    “But they dealt with the same issues as everybody else”. So that must be why both finals teams are out in the first round. Has that ever happened before?
    2007 tbh

    plus both finals teams from last year got hammered with injuries this year. not sure how that compares.

    Injuries have nothing to do with Herro and Robinson being bubble superstars and Jimmy Butler shooting a consistent 4 for 20 this year in the playoffs. And you proves my point. Given a full season Davis cannot stay healthy. They would not have won last year if it was a full continuous season.

    Herro could barely touch the floor this year in the playoffs. It was a fraud

    miami was a very good team through the season before the bubble

    they were not very good at all his season in general

    that doesnt prove anything by your logic if a player gets hurt and misses their entire first season in the league then they will never play an NBA game again ever

    Again. In a normal season Miami does not make the finals. They looked like complete frauds. They were good with no fans in the building, which is basically practice.

    In a 70 game season this year, Davis played 36 games. He has only played 70 games twice in his career. The odds are for him getting hurt every season.

    You also have the Raptors, Celtics, and Pacers who ALL got worse. It’s okay to admit it was a fraud. Hardly anybody wanted to be in the bubble. Guys wanted to go home and it showed.

    1 out of 3 ain't bad.
    'Member when Pat Riley was trying to message thru the media to get Lebron to stay in Miami.
    Pat went over the stats of the mini dynasties Championship / Non Championship year total.

    Bird, McHale, Bob Parish something like 3 of 10
    Kream, Magic and LakerRef something like 4 of 12
    Timmy Dunks, GNob and Porker were 3 for 6 then got popped til 2014. So 4 for 12.
    And i hope it's at least 10 more years and an entirely differnent cast before the Warriors sniff another Chip.

    Lmao LeBron getting 2 months off to recover and Anthony China Doll Davis did not benefit from less games? He plays a full season and they don’t win. He can’t even stay healthy a full season
    That's why squeezing that ring from last year in was imperative and we got 'er done.

    please explain how the league stripped talent out of the eastern conference for a decade
    Honestly I don't know exactly how they did it, all I know is that from roughly 2011 to 2018 the only other "Superstar" in the East in LeBron's way was Paul George... oh and Al Horford, which ever of five teams he might play for

    I listened to it for two days after Game 2 and one more after Game 3, then Saturday was of course no talk radio and then Monday morning I rolled over, looked at the radio, rolled back over and fell back into a black slumber. What a living nightmare.

    No more radio now till they lose a series, and I can't envision that which is alarming, but normal I suppose.
    And that's weird because I watch CNN religiously even though Trump lost, but I can't listen to the Suns hosts when the Lakers lost. They have that way of talking that drives me absolutely insane.

    Horse . You took your 8 on 5 days to heart (I was with you on that day when Amare went, but Duncan didn't.) We clammed up tight, said nary a word in protest. You'd still be getting your 8-5 if you had held on to Leonard, but Poop is a stubborn fart face.

    First off, refs don’t make calls on suspensions for leaving bench. Second, the league made changes to the rules on leaving the bench specifically for situations like this in 1997 for Ewing (or was it 98?). Look it up.

    You weren’t even around in 07. Stop bull ting.

    As for Ewing, there were even scholarly articles about it:

    I was around when they ran Amare off and let Duncan stay. You was there with me and Rummy and the rest of gang. We were happier than billy be jiggered. Sure, I said it aloud, but you fellows power shook my hand behind the curtain and high five'd me. Then threatened to kick my ass if I didn't leave immediately.
