    Hey LT. My thinking is Bird is totally lost and I don’t really have much hope for him. Also, Walker is an out before he gets in the box. Lazanga pitched great! I hope Romine can hit .250 holding the spot for Sanchez. I think Gary is way too heavy. Nice to see Stanton on fire. That’s my take for tonite, ha, ha.

      DJ, you are worse than the plague. Yankees have best record in the league. It’s a 162 game schedule. Your thinking is simply warped by your overactive addiction to winning.

      You probably desperately need an intervention and maybe a forced switch from Yankees and Lakers fans to rooting for your home town Indianapolis Indians and Pacers.

            He looked very good. We may have some good pitching coming, but perhaps not ready for the bigtime yet.

      Yep, knew we were dead the minute he took the mound.
      Poor job by German but great job by bullpen until Shreve.
      Problem is hitters just didn’t hit with men on base.
      Can’t remember a 3-game losing streak to the freaking Rays no less.

          Did you watch the game, DJ? Sanchez hit the hardest ball hit this year but straight at an outfielder. You give guys like him all the rope he needs. That’s like with shooters. Don’t want the coach lurking over his shoulder. Sanchez may be our best hitter in the end. You start the what have you done for me lately stuff way too soon.

    I only see what I see and hear what I want to hear and so, who on our current roster of kids could or really will be a perennial All Star throughout their career? With all the talk about who may come and we trade for to build a Finals-type team is gonna be untouchable. Is LB really J-Kidd? Is Kuz really Durant? Is Ingy? Is Randle? Is Hart?

     
    • mclyne32 (Director) 7:35 PM on June 19, 2018 Permalink | Log in to Reply

      I would not get rid of Kuzma, even if the Spurs demanded him.
      I will be extremely bummed if our FO doesn’t value Randle as much as I do.
      In the end, I’m extremely happy that we have two very capable guys making these decisions.
      Imagine if we still had Jimmy and Kupchek running things…

              Also, George Hill could stand to make 2 free throws. Bad fundamentals compounded by outright idiocy with a dash of Warriors class at the end. Ah well, honestly…who cares? Ain’t the Lakers out there so any interest I have is purely in how this effects free agency and, seeing as the Cavs are stuck with JR Smith until the end of the 2020 season, I would say the odds just tilted slightly to the King packing his bags.

          There’s always bad or missed calls, Deej … but u can’t just look at the calls or non-calls that r or aren’t made in the closing minutes or seconds. U gotta look at the totality of the calls and see how many went agains the Dubs as well. Maybe it wouldn’t even have been that close if a coupla calls or non-calls that went the Cavs way, hadn’t. It usually balances out in the end. IJS

          BTW, Cavs shot 22 FTs to the Dubs 20 … so there u have it.

            it’s not how many calls or how many free throws, it’s WHEN bad calls happen. the NBA’s officiating is getting worse and i can’t help but think that the NBA is fine with that. the refs jobbed the Cavs. i bet Vegas was happy.

              Naw, Hill needs to do his job and make 2. JR needs to do his job and know the score. The only truly bad call was T-squared getting thrown for defending Shaun Livingsotn’s punk a$$ shot at the end of OT. Just take the TO and be grateful you got out of this mess with a W. Draymond acting like he just cured cancer, AIDS and eradicated the Federal deficit is business as usual. Ole Nutshot Green can’t help but act like a classless tourist in an Appleby’s who got a free Mai Tai.

              Exactly. I figure come the morning we’ll see the NBA switch TT’s F2 to an common foul + a tech. I watched that shot and foul from 5 different angles: common foul. tech for shoving the ball in Green’s face…even if he deserved it.

              the Cavs lost on their own. they have Clarkson and Nance in key roles and JR Smith is a vet presence. without KLove and Korver(am i really writing this?), they’d be somebody’s bench. somebody not in the playoffs…

      And to think Bron scores a playoff personal best 51pts and KD has an off shooting night and they still lose, not sure if there’s any hope left for the Cavs now. But to be honest, prolly never really was.

      BTW, for the record, if the changed charge call on KD that was reversed to a blocking call is what some of u r referring to as a ‘bad’ call, then I’m not sure what u all THOUGHT u saw. What the replay showed was Bron clearly moving when the call was made. The reverse call was the CORRECT one IMO.

