so let's see these last two games, their youth cost them the game, the one thing everyone always seems to compliment them on, young guns.... that shit can work against you as well..... just shows the inexperience they still have, Harden last game and Westbrook this game..... they still in their early 20's, got lots to learn

but I gotta say they're heading in the right direction, from what I saw last years playoffs they're much better this time around...
When the Heat win this chip, I'm sure they're smart enough to know they don't wanna see the Thunder again in next years' finals, they just gonna keep getting better....

I see an amateur team for the 2nd straight game.

First Harden with unnecessary foul, which his flop backfired on him. Westbrook not mindful of the clock. Durant doesn't even get the ball until the last 13 seconds.

Not if Westbrook/Durant turns into Marbury/KG

I can see it happening. Very soon.

-heard the ESPN commentator Michael Wilbon ask Commissioner Stern during game 3 about whether the league will do anything about players flopping.

The commish said a definitive "Yes", that the league will do something about next season to reduce the amount of flopping in games.

What do you think Stern means in terms of league addressing the flops? -give referees the power to call a foul on the player flopping?

The thunder still have alot of growing up to do in many ways. Lebron is currently the best all around player in the NBA and deserves a championship this year. OKC will get theirs...

The Wizards have traded Rashard Lewis and the No. 46 pick in the 2012 draft to the Hornets, in exchange for Emeka Okafor and Trevor Ariza.

Lewis is owed $23.7 million in the final year of his monumental contract, but the Hornets can (and probably will) buy him out for $13.7 million. Meanwhile, Okafor is owed $28 million over the next two years (with a $14.6 million Early Termination Option next summer), while Ariza is owed $14 million over two years (with a $7.7 million player option next summer). The No. 46 pick is little more than a sweetener, but the Hornets now have copious salary cap space and Anthony Davis inbound.

D-Will to NO? Yup, I'm sure that's at the top of his list....

and there's no way PJIII drops to 10; his stock is quickly rising...

The NBA is considering a "retroactive" penalty system to stop players from flopping:

-instant replay expanded to include flagrant fouls and goaltending.

Wall Crawford ariza nene okafor. That's wayyy better than having lewis lol

I'll tell you one fuckin thing the NBA definitely needs, and this is a no brainer I am very surprised the "geniuses" at the head office haven't implemented this.

the need high speed HD cameras that capture the action at high framerates... this would make the referee's jobs lookin at replays a helluva lot easier... anybody that's seen a slow motion replay of some play they're reviewing will know what I'm talking about.... the regular HD cameras just don't shoot fast enough to capture everything 100%


look how beautiful this shit is, find me one referee who wouldn't want these types of cameras implemented

Dwill is not going to the Wizard. Washington already has John Wall.

And I'm ok with a little controversy. Keep the game interesting.

He never said to the Wizards, he suggested that N.O. could potentially sign him...

Dude that is cool,but this instant replay will make a NBA game last like 3 hours because its so super slow motion. It will take more than 5 mins to review a flop or foul

Damn, everyone is a Lebron hater...



NHL Players made their way to twitter last night to Mock LeBron James’ Leg Cramps –“Lebron James is embarrassing himself and the NBA or actually all athletes,” tweeted Ryan Potulny, a forward in the Washington Capitals system.“I wonder what kind of face LeBron would make if he took a slapper off the laces?” wondered former Bruin and current Jet Blake Wheeler.“We get it Lebron, it doesn’t hurt when you’re running around but it looks unbearable when the cameras are close up during the timeouts,” wrote Nick Bonino, former BU player and current Anaheim Duck.$“What a gutsy performance by lebron #not” wrote Dallas Stars defenseman Alex Goligoski. — LeBron can’t win even when he wins. -TO

The Lakers are reportedly trying to make a move to get a first-round pick in the NBA draft.

Sam Amico is reporting that the Lakers are "making real push" to get a first-round pick, and have their sights set on one of two Baylor forwards: Perry Jones or Quincy Miller. What the Lakers would give up is unclear, but based on who they're looking at, it wouldn't be too much.

NHL Players Mock LeBron James
I don't get it when NHL players mock NBA stars. Sure, hockey players take more physical punishment in terms of body checks, blocking pucks, and maybe headshots, but basketball is a physical sport too.

NBA players play the game with less breaks between each game unlike the 30 second to 45 second shift of an NHL player.
Basketball is a physical sport that tests your stamina.

Goligoski should try to skate full speed with leg cramps before he tweets something against LeBron. Idiot! Juwan Howard and another guy helped LeBron off the court.

It's not like the stadium staff brought a stretcher out for him.

^ Sure to whatever you said, I have no opinion on the matter and I don't care to compare the physical aspect of NHL vs. NBA as they are two completely different sports and that debate is pointless....

BUT, as painful as a leg cramp is, and let me tell you, it can be REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY fucking painful.....I would NEVER allow somebody to PICK me up off the ground in the manner shown by that picture unless I had a 2 broken legs and literally could not walk.....like seriously....be a fucking man...

Steve Nash says that he'll consider the Knicks in free agency. -no guarantee that Linsanity signs back with New York either. Interesting.

Nash's reply to ESPN: The Knicks are a great franchise and I live in New York City (each summer), so I’d definitely consider them if they were interested.”
