yes, all of you hard core hoopsters,it's early, but that time of year again.

i know-the games are meaningless to some, but if you love the NBA,it's been a GREAT summer with lots to look forward to...

so many storylines:

the OKC big three plus Adams?
Will Chris Paul make any difference to the inevitable outcome?
Jimmy,Wiggins & KAT & the Timberwolves?
The Knicks-Porzingis?
Lonzo?
The Cavs-Lebron MVP? Rose,Wade,Green,Crowder,Thomas?
Kyrie?
Celts?
GS will win it all?-(unless some disaster, injury,etc.)-everyone believes they'll repeat.

much more for sure....should be FUN

Yes it would -- still can't stomach him holding out last season, but the idea of him & Aldrich playing at the level they did b4, w/LeBron in a more playmaker, G/F role -- James has gotta like that scenario -- however, Kawhi, a great player, has compromised his credibility in the league, something LeBron -- a gamer thru-and-thru -- would have to consider

Damn straight he is out of work..........and he should be if he is THAT f***ing stupid.

Truth is though, Nick Young means a guy who can come off the bench cold and hit a bunch of 3's for you............likely a guy like that will find a job no matter what stupid-ass thing he says.

NBA owners have an image thing that they have to keep going for their fans. How does the team look to a couple with two kids when one of your players is publicly advocating coke use? I can almost guarantee you that Warriors management will ship him, and soon.

Not the best judgement obviously, but he speaks for more than just himself I'd guess -- hopefully he's not vilified/castigated/heaped w/condemnation while being run out of the league etc

those guys are on the go 24/7 -- like Willie P said in his book, a blast here & there helped him get his work done
-- as a stimulant & a little candy to look forward to occasionally, 4 instance, following a long road trip, or a quick-rip prior to the 2nd game of a back-to-back after a night of travel & very little real rest -- probly the same not just for Nick Young but for Many in the league

in this political anti-climate, Nick might find it hard to get a job now -- hope I'm wrong, but...

I donít want Kawhi anywhere near the Lake Show. His act reminds me of Derrick Rose, who clearly didnít even like playing. Either retire or donít. But to BS your way through sitting around well after becoming healthy is pure nonsense, and unfair to all their teammates who GRIND through that season.

Kawhi Has Decreed "LAKERS"


Fine, but the Lakers would be incredibly stupid to ship out any of their considerable stock of young talent for a guy who missed nearly the entire 2017-18 season with an injury. Article I saw talked about them packaging Kyle Kuzma, Julius Randle maybe another or two for Kawhi. No........No..........NO is all I can say. I hope Magic is not that stupid and I certainly don't think he is. We are talking two guys who can REALLY play in Kuzma and Randle. For someone whose career could possibly be over?

Will this compel LeBron toward them also
Will Lakers president Magic open checkbook for (what would be) 2 landmark contracts

Where would that leave Luke Walton as coach?????????? Spectatin', that's where, & doing the rotations
Don't know what Kawhi's hard-on would've been w/the Spurs, he, LaM Aldrich et al were really good -- but sitting out like he did, bailing on his teammates, now saying how unhappy he is while laughing all the way to the bank...ÖÖ.Kawhi won't be listening to any coach, esp w/LeBron running the show -- he's a great player but I wouldn't want him on my team
They probably wouldn't renew IT either, but it's all hypothetical

you know Ball Sr. would dive into this three-ring circus & be the class clown/straw that stirred the drink --
for "Part II, Redux
Showtime Is Back!!!!"
in the bright glare & glitz of the neon LA lites etc

Great news indeed Rob, & 4-straight this time -- real impressive, nice going GSW --
am really hoping we keep Marcus Smart -- he deserves to be rewarded, he's said he wants to be here & is too crucial to our bench -- but if all hands are on deck etc., it'll be the Celts coming outta the east in the finals next year -- after a 65-win-or-so reg season


Thanks for the congrats Stephen.

Celts were unbelievable this year but they somewhat collapsed against Cleveland. And they did that with two star players (Irving and Hayward) not even available. That was really astonishing. Jayson Tatum is on the rise............next question is............between Irving, Hayward and Tatum..........who is going to be starting next year? Actually we know that Irving will so it's between Hayward and Tatum.
I agree, as long as they can stay healthy, Celts are likely to dominate the East next year. I would love to see a Warriors - Celtics championship series.

Even though I was raised a Lakers fan............it seems something is not right about the NBA when the Celtics suck.


For starters, that is, following the preseason games/early in reg season, Gordon would anchor the second unit (Terry, Marcus S, Aron B., Daniel T), so that he can get his game legs back while playing w/a "2nd team" on a par w/most starting 5's
but anyways, w/Al, Kyrie, Jaylen, Jayson & Marcus M starting
a Very pleasant scenario that plays right into coach Stevens' hands

hopefully Fizdale is the answer for Knicks, dadof2 -- look what happened when Phila improved, they lit up the league, Knicks will too when they turn it around, just like we have over past couple seasons -- all those original franchises have fans everywhere

With Kawhi returning after sitting out last year -- LeBron to Spurs? A great player, Kawhi is now an unknown commodity -- but if he returned to form, he & James would complement each other well & make a challenge to Warriors -- again, ups to Warriors, it's them & everyone else, as they've proven once again

was surprised to read Warriors leaving Oakland for SF next year -- I wonder if they'll once again become the San Francisco Warriors (doubtful) -- paging Rick Barry & Phil Chenier, Nate Thurmond & Al Attles

Congrats to Ron-the future holds good things for the warriors-smart ownership,management,coaches and players...a great organization.

