  • cutzcutz Posts: 7,611
    So sweep? Or will the Cavs lose in Cali?
    I guess it depends if they feel like getting back on a plane, or not>LOL

    They win tonight then shit the bed the next game...

    They blew 2 games.  They should be up 2-1 right now.  They invent new ways to lose.

    I think I'm done commenting on here for a while as I'm that butthurt from this series...

    They are 10-1 underdogs or something like that. I'm not good with betting lines. The fact that they got that close twice is probably better than what most people thought would happen

    Eh I gotta rattle the cage at least a little. 
    He left the second best team in the conference to join a championship team.  Its a little different comparison

    Absolutely.  Why does no one talk about his burner twitter accounts where he was arguing with random jerkoffs on twitter that were saying bad things about him?!?  One of the most absurd things I've ever seen.

    You forgot about Jordan’s “I quit b-ball to play baseball for my dad” excuse when he served his silent sentencing for gambling on NBA games.

    Prime Hakeem wouldve beaten those Bulls at least once. MJ sat out when one of the best centers peaked.  Cartwright and Longley werent stopping Olajuwon.

    I do think that MJ leaving only fueled his passion to win, hence the next 3 championships and walking away again.

    Everyone forgets the lack of playoffs and progress when he went to the Wizards.  Lebron changed teams 3 different times and went to the finals with all 3 different teams.  Jordan didn't do that...

    Put that into perspective.

    His time with the Wizards? You mean when he was 39, after a 3 year layoff, playing with a bunch of scrubs? How is that comparable to anything Lebron's done? Lebron's 33. When MJ was 33 he was in the middle of his second threepeat....

    The fact that he was still able to put up 20, 5 and 5 at an age where most people are years deep into retirement speaks volumes about MJ's greatness.

    Uhhh yeah, comparing MJ on the Wizards to LBJ now is just plain silly.

    Comparing either career is just silly. 1A and 1B... just friggin enjoy watching him for a few more years.  There's no-one on the league close and who knows how long if ever there will be a 1C.

    I just saw this....  IMO this is an amazing idea (with some tweaking in event of allowing an OT game and also in the case of a blowout).  Everyone I know who hates on basketball cites the final minutes and intentional fouls as the reason

    "The Elam Ending, as it’s been deemed, would stop the clock at the first whistle with less than three minutes left in an NBA game. However many points the team in the lead has, add seven, and that would be the target score to end the game. So if there’s a foul with 2:55 remaining and the Warriors lead the Cavs 106-101, the rules are simple: The clock vanishes and the first to score 113 wins. The incentive for Cleveland to foul would be far smaller. The advantage for Golden State would fit the lead they carried. It was so inventive, The Basketball Tournament – a 5-on-5 contest with a $2 million prize – used it during play-in games last year."
