    The Knicks... It's like every guy that takes over is trying to destroy the team. I know that's not the truth, but it's just the way it always looks.

    And the only common factor through the years is that faggot Dolan.

    People don't see many great players on the team on paper, but they all play well together, like a real team. Everything worked pretty well all game.

    After the Clips get bounced in the first round do they break up the team or dump Doc Rivers?

    They will split up if they do. They're having this hard of a time facing the Jazz at home without Rudy?

    Man I hope Griffin comes to OKC.

    Eh well I was factoring in salary although that's not what I said. JR Smith is a much better value buy at $14 than Oladipo is ar $21 milly IMO.

    You have to blow it up. Enough is enough. This team can't win together. They can't even get out of the first round. Terrible.

    They have everything they'd need in a pass first point guard that can score, a scoring power forward that can play in the P&R well, a rebounding machine at center, a stretch shooting 2-guard and a defensive minded small forward. Toss in a 6th man of the year (nearly every year) candidate) and you have a recipe for a great team.

    I'm not sure what the problem is. Chris Paul ends up looking like a good to great player that's a career loser.

    Which would all lead back to coaching. Dumping Doc Rivers is the more sensible approach than breaking up a team that has all the pieces to win, as you mentioned.

    What has Rivers ever really done? Only winning one championship in Boston with that team is a greater indictment of him than a positive. That team should have won more even though they ran into the Heat for a couple of years.

    Seeing Toronto get dominated by Giannis and the Bucks were my surprise of the opening weekend.

    I consider them the strongest team in the East outside of CLE, interesting to see they response come game 2.

    I wasn't surprised. They play well against good teams, and are a letdown against bad teams. I didn't expect a win game 1, but it didn't shock me.

    Bucks snuck under radar , had a great March and April. Middleton came in when Parker did his knee and did well. Gianis is a beast. Maker Is learning the trade but can block and swat . Brogdon took his chance when delly was injured .
