    Bron shut down Harden more with his bitchin mouth to the refs than guarding straight up. Some plays Bron went supersayan and blocked anyone's drive to the rim, but that's more a sportscenter shutdown than a real shutdown.

    Yeah, getting shut down on double teams and letting WB roam unleashed "not knowing what to do" is fuggin traumatizing.

    I'm not sad MDA is gone.

    The pandemic playoffs should've just been a one-on-one tournament for true bragging rights and so players like AD can't gas up their elderly teammates by lying about assignments and matchups that barely, if ever, happened. Also, could've brought back some classic games with today's players.

    AD is too busy being gassed up by the Laker's fanbase as being better than Kawhi, Harden and Giannis.....LOL.

    smh, I had 2 different Lakers fans text me last night saying AD was better than Harden

    I’m like, if AD was the man on his own team, they’d currently be scouting who to take with their lottery pick...

    Change your number... jk

    AD is in rare air because this is the first time in his career he’s ever done anything. People have waited for this moment for years; just let them have their opinions. We all know the truth, and I think if AD was honest with himself he does, too.

    I did see LeBron foul the **** out of Murray last night with the game pretty close and no call. Enough to swing the game.

    LBJ's a great player, but how I've never seen a referee choke to death swallowing a whistle is amazing.

    I've never seen a fanbase so actively gas up someone like this...its really astounding how much that fan base loves to blow smoke.

    Jamal was still making clutch bucket after clutch bucket while AD and Lebron were living at the line on some mysteriously dubious foul calls down the stretch. Lakers and their fans talk themselves up so much. It's obnoxious!!

    LeBron had some epic blocks on harden. His help defense was pretty amazing that series.

    He should try calling a double when Murray crosses half court.

    Thats what he had to do with Harden.

    and Jokic can go 1-7 from three with like 5 blow layups and 5~7 turnovers



    Funny thing . . . . If Denver loses 4-1
    are they still superior to the Rockets?
    Is it guaranteed they would win against the Rockets ?

    I remember him sending Russ packing twice a game but I reckon he only would have gotten Harden once or twice in the whole series

    I don’t know how old you are but Jordan’s sport center highlights would have him fouling in 1/3 of them. The Bull’s era was bad and MJ did no wrong. We as fans weren’t as jaded then but it did happen nonetheless.

    R U kidding?

    Remember Coach Pat Riley making a halo over his head as an indication to the refs they were just a teeny tiny too respectful to Michael Jordan?

    Sh******y*****t.
