As a hockey farker, I'll give you a freebie.  Our thread isn't even green yet, but I bet we already have more posts than you.

What's up with that? I love hockey too, but it's so disproportionate how many posts a random hockey thread gets vs any other live sports threads.

Are hockey fans just that much more talkative?

Meh, half of them are in Caturday mode.  They just post pictures of their cats memes while being oblivious to the actual games.

Well, at least I am.  I imagined an entire thread,and hockey farkers spent all night listening to my nonsense.  And yes, we are talkative like a toddler with a ziplock bag of Cheerios

Listen here.  I didn't wake up at 8am PT to ignore the game.  Just because we have hundreds of memes, curated over years of playoffs.  It only goes to show how much the hockey farkers are engaged in the games.

I think his current job pays better.

But if the NBA ceases to exist for some reason...

I'm just being a smart ass, he's an awesome coach, no doubt. Just looks like he should be teaching math.

Maybe he could have a sideline as a sitcom dad, in the offseason.

Just got home and . . . wow

No Raptor has more than 7 points.  Marcus Smart has 10 at the half; I suspect he has made some hellacious plays that I can't see in the box score

Siakam with 4 points, 3 FG attempts.  Ouch
 
2020-09-07 8:06:07 PM  
Come on 74 points in the half for the Raptors

"Scored the ball" *twitch*

Just stop.  What the hell else would he score?  Stop.  We need a movement to punish commentators who say that.  A cancel culture, if you will.

I don't think it's going to happen, but at this moment this game is still *just* within reach, the way the NBA can be at times.  But the moment is slipping away.  Commentator just mentioned him:  did Fark have a Lou Brock thread?

They'll win Game 6. NBA needs to keep the conferences somewhat near the same schedule even though the East didn't have enough teams to bother having a first round.

Toronto is basically tied with Chicago for forth largest market in the top 2/3rds of North America, but has a national fan base equal to basically all of CA that has three popular teams...

Good point.  I wonder what the numbers show: which market is drawing the most eyeballs while they play

That stat will be wildly different on each side of the border.

Oh, I'm just making things up.

Really I hope the Raps win Game 6 because I want them to win the series.

I don't think Jokic would be interested.

I'd chat it up being from Denver and 'Go Avs' during this playoff season but my bandwidth for sports got truncated since Covid took over and I only really started watching NHL in the postseason. To thump my chest on Fark after Avs wins would have been lame.

He doesn't strike me as being interested in a high level of physical activity year-round

Kawhi, when he uses it, has a foul-drawing ability close to Harden's, only they're all real fouls
 
2020-09-07 11:23:44 PM  
Speaking of Harden, nice try Murray
 
2020-09-07 11:42:10 PM  
Damn.  Nuggets had some great looks with between 2 and 4 minutes left
 
2020-09-07 11:56:39 PM  
Poor Murray.  That Kawhi block is going to play a million times by tomorrow night.  Ruthless

"There's no replacing the Real Chris Paul."

Yeah, right. Just ask the Rockets and the Clippers, the last two teams to replace the real Chris Paul. Both of them are still alive in the playoffs and doing much better without him.

One thing is certain about Chris Paul; when you need him most, when your playoff hopes are on the line, Chris Paul will be there to either get injured or choke. There's never been any other outcome.
 
2020-09-08 12:07:14 AM  
LOL. Very late to the party. I just remembered I'm watching this on the DVR.

Now be fair, Paul won't *just* get injured or choke.  He will work the refs.  Constantly.  Even if he's injured.

Hilarious comeuppance:  at the end of a game in the last week, Paul went to the refs to swear he called a TO prior to the foul that cost them the game.  The refs blew him off, because he pulls that move all the time.  Replay showed he really had called the timeout.  Bwahaha.  Chris Paul never heard the story of the Boy Who Cried Wolf
