    The Atlanta Hawks crushed the Charlotte Hornets today by a score of 132-103. The Hawks
    start 2 of our guys and bring a 3rd guy off the bench as a key contributor. So they are a good
    team to root for out east along with the Miami Heat and the Chicago Bulls and the Milwaukee
    Bucks. Out west it's either Dallas, Denver or San Antonio.

    In todays Hawks win here is how our guys did.

    Danillo Gallinari 18 points, 3 rebounds and 2 assists
    Kevin Huerter 13 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists & 1 steal

    B. Bogdanovich 13 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist & 1 steal

    Kyrie flipped off Celtics fans 3 times last night! Guess what?! The Racist, White, Boston fans are to blame though!!

    Shannon Sharpe was just on TV sniveling because apparently he's experienced racism before. He Also claims this Country is as racist as it was when muh Dr. King was around. :rolleyes:

    Amazing how even wealthy Blacks resent Whitey so much still.

    Whats worse is that the DWFs continue to play into all rather than calling blacks out for being racist and beneficiaries of the caste system.

    Wasn’t Sharpe attacking Irving a few months ago for being unvaxxed? But now it’s about muh oppression and black solidarity. Irving is a clown too - I give him credit for not giving into the mandate but otherwise just another “oppressed” millionaire playing a kids game. It’s amazing how group think is so ingrained into blacks - whether it’s believing that Whitey is keeping them down, the rap music that spews the same message out generation after generation allowing for the cycle of ignorance to continue, the obsession with instant wealth/materialism etc.

    He was critical over the Covaids issue, but now Race is involved. So yup band together against Whitey. Ridiculous, but seems to be the pattern.

    Anyways I enjoyed watching the Bucks/Bulls matchup last night. For the Bulls Vucevic was a beast! 24pts and 17reb!

    Caruso had 7pts and 3ast

    For the Bucks, Connaughton had a rough night with only 3pts and 4reb.

    Allen didn't shoot much and was held scoreless.

    I expect the trio of Caruso, Connaughton, and Allen to bounce back in Game 2. Vucevic looks like he's primed for a big series as well.

    East is interesting to watch when you add in Hawks and Heat and their gym rats.

    Nikola Jokic is one of 3 finalists announced for the final MVP Voting. I hope he wins it but I predict Embid will get it.

    Tyler herro named finalist for 6th man of the year, and will probably win it. Kevin love is another finalist for the award.

    It's good to see the Mavs bounce back in game 2. Luka Doncic didn't play again but should be ready for game 3 with the series tied at one game each.

    Maxi Kleber had 25 points today so he really helped to pick up the slack with Doncic out.

    Doncic is set to miss his third straight game of this playoffs. What a lousy time to get hurt. Some media bozo declared that his injury was due to being out of shape - this is a past flaw that they're going to pin on him for awhile. Luka's been pretty lean and mean since the all-star break.

    The other white all-pro, Jokic, looks out of his depth so far as a one-man show against all-black Golden State. This series really accentuates how the Nuggets have absolutely nothing else on the roster. Their other "stars" are the injured Jamal Murray and Michael Porter Jr., but I don't recall those guys setting the world on fire. A serious franchise wouldn't squander this window. He has to consider walking after this contract. (as I'm typing this, the Nuggets have tied up Game 3)

    Nice to see Brook Lopez in a groove for the Bucks, but it just plain sucks that Grayson Allen and Pat Connaughton are just filling minutes right now.

    Media has zero problems calling out Doncic, who admitted he was slightly out of shape after a long NBA season and then the Olympics. Pissed Luka is missing playoffs, but next season expect him to be in prime condition.

    All year we've recognized lack of talent on Dallas, but Jokic really is a 1man show with a cast of nobodies! Nuggets are getting exposed. Makes it all that more impressive what he's done since arriving in Denver.

    I missed Bucks/Bulls game. Bummer Allen and Connaughton are struggling

    In a NBA Playoff Battle of White Friendly Teams the Hawks won by 1 point over the Heat. This is a tough series to pick who to root for. I'm slightly
    pulling for the Heat more as Tyler Herro is one of my favorite players in the league. Tyler Herro didn't let the team down as he led the Heat in scoring
    with 24 points tonight while Max Strus scored 20 points!

    The Hawks won behind good games from D. Gallinari 11 points, K. Huerter with 13 and B.Bogadanovich with 18 points! The Hawks trail 2 games to 1 in this
    tough very evenly matched playoff series.

    JJ Redick was doing the color for the Hawks/Heat game. The cuck announcer tried to compare his game to JJ’s. JJ said something to the effect of “I wish I had more of Tyler’s game. You know why our games are compared, right?….our complexion.”

    The Dallas Mavs are about 30 minutes away from playing game 4 in the first round of the playoffs. They lead 2 games to 1 and today will
    finally have Luka Doncic ready to return. I wonder if he will be a little rusty as he has been sitting for a couple of weeks. He may light it up
    or he may struggle a little. It's just gonna be good to see him back out there. If the Mavs advance they will play the winner of the Suns/Pelicans
    Series where Phx should win.

    Raptors/Sixers is unwatchable. The Raptors are literally the African national team. I’m not sure why Korkmaz is completely out of the Sixers rotation, after averaging 20 minutes a game for the regular season.

    Tough loss for the Mavericks. But, Luka is back and scored 30 points. I expect Dallas to win this series and advance to play Memphis.

