That's the play! There was no ball fake and Korver was looking at Lebron the whole way. I couldn't believe the whole defense parted down the middle to let Lebron on the game winning dunk.

You might be more inclined to believe it when there's a 300 pound black man running at you full steam ahead. idk though

There is a ball-fake, it's just real quick.  LeBron pushes the ball out to his right as he goes into his 2 steps towards the rim.

I see the pass fake to Shump in the wing as well which Korver buys 100% and then is frustrated when his man in the post bails too.

Yeah, not a good play from Korver, but understandable, IMO.  JR Smith was shooting lights out from beyond the arc, so I can see why Korver would be antsy about the kick-out (Smith was just one ball-swing away from Shumpert on that play, I think).

Correction! 265lb black guy and Korver is 215ish. I've gone up against bigger weight disparities in football way back in the day. I'm an internet tough guy afterall.

I'll concede the ball fake but to me it looked more like Lebron was gathering himself. It still looks funny as shit though with Korver running away from the ball and then throwing his hands up afterwards.

True.
Also just funny (as has been pointed out) to have the entire defense part and given Lebron, of all players, an uncontested drive and dunk down the center of the lane at that point in the game.

Korver must have believed there was help rotating behind him, he was facing the play and the 3 point threat the whole time. It makes him look stupid, but the defensive breakdown was not his, it was behind him. That was some bad team defense.

Curry doing Curry things already

Fucking clippers losing at home game 6

Rockets need p.beverly something bad right now
post #22376 of 27247

Is Bogut really worthy of All-Defensive 2nd team? He doesn't look like he can stop anybody on the Rockets when they are in the paint. Festus Ezeli looks better than him.

post #22377 of 27247

And Terrence Jones doesn't look good at all right now - fumbling passes and generally getting abused on defense. Why isn't Capela in? He was beastly last game.

My god I want to have James Harden's bearded babies (still love you, Noah)
post #22379 of 27247
Harden is playing fucking great. And keeping that fouly stuff to a minimum too

My goodness what a game
