    Are you sure it wasn't because they felt that Brown would not re-sign without Dame on the team?

    Brown is a rare case of a player and a team sticking with each other long enough for the player to go from disappointment-verging-on-bust to STAR.

    Smiling if Oshae (not Olshey) Brisset and Neemias Queta get a ring just because they have great names.
    Appreciating Jordon Walsh and Derrick White's haircuts. :clap:

    ....just have to ignore the uniforms which is made easier by consoling myself that if the Mavs won, I would have to put up with Cuban insanity.

    ^ Don't forget the Kornet Contest, arguably the most brilliant means of a barely-role player making a name for himself.

    the casinos gave Dallas the 2 point favorites for game 3. The Mavs gotta shoot the ball better. 25% from distance & 65% FT isn't going to beat Boston.

    I think you're mixing up Rebekah Mercer and Miriam Adelson, both of whom are horrific, but only one of whom is an NBA owner:

    the spread jumped to 4 points right before tipoff. Dallas up 9-2 right out the gate. Coach Mazzulla calls timeout to fix the Celtics issues.

    Kyrie finally hit a triple. Irving was 0-8 in the first 2 games.

    Mavs lead shrinking... Coach Kidd has the answers, so he calls a timeout.

    Teams are averaging 35 3pt attemps per game.
    I think Boston has already 11 more attempts this game.

    Jaylen Brown is a 3 & D & D player.

    3's, Defense, and Dunks

    He's 6'6" with long arms. Every once in a while he'll get a no jump block
