    Bucks were the no 1 and they pretty much got swept. Clippers go up 3-1 and choke away their lead.

    At least most people excepted us to lose.

    I don't think anyone picked the nuggets over the clippers.

    Imagine doc gets canned and they hire D’Antoni and Tillman foolishly hires the overrated Rivers

    I keep telling people that the Sterling Curse is still in effect. It's weaker now, so at least they make the playoffs, but that team won't sniff the finals until ol' Donald is in a box.

    And they only have one more year of Kawhi before he leaves for greener pastures.

    While the way the Rockets showed absolutely no heart or fight back after game 2 in the series against the Lakers, it is nowhere near the collapse the Bucks and Clippers have had. Of course, golden children like Kawhi/Giannis will not get the criticism the red-headed stepchild of superstars (Harden) gets while putting up better numbers than either of them. Oh well, such is the hatred of the media for Houston and Harden. And let's not forget our own so-called fans (realistically troll accounts from most likely other teams, you know who you are).

    He has championships. He doesn't have to worry much anymore since his legacy is cemented regardless. Playoff P on the other hand, lol.

    Russ May make silly decisions but you can never question his heart but George is a utter mental midget. No thanks.

    He was on two great teams when he won two championships but he always got all the credits.This was the first time he had to carry a team and he came up short.All that load management in regular season and that is all you got in the playoffs? Pass

    It doesn't matter man. Look at LeBron and being 3-9 in the finals. You win rings and people forget. I don't mind egging him, but man it's hard to do so when they have the rings and they've actually had good performances in the past.
