    Annoying. Isnt it?  They all flop.   Ginobli and Lebron made it famous in the 2000s.  Now its a smart tactic unfortunately.  

    Its like watching soccer. 

    it’ll never be that bad. :lol:

    BTW....been thinking about skill in pro sports...I think it’s:

    #1 NBA and/or NHL

    #2 MLB

    #3 NFL

    #4 soccer...and I mean premier league....I could hide out in “M”LS
    If I had known then what I know now...

    He is a great player but his style doesn't fit well in a team sport.  I think of young Kobe, Iverson and Nique when I look at Wesdtbrrok.  Great player but needs to adjust his style of play, like Kobe did, to get to the next level.

    Westbrook gives away his warm up kicks to a kid before every game so I am a fan just because of that.

    Beginning of career, middle and end were different styles of play.

    It's got my vote.
  • The Clippers never really gelled this year.  I expect them to be better next year.

    Murray went off.

    Jokic controlled the whole game of play despite only having 16pts.  A triple double usually reflects that.  Decent bench play and ball movement.  The Clippers defended Jokic on a double team and he dished it every time.  Whole team was involved.

    Check the +/-, when was the last time you saw Leonard w a -21?!?

    People are giving him a bunch of shit as they should.  His 2015 Clippers team was stacked.  He needs to figure out how to get them over that hump or he will end up being Mark Jackson.

    He should've tried to dunk with 2 hands. He's exposed himself by not having both hands on the ball. If he does Bam may have fouled him?

    Still, hell of a Block.

    Well he has one title, so he won't be Mark Jackson, but blowing this series with that team is not good by any stretch for his legacy.

    He is sure as hell becoming him.  Gifted team and can't get them to the next level?

    He launched too far out for two hands?

    Nobody blocks those kinds of dunks.  That is a highlight real play.

    I was just going by the picture. (It looked like he went baseline.) 

    I saw the replay today and you're right, he did launch too far for 2 hands.

    Another dribble and then the Dunk? How about a little pull-up jumper from about 5-7 feet?

    If he dunked it, which 99/100 times he does, this is a completely different conversation.

    You go strong to the hole, hindsight we know it gets blocked but, you go strong.

    It's just a great play by Bam.

    This play is very worthy of discussion and can be talked about forever.

    Remember Lebrons would be dunk in game 7?  If he doesn't get fouled we'd be talking about that dunk rather than his "chase down" block from behind.
