That line-up change turned out to be the best thing for Boston. The Cavs were prepared to defend a ball-dominant fidget. Boston is far better defensively without him, and it should have been obvious that they would be.

And that's^ wrong.

I'm thinking you mostly meant to be funny here, but the difference is at the heart of this comment. Not many transition points in the second half of #3 and the first half of #4 at all, huh ?

Lebron's played the first three halves of the two home games like someone who's been up half the night fighting with his wife or something. I have to wonder if someone texted her pics of him with some broad in Boston.... Or maybe one of his kids is in trouble and it's stressing home life ?

He also seems stubborn enough that if he and Lue differed over how to change the game plan after Thomas left the Boston lineup, he could easily let a game go because he knows they can't lose 3 more. If that possibility came up in media conversation, CA would be all over this thread

Pretty simple really. Obviously James Harden and Westbrook had much better seasons. Everyone else had relatively similar seasons, except John Wall's assists numbers. Below compares Steph, IT, DeMar, Kyrie and Wall. The biggest argument against Kyrie is his defensive rating was the worst, tied with IT. Plus for IT is he led his team and had an unreal offensive output. Given the context, ie its a regular season award, it's not that crazy Kyrie was left off. You could argue any of those 5 over the others. I really have no idea why the whole "it's a regular season award" concept is so difficult for you. Most middle school kids grasp it.

I think you're full of crap. Or you misunderstood.







Actually, the most likely scenario is that you misunderstood AND are full of crap.

You're so angry today, cabe. Ted rejecting you and your love of meatloaf got you all in a tizzy?

WinstonSmith is on a distinguished road
Kyrie had an incredible 3rd quarter. Good thing LBJ got his game back in the 2nd half, too. He looked totally lost again in the first half, so bizarre.

A quick aside from the basketball aspect: Yesterday JR Smith's daughter was released from the hospital after a premature birth 5 months ago. After the game, media members went to JR's locker when Kyrie told them JR had already left. "Swish left. Sprinted him to see his daughter."

Oh and LeBron needs 28 points to pass Jordan for #1 all time playoff scoring.
