    it’s gonna be funny if Joe Mazzula of all people is the one to make history

    a week ago he was a bum and the Celtics were finished

    I never said people cannot quit lol.

    They are not MJ and not machines.

    Kobe never actually won one without a good, dominating big man.

    I'm actually dumbfounded by how bad your reply is.

    Lets break it down because you seem to have trouble remembering the past half hour.

    You: Harden leaves bad teammates to try and play on a super team.

    Me: Here's a list of nobodies Harden didn't leave, but instead carried to the wCF

    You: herp derp but ahh nah uhhh ummm nah they didn't play in the playoffs u dum!!!!

    Everyone: Yikes dreamshook. Take a break from Clutchfans.

    You know what else you can't take away from Giannis?

    2-0 leads in consecutive years. The favourite. ELIMINATED.

    1cm of KDs shoe changes his whole narrative to clowns who think championships wash away everything that person has done every other year of their career.

    Oh this year? just eliminated in the first round by the 8th seed.

    I actually can't tell if Giannis has taken more horrible Ls in his career, or you have in this thread.

    Choking is not delivering under pressure. Hardens choking is self inflicted and Butlers is he is struggling despite trying. In the end it’s choking. In the end they both smell like crap so it’s crap in the end.You are justifying one choking method . .. they are both the same.

    Guys, just chill and enjoy that either Jokic wins or Tatum wins........or maybe Jimmy will come back....who knows.

    Watched Joker for a lot of years, not a hater of Tatum, and I like Jimmy.

    I think it is a win win win for me either way.

    Jokic is by far the best player in the world so yeah they are wining the title.

    No chance. Boston has all the momentum now. Tatum in game 7s averages some crazy numbers. I think the Celtics will win but will get beaten by the Nuggets who are going to be too much for them. They literally have no answer for Jokic. No one really does

    First of all relax. Harden doesn't know you're typing essays about him on clutchfans, weirdo. Did you forget Harden AND Dwight were on the same team? I think YOU need to take a break, calm down.

    Embiid might actually be the biggest choker in the NBA right now

    check his career numbers in the regular season vs playoffs…it is arguably the biggest drop off in history

    we all laughed at Simmons and he took all the heat for passing up that layup in game 7, but Embiid in that game had 8 turnovers including a crucial one in the end to basically seal the game

    game 7 against Toronto he dropped just 21 points on 6-18 shooting and he was AWFUL that series averaging 18 ppg on 37% shooting and it was crickets

    he was of course awful in game 7 against Boston as well

    Embiid has never even been to a conference finals

    Can u imagine what would be said if a 20 something year old Harden averaged 18 ppg in a playoff series?

    even this old version of Harden managed to have 2 games far better than anything Embiid has ever done in a playoff game…old Harden was the reason Embiid didn’t get swept…no one thought they could actually win game 1 in Boston without Embiid, and he saved Embiid in game 4 who was embarrassing himself in the 4th quarter getting locked by Al Horford and turning the ball over left and right

    Jimmy is on the verge of a historic choke…Boston was begging to be put out of their misery after game 3

    Good deflection.

    Glad you accepted just how terrible your last few posts have been, instead of making another post which has nothing to do about anything that's been discussed previously.

    I don't care whether anyone is aware of the 'essays' I type. I just don't let idiots freely spout blatant lies.

    Please do better in the future. Maybe stick to the truth - it's a solid jumping off point.

    I haven't deflected anything from your crazed posts. I'll make sure to be worse to you in the future. I promise.

    I dont want Celtics winning. That would be some insufferable **** from their fanbase. I don't want Bill Simmons to prosper.

    Folks created this thread with the Intention of comparing harden to butler. Now we see the mental gymnastics in action.

    Oh the team is Inferior to Boston, harden is a superstar that's a different story.

    Game 7 butler better save his team or he's gonna b setting history as the 1st choker who choke away a 3-0 lead.

    This is too funny.

    You also don't even understand the definition of deflecting.

    "Deflecting typically appears in conflictual situations, when a person is confronted with their mistakes. Instead of accepting responsibility and facing the uncomfortable situation head-on, the deflector will try to move the focus from themselves, usually by passing the blame onto someone or something else."

    You were confronted with your mistake. You then tried to move the focus from yourself onto me.

    Your past few posts... I actually am dumbfounded. You couldn't possibly be worse than you have been. It's not possible.

    Here, take another L.

    It's been a rough day for you so far.

    Well, Harden should have been in the WCF and facing Butler but he is not.

    So nope this one thread does not get instant gratification on both sides.

    My gratification will b seeing folks who been gagging on butlers balls and shtting on harden for choking just to realize that they been cheering on who could be a historic choker the first of his kind.

    Of course u guys will need to b practicing the mental gymnastics if butler lose.


    It's quite similar to folks who cheer on Lillard yet refuses to realize that he's even more of a choker than harden.

    U need more practice if u want to beat booby in mental gymnastics.

    U have your thoughts and I have mine. Acting like u aren't emotional when it comes to harden. That's like double d claiming he doesn't have a bias for kpj. Funny.
