      Unlike Love and Irving, Damian Lillard propelled his team to the Playoffs.

      Lamarcus Aldridge had a great season, but cooled off a little bit in the last 12 weeks. Lillard was steady as she goes and his defense improved from last year.

      Just a matter of opinion, Lillard has Leadership that Irving doesn’t have.

      But with Coach K, It’s favoritism and Irving went to Duke.

        Nobody else sees it? Okay.

        Why’d he take Mason Plumlee over Andre Drummond? SMH.

        Cronyism and Favoritism run-a-mock in USA Basketball.

        Would Pop take Irving over Lillard? Possible.

        Plumee over Drummond? No.

        I kinda stopped caring after George’s leg bone came through his sock.

      I’m personally not happy about Dame getting cut. Especially since he’s a much better 3-pt shooter. http://stats.nba.com/playerVsPlayer.html?PlayerID=203081&VsPlayerID=202681

      Not a fan of that move actually.

      DeMar DeRozan plays defense for 24 seconds, if the cuts are the real deal, that’s what separates him from the other wings that didn’t make it.

    Kinda sad, how ESPN has such a large presence in the media arena, yet, are so condescending with regard to Lakers and Dodgers. The obvious teammance with the Clippers and the Angels, provide a revealing contrast to their feelings towards the other team.

            I’m having trouble, my girlfriend wants a dog. Oh Lord, you know what that leads to! Hahahahahaha.

            “Can we get a dog? Why can’t we get a dog. No??”

            Brother, that man cave is looking less likely every year.

      They’re dying to see the underdogs take over LA…But ain’t gonna happen…Lakers & Dodgers (although the Dodgers need to win a f*** title, it’s about time with all those guys).

        Although I would say that Angels/As matchup carries considerably heavier playoff implications than Dodgers/Mets. If the Dodgers were playing the Giants this weekend I think there’d be more even coverage.

        Honestly, I only look for articles on ESPN these days, I don’t watch the channel unless the Lakers or the Angels are on. The quality of that channel has plummeted to pitiful levels, Magisman’s twitter feed posts are more up to the minute and people here generally have more insight. But with a lot fewer commercials. And pomp.

      It’s a Troutmance. Also, ESPN has always had a hard on for Pujols but loved the slut that is Josh Hamilton’s big whomper swing. Arte can sure create a team to market, but can this pig win?

      Life long Halo fan and when the Angels won it all in 2002 I was working in Cape Town, RSA. Had to wake/stay up til 3 AM to watch the games. Haven’t sniffed a world series when my feet have been on American soil. I don’t know if this is the team to go all the way, but I’m enjoying the ride.

      But a mighty “Hell yeah!” to your point on ESPN having an anti Laker bias, TNT, too, although Chuck gives everyone a fair shake, more their choice of game commentators.

      After each interview Kobe would text Chopra, eager to hear what people said. Most answered with some variation of ‘the ultimate competitor’ or ‘killer instinct.’ But when Chopra asked Steve Nash, he said something different. After thinking for a moment, Nash answered, slowly, in three beats: ‘Mother … f****** … a******.

      “Kobe thought this was awesome.”

      This is something I’ve been thinking about for a while. I even posed the question to Amit, that the avenues Twitter Management has taken, is ready to go off a cliff with certain individuals, like this.

      Because someone hides behind an Avatar, like a creep or an MF, and thinks they can talk s**t. SMH. Just because you hit SEND or REPLY doesn’t entitle ANYONEto claim insanity or ignorance. It just doesn’t.

      There’s no hiding under Rocks or in Caves, even on Twitter.

      Who’s forcing him to reply?
      When you have as strong a presence on Twitter as he has, it’s part of the territory.
      I’m guessing he knows the deal….

        All I see is him handling things like he supposed to. Making people look ignorant as they sound.
        .
        Wish other superstars did it that way, instead of antagonizing morons.

          It’s an A&B conversation and he’s not the one engaging the conflict, merely responding.

          Guys like KD and Baron Davis have an antagonistic approach, like I said and sometimes when a conversation doesn’t even involve them.

          That’s what I mean. Lillard doesn’t start a fight but he’s the one who finishes it.

          It’s a mind-set based on handling Conflict. Growing up in Oakland can create a certain personality.

          Like growing up in DC or NY creates a different one.

        He hit big shots against the Nuggets and Spurs in the playoffs in 2013 and against the Clippers this year.

        I wouldn’t hesitate running plays for him, LRob.

          Defended a PG and a SG in the last seconds of a game. Just another reason why the man’s one of the rare versatile defenders in the NBA.

      Sean -- Thanks for the highlights. I remember that shot vs. the Spurs…that was big time. The Kings…meh. He’s still a tad to passive for my taste. He has the ability I just want to see him go get it more. Oh yeah his defense on CP3 kept the Warriors in that series. He’s a solid all around and I would definitely want him on the Lakers….I just want to see a little more aggression on the offensive end. He has to much skill to just float thru at times.

          There you go wanting to trade a potential all-star big who we have on a rookie contract for an expensive floor player. You really think that Randle isn’t going to be a very special player, right?
