    Told you the Nets were going to go on a big winning run. Ben Simmons is starting to look like his old self. I’m sticking with the nets winning the east.

    Watching this Lakers vs Celtics game. I’m sure it’ll come down to the wire. Been entertaining so far. Lakers definitely looks solid at times but giving up the lead before the 4th. Idk why Lebron randomly throws up reckless 3’s like he’s good at it. I’d lose my s--- if I was a lakers fan.

    skip brings this up all the time. lebron has one of the worst 3-point percentages in the league but for whatever reason he takes a lot of 3-point shots. every now and then he'll get hot, but for the most part he usually shoots terrible from 3-point land. skips main point is that when lebron takes all those 3's its too many bad possessions for the lakers.

    i watched lakers vs celtics last night too. the lakers got screwed. that was obviously a foul on lebron at the end of regulation. but that's just the nature of sports. from time to time, you're gonna have clear and obvious bad and/or no calls.

    i thought pat bev bringing a camera onto the court and showing the ref that lebron was fouled was really funny, but at the same time it's not cool because it's showing up/disrespectful to the referees.

    Went to the game last night. LeBron was on his knees for at least 60 seconds. Still the goat tho

    Skip is right on this take, whether Lebron fans like it or not. He was 149th out of 150 ranked in 3 points. You can’t go 1-8 or 1-9 from 3 like Lebron does a lot. Even when he makes a couple I wouldn’t consider it being hot, that’s just what the average shooter would do. I think he wanted to get good at something other than driving to the rim the older he gets. I believe he’d be better off trying to make mid range point shots more consistently over 3’s.

    Oh yeah the lakers got screwed big time. Idk how the refs could miss that foul, or like the announcers said what’s really the point of having a challenge and needling replays when you couldn’t replay the final play. Feels like lakers had a ton of those games where they should have won the last few seconds or gave it up. Anytime it goes to OT, i automatically assume the opposing team is going to win. Lakers completely drained by then.

    Lakers got screwed obviously and @ Boston it's a tough loss and I should be pissed...

    but I feel like the regular season is more pointless than ever, especially for a team like the Lakers with veterans like Bron/AD leading the way. 10 teams make the play in/playoffs, that's basically every team that isn't tanking. Lakers fell short last year cuz they were horrendous and losing like 5 of every 6 games for a while there..but this year they'll be fine, I'm not worried bout 1 extra loss..doesn't really matter tbh. They'll be in the play in/playoffs mix and that's all that really matters from this season, so f--- last night. I'm over it.

    f---, Kyrie why would you leave the nets. I don’t see how this is a fair trade and the league allows it. Should have just paid him what he wanted and with Durant they were looking dangerous before getting hurt.

    Coming from a Yankees and dolphins fan who lives in Jersey. The nets are the only New York team that I rooted for. The Mets hype was just to set tone riggz up. Mainly a Kyrie fan. I do throw up the C in New York, I earned the right. What set and block do you throw up in jersey?

    Lebron about to pass the all time scoring record. He looks consistently good for 38.

    changed my mind, Lakers aren't getting in this year. If so that's reallllyyyy pathetic to miss even the play in 2 years in a row when you have Bron/AD..Inexcusable regardless of the injuries and poor roster construction.

    watching the lakers play the clippers. I wanted to see how Westbrook does. Clippers out playing the lakers so far. Curious to see if they make a 2nd half comeback.

    what a great first playoff game for de-aaron fox. steph has obviously made plenty of amazing shots- but last night he hit one in the corner with about 3 minutes and some change in the 4th that had me shaking my head.

    as far as the 1st round goes--i'm more interested in watching the western conference--that side should be a lot more interesting. the only series in the east that's gonna be competitive is cavs vs. knicks
