Go Bullets?

Oh, how my Bulls have fallen.

Well, there's always next year, when Rose is all healed up, and he'll play for 8 games and then get hurt for the rest of the season and we can do this shiat all over again.

Sterling banned for LIFE, not indefinitely...

$2.5 Million fine.  Maximum amount.

Leaks were wrong.

It'll be very interesting to see what goes down in LA tonight.  I think the NBA's decision to drop the banhammer this afternoon was to stem any more bad PR- which would be in force tonight for sure.

Wizards win, but it's close, possibly OT.
OKC puts together a convincing win
Clippers still too distracted over the past few days to prepare properly, get crushed in the first half, come back in the second, but the hole is just too deep.

An NBA thread before the games start?


Let's go Wizards.
 
2014-04-29 06:42:13 PM  
I am looking forward to the Clippers game tipping and to put all this shiat behind us. These playoffs have been awesome so far and it sucks there is this cloud hanging over the games.
 
2014-04-29 07:00:34 PM  
The cheers for the Clippers when they take the court would be deafening if Clippers fans were capable of such a thing.

Now that the idiot holding them back for years is gone, the party should make Animal House look like Kirk Cameron's birthday.

Amen. He was the worst owner in the league, and that was before he was outed as a racist asshat.

I have a feeling I'm gonna wish they boycotted, if only for one extra day in the playoffs, lol. Go Bulls!

Is Sterling's girlfriend on the market now or what?

I have some things I'd like us to put on tape.

We saw the last of the Bobcats last night. RIP.
 
2014-04-29 07:38:57 PM  
I like the Bulls, the Thunder, and the Clippers tonight.

Bulls are desperate so they win one more before bowing out. Thunder because I *think* they are the better team even though Memphis is their nightmare matchup.

Clippers because I think this Sterling shiat is being overblown as far as the effects on the players. They gagged the game away the day the news came out, I think they rally together today and win.
 
2014-04-29 07:42:58 PM  
Wiz, Thunder, Clips

I am sorry to my Griz. Go out and prove me wrong.
 
2014-04-29 07:58:50 PM  
I was disappointed Sterling was only banned for life. What if he comes back as a zombie?

I do enjoy that Jordan's squad, since he became majority owner, has still never once beaten a team with LeBron on it.

As someone who used to have one of those cursive 90s New Era caps of the Hornets, I'm not sad.  It'll be nice to have the old teal and purple back where it belongs.

2014-04-29 08:13:49 PM  
I was curious how the news would affect ticket availability when the news broke on Saturday.  Stubhub showed the cheapest seat was about $40.  Upon hearing the news of Sterling's ban this morning, I considered going to tonight's game.  The least expensive ticket on Stubhub now is about $131 and there are less than 200 tickets available.  It looks like this city has forgiven and is embracing the Clippers.
I hope Magic Johnson actually buys the team although there was a lot of rhetoric from Laker fans on sports radio yesterday calling him a turncoat if he does.

IAmRight: I do enjoy that Jordan's squad, since he became majority owner, has still never once beaten a team with LeBron on it.


Wow, that is not good.  I do love how LeBron and Spo spoke about the Cats last night following the game.  They seem to be on the right track and they have the Pistons and Blazers first round picks this year (dont think they have their own).

IAmRight: Go Wiz, Griz, and W's.


This is where my heart lies.

My last comments on this Sterling thing for now.

Silver is a smart man.  "He is not just the owners commissioner, he is the players commissioner."  Not a bad way to start your tenure.

As a former fantasy owner, I feel this sentiment.

robsul82: Dunleavy not feeling it from 3.


They need him to hit a few shots early, it will keep the defenders honest.  They need every inch they can get.
 
2014-04-29 08:28:54 PM  
You know what will really punish an owner?  Buying a ticket to a game and then not going.  Yeah, that'll show him.

The place will be packed.  And loud.  And there'll be some interesting crowd chants.
 
2014-04-29 08:30:49 PM  
I think the Wiz are gonna finish off the Bulls tonight, which makes me sad as a Bulls fan. I think OKC will win, and the Clippers are gonna pull off the win, but that game might be crazy from just all the weird stuff going on in Clipperland. Hopefully the Clippers finally get a decent human being as their owner, Sterling made that franchise a joke for so long.

Luckily, the pressure of protesting the game was taken off of the players and fans and the league squashed the situation.

I STILL have my Florida Panthers Starter jacket.  The one with the front pocket with the team wordmark on it, the logo on the back and the second & third colors used on the shoulders.  Use it when I use the snowplow, so I don't get my good coat wet.

I knew we weren't gonna get super far in the playoffs, but I expected to win more than one goddamn game.

This has been an embarrassing series to watch, especially after the success the Bulls have had since New Years.
 
2014-04-29 10:31:14 PM

Good series Bulls.

A good number of people were picking the Wizards against a bone-weary, offensively depleted Bulls team, but... five games? Look out, Atlanta.

The Wiz were a match up disaster for them.  That and they dont have anyone who can score the ball consistently.

The best part of this first round are the match ups.  Made for great ball.

Tip of the cap to the Bulls.  I actually liked them this year. *spit*

I know everyone wants parity and upsets in the NBA but NOBODY is going to watch Wiz/Hawks.  I really want the Pacers to pull this out.

I am even conflicted about the Thunder losing.  I like seeing great players put it together.

So conflicted but I am not one of the NEEDPARITY people.

I am definitely a bandwagon Bullets/Wizards fan, but hell, the Wizards have a lot of je ne sais quoi.  Best team in DC now, which is awesome.

Reggie Jackson chucking the ball as he runs across the lane is not a good play.

I am, but I'm a guy who watched a lot of Charlotte games in the regular season. Well, everyone has discovered how sneakily fun that team is now. Let me put it this way: my team is the Celtics, and I watched a lot of their games. Wiz/Hawks will be a breath of fresh air.

I definitely agree about the Thunder if they go down. Durant is gonna get his first MVP this year, and it would be a shame if he isn't. The Thunder are in an insane west though, The Griz are so much better than a normal 7 seed. The Pacers, man, I just think they benefited from a eastern conference that was insanely bad to start the year. I just would hate to see the Heat sweep there way to the Finals against bad teams. If they win it all I'd see that as diminishing their accomplishment.

Someone said it the other day and they were spot on, the Pacers are dying from the Disease of Me.  There is no coming back from it.

The Thunder down 6 going into 4th Q.

You can only play who you're paired against. Unless you tank into hopefully losing round one to get an "easier" matchup, I guess...

Kevin Durant apparently.

Probably Scott Brooks too. I mean, Perkins does still play significant minutes

That game was the pro wrestling equivalent of a sixty-minute time-limit draw and the final fall came after the buzzer sounded.  Good lord, this series is insane.

Disagree, since f*ck Clay Bennett forever and eh, the Pacers were getting awfully mouthy for a bunch of above-average role players.

Tough to root for the Dubs after getting caught up with how Jackson's been running the team as coach. Glad neither GS nor LA will be winning anything.

Yes, I know Seattle people will never be able to get over justifiably hating the Thunder.

The Pacers took the Heat to 7 last year. They may not be the 1 seed they are now but I certainly don't think they are "a group of average player." They have talent, lots of it, but they have matchup and mental issues they need to sort out.

The Playoffs are worse off without the league's stars. I recognize this is an unpopular opinion around here but it is mine nonetheless.
