    Kicked balls can't get reviewed? That should go in the replay rule change ideas.

    The goofed up "Knicks cheat" call really did look like a kicked ball. It was like a soccer shot, and a defender accidently hit the ball with his hand. Legal on the pitch if you're arms are tucked in, and/or protecting a sensitive area.

    Two controversial calls at the end of a very close game and SOMEHOW, both go in favor of the large TV market team. I've seen this movie before.....over and over again.

    Perhaps they need more money up front?

    Jose Alvarado and his Pelicans pancake may have altered the destiny of the WCF. The Mavs look a step slower against the well rested Thunder team.

    SGA 29/9/9

    in the playoffs

    we need Shaedon to get healthy
    and:
    learn defense
    find an innovative coach
    maybe a new owner
    trade some vets
    pick more top 5 guys over the course of who knows how long it might take.

    No pressure

    Probably simpler to just list the NBA franchises we have a more talented roster than....

    So there's Washington

    The end

    I'm rooting for the Wolves, very fun team to watch and how can you not be happy for that fanbase.

    It's super cool that we see Minnesota, OKC, Knicks, Pacers all playing for the conference finals and the glamor LA/GS/Miami/Phx/etc markets were in the lottery or bounced in the first round.

    Yeah I know the Knicks are in the #1 market but they almost seem like a small market team in how little success they've had, not having a traditional superstar, and how beat down that fanbase has been. Super fun team to watch as well.
