post #22306 of 27206
can you imagine another series of flopping and free throw shooting. uggh


i feel like the only team that made great mid season decisions were the rockets. everybody gave away first and second round draft picks to win now in the playoffs, but none of the big ones worked out. rondo cost mavs a first rounder. jeff green a first rounder. afflalo a first rounder. rockets only traded second rounders and got a bunch of decent players that basically helped them win. prigioni, josh smith, corey brewer were all really smart pick ups for practically nothing. if clippers had done it they would've advanced. but instead they trade a first rounder for austin rivers (who played well every other game)

Sadness man. Not even a fan of the clippers fuck it must suck to be a clipper right now. They had that series locked up.

Any footage of balmer post game?

Clips were tir d but they choked up a fucking storm. I wanted the rockets out of my life after game 4 but they absolutely earned respect w/ how they responded.

James harden is such a weird player. Such incredible court vision, yet he ends a number of possessions with terrible step backs. Such a good first step. He has totally perfected the art of not traveling. So unbelievable at drawing fouls. He flops, sure, and sometimes he initiates contact, but no more than most elite scorers. Vast majority of fouls against him are totally legit.

also everybody focused their mid season pickups around offense. rockets focused on defense

Not in my book. Sure, there is contact so maybe some excessively pedantic and unnuanced interpretation of the rulebook may prove out that statement. But all foul rules are created to prevent a defender from stopping the offensive player through physical contact. There is no spirit of the rule that would permit a foul to be a situation where you hook your entire arm into my armpit and start flailing around like a hooked largemouth bass

I wish the Spurs were still around in these playoffs.

I love it when you talk dirty.

I've been on the Harden bandwagon since forever and never left. He was rubbish in the earlier playoff games but really picked up some steam this past week. Really wish they had Beverley right now.

apparently he's set to return late may so might make WCF or finals

What in my post was bias or exaggeration? Happy to talk facts or opinion but I have no time for ambiguously sarcastic fuckery
