    Now he’s back, sacrificing his career for a first round loss.

    Randomly discovering S2 members in the wild is really fucking cool

    They shot 2.5 times the amount of free-throws than us. Anthony Davis shot more than our entire team combined. What the hell? The Pelicans are already better than us, refs. No need to help them.

    Also, what really pissed me off about this game...With Nurkic getting extended run he was a beast...Why did it take until game 4 to give him extended run?!

    Gonna be honest, didn't bother to watch the game. Was busy with something else, had the chance of watching the game and just decided not to. Checked the box score a couple hours after the game and it looked like the starters brought it but the bench didn't. Also looked like nobody could stop Holiday or Davis given their numbers. Pelicans had the same gameplan that has wrecked us for years now. Trap Dame except this time, the bigs came out on him which made it even more hell for him. Given the unbalanced shitty roster Neil has built us, it just wont work. Their body language after game 2 was telling. It was over. This is worse than the Memphis first round exit. I hope major changes occur and man I hope Dame sticks around. Can't imagine how he feels. I knew our ceiling was the 2nd round but this was just pathetic. I am actually looking forward to the summer to start seeing major changes. Maybe this is what the franchise needed. For Neil to wake his dumb ass up. Meanwhile Utah and Wolves fans getting effort out of their team they deserve. Portland fans didn't even get that. Kawhi is a long shot and I don't even know if he wants out of San Antonio but if he does, you make every effort to go after him in a trade involving CJ.

    1000 x this!
    Can't believe you have to point this out.
    I'm in F&*king disbelief that anyone is even attempting to defend Lillards effort. Holy sh7t!, talk about rose colored glasses.

    This was the most disgraceful effort I've ever seen in professional sports. There was no backbone, no pride, just simply no effort. Lillard was frickin JOGGING around on defense - in the PLAYOFFS!!

    I'm f&$king done supporting that kind of trash effort. He can take his silly mean mugging, crap rap, soft cuck psyche act elsewhere.
    The whole team leadership needs to be nuked starting with Stotts and Lillard.

    Stfu. Dame probably didn't have any more energy left to give considering Stotts was running him into traps at halfcourt every offensive possession. Ignorant ass.

    The pain of losing the series is still hitting me in waves. Anyone else? I still couldn't believe it when I woke up today. What the fuck happened? Also- will this ruin the rest of Dame's career? Everyone knows how to guard him now. What a disaster.

    Not really. The pain of it is gone. It was very stressfull in the moment, now I have let it go for the most part. Hard to see Utah make it to the second round...our last win was against them and they were expected to have a shit year after Hayward got traded and now they are about to be in the second round. They are playing the thunder though. I guess its more embarassing then painful.

    I don't know that its going to destroy Dames career. If Neil doesnt get some help the same thing will happen next year in the playoffs. And the next. It too years if there are no changes Dame will leave to win elsewhere. He will probably want a ring before he retires. Probably won't get it here.
