Man, the finals are going to suck. These conference finals, however, should be entertaining. I don't like the Warriors or Rockets, but I don't think the Celtics or Cavs have a shot at beating either of them.

If the rockets trade Ryan Anderson for Melo, does the rockets have a better chance against the warriors?

"There are basketball reasons why the Warriors played more iso-ball last night than they usually do: Steph’s still ramping back up to full speed and their guard rotation is thinned out by injury, so letting Durant cook one-on-one is a way to limit everybody else’s exposure to fatigue and twisted ankles and whatnot. But it’s also just really funny, and cruel, whether intentionally or not. They wiped away Houston’s entire identity in one game, and revealed it as just the very stupidest thing to waste time developing in the first place, like dedicating a year of your life to perfecting the craft of flipping a light switch. What good is it? Golden State’s lights are brighter, and they can turn them on just fine."

[HT: TR = The Rooster]

P.S. The comments are hilarious. (Harden and Durant both cooked last night. Harden cooked like an Iron Chef contestant, working frantically against the clock to plate three gourmet courses all featuring grapefruit or some ****. Durant cooked like a McDonald’s fry cook, yawning and daydreaming about Rihanna while effortlessly churning out some of the most delicious food in the known universe.)

This sheeit is hilarious

Incredible. Justifying a shove in the back because it's not as bad as low-bridging. Excellent people skills, that Mr. Smoove.
Hope is a good thing. And nothing good ever dies, but it just may not make the playoffs.

Melo proved he is not a tretch 4 that gets relagated to the corner. Think Ryan is not very good at getting his own shot but better at standing in the corner and hitting 3's. Melo is a scorer that needs reps. Just dont understand why OKC would put him in that role. Watching OKC, George and Westbrook are not very good at setting up outside shooters.

Anyone see an ad for the Uncle Drew movie? Looks like a Nickelodeon movie that went wrong.

I saw it on YouTube a couple of months ago. I thought it was a joke at first. It looks bad lol

One that was really good which featured some GS Warriors from the early 80s is "Inside Moves". Wasnt a hit but it got an Oscar nomination. Not strictly a BBall film, but its central to the story. John Savage and David Morse are in it. Its on DVD.

I do, for some titles, its the only format available. Plenty of bluray/4k players which can upscale the picture to HD quality, or close. Its a permanent hard copy, nothing to get lost in the cloud.

Eventually will transfer all my DVDs and BDs onto a portable hard drive. Waiting on one that has a few more TBs to fit them all in and some room to expand.

It's essentially a financial apology from Nike to Kyrie Irving.

From what I'm hearing, Nike at the top level got split in half. LeBron James has a lifetime contract and is the face of Nike basketball. But Irving is a featured Nike signature athlete. So Nike simply stood by while James used Rich Paul and the press to gut Irving in the press over and over again. The major networks get that nice advertising money from Nike and all the other companies/brands in bed with Nike. So a Irving hatchet job only happens if Nike lets it happen. This is not how it's supposed to work. The unspoken deal is you work for Nike, you just "moonlight" as an NBA player, you do what the Swoosh tells you to do ( Like if you have a receding hairline covered in thrown in the air chalk and have a couple of babies out of wedlock, you get told to marry your long time GF and then abort that third on the way child because it looks bad for marketing) In exchange, the Big Swoosh manages all of your media for you, meaning you are protected on high by the Swoosh Prince Of Darkness.

The split happened internally because half the top brass knew what was going to happen and did happen. The other brands, shoe and apparel companies, started poaching and also push to new fresh meat out there that you should think about signing with a brand that will so clearly gut you in the back.

Personally I think Irving is an idiot, but he got completely railroaded in the press so LBJ can change the narrative when he leaves Cleveland again.

The Uncle Drew movie is clearly going to bomb, and it's going to function on a tax on more of LeBron Jame's stupidity. The guy runs his own agency, Klutch Sports, and rubs it in everyone's face all the time. He triggered one massive labor war that gutted the NBAPA and now he'll incite another one. He's the NBA's own Helen of Troy.

The depth of the utter stupidity of LeBron James knows no bounds. You'd need James Cameron and a deep dive submersible to try to get that far down to try to find it. The Uncle Drew movie is going to tank and when it does, some people are going to lose their jobs. Good job LBJ. You got what you wanted again, it just cost everyone around you. Idiot.
