Edit # 2: Annnnd Lebron chokes!

3 straight free throw misses for Lebron....... can't imagine guys like Jordan, Magic, Bird in their prime screwing up like that.

Eh, Miami got a ton of flop calls as always, bulls are down their second bet player, and the had a chance to win. Not that bad

Yeah, Miami has the veteran stars that know how to draw the fouls. Both Miami and Chicago look improved from last year IMO.

Meanwhile, the west has regressed except for OKC.

I'd probably take the winner of the east to win the championship right now by a slightly imbalanced coin flip.

Oh, they did. Those are also the first 4th quarter ft's rose has missed all year.
Even if a guy is an 80% FT shooter there are going to be days like that.

I have been hearing some bigtime rumors that the Knicks are considering making a push for Phil Jackson if they decide to can D'antoni.

Kyrie Irving with the game winning shot in Boston 88-87 with 2 seconds left.
Boston was leading 76-87 with over 4 minutes left but went scoreless after that.

Irving for ROY!
LET'S GO HOOOOOOMMMMMMME!

The Knicks always have bigtime rumors about every single decent player, coach etc.. I'm surprised that haven't started claiming that Kevin Durant is going to come play for them. Reality is not exactly the Knicks strong suit and every decent player they've managed to get they've had to overpay or overtrade for....there is no mystique.

There is no precedent in Phils coaching history to come to a team this jacked up.

*maybe* if they make him the grand-daddy of all coaching contracts....but even then.....

I'd also see how the Dolan's media rules might chafe him.

Witnessing <> remembering.

Bird did EXACTLY this back in 1986. Note Barkley making the choke sign to Bird after rebounding the 2nd missed FT.

Karl Malone misses 2 at end of game 1 of the finals.

There is more if you dig around.
