    Angry A WATER-DOWN NBA League ....

    The point I am about to make is how much has the NBA "Water-Down" the league teams, coaches, and players since 1999 when the Spurs won their first championship season.

    The San Antonio Spurs coach Pop and Duncan has had some great championship teams within their 18 years in the NBA. A few of the Spurs championship teams were twice or three times as better than their 2015-16 team. The Spurs BIG-3 were younger n quicker a decade ago.

    How come the Spurs BIG-3 All-Star team a decade ago never came close to having a undefeated season at Home?
    How come a GS Warrior team that resemble a John Stocton, Hornachek n Karl Malone Utah Jazz Team, or resemble the MVP Steve Nash, Matrix, Amare Phoenix Suns Team win a Championship?
    Plus how did Lebron James join a 33 win season Cavs team in the offseason to take the Cavs to the FINALS the next season when Lebron had a much better roster of players n coaches before he abandon the Cavs???

    Interesting post. Don't see a reason the league should be watered down, same amount of teams for years and the NBA now has an international talent pool to draw from, players from overseas still want to come to play in the NBA. Interest in the league is at an all time high, witness how many Canadian players there are in the league now, which is an indication that it's not an American game anymore.

    What do you think are the reasons you think the product is "watered down", only thing that's really changed is the number of 1st year college players coming out. So you have a kid like Wiggins who might not be as good his first couple of years in the league compared to being drafted after playing 4 years in college.

    Are u serious! The NBA teams, coaches and players are extremely "WATER-DOWN"
    The NBA started watering-down the league when Jordan drop the baseball bat to return back to NBA.
    When Jordan won his 6th championship ring and retired, the NBA stop watering-down the league.

    Tiger .. u have to be real young n missed the Larry Bird / Magic Johnson / Isiah Thomas era when hand checking were allowed in the NBA on the perimeter .. and the Bad-Boys won consecutive championship rings.

    The 2014-15 championship GS Warriors would have only made it to the 2nd round of the playoffs every season in the 1990's era, especially if they had to face the western conference Utah Jazz Stocton/Horn/and Karl Malone in a series,
    or the Phoenix Suns Barkley and KJ in a series,
    or the Houston Rockets Olyjuwon/Horry/K.Smith/Sam Cassel in a series.

    And with their upcoming schedule it's hard to believe they'll keep the losing games at 9 before the playoffs start. I won't be surprised if the Spurs steal the #1 seed

    The Warriors are going cold at the wrong time. That's Boston, Lakers and now the TWolves that have beaten them in the last month, I take back what I said about them being unbeatable, losing to the Lakers and MN is a bad omen.

    I think the Spurs might pull it off, said it was going to be a great WC finals and I can't wait until they meet.

    It's going to be to tough for the Warriors to lose that top seed. Warriors are 3 games up in the loss column with 4 games left for them and 5 for the Spurs, they play twice in a home and home. You couldn't ask for a more thrilling way to end the season with the top 2 seeds in the WC meeting twice in their final 5 games.

    The Spurs loss to the GS Warriors 112-101 .... the game wasnt exciting or fun to watch because Spurs kept missing so many easy shots they always make throughout this game.
    It remind me of the strategic coach Pop Spurs when Duncan/Gino/Parker were younger the the BIG-3 would always lose the first game in the first round of the playoffs.

    The Knicks messed up their rotation by letting Melo play 38 minute vs the Hornets .. Will Melo play vs Philly tonight? WHY?

    Do anyone remember this guy ...

    Lin has 25 points to send Hornets to 114-100 rout over Celts
    Jeremy Lin scored 19 of his 25 points in Charlotte's big second quarter, carrying the Hornets to a 114-100 win over the Boston Celtics on Monday night.

    The Spurs are on a 3 game losing streak .. that is the first time this season .. then again its the final 5 games b4 postseason.

    A healthy double-double Blake Griffin return to the Clippers lineup for the final 3 games of regular season

    Knicks news ... On Monday, multiple reports indicated that team president Phil Jackson would take a long, hard look at David Blatt.
    We all remember Lebron carring some bad Cavs teams to 50 win seasons.
    Blatt's receive nada coaching credit for Cavs success last season from me.

    He was big in that Spurs win in the Spurs building. 16 pts in the 3rd qtr and his best shot in the game was one that didn't count, heaved up a 3 pointer with one hand as the buzzer went off to end the 3rd from 70 ft away. He makes shots like that too often to be called luck, greatest shooter I have ever seen.

    Congrats to the Warriors and Steve Kerr, not sure what he would have done as coach of the Knicks but he had to be better than DFish. I predicted he would never take the Knicks job over the GSW job and now you see why. Two great seasons by that Warriors squad compared to a horrible Knicks team .

    Also congrats to Steph Curry for shattering his own made 3s record of 286 that he set last season with 402 3 pointers. Beat his old mark by over 100, that's phenomenal.

    I wonder how it would have turned if Kobe's last game wasn't against the Jazz but against Curry's Warriors trying to beat the Bulls' record

    Yeah, can only imagine... Regardles, Bryant's 60 was a much better story and accomplishment than the 73-9. It's debatable whether Golden State is as good as the '96 Bulls or '72 Lakers or if the Warriors played in as strong of a league; it's NOT debatable that no one's ever had as big of a final game as Kobe just did, that **** was insane!

    ETA: This GS team definitely isn't better than our early 70s Knicks squads. Walt would've wiped the floor with Klay and Green
