I'm in first overall on facebook. One of six people out of 190,000. I'd say i'm in pretty good shape

Especially since all of my teams still have a good shot of going where I have them going (chicago has momentum, it would be HUGE if they won in 7). wish me luckkkkk ugh

That was a ****ing intense game, my stomach dropped to the floor when duncan missed his two late free throws, and then jump started when ginobili was up for his... Manu by the way, did incredible tonight, I love watching him when he's on.

Now that the Bulls have the momentum going home, I'm really loving their chances for the upset. Besides, we deserve it. We haven't won a championship in, like, nine years.

I think the Pistons will win the next game and advance to the conference championship. And no matter which team they face, Cavs or Nets, they're going to win.

i was so happy someone flopped on ginobili and they called hit, he isn't the biggest panzy in the league. Flopping on his level is the same as cheating in my mind, overacting on a charge is normal, falling down every chance to try and deceive the refs is dirty.

i also saw the fourth quarter of the cavs nets game....wish i hadn't

I was about to kill Manu when he threw the ball away, i still cant belive Spurs came back, thats why they have 3 championships. Hopefully Fridays game isnt as close so Spurs can get some rest.

And Michael Jordon won it. It wasn't even close, Jordan was throwing up 32 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 5.5 assists in 40 minutes a game. The Suns also had 7 players who were averaging double digit points a game, they had people who could score.

I understand. you think Barkley is worse because he got it over someone clearly more deserving, but I think Dirk is worse because he happened to be the best player on the winningest team in a completely mediocre league.

Thank God the Nets lost. It got pretty rough in the fourth but Lebron and Marshall killed them.

edit: why the hell does Tony Parker get every bloody call? Not only does he travel religiously but he draws the most ridiculous fouls.

Spurs over Suns nice series, too bad for the Suns, and too bad that round wasn't the western final, i doubt the Spurs Jazz match will be as dramatic.


I dont think this was a "tainted" series like everyone is making it out to be, one game shouldnt decide a whole series. When it came down to it, Spurs were the better team and they won, and would have won even if Stoudmire would have played that game. Hands down though this has been the most exiting series of the playoffs this year.

This series blew. It was like Golden State v Dallas lite. The most boring team in the NBA against the most screwed.

I think it had more to do with just the suspension. Did you see the game yesterday? The refs were making the most ridiculous calls, and add in the fact that the Spurs went on a 20-2 run because everything was going in, and yeah the Suns got pretty screwed. Just look at how they came back once Nash finally started getting calls. Bowen was grinding him the whole game.

And I agree, it was the most exciting series. Well, I was pretty into the Raptors one but that's the hometown thing coming into play.

fixed it for you.

Who are you referring to by dirtiest player? Just curious.

The Spurs were hitting a lot of shots early in the fourth though, I'll give them that.

Bruce Bowen. that man gets away with everything on the court.

and you can't even call the stuff he pulls an accident. he's not some gangly, uncoordinated big man who can't control his limbs.

he is the quintessential player who plays dirty to make up for the fact that he has little by way of talent.

I agree with you, then. He takes defence too far. Nearly every time I watched him press Nash it was clear blocking.

grabbing, pushing, throwing an errant forearm, "accidentally" going over the back and smacking someone while trying to block a layup, sticking your feet where someone will land after a jumpshot...these are the things you have to do when you're not good enough to keep up with the premier players in the league.

in a just game of basketball all of these things would be rewarded with a clothesline or an elbow, not by having the ref swallow his whistle and look the other way.

Nash was as upset as I'd ever seen him.

Did you catch the Nets/Cavs game? The fourth was so ridiculous. At one point there were 4 or 5 back to back plays that just had bodies (mostly Jason Kidd) flying wildly.

I caught bits and pieces of it but I never had that series as a top priority. it seemed like the symbolic death of the hopes of Vince Carter ever becoming a superstar.

edit: which probably happened earlier but I haven't been paying attention to him for a while

Vince Carter will never be a superstar [again, I guess]. He's pretty much unlikable in every way. It's a shame because he's got the talent somewhere in there.

he is destined to always light up the scoreboards for lousy teams. consider him this generation's Jeff Malone.

He just has zero worth ethic. NJ fans are starting to see what Raptors fans had to deal with.

let's just say that we will probably never see a "Vince Carter's Greatest Playoff Moments" highlight package.
