    Giannis gets away with so many walks. That couldn’t be more obvious

    He did separate them. You can complain about him mentioning it but it is a legit injury.

    I know and I’ve mentioned this numerous times on this board only to be ridiculed. The league has their agendas and there’s nothing to do about it.

    If the Raps can stay away from a "teens" scoring quarter, they might get this one...

    From what I am hearing with my surround sound, Raps have by far the loudest crowd in the NBA. Hard to win a playoff game in that environment.

    Toronto needs to DIG DOWN DEEP. This can can get done with determination and fkn heart.

    You can't go out like this...its disrespect to the players family,the fans, and the organization.


    The Bucks are not the Warriors......its one fkn guy out there with a bunch of fkn role players, my God.


    Take both these games, geez. Like I said its not the mid 90s bulls or the warriors....its the got damn bucks for christs sake.

    It didn't seem to bother Lebron and Cleveland all those years they played Toronto.

    Kerr has zero respect for Portland , expected it to cost him on the road going experimental with Damian Jones. Series has a 1-8 matchup feel after the War with Houston

    Toronto has a bunch of timid players outside of Kawhi, no confidence

    Hope they win tonight but they need to quit pissing down their leg

    Bruh, I used to ball in my day. A great home crowd gets the home players more hyped/aggressive, Refs more apt to call fouls on road team and let some go for home team, etc. Don't give me that shit about it having zero effect.

    Looks like Kawhi may be day to day with the gimpy knee. 52 minutes is no joke.

    Just saw the post game interview with Kwahi. He knew he was going to be on TV, his French Braids was tight as F. RollLaugh

    Not a hair out of place, like his name was Pat Riley. Laughing

    Yet the Warriors can win on the road, the crowd doesn't mean jack shit. The Sacramento Kings around 2002 had the loudest fans in the NBA with their cowbells and all, they never even made it to the NBA Finals.

    Laughing Those 2 examples are all you have to prove crowd noise has no effect? I said Toronto has the loudest crowd and it definitely helps (had a little to do with why they won last night) but I never said they were going to the NBA finals because of it.

    what's the diff? No accountability and he can spin it into an "I called it" rant if they win another title.

    wouldn't their agenda be a longer series if they had one, not who wins it?

    Yep...never just credit the other team when yours loses. Has to be your own coach or the refs.

    Can’t they have both? More games and their choice of who advances. I don’t expect someone who cheered for Lebron for so many years to understand.

    I take it you think the agenda was put on hold in the 2008-09 and 2009-10 seasons? And this season by not even getting Lebron into the playoffs?

    You think they have a preference of Giannis/Milwaukee or Kawhi/Toronto?

    shouldn's ask, as I believe Conspiracy Guy can come up with a conspiracy no matter what happens.

    And what about the 4 years in a row that Cleveland and GS met in the finals giving Adam Silver his dream Finals and ratings giant. That is totally scripted.

    Yeah....couldn't just be they had the best players. He probably loved the 4-1 and 4-0 finishes, too, right?

    Ya gotta love this forum.

    Yeah Silver should've had Toronto go to the Finals all those years instead of Cleveland, it had nothing to do being scripted, Cleveland was the best team in the Eastern Conference.
