Green and Thompson were not drafted that high
|Apr-25-15|| ||WannaBe: The question tonight, is will Pelicans come back from 20+ deficit and go OT?!|
|Apr-25-15|| ||HeMateMe: 4-0 Golden state, huh? on a roll. Who will the Warriors play in the next round?|
|Apr-25-15|| ||plang: Memphis - Portland has not been playing well for over a month (partially due to injuries) - little chance of them coming back from down 0-2|
|Apr-25-15|| ||plang: Warriors "rewarded" with a full week off - probably more rest than they want|
|Apr-25-15|| ||Jim Bartle: I think other teams were scared to take Curry because he's so skinny. Minnesota had the two picks before Golden State, and took two different point guards.|
|Apr-25-15|| ||HeMateMe: Will game seven of the Western conference finals feature Kawhi Leonard chasing Steph Curry around the 3 pt line for extended periods of time?|
Remember, I'M the one who told you the NCAA finals would be Wisconsin and Duke.
|Apr-26-15|| ||Jim Bartle: First time I saw Anthony Davis play. Nobody can stop him when he goes to those spin moves. What a player.|
|Apr-26-15|| ||plang: Spurs-Clippers is such a great series.
Paul was terrific today (plus Griffin)
Coaches son played the game of his life coming off the bench.
|Apr-26-15|| ||Calli: Is it the Sunday sweeps? Celtics already out. Toronto? I think it's probable. I give the Mavs the best chance to avoid the quick exit.|
|Apr-26-15|| ||WannaBe: Toronto down 22 pts, third qtr, down series 3-0. Maybe their GM can shout some more obscenity to get the team pumped up...|
|Apr-26-15|| ||Penguincw: And the Raptors are out. :(
I need a new team to cheer for during the playoffs. I'm going for Cavs/Spurs, but I'm open for suggestions. :)
|Apr-26-15|| ||WannaBe: Lakers-Boston. Can't go wrong there.|
|Apr-26-15|| ||plang: Raptors fans must be disappointed - 2 good regular seasons in a row followed by losing in the 1st round as the higher seed|
|Apr-26-15|| ||plang: Celtic fans, on the other hand, must be optimistic - excellent young coach, lots of good young players, a boatload of accumulated draft picks in the next few years.|
They were competitive in all 4 games, never quit - just didn't have an answer for James and Irving
|Apr-26-15|| ||perfidious: <plang> Raptors had also not been at their best for quite some time.|
|Apr-26-15|| ||plang: I still thought they would give the Wizards a more competitive series than they did|
|Apr-27-15|| ||HeMateMe: The Spurs/Clippers is a war. chris Paul was out of his mind this afternoon. I was really surprised they played so well in San Antonio. River's son, apparently only marginally in the NBA, hit 7/8 from the field, I think, at least before the last two minutes. The clips don't seem to fear the Spurs low post defense when Duncan isn't in. Splitter and those two other tall, skinny, slow guys they have might be good passers and shooters, but they are only marginal in rebounding and rim protection. |
I'd be worried if I were the Spurs, it's 2/3 in Los Angeles now. Parker doesn't seem to be 100%. If he was playing better, it's a different team, but he hasn't been a factor.
|Apr-27-15|| ||HeMateMe: "Back in 2008, Rivers’ Celtics would break huddles by shouting, “Ubuntu!" It was a word from the African Bantu language which stresses collective success over individual achievement. While Rivers retired using it to break huddles after leaving Boston, the concept remains the same, and sometimes a team needs to see it in action to truly understand what it means."|
With Doc's raw vocal cords it probably sounded like "YOU BUNNY, YOU BUNNY!", and the resulting laughter relaxed the whole team. Rivers is the only public person with a speaking voice that sounds worse than Bob Dylan's and Tom Waite's.
|Apr-27-15|| ||perfidious: <HMM....Rivers is the only public person with a speaking voice that sounds worse than Bob Dylan's and Tom Waite's.>|
No mean feat, that!
