    these nba studio shows are cringe now. TNT was better before shaq and the ESPN halftime shows pretty much always sucked

    What's that even mean? People have already replied to you about your small market teams question. Cleveland was small market. San Antonio was small market. I think even Toronto can be considered a small market, if we're talking basketball.

    lol Lebron looks like he wants to get started on recovery instead of this meaningless ceremony

    Nuggets are going to be a contender for a long time, could see them winning it all unless this was just some weird bubble mojo thing going on.

    I know I got on the refs a lot but the Lakers were the better team and Vogel's adjustments (or Lebron's adjustments) were spot on.

    I think the Lakers crush the Celtics in 4-5...

    Miami though...that's going to be a good series.

    Still think Boston can come back on Miami though.

    Now that the Lakers did Denver in 5 as well
    Can people stop jerking off the Nuggets as if they are infinitely better than the Rockets.

    did you notice the difference between LBJ and JH??
    I have to say it, and you have to give huge credit to LBJ for his:

    KILLER INSTINCT!!! and DEDICATION!!!

    When we need JH in clutch time or big game, he rarely showed up. This is the different that puts you in the NBA finals

    the Lakers don't lose by double digits when he sits

    Dwight
    Caruso
    Kuzma
    KCP
    AD
    Waiters

    All will have rings before Harden. What a joke. **** you, Morey.

    is it that difficult for you to admit the other's greatness?

    AD has led a team himself in New Orlean, and how did that end?
    Could you please tell me there is one another star in the current Laker's roster, other than LBJ and AD?

    I would trade House for Ancient Danny Green
    Curuso > BMac
    Knowing his role Dwight > PJ
    In Control Rondo > Out of Control Westbrook

    Where is the lie here?\

    and legit tell me. . . .DO THE LAKERS LOSE BY DOUBLE DIGITS WHEN LEBRON SITS FOR 5 MINUTES???

    I love Lebron but the truth is the truth


    IMO Lebron = Harden \
    but
    AD >>>>>>>>>>>> Westbrook

    Leadership, style of play, and talent lead LBJ to the greatness, even GOAT. PERIOD.

    i know people will say the lakers had lebron and AD and murray was hurt, but i really think this series was lost because jokic wasn't moving off the ball enough.

    Did you already forget the pain? When the game is at clutch, and what you see is that JH walks the ball up and dribble the clock out, at a final second, either a brick or a last second pass.
    It HURTS, man.

    We definitely just witnessed greatness, but I don't think it makes sense to compare it to Harden's performances. The Rockets could very well be in the finals right now if we had Davis and they had Westbrook.
