OK. Time to end this bullshit. The sports stakes are incredibly high. The Lakers are going for banner 17* to tie the Celtics. There is no way, no fucking way that should happen without having to go through the Celtics.
This must not stand.
This cannot stand.
The Lakers are going to coast into the finals riding a vintage 80's soft ass western conference playoff run. There is no way Denver will last more than 5 or 6 games. There is no goddamned way that they should be playing the Miami fucking Heat to earn that title. This is a team that relies heavily on Jae Crowder for Christ's sake. Tyler Herro and Duncan Robinson are both built straight out of the 'annoying white-guys on the other team' instruction manual. Jimmy Butler is a simpering turd who desperately wants to be looked at as a 1A guy when he's a 1B at best. And those powder blue and pink uniforms are an atrocity.

Time to fuck these guys up starting tonight, ensuring the Lakers have to wrestle their next banner away from the C's.


*They won three titles in Minnesota before the shot clock existed. Always be sure to remind Lakers fans of that.

Win tonight, the whole script flips, talks of Celts having momentum, talks of adding momentum with Hayward.

Just need a win

I think this is the game where Brad throws in a major wrinkle. He's pretty good about doing that before the situation gets dire and I think some of the issues at play in the game 1 loss have been evident since the Toronto series. You can't let those keep popping up if you want to advance, and Brad knows it.

I am amazed that my phone survived the slamming it got after another play during crunch time that was eighteen seconds of fiddling and diddling and a crappy off balance shot.

if they don’t play actual basketball in the last four minutes of regulation I am destroying something.

still sick over that crap. Make it better.

It just amazed me in the 4th Q. when they are cheesedicking the game away, dribbling away every possession, that millions of C's fans at home screaming to stop dicking around could see it so obviously, but these guys who live and breathe and play the game at an incredible level couldn't seem to get it. And Brad just kept letting it happen. I hope that since every media guy and fan has been bashing them for it for 48 hours it has to have sunk in, right?

Hose the Heat!

No more Kemba idly dribbling at the top of the key for 10 seconds with no movement elsewhere.

I can guarantee Spo didn’t anticipate Brad rolling out Kanter and Langford so quickly.
