    RIP Bill Russell

    At Fenway today, just before the start of the game, they announced Bill Russell’s passing. Clearly, most had not heard. The sound the crowd made was one I’ve never encountered before. Gasps of shock and surprise — mixed with a collective, momentary expression of pain and grief. Not a cry...

    NBA Finals Game 6--Resiliency

    Currently regretting my stance with my son that we must watch the last game of every season to the bitter end.

    NBA Finals Game 6--Resiliency

    Golden State is exceptionally good at hurling the spheroid through the metal hoop from great distances.

    6/13 Finals Game 5 @ GSW

    Young team falls apart against experienced championship squad. Happened before, will happen again.

    I’m choosing to see this as satire.

    6/13 Finals Game 5 @ GSW

    Golden State is the better team.

    6/10--NBA Finals G4, Golden State @ Celtics

    Torching the Warriors in the third would be a "making Ivan Drago bleed" moment. Prove that the monster is mortal. Take away anything that the Warriors and their fans might cling to for solace. Extinguish hope. Remove all doubt about which is the better team. Make the question absurd on...

    I want to take this post out for dinner and make out with it on the cab ride home.

    6/10--NBA Finals G4, Golden State @ Celtics

    I want the Celts to change two narratives tonight: The Warriors own the third quarter So far, they have. We all live in mortal fear during halftime. Just once, the Celtics need to outplay Golden State in the third. The Celtics can't stand prosperity Yes, we keep winning after a loss. But we...

    5 vs 8: Where we discuss the quality (or lack thereof) of NBA Playoff Officiating

    As much as I hate it, Grant and others might have to do a 24-hour intensive at Kyle Lowry’s Acting School for Sketchy Shit (ASSS), with specific focus on Histrionic Foul Embellishment and Flopping for Whistles. When Draymond decides to be a lead blocker, every player he touches should go...

    5 vs 8: Where we discuss the quality (or lack thereof) of NBA Playoff Officiating

    We don’t really need to Zapruder the Draymond tape. Push, shove, pants, who cares? He spent the entire game being an asshole, and putting his feet on Brown was just one more incident of assholery. He was daring the refs to stop him knowing that they wouldn’t. He’s been perfecting this crap over...

    Celtics vs. Warriors, NBA Finals

    Added benefit of mobilizing Grant for Operation Draymond Drop: Grant possesses close to the same level of “I believe my own bullshit” crazy that Draymond has. Anyone else hounding Green and it would be seen as performative and whistled accordingly. Grant fouling and shoving and yelling into...

    5 vs 8: Where we discuss the quality (or lack thereof) of NBA Playoff Officiating

    Was a bit surprised while listening to a recent Windhorst podcast (forgive me, I’m listening to everything right now) and hear him say that the league is far more interested in seven games of mediocre basketball/blowouts than a riveting series that ends in four or five. Bottom line: they want...

    5 vs 8: Where we discuss the quality (or lack thereof) of NBA Playoff Officiating

    To add on to this: Context matters. @HomeRunBaker is arguing that the double T shouldn’t be called because of context. Can’t toss a guy because of something seemingly less egregious than the shit he got the first T for. I understand and appreciate the point, and for the most part, agree with...

    5 vs 8: Where we discuss the quality (or lack thereof) of NBA Playoff Officiating

    If Draymond had a dedicated camera covering him the entire time, and we watched it from start to finish, all of our heads would explode. Dude is dirty by design. He didn’t just tackle Grant to the ground, he then straddled him while jawing at him, making it look like it was hard for him to get...

    6/5—NBA Finals, Game 2, Celts at Warriors

    Cue the refs giving us some friendly whistles in the fourth so they can say they were fair and balanced.
