    Those names are decidedly worse than “The Flamingo”. I would prefer it be called The Amputation Station.

    How many more FTs do the Lakers get today? I'm thinking 15.

    It's sad that we already know it will be bad before the game is even played.

    Kind of a perfect day of sports.
    Big 12 title immediately followed by SeC title immediately followed by Big 10 and ACC titles immediately followed by the rockets Lakers. I brewed a pot of coffee an hour ago to get my second wind.

    No telling. I've seen them get as many as 28 more free throws this year. One thing is certain though, and that is that they never get less free throws than the visiting team in their arena. Never! If it's close in the final couple minutes I have no doubt they will get those couple tik tak calls for free throws or blatantly ignored fouls on our shooters. We will have to hit our 3's tonight, and play smart defense. No stupid fouls.

    The game starts at 03:00 GMT and at 06:00 Turkish time.

    You are lucky.

    I used to think Curry got away with the most fouls, but LeBron is worse. The guy bulldozes players, fouls them, and never gets the calls. Has he ever even fouled out this year? In his last 7 games he has been called for only 2 fouls. You know that's straight up favoritism. Its ridiculous that in 5 of his last 7 games they didn't call a single foul on him. I honestly can't even stand watching that BS. It just pisses me off. So, enjoy. I'll watch the highlights if we win.

    Ya'll ever make Cubano sandwiches with carnitas instead of regular roasted pork? This is a game changer.

    I think it's pretty generally accepted that the officiating is slanted. But the way things are right now, they need a-fixin'.

    Star calls are worse than ever. Replay, technicals for flopping is lip service. Flopping is rampant. Gambling is being pushed to fans, I can't accept that the participants on court have nothing to do with it there's just too much money involved. Scott Foster and Draymond Green are still allowed in arenas. Fans have a better look at the plays than referees do. Travels, 3 seconds, moving picks, hanging on the rim, all feel arbitrary. It's broken man.

    Like I genuinely wonder what else could they do to break it. It feels all the way broken.
