Embid called out Harden after they lost, said he's not the Houston version of Harden and needs to be more aggressive.  Sixers under-perform again.

Grant Williams says "I am a first rounder."  :money:

Tweeners rule.

Celts with 50+ 3 point shots.  Modern hoops.

Luka is the best player in the NBA, and it isn’t even close

Well he was minus 30 last night.  Let's see if he can regroup.

Miami’s defense is smothering Boston, and now Tatum is out with a hurt shoulder. Butler out too.

Dallas now down 3-0, they are completely overmatched against GS's shooters and can't win trying to run 90% of their shots through Luka.

Luke reminds me of an improved Iverson. He can't win by himself and what other star will want to play with someone so ball dominant

Iverson took a ragtag bunch of guys to the Finals one year. Let’s see if Luka can do that. He is still young. They need better shooters around him. Brunson excelled when he was out but they seem unwilling to run the offense through him sometimes now. Don’t think Jason Kidd is much of a coach strategy wise.

FTFY

I actually think Jimmy Butler has been the best in the playoffs is far.

Luka took a ragtag bunch of guys to the conference finals in an era where the league is far better overall than when Iverson played. Brunson is a free agent next year, so we'll see how much he like watching Luka control every play vs. closing to play on a team that moves the ball more. I give Kidd credit for their defense which has looked really good this post season. I think we're seeing the limits of an offense solely constructed around one player

Well I guess you are saying they are not all ragtag.

he's terrific. Giannis is out now, but he played well without Middleton

Brunson is a stud, but the offense runs through Luka. I'd love to have Brunson here in Washington next year.

No money to sign him after they give Beal a super max. And he will want to go to a good team anyway. The Wizards will be drafting another low ceiling guy and scraping the bottom of the barrel for a PG.  Should be fun to try and squeeze into the play in.

Meanwhile, the Heat will turn an undrafted guy or two into solid role players. 4th decade of the rebuild should is probably a little soon to lose faith thought.

About as ugly a 1st half as you can have in a game 5 of tied conference final.

I don’t think either east team will win more than one against GS. Dominant team.

Don’t agree. They will see much better defense than they have seen in the West.
