Thread: NBA playoffs

    Re: NBA playoffs



    Thunder fan here, happy with how we played without Russ, Memphis is just ultra tough and made a few more plays last night. I honestly think every game this series will be a dog fight with the score in the 90's.

    Nate Robinson sure has made himself some money this offseason, cant help but root for Chicago, so short handed but so sound and tough

    Love watching Golden State, i think they are gonna give the Spurs everything they can handle

    Knicks and Pacers i think is gonna be interesting going forward, like the Pacers in 6 or 7

    Having said that, a Memphis-Chicago matchup in the finals would be like a hockey series. I'm betting there would be as many fights, too. If Miami isn't going to breeze through everyone, that's the matchup I want to see.
    Don't worry - there won't be any debate. No matter what LeBron does, Jordan will ALWAYS be the GOAT.

    Id like to see the Heat win a couple more too. And for the one voter to vote for anyone but Lebron as MVP is just a hate move. Should've been unanimous

    That's simply not true, they are just about equal in every way except championship's, but LeBron is only 28 and has a good chance at pulling away in every category except scoring.

    LBJ - 25.0 points, 6.6 rebounds, 6.3 assists, 1.6 steals, 0.8 blocks, 3.0 turnovers, 1.7 fouls, .490 fg%, .337 3p%, .747 ft%

    27.9 PER, .250 WS/48

    Per-36 stats - Best Season (by WS/48):

    A four point difference in career average points is huge. As is a one steal difference.

    James has a LONG way to go before he's on the level of Jordan.

    as is the gap on rebounding and assists, showing Lebron as the more complete player

    No. It's apples and oranges and a VERY different league back then.

    I have no dog in this fight except having watched both during their entire careers. James is getting there, no doubt about it.

    But he's still a very long way to reach Jordon. He hasn't really surpassed Koby yet so it's still uphill for him right now.

    If he keeps this going, stays healthy and wins more rings, yes James will be considered GOAT. But those are a lot of "ifs" in a league where career can go away rather quickly.

    I am actually a big Lebron fan.

    But sorry, he will never be on Jordan's level IMHO.

    He would have had a shot if he didn't melt down in the 2011 finals. No matter what he does from here on out, that performance will forever be a black mark...I can't see Jordan or any of the of the top 15 players in NBA history just completely out of it mentally like that.

    Now all that being said, I think Lebron is right now one of the top 10 players in NBA history and has a hell of a shot to be in the top 5 with another title or 2.

    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    I agree, too often i think people try to look at all these advanced stats and numbers and ignore the eye ball test. Lebron is maybe the greatest physical specimen we've ever seen and in recent years has filled holes in his game to become the leagues best player but there is nothing he can do on a basketball court better then Jordan then maybe pass. It's no knock on Lebron, i think he's terrific and i love the way he plays as well as how he handles himself(besides the decision lol)

    I don't understand why Rose won't at least try to give it a go. He's medically cleared but says he's not mentally ready. Really? You can't even try it? BS

    Maybe the Bulls got spanked yesterday on purpose to guilt him into suiting up game 3 lol

    It really is a shame though because i think the Bulls could give the Heat a real run for their money with Rose, i believe when Rose got hurt he had come back from an injury(maybe he thinks prematurely) and maybe that is coming into play with his reluctance to now.
