2019 NBA Playoffs Thread

Now I really want the Lakers to bring in Kyrie or Anthony Davis. Both are incredibly selfish players/people who blame everyone else when things go wrong, and Kyrie's head is even more swollen now than it was when Cleveland traded him. Durant's a drama queen too but he might actually make them title contenders, we wouldn't want that. Ditto for Kawhi.

 

An aging LeBackstabber + Kyrie/AD (or both!) + dopey Frank Vogel + incompetent Jason Kidd threatening to replace him every time the Lakers lose + idiot playboy model pissing all over her dead father's franchise + Lakers stans being notorious lolcows = comedy gold. If LA comes up empty-handed this summer it's too likely that LeBron will be traded out of this disaster and then the Lakers will just be another sad sack franchise with bad ownership and no clear path back to relevance.

I'm in a dilemma right now.

 

I want the Raptors to lose, because :censored: them for being a far superior team than the Magic.

 

I want the 76ers to lose, because their players and fans are just insufferable.

 

Can both somehow lose? Please? With a cherry on top?

Sixers loss gets a coach fired and possibly Butler and Harris signing elsewhere. Ben Simmons is also tradeable too

 

Raptors loss is Leonard leaving at best, Lowry and/or Ibaka leaving as well, but Siakom likely stays as he is their true asset.

Neither team is getting past the Bucks anyway.

Who is trading for Lowry at $33 mil and Ibaka at $22??

 

 

and there is a 0.1% chance Philly trades Simmons (only a sith deals in absolutes)

I can't bring myself to hate the Warriors, honestly. It's not like they shelled out tens of millions to sign big-name reserve players. They built a strong roster through drafting and trading, then made a couple free agency splashes. Plus, they all seem like decent enough people and they hadn't won a title in 40 years before this run.

 

That being said, I'd much rather see any of the other teams left win the Finals.

 

I can’t speak for anyone else, but it’s fun to hate on a great team (especially when your own team is hot garbage ☹️). It’s kinda what we do as sports fans. 

 

And the Warriors do have a fun team, objectively speaking. When Curry, Klay and co. are going off, it’s thoroughly entertaining. They built that team from nothing. They deserve a ton of credit. 

 

Durant is what transformed this team into the hatable juggernaut for me. He’s a spineless, coward who took the easy way out. 

 

I really want Giannis and the Bucks to beat them.

“Spineless coward” 🙄

 

He’s a damn basketball player, for Christ’s sake. He chose a new team in free agency. It’s not like he deserted his troops at Normandy and joined the Nazi cause or something. 

 

It it really amazes me how little self awareness sports fans, but especially NBA fans, have at times.

Top player in the league, that could turn multiable teams into championship contenders, instead signing with not only the team that beat him in the playoffs, but just won 73 games without him (and were already a championship team without him) is a scumbag move no matter how you put it. 

 

He basically broke the league by doing that. Hence why we haven't had a Dub-less Finals since 2014.

There’s a saying about hating the game and not the player that comes to mind here.

There's always an exception. 

Would you feel the same way id Lebron decided to join the Warriors instead of the Lakers?

How are we feeling about the Raptors at 6.5?

Portland is really putting up a fight here but Dame has been WAY off and they’re just too small without Nurkić. Every time they get close, Denver bullies them around with their size. 

 

Still though, if Dame wakes up a bit, they have a good chance.

It’s a real shame either of these teams has to lose. This is one of the most fun series I’ve seen in a LONG time.

Do either of these teams really have a chance against GS though? 

 

Lol absolutely not. Dame may get them a game, but this one is probably going to be over quick. 

 

But if Portland does find a way, I’d be really happy for them. This team is a lot of fun.

Ok Blazers if you can't knock off the Warriors then a least go down fighting. Lots of storylines. The Curry brothers & Dame against his childhood team, having grown up in Oakland.

Congrats Portland! Now step up and claim your prize, the yearly tradition of being the team that loses to Golden in the Conference Finals.
