Budenholzer to bucks is a game changer in the east. That's how much I rate him.

Very true.

They mic'd up Draymond last night and you can tell how much he's the captain of that defense. He's one of those guys like LeBron and Rondo, where they know what everyone is supposed to be doing. More than one person said he's destined to be a head coach someday.

Here's past example.

Imagine if he pulled his usual shit against the likes of mahorn, barkley, Oakley, lucas or Xavier McDaniel. He'd shut up and stop kicking players in the balls very quickly. You'd never hear of him.

Green as a coach? you're drinking too much of the cool aid sloop.

Yeah, he was probably the best available coach out there but everyone's judged on results at the end of the day. Still can't be worse than Kidd.

The GM shafted him. He has a 20+ winning streak, then they got rid of all their best players.

I think my favorite part of the night is when Curry yelled out, "This is my fucking house," after sinking one.

He had to walk that back after the game. He said he "blacked out."

Awesome performance. Don't know if Houston have it in them to react.

This was my other favorite moment.

After last night, I think Houston's winning this thing. Especially with two in Houston.

Depends who wins the next one. It's closer than I thought.

I feel sorry for Chris Paul. He's such a competitor that he doesn't deserve his playoff fate the basketball gods seem to give him. I don't want the Rockets to win, but I'd like him to be on the court if they do. For his sake.

People take LeBron for granted. Tonight was an average game: 35 pts, 15 rebounds, 9 assists.

8 years in a row in the finals. That is Russell and MJ territory.

I hesitate to say he's gassed because you think he's gassed and he pulls stuff like that out of his arse. If we make it we have to be a little happy about the effort he's had to put in to get the Cavs over the line.

Teams like the Rockets and the Celtics have to have that "so close you can taste it" moment before they reach the nex level. They are good enough, like Jordan's Bulls were before they beat the Pistons. That's the closest comparison I can think of.

Houston needs a backup point guard.

The Bulls with Jordan were not good though until the other good teams in the East declined and the Pistons was that was left. Up until '89 it wasn't just the Pistons and the Celtics that would wipe the floor with them but also the Hawks, the Bucks, the Cavs, the Knicks etc.
