Happy for Brooks to get this far. Think his coaching rep took a hit because he couldn't win with Durant and Westbrook.

He's taking some shit today for not playing his subs more, but I didn't think he did a bad job coaching. Did people really want to see more of Kelly Oubre?

If they do get a bench, I think they'll have a better chance of getting to the Conference final.

I don't even want to look at the boxscore for last night, but I know someone or the whole team went for 50% to 60% for 3's last night.

The interesting question is does Boston choose one of the good point guards in the draft? There are three instant starters in Fultz, Ball, and Fox or do they go for position. Sacramento has 5th and 10th pick and I would bet good money they fuck 'em up. It would be funny if they drafted two centers again.

Popovich was merciless last night in post-game. The only one he gave kudos to was Simmons.

36 point difference in game they needed to have. I don't think they win one, even going back to San Antonio.

Aye I read reports, some articles about Aldridge doing a zaza on Durant. Not gonna lie, not gonna watch it. All these blow outs are ruining the playoffs. I wished I liked hockey like Barkley.

I think Boston goes for Fultz because they believe he's the best player in the draft. Jackson or Tatum are considered but are long shots at this point. I don't think if they go for a guard they consider anybody outside of Fultz.
Which means Ball goes to LA! like papa Ball always wanted.

I think Fultz would be angry as fuck if boston drafted him. Who are they gonna bench? Bradley? Thomas? Crowder and then move Bradley to the 3?

They'll get rid of Bradley if they get Fultz. Fultz can play either point or off guard.

I turned on the Cavs/Celtics in the middle of the third and it was already 40 point lead. Maybe they should just cut to Warriors/Cavs.

I've been watching hoops a long time and there have been some dominant teams, but at least there was some competition within divisions.

It's unbelievable how much better the Cavs and Warriors are than other teams. Utah was a 50 win team and got shredded. San Antonio is 60 win team. Yes, they don't have Kawhi, but good god, he didn't do it all himself.
