I mean, fuck the Clippers, but at least it's not another finals featuring LeBron or the Warriors

Brunson and Luka are our only good players. everyone else sucks. I hope they fire half this team into the sun.

I don't think they have the assets for it, but if Portland blows it up, the Mavs should totally get McCollum

Even the fittest individuals will wear out at the end of the game if literally every possession they’re the ones initiating offense for everyone. Luka’s Game 5 where he was responsible for 84% of their entire offense was absolutely absurd and just glossed over. That was the highest number, in any game ever. That’s not sustainable in the slightest and yet he kept them in every game. His conditioning isn’t the issue, their shit roster is.

Maybe if a certain coach didn't bench dudes for eternity if they make one mistake and do that to Jalen Brunson/Tyrell Terry, they might have had other ballhandlers.

i don't think luka wants less usage. he always wants to initiate offense and gets pouty when he's subbed out. he also doesn't offer much off-the-ball movement so it pigeon-holes his role

Yeah, I think some of it is Luka and some of it is coaching for sure. You can't tell me it's not also on Luka though. Dude looked pretty out of shape at the start of the season in particular and fades HARD in the second half of a lot of games. Kawhi regularly had 40+ minute games and was dominant down the stretch of some of these games. Same with pretty much every other superstar.

He noticeably gets worse the longer he stays in and it doesn't help that he tries to do everything on top of that.

Tom Thibodeau wins coach of the year. Surprising. Thought Monty had it on lockdown.

But, if you look at the turnaround the Knicks made this year it was pretty clearly Thibs had a massive impact on that change. They definitely overperformed based on the talent they had.

I don't have a problem with Thibs winning, the Suns are twice as talented as that Knicks team was.

Idk, a 4 seed in a weaker conference and first round exit vs being the 2 seed in a strong west. I guess I see that point but still

Also, omg KD just made Giannis dance. He might absolutely go off tonight

Khris Middleton looks like he completely forgot how to play basketball, what the fuck.

I hate teams sometimes. Like, I get it Bucks, you were a solid shooting three point team in the regular season but it's clearly not working and the Nets cannot stop you in the paint with Griffin and KD on defense. Just go bully the shit out of them in the paint and maybe you'll get some better open threes.

Or whatever, just keep jacking up threes even though they aren't hitting.

I, for one, very much enjoyed that first half of basketball and hope it continues

Theyre hitting at a league average rate in the first half, it hasnt been that bad, theyve been less efficient from a points per shot standpoint with their 2s than their 3s.

Brooklyn is just running them out of the gym

I'm sad the Nets were so desperate they had to go out and trade for Harden because we knew we can't win with just Kyrie & KD

Series isn't over, turd. Bucks are just playing horrible and your supporting cast is playing out of their mind.
