The Mavs need to win today. I don't know how I can cope without Boban.

I am amazed their bubble hasn't popped. How are they keeping the egos of that many professions athletes in check, such that they aren't sneaking in girlfriends, boyfriends, and groupies?

Where it's going to get even more difficult?  If a team sweeps and has to wait for their next opponent to finish a 7 game series, that's going to be a looooong wait in the bubble.  Rumors this week that players are already trying to shorten time between series'.

Celtis have so many weapons, not sure how sixers feels about getting horford, they probably wish they had butler back

I don't know, they've already got a bunch of random parts that don't fit, last thing they need is a guard who's not a long range shooter.  I think they'd be better off to get Covington back
 
2020-08-23 3:01:55 PM  
That was a nasty fall for Harris.  His head bounced off the court.  I hope he is OK.

I thought the initial butler trade was terrible, covington and saric would be better to have now

They just showed Doncic do a little hop that worried me, but then they cut to him walking normally.  Whew

His drives aren't gonna be as aggressive, though, and the Mavs are doomed.

/hope I'm wrong

Was actually just looking at something related to this.  I was wondering about Mavs' contract status recently, hoping the key role players return because they're all playing so well together.

Just looked this up and it looks like everyone who matters at all is covered for next year.  Except Burke.  Hope they get him back next year, but I have no idea how much money he's looking for or how he feels about Dallas.

Sorry, just realized Hardaway has a player option for next year; thought that was a team option.  Hope he picks it up; never seen him be this relevant anywhere else and these guys are fun

I mean, you get at least one more game of him.

I've somehow been completely oblivious to Harrell calling Doncic a biatch ass white boy

they did not do well at first.  They forgot to have a stable of hookers and blackjack tables in the bubble.

They have since allowed visitors...family and friends you have "an established relationship with".

so you can bring in your regular escort, but not any new talent.

I've been hoping to see a Lakers-Clippers series just for entertainment value.  But it's pretty hard not to root for this Mavs team, and I'm already pretty much rooting for the Blazers.  Screw it.

Also, I don't think we've ever seen this many good games in the first round.  Kind of a shame we can't have a neutral site all the time

Pacers Miami I was hoping for 7, and depending on if Denver wakes up that may be terrible also

I wanted all series to go at least 6

TSN crew trying to jinx the sweep with the broom on the studio floor.

Raps w/o Lowry, and playing a lot of bench are up by 30 with 2:30 left. I think we got this.
 
2020-08-23 9:12:40 PM  
100 pts just from the bench... holy [swearword]
 
2020-08-23 9:13:49 PM  
Brooklyn, congrats on being a cool story for a couple of weeks.  You guys play great team basketball when Kyrie's not around.  Hope Durant is all the way back to being Durant next season (also hoping we have one of those, who knows when)
 
2020-08-23 9:20:35 PM  
Had a work party, but hoooolllllyyyyy sh*t Luka.

And also LMFAO Playoff P.

Durant kyrie DeAndre lavert Allen would be a mean 5
 
2020-08-23 9:33:20 PM  
Hearing first probable day for Raps/Celtics is Thursday. Lowry should be good with 4 days off that ankle.
 
2020-08-23 9:35:08 PM

100 from the bench(!) 150 is a franchise playoff record.

What's beautiful is that Kyrie and Durant will submarine any shot they have at a title.

Hard to imagine enough ball to go around, and they are both head cases

Boban lives to fight another day.

JerseyTim: Boban lives to fight another day.


Again, the series is now tied 2-2, so he was already gonna play another day.

But hopefully he gets another series.

Also, I wish I liked a Jazz player 'cause I LOVEEEE the sunset jerseys

Yeah, and I think Deandre is washed, which will become even more true over time, obviously.  I know they were made to sign him (basically); will they have to give him minutes?

Durant should make them better, but earlier this season it certainly looked like Kyrie took a team, that played really well as a team, and made them seem disjointed.  Same thing in Boston.

Still kind of surprised KD wanted Kyrie and I'm not sure he thought it through.  "Oh, Lebron can win a title with Kyrie, but you can't?"  KD also has rabbit ears, and now he's going to deal with a collection of media assholes who are much worse that what he had with OKC.

I genuinely hope it works.  I like KD, and having a good team in New York would be fun.  But I'm not especially optimistic

I watched Utah in the play in games and they look like a different team
 
2020-08-23 11:38:08 PM  
Damn, Donovan
 
2020-08-23 11:51:18 PM  
Double damn, they're both at 50

Naido: Double damn, they're both at 50


Yeah I really wonder how the game goes if murray gets that foul on gobert, 2 shots down 2 with over 30 seconds
