Miami Heat Kiss GIF by ESPN
 

All gravy from here.

 

Grateful that Giannis didn’t try to suit up and wreck his ankle for good. He’s gonna look great in a Heat jersey.

so Giannis has to be known as a choker now right? People were saying the same about Lebron when he actually made a finals

 

LeBron never injured his ankle the way Giannis did.

So his team hasn’t even made it to the East conference finals when healthy

I don't disagree that Giannis is overhyped for what he's produced so far. However, you can't put the 2020 playoffs on him. He had a bad ankle; what can you expect?

What a game...

Look...I don't know if the Raptors can win game seven. Hell even if they do...can they repeat? The prospect of a weaker Miami team (compared to potentially full-strength Milwaukee team) is enticing. Still...even THAT...can they beat either LA team in the Finals? Probably not. Be it game seven of the Boston series or somewhere else down the line, this is likely the swan song for this Raptors team and by G-d...I saw this stupid dinosaur team I stuck by win the NBA Championship. That's wild. I'll never forget that. So whatever happens? It's been a hell of a ride. Thanks guys 🙂

 

With all of that being said...ride or die! We the North! 🇨🇦

Kawhi Leonard is just going to drag this team as far as he wants. Still have to pinch myself that he's a Clipper.

It’s a damn shame that we’re finally about to get our first Lakers-Clippers playoff series with the series being unable to play in LA.
 

I also feel terrible for the Clipper fans who have waited their entire lives’ to finally see their team in the conference finals but now are unable to show that support in person. Staples would have been rocking.

Pretty frustrating series -- Boston's been the better team for most of the time, but Toronto keeps getting the momentum-swinging big plays and the Celtics are blowing opportunities to close it out. The absence of Hayward has been acutely felt -- partly because of the size he adds, but mostly because they lose their margin of error for key guys having bad nights. (What a disaster Kemba Walker had yesterday.)

 

And why was this overgrown Ralphie Parker standing in that position?

I don’t get how Celtics are in the wrong for the IT situation. 
 

It was a :censored:ty situation all around, but Celtics did what they thought was best for the team. 
Hindsight seems to have proven them right since he hasn’t been the same player since the injury.

Heck of a comeback for the Nuggets tonight. Jokic and Porter were super clutch in the end.

 

Kawhi needs some help out there. I think they've got some guy names Paul George or something like that, but I didn't see him do much of anything that mattered.

That game gave HBP like no other game. Close nearly all the way through. 

No disrespect to The Heat, but I think these were the 2 best teams in the East. 

 

Should be a fun ECF though. A 2012 Rematch. I like the Celtics chances against them better than against Toronto.

A hard-fought game despite the mistakes. All I wanted. It was a fun ride. But I hope the Heat burn the Celtics down next round.

Thanks for the memories, Raps. Looking forward to next year.
