NBA 2016-2017 Season Thread - Page 1559

It was a great series, the best of the 2015 post-season for sure and that is why I didn't even rub it in Steve's face (and I know damn well he expected it), it was just a hard fought and evenly matched series.

But dude seems genuinely mad that his reigning champs lost, to a team that they have been whipping finally got one over them and once again, killed the only thing the Spurs can't do and that is win a back to back championship. lol8[1].gif



The choke is definitely on the Houston series. Surprised it happened but after it has settled, of course it would happen to the Clips.



I think the Clips should just embrace their rep and just be like a Bad Boys 2.0 or something. They got Pierce (god I hate this guy still) and Stephenson now. CP3 is as bitchy and dirty as ever and Blake and Deandre should just mow some people down.

I still dont think Clips choked. They were just really tired especially after the Spurs series. I mean they got no relief from the bench

Bad Boys 2.0 would be fucking awesome. They're not assholes tho. I mean DJ is no Laimbeer. He's more a pussy than a sadistic douchebag

I'll let you humble brag that shit and let you feel better about yourself.

Damn- I was hoping to draw you into a flame war. It's been so long... smile.gif

And going forward the Spurs might be winning a back to back or two.

As great their line-up is I still don't think they can do it without a healthy Parker and dude is just getting old and injuries are piling up just like Ginobili.

I still think it's a choke, it's very reminiscent of the CP3 try to get a foul instead of dribbling out the clock and ending up with a turn over fiasco. When they gave the Clips the best odds of winning a chip after beating the Spurs and led Houston 3-1 while all other series was tied 2-2, I honestly thought to myself, "shit, they are fucked!" It was just to good to be true and just know deep inside somethings going to happen, its the goddamn Clippers! And then it happened.

I mean the team may not be assholes but seems like the league sees them as such so embrace it. And Laimbeer 2.0 doesn't really belong in today's touch foul soft league so Deandre just need to pick a little something from CP3.

DWill wants out of his contract with the Nets so he could join Dallas.

And Matthews' contract got bumped from $57m to $70m, he should thank DJ.


The Mavs also got Pachulia.

You're missing the genesis of the comment. It's not about who RFX is a fan of. It's about idfnl being an RFX fanboi.

Well, the bench is part of the team, no? Teams choke for a lot of reasons. They're tired, they panic, key players don't contribute, whatever. But it's pretty hard not to see that collapse as choking.

Someone in the Mavs' front office should prank Cuban by telling him that Pachulia backed out because he wants to play with Jordan on the Clips.

that's a good point, but i kinda disagree. like do you think lebron choked in the finals? cuz they lost cuz he got tired. the bench didn't choke they just sucked and the starters didn't get enough rest to play 48 minutes every game.

but i also kinda agree. cuz they were up 3-1. only had to win a single game

that was fantastic. thanks

I see your point (and would not say that LeBron choked), but I think it's a bit different when you talk about a team as opposed to an individual. In any event, with either a team or an individual, I wouldn't say that just coming up short is "choking". Nor would I necessarily call getting blown out "choking". More the opposite -- when you have a big lead and let it slip away, the c-word becomes part of the discussion. If Scottie Pippen and 'Sheed are involved, it's highly likely.

ah. i totally agree with that

Jordan Clarkson is so legit. I hope either him or dangelo develop some good off ball shooting skills

Dude is owning all these brand name rookies
