Milwaukee and Utah are young teams whose times have been coming for a while now. I liked seeing them both win.

I don't want to jump to conclusions until they're out of the playoffs but this iteration of clippers was not impressive. I don't even know if Melo would consider them an option, I see CP3 jumping ship.

The Bucs look really good. The Greek freak is incredible to watch, like he's only now discovering how much better he is than everyone else out there. Lowry sucking in the playoffs is getting so old. The Bucks will advance.

Im watching Tim Hardaway JR play with confidence in the playoffs. Im seeing he averaged 14 3 and 3 in the regular season. What did we get for him again? Jerian Grant? What happened to him again? Oh yeah.... the Knicks got a rental in Derrick Rose. Basically gave up on another young talent for absolutely nothing. The Knicks cycle continues, thanks Phil. :drunk:

Same, I called it as soon as I saw the match up. The raptors 'stars' to me arent really true stars. Giannis IMO needs to be a little more selfish though. Too many possessions he just gives up the ball and lets other guys try to make plays. He should be more involved in the playmaking. Hes too dominant out there, need to force the Raps to deal with him.

What about their scoring? Do they need an elite scorer like Melo? They can have him for the Nets 2017 pick and Jae Crowder :LOL:

Did you ever watch the 30for30 on Calipari? If not, here's the link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Daur2FNkCpc

I criticize Calipari for not winning chips with the amount of talent he's coached over the years, but I throughly respect him. He's pimping the NCAA system (the NCAA is dirty yet penalizes players and universities when they're dirty) and getting hella paid in the process. Not to mention he's getting players to the NBA which also gets them hella paid.

Around the 1:29:00 mark, Calipari spoke the real when he asked John Wall to "take these guys to the NBA with him."

^^just watched that yesterday, very well done, and they didn't overlook any of the controversies. He was really a horrible pro-coach on the Nets, and IMO, is best suited for only the youngest...freshmen!! grown men don't like being yelled at, but it was nice to see the father-son relationship with Camby.

As Knick fans, it's good to see The Clippers, and Celtics lose(Thomas has no help) and the Cavs struggle. i sense a bidding war brewing this summer.

That was great. I wasn't watching the game but from what I'm reading and what the guys on nbatv were saying it sounds like he has a point.

Agreed. At the time, Calipari didn't have the temperament to coach NBA players and his bond with Camby caught me by surprise as well. I've watched a lot of 30for30 presentations over the years, and this particular one goes up there with some of ESPN's very best.
