Durant should have went all the way and forced a call or a play, so much indecision there at the end for them

Wow, that was..poor shot selection by Durant, there.

I think not getting the ball right away might have thrown him off. Maybe he didn't know how much time or the situation due to the earlier confusion.

Now, can Duncan get past the demons of Memphis from 2 years ago and basically go out on top.

Congrats to the Grizz,

/listening to this commentator describe (read as barely contained screaming) every little detail of Allen shoot a free throw was intense and awesome. I think I only want to listen to the games from now on

Well done Memphis. I actually bought into some of the crap the talking heads were spewing about how OKC might be better off without Westbrook's streaky shooting. Nope.

Yeah, randolph hit a game winning three from the elbow in that series, and duncan got knocked all over the place with him and ginobli coming off injuries, I think they have a chance, golden state would get murdered by memphis, so I hope for san antonio

Oh, dude, the radio guys are always the best.  I put on the radio broadcast when I watch blazer games on TV sometimes, although it's way better when you don't have a visual.

Yeah a Memphis-San Antontio series is really gonna put Mike Connely to the test on defense.

Few things better then listening to the home teams radio while watching the game its amazing how biased they get, and usually funny

It would be a heck of a transition from small ball to half court defense, Blair usually gets some good minutes against randolph duncan will be giving his duncan face alot I am sure

Oh for sure.  Randolph has more trouble against shorter and more agile defenders than the rim defenders like Ibaka and Perk.

Watching the TNT after game show now, I like how Marc Gasol puts a little fade on his jumper, kinda looks like a mini Dirk sometimes.

I like how barkley doesnt know anyones on the grizz name it seems, he it a close enough type person when it come to pronouncing things

continued note, Blair seems to me to be the most underutilized player, he always goes 100% attack on offense and D and plays with heart and is versatile

Agreed on Blair, I think he is probably I little over-matched against some opponents, but I'll be damned if he doesn't throw everything he has into every game he plays.

you know, when you look at all the talking heads and puppets that tow the hype-line, it's not surprising at all that Chuck Barkley has two Emmy awards for Sports Broadcasting.  It can be hard to decipher what exactly he's getting at, but he makes a lot of salient points and he'd be the first one to say he's full of shiat.

Yeah, from looking at Fark you'd think that the NHL and Pro Wrestling are the only American sports.

TheJoe03: ongbok: TheJoe03: Most valuable teams in the NBA:
1. NY Knicks
2. LA Lakers
3. Chicago Bulls
4. Boston Celtics
5. Dallas Mavericks
6. Miami Heat
7. Houston Rockets
8. Golden State Warriors
9. Brooklyn Nets
10. San Antonio Spurs

It appears market size has a definite impact on the value of a team. If the Knicks played ball in San Antonio that would probably be one of the poorest teams in the league since they've sucked pretty hard for a while. It just took them a couple winning seasons to become the richest team.

There are a lot of old players that would be marketing gold if they played in today's NBA. All of those guys that came out of the old Yugoslavian national team, Detlef Schrmepf, and my favorite European player of all time,  Sarunas Marciulionis. If there was ever the big marketing push to Europe that the NBA has today those guys would have been some of the most wanted players in the NBA. Well maybe not
Sarunas Marciulionis, but that dude would make that behind the back pass right on the money after took the slowest drive to the hole you had ever seen in your life, and he could hit a shot from just about every place on the court.

Those Yugoslavians earning respect on the court is the reason opportunities exist for foreign players now. Crazy how global the game is now, I doubt anyone in the 80s saw it coming.


Yeah they did, and the really sad thing is that those guys really couldn't do a lot to be ambassadors to the world for players from that part of the world. Back when they were making their names in the NBA that part of the world was in the middle of war. All those guys from the old Yugoslavia team were all friends, but they were afraid to say anything about what was going on back there or even be seen talking to each other or even being seen being friendly to each other on the court out of fear what would happen to their families.

They say the best player to come from that team was Dražen Petrović, and he went out with his boots on.

Did you watch the ESPN special on it? if not it was a great and some what depressing story, Vlade divacs does most of the talking

Yes I saw the special, and I saw it all play out in Chicago. I was pointing out about how those guys were all teammates and friends until all that broke out, and after they couldn't talk to each other. In interviews after games if a reporter asked Toni Kukoc about Vlade Dvacs he would just walk away from them. I remember this stuff. I remember Vlade Dvacs asking reporters not to ask any of them about the conflict. I remember at the old Chicago Stadium in one corner of the 2nd balcony there would be a huge crowd with Croatian flags cheering on Kukoc and when there was a team with a Serbian player playing there would be a huge crowd on the other side of the stadium in the balcony with a Serbian flag cheering. It was a potentially volatile time in the NBA because they wanted players from that area, but they did handle it quietly.

In fact I think I'm going to watch that 30 for 30 again.

oMaJoJ: JonPace: I'm surprised at the pass the media has given Rose over refusing to play. He's not even saying he's not fully healed or he's still in pain. Just that he's not mentally ready, which is ridiculous. If this had been Dirk Nowitzki a few years ago, or Lebron James 2 years ago the media would have eaten them alive. When you think of how much heart the rest of the team showed in this series it really should piss Chicago fans off.

And if he came back, disputed a Chicago play call scheme that learned to play without him there because hey, he's Derrick Rose, why bring him back if you're not going to use him, and Miami went right at his rusty ass, he would've gotten hell for that too.


ok, but he was cleared to play during the regular season so he would be in sync with his team by now. Regardless, it would be difficult for me to see this beat up team being worse with Derrick Rose

I miss watching Rose play but I'm really glad he took this year off instead of Gilbert Arenas'ing his knee.

I was happy with the Bulls game.  I would have been happier if they won, but they really made Miami fight for it.  Considering the injuries, they really showed some strength wining the first game on the road, and then almost winning this one on the road.

I think Nate Robinson may now be my all-time favorite player.

Developed a lot of respect for the Heat too, even the circus freak Andersen.  That guy always seems to be in the right spot at the right time.
