P.S. Bulls just curbstomped Atlanta....and you said they have no stars? Um, you mean their 5-time allstar doesn't count or their all-star center? Dude, what time is it 4:20?
Send me a message when the 3rd round starts. I can't watch this Hawks team anymore. The coach looks like a well dressed Wino and they have StupidStars not All Stars.

Abandon ship! Abandon ship!

The Bulls DOMINATED Atlanta. I'm not saying they are invincible but DAMN you have underestimated the Bulls at every possible turn. At this point you look foolish.

Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaak.....th at huge choking noise you heard tonight was the Lakers in the 4th quarter of a do-or-die game blowing a decent lead.

Ironic as how I kept hearing about Dallas choking or being under pressure.

Time to add to your "end of an era" thread.

They barely went to Kobe down the stretch too.

I think if the Lakers can avoid a sweep that would make Phil feel a little better

Come on people, credit where credit is due the Lakers have been huge in recent years and nothing can diminish that.

However, you all have to find it pretty hillarious how everyone was calling out Dallas to choke and let's be honest here....that was one of the biggest 4th quarter choke jobs I've ever seen. Where was Kobe to take over the game? Throwing the ball away on an in-bound pass to essentially seal the loss? WTH?

Dallas didn't choke they stepped up and just drained shot after shot.
They ran the Lakers down like a fat kid wearing a backpack.

Losing a 7 point lead with 5 min left is now called a CHOKE????????? Since when is the game out of reach when a team is up 7 with 5 mins left? Please explain to me what you are talking about

Ah, so you have to BEAT a team when the game is out of reach in order for it to be a choke.....in your world.

What truly truly bizarre logic....when by definition the game being out of reach....oh forget it.

How bout the Mavs were just the BETTER TEAM this year? Now if the Lakers were up 7 with 1:45 left and lost then I would say they CHOKED.