    They should have never lost this game. Powell went 0-2 from the free throw line with under a minute to play. Then they called Doncic for a foul when he never touched
    Donavan Mitchell. It's called the foul of being white and looking at another player. The Mavs could and should have won this game. It's an unthinkable loss. Can they
    still win the series? Yes but it won't be easy. The Mavs have lost in the first round of the playoffs every year since Doncic has been there. I'm not saying it's all his fault
    as it's a team game but for his Superstar Status in the NBA to go higher he needs to get to at the least an NBA Western Conf. Finals. That being said I do think they will
    learn from this loss. Mavs in 6 games is my pick. I predict the Mavs will go all the way to the 2022 NBA Finals. Let's see how I do with my prediction.

    Grayson Allen scores 27 points in 28 minutes, on 10/12 shooting. Not sure why old man Wesley Matthews is starting and playing significant minutes at shooting guard. He averaged 5 points per game this season. It’s nonsense.

    The Dallas Mavs blew out Utah tonight. Luke Doncic had 33 points in 33 minutes while pulling down 13 rebounds and 5 assists. Doncic also had
    a 1 blocked shot. At one point in the game Doncic tried to do a poster dunk but was fouled. Both teams bench's cleared before play continued. So
    the Mavs are 1 game away from finally getting out of the first round of the nba playoffs. Hope I don't jinx them by saying this.

    I honestly feel they are going all the way to the NBA Championship this year. Positive Vibes Guys! Let's Go Mavs!

    All the sports shows are stomping on the Nets’ grave and got their last opportunity to criticize Kyrie for not taking the jab. NOT ONE mainstream sports talker ever defended an individual’s right to refuse a medical injection. And now, Zach Lavine is put in Covid protocols for 3rd time this season, despite the alleged 99.9% vaccination rate in the NBA including coaches and staff. Nobody will state the obvious: the vaccine is a joke.

    Heat play tonight without Lowry or Butler. So, we will see a lot of Strus, Robinson and Herro.

    The Miami Heat win their 1st round of the playoffs against the Atlanta Hawks by 4 games to 1 to move on to the second round.

    Herro had 16 points and Strus had 15 points. Glad to see Miami playing at a high level even missing 2 of their starters tonight. Hope
    they can keep it rolling in the next round.

    Great post.

    I’ve been seeing the same thing. The narrative that they have so easily painted for the normie is that Kyrie is selfish and cost his team a championship opportunity. They are also mentioning how much of a distraction he was, which while true, is not his fault. The villain here should be the commie former mayor of NYC, deblassio (Bolshevik Bill), for enacting the draconian law in the first place.

    Irving played pretty well when the ridiculous city and team let him. The reality of the Nets failure is a poorly constructed roster, lousy coach and missing Joe Harris more than anyone would care to admit.

    Despite the Nuggets being knocked out of the playoffs Nikola Jokic may win his 2nd straight NBA MVP TROPHY. I hope he does! In this article talking about the
    Nuggets possibly resigning him to the biggest contract in nba history. Nikola Jokic did things this year that no one have ever done in the last 50 years of keeping track
    of these stats. I personally would love to see him leave Denver and join Doncic in Dallas but I doubt that will happen.

    SAN FRANCISCO -- Following a historic season that could lead to a second MVP trophy, Nikola Jokic said he will sign what is expected to be the largest supermax contract extension in NBA history with the Denver Nuggets this offseason.

    Jokic poured in 30 points, 19 rebounds and 8 assists in Game 5 of the Nuggets' first-round series Wednesday night, but they were eliminated with a 102-98 loss to the Golden State Warriors.

    Jokic now is eligible to receive a supermax contract extension that will be worth $254 million over five years, according to ESPN's Bobby Marks.

    "I would like it, of course," Jokic said when asked about a contract extension. "But it's not something that I'm deciding. I think if [the] offer is on the table, of course I'm going to accept it because I really like the organization, I really like the people who works here. I'm in [a] really good relationship with everybody from [the] owner to equipment manager."

    The reigning MVP delivered a historic individual season that could lead to a second consecutive MVP trophy. Jokic, 27, became the first player with 2,000 points, 1,000 rebounds and 500 assists in a season. He also became the first to average 25 points, 13 rebounds and 7 assists in a season, and the first to lead his team in points, rebounds, assists, steals, blocks and field goal percentage in a season since steals and blocks became official in 1973-74, according to research by ESPN Stats & Information.

    Nuggets offseason guide: Denver's solution is already on its roster

    In typical Jokic fashion, the center downplayed his individual success and a possible second straight MVP trophy.

    "I mean, I never dream about it," Jokic said of the possibility of winning a second MVP. "It's something that if it happened, it's a great thing of course. It's something that probably legacy, my name is always going to be there.

    "But if I don't get it, I'm not going to die. ... It would be nice, but if it happens, happens."

    Dallas knocks off the Jazz. Luka with 24/9/8, in a tough, low scoring game. Dallas will face #1 seed Phoenix in the 2nd round.

    Let's Go Mavs! They finally get out of the first round. It wasn't easy and it wasn't pretty but we will take it!

    I believe the Mavs match up very well against the Suns. Chris Paul while being an amazing player is in his late 30's. Booker gets hurt alot. Ayton is
    very talented but at times can be inconsistant. I just can't see the Suns going to the Western Conference Finals 2 years in a row. Mavs in 6 games
    is my prediction!
