Draymond Green getting ejected then coming back into the game is a Buffalo Wild Wings commercial in real life

Draymond Green: ""We've got a golden opportunity to go & close this thing out at home."

Draymond Green: "You've got to give them credit, they were very aggressive. But when everyone has 2 fouls, it's hard to match the physicality."

Draymond Green on Technical Foul-Up: "I don't pay that much attention to anybody in Cleveland, honestly. Don't seem to be the sharpest people around."

Draymond Green: "I don't pay attention to people in Cleveland honestly. Don't seem to be the sharpest people."

 


I don't think Draymond deserved either technical foul, and this is not a believable explanation:
 


It was also a very poorly officiated game. Refs completely lost control.
All the above being said......take away refs and I think Cavs still win this one. Hell of a performance from almost all the Cavs!!!
 


And we have more stripes:

Golden State is the better team and I expect them to close it out tomorrow night (Monday) in Oakland. I've never been to Cleveland and have no comparison. My Brother-in-law lives there and loves it......the winters are brutal.

Guys, I'm flying out to Vegas in a couple of hours and I'll be betting Game 5 (and 6 if needed - Thursday) at the sportsbook. SO, I may have some stat updates, but nothing with pictures or anything like this unless we reach a Game 7 next Sunday.

Plus, no offense to anyone who lives in Cleveland, but ... Cleveland is the lamest city in the U.S. Contrary to pop culture narrative, Cleveland does not rock, and is super lame.

Seattle, NYC, Boston, San Francisco, Chicago, Austin, even fucking Portland... these cities rock. Cleveland is exactly like it's depicted on that episode of 30 Rock that's pretty much entirely devoted to making fun of Cleveland.

Basically, Golden State cruised their way to another Championship, losing just one game in the postseason!

Best Record in Single Postseason
2017 Warriors 16-1
2001 Lakers 15-1
1983 76ers 12-1

Warriors have won their fifth NBA Championship in franchise history, including two in the last three years:
 


 


 


The Sports Book at the Mirage was packed Monday night. We arrived in time to watch the 4th Quarter and it was standing room only. The crowd was 90% Warrior fans......Golden State jerseys were 10 for every one Cavs jersey.


Best Odds to Win 2017-18 NBA Title
Warriors 1-2
Cavaliers 3-1
Spurs 12-1

Source: Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook

LeBron James was the first player to lead both teams in points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks in a playoff series of any length.

File this under RIDICULOUS

Phil Jackson worked for the Knicks for 1,200 days. He was paid $60 million for it or $50,000 a day.

Now the Rockets have two point guards and lose their best defender (beverly). Will they move Harden to the shooting guard?

damn, my favourite team will no longer be my team coming season :-(
I loved CP3 and Blake Griffin together, wonder what he will be doing now.

Not only was Beverly the Rockets best defender, Patrick was also the heart of the franchise! Based on ESPN’s Real Plus-Minus, Chris Paul was NBA’s second-most productive player on a per-minute basis last season, behind LeBron James. Speculation by those "in the know" say George Paul will sign with the Rockets once Free Agency starts on July 1st. If this happens, look out because Paul George is one of the best shooters in the league.

Harden greatly increased his number of assist this season which was part of the reason many considered him MVP. Alas, James still resorted to dribbling the clock out and firing it up at the buzzer......if Paul can help prevent that, I'm all for it!

This morning on Houston sports radio, Jeff Van Gundy says forget point guard-shooting guard......this was a good trade!

There was a big headline in Dutch biggest newspaper:

Nederlander ontwerpt nieuw logo NBA



that big it was. Dutchman designs new NBA logo.
Then I check US press, his name is hardly even mentioned. He co-designed the font which is still very cool.

* Bump *

wake up everyone! The play-offs are starting soon! Who's going to win it this year? I'm pretty much clueless, both Cleveland and Golden State are not excelling as they used to this season, and Curry is out for at least the first round. And to be honest I don't know much about the other teams. I used to be a fan of the Clippers, because of CP3 and Griffin, but since they left elsewhere, I have no fav team anymore :-(

I guess I'll be watching out for OKC because of Westbrook's smashing average scores all over this season. He deserves to get far this time

Ive tried to keep up with the Rockets......mostly by way of the radio call via the NBA app on my phone. Also through twitter and Houston sports radio. We currently don’t have cable / DirectTV, so ABC broadcast are the only time I get to watch on TV. I was in attendance two months ago when CP3 & the Rockets best down Golden State.

Tonight my coworker told me the Spurs really put up a fight in Coach Greg Popovich absence due to the death of his wife......but Golden State still won by 12 taking a 3-0 lead. Even with Curry out, I see Golden State sweeping their way to the Western Conference Finals, where they should face the Number One seed Rockets. CP3 & Harden may not be enough for the Rockets to beat Golden State.

Tonight (Friday, April 20) The Indiana Pacers have a great shot at home to go up 2-1 on Cleveland.
Philly & Toronto have a fighters chance in the East if Cleveland makes a First Round exit.
