    No, that's just Raymond Felton.

    Blake Griffin averages 3 points per 4th quarter? WOW

    They really need to give Joe Johnson the Geritol player of the year

    Somebody needs to tell Raymond Felton to put down the Big Macs

    Does it actually count as a choke, when they trailed for basically the whole second half?

    That was a fun finish to watch. This is the time of year that they signed Joe Johnson for. He could be huge for them throughout the playoffs. I just hope Gobert is ok.

    Only if they are the number 4 seed at home ;)

    Nice win for the Jazz and that defense looked good even with Gobert not playing. I hope the Big Fella will be OK to play going forward.

    Well, I mean, their opponent's best player hurt his knee almost immediately after tip-off so yeah

    I've spent most of this quarter of basketball convinced that Greg Anthony was still relatively recently retired and then consequently horrified when it turned out that he's been retired since 2002.

    Where does the time go?

    I hope and believe that Indy can upset the Cavs.

    The Cavs are old and unfocused.
    It's funny to say that, but they don't play like winners...

    The current Hawks are SOOOO soft...
    They are really not a playoff team in my book.

    Am I missing something (or someone)?

    Lol how the hell was that not a foul? Two guys were laying on Millsap
  18. Kingz19

    Kingz19 New Member

    They're good defensively, on the boards, fairly deep and well coached. I'd say they are a legit playoff team though obviously not a contender...but here they are, playing good defense and leading on the road

    I remember for years I didnt see the Hawk in Atlanta's logo. It used to be the most nonsensical logo to me.

    I think I always looked at it backwards or something and paid too much attention to the backwards C. I thought the logo might have been an open beak. Maybe it's because I was a kid when they switched to the more straightforward(less creative) logo and didn't think about it until they brought it back. I was watching one of their games and they were dribbling up and BOOM.

    "Ohhhhhh! It's a HAWK!"

    I guess... I'm clearly not defining "choke" in the same way that you and @HndsmCelt are. To me, a #5 over a #4 doesn't really count as a choke, unless there was a blown double-digit lead, at some point.

    The Hawks are, basically, what the Kings would be, if they were a letter grade better at every position.

    At this point in their careers, I'd put Garrett Temple above Thabo so at least there's that.

    I know some of you guys are really high on DeAaron Fox but I don't think he'll ever be capable of making plays like John Wall is doing right now. The man was chosen first for a reason.

    Marcus Morris wearing the rags of a conference competitor. Lame..remember when AI got destroyed for wearing a throwback Celtics jersey?

    Also, Thomas Robinson holding down the chairs on the sideline. Making sure they don't fly away. You have to like the dedication.Playoffs or not...T-Robs season never ends

    And, man, the Wizards are decidedly not as awesome without Wall out there.

    I think Washington makes the conference finals.

    With the 6th pick the Kings select Ben McLemore

    And then came McCollum, Schroeder, and of course Giannis
  28. Kingz19

    Kingz19 New Member

    McCollum. Wow
  29. Mr. S£im Citrus

    Mr. S£im Citrus That's right, I said it! Staff Member Contributor

    Well, hell, how do you think Orlando feels? They could have had Antetokuonmpo or McCollum, too, and all they have to show for the guy they did pick is Terrence Ross.

    The league should just be grateful that Cleveland didn't get Antetokuonmpo. Imagine if Cleveland had had Kyrie Irving, Tristan Thompson, Andrew Wiggins and Giannis Antetokuonmpo, and then LeBron decided to go back home?! He could have said, "**** Kevin Love," and just created a dynasty with those guys.

    EDIT - I don't know why I thought his name was "Anthony Wiggins."

    And nightmare memory of our esteemed owner fist pumping in war room ecstasy as McLemore "fell" to Kings.
