    Le Bron left the court again six minutes before game ends.. that's who he is and always has been..
    When he knows it's over yes.  He has done that and he knows when to let go.  He checked out 2 games ago.  He knew it was over.

    Why he didn't be more aggressive may have to do something with the above statement.  He knew he couldn't do anymore after this round.

    The whole Suns team played lights out.  3 after 3 after 3.  You can't let a team get 3-3's in a row and not at least get 2.  That is a 9-0 run and tough to make up.

    Congrats to the Suns and Booker.  Kid can ball and the world got to see it finally.

    Other game.  Jokic and company can ball.  Those guys find a way.
    He didn't shake hands with winners again.. that says a lot..
    Not the first time he has done that.

    Celtics did that, Pistons did that.  I can go on and on about who didn't shake hands.

    I also think halting it because of covid is going to make it more normal moving forward. 
    You'll still see coaches and some players "dap up" and chat but the traditional hand shake line is going to be a thing of the past in the nba

    Poor Lebron. He's got a little bubble championship, of which I'm not 100% certain actually happened, mixed in with a non playoff year and a first round exit. Beat it!

    You know what I mean.  They aren't getting out of this round w/o Embiid.  Which is too bad because I was enjoying them play.

    So we got AD, Embiid, CP3, Luka on the All-Injured List.  Can we add one more and make it a legit team?

    I think they can beat the Hawks without Embiid, but I believe Embiid will play (might miss the first or second game). Obviously will not be 100% though, which will be a problem in the ECF.

    Ha! What a weird comment. He probably will get his like Beal did, but hopefully Simmons and Teese can at least limit him and make him take bad shots.

    Yeah he actually does better against Trae types than Ben does. One of Ben’s.....I don’t want to say weaknesses, but he doesn’t excel quite as much as we’re used to seeing against short, super quick guards. That one game against the Kings early in the season is a great example, Fox was starting to cook against Ben but then Thybulle came it and absolutely destroyed him.

    Willis Reed was also a 2nd rounder and won the MVP in 1970, but Jokic is the lowest draft pick to ever win.

    Jazz are for real this year.  They have been my pick to go to the finals after everyone got hurt in the first round.  I am still amazed how well they are playing.  Congrats to Gobert for his 3rd DPOTY.
    Clippers look off.  Like really off.

    Nets/Bucks game was a fun one to watch.  A security guard ran onto the court to break up the players from fighting.  Never saw that before?  I think he gets fired, lol?

    Very low scoring game but it was definitely fun.  I don't think the Bucks win another game though.

    Yeah the Bucks look like they are spent after that one. I thought it was a tough one to watch. Nice close game, but just a lot of bad offense and horrible officiating yet again. Giannis is such a bad free throw shooter. Van Gundy was right when he said he needs to change up his routine. It's awkward watching him take up the full ten seconds only to brick or toss up an air ball.

    So you've finally come around the Jazz? They're one of the better shooting teams you'll ever see.

    Every year, like the Bucks, they were great during the season then get destroyed and have an early exit or just can't make it past that one team.

    Watching them this year they are playing so much better.  It passes the eye test.

    Oh and I like the defensive play.  Was shocked to see Giannis get blocked on the baseline.
