    What do you mean by crowded? I thought there weren't thread limits anymore.

    It’s up to the mod, and I don’t like getting too many posts in a thread. I was going to close it before the conference finals started, but I forgot.

    Worst news of the playoffs so far.....

    Klay Thompson Contract Rumors: Warriors Discussing Long-Term Deal with SG

    Potentially taking a massive discount to keep the team no one can/will beat together and also saving the billionaire owners a bunch in luxury tax money. The hope was Klay and/or Draymond leaving or LeBron building another super team to compete with the Warriors and I'm losing that hope now. The Celtics have really impressed and might be ready sooner than we thought so maybe they can do something.

    Klay doesn't give a **** about money so I get it, he loves playing with the Warriors and living in California. The guy is the most care free athlete I've ever seen.

    If you saw the interview with Klay after the game last night it was pretty obvious that he's happy as a clam right where he is.

    Nothing beats the story of Klay going through a slump, and Bob Myers visiting him at his house to talk to him about it, and then as Myers is leaving Klay asks when the next game is and who they're playing :laugh: The guy is so nonchalant and care free it's hilarious.

    That's awesome. There are so many good Klay stories out there. The one Durant told on Simmons' podcast recently is another good one:

    I'd stay with the Warriors if I'm Thompson. He's a solid player and they're showing no signs of slowing down. A match made in heaven if you ask me.

    Good for him. Money isn't everything. Earthquakes aside the west coast of California is probably the most chill place to live in the US.

    LeBron bringing it, but Celtics once again forcing the king into some turnovers and doing a good job of shutting down the other Cavs.

    I like Boston's chances in this one.

    Might be one of those LeBron games. Already has 16 of the 22 Cavs points.

    James sucking wind in the first intermission. They are ahead but someone else on Cleveland better step up.

    Only way to slow LeBron tonight is a shoulder to the jaw.

    Cavs say it's a neck strain. There was no chance LeBron was getting diagnosed with a concussion whether he has one or not.

    I have to admit, I like these commercials with DWade and Chewbacca.

    As a Raps fan, I have to admit these Celtics have impressed me so much especially considering they are missing Irving and Hayward.

    Celtics are just relentless. Rozier finally woke up in the second half too.

    LeBron is gassed and/or concussed.

    Nance, Clarkson and Hood have barely played in this series. The only component of that trade contributing is George Hill and that's being kind.

    Once again, this is LeBron's team with the guys he wanted. They might indeed be in trouble now if Boston can actually show up on the road.

    I'm not surprised but it's funny how JVG and Jackson keep rushing to Lue's defense. No, he can't force players to give effort on those close outs but his lineups and the Cavs' defense overall have been a joke.
