    The fakers (lakers) have zero bench scoring. Even against okc, who can bring in harden and fisher, they cant match that. And san antonio can bring in captain jack, ganobli, and neal.

    I'm enjoying the new Linkin Park track, but TNT is going to kill it for me.

    Man, if only someone took Philly...

    Philly and boston will be an interesting series.
    San antonio will be lucky if they get the clippers rather than memphis, much better matchup for them.

    So let me get this straight, if Philly wins, I send less beer out than if the Bulls were to win this round and lose next round?

    I'm suddenly down with that :grinning:

    Of course, I would have preferred Rose and Noah not get hurt and the Bulls parade their way to a championship, but if you're going to lose, might as well lose fast...

    Mark you correct.
    Kudos to okc, san antonio, and soon to bos, philly, miami, lakers, clippers, and indy for moving on :-)

    Im going to have to get Chris Pauls address and send him a beer. He is carrying the Clips.

    The Grizz have been folding like cheap lawn chairs... I hope you enjoy some North Carolina beer

    This is obviously biased in my favor, but if you lose to a team without an owner, i think a better system would be sending beer to the owner of the team that beats the team that beat you. Just my $.02.

    Not sure whether to be happy or sad about the Bulls' win last night... I think happy. For now.

    In case anyone was wondering, this was easily the strangest playoff series I've ever seen. Oh well. At least I owe less beer now :grinning:

    I like the sound of that! Are we sending during the playoffs or waiting for it all to be done?

    You better be ready to send some to me!

    Conversate me an address and I'll kick this sucker off.

    This BIF did not line up nicely for the Celtics.

    Looking like the 2nd half of this Grizz/Clips game is going to be entertaining. Hoping for a Game 7!

    Woohoo! Still alive. Great series

    Holy cow, this game is a street fight. Which it should be. I like when the refs pretty much swallow the whistle in game 7. Wish my Nuggets had received the same treatment.

    Feeling good about the Pacers' ability to compete with Miami after today, should be a good series Shag!

    Like I said the pacers could be scary.. Losing Bosh does not help me

    MarkIntihar Initiate (0) Mar 17, 2010 Michigan

    I wonder if there has ever been a more injury filled playoffs than this year. This shit is ridiculous. I would say right now OKC is the runaway favorite, but I know if I said that, Durant will break his collarbone or something. Unreal.

    Should be a great series my friend!

    Man that was a great game last night

    Minus the officiating (on both sides). Sooooooo many blatantly missed calls, and phantom fouls.
     
  32. pschul4

    pschul4 Initiate (0) Jan 7, 2011 Illinois

    So if you have 10 missed calls and 10 phantom fouls doesnt it balance? I only caught the last minute of the game (aka the best part) so I missed most of the fouls youre talking about :stuck_out_tongue:
     
  33. MarkIntihar

    MarkIntihar Initiate (0) Mar 17, 2010 Michigan

    Sure, it balances, but it doesn't change the fact that it's terrible officiating. Call fouls that are fouls, and don't call fouls that didn't happen. Seems so simple, doesn't it? :wink:

    Also, Wade is lucky he didn't get tossed for bull rushing Collison (was it him or George Hill? can't remember). And that's all I'm gonna say about that.

    That's how I feel about Free Throws! Blake gives me a friggin heart attack every time he steps to the line
     
  35. Shagtastic

    Shagtastic Initiate (0) Jul 30, 2011 Indiana

    The issue is that Lebron has played about 83 minutes and has had 1 foul. No one is that clean. My team for the BIF is the heat but I'll root for the Pacers because they're my hometown team. Would love to send some beer out with this loss.

    Part of me can't believe the Bulls lost to the Sixers. The other part of me is glad I don't have to watch them lose to the Celtics.

    You are forgetting about my spurs. They haven't lost a game in the last month. Deeper than okc, plus leonard will be guard durant adequately. Spurs role players (splitter, diaw, captain jack, neal, green) as a starting five could beat the celtics, clippers, or philly.
     
  39. MarkIntihar

    MarkIntihar Initiate (0) Mar 17, 2010 Michigan

    I just don't think San Antonio has the legs to keep up with OKC's up and down style. Would definitely be a great series though.

    Two problems exist for okc- 1)turnovers. They turnover the ball more than any other team in the league, worse than the bobcats. This will catch up with them.
    2) style pf play/matchups- san antonio plays identical to okc, only better. They were 2&3 in the league in scoring. Neither relies on inside scoring, but rather 3's and midrange shots from the pick and roll. The only playoff team who could have beat the spurs was memphis because the spurs are soft inside. Okc (and miami without bosh) does not get any offense from 8 feet in.

    Either way, okc and san antonio is the true nba finals (if miami does not get bosh back)
