    James held up his end. CP3 can’t shake the Warriors yet.

      What job?

      why?

      just because she’s female? if that’s the case, i hope she doesn’t. if she’s the best coach available to the Bucks, then ok, i’m with you. i think it’s all pretty debatable as far as who is “best”. there is zero need to hire her just to be PC.

        You’re such a typical angry little right wing man. With your typical bs smh

        It goes without saying that his hopes are she’s the most qualified. As if a billion dollar business is going to pay someone millions to be pc. I’m sure you also think people voted for Obama because he was black??

          you’re such a typical angry socialist. lol!

          yes, people voted for Obama because he was black. i know quite a few people who did just that. i don’t think EVERYBODY voted for Obama because he was black.

          yes, billion dollar businesses DO do things to be PC. a good example is the reaction of Facebook to the revelation of their massive spying operations on people’s lives. another is Delta Airlines deciding to stop advertising to NRA members.

          i just don’t care if she’s female, and i don’t have any other reason to love her. actually, i hope the Bucks hire her and then she sucks. i’m not antagonistic to her being female, i’m antagonistic towards her helping any NBA team other than the Lakers.

          why do you keep assuming that i’m angry? well, i am angry about some things, but not this. you really don’t know me.

    Donovan IS And always has thought of himself as a difference-maker.

    He may not have had a great shooting night but he stayed aggressive. He has the Mamba Mentality.

      ‘ve watched it twice already,” Mitchell said of Bryant’s Granity Studios-produced segment that airs on ESPN and ESPN+.

      After averaging 20.5 points in 33.4 minutes per game in the regular season, Mitchell has stepped up his game in the playoffs, in which he has scored 27.4 points per game and is averaging 38.6 minutes.

      “There were times when he was basically saying, ‘That can’t happen. This can’t happen,'” Mitchell said. “And I was laughing because he was right; they can’t push me off my spot. The way he broke it down made so much sense.”

        “So the fact Kobe’s breaking the game down is a good thing,” Snyder said. “It’s a compliment to Donovan. And there’s probably a lot of things he’s suggesting that we need to look at doing, some of which we probably are. But again, I have to watch it.

      ‘Aggressive’ being a word that I believe I heard Coach Snyder use a coupla times in his postgame comments, Sean. If they stay aggressive on offense and be solid on D with Rudy as their anchor, this one could go 7. I like their aggressiveness, let’s see if they keep it up.

        Yeah, but focused and controlled aggression. Snyder and his staff made some great adjustments, Ingles having the game of his life didn’t hurt but they were smart to recognize and continue to exploit that.

        Great playoffs in the second round, first was kinda boring. Handful of good games.

        Yup. Everyone wrote Utah off after they got dumped by Gor-Hay. Mitchell flipped that script, big time. Simmons might suffer a bit in that it’s honestly his second season. He watched games, received NBA-level coaching, training and nutrition advice and was around his team. They have a rapport, regardless of how it formed. The difference between his “rookie” season and Randle’s 12 minutes of a rookie season is laughable.

        Donovan did not, his real first year. Came in and straight balled out. In my opinion, the clear winner but who knows. Simmons, to his credit, made it a close decision.

      His rebound dunk off of his own miss was one of the best in game dunks I’ve seen in a long, long time- especially since Capela and another Rocket were going after it.
      I love watching the Phony Beard and Antoni lose just as much as the Celtics.

      And I think I read that no other Cav scored more than 20 in any game. That’s just crazy…

          Literally…the other players are on the court only as an outlet when he gets stuck. If he can get this team to the finals I might be ready to proclaim he is indeed the GOAT.

    Psychologically speaking, the Greenies have lived rent free in the collective heads of the Bucks.

    See a similar pattern merging in Game 7

      LBJ has lost a step on D and Russ is at best a marginal defender, ditto with Harden and KD uses his length but can be overpowered with physicality.

      AD is the hardest player to scheme against as a Defender can switch, savvy enough to understand he can trap guards and bigs on Rim Angles.

      Strong enough to stay positioned in the post and because he has the best core in the NBA, his base allows him to frustrate you with his length and strength.

      A True Monster.

        Forget LeQueen and PG!
        Start setting things up to steal AD!!!

        Also not the greatest history of avoiding injuries large and small. Not an ironman for sure.

          Who cares, with the exception of Ju, none of the so-called ‘young core’ have been able to stay healthy either. And Julius was only able to play in all 82 this season, his 4th. I’d be willing to bet that Magic and Rob might be much more interested in acquiring him than u.

            I wouldn’t have any problem adding AD to our roster but there is no realistic path to that so why even talk about it. Might as well hope that we get KD as a free agent. Stupid.

    I guess a lot of NBA fans and Lakers fans were enamoured with Whiteside. Never saw the hunger.

    When he got paid, he got a fat head and decided to rest on his laurels.

    So glad we dodged this. Again, all the talent in the world with no work ethic.

    As one of AD biggest fans, I’m very happy to see him vindicate himself as a Dominant player if he sweeps the Blazers.

      I don’t think he had to vindicate himself to anyone, Sean. It shoulda been obvious to anyone who saw him win a championship as a Wildcat, that he was bound for greatness on the next level. I know I did.