        The issue is that it shouldn’t have been reviewed in tha 1st place. Only thing that can trigger the replay is if there’s doubt on whether LeBron was in the restricted area..clearly he was 3-5 steps outside. Plus…you don’t have to be “set” to take a charge. That coulda gone either way but it definitely shouldn’t have been reviewed

            Restricted Area Block/Charge Review

            Since the 2012-13 season, referees have reviewed all block/charge calls when they are not reasonably certain as to whether the defender was inside or outside of the restricted area. For more information about what constitutes a block or a charge, click here). Restricted area replays are conducted only during the last two minutes of the fourth period and during all of overtime.

            When conducting their review, referees attempt to confirm or overturn their original call.

            The call is deemed a block if referees deem the defender was:

            Not in a legal guarding position, or
            In a legal guarding position, but inside the restricted area

            The call is deemed a charge if the defender was in a legal guarding position and outside the restricted area.

            Referees also determine if any unsportsmanlike acts or unnecessary contact occurred.

              But according to the info I just posted, he has to be outside the restricted area AND in a legal guarding position. If he was moving, which he was, then he wasn’t in a ‘legal guarding postion’ when the call was made IMO. But, I guess it’s what they often refer to as a ‘judgment/judgement’ call’.

            • mud

              mud 10:53 PM on May 31, 2018 Permalink

              yep. charge/block.

              in slow mo, it could be called a block. in realtime, it was a charge and Mauer was gonna call that, but then the implant started beeping in his head and he knew that he better call NEW JERSEY. NEW JERSEY, the source of all strangeness and evil in this country that isn’t Florida. or something.

              just make the call and get on with the game. i can handle a missed call or a bad call, refs are only human. what i don’t like are calls that seem to be special for one situation. if it’s a foul that will be called tonight, keep it that way, all night and for all players. that shows a desire to have a real competition. it’s just my opinion, but i don’t think that’s quite the plan in the current NBA.

              this replay stuff makes the refs look more crooked than ever. i think it’s better to see them as incompetent than dishonest.

              So, the decision to review charge/block calls can be made even if the player happens to be well outside the restricted area ? Doesn’t seem to gibe with the bit you posted above.

              Yeah, AK … it would seem that way, but the rule does allow for them to change the call after reviewing and whether the defender was in a ‘legal guarding position’ is also part of the rule and I guess that’s how they interpreted it. Of course, I still say it’s a judgment call and as I’m typing this they’re discussing this very issue and they’re sayin’ he was in fact moving and not set.

              Replay Triggers:

              (12) Officials have determined that illegal contact has occurred on a block/charge foul but are not reasonably certain as to whether the defender was inside or out- side the restricted area during the last two minutes of the fourth period or last two minutes of any overtime period(s).

              Page 55, Official NBA Rules, Section II: Reviewable Matters:

              l. If an instant replay review is triggered as described in Section I-a(12) above, the Replay Center Official and the official who called the foul would review the video to determine:
              (1) Whether the defender was inside or outside the restricted area.
              (2) Whether the defender was in a legal guarding position.
              (3) Whether any unsportsmanlike acts or unnecessary contact occurred.

              So, as you said, Lebron might not have been in a legal guarding position and they could have called a block in the first place. But the trigger for a replay doesn’t seem to involve the guarding position.

        That was also terrible reffing. Too bad NBA coaches can’t play the game under protest like in MLB, lol

      Her, DJ. 55 comments but nobody stepping up to support the KBJ & PG summer. I think mongo is in favor of that. Maybe there are others who will reply and support your LeBron and PG hopes. You’re going to be lonely

    Hard to find where we B at. But, how can Houston afford LBJ? Seems odd, but I am old, that Lakers can’t afford this guy or that guy, but OKC, Warriors, Houston can pay one and all.

      It’s not exactly that easy DJ. There are 3 ways that the Rickets can get Lebron and none of them are ideal.

      1. Lebron could opt in to his contract and they could trade for him. While the Cav’s might be okay with Gordon they would also have to take Anderson. Which would be a 20mil anchor around the neck of a rebuilding team for two years. Also the Rockets couldn’t give them a 1st round pick until 2020. So I don’t know if the Cavs want to help them out for what they get in return.
      2. The Rockets could choose Lebron over CP3. They would still have to move players but they wouldn’t have to find a trade partner for Anderson. Considering Lebron and CP3 are best friends I can’t see that happening.
      3. They would have to trade almost everyone except a Harden unless Lebron and CP3 were willing to play for steep discounts like half of their market rate or more.
      While possible it will be very hard. They could keep Cappella with option one and two. And possibly three depending on how little they are willing to play for. There is also the prospect of no depth.
      We will have to wait and see but I think the Cav’s would crazy to help Lebron and the Rockets with such a terrible trade.

