    How quickly one game forced a 180 out of me. I thought the rockets would take this to 7. Now I will be surprised if they win one game.
    Crazy how good GSW is.

    As much as I wish GS would not be rewarded for Durant stacking their team and making a travshamockery of the whole pretense of this season, and as much as I loathe Draymond "Another Kick to the Groin" Green, I cannot and will not under any circumstances wish any success for El Floppo and especially not for C-you-in-hell-P3. Screw those two. After the Whoriers dispose of the Rockettes, I'll be rooting for whoever they play in the finals.

    I have zero interest in the Houston v GS series to be honest. I don’t like either team. I thought I would be cheering Rockets because of how much I dislike Warriors but I just can’t.

    I am torn in the other series. On one hand I prefer Celtics as a team, they are a very likeable unit, amazing Brad Stevens and a great underdog story behind their recent playoffs success. However I am convinced they have no chance against whoever wins West in the finals while Cleveland will have a small chance because of LeBron. On the other hand maybe great coaching would give Celtics the edge.

    I know for sure I will support the Eastern team in the Finals.

    One could also argue he's responsible for the donkey's development.

    On two sides of the trade it's extremely simple. Phili gets rid of Bayless for cash, and Atlanta trades Plumlee and Bembry for Turner and a pick. When I make trades, I come up with trades that I think all teams should do, or might do in a vacuum. None of these trade ideas are likely to happen, so instead of looking at it like that, tell me which team you think wouldnt do this trade.

    I honestly think there'd be a chance he'd leave for us. He grew up here. If we had his best friend that he grew up with here as well, I think we'd have a chance. It's be a great story and I feel like he may grow tired of being in the other players shadows. Not likely, but we'd have a chance.

    Well it certainly has as much (or more) validity as most other trade ideas so why not?
    I'd love to see that happen. I think Love would do well here. Getting Klay would be a huge boost.

    I’m starting to think Boston will win. Rozier is a terrific point guard.

    I think Horford is the best player of the playoffs.

    The Cavs are in big trouble.
