    Where is Section, not posting or no interest in basketball?

    I have a couple of bets to offer him.

    First one?? Sixers Heat.

    Dont be scared, young man.

    You shut your mouth, we've suffered enough! :(

    I think that would literally make me wish for a Doc Rivers hire, his son and his sons crappy contract and his perinally sore throat. :001_rolleyes:

    Sixers will run away with this series, I will be surprised if the Heat don’t get swept.

    Spo might be the only coach/player franchise who ever got BETTER once LeBron parted ways with them.

    So much for Crow.... the three ball is too deadly and average Dragic showing why it’s bad to have him as your top scorer/option. He is above average and nothing special at all. Philly has too many scorers. Heat stand no chance, especially with the Embiid return.

    Yep. It’ll continue as long as Riley and Spo keep refusing to admit that this isn’t 1995 anymore. It’s all about the shooting.

    Whiteside should be traded away this off season if possible. Just not useful in today's NBA. Then try to get Leonard next off season.

    I wish it was that easy. Who the hell is going to want Whiteside? Why would Leonard want to come here? We’re barely a playoff team.

    Theres no heat fan in you. Sorry bud but youre a fan of one team and one team only. This Knicks/Cavs fan **** that fin o pulls isnt genuine.

    Youre a sixers fan, and im not worried at all.

    Whiteside is mentally weak, and only going against Embiid is going to bring out the best in whiteside.

    You think the sixers are going to shoot at that rathe this whole series? You better hope so.

    Heat were brusing these young bucks to a 12 point lead in the 1st, and a 6 point lead at the half.

    They better throw some bows or ill get in there and knock simmons ***** *** no shooting *** off the court.

    Lol keep on believing in a bunch of mediocrity bro. It’s gonna be a sad series for ya.

    And I am a BIG fan of both. Don’t be salty because I choose to root for the team that is setup for a better postseason run and that isn’t the Heat by a long shot. I have ZERO belief that those guys can even make it to the ECF.

    The halftime inplosion was foreseen by anyone with half a brain. We made so many defensive mistakes in the first half and repeated it in the second half and philly made us pay for it. Had not been for some hot shooting in the first half we could have lost by 50, thats how unprepared we came into the game.

    Whiteside was absolutely useless out there, had no idea what to do or where he should be on the court.

    I'm a Knicks fan. Always have been...

    Is their some crime that I also root for LeBron and the Cavs during the playoffs?

    I'm sure you had a team you started rooting for deep in the playoffs ever since LBJ left, if not?? You must not like playoff basketball.

    Dion Waiters was having an Oladipo-type coming out party before he ****ed up his ankle. Hopefully he comes back to full strength or we could be ****ed.

    Personally, I think the talent gap between Phi and Miami is quite big....they simply got a bad draw.

    My point was every team's fan base overreacts one way or another after a first game blowout. If they get blown out again then panic switch. I still believe in this team's ability to give the 76ers a good run at least. Obviously they have the better talent, but we have the better coach.

    Harden (19 pts, 5 assists) and Capela (20 pts, 9 rebs) carrying the team thru the first half.

    I need Paul and Gordon to wake the f'k up.

    Not for nothing Minnesota is not a typical 8 seed. I expect y’all to have some struggles this series...not lose it but it’s going to be a bunch of close games and you MAY lose a game or two. Butler KAT Wiggins and Teague is a very strong core that’s going to going to defend. That’s troublesome for a team relies on two ball dominant players to involve everyone else. And if Butler who is a top 15 or so player in this league doesn’t miss like 20 games they’re probably back in the 4-5 range instead of 8 seed where they landed.

    Harden and Capela won that pretty much by themselves.

    Very disappointed in Chris Paul. That was pathetic. Get it together.

    Tom Thibodeau should be shot, then fired, for what he did with that game. How are you running your offense through Rose and Dieng (USG%) while barely using KAT and Butler comparatively? I wouldn't be surprised if they called Fizdale and told him to hold off for now. Let NYK hire Jerry Stackhouse.

    I had a feeling the twolves would make it tough on the rockets in game 1. I still think the rockets win in 5. Harden is a man on a mission, he is different this year than any other year ive seen him play.

    This wont be easy tho, and i dont think any team competing for a championship would want it easy