The celts,Stephen,have a bright future as well.

My knicks have an excellent coach and a terrible team...my adopted team over the last 15 years seems to be Lebrons teams....heís a winner,a team player,a mega talent and comes across,for the most part,as a very decent guy.Perhaps as much as his hoops skills his charitable nature and his philanthropy are noteworthy.

Yet,all the negative crap about him over the years,the moronic rants about the refs favoring him when he is clobbered EVERY time he drives to the hoop,all the repetition of this and all the other nasty personal stuff for 15 years...

All in all despite a boring finals(after game 1)this was a very fun season...

Should be an incredible offseason as teams continue to try to figure out how to beat GS!

The Warriors are crazy good--Paul Pierce knows what he is talking about. They'll be the perennial favorites for awhile--

The Celtics are on their way, and we'll see how they mesh next year. I think this is the last year we'll see LeBron for awhile, in the finals. Doesn't matter where he goes, IMO (or stays). Ironic that he mocked the IQ of the Cavaliers and stupidly punched a white board. Also--was his hand truly broken? That part has oddly not been addressed--he inferred it was without saying it was.

Really doesn't matter, Cleveland was totally outclassed. Houston will not get better with LeBron (yes I said that) to the point where they can beat the Warriors. Philly to me remains the most intriguing team because I see them having the most upside, particularly if they pick up a star player not named LeBron

My very brief summary of this NBA season:

1)Cleveland trades one of its super-stars but is never is able to replace him
2)Houston adds a supreme talent but loses him when they need him most
3)The fully-loaded Warriors live up to expectations and take advantage of situations 1 & 2.

Amen.


I would definitely add

4) Boston nearly gets there without its' two best players. Next year.

Congrats to the GSW. I don't think there was ever doubt since the first game of the season but they did it.

The Cavs never stood a chance with or without broken hands. Truth be told - Lebron should never pass on that team. He scores or gets fouled when he drives. Almost everytime. Incredible.

As I said last season, I would have preferred to see if the GSW would have done it without KD - both seasons. But being what it is - see you next season. LOL

Great point and I made exactly that point last night to others at the game-watching party I attended. If Cavs take game one it's a different series but I still doubt they could take GS. After all, Smith didn't freeze in games 2, 3 and 4.

Apparently Lebron played the last three games with a broken right hand (puched a whiteboard after game one)

Just how good is this guy? And if JR Smith doesn't brain freeze who knows

Paul Pierce on The Warriors:

"This is one of the greatest teams we've ever seen. This is one of the five best teams that has ever played the game."

That said.........let's face it........the real NBA Championship this year was the Western Conference Finals, Houston vs. Golden State. Houston came SO close to dethroning my team.

Now where does LeBron go? My bet is the Lakers. Certainly won't be Boston.........they've got Kyrie Irving and we all know what already happened in Cleveland. Houston? I really doubt two dominant players like LeBron and James Harden could ever co-exist. The Lakers have some good young players, but not any one dominant player. Add to that, LeBron already owns two homes in L.A. Lebron surrounded by Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma, Julius Randle et al? Yeah, I can see it. Rumors of Lakers landing Paul George as well.

Yes, and it's nice to see that after 10 years or so in the league the refs are FINALLY getting hip to James Harden..........the forearm shove to clear space, the "run over the defensive player in the lane" move that for years would go his way...........now it's being called on him..........ABOUT time. And by the way, Klay Thompson had THREE fouls last night halfway through the first quarter. And you say the refs were biased against Houston? NO, I'm not saying they weren't fouls, I'm saying your cry of prejudice just does not bear out. Kerr elected to put Thompson back in the game and Thompson was careful not to foul but it was also obvious that it severely limited his defensive game. How could it not?



they can't be too smart as the officials still allow LeBron to truck over people and then say he was fouled

Good points -- blown calls can-and-have unfairly tipped the momentum/balance of a game --
how is it that among such closely-matched teams, most of the games, as dadof2 pointed out, play out like an NBA vs college team --
Houston's no-show in the second half of game 6 was an el foldo I didn't think they had in them, even playing a great GSW team -- which itself had a couple along the way as well -- those Wide point-differentials......

that said, GSW & Cleve have mastered playoffs, proven to be top-o-the-postseason heap for a long time & nice going Rob

am Really looking forward to next year! C's are being Smart w/Marcus, a no-brainer -- he wants to stay, fans love him, they have the $ to do it, he deserves it & is all-but in the fold.....
Phila will also be better, but reverting to the present, yes indeed, it's the finals w/2 grizzled well-experienced hard-nosed warriors once again the last ones standing & eyeball to eyeball
all the best -- & 'wait . . year'
