Cavs beat Celtics. I didn't watch but apparently neither team could score tonight.

I want Boston to win it all for KG, but they still haven't won a game on the road.

to be fair, if the celtics lose game 7 KG deserves to be placed right alongside tracy mcgrady. the only reason he isn't already is probably because people like garnett, myself included. but he's only gotten to the conference finals once in his career, and if he can't get there this year, his legacy is going to take a serious hit.

Much credit to the Jazz tonight for an amazing comeback and making it a real thriller.

But of course the most credit goes to Mr. MVP for putting a stop to the Utah rally with that unbelievable 3-pointer under pressure, and then following it with that insane jumper over two defenders and drawing the foul.

Wow.

I was at a concert last night, so I TiVo'd the game. Maddy texted me during the concert that the Lakers had won. We knew they were up a lot before the first half was over. We got home pretty late & I proceeded to watch the entire first half, and almost passed out. Caught part of the 4th before my eyes sealed shut. Will catch up on the full second half probably later today. What a game!!!

if you're a coach, and you have kevin garnett, ray allen and paul pierce on your team... and you come out in game 7 and the first person to take a shot for your team is kendrick perkins, you should be fired

meanwhile, if you're a coach, and you have lebron james and a bunch of dee de dees on your team, and it's 3 minutes into game 7 and lebron hasn't taken a shot yet, you, too, should be fired

Well, that's what happens when shoe companies start going after a guy when he's pre-pubescent and giving him 90 million bucks before he's ever played a second of basketball on any level other than high school while telling him how amazing he is. [/B][/QUOTE]

oh i agree... shit i have freshman who are egomaniacs because their AAU coaches have been telling them how good they are for years. i can only imagine the level of ass kissery that lebron has gotten over the course of his life.

i would love to go to a clinic on mike brown's offense... just to see how short it would be.

"give the ball to lebron, let him dribble around with no purpose while everyone else stands still. repeat"

ok i'm done posting to myself.

Pretty entertaining game. Paul Peirce really came to play. I'm suprised PJ got those minutes down the stretch and really came up big for the celtics. Lebron did just about all he could they should get him some help in the offseason.

I'm going to pick the pistons in 6.

I try to imagine a world where LeBron has either:

A) A good coach. Not even a great one, just a good one.

B) A good teammate. Someone who is reliable every game. Not saying they are good for 20 points a night, but, wow, LeBron's supporting cast: not one of them, can be counted on to provide the same performance two games in a row. How can you be a legit playoff team when you have no legitimate 2nd scoring option?

I am sure that LeBron's ego is out of whack, etc, but, man, I'd like to see him with a Gasol or Boozer or Garnett/Pierce or Rip Hamilton or David West or Parker/Ginobli or even Rashard Lewis. All of these cats advanced to the 2nd round of the playoffs. I like Big Z and all, but, he's a nice 3rd best player for a legit contender. Anyway, just frustrating to me to see such a gifted playmaker with nobody to throw the ball to.

^some day you will see LeBron with someone...in New York. I predict.

I said it before and I'll say it again. I really like Paul Pierce to have the ball when it matters. And yes...I'll say it again...I like him with the ball even more than I do Garnett.

^ I too have heard little whispers here and there about the possibility of Lebron landing on the Knicks. Personally, I think it would be a good fit. We will have to see and wait, of course.

i don't like paul pierce because i think he historicly takes too many bad shots... but he was great today.

as for lebron... well... i'd still love to see him play on a team that, ya know, runs an offense. but as far as the teammates issue goes... larry hughes was supposed to take the pressure off lebron... then he was traded and wally was supposed to be the guy who would knock down the open shot for lebron...

i know he hasn't had a great #2 yet, but he's had a bunch of "supposed to" guys, and eventually after you have enough "supposed to" guys with you who don't, the finger starts turning around at you.

i do believe it's a product of a terrible offensive system and a coach who lets him do whatever he wants. frankly i think he played his best ball when he was coached under paul silas.

and i know what you're going to say... lebron had 40+ points... he played great. but i disagree... he was great, but he could have been even better. and it's not his fault... there's only so much you can do when your entire offense is built around you dribbling around while everyone else stands still. if they had even a fragment of an offense lebron still could have had his 40+, maybe more, maybe less... but other guys would have had better looks, and cleveland no doubt would have won that game. but hey... what can you expect when you're coached by this guy...





oh... and i absolutely despise the fact that lebron, himself, is comparing his performance today with dominique wilkens vs. larry bird. that is so cocky it's ridiciulous.

I don't have a major problem with LeBron being cocky because I think he backs it up. I do have a problem with him comparing himself to Nique, cos I think he's selling himself short with that comparison. LeBron took a crap team to the finals at age 23. I mean, come on, that's no small feat at such a young age. As for Hughes, he's been a mindless shooter and a me-first guy at every stop. Yeah, he was "supposed" to be a solid #2 for LeBron, but, he clearly was not and I don't really think that's anyone's fault but Hughes'.

On another note, I cannot recall a softer mega-star than KG. He fucking disappears in the 4th quarter just about every time I watch him. When I was living in NYC a lot of people used to rag on John Starks, and a lot of Knick fans think he cost the Knicks Game 7 vs. Houston, but, I always admired his guts. He had no fear of big shots, and Pierce showed no fear today, while Allen rode the pine and KG looked to pass cos he's "unselfish". With the $$$ he makes, he might want to be selfish now and again.
