    Wade or SHAQ never did all that yapping with street clothes on.

    he tried to be cute and instead came off as somebody that doesn't know what "irony" means.

    Crawl before you walk; this is only the start for Portland.

    Semi's or Conference Finals next year. Book it.

    Young team that will only get better, and I still think Jerryd Bayless is going to be an absolute stud in this league.

    The rest of the West is only getting older, dude.

    it would have been irony if he was talking about people who post on message boards, him saying players in street clothes in a basketball game shouldnt talk trash isnt ironic since he is not a basketball player in street clothes talking trash during a game.

    The NBA really needs to get rid of the 7 game series in round 1. I cant believe we're still in the first round. It feels like they've already played their 40 games in 40 days.

    I hope they win tonight. Should be a great game, the last 6 have been. Whoever wins, gets to play us. Either we go to Boston Monday night, or da Bulls come to Orlando. Whatever happens, as long as Boston does down.:knucks:

    THAT is not Irony.

    Like I and Danny said.

    I am not a NBA player in street clothes.

    Now..if let's say..Joakim Noah got hurt and was in street clothes and said what I said...that would be irony.

    The 1/8 winner plays the 4/5 winner and the 2/7 winner plays the 3/6 winner.

    (CHI / BOS vs. ORL & MIA / ATL vs. CLE)

    Seeding is only relevant in terms of matchup in the first round. I wish you were right, though, as if Miami AND Chicago win... I'd much rather face Orlando than Cleveland.

    Yep. Should be proud of themselves. If they bring the team back they should be even better if Luol Deng gets back into form once healthy. Scary team. They hit this point a few years ago and ruined it all by giving that ridiculous contract to Ben Wallace. Ben Gordon turned down $11 million per season last summer, so you've got to question how much he's going to ask for now. While he's key to Chicago's success, it's questionable whether or not he's worthy of how much loot he'll ask for. I'll tell you one thing about this series; Noah made a believer in me. I gave him no chance of being a starter in this league coming out of the draft a few years back.

    Hopefully we can get another great series or two similar to this one. I think LAL / HOU is a dark horse to be one hell of a series. It's going to be damn physical.

    Yeah, you hardly even heard about Noah until this year, he really stepped up and really played well in the last series. Not so much points, but great defense and rebounds. And that steal and slam on Pierce should make the ESPN top 10 list for this week.

    That isn't fair. Even Wade isn't playing well, and those rookies were a big part of winning game 6.

    Guess you haven't been paying close attention to this series, although I don't blame you. It's been horrible. Aside from Wade, Miami has only gotten decent production game by game from Haslem and O'Neal. James Jones for the most part. That's it. I don't even care if you put Michael Jordan in his prime on that floor today... with the lack of production from teammates, no one is going to have a great game with this supporting cast today.

    If anything, I feel bad for Dwyane Wade. No one deserves to suffer like this while playing so hard on both ends of the floor.

    I wasn't saying the series as a whole. They had a bad series yes, no doubt.

    I just said that they were big in winning game 6, and that game 7 no-one played well pretty much from the tip.

    They're rookies so I don't blame them 100%.

    Kobe back to his *****assness.

    Loses the ball to Battier, fights for it, then gets up kneeing him in the face.

    Poor 3 point shooting pretty much killed us there offensively. Farmar's a better matchup against Brooks and they have to use him. Plus, he hit a key 3 and seemed to be the only one to hit his. Fisher's too old to keep up with Brooks but Farmar has been doing a pretty good job against Brooks defensively back even when they were both in college.

    How about Hawks....

    Wow Kmart is a real douche. He tried to hold him up and keep him from falling. Next time the dallas player should let go and let him fall on his ****ing head.

    :words:

    Interesting since the refs handed the Rockets every call in Game 1....

    Indeed. That's why I prefer Farmar on Brooks. He's locked down on Brooks before.
