After the last few years the Bucks are gonna be doubted until they prove people wrong. I just can’t pick them to win this series.

Same. Dwight last year should be the model for role players’ mentality— make the most of whatever minutes you get and don’t let lack of minutes discourage you.

High priced guys who have never won have a harder time because in this case both guys are playing for next contract. They should be fine but we will be even tougher if they embrace it.

Good point. I suppose this is a chance to see how effective a player manager Vogel is (I think he’s been good so far).

Man if the W’s won we could have potentially seen 3+ higher seeds lose in the first round between them/jazz, Lakers/suns and heat/bucks. Maybe Memphis can pull off the upset though. Still not sold on Utah after their implosion last year.

What’s everyone predicting for the mavs-clippers series? I’m thinking 6/7 game series that could go either way.

Can’t believe they called that FT clock violation. That was 11 seconds, for sure. But man, Trezz goes to 15 sometimes.

That 10 second FT violation is bogus. They should use a shot clock, counting by hand is so subjective. I did a replay and counted with my pace and it was not 10 seconds. one 1 thousand, two 1 thousand.. that's so scientific, huh? LOL!

lol this game is so ugly to finish. Giannis got Karl Malone'd - a 10 second violation on a FT! - and both team's offenses are junk.

Giannis can't hit FTs worth crap, Jimmy refuses to shoot jumpers, just garbage all around.

It starts the moment he touches the ball, right? I didn't get 10 seconds with my pace, maybe I'm slower. LOL! Now it's in his head. He's rushing and going 1 for 2 every time.
