    I don't think I'd argue against Gregg Popovich being an 18x Coach of the Year at this point. He's had talented players over the years, but he's been the one to best utilize them to gel their strengths to the strength of the team. Only season he missed the playoffs was his first year as coach.

    Fucking genius.

    Did you watch that Celtics game ninja? They played very solid. Great team basketball, Bradley looked awesome.

    I did not but was glad to see IT show Curry how to play in the 4th quarter.

    It's crazy to see both Golden State and Cleveland slipping at the same time. It's been a foregone conclusion all year theyre meeting in the finals for the third straight year yet now both are struggling to hold onto the number 1 seed.

    I don't know how much the Cavs care about the #1 seed as they'll be favoured to win every series they enter in the playoffs anyway, outside of them getting injuries.

    Minnesota just beat GS by 1, and GS play SA tomorrow.

    However, Kawhi is out vs GS, which would be bad for SA but Klay, Curry, Green and Iggy are resting for GS so wont play vs SA.

    It was a clean shot to Goran. Shame, his team had been playing well and can't afford him to be out.

    Spurs have caught the Warriors in the standings.

    John Andariese passed away, Johnny Hoops as he was known. Did years of color commentary with Marv for MSG, was always great, unbiased, unfiltered, but professional.

    Marv and John are my Madden and Summerall. Growing up in the 80s they were the fixture on my TV night after night watching the Knicks suck then flourish under Riley then sucked again.

    Basketball was the first thing I really obsessed over and learned, and John was one of my first teachers regarding the sport. I didn't realize till today how much I missed those telecasts. I've watched a lot of shifty basketball simply because I loved listening to Marv and John go back and forth.

    True legend, I'll always regret not being able to meet him and thank him for the education.

    I think a coach should be able to manage his team however he wants. The entertainment and sales aspect is something that I understand but if it's a sport first then the goal is a championship, not satisfying the audience.

    100% agree. The spirit of competition should be first, second, and third. Everything else comes after that.

    So..............ESPN called Silver and complained.

    Went to my first NBA game last night. Floor seats at Thunder game. It was pretty cool. Westbrook is a bad ass.
