    Tonight it seems like Hibbert has been boffing George's bitch.

    Great playoff series this year.

    Steven Adams is a genius. Seriously. He's going to get Blake or deandre ejected this series

    He just pisses people off. Little shoves and annoying grabs here and there where the referees can't see. Seriously dude is so smart

    He's also a really good defender. He's going to be awesome in a few years if he can develop a good junpshot

    He does it again on Blake. Just astounding

    I sorta just thought it was because he's big and strong and the types of guys who he pisses off are used to people just getting out of their way.

    He shoves just at the right time. I wonder if he trash talks a lot cuz everybody not on his team seems to hate him. He doesn't seem to jaw at all tho. His role is to foul at the right time

    He's probably a big reason why okc is in the second round. That shove on randolph was pure genius

    Adams and Griffin are basically trolling each other. they both have these things where they instigate and then stand back when the other guy loses his temper. Clippers will always lose that game though because of the stakes.

    i'm waiting for Adams to have a run in with Matt Barnes, though. that would be entertaining

    I don't see cp3 doing it as much. In the season Bogut was Jedi master. It's like not only does he know where the ball and all other 9 guys are he knows where the referees are and what angle they're looking at him from. So much footage of him holding on to arms and grabbing and shit like that. It's amazing he doesn't called much for it

    yeah, kerr was going on about him last night, but i don't see it. he seems like a moderately talented troll. those things usually don't last.

    Adams should hire Bogut as a coach this summer and work on his game

    what CP3 does is even more sneaky. he's super physical and also one of the leagues most notorious floppers when touched. On top of that? he's constantly bitching to the refs the whole time too. He's really turning into Isaiah Thomas 2.0 when it comes to that.

    it seems dishonest and very un-American, but the soccer flopping style is undeniably effective hence its being almost universally co-opted by superstars now (Lebron and Harden being the other champions of flopping). Lebron is annoying because he sells the fouls at really wrong times, Harden sells the foul but always does it in times where contact is undeniable because he sets the defender up.

    CP3 just seems to flop around and bitch at the instant of contact. :lol: And you know he's faking it because by the time its gets to crunch time, CP3 suddenly gets tough and will take (and make shots) with a lot of contact and get right back on defense (because flopping and bitching about contact is detrimental time/defensively-wise).

    that being said CP3 is truly a HOF talent and is the key to the clippers getting to the finals. if he can rattle and annoy westbrook enough to cause trouble. westbrook had a phenomenal game last night, but can be tricked into a 5/24 shot night by CP3 through sheer will and annoyance.

    Game 1 was an abberation and so was last night. Clips played above themselves in the first game and OKC could do little wrong in the second. i think this is going to be a really great series.

    Yeah they have a great team and Jackson was just not a good fit. With the right coach Dubs will be even better.

    Russy really got a triple-double last night? Put a giant * next to that on the records books.

    Not even hating on Russ but did you see that final assist? Barkely and Shaq were clowning him and they are declaring a few more assist added to their careers. :lol:
