  1. Past hour
  2. lol...would have been brutal.
  3. Cavs win at least one game...they could even win 4. Those 73 TO's in 4 games against the Spurs were a bit alarming.
  4. Today
  5. I don't even think it gets to the 6. All of the warning signs are there for Cleveland, but we love to ignore that in sports and focus on the outliers . Hey, I've been wrong about the competitiveness of this series before 2 years in a row, but revenge is a real factor in this series as well. The 2014 Spurs have talked about how the '13 Finals lead to them reaching heights, they themselves thought they could never reach. I think the Warriors complete the 4-4-4-4 and cement the status as the greatest team in league history and the beginning of the league's next great dynasty, ala Show time Lakers, MJ Bulls. Finals MVP: Curry and he finally takes the throne that we all thought he did last year. Maybe that will be whats ends the diminishing of what GS does? As people clown GS and complain that they've been a greater beneficiary of any team in history, they lose sight of just how special their 3 year run has been.
  6. Hell yea, if it was more sturdier I'd def get myself one, but those are too flimsy and I'm a clutz with the phone so I can't afford to have it in a slim hard case
  7. I can see the Warriors having a slight edge in winning the series because of HCA, but we all know that can change in the blink of an eye. To me Cleveland is the defending champion so in my mind Golden State is the underdog trying to regain the championship. I'm hoping all players stay healthy and both teams play well and the series goes 7 games.
  8. Zero. Bulls were favored in 6 of 6. The myth says that's due to Jordan's dominance. The reality is that the Finals competition was weak in the Expansion NBA 90's. Remember, they played the Lakers without Pat Riley and Kareem-not really the Lakers we remember... The Blazers, who last won in 1977. The Sonics (Thunder), who last won in 1979. And the most competitive series' were with the Suns and Jazz, both of which have never won a championship in franchise history. Not a lot of competition there...Individual, or team... In James trips, I assume they're saying the Heat were favored versus Dallas and OKC. But even then, those teams had 1 more win in one case and one more loss in the other compared to James teams in the regular season. They were also deeper teams. OKC had a guy few would know would become an historic player coming off the bench in Harden. And Dallas had 7 players in the top 100 that season while Miami had 3, so it's possible they were also the underdogs in that series that has gotten so much scrutiny over the years. Maybe the other Finals they were favored in was during the Miami 66 win 2013 championship season. So this is an inconvenient fact the aggravates the Jordan mythology. But in the current, the way it manifests itself is people putting undue pressure on James to win and play great every single time he steps on the court or be criticized incessantly. And he has to beat the teams that Vegas and all the experts said he couldn't. Need a public psychiatrist to figure out the real reasons why...
  9. Rare miss.

  14. Mailbag question to Tom D'Angelo -- May 26, 2017: The Miami Heat have a lot of decisions to make when free agency starts July 1. One of those is how much they will invest to try and bring back both James Johnson and Dion Waiters. The Heat and both players have expressed a desire to return. Then what? What kind of money will be available to added another player or two? From @OS_KeepinItReal: If the Heat re-sign James Johnson and Dion Waiters, what is left to sign another good player? Listening to Pat Riley when he addressed the media following the season, it is clear he would love bring back both players. On Johnson: “What James Johnson showed was another playmaker, a guy that could do a lot more than anybody ever thought he could do and he can get better.” On Waiters: “Dion can create off the dribble and create space and get to areas of the court where you can get up shots in late clock situations. He’s going to become a better finisher, higher percentage as a finisher because he goes to the rack all the time.” So let’s assume both return. The question then is at what price? The guess is both could come back for $25 to $30 million. I think $25 is a little low but $30 is the max the Heat want to spend on both. Considering Miami will have around $38 million of cap space (that is without bringing back Wayne Ellington at his $6 million number) that still leaves interesting possibilities. With $11-12 million remaining the Heat still could sign a very good rotational player and bring back Ellington on a new deal for say $12 million for three years. They probably would need another big man so possibly someone like Luc Mbah a Moute or Taj Gibson or Patrick Patterson. If they lose Ellington, perhaps they would pursue another guard. How good a story would it be if Tim Hardaway Jr. signed with the Heat? But even if the number is somewhere around $8 million, the Heat should add a nice rotational player.
  15. Work, work, work...get in better shape! #HeatCulture

  20. Dang. Just goes to show you how stacked NBA teams are nowadays. The best player in the world has been an underdog in the finals 75% of the time. How many times was an Jordan underdog?
