I'm pretty much ready to call him the best ever.  If he can maintain this level of dominance for another 2 seasons, I don't think there's an argument to be made denying him the honor.  If anything, his accomplishments have been underappreciated.

I guess I'm rooting for the Rockets. I've caught a few games but haven't been as focused.

Saw the Raptors fired Casey.  Not sure what they hope to gain by it.

 

On a side note, I think Becky Hammon would be a really good fit in Milwaukee.  The timing's good with her having matriculated through the Coach Pop school of excellence.  Milwaukee has the young talent led by a fairly humble superstar where a new coach can find success while being in a small market where her every move wouldn't be hyper-scrutinized so that any time a player gets complains about being taken out of a game it'd be national news.

 

It might work or it might not, but if anyone's waiting around for a perfect set of circumstances to give Hammon a chance, I don't think it's going to come much better than this.

Coach Pop school of excellence? There's not a lot of good fruit on that coaching tree.

The only knock on Lebron's career I think is that he went 2 for 4 in Miami. Probably should have went 3 for 4. But other than that, I mean not much else you can say. The 5 greatest ever are Lebron, Michael, Russell, Wilt, Kareem. The order is subjective but Lebron belongs in that top 5.

Eh, I think Kerr learned a lot playing for the Spurs that carried over. He was probably the first

He didn't learn anything from Phil Jackson?

I'm just saying you can't give Pop a coaching credit for Kerr. You could probably give Phil credit for Kerr's GM'ing lol.

Depends on your POV I suppose.  He's certainly got the deepest coaching tree and a lot of them have enjoyed success (Budenholzer, Mike Brown, D'Antoni), especially if you include players.

We complain, but there's not a better match-up between East and West.

LOL at JR Smith. His blunder might be the difference between the Cavs pulling off a great upset to the Warrior sweeping the series.

I'll never get over that.

 

Well, reality is the Warriors would still win in 5 or maybe 6. But last night would have allowed hope to live.

 

Never hope.

JR is gonna JR.

Cleveland will probably win the 1st game at home and then just crumble. Warriors will win it in 5.
