Re: 2020 NBA Season

You have the Lebron-lovers now out in force saying if he wins it this year with this Lakers team and gets his 4th ring that he should be elevated above Jordan, based on the idea that this Lakers team is basically him, Davis, and not much else. What they're also missing is that this Lakers team, for...

Re: 2020 NBA Season

Like what one of my Laker friends said after the game, "Lakers are still the Lakers, and the Clippers are still the Clippers". However, I mentioned that it has been awhile since the Lakers were winning. Two things I look forward to in the playoffs every year. 1) How the Blazers do, and 2) How the Cl...

Re: 2020 NBA Season

We'll see - Kawhi let some series go the distance last year as he slogged through the Eastern Conference. We'll see what he does in Game 7. Meanwhile, the Lakers get some extra rest after coasting through the first two rounds of the supposed grind of the Western Conference. Might tip the scales for...

But items fans were happy about were the increase of the size of Montana on the front.
Now that the jerseys read Montana in big letters, does that mean you are going to leave your state flag at home now?

None of those teams had Kawhi on them. I don't know if you've noticed Kawhi this year but he's a pretty above average player. He might have an impact. :coffee:
They're still the Clips. Smart money on "Chubby Tubby" and the rest of the Nuggets. :nod:

Re: 2020 NBA Season

I fear this is the time, though, when the Western conference becomes a snore for a round - I just don't see either LA team being challenged until they face each other. On the Eastern side, Boston and Miami are both looking like tough teams to play - lot of moxy from both teams. And I don't like eit...

Re: 2020 NBA Season

Sure thing is the Clippers always find a way to shoot themselves in the foot. Kiss of death is bringing in former Eastern Conference All-Star Paul George who fizzled out in the first round last year on Lillard's "bad shot" (George's first taste of Western Conference playoff basketball). Think that ...

Re: 2020 NBA Season

Just like the Blazer playoff series, LeBron tried to turn back the clock 10 years and play like 25 year old LeBron. He can't do that anymore. Lakers do better when Davis is the #1 option and LeBron is #2. Davis has more of an advantage over the Rockets than he did over Nurkic. When the Lakers (and ...

NBA makes a stand as the Milwaukee Bucks boycott game, the other NBA playoff games postponed. The only problem with that is, most of the racist in this country don't watch the NBA anyway.

Re: 2020 NBA Season

Every team had "the process" So much truth in that part. Every team in every sport has gone through their own "process" in one way or another. For the Blazers, our "process" began with the dismantling of the "Jail Blazers". Roy/Aldridge/Oden was supposed to bring us out of it. Now we're relying on ...

20 games, 16 started. He's a roll of the dice, even if he goes first round. Granted, most college QB's are rolls of the dice for the NFL, but he has the size and physical attributes that match the NFL well. Still, he's pretty raw. That is true. It depends on the situation they are coming in to. I h...

In past series, the underdog wins one of the first two to "steal" home court and then they only have to "hold on" to home court to win the series.
