3: Bruins - Pretty knowledgeable compared to Celtics fans. Mostly level-headed but can turn erratic on a dime. Obnoxious to a degree. The most heartbreak of any team in the city other than the 2011 Cup, which lends itself to more of an outsider feel than the other fan bases in the area.

 

Diehard Bruins fans have always felt a little set off from everyone else in Boston. I like them.

I hate to say nice things about the Heat, but nice to see them as a parade of mid to late draft picks forming an elite team. Eat it, tankers!

 

Phoenix is getting there, though with picks a higher level up than Miami.

 

Basketball history has shown that tanking is only successful at losing basketball games. Scouting, developing talent, finding good coaching, encouraging great conditioning, etc. aren't accomplished by loser franchises. Miami teams have made at least the conference finals in the 90s, 2000s, 2010s and now 2020s. It's a model franchise that never needed to tank year over year to get good.

I'll wait until Game 4 until calling this a series. 

 

Don't know why there's a 3 day break between Games 3 & 4, but I can't really complain. More time for Hayward to get back to 100% (or close to it). 

 

I'm assuming Monday night football.

The Eastern playoffs have been running against the Western bracket for weeks, so although it’s bizarre to hold just one series, but it puts both conference finals a little more in alignment. Of course this backfires immensely if the ECF goes seven and the WCF is a sweep. But you can never really know ahead of time.

LeBron stunk in the second half but the Lakers still won -- and in amazing fashion.

 

Not fair for the rest of the league, but at least LeBron finally didn't have to do everything to win his team to win. Amazing second half tonight after a bunch of Lakers playoff blowouts.

Boston has lost 6 of their last 11 games in these playoffs and they’ve almost never been down double digits in that time. That’s an impressive streak of mental lapses and avoidable mistakes. The lack of a reliable, All-NBA level closer on this roster is clear, so there’s nobody to save them from dumb turnovers, and running a lottery-team offense, and looking like you’ve seen a ghost if a team dares to run anything besides a man defense.
