    If its true, Rose has been cleared to play since March? I'm not sure how he can look his teammates in the face. Yeah, I get it, everyone heals differently, but doubts creeping in. Has to be.

    They discussed it during the game. His teammates are all behind him 100%. He wouldn't be out there being a cheerleader on the bench if he didn't have the support of all of his coaches and teammates.

    I'll give him the benefit of the doubt because of how competitive he is on the court. There's no reason IMO he would leave his team hanging if he was fully capable of performing at his highest level.

  • I think Memphis and Golden State both move on to the next round. In the east I think it will be Miami and Indiana.

    Still don't see anybody that can even come close to beating Miami in a 7 game series.

    Saw this amazing stat couple weeks ago...Through their first 250 games of their career or so, Curry's made over twice as many 3's as Reggie and Ray Allen.

    I've watched this on loop for the past hour, guys ballin out of his mind.

  • Word! Thanks for that, GCrow.

    I remember watching him at Davidson. What's weird is exceptional and perfect shooters, like Curry, Miller, Allen look odd to me. Someone that great at it, tricks me into thinking they look unusual. When, actually, their technique's so great, that's what tricks my mind.

  • It's also amazing how they need so little space to rise and fire. Curry has the ability to attack off the dribble as well. Often with great shooters, they have favorite spots(the wing for Reggie, the corner for Ray and three feet off the top of the key for Curry) and teams eventually learn to keep them off their spots, or try at least. The tough thing about Curry is that he offers a little hesitation, like he's about to rise and fire, the defender closes(often off balance because no one knows how to close out anymore), and he speeds right by them and hits that floater, kicks it out or does some insanely creative layup at the rim. He gets compared to other great shooters, but I think he's more than that.

    That is categorically incorrect. If not for a collapse in the 4th quarter last night, the dubs would have won comfortably. I still think the Spurs win, but they are by no means 'too good to lose'. Warriors could easily win 4 out of the remaining six.

    Oh, fo show!

    I dont get Carmelo. I watched his entire tourney run at Syracuse, and in NO WAY did he look to be a selfish player. He looked like a typical NBA super-superstar, the type obsessed with winning. He gets to the association, and, he becomes a ball-hog who could give a frick if any teammate of his scores or gets involved.

    Amazing....

  • This Thunder/Griz series is going to 7, with a couple of OT games in there for sure. Fascinating series, and KD is on another planet at times.

    I'm interested to see if the Bulls can follow up Monday's unexpected success. I love that team right now, and Thibideau is a fantastic coach for being able to have a cobbled-together makeshift team play like that. top 5 coaches in the league, in no particular order: Thibs, Hollins, Pop, Karl, Rivers. Any disagreements on that?

    That was just a really stupid exchange between the 2 of them. Mohammed put a little extra into that foul, it was a good foul, gotta do that when someone is running open to the hoop, but he put a little stank on the contact, LeBron over reacted and Mohammed took it to another level.

    I see nothing wrong with Mohammed getting the boot from that. I may be biased though.
