Waiting the extra day for more "ratings" and not having a playoff game during the day on a weekend doesn't help.

\seriously, why the fark do the NBA, NHL and MLB all think you can't have daytime playoffs on a weekend??
 
2012-06-17 12:18:05 PM
Si SI I'm very intrigued.

If the Seattle fans walk away angry, you have to make sure to catch them well before the game is over. If you wait around for their team to actually lose, they will all already be gone and throwing a hissy fit in the parking lot.

Seattle for the most part doesn't give a sh*t about the NBA, except when asked by out of towners or the media. The Sonics theft killed a lot of the interest. There's a diehard core carrying the torch but that is about it. Now we seem to be getting an ownership group together to do it right, which is what should have happened 10 years ago but didn't. Stern, Bennett, Schultz and our local gang of idiots (Licata, Nickels, the Council) can all still go DIAF though.

Generation_D: The Sonics theft


To be clear, they were not "stolen" from us. We let the farkers go because we already have many stadiums in the city and they wanted YET ANOTHER. Good riddance, don't let the door hit you on your way out, etc.

Over/under for total points this game is 197.5...for Mario Chalmers.
 
2012-06-17 04:47:35 PM
That H/L is very accurate.

Not sure which thread to post in tonight, anyone see the scripts for Game 3 vs. No Way Out? I'm wondering which will be more compelling/interesting tonight?

Serious note though: Who are the officials tonight? Is it anyone who really leans OKC/Heat (i.e. they have a great record with one of them)? Or is there any official that notoriously helps the home or away team? I'm more inclined to predict based on that now.

/though my Heat in 5 thing is still available
//I will have the ultimate sad if that fear comes true

It hasn't been quite that early for a while, but this season's ending is delayed compared to previous because of the strike. Without the strike it would have been going at the same time as the Stanley Cup.

This!

Also:

I can't believe that asshole Nickels has even entertained the idea of running for secretary of state.

Heat are favored by 4, I got OKC winning by 2.

Hey what a suprise, westbrook is missing every shot amd refusing to pass to wide open teammates. Where have we seen this before?

Breaking News: the heat half-court offense still terrible
 
2012-06-17 08:19:14 PM
Westbrook passes up a three they work the ball and Perk gets 2. Maybe he's learning.
 
2012-06-17 08:20:41 PM
Westbrook hasnt shot in the last 3 possesions. OKC on a six point run.
 
2012-06-17 08:25:57 PM
16-14 Heat. I think this even start strongly favors the Thunder. Westbrook started a crappy 1-4 shooting and to his credit he started passing and now they're right there with them. None of Miamis Marginal 9 have stepped up yet.
 
2012-06-17 08:26:29 PM
Wow, huge offensive rebound and put back

Apparantly were to the point where the announcers don't even point it out when James travels. James dribles picks up the ball steps twice broad jumps about 4 feet one more step and shoots. Announcer: James hopsteps, shoots, what a play.

From what I can remember this has been going on in the NBA forever. I do believe a bit in the conspiracy that refs are told not call what they should on certain players.

They've allowed travelling forever, you're right, but the announcers would usually make a sarcastic remark or wisecrack about how obvious it was. Sometimes they would even slow mo it and count out the steps.

Yeah true, I'm watching on the Xbox ESPN app, don't know if it is the same commentators on ABC but one of these guys (don't know their names) is totally in the tank for LeBron and constantly hates on the refs for every call. Reminds me of John Gruden.

Yeah. My team went out in the first round. Again. So I'm just enjoying some really good basketball. Like some one in another thread said. Two heels in a title bout? Who the hell thought that up?

I like to think that like in video games each person is given a signature move. Basically everyone is allowed a certain style of traveling but you have to register it at the beginning of the season. LeBron's move is called the "Jim Brown" because he picks up his dribble, gets hit for the foul as he plows up the middle for a 3-4 step(yard) gain.
