    Hahaha anyone else see that 45 second stretch in the 2nd quarter where Steph drained 3 three point shots like it was nothing?

    A combination of the collapse of the Bulls and the rise of Donald Trump has me really down and this has clouded my judgment in many aspects of my life. 2016 has been a remarkably shitty year so far and neither of those things are helping.

    I will say that it's obvious they're changing the game and defining this whole generation of basketball and I'm taking it all in as best I can because I know I might not get another chance to see something like this happen again but I refuse to jump on the bandwagon!

    i can't get any enjoyment out of watching a perfect team thoroughly steamroll the league to the point where the playoffs are a foregone conclusion. if all i cared about was incredible plays and Great Team Basketball shit i would watch the Globetrotters

    looking forward to watching these dudes in their early 20s write off the next five seasons while the Bulls fight pointlessly for the 8th seed

    I first noticed it during the OKC - Golden State game from a few days ago. It's pretty weird but I've already gotten used to it.

    I don't think Golden State is a sure thing this year either. The Spurs are really good and you shouldn't dismiss a healthy Cavs team in the playoffs either.

    Kobe's game last night was so awesome. I've never been a huge Kobe fan but I was freaking out watching that last night. When he drained that last three I leaped off my couch.

    Kobe seems like one of the coolest fucking dudes basically ever. Makes MJ seem like the conceited asshole that he is.

    I'm kind of bummed about these recent Steph Curry developments and I really hope his knee is alright.

    I would bet against that. Looked like a MCL sprain to me and I think the diagnoses will be 4-6 weeks recovery. Complete and total bullshit.

    The media landscape around the NBA and it's obsession with narrative is so nauseating at this point that I'll struggle to pay attention the rest of these playoffs if Steph is down. I won't be able to listen to complete disingenuous bullshit about how "going 4 73 wins was the wrong decision and wore Steph down!" and "Kerr rushed his superstar back from injury!" and "now that the luck's run out, this team is finally back down to Earth!!".

    Shit was on Yahoo, though, so it may've just been a typo.
