I'm tired of this double standard...fouls are called differently on Harden then other players.


Are they complaining or are they admitting?


This one had me scratching my head to loll

I think they are actually complaining...yikes.


Trust me those (bleep)-heads are complaining. Go on Clutchfans. Ass hats defend the Astros. Seriously, they think the Astros were saints and refused to snitch on other teams that are cheating.


The defense of the Astros is ridiculous...kind of par for the course these days.

But I will say the hoops fan base, I don't mind as much. Very passionate. Good humor at times. Good size. Their team is annoying AF, but that's not their fault. They need to gripe a little less about the officiating. Every fan base does that, but everyone in the league can't stand the Rockets drawing FTs in the manner they do. So some self reflection there would be healthy, but that's a condition most fan bases suffer from.

The Rockets’ lack of size makes even our small ball lineup look like:

PG— Magic
SG— Durant
SF— Giannis
PF— Dirk
C— Yao Ming

So the answer is we've got to speed things up? LOL

Yea...I'll be doing that on my DVR with the fast forward button I'm pretty sure


That's always been MDA's key adjustment.

Also, fans can't be complaining about the refs when you are down 20-30 and about to lose your fourth straight. That's just a bad look.

I rarely take any satisfaction in seeing other teams suffer or fans, but this Houston team with a) Morey B) MDA c) Harden ... it was such a slap to quality basketball. I am so happy they got this beatdown.

Sending 6-5 wings at the 5 spot. Not taking mid-range wide open shots, even when available. Gimmick basketball is awful. They did a lot of great things, but you can do those great things and blend them in with the other stuff. I mean their players would have wide open mid-range shots and not take them. It is too one dimensional. I am very happy this BIG Laker team completely beat them down. It was not even a close series after game 1. It was a complete beat down. They deserved it.

Talent wise, we are not better than Houston. They have 2 stars, and a lot of impact role players. We have 2 stars, and impact role players. It came down to how the teams play.

Think we can get a special edition for the Clips/Nugs Game 6 with the Clips "Fans" perspective?

Here are some:

Yeah sorry to all the optimists here but we are posers until proven otherwise

Truly pathetic display, Doc needs to be on the first train out of LA even if we win this series

We out here looking like a laughingstock, everyone in the (bleep) building knew what was about to happen, INCLUDING Doc, and he just goes and makes the same old (bleep) mistakes and expects Kawhi to bail him out

5 guys waiting around for someone else to make a play, watching Denver shoot wide open shots and not even trying to close out

We just look mentally broken

Quote:
At this point I'd rather lose to the Nuggets in 7 than get whooped by the Lakers. Let's live with the Clippers curse instead of getting clowned by the other LA team.

Quote:
I have no words right now. Kawhi was supposed to lift the clipper curse. Instead he's been absorbed into it. I just need to be quiet and stare at my tv silently all of game 7 and pray to whatever god exists.

We are 100% losing the series. It’s over. I’m actually going to place a big bet on Denver because it’s a sure thing. I (bleep) hate being a clippers fan

This begs the question. So why are people salavating over D’Antoni? The man’s time has passed if you ask me.


I said when he was coaching the Lakers that D'Antoni is not a good coach. Maybe, people are starting to realize that.

Great! The dude had a good idea. Speed the game up. That doesn't make him a good coach though. The dude that decided to put a camera on a cell phone doesn't make him a brilliant electronics engineer.

D'Antoni was one of the worst coaches I've seen while with the Lakers, demanding that they play a style of basketball that didn't fit the players. A good coach puts his players in the best position to succeed. D'Antoni demanded that the players change to fit his system.
