Harden:

Is this more suited for the Indiana Pacers?

#406 Posted by vguy555 (4625 posts) -

The Pacers are going to need Hibbert to show up if they do get past this first round. The dude is 7'2, surely they can run some plays and get him some easy dunks, even Chandler can score off wide open dunks in the pitiful Knicks offense.

I recommend Hibbert do some major work out this offseason regardless how this season ends.

Why the Hawks have to get my hopes up?

#409 Posted by Bikouchu35 (7539 posts) -

......wow, survived the Roaracle for now.

#410 Posted by Seabas989 (10695 posts) -

What happened to Roy Hibbert?

#411 Edited by Master_Live (15304 posts) -

Hibbert needs to starts Game 4 on the bench.

#412 Edited by Seabas989 (10695 posts) -

Tough loss. You gotta make those free throws Wall.

#413 Posted by Seabas989 (10695 posts) -

Houston still alive.

#414 Posted by Chutebox (37894 posts) -

Fuck me, basketball thread used to be active during playoffs. This is just sad.

Sad times. The entire board is dead too.

PO is off to a good start too.

#416 Edited by blaznwiipspman1 (6085 posts) -

great game for houston vs portland. Got to say the rookie troy daniels pulled a fast one. Jeremy lin, d howard, beverly, asik all did really well. Parsons and harden need to get better. Also lin needs to stop making dumb mistakes like that missed layup!! How is that even possible lol. Still he has alot of potential, his team mates all have alot of faith in him, and thats easy to see .

I blame the new GS and the Lakers and Knicks organization.

What you mean Duh? Or speaking out as a Warriors fan?

It was a joke, I don't how it can be more obvious than that.

It would be foolish to think what Sterling said doesn't have any affect on the players. Not that it should be a deal breaker, but I'll blame them if the Clips boycott.

Are you a clippers fan? I didn't know they exist! Besides me of course if you read any of my previous post hurr, red and blue since 05.

#423 Posted by PSP107 (12091 posts) -

@Bikouchu35:

Usually people end a joke with a /s or something.

#424 Posted by mems_1224 (47859 posts) -

I hope this is what gets Sterling thrown out of the league. Not only is he a horrible person but he's a horrible owner too. Those players deserve better.

lol,

1. Did you hear the audio tape?

2. I just saw the photo and people say she's mixed.

Yes, it was the dumbest argument between two people I've ever heard. She is mixed, that doesn't mean he can't be racist. This isn't the first time he's done shit like this.

she has black in her.

@PSP107: And? People can be racist/hateful towards a group as a whole and have made exceptions in their mind with the "you're one of the good ones" mentality. Donald Sterling has been a rumored racist long before any of this anyway, but hearing it from his mouth in action may be a tipping point. Also girlfriend might be a strong term for this woman considering that Sterling is married and this woman is clearly at least 5+ decades younger.

lol "you're one of the good ones"

Anyway, so Magic Johnson is not one of the good ones?

#430 Edited by Seabas989 (10695 posts) -

Sterling is a racist idiot. GF was a golddigger but Sterling was the one that said all that.

I see a mass exodus next season by Clippers players. Who's gonna want to go there?

#431 Posted by PSP107 (12091 posts) -

Even though its favor the Bulls(and they should/better take advantage), Nene getting suspended is odd because McRoberts didn't get suspended for his blow to James.

#432 Edited by Master_Live (15304 posts) -

Racism will only leave Donald Sterling heart's when he is dead. There is nothing that Adam Silver can do about that.

Plus it would be so funny if the Clippers won the Title.

#433 Posted by Master_Live (15304 posts) -

I bet a $1,000,000 fine or something over $3,600,000. The highest individual fine in NBA history has been $500,000 and for a team $3.6 M. Community outreach/sensitivity training. Barred from attending any playoffs games for the rest of 2014. Then a suspension for the whole 2014-2015 season.

Long term strategy is to get Sterling to relinquish power or, preferably, sell.

#434 Posted by yokofox33 (30138 posts) -

I got Chicago, Golden State, Brooklyn, and Portland winning today.

#435 Posted by Seabas989 (10695 posts) -

Great half by the Wizards. Good thing the team is used to playing without Nene during the regular season when he was injured.

#436 Edited by mems_1224 (47859 posts) -

Can't wait for the Rockets to finish imploding tonight.

#437 Posted by Seabas989 (10695 posts) -

No Nene? No problem. 3-1 Wizards.

#438 Posted by Bikouchu35 (7539 posts) -

**** way down at the half. I'd call it game, half the team clearly don't give a fly.

#439 Posted by Boston_Boyy (3987 posts) -

Clippers came out distracted today, no matter what they say in the post-game.

#440 Edited by sherman-tank1 (8175 posts) -

Interesting twist in legality.

http://www.dmlp.org/legal-guide/california-recording-law

Sterling must give consent for the wiretapping.

#441 Posted by PSP107 (12091 posts) -

I wonder if Thibs is overrated? If Dantoni gets rips for not caring about defense, should Thibs get ripped for offense?

#442 Edited by mems_1224 (47859 posts) -

Turned the game on and Howard already getting a tech on some BS call...this is gonna be a long night

#443 Edited by yokofox33 (30138 posts) -

The refs have been terrible. Not just this Houston/Portland game, but most of these playoffs.

#444 Posted by mems_1224 (47859 posts) -

Dammit. LA is starting to get into a groove. Rockets can't stop him.

#445 Posted by Seabas989 (10695 posts) -

Lamarcus Aldridge is killing the Rockets. Houston is done.

Guess you were right.

Can you predict the lottery?

#447 Posted by Boston_Boyy (3987 posts) -

@sherman-tank1: Don't know that will effect much of anything the damage is done and this is a case in the court of public opinion, not the courtroom. Besides, Sterling will only fan the flames if he actually pursues this case legally.

#448 Posted by yokofox33 (30138 posts) -

RIP Dr. Jack Ramsay. Great NBA legend.

#449 Posted by Master_Live (15304 posts) -

Man, talk about overkill, I'm already tired of the Sterling controversy. Silver please put Donald out of his misery.

#450 Posted by Boston_Boyy (3987 posts) -

@Master_Live: Hopefully that's what tomorrow's press conference does. I just saw ESPN air Doc Rivers' conference call live ffs.
