I'm just finna say it. I preferred GSW today without KD.  splash bros back at it was awesome to see,  especially beating Harden.  I need a gif of when Steph touched his beard and got mad when he threw his head back and they didn't blow chit lol

Any US posters give me a rough idea how much for tickets for this game would be? When they go on sale? Or if there's even chance of me getting tickets lol?

30th April: NBA Eastern Conference Semifinals: Brooklyn Nets vs. TBD - Home Game 1 (Date: TBD - If Necessary)

Any info appreciated as always

Eastern conference semifinals is the same as saying 2nd round of the playoffs.

 The Nets would have to beat Milwaukee/Toronto/Philly without homecourt advantage, and barring a major injury I’d give them 20-1 odds

I bought decent tickets to the Bucks first round game, and it was a little over $800.

If the Nets make the second round, expect to come off a solid $500 for a pair of the worst seats in the house.

Champions: Celtics

Runner up: GSW

MVP: I think Oz is right and it's the Greek Freak

The Timberwolves will miss the playoffs because they don't play any defense and Thibs will get fired.

I got it cheap because some dude on the internet wanted a Penny Hardaway jersey and got a T-mac one instead looool.

I love those blue and white pinstripe jerseys though. Best in the NBA in my unbiased opinion

That jersey is fire. Wouldn't be mad at a Hardaway jersey either. NBA is a lot like the WWE, both were better in the 90's during the Attitude Era before they got soft. King Foglet Curry being a prime example.

Bought James's high school jersey last year for my namesake and Irish roots, on the cheap from China... resulting in insta ragrets and rash

I've got the Mourning white pinstripe jersey from that year,  and Kidd's blue cali bears. Always picked Kidd over Penny I think because the guy I was most competitive on my team with picked Hardaway lol

 

That was the era of full sets of basketball cards and knowing the NBA almanac back to front.  The GOAT era

Lol, I forgot I predicted that Thibs would get canned. 

That Celtics pick isn't going to work out though.

Westbrook joined the 20-20-20 club vs the Lakers. 

It would be cool if it wasn't vs their bench since everyone is hurt.

The Lakers weren't that bad,  but it was pretty clear that was planned with the twelve assists in the first.  Never saw the Wilt game I'm sure he stat padded too,  still a hell of a club to be a member of

has play off Harden been activated early?  0 from the field in the 4th quarter, missed the free throw that probably wins the game and OKC go the other end and hit the game winner with 1.8 on the clock  lol

the permutations for the Magic are pretty tough either way you put it.  Finishing 8th they're hoping the Greek Freak breaks down, 7th they might get a Toronto choke job but they just sonned you guys recently,  6th and I think Philly takes it

Does anyone think that the Lakers have a chance of winning a title with LeBron after next season?

I don't see 36 year old LeBron staying healthy and dominant enough to win.

nah.  he won't be able to get in the support he needs and he'll need to use next season to regain trust of a few of the players there already

Can't see Rockets game style of 3 or Frees surviving the finals environment, think they and the Raptors might get beaten by teams with more all round grunt.

Just think Blazers have more depth,  the big man out may do them in the end.  Jazz had a few bad losses but overall IMO are a huge threat! Jingles all the way!!

Is it Milwaukee!?!

I got tickets to Game 2 of their series against the Pistons. Will be wearing my throwback Ray Allen jersey and calling Blake Griffin soft every time he touches the rock. Watch for me.
