I agree. A lot of folks said if Gallinari didn't overexaggerate so darn much, the refs might have actually given him the call LOL.

it's funny watchin the lakers sometimes. Seems like whenever Kobe and Pau miss a shot in traffic, they always look over to the refs with their arms up.

Sigh. I'd hoped the Bulls would at least get some playoff experience but with their #1 and #3 best players out.....not going to happen.

Oh well, hope Rose recovers fully.

So there are how many players injured this playoffs? And not little ones but major injuries. Sterny says its just coincidence and has nothing to do with packing in games at a 1 game to every 1.8 day ratio. I have never been a fan but I like most of what he has done to get the league where it is. That said this season almost seems like punishment for the players stance during the lockout.

Yep. I'm just really happy with the team and know that they will heal up and be a threat next year.

They are still young and improving and have tons of trade ammo if they need to make some moves. Sometimes crap happens.

I agree with you. With a lot of players coming into the season out of shape, and Stern was asking them to play 4, sometimes 5 games a week. Just too much.

Anyone who comes out of the West is fine by me, just as long as the Thunder don't win the championship.

Spurs, Lakers or Clippers, it doesn't matter to me.

Just outta curiosity, why don't you like the Thunder? They're led by one of the most humble, down to earth stars in kevin Durant. Westrbook, who needs a chill pill sometimes but is a good point man, James Harden who is clutch, Ibaka who leads the NBA in blocks.

They're young, explosive, and fun to watch.

I hate them because.....

Durant looks like a skinny tribal hunter.

Westbrook looks like the Grinch with a basketball.

Harden looks like a black jesus.

Yes, I am a black guy.
