    I know, it's hard to explain right? Yannick was a good looking guy and his mom was a beauty queen

    :happy: hehe... that the woman was captured in that moment, however.. maybe it's just me but you can just tell how ignorant and self-absorbed those two are. I bet that guy she's with is a real piece of work. do you think he wonders about getting murdered? :lol:

    Its pretty obvious this stuff is coming straight from Thibideau.

    You can believe one of two stories:

    1. A veteran player known for his calm demeanor decided, for no apparent game reason, to wrap up an opponent at mid court and, then, was so enraged when the intentional foul got shook off that he had a "blackout" and attacked the opponent, getting ejected for only the second time in his 15 year career.

    2. A dirty coach sent the most expendable guy in his rotation to start a fight with the least expendable guy on the other team.

    Mohammed should get a lifetime ban or, equivalently, a two game suspension.

    Even w/o Westbrook, Durant becomes frustrated and they go on runs w/o him touching the ball, I am not sure Westbrook is really the on to blame at this point.

    Ibaka & Martin needs to step up with RW out, this is where they really miss Harden, Martin did well in game 1 and that one was barely a win.

    Yeah, and two of those seasons came right before the 1987 and 1997 drafts and they won the lottery both times. I'm sure in the next couple of years another transcendent center will come along just in time for Tim Duncan goes down with a season ending injury in mid-December and the Spurs finish 30-52, defy the odds, and win the first pick in the draft...AGAIN.


    Slow your roll, son. Nobody is getting a lifetime ban for shoving somebody in the playoffs. Now if he had shoved him while wearing a clearly visible gold chain and sweat pants, that's a whole other story. As a white person, I find this very intimidating and fully support any lifetime ban associated with such activity.

    Knicks are breaking my heart, I feel like i'm being reminded of what it's like to truly be a Knick fan.

    they did seem to give up around the 5 minute mark. down 13 and no sense of urgency. Amare looked pretty good though, maybe he contributes later this series

    Hibbert (another fine Georgetown product) was the difference. surprised the Knicks didn't try to get him in foul trouble, which is his biggest weakness

    Unfortunately the knicks relied on the 3 all season and it shows in the playoffs when the typical players who make those shots aren't making any. When melo isn't hot, the other guys haven't been able to step it up this round. JR should never have received that 6-man trophy, so he would stay focused rather than go to meatpacking with Rihanna. Also it wouldn't hur if these guys could grab a board here and there. This team needs more obvious leadership on the floor, and despite my avatar, Amare is useless and past his prime, that said his contract has our hands tied

    I'm surprised you say this. They're not a good playoff team, reason below.




    I had him all fantasy season, what a dog until about 2/3 thru. Hibbert is too awkward to be elite but can deliver occasionally. I'm surprised he did it against Chandler who stuffed him all season. Hibbert picks up fouls the way hookers pick up aids. Credit him, he balled yesterday. Ugly ass game.





    Exactly. You can only win 3 ball when they fall above a certain %. In the playoffs, clear shots are hard to come by and the % goes down. They've got enough talent to adjust their style but this unit just isn't that great of a team in general. Lest anyone believe you can win a championship with Carmelo, save your tissues.

    Smith won 6th man because of his late season form. People call him streaky? Nah, he's just got a shit attitude and takes games off.

    Dubs! Came out playing really terribly, as usual, and JJ saves us in the 4th!

    Screw Jalen and Magic, counting out the Dubs at halftime and saying there wouldn't be any more games left to play in Oakland. Didn't even own up to it after the game.
