True for me for most of the regular season, yes...........also for the first round of the playoffs. It's hard for me to get interested at all in such a ridiculous matchup like Warriors - Clippers.

After that, you couldn't tear me away. Likely we will get Warriors - Rockets in the second round. If you're not interested in watching THAT then you have no business watching basketball at all. IMO that's the NBA championship right there. And if Chris Paul hadn't got hurt last year, Houston may have just taken the Warriors out. Both teams have reloaded and added players so to say this will be interesting is a huge understatement. Warriors in six but don't be surprised if it goes seven..........

Agreed porkchopbob, the first round should be 5 games only.

That being said, I'd much rather watch the pros than college. It's more interesting for me to watch the highest level of play, like the Golden State Warriors, or the Bulls when they had Jordan, or the Lakers with Kobe, Pop's Spurs under Duncan and Parker, the Heat with LeBron and Wade, Mavericks with Dirk in his prime. Those are 5-star well-oiled machines that were increcible to witness. I like college ball, and the Tournament is always amazing, but at the end of the day, the amateur level ball and the msitakes made by these inexperienced teenagers always prevented me from taking it as seriousely as i do the NBA.


I guess to each his own. I like pro ball, but just enjoy the college game more. It seems to be more team ball vs the head cases ,divas, a drama ,me first ,of the NBA. It slowly has been turning me off more and more. I might sound like old man get of my lawn, but I am.probably younger than most on here. Oh well it's just my values.
NBA players make mistakes too, and I think all of those teams playing in the NCAA tourney were taking it pretty seriuosly. This year's probab!y was one of the best and most exciting. If one can't appreciate that, I don't know what to tell you.

Garden Edwards from Purdue had a phenomenal run. No one put up numbers like he did since Steph Curry.
That guy was a beast. 26,42,29,42 points in four games is not to shabby.

I follow the Pacers, and they play Boston in the first round. Not sure they will win, but we will see.They don't have the man power that the Celts have. The only way is if they come out and steal a couple and the mental stability of Kyrie and that team comes loose, they might have a chance. I feel for Brad Stevens having to deal with that . He is a very good coach and having to manage KE and the stuff that comes with is painful. Far from his fault If they don't win.

Yeah Brendan, Clippers sure did make me eat my words last night!

I admit, after Warriors were up by 31 I had the game on in the background.............messing on my computer, even took a shower. When I got out of the shower I saw the lead was only 14. My buddy texted me: "Getting nervous?" I said, "No, this is typical. Great team builds a huge lead, other team shoots their wad making a comeback but can't get closer than 10 or 12 points." And of course that IS what usually happens. Not last night though.

Huge win for the entire Clippers organization. Obviously that young team believes in themselves and does NOT know the meaning of QUIT. Give Doc Rivers a ton of credit here. Lou Williams was just unstoppable, seemed he could score from anywhere. He had 36 for L.A.

Beware however of waking the sleeping Giant...........

Order restored..........the real Warriors showed up last night for 48 minutes, not for 24 like Monday. Clippers will not even come close to winning another game in this series. The Giant is wide awake.....

Well, the Bucks won their first playoff series since 2001 when they were a game away from getting to lose to the Lakers in the Finals. Pretty nice sweep of Detroit after actually being behind in the 3rd quarter only to trounce the Pistons in the 4th.

Next up is Boston, who the Bucks lost to in 7 games last postseason. But the Bucks are much better this season, and the Celtics are a little less good than they were last season. Should be a good series, but this Bucks team is playing lights out right now.

I am a Brad Stevens fan, but I hope the Bucks take them. If that happens, Kyrie will through a fit, blame the coach(undeservedly so), and demand a trade.

A heavy heart tonite at the news of the passing of John Havlicesk
Jarrin' John -- the guy was nothing but tops -- he could run all day
little piece of youth cut away with this sad news
RIP Hondo -- keep on running

I'm in shock right now is about all I can say. Give the Clippers some credit they are sure showing something to the world especially Lou Williams. Warriors had an off shooting night and they are vulnerable when that happens. But we are still up 3-2. I'll be glued to the tube tonight and I think Warriors will seal the deal. Sure don't need no game 7.

RIP JOHN HAVLICEK. That guy could run and run and run.........old enough here to remember him well as a kid in LA.......and watched him frustrate the Lakers way too many times.

John Havlicek. The game was better when he played. He was tireless out there. One of the greatest of all time. He was part of two different periods of Celtic championships. I think he won championships in 7 out of his first 8 years.
After Bird, Hondo is my second favorite basketball player of all time.
RIP

Kevin Durant goes off for 50.........pesky Clippers are gone. Loved the post game press conference with Patrick Beverly and Lou Williams of LA. " Is there anything you wish you could have done to stop Kevin Durant?" Beverly: "What do YOU think? Did YOU ever play basketball? I'm serious. He's Kevin Durant."
Oh My God that gave me a chuckle. What a stupid question!

In my opinion the NBA Finals start tomorrow, Golden State vs Houston.

That 1st half by KD was just short of unreal! Course if Sweet Lou could have hit a shot that would have helped.

That Rockets series should be epic. But I am very excited about the Celts and Bucks as well. Toronto and Philly should be a great series as well.

I like Portland, not sure they can take GS or Houston though. And in the East, Milwaukee is going to have to show me a LOT more than they did today............Boston was dominant in every phase of the game. Bucks could really be in trouble based on today. If it was a 2 point loss, that's one thing............it was an embarrassment.

Celtics looked very good yesterday. I think this might be the team we thought they would be. Time will tell.
on another note, Hubie Brown is very good.

I'd chalk it up to the Bucks being soft in Game 1 after knocking around an 8 seed. Bucks looked great last night. I imagine the rest of the games will be closer than the first 2.

We'll see which Celtic team show's up tonight. They need something from Tatum and Haywood.
Go Celt's!

Bucks will bring it on the road. Irving disappeared in Game 2, that likely won't happen at home. Brogdon is out for Milwaukee but Middleton is turning it on. Should be a good game!

Disappointing loss for the Celtics last night. I thought for sure last night would be a win. No answer for Giannis though. Irving went 8 for 22 from the field. Not going to win that way. Need more from Haywood. Game four at home , it's now or never for this year's Celtics.

Bucks pulled ahead nicely down the stretch. Nice win on the road for them, hope they keep rolling.

How about the Blazers-Nugs 4OT game? Are they trying to remind us all that they are still playing?