    LT, LT, LT. We got to send Austin down (strike-out machine), he’s hurting us. I’d bring up Fraizer. On a Pos note, we win again.

      P-A-T-I-E-N-C-E-! Did all your kids have the same attention deficit issues, DJ? :-)

      The answer is pray for the Padres to suck so we can trade for Patrick Corbin, who is the perfect pitcher for the Yankees and will be a free agent next summer. NY kid and lifelong Lakers fan. He and Sevy would be a championship 1-2 ala Drysdale and Koufax.

    Facts for LT. Yankees get the most bad called strikes on them in the League. You know who gets the most bad strike calls in the League-Judge of course, sheesh!

      Yeah, I saw that, DJ. Hopefully, the umps will learn from this and give Aaron a break on those balls below his knees. Great comeback homer by Brent and clutch pair of hits from our rookies after some horrible defense. Sevy needs to bring his A game tonight so we can win the series. Love this team. Just need better starting pitching. Time to cash in some of those prospects we have no room for. I would trade Clint Frazier for Cole Hamels right now.

        You are so right about our Starting pitching. I want a bit more BA production from Hicks and Sanchez. Rookies and Judge doing great. Hopefully Gardy will continue to rise out of his slump. Stanton needs some adjustments made (hitting coach).

    Rockets gonna have a tough time winning 5 against 8, wow! Two major missed 3’s foul calls that cost Harden 6 pts.

      Wow, still 5 against 8, but GS has too many shooters and Rockets less CP3. Looks like Dani will be a bridesmaid as usual.

        Playoff officiating is a funny beast. Still get an inconsequential bump on the perimeter whistled while guys get mauled on the shot and nothing. Why not just make an app and let the fans decide every call if you’re gonna call games this way?

      Tall clover! Four All Stars beat 1. For those who want Ariza, did he play tonite?

      PS-GS in 5.

        Kinda hard to outshoot the Dubs, and I was listening to the game on the radio and Hubie Brown kept pointing out how the Rocs were killing them in the paint, but inexplicably reverted back to chucking AND bricking 3 after 3. Looks like D’Antoni just can’t get out of his own way.

      Rocs shot 22 FTs to the Dubs 14, not sure how that benefited the Dubs, Deej. IJS

        Nah, no worries, but did you see Harden get fouled on 3’s twice in the first half. Marv, Reggie and W-C-Webb all talking about what I saw. Like I said 4 Stars beats 1 nearly every time. GS is loaded, but have had to work for this series.

          Well, yeah … of course they had to work hard to win this series … they went up against the team with the best record and beat them in their building in a game 7. Ain’t like they played a buncha scrubs. Now granted, they may not have won had CP3 played, but injuries r a part if the game.

            Harden has had nothing but love from the refs, especially since the NBA crowned him as a key star. that deal with the Devil had to wear off eventually.

      Yeah but they let Harden use that running stiff arm/clear out move and never call it an offensive foul. Honestly, when the crux of your game is getting to the line they’re going to miss some calls or simply not call them. I think this has been a pretty well officiated game, really. 22 free throws to 14 and the Dubs had 5 more fouls called on them. Your basic home game.

    LT, am getting tired of Stanton K’s and DiDi struggles. Yanks have a hitting coach? Complainer, I know. They are winning by the narrowist of stuff. Ain’t complaining about winning though, lol!

      Only problem we have is starting pitching, DJ. That’s our only Achilles. The rest is just the usual ups and downs all hitters have. Sevvy looked solid again but we could need to find two more quality starting pitchers.

      Now u gotta ask…with the Rockets up 3-2 before CP3 went down; does Morey see a need to tear everthing down in order to get Lebron? Or does he keep the group together who was a game away from taking down GSW? Personally, I don’t see a reason to change course

  • DJ2KB24

    DJ2KB24 8:13 PM on May 23, 2018 Permalink  

    Game 7 at Boston? I dunno, LBJ’s team is bad. Either way, he ain’t staying in Cleveland. May not sign with us, but we have options at least.
