    I understand the 2 with rings comprehend the magnitude of what winning in NYC could do to boost their reputation, in an historic recognition sense.

    Could DC/KW duet be a better fit? We could back to old school, with Boogie and MRob in the paint. Kemba doesn’t miss time like Kyrie. Are they hungrier, more lunch pail types? Probably cheaper, leaving room for another fairly significant add.

    KD/KI more about years 1-3, while the other 2 more about long term.

    Kemba
    DSJ
    Zion
    Boogie
    Robinson

    You do know Boogie's in his 9th season, plus this were Boogie's first time in the playoffs .. same could be said bout Kemba in his 8th season .. u cant be looking for any star $$$ in FA when u aint a star.

    That small ball lineup Kenny runs did not work tonight. Great game by Ben Simmons, quietest 31 pts you have never heard because he doesn't take 3s or jump shots. People say if he ever gets a jump shot watch out and they're probably right but my bet is 5 yrs from now he still doesn't have a a jump shot.

    Yeah yeah .. Second-season Simmons took complete control over the 3rd game of the series over Brooklyn, scoring 31 pts on 11-13 FGA, plus going to the FT line for 9-11 pts, grabbing 4 rbs, and 9 dimes .. Yeah, Ben Simmons 2nd season performance are in the same categorize class as Magic/Bird and Lebron & D.Wade 2nd n 3rd season performance of not shooting any 3 ball shots lol
    NBA Head coaches back in the Daze weren't gonna lose their job for letting rookies n 2nd season players have the green-light to shoot 3-balls, especially when young-core players like Simmons need to work on their passing inside the paint to a moving teammate.
    I see Simmons NBA future as being one of the Top-10 players after his rookie season.

    Last night and tonight Games are critical being the 3rd Game of a playoff series ....
    Raptors vs Magic series are Tied at 1 each playing at Magics Home ....
    Boston leading the series 2-0, will be playing at the Pacers LOUD home tonight ....
    Blazers leading the series 2-0 over OKC, now its on in OKC tonight ....

    Embiid starting but Kenny hasn't given up on that small lineup starting Dudley today along with DLo Lavert Allan and Harris. Ball movement is good with this group.

    Didn't know the Nets had the worst attendance in the NBA averaging about 14,500. If the Knicks were a playoff team you couldn't get into MSG. Oak attending the game, I doubt Dolan would let him when the Knicks make the playoffs

    Nice behind the back no look bounce pass to Allan for a dunk from Lavert, the kid can pass the rock.

    Great last couple of minutes in the Nets/Sixers game with Redick and now Mike Scott knocking down 3s to give the Sixers a 11O-1O8 lead with 19 seconds left.

    Sixers with a great defensive play trapping Allen in the post with 3 guys so he can't pass the ball or get to the basket and turns the ball over. Nets lose a heart breaker. Dudley got ejected along with Butler earlier in the game, both knuckle heads, you would think seasoned vets like those 2 would know better. People will now wonder how that would have affected the game if both were able to play, Dudley was having a good game until the ejection.

    Harden is unbelievably 0-13 with 6 points on his freebies with 4 minutes left in the 3rd. Jazz up 68-67, Rockets have the Jazz right where they want them when Harden gets it going in the 4th.

    Harden struggled but got 14pts in the 4th, made his 2 buckets in the 4th and scored 22pts overall. Donavan Mitchell had 34pts but missed a wide open 3 from the right corner that would have tied it with seconds remaining in the game, he was only 9-27 from the field. Rox take a commanding 3-0 lead in the series.

    Crazy to think Harden missed his first 15 shots. He’s been putrid in the playoffs, for the most part, but that’s probably bc of his heavy usage during regular season.

    According to the NBA maybe not such great D. NBA in their last minute report said the refs missed Tobias Harris hold on Allan that should have been called a foul. Sean Marks who was fined and banned for a game for confronting the refs in their locker room area for their lack of calls on Embiid ain't going to like this.

    Poor Pacers gone fishing and Pistons, Magic, Jazz,Nets, and Clippers soon to follow...Kind of surprised Dime/McColough outplaying Westbrook and PlayoffP though. I doubt Billy Donovan survives this time...Second round should heat up East and West. Nick Wright from first things first getting killed on twitter for damning the Nuggets calling them “pretenders with a pretend superstar.” Their series with the Spurs is tied 2-2 and the Joker is dang near averaging a triple double. Nick was on his show talking about NY Giants football instaed of the NBA playoffs to avoid the topic all together Most TV talking heads don’t know anymore about the topic they are handsomely paid to talk about than me or you

    Took a trip to Disney World, I had to record the Easter weekend playoff ....
    The Philly vs Brooklyn series has great intensity, and their 4th game of the series turned out to be a war of wars. One of the best playoff games I have seen so far. Philly has all the talent, and Brooklyn are performing with team-heart. Phiily lead series 3-1

    I was expecting to see a full 7 games played in the series from the Blazers vs OKC .. Blazers lead series 3-1
    Raptors own a 3-1 lead over the Magics in their series ....
    GS Warriors own a 3-1 lead over the Clippers in their series ....

    The Denver Nuggets vs Spurs are an interesting series tied at 2 games a piece ..
    The Spurs has postseason experience, and the Nuggets has young star talent ..
    Experience vs Youth Talent ???

    Boston swept the Pacers 4-0 to win the series ..
    And tonight it look like the Bucks are gonna sweep the Pistons 4-0 .. To much Giannis !!!
    And the Rockets are gonna sweep the Jazz 4-0 ..
    The Rocs Harden/CP3 tandem are way to much for the Jazz tandem Rubio/Mitchell to slow down.

    First game of the MIL/DET series I've watched and DET putting up a fight tonight. BG with his left leg heavily wrapped, looks like he's playing with a cast on, not sure he should really be on the court but he is in going old school playing while injured. Pistons trying to avoid setting the record for most consecutive playoff games lost at 14 tonight, they've been swept in 3 consecutive playoff appearances.
