I like both teams, but everytime I convince myself that the Celts are going to win in 6 or 7, I think about Kidd and what the Nets have done, and think that they might be able to pull it off. One thing is for sure, I can't wait for the 4th quarter battles between Pierce and Kidd.

I'm a big fan of Sportsline, and they're right... nobody had these 2 teams picked to be in the ECF's. I had 'em both in the Playoffs, but I had Orlando and the Bucks at the end. Damn Grant Hill!

Either way, I think these have been some of the best Playoffs in recent memory. And the Conference Championships are gonna be sweet. The only thing I'm worried about is the Finals being a let down, but who knows?

These playoffs sure have been great so far. The Finals might be a let down because either the Kings or Lakers will most likely win.

That's generally the way it is.
Take the Avalanche Redwing series for instance. That's going to rule. The finals will be so so, but having Carolina in the finals might make for some interesting hockey.

The Nets Celtics series will be interesting to watch. I don't think the Lakers will have much of a problem dispatching the Kings. That series will go 6.

Kidd - 1. Pierce - 0.

I still say this series goes 6 or 7.

And what's up with Kobe getting the flu. I bet he plays and drops 34.

Ahahaha the old flu eh? Just like when MJ had the "flu" in Game 5 of the Finals against the Jazz?

*cough* BULLSH*T! *cough* ehem....excuse me....this cough man..

Tell Kobe I like that tan.

I remember there were a couple great Pacers-Celtics series. That was when Indiana had Chuck "The Rifleman" Person. Memories, memories.

I still say the NBA will get their wish.

Lakers vs. Celtics.

Probably Lakers in 5 or 6 games. Sacramento will probably either get swept or lose in 5. Thanks to the zebras.

I don't know if you are laughing at Chris Webber, or the statement. If you're laughing at Chris, all I have to say is 4-1. Geez, even my 8th seeded Pacers put up a better fight against a #1 seed.

What an excellent comeback! When I turned on the game after getting home, I couldn't believe how poorly the Celtics were playing. But that fourth quarter was amazing!

I even saw that the Red Sox were in attendance after their game. Wow, they got done at Fenway fast.

So Celtics lead 2-1, and they have another home game before going back to NJ. Things are looking up.
post #134 of 280
All I can say is wow. I was out with my friends at the mall and I walked past TGI Friday's and saw on one of the TVs that the Nets were up 22-7 at the end of the 1st. Then when I got home and went to check the final score on the Nets' site I couldn't believe it. Then I read about the game and was totally shocked.
post #135 of 280
Both these series are shaping up nicely. N.B.A. guys often say a series doesn't really start until a home team looses.

I'd love to see Sacramento take the West, but I'll enjoy it more if the Lakers are playing their best and then the Kings kicked their butts. Game three was not the L.A. I've been cursing the last two years!

I've had to miss the Eastern games due to work so far!

The team the Mavs lost to is up 2-1 on the Lakers... the team the Pacers lost to (in the first round) is down 2-1 to the.. Celtics!?

Be careful calling scoreboard, thug life. Of course, it helps when you claim 12 teams.

LOL. That doesn't say anything grover. So I guess what you're trying to say is the mavs wouldnt beat the Celtics?

Go Kings. I wasnt watching these WWE playoffs until I heard the Fake Show (aka No Lakers) were getting rolled by the Kings so I figured I'd turn it on and watch the zebras allow LA back into the game. Around 4th quarter time I was talking to people online and said "I bet you Vince McMahon (David Stern)made the call down for a big 4th quarter Lakers to get them a win or at least boost TV ratings". What happens? Sacramento looks as if they arent trying and LA goes on this big run. What a joke. They wanted Shaq to take over when Kobe went out. I liked Kobe's little irish jig, didn't know he was a dancer.

We all know what it will most likely come down to, and that's Celtics vs. Lakers NBA Finals. Hopefully Sacramento can fight the conspiracy. As far as Boston, I'd like them to win even though I know they'll get the benefit from the league.

When did I claim 12 teams? Maybe it was when I stated I really didn't care for any teams besides the Indiana Pacers and Utah Jazz. That's all I'm sure I ever will. Unfortunately it looks like only 1 more year left of Stockton to Malone. I'll miss it.

You must have been imagining if you thought Showbe was descent lol. Maybe for an Irish kid.

To answer your question:

#1 I am hoping to see the Kings overcome the refs, NBC, the WWE (NBA), Vince McMahon (David Stern), etc to win so we can have a truthful winner

#2 I have only watched the Pacers games in the playoffs and a couple of the Kings vs. No Lakers because I was enjoying Sacramento beating the hell out of them despite the refs trying to let LA win...they let them back in this time and look what happens

#3 I have nothing better to do

#4 I love to see how damn fixed it is....its just a joke to watch...like watching wrestling


What did I tell you about your Nets? The NBA isnt gonna let them win unless the Nets find a way to score so many pts and kill Boston so badly they cant negate it, but I dont ever see that working after tonight.

