    Are the Pats the worst team in the NFL?

    Others have done a good job of outlining the key variables. My gut tells me they'll overperform and end up in the 5-6 win range, based mostly on the assumptions that the defense will still be solid if not spectacular and that they'll have replacement-level QB play with Brisette starting most of...

    NBA Finals, Game 5, June 17: Banner Day>Flag Day

    How worried are you about Celtics closing this out?

    I'm fairly confident that they'll roll in Game 5. But if they get off to a slow start, or if they're trailing or narrowly ahead after the first half, I will start to sweat.

    “I’m telling you Tony - even if the Celtics win this series it will be tainted by this Game 4 performance. Put an asterisk on it.”

    That’s not called a foul if he doesn’t throw himself on the floor.

    6/14 - Finals Game 4 @ DAL – Only Championship Banners

    Was hoping we’d finally get the “Cs hit threes and coast” game. Instead we’re getting “Mavs hit everything and do whatever they want on D.”

    This is what I was afraid of after the last 2 days of Luka coverage. He’s getting every call.

    Instead they scold the defender for not being disciplined.

    NBA Finals: Celtics vs Mavs

    This is similar to what I've always said about Embiid, another great "big" player who spends way too much time dramatically flopping onto the floor. I've sometimes wondered if that ends up contributing to his aches and pains. Of course there are also conditioning similarities between the two.

    I do worry a bit that all of the attention on Luka and the fouls will lead to some favorable calls for him. Of course it could just as easily go in the other direction, especially with an ego like Foster out there. Seems like the officials collectively reached a tipping point anyway.
