Have to agree that the start times are a tad too late and that they should have cranked this series up sooner.

Finally the finals starts tonight. I'm looking forward to this series, but once its over I can't watch pro sports until the fall.

I enjoyed the 1st half. I hate Stuart Scott.

Stuart Scott is a tool.

Great to hear Mark Jackson say Kobe's as good as MJ.

I hate Stuart Scott as much as I love the Chuck/Wade T-Mobile commercials. I actually want to hear why Chuck doesn't eat shrimp.

Good first half.

And, yeah, this broadcasting team might be the best in basketball.

Chuck has never been to Amsterdam. Scott is a tool.

Kobe is not yet as good as MJ, but, he's creeping up on at least making it a legit discussion. 6 titles, 5 MVP's and a 30.1 per game career scoring average is hard to top, though. Jordan remains the best athletic figure of my lifetime, in my opinion.

Mike Breen looks like he brawled with Kimbo Slice before the game.

They are very good. I like Marv Albert a lot, too, though Reggie Miller does nothing for me.

There's no doubt that Kobe's talented, I think he's the most dominant player in the league today. I don't see Kobe surviving a Bulls-Knicks-type series though, or dropping 60 in the Garden with a still Bird-led Celtics (albeit near the end).

That wasn't near the end, though. That was in 1986, when the Celtics were at the top of their game.

Which just makes it that much more impressive...

Jesus, Pierce got hurt by his own man. I hope he's ok.

That was '86? I thought it was around '88/'89 for some reason, my bad.

Like you said, still proves my point.

I think we all agree that Kobe aint Jordan, I'm just saying that it's possible that he enters the conversation. And, if a guy like Mark Jackson believes it, it has validity to me.

You know what's fun? Watching the Come Fly With Me DVD. It's pre-championship Jordan. I think that sometimes we forget that before he started winning titles, the fucking guy was a one man aerial circus.....

Oh, here comes Willis Reed, I mean Paul Pierce.

I remember that playoff game quite well. The Celtics still won, but Jordan was absolutely sick. If I'm correct, those 63 points are still a record.
