    You herar athletes talk about how by the time you figure out the game mentally, your physical skills have started to erode. The great ones figure it out before that happens.

    LeBron has figured it out.

    I don’t think the Cavs beat GSW with KD, a healthy Steph, and a non-suspended Draymond but it won’t be LeBron’s fault.

      I think LeBron can figure out how to extend a series like this to 7 games.

      Golden State has no length inside the paint and as we saw from the first time they met in the Finals, MS…

      Klay can’t guard LeBron without fouling…Iggy has mixed results…

      And KD has a Daddy, he’s named LeBron

      I think Kyrie steps up his game, and so does Tristan. They will counter GSW’s strong points with their own strong points. Will certainly help if Love and JR contribute the way they are both capable of doing. Last year’s meltdown will weigh heavily on the GSW’s minds -- should they be able to get past Pop’s SASs.

      I’m inclined to agree with u on this one, MS, for all the reasons u listed. Plus the fact that the Dubs have one of, if not THE, best defense in the league.

      Hard fought series, too much from the Celtics as a squad, comes down to team in the playoffs. Wall didn’t do enough down the stretch, nor did Scotty make an adjustment. Decent year, kind of a plateau season for the Wizards. Some growth, some potential talent plateau (you wonder if they don’t try to work something for Gortat). Not sure this squad can ever do much better than this.

        Brooks couldn’t do it with Durant, Westbrook, Ibaka and Harden. Can’t do it now with lesser talent. Wiz needs better coaching.

      Smacks of the GOP not wanting a Special Prosecutor to look into Russian interference with the election.

      Foul was called & free throws were shot.
      Not sure what else was supposed to happen under the current rules.

      It’s a rough one, determining intent.

      Viewpoint A) He HAS to close out on the shooter. It’s a defensive play. These are the Western Conference Finals and every play matters and these things happen. He takes the second step to get as close as he can to disrupt the shooter.

      Viewpoint B) It was a dirty play. He OBVIOUSLY takes the second step to get up under the shooter and he moves directly towards the left foot (all supported via multiple replay angles). He does this all the time, he deserves a suspension.

      Viewpoint C) This is intense basketball and the sport is damaged by this discussion. At least it wasn’t a pre-meditated clothesline or a series of cup shots to key players. Yes it looks bad but he doesn’t LOOK down to see where his feet are, he’s just closing out on a shooter. Yes, the result is unfortunate and obviously is to the benefit of Golden State. But this will get evened out by the officiating in Game 2

      I say a little of D) All of the above.

      Hard to gauge that intent, man, real hard. Especially when it’s not an obvious thing, that second step isn’t uncommon, it happens all the time. It’s vastly different than the ball kicks Dray was dropping every 3rd game last year. Buuuuuuuut, Zaza has been in the middle of dicey situations before and he does have a rep.

      Bottom line: What do Spurs fans really benefit from having Zaza suspended for a game? More Draymond Green, that’s what. So let it go, it really sucks, yes, but it wasn’t as dirty as some playoff basketball I’ve seen.

        The second step was clearly after the fact. Made mere seconds before Leonard lands. Leonard did’t land on Pachulia’s foot, Pachulia stuck his foot under Leonard’s foot.

        Watch the video.

          Even on The Jump show, Kenyon Martin and Stephen Jackson said it was DIRTY.

        C)..matter of fact, when you watch the baseline replay he’s looking 180° in the opposite direction after the ball is released..

      The ball is released at the apex of Kawhi’s elevation. At that point, Pachulia knew exactly where Kawhi would come down, ergo that final “slide”.

      And just like they pay potential draftees, they’ve also been paying them(both college and pro, alike) to throw games and shave points. But what do I know. : )

      It’s always interesting to me how sport-talk radio & the media in general love to talk about the decline & demise of the NBA but ratings & attendance figures constantly prove otherwise.

      Ain’t like they have franchises folding every year. It’s a multi-billion dollar industry with an addicted fanbase that ain’t goin’ nowhere anytime soon.

        That’s right. Addicted. How else do you explain fans who easily believe that any game can be rigged and yet continue to watch ? You happen to know anybody like that, G ?
