Is there a basketball version of goon juice?

Just give the goddamn Nets the title already. At least they're not the Knicks.

Why do you prefer a superteam assembled of quite a few unlikables over a team that laughably hasn't done jack shiat in decades and hasn't won a title in most NBA fans' lifetimes?
 
2021-06-08 7:54:33 PM  
..yeah, this is more how I expected Game 1 to start
 
2021-06-08 8:17:16 PM  
6ers in 5.

Knicks won one game in the playoffs and the fans went wild.

Imagine if they'd won the whole show.

I'd be at Times Square in Knicks gear with the price tags still hanging off of it.

Atl bench outscoring their starters.
 
2021-06-08 8:54:45 PM  
if the Hawks bench had scored as much as the Sixers bench, the score would be 23-57.

I still have a soft spot for Atlanta from the great team in the superstation days. Spud,Doc,Dominique,Kevin Willis, man that was such a great team to watch.

Yup, same here.  Man those guys were fun.  More entertaining even than the Bulls usually.

Just got home.   Checked in on the score earlier and the Hawks were being murdered.  Not so much now.

I'm part of the crowd that thinks the Sixers need an overhaul.  Embiid and Simmons just don't work together.  I predict that they have no chance at all of winning the title.

Saw a lot of 11 AM Pacific Cubs games too. And the Braves were great. Then TNT came along and ruined it.

human highlight reel era 

were the bulls statistically better in the mid to late 80s?

in an alternate universe, maybe nique is the jordan of their nba after he gets a team around him and jordan is remembered like pistol pete

I was baffled that the Braves weren't better.  Dale Murphy *and* Bob Horner, for Pete's sake!   Not to mention Jerry Royster, Chris Chambliss, etc, etc.  I loved that sorry ass team.

Credit to the Hawks, they fight like hell.  I think they like playing in front of a crowd that makes noise.
 
2021-06-08 9:36:45 PM  
Why is Embiid shooting from the free throw line?  Just dumb.

Gin and Gatorade?

they've fought back 3 or 4 times since I switched this on -- when the 76ers had their biggest lead

let's see if they have a 4th run in them here in the 4th
 
2021-06-08 9:54:03 PM  
probably not
 
2021-06-08 9:55:06 PM  
Young likes noise.  Silly Sixer fans.
 
2021-06-08 9:56:25 PM  
Sixers likely take this series, but it'll at least go 6. Hawks will take at least 1 in ATL.
 
2021-06-08 10:02:54 PM  
Welp, fun while it lasted.  Hope their fans behave like they give a damn when the series goes to Atlanta.
 
2021-06-08 10:04:37 PM  
Jesus, Steph
 
2021-06-08 10:06:28 PM  
time for the sixers to lose a huge lead in the 4th only to hang on at the end?
 
2021-06-08 10:14:13 PM  
that was a Euro step!

in that he traveled so far it took him halfway to Europe

as I mentioned in another thread, outside of the MLS team, Atlanta fans aren't terribly.. passionate.. about the home team

It's the NBA; probably a China step.

oh god, Utah's court is ugly AF
 
2021-06-08 10:25:42 PM  
go jazz, i guess

Yeah, I hate the 80s Astros look.  I hate that a Utah team is called the Jazz.  Trying to root for them, but they make it tough.

That's kind of unsurprising.  When I lived in ATL, I rarely met anyone who was from there; huge international population, obviously.

You can say that about most big cities, it's no excuse. ATL just has shiatty pro fans. Them, Houston, San Diego, and Florida in general.

Go Jazz.
 
2021-06-09 12:23:17 AM  
This is a great game, much better than I expected.  Didn't expect this much juice from the Clips, coming off a game 7.
 
2021-06-09 12:55:57 AM  
Great game!
 
2021-06-09 1:06:53 AM  
I was enjoying Twitter utterly destroy child rapist and obvious (for that reason more than anything) hero of the state of Utah Karl Malone...

And then Paul George f*cked it up.
