2019 NBA Playoffs Thread

The NBA should start scheduling National TV triple-headers on Sunday afternoons starting in late January and put more West coast teams in those time slots if they want people to be able to see LeBron, Steph, etc.. Since TNT's coverage is the best, let them have a Sunday night primetime game featuring the best matchup of the week. Let them be able to "flex" a game into primetime like the NFL does.

That's a great idea. ABC/ESPN have never done as good a job as NBC did with the NBA.  The flex idea in the winter is awesome.

That's likely DOA from the NBPA.  Even with the fleet of Delta jets chartering them around, getting flexed for a late night game when you might be on to the next city (or home), especially if you are an Eastern Conference team.

I've heard people compare him to a less bulky Anthony Mason. As somebody who wasn't into basketball when Anthony Mason was playing (I know him more for "Story to Tell" and his habit of punching people at nightclubs), how accurate is that assessment?

 

Draymond’s defense is probably a notch or two higher than Mason (but don’t get me wrong, Mason was definitely very good. Draymond is just better). I’d also argue he’s a better distributor than Mason ever was, but having teammates as lethal as Steph, Klay, and KD definitely help. Mason was also probably a better pure scorer than Draymond has ever been. But, again to be fair, Draymond is surprisingly efficient for the type of player he is and the warriors don’t really need him to be that efficient.

 

 

That’s actually a pretty solid comparison.

Does Turner think it's cute when Marv makes mistakes like calling Brook Lopez "Robin"? Because he does stuff like that all the time and it's worse season after season.

 

Impressive game by the Raptors so far.

He's reached the Verne Lundquist stage of player misidentification

Check out the big balls on Toronto! Great game and win for them. I'm rooting for them hard in game 6.

 

Kawhi's post-game interviews are the best.

 

Interviewer: How do you best this team one more time?

 

Kawhi: I don't know. I haven't even gotten to the locker room yet.

 

 

Hahaha. He's better than Pop.

As a Raps fan, I'm just soaking in the moment.

This thing is going 7 as the Warriors rest. 

 

Yeah, that worked out well for the Islanders.

This has been the most successful post-season in Toronto Raptors history. That being said? They need to go over Milwaukee. I'm not sure if they can beat the Warriors (though they are 2-0 against them in the regular season), but a Finals berth would be huge for this team regardless.

The Bucks haven't really looked right as of late, which is really changing my perception on them after they looked so dominant throughout the playoffs.

 

Maybe the Raptors had us fooled?

I'd like to see Kawhi up against the Warriors. Kind of a revenge series but Zaza ain't there.

This isn’t hockey. Rust doesn’t affect basketball players as much because as the saying goes “shooters shoot”

It would be super cool to see the Raps finally get over the hump into the Finals. Still rooting for the Bucks bc I like Giannis and I think they would give the Warriors more of a fight (although, based on current form, maybe not). But Kawhi is really good and funny so I’d be totally cool with Toronto too. Plus we’d get to see Drake vs. Silicon Valley snobs.
