Fucking losers. I was pulling for them to avenge the Lakers, but now fuck them. I hope they lose at least 11.

YES!!!!!

Scottie Pippen and Oscar so happy right now!!

With 2 games left vs the Spurs they could potentially go 71-11. But I don't see them losing any of the 2 games left vs the Grizzlies so I think they still stay in 1st place.

 

There's still a chance that 2 teams finish with at least 70 wins...

It's prolly for the best. Hearing Kerr speak, it sounded like chasing 72 was steering them towards burnout and letdown in the playoffs

I'm from northern CA, I love fast-paced offense, and Steph's camp is held at my high school, but I can't help it: I'm starting to hate the Warriors. Basically everyone on the team gets all huffy with righteous indignation whenever they get a call against them--even when replays show they're clearly in the wrong. I know they're not alone in this, but it's so constant with this crew, and I think it comes from Kerr. 

 

I've never had any respect for Bogut's under the radar dirty play.  Draymond's antics? I've soured on them. But I didn't think I'd start disliking Thompson, Curry, Iguodala. Hell, even Livingston, who I loved before his gruesome knee injury and have pulled for since, gets in on the "who me?" act. SMH.

 

It's a sense of entitlement. 

 

 

Oh, and that call reversal on Steph's blocking foul on Towns was bullshit.

 

Gotta say I'm probably going to be unable not to root against GS from here on out.

allen iverson is going into the hall of fame.... westbrook looks like an AI comparable the argument is that russ isn't really all that because he had his chance to lead a team deep into the playoffs and well.....

iverson lead a team of eric snow and matt geiger into the finals and even won a game against the shaq kobe juggernaut.

Plus, when you're a narcissistic dumbass who has never won a ring, the notion that you're missing some essential "character" gene that's presumably possessed by narcissistic dumbasses who have won rings starts to become part of your narrative.

Don't think Iverson belongs in the HOF. Larry Brown did a great job with that team. For some strange reason Iverson was very popular back then, so I guess in that aspect him bringing a bunch of attention the NBA makes him a hall of famer. Iverson was okay, but I never viewed him as a great player.

I can see not thinking he's HOF, and on a personal level he's even more of a clown than your average NBA star, but the dude was clearly better than "OK". In his prime he averaged 28-30 pts and 5-8 assists per game (on teams that were pretty weak in terms of 2nd-3rd-4th scoring options) while leading or being among the league leaders for steals.

He was good I suppose. I just remember him being an awful jackass, and a ball hog. His career shooting % was pretty bad, and even worse in the playoffs. Still don't think he's a HOF.

No argument on "awful jackass", for sure.

Put aside your personal bias and consider Iverson's professional accomplishments.
League MVP, ROY, 4 time scoring leader, 3 time steals leader, career 26.7 PPG, career 6 assists per game.
You question Iverson's being inducted to the HOF when guys like Calvin Murphy and Bill Walton are in the hall?
It is clear you are not a fan but to question whether he belongs in the HOF is pretty ridiculous.
