    Anothe big game for cp3 and book. 2-0 suns.
    Giannis destroyed the Suns last night - when Ayton is not on the court they have no answer for him and he looks locked in right now. Last night could be a turning point, predicting Bucks in 7 with a historic series for Giannis.

    Yep happens a lot in the playoffs home team will go 2-0 up then blow it on the road to go 2-2.

    Giannis though like you definitely ain't laying down to no one. Some block!!

    Amazing achievement from the Bucks to win 4 straight after being 2 down.

    So happy for Giannis, one of the all time great finals appearances.

    Well done to the Bucks, been chapping on the door for a couple of years now


    next year should be really competitive I think, the lakers are already looking to retool, warriors will have their big 3 back and probably another big name in the door in a trade for wiseman, Nets will be desperate to change the narrative around them with each of their big 3 needing a title to prove something to themselves and/or the world. Bucks will be back as champs, heat will be strong, Iím hoping the Bulls can get a decent PG in and hopefully make a wee playoff run (no serious aspirations beyond that hahaha), the Jazz will come back strong, so will the Suns and Nuggets. Probably other teams Iíve forgotten about as well, already looking forward to it

    Absolutely delighted! Giannis was a beast and had one of the great finals games last night. Not sure Bucks can win it again with this year's team though - as you say Warriors, Lakers and Nets will all be strong - I think Philly can compete too if they can trade Simmons away for Lillard, so an interesting summer ahead. Wouldn't write off Suns/Hawks either!

    think youíre right about philly, if they can get a lights out shooter who can bring some creativity as well, theyíll be incredibly dangerous

    lillard is an interesting one, I think he wants out of Portland but doesnít want to say it publicly for fear of possible backlash being the main man there. That said, I donít know if Portland are ready to let him go either, could see them trying to move McCollum and keep lillard, and hopefully pair him with a decent or dominant big man who can cover the rim

    Anyone to look out for in the draft?

    not too sure tbh, kinda tuned out of that a bit when the bulls traded away their pick


    Cade Cunningham seems to be pretty much the consensus first pick for most commentators, but not all. Also seems to be a large proportion of teams keen to trade up, down or even out of the draft, so a lot of moving parts

    also seems a bit of a meh draft, couple of decent prospects but no one earth shattering, and not really anyone bringing a lot of narrative

    still, itíll be fascinating to see how the league moves and twists around the draft, then thereíll be free agency soon after

    Interesting first day or so of free agency, chuffed the bulls managed to get Lonzo Ball, although I have to say Iím not that chuffed theyíve signed Alex Caruso, I think heís a wee dick hahaha

    lakers throwing every dollar they can muster at anyone whoíll sign, their tax bill will be astronomical

    steph signs another $200 mill + contract, first player to ever sign multiple such contracts

    Lowry to the heat, whilst Conley and probably CP3 staying put for big money

    still a few reasonably big names and kawhi to sign on somewhere.

    New season started, Warriors looking good, Steph looking ominous

    My Bulls seem to have started well, Lakers not so much 😄

    Great start for the Bulls this year, hope they can make the playoffs, personally wanted to see Derrick Rose return but sadly wasn't to be! Lakers have a lot of really good players but doesn't seem to be happening for them on the floor - Ja Morant was by far the best player on the court the other night against them. Any thoughts on the Simmons situation??? Trade for Kyrie would make sense to both teams in my opinion, Philly couud use a shooter to really make them contenders and Nets need an elite defender...

    Simmons is in a really tough situation (partly of his making), he wants out, but his performances donít warrant another team throwing a lot into a deal for him, whilst the 76ers want a treasure trove, which they wonít get. I think what weíve seen for the last couple of weeks, Simmons playing silly buggers and the Sixers making a show of following protocols will last for a bit of time yet, and eventually a team like the Kings will end up trading for him, the Soxers wonít get anything like what they want, but will manage to get a reasonable amount for him, and heíll probably do ok somewhere like that. A trade for kyrie makes sense on some levels, but the Sixers would probably want reassurances that heíll toe the line (unlikely) and would be available to play (wouldnít be able to play in certain states due to covid regulations). Think the nets wouldnít be far from doing that trade though.

    Kyrie is a law unto himself, Iím not sure what will happen there. Any team trading for him runs a high risk that heíll take time off when it suits him (for various reasons), thereís the covid vaccination stuff going on with him, and heís occasionally a distraction, whilst also being an exceptionally gifted player.

    I was hoping Rose would go back to Chicago as well, but the Knicks threw a pile of money at him.

    The Lakers are dysfunctional, but will win plenty games through individual talent. Iím not a LeBron fan at all, so quite content theyíre not looking great hahaha
