SA chokes!  Couldn't handle the pressure of a superior opponent.

It's as I thought it would be, a really tight series between the Celtics and Bullets where Washington ultimately ran out of gas down the stretch, on account of having to constantly play their starters huge minutes because their bench is so terrible.

 

Hopefully the Celtics can take a game or two off the Cavs, though they'll obviously ultimately lose the series.

The Nets lose the draft, Celtics get the #1 pick and Lonzo Ball and his dad to the Lakers.

The Brooklyn Nets Boston Celtics won the draft lottery.  I would imagine they will take Markelle Fultz, creating an outright frightening guard combo with Isaiah.

Lonzo's crazy ass dad will be a perfect fit in LA.  :grin:

I wish he would chill a bit. I'm seeing so many rooting against the son because of the dad

I suppose Boston's already started saving their energy for next year with Markelle Fultz and Gordon Hayward.

one cannot help but feel some sympathy for the kings.  manage to get isaiah thomas with a second round pick.  trade him away and watch him become arguable one o' the best pg in the league.  now the kings is likely needing to draft a pg with one of their two lottery picks.

 

shoulda' traded boogie earlier and kept thomas. 

 

HA! Good Fun!

I almost feel sorry for the Kings. Complete mismanagement since the days of Adelman and Webber.

 

But then, I think of my friends from Sac and the schadenfreude fills me with joy.

as a chicago fan, am in a similar situation as the kings following.  

 

though, in all honesty, our basketball fandom has waned considerable since 1993.  as crazy as it sounds, the dominance o' chicago for almost a decade forever ruined our enjoyment o' pro basketball. 

 

'course the college game has become increasingly terrible in recent years.  

 

*shrug*

 

HA! Good Fun!

Remember when eveyrone was fretting over the fact that CLE wasn't going by #1 seed and wouldn't have home court 'advantage'? L0LZ

 

 

It is amazing James has only 4 MVPs. Without him, this CLE 'jauggernaut' would be be struggling to make the playoffs. LMAO

Volo, what are your finals predictions? Warriors blow a 3-1 lead again? Cavs in 4?

 It could go either way. GS is the better team. CLE has the best player. The reason why these two teams are close is becuase they have soemthing other teams don't - money shooting. Both IND and TOR played 'well' against CLE but they simply din't shoot as well. GS (and CLE) will shoot well.

 

It could go either way. GS seems to be rock solid. Last year in their run through playfofs theyw ere rather up and down even pre Finals (ie. down 3-1 to OKC).

 

Of course, i want the Cleveland Lebrons to win but  I would not be surprised if GS did.

Enes Kanter detained in Romania. His passport revoked for his anti-Erdogan politics. Faces possible extradition back to Turkey.

Hope everything works out well for him.
