Title: NBA Playoffs
Post by: eyephone on August 26, 2020, 11:56:43 AM
Luka looks legit. He has been lighting it up in the bubble. The future of the NBA.

Did Markus Morris intentionally step on Luka’s ankle?

Luka definitely playing well.  I have not looked at it but the bubbles seems to have improved shooting...neutral court, no crowd.

Milwaukee Bucks decides to boycott game 5

I believe due to the police shot a man in the back multiple times in Wisconsin.

The angle from the behind, you can tell he intentionally stuck his leg out to step on his ankle

I mean honestly unless Portland is going to shoot 50% from 3PT the rest of the series they won't stand a chance. They caught fire in game 1 and that's how they won. Won't happen every night. Also Nurkis is gassed and can't do anything on the P&R and contest AD as a stretch 4/5.

Lakers and Clippers just voted to cancel the rest of the season.  At least the Lakers won their last game of the year...on Kobe Day.   :'(

Lakers and Clippers were only 2 teams to vote cancel though. But who knows, maybe they can force their hand and just boycott regardless.

As usual, money talks. This was poorly planned, no plan. I don’t really care for sports bringing in social justice into sports, but I understand why they do it.

LeBron is a bit of a hypocrite as well as are the rest of the nba players. They were nowhere to be found on China issue.

I wish he was more vocal about the China issues but I do not see why he cannot lead on this issue.

The rumor is that the Milwaukee bucks players are looking to set up a meeting with the Wisconsin Attorney General.

You are right there was no plan. This is a harmless message by the NBA, WNBA, MLS, MLB, NFL players that there is a problem.

So far no response from Trump or Kanye.  ;)

Two separate issues.
Also, before you blame LeBron on China. Look at companies/farmers/business that do business with China.

Also...I am not sure why someone needs to be "right" on every issue before they can comment on a single issue.  I can support Lebron for his stance on racial issues in this country and condemn him for his silence on China. 

It is also very possible/likely that Lebron simply does not have the personal connection with the China issue like he has with the racial issue.

I agree with everything you said. I said the same thing about the black athletes not having the connection to the China issue. 

However, he could have just said something. He didn’t have to follow up with any actions regarding China but it would show he has a consistent view on social justice issues. Instead he came out and said Daryl Morey didn’t understand the issue.

It doesn’t mean he isn’t a hypocrite. That’s fine. Most people are. Just pointing it out

Trump responded and said he doesn%u2019t know much about it, but he knows the NBA ratings are bad. What! Lol Sorry he is a joke!

There did make a change. Majority or not all of the nba teams will make the arena available for voting. (For the arenas owned by the team)

that's big in the battleground states.  Doesn't mean so much for CA, MA, and Toronto.

You can vote by mail. So no real change.

As usual, money talked.  Just like LeBron shut up about China because it was going to hit them in the wallet. Now the players voted with their wallets is well. Which is what most of us would have done.

Driving real change can take a lot of sacrifice and most of us are too selfish to make the sacrifice. 

If they would have walked out on the rest of the season they said the owners would have lost anywhere from 700M to a billion and that would have led to the owners canceling their current CBA, which would have not ended up well for the players. So what did they do, take the money. It’s always about the money even when it’s not about the money.

Vote by mail is questionable according to Trump. But if you vote by mail for Trump it is okay. Trump even voted by mail recently.
This is a big step. Because the recent primaries there are people waiting 7 plus hours to vote.

No way they were going to cancel  the season, too much money at stake. As the saying goes, when someone says it's not about the money it always is about the money. Most of these athletes live paycheck to paycheck and would be in a world of hurt if they stopped getting paid.

Interesting West semis... Lakers/Houston and Clips/Nugs.

Bucks down 0-2 to Miami? What?!? Looks like Butler was smart leaving Philly.

I think it's going to be the Celtics out of the East and as much as I want to see a Lakers/Celtics final... I'd like to see Clips fighting for their first ring ever.

At least I won't be conflicted during the West finals... go Denver!!!

Just kidding... I want LBJ to get another ring... and AD to get his first after trying to win in NO.
