that was a great ending that that game.
that lob at the end was absolutely highlight material.

I feel this series is over if CP3 comes back next game in LA.

Holy ****, that ending! No goaltending on an inbound pass. This fourth quarter was so good.

Paul George is about to get wrecked on social media.

The social media slander has been my favorite part of the playoffs. Top-quality tweets abound.
TVman is dead. I killed him and took his posts.

So, Giannis has no structural damage from his hyper extension, but no telling if he plays tomorrow
Trae Young might still be out with an ankle sprain from stepping on the refs foot....

East coming down to "Survival of the Fittest" and who can recover fastest.

Suns the only team to not have a major player injured?

CP3’s case of Covid was the worst of it, I think. Which makes then the lucky ones.

So Giannis got his ring. Stepped up BIG TIME.
Cleaned up that free throw issue, and pulled some extra moves out the bag to secure the ring.

Finals MVP indeed.
Congrats!!!!

Well, it's a shame that the Suns that didn't win their Championship, but congrats to the Bucks for proving a lot of people wrong in a fucking weird year of basketball.

Giannis was incredible coming off that injury.  Reports say he went to Chick-fil-A and ordered exactly 50 nuggets.

No one posted in this thread for two months?

Even I can’t defend Ben Simmons. Go to work, dude. The Sixers did everything they could help him succeed though maybe babied him too much. He no shows in the playoffs and now is refusing to show up to training camp. What is happening? This is like bizarro world or Rand McNally, where they wear hats on their feet and hamburgers eat people.

Andrew Wiggins refuses to get vaccinated which means he can’t play any home games for the Warriors as local jurisdiction requires vaccination for large indoor events. He said he won’t get vaccinated unless “forced to”. The Warriors had him speak to an expert and Wiggins was still unmoved. Bruh.

Majority owner of the Warriors, Joe Lacob was fined $50,000 for essentially saying (off the record) they don’t need Ben Simmons and questioning his fit on the roster (in a potential trade). That’s like the opposite of tampering unless they simply can’t talk about other teams’ players entirely in any context.

Apparently, Carlos Boozer is the last Jazz player to record a triple double… back in 2008. Triple doubles aren’t easy per se, but 13 years? What are y’all even doing out there in the Beehive State?

Stephen A. Smith got Max Kellerman booted from First Take.

NBA is in shambles.

I thought Max Kellerman left First Take to go do coordinated dance videos on TikTok/IG Reels?

and Ben Simmons is gonna find himself broke and out of a job for violation of contract after being fined to death. If he really wanted to show his worth, I agree with what I heard on the radio in that he should have played for his country in the Olympics and display how he CAN shoot, and no longer afraid to show how he developed that part of his game on the court in an In-Game situation.

Wiggins might find himself traded if he can't play home games. **** Around and find yourself Simmons'd soon bro. But something tells me he end up taking it after missing a few home games and getting side-eyed by teammates as he watches one or more of them start taking his play time in the away games too.

If the Sixers can stomach the distraction, they have leverage. They shouldn’t want Simmons with the team or on the court if he’s going to be a **** while he’s there, and they shouldn’t accept a bad trade either. The Sixers will lose every trade unless they land Damian Lillard, but they don’t have to accept pennies on the dollar. Simmons can sit out as long as he wants, but sitting out an entire year doesn’t count as a year of his contract. It falls under “failing to render services” so he would still have four years on his contract while also getting fined into oblivion.

As for Wiggins, I question who is willing to trade for his contract and the current reality of him automatically missing games because he won’t be allowed in an arena.

Wiggins will give in.

His value was already low (by comparison) to begin with, and watching someone from the bench take his playtime while he loses (now and future) money will right his ship long before it gets off course.

LOL. Wiggins tried to get a religious exemption which the NBA promptly shut down and denied. I agree; he’s going to get the vaccine at some point. He’s being such a wang about it right now though.

Unrelated: a local Salt Lake City reporter stopped Jordan Clarkson on the street (without knowing who he was) for an impromptu interview. She asked him to spell his name then asked if he went to any Jazz games. Clarkson replied, “Yeah, a lot.” In her defense, she’s taking it pretty well. This is my favorite NBA story of the off-season.

Wiggins on how he don't know if he's gonna get Vaxx'd

I'm pretty sure you don't get paid for all the games you ("voluntarily") don't play in....


and here is Steph politely telling him that BULLSHIT
https://twitter.com/ESPNNBA/status/1442641773378088963?s=20


I hope they just bench him for the damn home games too. Can't keep fucking up the chemistry switching out a rotation that may be working.

Got a ticket for the Suns and Lakers game on the 6th.  I am in the lower deck  just to the right of the basket on the west side of the court.
Maxi is dead. I killed him and took his posts and changed genders.
Alexis, she/her/Miss
