    ROY is based on regular season, pal. Either way--SImmons gets it hands down.

    Good game for Mitchell last night though. Dude is a gunner, that's for sure. 26 shot attempts?! The kid can score. But only 2 assists and 4 rebounds? And a -6 for the game? Hmmmm

    Outstanding effort by my Pacers! Wasn’t the result I wanted today but they were supposed to win 29 games this year and be watching the playoffs. Not come within a possession of being the only team ever to knock Lebron out of the first round. Can’t wait for next season!

    Cant believe I’m saying this but I’m rooting for Philly out of the East the rest of the way.

    Whaaaaaaaaat?!?
    I've heard a couple people pros now say they think Philly will be in the finals this year.  I'm not one of them.

    Go Lebron!!!

    Pacers have been great this year and whoever got into Oladipo's ear and controlled his previously erratic game should be given a raise. I love that their season looks like a success and Playoff P is hurting in OKC

    Have to go with Philly bc they remind me of Indiana.  Supposed to be another rebuild season yet here they making waves in the playoffs.  I don't know anyone who plays for Toronto and I haven't cared about the Celtics since Bird retired.  As for Lebron, it's stale.  Same with Golden State.  They were cool at first but now I'm sick of them.  It's time for some new faces from both conferences!

    I still think the NBA taking 2 days off in between games (especially with no travel in between) is absofuckinglutely rifuckingdiculous!!  The NBA should never have days off.

    This was a big deal to the players.  Adam Silver changed the scheduling.  When coaches are sitting their players because they had back to back games is bad for business.

    Basketball players are about as soft as soccer players anymore.  Two days off between playoff games when you don't travel?  Even when you do have to travel, it should be one day tops.

    Yeah I can understand limiting back to backs during the season.

    But in the playoffs to have game one a Monday and game two allll the way, later in the week, on Thursday in the same town makes no fucking sense.

    He basically put the whole team on his back.  What is interesting though is there were two instances where Lebron sat and the rest of the team elevated it's game.  If the team can get that going then they'll be in the finals again.

    Scheduling conflict is one thing and is understandable.  But let's not act like this is the ONLY NBA playoff game with 2 nights of rest in the same town.  It's been going on for years.

    Well, here in the real city of champions, all 4 of our pro sports teams contend and we don't need to use a college team to try and bolster our championship pedigree. ;)
