Re: NBA/WNBA Thread

Don't get me wrong, BA, I have nothing but respect, love, and admiration for LBJ. I seriously hope he goes down in history as the best player of his era, if not all-time (didn't hurt his case passing MJ in career total postseason points). I'm thrilled that he's headed to The Finals for the seventh straight season (the only non-Celtic ever to do that). The only way I could love him more is if he came to play for the Knicks. I've got nothing against anybody on the Cavs, and there are a couple HOF vet players there that i'd love to see earn a championship before they retire.

Furthermore, i'm not a big fan of the idea of just buying up another All-Star, top 5 player, the year after you break the record for wins in a season. Unless it's the Yankees doing it.

I may not expect Cleveland to win, but i'll be rooting for them all the way. Sorry, Liz!

Please consider doing at least some of your holiday shopping through our astore this year.

Re: NBA/WNBA Thread

I have no quarrel with your prediction as a prediction. I think it'll go 7 because of the rivalry. However while I hope the Cavs will win I won't predict that they will. As with last season we might see things come down to five minutes of weirdness. I'll be a chicken and wait for the series. Even then a 3-1 lead might not once more be safe.

Come on, man. We can't buy one guy? ONE? All of our other key players were drafted and home-grown and a successful system was built, leading to wins. It's not like we went around buying up all of the talent in the league. KD is a perfect fit for the Dubs, and fixes the issues that management knew were coming up with Harrison Barnes, Bogut, and Ezeli.

That's ok. You know what they say, it's lonely at the top.

Re: NBA/WNBA Thread

Aw, i'm not really hatin', just talking some trash. I know Golden State was great when I was in diapers, but after 40ish years of cellar-dwelling, I don't begrudge them some success, and I personally think it's good for the Association that middle market teams are on top right now.

In all honesty, I like both teams (but LBJ definitely has me rooting for Cleveland), love the rivalry, and expect to enjoy the shit out of every minute of this series that I get to watch.

I think it's great for the game that the Lakers were terrible this year, and that Toronto was good. I hope the Pelicans build a good team around Anthony Davis. I mean, REALLY I want to see the Knicks get their shit together, but failing that, I think the game is better than ever and it's good to see how quickly the power can shift around the Association. The globalization of the game has brought such a concentration of amazing talent, every year the NBA seems to get stronger and stronger. The down side is seeing guys like Nate Robinson and Allen Iverson going overseas, but I think overall it's worth it.
