    Down to the wire, Cavs vs. Hornets. Exciting but sloppy.

    I wouldn’t know what that is like, I don’t put things in or around my ass. Feel free to tell us all about it though if it helps you vent.

    Derrick Rose is considering retirement. If he walks away, he will forfeit $80 million dollars from his Adidas endorsement. I think for $80 million, I’d stay on the injury report and collect the check. They can only not honor his deal if he retires.

    Grizz fired Fizdale. Fucked up, thought he was a quality coach.

    Cavs are getting it together and doing it without LeBron killing him self every night. If they can win like this, without him having to average 40+ minutes, they should be in good shape when IT comes back.

    Greg Popovich has to be in the running for greatest coach of all time doesn’t he? At least top 5? He’s without his best player and is still winning pretty regularly. Take Lebron away from Cleveland and the team is lost. But Popovich just keeps on winning. He comes across as an asshole but damn, he knows how to coach.

    He's only an ass hole to the media because they ask a lot of dumb ass questions.

    He is arguably the best ever. Top 3 for sure.

    I don't think he's an asshole. I do think he is in contention for the best ever at the coaching position.

    Cavs winning 12 in a row is impressive. More impressive is they’re doing it with Lebron averaging in the low 30s in minutes per game and without either of their real starting point guards. If IT comes in and fits in well and plays well, the Cavs could make a run at the Warriors.

    Cavs transition defense is non-existent. Until it manifests they don't have a chance against the Warriors. Cavs are learning to regulate pacing on the offensive end but they give up a ton of easy baskets and open 3 point looks. These are things the Warriors feast upon.

    I think the Cavs best chances are an upset in the West by Houston.

    Nice game tonight from them, but they rely on these runs that aren't always going to manifest.
