Ok, one more time.

The last two games I think I jinxed the Wizards by using angry angry phrases.

So this time, I'm asking politely.

Please beat the Cavs. Please Butler, Jamison and Arenas?

Me love you long time.

The Wizards vs cavs remind me a lot of the Suns vs Spurs. The fans all believe that the Wizards and Suns have the talent and can win the series but every year they both fall short.

Crazy that all teams down 2-0 that played last night won, especially the rockets. I thought for sure they were going to get swept.

Well hopefully Dallas and Phx can continue that trend.

Wow, Suns down 14 at the half. What is going on?

Come on Suns, don't go out like this. Pull it out in the 2nd half. Block people out! Spurs getting way too many easy layups.

Yeah I'm shocked. This was supposed to be the best series in the whole first round, and it's the only one that's 3-0 right now...

lol! I laughed hard about Kenny Smith getting rammed by the car. Even the shoes were left behind.

btw, what do you guys think about Kobe's jump over an running Aston Martin?

Amen to that. Now, if it will ever be the best series in the first round ever, the Suns will have to win their last four straight. But given that it's never been done in the NBA even once, and the fact that the Spurs have the Game 7 at home, I don't see that happening.

Suns are done, only 2 or 3 teams in all of sports have ever come back from a 0-3 deficit. It'll be interesting to see what changes will be made in the offseason.

Didn't they come back from 0-3 against the Lakers awhile back or was that 1-3? Anywayz I'm still hoping for the Suns, no matter how bleak it may seem for them. One of the beauties of basketball is that anything can happen.

Also that Kenny Smith vid was just absolute gold! Thanks for sharing Ice Climbers And for Shiroi Len: I personally think the Kobe vid was fake. He could probably do it but I doubt Kobe's gonna take such a risk like that just to sell some shoes.

It was 1-3. Kobe lost steam later on in the series.

As for the Kobe vid, he wasn't in line with the car. But seeing it from the way we saw it made it seem as if he was.

The Kobe Bryant video was fake, but the Kenny Smith video was real.

Yep. Two of the worse players in the league defending the P&R. And D' Antoni should be replace. There isn't much of a offense out there and any sufficient adjustments offensively made to accommodate Shaq. The offensive looks as bad as Mike Brown's...

3-1 Laker lead.

Parker totally just exploited the pick and roll in the first two games, and in the second he hit jumpshot after jumpshot after jumpshot. Game over, Suns. Fire Kerr and let O'Neal retire. Your dreams of winning a championship were achievable back when Barkley still led your team. For now, gb2/basketballcamp/.

I don't think Phoenix is in straits that dire. Give them 2 or 3 years and they can easily be a championship contender again. As long as Phoenix have Amare they only need 1 other star and some decent role players to be a contender. Both Nash and Shaq's contracts end within two years, and that will free up like 30 million in salary cap for them to sign good free agents.

The Kurt Thomas trade was worse for the Suns than the Shaq trade. Trading for Shaq was going to be a gamble. Giving away Kurt Thomas just to stay under the luxury cap was going to be painful.

The problem with the Shaq trade was that it greatly exposes the other Suns players' defensive weaknesses.

Marion was their best help defender, so he could mask some of the deficiencies. Plus, with Marion, they could run up and down the court. Say what you want about running n gunning in the playoffs, but at least that scheme hid much of their defensive liabilities.

Shaq is the one player that will slow down the tempo the greatest that they could have traded for. Yes, he gives the Suns an inside presence, but it's at the cost of slowing their game down significantly.

Forced to play a half-court game, the Suns are just going to get exposed on defense. And Hack-A-Shaq is going to make them pay on offense if Shaq can't convert his free throws.

Kurt Thomas is now with the Spurs, right? Talk about revenge by him.

I think the Heat made a better change. Wade's not bad, but he was slowed down by injuries last year. Marion will help the Heat more in the future compared to Shaq, who is noticeably getting older. I don't mean that Shaq's not good anymore: he is still great and possesses a lot of inside presence, but I don't know why he's rapidly sucking (compared to people like Jabbar, who still averaged about 15-17 points even when he was 40).

Anyway, I hope the Rockets win. They're the only underdog I'm really rooting for, because Tracy McGrady needs to win at least one series. And really now, who expects Utah to win the championship?

Rockets lost @@ a close game, but Okur saved Utah, series go back to Houston 3-1

Same goes with Toronto, 3-1 series going back to Orlando

man, seems like the Nuggets totally gave up (as shown here)

Go LAKERS!!

Hawks got a big win though, avoids sweep like many projected ^^
