    That whole multi account thing shows that this country spends too much time on the internet instead of doing something productive or a hobby.. maybe it is a good idea to have limited internet access..

    I think the perimeter defense by the refs was outstanding.

    If Im the Cavs, I come out and plan on fouling either KD or Steph HARD!! Take the technical, send a message.

    They dont have the horses to beat GSW in basketball, going to have to find a way to set the tone and hope.

    This is the first basketball I've watched all season long, college or NBA. Looks like I haven't missed much over the past 4 years.

    Why don't people want to call this man the GOAT?

    Inspiring half by Cle. Getting rebounds, loose balls...

    However, we all know what happens in these 3rd quarters.

    Keep it single digits going into the fourth and you got a punchers chance.

    Durant going to the Warriors effectively ended all the suspense from the NBA for the foreseeable future.

    Lebron may get the jerry west finals mvp... though I predict there is going to be a game where he will be exhausted from start to finish. He has played a ridiculous amount of minutes and it is taking its toll on him..

    That one game may ruin that jerry west fmvp for him.

    I am sure it is not the case, but I sure feel like all the missed/wrong calls late are going the Warriors way. ****ing make your damn free throws.

    LeBron almost got a win, but too bad the rest of the team is so disappointing.

    That overturn was criminal.

    That being said George Hill will not sleep well tonight.

    Bron still the GOAT.

    Is it me or is clapping and screaming in someones face NOT taunting?? Seems like Draymond gets away with to on the regular.

    It is not taunting if you are Draymond. Just like you can show up refs and yell if you are Draymond all.the.time. and only get techs in instances that would get other players tossed.

    Um jr smith ****ed the cavs... that was probably an all time stupid play. Even more so than Webber’s timeout that he didnt have..

    I'm not sure he makes the shot, but he shouldve called a quick TO.

    Things that led up to that are what I'm disappointed in. Bad officiating, missed free throw, then the only guy on the Cav's who didnt know the score??? Found himself with an offensive rebound.

    Wasn't meant to be.

    Jr couldve hit a 3 foot layup off the rebound.. instead ran the ball out thinking they were up... even if you think youre up get the two pts... or if you have any self awareness of what is going on in game, call the timeout..

    That’s half the league though if we are being real. Draymond complains but so does Lebron and no one in the NBA has ever committed a foul. The whole league whines. In hockey or football, you get penalties for complaining...the nba needs to adopt similar protocols but you’d be down to watching the 8-12 players on the bench on the floor.

    He’s this generations Rodman. No one likes him unless he’s on your team.

    Here’s a narrative for ya...

    In January of 2015 the New York Knicks (or more specifically Phil Jackson) traded JR Smith and Iman Shumpert to Cleveland for a 2nd round pick and a throw in Lance Thomas. I said it back then the Knicks got the better end of the deal getting a 2 and a wing payer who can defend and has leadership traits even if he’s not a great player instead of 2 boneheads. Looking at it today what that trade really represents is Phil Jackson telling Lebron “You’re never winning as many rings as MJ and here’s two knuckleheads to make sure of it”. And Lebron, like the GM he is, wanted these two guys resigned along with Tristan Thompson.

    Thank you Phil. You couldn’t make the Knicks great again (because you couldn’t keep your mouth shut ya goofy looking brainiac) but at least you’ll prevent a player I can’t stand from winning! :yes:

    I remember sometime last year, Paul Pierce and other media people were ready to dethrone lebron as the best player in the league and durant is now the best... if there is anything we have learned the last two weeks... Durant is not that guy... and i dont think he will ever be... lebron will remain the best player for 3 more years at the very least, and then a new player will emerge.. it might be a drsftee or zion williamson, idk.

    Crazy to think that dude could keep this up 3 more years, but I certainly wouldn't bet on anyone else to do it BUT him.

    No foul when hitting LeBron in the air, and then giving Lue a tech Too? Sure, good call refs.

    Would be a good time for Korver to hit a few 3's....Cavs defense has just given up way too many easy buckets.

    For sure. Lebron is the greatest player I have ever seen, but this is too much to to ask of even him.

    Trolls will likely claim Jordan wouldve won this game too.

    Ty Lue should have benched Jr Smith at the half and went with korver and hood in his place... jr smith was useless, and probably shouldnt see a minute in game 3 if ty wants to win a game. If the cavs get dominated in game 3 and 4, ty’s head will be the first to roll because lebron is likely out.

    I think there is a fair chance he leaves regardless of if the Cavs get dominated or not. I don't want him to leave, but I have a hard time seeing him win another title if he stays in Cleveland.
