    Someone made a good point on the radio. He said that since the Dwight Howard trade, the Magic ended up being the first to win a playoff game (between them and Lakers). By the way, Harkless was in that trade.

    Are you for real? NO has surrounded Dame with Hood and Curry and Layman and Collins and Aminu and Harkless and CJ, all of whom play great off of Dame. Blazers would've won 60 games in East too. And we'd be up 40 on the Pistons. Easy.

    Aminu - 10 points
    Harkless - 2 points
    Hood - 5 points
    Curry - 8 points
    Layman - 0 points
    Collins - 2 points

    CJ is the only truly talented player on your list.

    Do you really think those players stack up against Milwaukee's roster?

    Does Casey get fired after the game?

    What a beatdown by the Bucks! :smiley-boxing::rocky::showoff::smiley-chainsaw::smiley-love::showoff::owned:

    You are quoting stats from 1 game. Those guys have all stepped up throughout the season. Harkless had a 26 point game in Los Angeles. Hood scored 21 in a quarter. Layman scored 21 in a quarter. Curry has scored double figures in like 9 of the last 11 games or something like that. He's scored over 20 multiple times. Collins had 18 in a game just last week. These guys have stepped up around Dame all season long. And I'm sure they'd look like All Stars against the Pistons too. I honestly believe Dame's supporting cast is better than that of the Bucks. But I don't think you've watched the team play much this year. You pop in for a game or two, nothing wrong with that. Just listen to the guys who have watched every game.

    This Detroit-Milwaukee series was always going to be a bust, but take away Blake and yikes.

    Luke Kennard is Detroit's best player. Crazy.

    Here’s a thought that occurred to me: Do you think that one reason the Lakers are interested in Monty Williams just might be that he coached Anthony Davis for the first few years of his career in New Orleans?

    He played 75 games this year. Just unlucky with the timing of it. Dude's a Top 12-15 talent right now. Acquiring him for picks and expirings and KD leaving Golden State is our clearest path to actually contending.

    I dunno. Blake has character issues (punching the equipment manager), injury issues (this year's playoffs and 2016), and I'm not sure his game meshes well with a dominant PG. His game depends on being the primary ball handler. Clippers often played better when Chris Paul didn't play and vice versa. That said, I'd say he's a Top 15-20 player.

    I don't want Houston to win but I also think they have best chance to beat GS (maybe Utah does I don't know?). I want Houston or Utah in WCF. I want HCA for the entire playoffs. OKC, Spurs, Utah/Houston, Sixers/Orlando/Boston/Nets

    Fuck off with this shit. You constantly bring it up. Just because I'm not posting in here doesn't mean I'm not watching.

    Ever heard of gatekeeping?

    Constantly bring it up because you keep doing it? What's gatekeeping? Are you saying you do watch every game? It never seems like it.

    Ok fuck it, I'm rooting for Jazz. I hate the Rockets. Hopefully Jazz can beat Warriors.

    Last time we saw Houston in a playoff game, they missed 27 straight threes.

    1. 1.
      the activity of controlling, and usually limiting, general access to something.
      "Wal-Mart's cultural gatekeeping has served to narrow the mainstream for entertainment offerings"
    2. 2.
      COMPUTING
      a function or system that controls access or operations to files, computers, networks, or the like.
      "a gatekeeping mechanism that allows reads under some circumstances and blocks them under others"

      So how does this apply to you? Someone isn't letting you on the internet?
