Not going to deny it is a wishful thinking on my part and that is why I said "might". They are still sticking to small ball are they not?

I still think Tim will comeback, Ginobili should either take a pay cut or leave.

But one of my reasons for disliking Lebron is due to the fact that people and experts making comparisons between him and the King, MJ. I know it's not his fault but hate whem they make those comparisons.
Don't listen to that media garbage. Lebron is Lebron and MJ is MJ. I hate player comparison and all that bullshit, there is a reason why I don't watch ESPN.

Ugh. Never going to like Pat Riley. Least favorite member of the entire organization, and a major reason it's so hard to stomach the Heat winning.

It's not just ESPN though. It's every analyst, from NBA.com to NBATv. It's inescapable. And sadly, these are the people with the power to create the narrative, and with their echo chamber, nobody's going to disagree among themselves.

I loathe those comparisons too, but since it's not Lebron's fault I try to brush it aside. But no one is MJ.

As do I, Tim despite being as @Xagzan said," old by NBA standards ", he can still play at high level and has frequently played in many games the same amount or more minutes as younger players. Ginobili, yeah either one of the two.
I know, but unfortunately I do watch ESPN quite a bit and I tend to change the channel or turn off the T.V when they being the Lebron and MJ comparisons.

Same here on Pat Riley.

That's true, on every media sports outlet, there is always at least 1-2 experts or analysts who bring up either the, " Lebron and MJ comparison" or "Is Lebron better than MJ ? " But as I said before I hate both those topics and I know it's not Lebron's fault.

That depends on whether they finally find a quality big man with an inside presence that can play a lot of minutes.

Disappointing. I wanted Duncan to get one last ring and be the first player to win championships in three different decades. He may not be able to get another championship run again.

How about...
Spoiler:
to the Spurs next season

The Boston Celtics and the Brooklyn Nets agree to the mega-trade on NBA draft night.

The Brooklyn Nets get: Paul Pierce, Jason Terry, and Kevin Garnett.

The Boston Celtics get: Gerald Wallace, Kris Humphries, Keith Bogans, Reggie Evans, Tornike Shengelia and three first-round picks (in 2014, 2016, and 2018).

Haha. Change that sign to "Hibbert" and it would be more reasonable, from what I saw.

Dwight joins Rockets. Rockets looking to add Josh Smith by offering Lin and Asik. Looks like Houston will be a contender next season.
