    Honestly, Westbrook + Harden doesn't sound as bad as it may look on the surface. Let's be real: CP3 is another year older, and while I acknowledge his defense is amazing for his size and position, I can only assume a sharp decline is very near in the future. If you're Morey, you have to shore...

    Folks out there may be expecting my extended thoughts on the Finals matchup but I regret to say that my life and mental state isn't up to par today to preview anything right now. I will say some glancing thoughts I have are: -Siakim's effectiveness in small lineups and effect on Green...

    Eastern Conference Finals Analysis "I'm Wolverine, man. You know Wolverine? I'm Wolverine, except for when I die, I'mma just die" – Kyle Lowry "If I knew he was there, I would have probably gone like this (puts one hand down to protect his crotch) or tried to avoid him. I do not want to hit...

    Western Conference Finals Analysis “But to call it (basketball) pressure is almost an insult to regular people.” – Damian Lillard “I don’t believe I’m better than anyone, but I don’t believe [anybody] is better than me. And I think that’s how a lot of people feel.” – Kevin Durant “I want to...

    Kyrie Irving: wait until the playoffs. Playoffs are my time. I'm the only player on this team who knows how to be a champion. I've played so many playoff games. I'm the best on the team. I'm a leader leading. These young guys just need guidance. Kyrie Irving: *gets outplayed by a damn 33 yo...

    Giannis figured out the Celtic defense, man. His spin moves are killin' 'em. I was clearly wrong about how good this team could be defensively even if they do give up a ton of threes. Also, George Hill.. just suddenly plays like a stud? What is it with Cleveland and making everybody worse...

    Still expect Toronto to win, but Houston is looking like a silly pick right now if only because of the constant whining to the refs and well, they simply lack depth and the ability to beat Golden State when they're truly locked in on defense with small guys. Isolation won't work and I don't...

    (2) Denver Nuggets versus (3) Portland Trailblazers So, Denver’s for real. Or at least real in the sense that they could conceivably make it to the western conference finals. I know I said the lack of Nurkic would have made a big difference in the Oklahoma City series, but we may have to...

    (1) GSW vs (4) HOU Don't really have much time to talk or find something in the stats much for this one. The upset is super tempting though. I'd take it if only because GSW feels extremely off defensively. If HOU wins, it's because they gameplanned way better in something for a game or two. GSW...

    (2) Toronto Raptors versus (3) Philadelphia 76ers What a fascinating match-up. This series has the potential to have like, multiple cross-matches maybe even in one possession. It’ll be a hassle to predict which wings guard who and which wings have an advantage or disadvantage. Let’s start with...

    The 2019 NBA Playoffs have arrived. First things first: it’s sad to see Wade and Nowitzki go. Both have had very rewarding, memorable careers. I am disappointed Miami couldn’t make the playoffs to see Wade one last time, and we’re used to Dallas at this point not making noise for a few years. In...
