    the hawks are going to be amazing with horford back. antic needs to get better at D and develop a post game. i can definitely also see them as a 3 seed in the east even a 2 seed and yeah they need some wing players and another good role player big



    fuck me. i know right?

    i think i troll myself sometimes


    no. grizzlies defense have been just incredible especially tony allen on kevin muffins durant. dude just can't get picked. doesn't matter who the guy setting the screen is. tony allen always finds a way to slither through the screen




    i hope all of the west conference gets game 7s and the east gets two game 7s.

    I was thinking last night about who the title favorite currently is. It's interesting how this crazy 1st round has affected it all in my mind. Obviously now MIA is the clear clear favorite in the east, but SA has looked very shaky, even potentially more than OKC (ppl expected a sweep or at most win in 5; lots expected MEM to give OKC trouble). LAC has also looked iffy at times, and Paul has been underwhelming and banged up the whole series. If OKC makes it out, I would still honestly expect them to come out of the west. I don't think SA can handle that matchup. For me, it'd be hard to pick against MIA right now.

    Also interesting that IND is so high (IMO they have 0 chance of even making the finals) HOU is still so high, and GS is so damn low.

    Current odds from Bovada:
    San Antonio Spurs: 3/1
    Miami Heat: 5/1
    Oklahoma City Thunder: 11/2
    Los Angeles Clippers: 8/1
    Indiana Pacers: 16/1
    Washington Wizards: 25/1
    Portland Trailblazers: 33/1
    Toronto Raptors: 33/1
    Brooklyn Nets: 40/1
    Houston Rockets: 40/1
    Memphis Grizzlies: 40/1
    Golden State Warriors: 50/1
    Atlanta Hawks: 100/1
    Dallas Mavericks: 125/1

    Who doesn't want to see Duncan, Pop, and co. win one more ring? Especially after last year's finals

    And damn, I had high hopes for the Nets coming into the playoffs but DeRozan and Lowry are just lighting it up

    Well I'm a little anti conspiracy but I think if either shoved somebody's head pretty hard I would think they'd get ejected and suspended.

    They're not that stupid tho

    they leave the rule purposely ambiguous so that they can be the final arbitrators of who gets ejected. Randolph was not ejected for the game, which means the refs did not think it was a punch. I don't even know what the league considers a punch (closed fist but is it a punch if it connects or not? what if its not thrown but rather "pushed" like Zach did?). And then there is the rule about getting off the bench and going on the court during an altercation. George obviously left the bench on stepped on the court during the Scott/Hill altercation but again, the rule is ambiguous enough where they can make it whatever they want it to be.

    These games are so awesome.

    Really disappointed about ZBo. W/ Conley at half-speed, the grizzle are done.

    Couple of things:

    Spurs had 6 players on the court during the 1.3 sec full-court heave!!!

    @indesertumAs I typed this Lin got stuck w/ the ball on the right wing w/ 5 secs left (passed by Harden) and he drained a 3 w/ good form w/ a hand in his face :rotflmao:
