    It would seem so (Shaq). Charles plays the bumbler so well off Kenny because every once in a while he actually drops these "salt of the earth" knowledge bombs that let you know that Sir Chaz isn't an idiot. Shaq on the other hand…. :lol:

    +1 Davis. Pelicans played well. That missed 3, six-point swing was the dagger. (no endorsement of using the word "dagger" is implied by this post :happy: )

    Chicago scored 11 points in the first quarter, it was looking like a 56-59 final score, thankfully the game improved. It's been an entertaining 2 games. The Bucks don't have a chance, but they do play entertaining ball. Giannis, for all his growth, regressed last night. I hope Mirotic isn't hurt, they guy is fun to watch.

    Credit NO for making a game of it. Evans hobbling and no Holiday, they're competitive. Davis needs to take better shots, and get more of them. He and Evans were spent in the 4th. Monty Williams put up some good plays after timeouts, for all the shit he gets. But the Warriors are clearly dominant. The bench especially. Green's mr nasty down the court routine is starting to bore me, and his publicist should tell Steph to stop gnawing on the mouthpiece so much.


    Yup. I think it was Gordon that missed the wide open 3, would have tied or cut it to 1, then GS made a mini-run and it was over.

    Both NO and the Bucks totally shit the bed in the late 4th after playing the favored team really tough. The funny thing about the Bucks is that they totally lost focus after Zaza Pachulia got ejected. Zaza = veteran leadership!! :lol:

    Until that point, Zaza looked good.

    i don't know. i got the same feeling watching GS last night that i used to get with great laker teams. they play just well enough to win because they know they can always put the pedal down and blow anyone out.

    The starting 5 didn't play so well, but the 2nd unit was on fire. The Warriors are probably the deepest team in the playoffs.

    Wow, Budenholzer (Hawks coach) won CotY award over Kerr.

    Glad to see the Hawks get some shine but damn it's hard to feel that wasn't stolen from Kerr.

    phil jackson syndrome -- he inherited a team with curry, thompson and david lee (not so much now, but when kerr signed ...).

    Pop deserves the award even if he's already won it twice.

    They were talking about this during last night's GS-NO game. Atlanta's turnaround seems more dramatic, given that they went from a really bad team last year to being a really good team this year. This is related to foodguy's point, but the fact that GS was already seen as pretty good last year, and that they were expected to do well this year, undoubtedly hurt Kerr.

    Kerr would have won it if he took the Knicks job.

    I think it's been the KIA MVP for a couple of years now. Not sure when it started but this is definitely not the first time.


    Also, should we expect Harden to win the MVP then since Curry has 2 DPoY candidates, CotY candidate and 6thMoY (I really don't agree with Iggy being nominated here but some articles are calling him that for some reason)?

    I believe they get a free Kia Rio with the award or something.