First of all did you watch this game? Second did you think the Fake Show shouldve been awarded 3 pts by Samaki Walker at the end of the first half? The answer is no, because the half was already over, yet the gave it to them and it cut the lead as well as gave them momentum going into the 2nd half. The game is bullsh*t, just look, listen, and realize it buddy.

Have you EVER played a ****ing basketball game? You do, of course, that Shaquille O'Neal is the single most dominating NBA players since Jordan's heyday?

Remember how he dominated with the Magic? Was that conspiracy, too?

Kobe is a fantastic baller. I realize you dislike the Lakers (there's no team I hate more) and I will grant that the refs turn the other way because Shaq is a superstar.

But this **** about David Stern calling scripts in... what a joke. Christ... <img src="graemlins/lol.gif" border="0" alt="[Laughing]" />

The Mavericks would beat the Celtics, bet your *** .

I play ball, used to play it a lot. Gee, you 2 can be just as dominating if you were 7'1 350 lbs or whatever he is with a lack of any basketball skill! You too can give elbow blows to the opposing team player's chest! You too can travel and get away with it! You too can only dunk! You too can miss 2 foot shots! Or wait, was it 1! You too can build a tent in the lane! Please, if I was that size I'd average 50 f*king points a game. The guy has no skill, he's just a big dumbass. Not too intelligent either.

Dominating with the Magic? Wow he got 20 points and 10 rebounds did he? And did he just dunk around the basket? Hardly dominating, especially considering that with any skills the guy would put up numbers that would make Wilt look like an AAU player.

Shobe is trash just like MJ was is and always will be. John Crotty could average as many points as he does if he shot the ball as much. Also, why isnt Kobe being arrested for statuatory rape? Isn't his cover-up wife like 12 yrs old or something? Oh wait, since he doesn't swing that way they probably don't do anything. Damn, imagine all that @$$ coming your way and you don't want it.

The NBA might as well be called the WWE because it's just an act. The refs have their whistles up their @$$e$ and it's just unbelievable. NBC coverage sucks too now, since that flamer Tom Tolbert is on now.

There are lots who agree with me. While watching the conspiracy theory in full effect, I was talking to a bunch of people who thought the same exact thing as I did. It's an outrage. These weren't Kings fans, they weren't Laker fans. they were people who love basketball observing what I was observing, and that's cheating.

The WWE has gone downhill so much, and it won't pick up unless games are played, not won by zebras.

I gotta agree with you on this. You notice how I never mention Shaq when I talk about LA. I think he complains too much about getting fouled when he fouls people and pushes them all the time. If he wasn't so big he'd be an average or below-average player.

No. they are not my friends. They are people in a chat room that I don't even know. Look at a thread in this very forum that was started. It talks about how the Indy 500 was rigged. I don't doubt in my mind that most professional sporting events are. It just depends how and if you can do it.

With pro sports, the object is on making money, and I think that comes into play and takes away from it being a pure game.

I hate how people talk about how Shaq has all this "talent", and how HE tries to turn things around and saying people are always hacking him. It's absurd to think that a player who misses tons of shots from 3 feet and in has basketball talent. The guy is so tall and fat that all he has to do is reach up and dunk the ball. Put him 5 feet away from the basket and he has trouble doing anything on Bill Wennington. If you look at replays of Shaq fighting against a defender, he's gives them about 2 elbows right to the chest and then goes from there. Not only that, but I've seen instances where someone 5 feet away was called for a foul on Shaq (2000 NBA Finals). When someone touches him its a foul, yet hes so damn big it would take a lot to knock the guy over. Also he travels a lot and is never called for 3 seconds, when he should be almost every play down the court. Talent? Give me his body and I guarantee you I average AT LEAST 50 points a game. He should be unstoppable.

You're right, unfortunately the object is making money. It really does ruin the game but it doesn't mean that it's fixed. It just means that the main focus isn't on just playing the game and having fun.

Man, I can't believe Paul Pierce missed that irst free throw. He was clutch before, I guess the timeout iced him. His second was perect for what they were trying to do but Battie just couldnt put it in. Some clutch shots by the Nets. Props (even though I refuse to like a wife beater).

Christ... you are a joke.

Shaq's stats:
'92 - '93 23.4points 13.9 rebounds
'93 - '94 29.3/13.2
'94 - '95 29.3/11.4
'95 - '96 26.6/11.0
'96 - '97 26.2/12.5
'97 - '98 28.3/11.4
'98 - '99 26.3/10.7
'99 - '00 29.7/13.6
'00 - '01 28.7/12.7
'01 - '02 27.2/10.7

His career average is 27.6/12.3
His career average is a double-double. Are you blind? A complete moron?

Shaq gets some good treatment, but you take logic and bend it to idiot lunacy.

For comparison, Jordan's career average is 31 points per game.

Shaq is a force, with or without the ref's help.

It means a lot in determining the sustained dominance of a player. It also means a lot towards the idea of how much a player is enhanced by his super-stardom.

You idiotically claim that the Lakers players aren't very good. Shaq is the #1 player in the NBA today, bar none. To not recognize that is idiocy.
