IT might be out, not that it matters. This series is a total mismatch thru 2 games. Cavs in 4. They are peaking at the right time. Maybe give GS a tough series. Lebron playing like he is right now is fun to watch. Best all around player in the world and I don't know it's close. He literally dominates both ends of the court for long stretches.


Yeah give me this Lebron for the regular season and I'd tune in for 30 games.

Celtics up by 1. Lebron has had a bad game and C's are taking advantage. We finally have a competitive game!

Cavs played bad D, Lebron was off, abd Smart played out of his mind. I figures the Celtics would play out of their mind without IT, but I don't think it will get them another win in the series.

After how the first 2 games of this series played out and IT being out, last night's Celts win feels... dirty

Of all the sports leagues out there, the NBA is the one I don't trust the most from an integrity standpoint..

Do you really think that was fixed? How? Lebron was just off and therefore we got a good game.

Kind of like Houston's elimination game..

It happens all the time in sports and esecially in basketball. Teams play out of their minds when they lose their star or get blown out. If you watched the game there's no way you can logically say it was rigged. Both teams played really hard. The Cavs were still a much better team. Lebron just had a terrible game. It happens...

What a meaningless fix it would have been.. fixing one game to avoid the sweep? I guess we have no rofl emoji.. :rofl:

Is it enough to dethrone Warriors ?

Nope. GSW should be NBA champs for at least the next 2 years.

Yep. Cleveland would have to make a big signing of someone like George (although he might not fit them) in order to match that firepower.

I think Cleveland is better than you and many others give credit. They are the other super team and it would not be shocking if they beat GS. They have 3 top 15 players, one of the best offensive rebounders in the game, and the cast of Smith, DWill, and Korver are all great complimentary players with Lebron. I know GS has 2 top maybe 5 players and debatably 4 top 20 players, but you can't discount how much better Lebron is than everyone else. When he wants to, no one can stop him.

Cleveland's 51 wins and defensive ineptness was overblown. They don't care about the regular season anymore.

I still like GS in 6, but I wouldn't be shocked to see the Cavs win it.

Agree 100%

I hope Cleveland wins, because I'm a Lebron fan and I see them as the underdog(double whammy).

USC, Cleveland needed the biggest collapse in NBA Finals history to win last year...and that team has now added Kevin Durant. Because of Lebron I'll give the Cavs two games and say GSW in 6. Little to no chance they win though.

They helped with said collapse. Cleveland is much much better than last year. Love is healthy and playing well, Thompson has played the best ball of his career lately, they added 2 legitimate scoring threats and starters on many teams to their bench in Korver and Dwill(who has been playing like his former self recently).

This will be a hard faught series and I said GS in 6, but there is a chance that Cleveland wins. I would bet Cleveland will win game 1, we'll see from there.

I am getting very, VERY close to plotting out and executing the murder of Phil Jackson...

That MOTHERFUCKER...And I thought the Isaiah Thomas years were bad?!?!?...

He (Jackson) should be completely erased from Knicks history, for all time...

The Celtics have offered the Knicks a deal for Kristaps Porzingis that includes their No. 3 pick, an additional lottery pick that they think they can acquire tonight and a player, executives familiar with Boston's offer told ESPN. Obviously, the trade would be contingent on Boston acquiring that pick, which would likely be ahead of the Knicks' No. 8 pick. It is unclear at this point if the Knicks have interest in the trade. Phil Jackson said the club is taking calls on trades for Porzingis.


If true, would you be upset? I mean 2 lottery picks seems like a decent haul. I am not a huge Porzingis fan, but he is their only good player outside of Melo.

edit: 2 picks and a player...

The situation isn't just about the "haul"..it's how Phil has handled EVERYTHING..

Hell, I just read a story where a lottery pick player said that Phil nodded off during his private team workout..

Phil needs to go..

Our owner needs to go..

We become more of a ****ing joke each and every day..

The Knicks haven't been a proud franchise since the 70s really. If they were anywhere but New York they'd be completely irrelevant.

I, too, think Phil is doing a piss poor job up there, but this trade will graded based on who he selects. If you end up with two great players this was a good move. If not it's par for the course.
