    Who the hell started all this nonsense about Oracle being such a great crowd? I've been to a game there and it's nothing special. Bunch of people who started following basketball because of Steph Curry. They cheer at the wrong times, scream at the refs when the call was obviously solid, and otherwise just aren't any different from most other NBA arenas.

    Lol except for GSW and rockets the final STANDING of the westeen play off teams were all decided on the last game of the season. That alone should tell them the 3-8 standing were damn close in talents and skills. Their narrative should be the play offs so far reflects the regular season standing. Gsw and rockets are both elite teams. And they are wrong about okc there is no damn switch and kryptonite. If you cant beat mediocre to good teams in the regular season you aint beating elite teams in the play offs.

    Man this one was hella easy to debunk.

    Regular season records from Jan 24 onwards (the date Utah turned its season around after being affected by injuries early)

    Rockets opponents:

    Utah – 29-6

    Minny 16-17 (were without Jimmy Butler since Jan 18 – he returned in the playoffs)

    Warriors opponents:

    New Orleans 23-13

    San Antonio 16-17 (Without Kawhi since Jan 9, didn’t return in the playoffs)


    It's funny how amazing Utah was just a week ago for defeating BUILT FOR PLAYOFFS. Now they are rubbish. LOL

    Trust me, if the Rockets can't win it all. The media will come out and say Rocket pass the second round just because Rubio is hurt.

    that's just dumb lol.

    wolves with butler > spurs without kawhi. check the numbers.

    jazz post all star break > pelicans post all star break. this one is closer since they were both on a roll.

    IMO toughest WC playoff opponents from the third seed on down:

    1. Pelicans
    2. Timberwolves
    3. Jazz (they'd be higher if Rubio weren't injured)
    4. Spurs
    5. OKC
    6. Trailblazers

    But to be honest, what the playoffs have really confirmed is that there is a big talent gap between the Rockets/Warriors and the rest of the pack.

    Those 4 teams were about a game apart - how on earth one can argue with a straight face which had a tougher bracket is proof that these guys HAVE NOTHING TO TALK ABOUT

    So stop watching them geez

    Um, the 1 seed is meant to have an easier bracket than the 2 seed

    Where’s the latest Max Kellerman video? I’m serious. Haven’t seen one for a while.

    I couldn't find any kellerman video today. this rockets/jazz series is pretty off the radar right now. I'm sure there will be plenty of kellerman threads when the media is talking rockets/warriors 24/7 next round

    That's why you want the #1 seed + home court. To be honest, just quit listening/watching these guys and enjoy the moment...
