    Don't count your cookies before they crumble just yet...

    Heat come from 17 points down to beat the Celtics in Game 2 of the ECF!

    Personally, Boston v LA finals this year doesn't mean anything this year.

    James and AD are too old to face them :LOL:

    the last 4 teams standing are all legit. can't take any of them for granted.. all of them can win the chip.


    of course, its still lakers all the way for me.


    btw, I'm still laughing my a** off at the way the clippers collapsed. :D .. that load management , self entitlement, trash talk of pat bev who was only good at flailing and running around the court, but shooting his mouth off as if the clippers were in the middle of some NBA dynasty...:rolleyes:... karma is a real b*tch... sorry @Roman just couldnt help.. better luck next year, when the clippers finally move to Seattle.. tell Ballmer not to waste his money in LA.. It's Lakertown.. & it already has a KIng.. :)

    @greta87 Err, I don't want to say anything yet...

    Except join you in dumping all over the Clippers. I've been feasting on Clippers memes since yesterday.

    There's an excellent WCF preview on Zach Lowe's podcast, The Lowe Post, with Stan Van Gundy and Zach breaking down the series in delicious detail None of the screaming talking heads stuff, just pure nerdy hoops talk.

    go head to realGM for the most outrageous memes out there about the clippers collapse.. you'll see Spurs fans, raptors fans, Lakers fans, tweets by NBA players themselves.. ...pretty much everyone piling in.. seems like everyone had an axe to grind against kawhi & his clips..

    @greta87, it’s all good, Mannix! Everyone hates my Clippers. Hahaha. I’ve gone from mourning to laughing with the choke memes na.

    I said to myself last year that I didn’t expect them to win the chip this season, but I did expect them to go deep in the Playoffs. I guess that’s where I was wrong.

    Good luck to the Lakers and Nuggets (mga pakshet kayo) tomorrow!

    The slander is just too real... I'm sure it is able to pierce Kawhi's titanium skin if only this once... coming from someone in Toronto who's still bitter over the breakup.

    Game 1 of LA vs DEN got boring in the second half. I fell asleep midway through the last quarter.

    Lakers gonna walk all over this thing...

    Lakers coast to a game 1 victory. I don't think there's gonna be a third come-from-behind series for Denver. It's blowouts like this that make me wish they faced the Flippers instead.

    Does anybody even take this guy seriously? All bark, fake hustle and zero contribution to the game.

    Now the fun part...

    An Antetokounmpo might go home with a ring this year...
    An Antetokounmpo will be a free agent after next season..

    ha ha.. Ok lang yan.. i'm used to it. everyone hates the lakers. especially during the Kobe years.. the test for the clippers is how do they bounce back? maybe they can pull off a trade for PG.

    i think that guy is done. permanently damaged. won't manifest itself during the regular season but only during the playoffs. when the chatter becomes louder & gets to his head once again. plus, the clippers need a real PG. ( point guard ). he he.


    anyway, for this year's lakers . there's something about this team that sets it apart from the rest. reminds me of the 2001 shaq-kobe team. lots of confidence. just the right mix of athleticism, length and veteran experience.. lebron & rondo provide a calming presence & the focus needed to win it all. barring any injury, i think this team goes all the way.

    ^Agree! I think it's inevitable that the Lakers are going to win it all.

    So, I'll just enjoy the ECF between Miami and Boston since that might turn out into a more exciting and satisfying series.

    Don't need to stay up late watching the Finals!

    A win is a win, no matter how or by how much. I'll take it. but I'm still not counting out these Nuggets!

    For the nuggets to have a chance, they should look at this loss and tell themselves: "See we can beat them. Next time, let's make sure they're not lucky."

    They cannot wallow in their loss.
