This Atlanta comeback is one of the most amazing things I've ever seen.

 

Ben Simmons is complete and total trash.  How a professional can't (or simply won't) learn to shoot free throws (or any shot at all) blows my mind.  He's a complete liability and he should be ashamed of himself and his complete lack of ability to do the first fundamental thing of the game.  Joel Embiid should slap the ever living crap out of his non-caring ass.


Giannis is doing some pretty mind blowing stuff tonight.

Again though, a center vs a point guard.  Most centers don't become basketball players because of their basketball prowess or superior athleticism - usually because they're 7'10 and can block some shots.

 

Watching tonight's game, it's fully - Jrue Holliday was traded to start The Process, and now - the Sixers probably couldn't trade Ben Simmons... the jewel of the Process... for him.  "But he plays defense..." yeah - but he's a complete liability with no work ethic, heart, guts, desire, etc.  I reserve the right to change this opinion if he leads them to a victory in game 7 against Atlanta... but Tre Young is very good at basketball so I don't see that happening.  If they win, it will likely be in spite of him.

So you finally agree that Hinkie was a fraud. Thank you.

 

Milwaukee has given this game away. The Bucks might still win in OT, but I don't see how. KD is too good and the clear best player of these playoffs.

My gods - this is the first time I've watched the Nets play, and I can't believe how good Kevin Durant is at playing basketball.  He's the anti Ben Simmons.  He wants the ball, he's not afraid of taking the big shot, he's also 6'10" but is rail thin yet somehow far more agile than Simmons, and seems to have a genuine interest in winning basketball games.

Ben Simmons was a Coangelo gem.  Before he resigned for having his wife use burner Twitter accounts.  

 

You're welcome.

Bit of a brutal finish but that was an incredible game. Durant is probably going to get BBQd for that final shot, but what a performance overall. 

 

Not a bad outcome left! 
 

Pretty good summary to it here

Referees are complete jerks.  There's no reason to call this foul that has everyone confused and a guy shooting free throws that only impact gamblers and rub salt in it.  I swear, umpires and referees feel the need to make themselves matter because they have little weenies and are jealous that they weren't good enough to play the sports that they officiate.

KD played 53 minutes. You can't hold against him he had no lift at the end. Anyone who says otherwise is a knucklehead.

 

Durant was the best player of the series and he ran out of gas.

Simmons was the consensus #1 before Hinkie was fired. And the Hinkie fans I see give him all the credit in the world for that pick; or used to when Simmons looked good.

Then maybe it's not Hinkie or Coangelo - maybe the blame falls solely on the actual player.  This isn't like drafting Markel Fultz, who Danny Ainge obviously knew was flawed.  Ben Simmons clearly feels that he was good enough at whatever level he was out coming out of his bogus year of college, got paid, and doesn't feel like trying any harder than the bare minimum to collect his max contract.  Ben Simmons is everything that's wrong with sports.  He's probably playing video games while the rest of the team is practicing free throws.

 

EDIT:

Mike Schmidt was vilified for the majority of his Phillies career, because he didn't show much emotion and came across as "arrogant" to the idiotic "Philly's a blue-collar town, he's not one of us!!" idiots.  But at the end of the day, I don't think anyone can deny that he did everything he could to be as good as he could be.  There's some parallels between Schmidt and Simmons, but the latter is the exact opposite.  I don't hate him just because he doesn't show emotion and doesn't "get mad".  I think that's garbage - its's totally possible to care without all the histrionics.  I hate him because I legitimately think he does not care one single bit about the gift he's been given to make $40M/year and insults every intelligent person that turns on a TV to watch him play.  He's never worked at anything his entire life.  He's a waste of air.  Good for Kendall Jenner for getting rid of him.

Honestly, I wouldn’t be surprised if Dame went to Boston. Lillard/Tatum/Brown can handle Durant/Irving/Harden & Giannis/Holiday/Middleton. 


its a nice idea but I don’t think Boston has the assets for Lillard. Sounds like the Kemba trade cleared enough space to, uh, sign Evan Fournier. Not sure if they’ll have Smart after next year but just start him already, he fits the need there better than being a 6th man.
