Nice to see the Bucks show up last night. They got completely out-played in Phoenix, they are definitely better than that - Phoenix couldn't seem to miss at home. Hopefully they got their mojo back and can make a series out of it.
Well, the Bucks pulled it off. It didn't look good after Game 2, Booker & Paul & co were hitting everything and Giannis looked sheepish coming back from that injury. But the Suns' shooting cooled off and Middleton & co woke up. Haven't seen a player take over a finals like Giannis did in a while, maybe since Lebron in Cleveland (even Khawhi had Ibaka and Lowry in Toronto). 50 years is a long time, maybe the Brewers will follow. Technically, as a part-owner, I think Aaron Rodgers will finally get a 2nd ring.
They played great & deserved to win - real happy for you porkchopbob - as he always is Giannis was the difference
they didn’t have a parade when they won in ‘71 - guessing that just Might change this time😄🌎🏀
Congrats to the Bucks. I think Giannis is a GREAT guy and it's great to see a nice guy win it all. He could have fled to a "major market" city and pursued a championship elsewhere. But no, he said from day one "I want to bring a championship to Milwaukee" and he did. Kudos to you, Sir.
Lots of free agent moves but how about Melo going to LA Lakers? Who would have thought 17 years ago these two would be on the same team? Obviously 'Melo ain't the player he was when he was in his prime, but clearly the Lakers are trying to get as much support from LeBron as possible.
Good one PCBob😁 - yeah he awoke from his coma & has signed 11 players 32 or older - next, Rajon Rondo & DeMarcus Cousins😮🏀
will be intriguing indeed to see how this newest Big 3 will do
Nucleus intact, new coach needs big bodies/a little more depth - keep it green Celts
14 years Boston-strong - David Krejci, you will be missed - his reasons do make sense, & there’s only love & respect for this great, talented Bruin & Czech native as he returns home to play over there
Suns give Chris Paul 4 years and $120 million? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? I know he was instrumental in them getting close to a title this year. He also is 36 years old. And this was the first time in memory that he made it through the playoffs without a debilitating injury. And they want to pay him 'till he's 40?? I don't know who Paul's agent is, but if I were an NBA player I'd sure be looking for that agent's phone number NOW.
Certainly makes no sense whatsoever but that’s how it’s done in pro sports - Chris Paul is a great player but this is foolhardy & worse & now Phx won’t be able to afford to pay Booker, Ayton & their younger players
now it’s Kevin Durant
riding the high of Olympic gold, he’s in the heroic limelight right now
….&, w/a lengthy injury history behind him - is about to sign a 4 year $198M extension - past his prime & all
It’s grotesque - Jimmy Butler too - 4 years 184M???? wtf is this BS anyway
i bleed green & love the Celts -
@stephen KD is worth it for the Nets. He's still one of the top 3 players on the planet right now and almost willed the Nets past the Bucks.
The contracts sounds crazy but the salary cap is $112M, which is TWICE what it was 10 years ago ($58M in 2011-12). So the contracts aren't insane, everything has inflated dramatically.
I hear ya on the caps & all that - but he turns 33 next month & he had that ruptured Achilles’ tendon - didn’t see much of the Olympics but saw that he played great
Just don’t understand older athletes getting these incredibly lucrative long-term deals
Unvaccinated Andrew Wiggins cannot play in Warriors home games. If he stands his ground, I find it very interesting if the Warriors will be required to pay him for missed games. Hopefully NOT.
