    NBA probably tells its refs to favor certain teams, but even if they didn't, all they have to do is assign terrible refs to hostile crowds and get the same outcome almost every time.

    If the Raptors can't beat this Cavs team they're really the Clippers of the East which is pretty insulting.

    Pacers outscored the Cavs by 40 in the series, and lost. Sucks, but also got to hand it to Lebron. Damn.

    LOL You really trust the Raptors? I mean, really? And as long as the Cavs have LeBron...

    Yes, I just picked Cavs in 6 over Toronto.

    The league doesn't care about your team they only care about LeBron and his legacy.

    I didn’t say raptors would win but you said they’d destroy them

    Pacers look like they have a bright future. Oladipo is a heckuva a player, and a much fiercer competitor than I realized. I really like that team.

    I'm glad the East is prevailing the way it is there is going to be at least 4-6 annually good teams. 76ers, Celtics, Raptors, Pacers, Bucks, Heat, and Washington.

    Yea sucks, Pacers choked that one game bad in game 5 i think? Up Like 7 and they couldn’t add to the lead with Cleveland also missing and eventually Lebron took over to finish the game :(

    I need to look at their salary situation but I was a also thinking about this.

    I came up with Avery Bradley or a pat bev trade. They need an off guard knock down shooter who can defend. Now both come with injury’s concerns but Avery could be had for cheap in free agency because of the market.

    They also absolutely need help at the forward spots.
