There is no defense for Reggie's stance. But IF THERE WAS ONE, I think a player committing a foul on a 3pt attempt and the 3 going in is higher than time running out on a missed FT LOL. But that is because players are idiots.


In reality, he had to have thought it was a 1 pt game, realized it was 3, and then just went with it anyway. Because up 1, it makes sense. Go up 2, miss on purpose as a full court heave to lose has a much less probability than a make, advance with a pass before clock starts, making a 3 and winning in OT.

Heat should just forfeit the rest of this series.

So sick of hearing losing teams complain about officiating. Philly loses, complains. LA loses, complains. NY loses tonight (after getting multiple beneficial calls allowing them to win game two), complains. What’s the end game? Your team shoots 25 free throws and the other team shoots none?

The whining is never ending. 

Embiid should have been tossed early. That's the only thing I'd bitch about. 


I went to the Nugs/Lakers game 2. Most insane live sporting event I've ever witnessed. I don't really understand LeBron's bitching after  regarding reviews. He doesn't like the process all together? The stopping of the games? That is annoying, but they got the calls right after the reviews.

Because bitching about calls is a lot easier than saying, "This team is not built for legit success and after acting all upset that Denver was a bit celebratory over knocking us out last year and making 'We'll be back; get ready!' kinds of comments, we're not any better, they just ripped our hearts out by coming back from 20 down and we're going to get blitzed out of the playoffs by them again."

They definitely did not get the calls right, which is why he was complaining. The D-Lo one is the one he actively complained about, and it makes no sense and the explaination is horrible. It sets a precedent for the league to just involve punching players lol.

Amazon getting an NBA package is awesome (for me). Hope NBA can wrestle the remaining rights as well.

Should be interesting offseason for Lebron now that Lakers eliminated. He has player option for $51 million which I imagine he takes up. That Lakers team needs a lot of work though. Bronny torn between the draft or transferring elsewhere from USC.

Trade Garland and some pieces for LeBron, and extend Mitchell.

Playoffs are wild. 

Refs are awful at end of Pacers - Knicks.

TWolves killing the Nuggets, looks like they could actually sweep them.

Idk if it’ll happen but NYK vs Thunder in the finals would be awesome. NYK vs anyone would be good.

3 guys scoring 28+ is fun

Pleasantly surprised the Cavs were able to take Game 2, in pretty dominant fashion, after the beatdown they took in the first game.

Just hope they don’t lose the next three by 20+ like the Heat did after they stole game two of that series. 

In other news, Shaq keeps doubling down on his stupid comments to Jokic about winning the MVP.

Pretty much what I'm expecting but nice not to get swept, like everyone was thinking.
