    I'm watching - was contemplating a thread. Interesting Toronto/Brooklyn series with the Nets seemingly tanking to avoid the Bulls. My thought was that you can't tank and thrive, but they beat the Raptors in game one. Hard not to root for Golden State, with David Lee going against Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and the Clippers. GS gets game one! Hoping for a great playoffs and will be esp fun to watch Joakim and his Bulls, along with CP and his Rockets.

    Every time I post NBA threads, everyone comes in and talks about how horrible the NBA is.

    Pacers are down 11 to the Hawks with 5min left in the 3rd. Just switched it on and don't see big Al. Is he injured, or just getting a blow?

    Eh, ignore it. I'm not a huge NBA fan, but these guys are amazing athletes. And the playoffs make for good TV.

    He's been out with an injury for awhile.

    Thanks Allanon and Bedlam. I've been out of the NBA loop, but am ready to dig into some playoff basketball. Hawks get the upset in game one.

    Hawks beat them down. They'd be a thread for the conference finals with Horford. No one's really a threat to the Heat, though. Sad how bad the East is.

    Thunder looking great so far.

    Clips-Warriors going to be a great series.

    Poor Mike Miller is out there against a lineup of Durant-Westbrook-Jackson-Butler-Ibaka and he's stuck guarding Westbrook. It hasn't been pretty. He's -20 in 15 minutes. Coach needs to put him in when OKC is playing Perkins.

    Still early, but if the Pacers get eliminated by the Hawks, it will be one monumental collapse. At one point they were playing like the best team in the league.

    I'm a Warrior's fan so I've been able to watch Lee for years. Dude is a nifty finisher in the paint.

    Warrior's are relevant for the first time in two decades under Mark Jackson, yet it looks like the owner wants to fire him. It's his team so he can do what he wants, but I have a problem when you are sitting behind your coach on the sidelines doing this. It's a dick move.

    Actually, Lee put up a double-double in the second half alone.

    He threw his assistants under the bus and makes weird lineup decisions. Plus they play way too much 1 on 1 for the amount of offensive talent they have. He is gone if they don't beat the clips

    GS had their winningest season in 20 years in spite of Bogut, Lee, and Iguodala each missing more than 15 games. When intact, the GS starting 5 had the 3rd best winning percentage in the NBA. The term "throwing under the bus" means to pass the blame on to someone else. There doesn't seem to be much blame to throw around here. e

    The players have his back. It will be interesting to see what happens if they do beat the Clippers and lose in the next round to OKC (assuming OKC gets there).

    Tim Duncan is an ageless wonder.

    Clearly, he doesn't waste energy with unnecessary activities such as changing facial expression. Night of the Living Dead made a big impression on him as a teenager.

    Hahaha, you're just a hater.

    Edit: That was said tongue in cheek and not seriously.
