Hypotheticals give opinions that to some may be valued..but the fact is Cleveland won the series and came back 3-1 from a tough playoff team that came back 3-1 against the thunder.

It's a new season. The more you discredit the Cavs last year makes you look like you lack confidence that your team will win.

All James McAdoo needs is some very short shorts and he'll look like a player that's come straight from the 70's with that hair and headband.

Get with the times, my dude.

Aka "The Harden".

You hoopers all need to go out and try this... I did it last night for the first time and absolutely cheesed the other team 3 times in the second half for 9 free throws, made 7 of them to help my team win. They were super mad at me, and the ref was pissed too, but he had to call the fouls since it was obviously a foul.

Basically you just get a high pick, you wanna run close to your screen man (as you should always be doing on screens). Now when the defender goes over the screen, it's almost guaranteed that:

1. He will have his arms extended from his body, trying to stay connected to your hips. This is just natural defensive insticts and how perimeter defense is supposed to be played.

2. He will be off balance, trying to catch up to you.

Now here is where you just flail up a shot and parade to the FT line for 3 free throws, feeling like an NBA superstar.

Works at all levels of officiated hoops, but not recommended for playground ball since youll get knifed or shot.

AMCMVP looks to have returned to his final form of last year's regular season. And now he has KD as a sidekick.

Goodnight, sweet NBA.

Up 16 with Nurkic. He was a huge problem for Golden State. Throw in Ed Davis and Ezeli. Then again Blazers wouldn't be an 8th seed with a healthy team.

Hate to break it to you, but Nurkic means more to Portland than Durant does to GS.

Durant is absolutely irrelevant on GS

Indeed. Durant joined a 73 win team that won the title the year before that. GS needs Durant like a fish needs a bicycle.

Steph had one of his classic games last night. 37/7/8/2 66%TS on 3 quarters. Might have hit around 50 triple double had the Blazers not gotten bent over. I knew Warriors would win, but I thought it'd be tighter.

It looked like only Dame showed up and fight. Aminu started showing up after the game was completely over though.
