    Lots of media better be doing some apologizing the next couple days for sucking unconditional clippers dick all year long. Some ESPN folks going to be missing some Ballmer checks in the mail

    People don't actually want them to crucify Kawhi man they are just saying that ESPN and other sports pundits have pretty extreme differences in how they treat players

    No one gets the shit LeBron would in a similar situation, mainly because 5x more people care about anything to do with LeBron than anyone else. There's a ton of good that comes with that for LeBron. This is one of the few bad things.

    I just don't think the lesson from LeBron coverage is "we need to treat everyone like LeBron," which is the way that point is frequently worded. Maybe that's not what they mean, but that seems to be the way it's introduced often.

    BTW, gowolverines8 might want to close his eyes, but Gary Harris shot 42% from three in this series. That seems... good?

    One of the things that baffles me about watching the NBA nowadays is how defenses just give offenses the switches they want without even making them work for it. JVG brings this up fairly often, but so many times tonight George would match up with Murray, and then someone would come within 3 feet of him without even setting a screen and suddenly he's guarding Craig and JaMychal Green was on Murray. I just don't get how defenses constantly allow that to happen. The same thing happened in the Boston/Miami game down the stretch. What's the point of having good defenders on your team if you're just going to give offenses the match-ups they want all the time?

    And you likely lose to Utah if he didn't come back and defend Mitchell.

    This is probably not the time for this but what does dropping 40 in a game 7 against LA do for Murray's perception as a star level player?Obviously consistency is important but not many guys do that shit in a game 7

    His performance this post season is most similar to Kyrie in 2016. It puts him in the conversation as one of the best point guards in the league.

    He's doing the little things with a high level of frequency that make players great. His defense has improved so much in such a short time.

    Seems like Clippers collected some contracts just so the Lakers wouldn't get them.. I might make that up, but it feels that way. LOL fuck em

    Let the record reflect that I:

    1) called a Denver win (albeit in 6, we can’t all be perfect)

    2) defended the Clip’s sub-60 projected win total against any and all skeptics (praise Covid); and,

    3) argued vehemently that last year’s Clips season was a best-chance scenario and their supporting cast wasn’t nearly as good as advertised nor as deep as T-dot.


    Now I’ll graciously accept my conciliatory blowjobs, please form a queue to the right.

    Makes it less likely you’ll have a player left wide open for a three or a driving lane because the defender you want on a guy got stuck fighting thru a screen. Also reduces the chances of the defender drawing a foul for fighting thru the screen.
