NBA Playoff Thread
I want to create a thread similar to llperez22's NCAA Tournament Thread. Let's use this thread for all the playoff games instead of creating different threads for each one. I think it's possible, unless of course Quincey magically reappears and screws things up :-)
OJJ, you crack me up. Let's hope this just does not turn into an off-topic joke fest.
First question: Will Lebron get a triple-double in game 1?? My Answer Yes.
LeBron getting a triple-double is always a very real possibility.
Bulls-Cavs are underway. I'll be back later, seeing as how ESPN360.com doesn't like Northern New Jersey, and I also don't have a computer and a T.V in the same room, unlike some of you other folks who wipe their ass with $5 bills.
OJJ, I am quite offended by that last comment about wiping one's ass with $5 bills. I wipe my ass with toilet paper that looks like money, but not real money.
im so broke, i collect 5 dollar bills that other people have used to wipe their ass.
llperez hahahahahah that was good, I cracked up.
haha, yeah i have to give myself a point for that one too, lol.
well, so when does the next game start? Bulls fought valiantly for a good 3-4 minutes. Hint to teams spending money on this summers free agent class, brad miller as your starting center is not a good thing.
5:30, I believe. Hawks vs. Bucks.
I feel really bad for Brad Miller he is getting abused.
Hakim Warrick is getting some playing time, Lebron is defending him very good in the post
the Bulls ran 3 straight post isolations for him, nobody cutting or nothing, and no rebounding
one time Warrick tried to leak out like a 3
nobody rebounded the ball and Cavs got the ball back for a Lebron lob.
Warrick cannot play the 3 and get out and run if they have nobody rebounding!
Bulls have no fast break :(
no rebounding=no fast break, right?
No rebounding = no fast break. If you can't rebound or play tough defense, your chances of winning are nil.
The only reason why the bulls made that small comeback in the second half was because LeBron wasn't in the game. Since LeBron came back in the game, the Cavs have started to pull away again.
LeBron's "goonies" really came to play today. He had a "modest" game, but Jamison and Williams shot the ball well. Varejao did a great job off the bench as well.
Honestly if the Cavs didn't blow huge leads last year against the Magic they would've been in the finals. I just hope they don't repeat that kind of performance this year.
all right, i predicted the bucks to beat the hawks this series. Lets see if im correct. Lets go Gadzuric!
Dan Gadzuric still plays for the Bucks????
dan had am onster game the last game of the season when they needed a win over boston trying to get that 5th seed. Lets see if he can keep it up now tha bogut is out.
Brandon Jennings is a relatively bad defender.
Jamal Crawford is a MONSTER. As usual.
The Bucks hae no matchup for Josh Smith.
John Salmons looks like the John Salmons that played for the 76ers.
Hawks up by 15.
damn, bucks look bad. These hawks look nothing like last years hawks who looked bad in the playoffs. As for the bucks, man they dont have anything going for them. They arent even playing defense either.
I love it that Mike Woodson has Teague in defending Jennings.
this game is ugly. Jennings is the only one really contributing for the Bucks.
Ha ha... I like the new user name. Are you sure it shouldn't be "BrandonRoysKnees" though lol?
Should be the PortlandTrailBlazersKnees.
Joe Johnson isn't real aggressive sometimes, but I love the pace he plays at. He can change speeds well, and he knows how to use his body. On top of that, he has a solid shooting touch.
Username would be too long for me to type everytime I log in.
I agree with you. I don't know what to call it, but I like the way he dribbles past his defender and keeps the defender behind him with his body... Then he stops and pulls up after a few hesitation dribbles. He's great at that.
Man Jennings is the only one doing sh*t they are going to get murdered unless salmons have a big second half but even with bogut bucks will be playing a hard series but jennings is hot right now
Jennings found his touch again. Other than that, this Bucks-Hawks game is hideous. I hope that Miami-Boston is better than this. There's nothing worse than watching a crappy game with a good meal in front of you.
Lol... I was thinking the same thing... "Damn... I should've waited to order the wings until the next game."
Yeah, I am having some good pizza right now. At least I will save one slice for the next game. When Jennings is on watching him shot is a pretty thing. I am being bias b/c I am a lefty as well.
What's that rookie playoff debut record again? I think Jennings could break it tonight.
Yea... I chose between Jack's Pizza and Just Wing N It... I chose Wing N It lol. They rose the prices though... I could smack em. .50 cents for a damn small cup of ranch.
When jennings is hot he can shoot pretty form but im ready for the jazz and nuggets came i think its going to be the best series and i told yall earlier this year deron williams is the best point guard i know chris paul been injured but i think deron williams has leap frog him to the number 1 spot
.50 cents for a small cup of ranch that's blasphemous. Those wings better be damn good then.
i got a bag of wings in the freezer right now. But i was waiting for later, lol. Wings and playoffs is a must under my roof.
I''m having my customary Philly cheese steak with curly fries from my favorite deli. You know you eat out too much when you walk into your favorite deli and the guy behind the counter doesn't even ask you what you want anymore.
Man, I always order in from the same pizzeria and they know my address and order as soon as I call.
Yea... They're fire. Hot Honey BBQ with ranch dressing. I thought about buying some frozen ones and just making my own... Definitely would've been cheaper lol. I could've bought a whole bottle of ranch for the amount I paid for two small ranch cups. Damn... I guess these are the outrageous things being tired and lazy make you do.
Yo it's the NBA playoffs it's an exception for laziness.
Lol. What's the best pizza place in NY? I've never tasted NY pizza. I'm a pizza maniac. Jack's Pizza is the best place in Indianapolis and they know exactly how I like my pizza. I call and they're like, "Is it going to be pepperoni, sausage and banana peppers?"
Well, one of my childhood friends moved from where we grew up to Brooklyn and he introduced me to this place called Di Fara's. The guy makes the pizza in front of you and is amazing, he grows basil out of his window sill. He is like an 80 year old italian man who makes amazing pizza. Zagat rated, rated as the best pizzeria in the city before, etc etc. I have only had it once, but next time I see him I am going to get some. One thing about New York City is if something is really good, the line will go around the block, that's no joke.
Wow... I'm jealous. The way you described that just sounds good lol. A man who makes pizza with the basil he makes outside of his window sill. Sounds like something that'd only happen in New York.
Yes, I am jealous of my friend because he can go whenever he wants since it is close by. Tezo have you ever been to NY??
Nope... I want to though.
You guys are making me hungry. Anyone else watch diners drive ins and dives? I love that show.
Tezo when Butler comes to the Garden (it'll happen) we'll meet up. When does Butler's schedule come out, I want to come out to Indiana to see them and Hinkle. To me going to Hinkle is one of those things you have to do before you die if you love basketball.
Jennings is going to break Derrick Rose's playoff debut for points record.
I've never heard of that show. What's it about and what channel does it come on?
@knicksfan7. I'll have to find out when their schedule comes out. When is the best time to visit New York?
