Not who do you think will win the EC. But who do you root for?

I root for MIA. Love me some Jimmy Buckets.

Nets, raps, nyk, bucks

Ja went down on that drive, eventually got up and limped to midcourt where he's sitting against the scorer's table. Grizzlies training staff is helping Ja to the locker room. Looks to be a left leg injury.

Celtics offense gotta be the best I've seen. The question is how sustainable it is long term.

I just saw a highlight of Ja and that he got an ankle injury. I certainly hope it's nothing too bad.

Did you see him knocking over a ladder down on the ground so he could practice FTs after the game? He was a little upset shall we say. Lol

Apparently Philly is not very hospitable to visitors.

Whenever the fam sees me watching a non-Laker game, they ask me who I'm rooting for...the answer is always the same...to make sure there is no misunderstanding or confusion. I'm ALWAYS rooting for the Lakers. If I'm watching a game with the Lakers not in it then whichever team loss helps the Lakers the most, I'm rooting for them to lose...I NEVER root for any other team to win.

Also, if a C's or Clips win would benefit the Lakers then I can't watch that game.

You guys sound like some soulless robots.

I'm imagining you guys at your child's basketball game. Your kid hits a game winner. Everyone's excited. Your kid asks you what you think. And you say, "neither team playing was the Lakers... therefore I wasn't rooting for you, nor do I care."

That's interesting. I like his defensive instincts. If he develops right. He has Jrue Holiday level upside.

I feel ya.
I'm tired of the Nets teasing me. They have all the talent. But will Durant, Kyrie, and Simmons ever play together? I swear, the Nets never have their players on the court. There's always some incident or injury.
Even when Harden was there.

Dallas Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic beat Los Angeles Lakers legend Magic Johnson to the 50 triple-double milestone by a game. Doncic’s 33-point, 12-rebound, 11-assist performance in Friday’s 127-99 win over the visiting Denver Nuggets made him the 10th player in NBA history to record 50 career triple-doubles. Doncic accomplished the feat in his 278th career game, one fewer than it took Johnson. Only Oscar Robertson (111) needed fewer games to get 50 triple-doubles. – via Tim MacMahon @ ESPN

Mainly because he is an Illini.

That league is probably worse than some of the recreational leagues in the US.

Misunderstanding...It's not that I don't care, or wasn't rooting for someone, it's that I'm ALWAYS rooting for the Lakers. The soulless robots comment shows some insight but to understand you gotta think in the opposite end of the spectrum...like programmed extremist or zealot. If somehow my son's team can lose and it benefits the Lakers then I'm not even sorry son...Go Lakers!!!!!!

Clarkson and Ingram are out here closing games for their teams and securing Ws.
I feel like their time with Kobe all those years back helped them become the players they are today.

Western conf playoff and play-in teams looks pretty set except for GS catching someone.

Trail Blazers and Jazz are the only 2 I could see falling out eventually, but Jazz look like they will make it unless Danny decides to sell and hoard more picks.

No wonder the Pellys stay injured. They're jumping all over each other during the player intros before the game even starts. Jonas Valanciunas was straight tackling folks
