    I haven't kept up with it at all. Ages ago all the hype was for your boy, Simmons, although my brother in law tells me Ingram is now considered #1 => LAL will probably get Simmons unless workouts show up someone as better/worse....

    Simmons is the closest thing to Lebron you are likely to get coming out of college in the next 50 years, if Philly don't take him they are absolute morons

    I heard he doesn't really have a jumper. Gonna need to develop one I reckon. But yeah I heard he has a pretty mean all round game, comparable to Lebron (minus the jump shot).

    It does seem many are still picking him to go #1 but I understand Ingram made up a lot of ground.

    Either way on the face of it Philly and LA could/should both be getting franchise players.

    Not sure it'll help the 76ers, but LA on the other hand I reckon will be interesting next season.

    Irving and Love stank it up today going 4 from 28 from the field and the Raptors got one back on the Cavs. They could really put some pressure on the Cavs if they win their next at home. Hope so!!

    You guys watch the OKC GS game?

    OKC swamped them, they might have been up by 40+ at one stage. My local has them paying $6.5 just to win by 11. I wonder what you could have got for 28 points??

    On a side note Green kicked Adams in the ballz AGAIN tonight. Thats 2 games in a row!! This time it actually looked purposely and if I overheard correctly he may get a games suspension for it.

    The guy is a dick (excuse the pun) I hope he goes for a skate. He's been trying to rile Adams up all series. Adams barely bats an eye-lid but getting kicked in the nuts each game must be wearing a bit thin.

    Verajao has been coming on and getting really rough too! I know Adams asks for it with the way he plays so thats fine, but one has to wonder if it is to the detriment of the GS overall performance??

    If OKC win the next game @ home I reckon they win the series.

    I thought this was over in 4, no way did I pick Raptors playing the way they've played against Cavs at home. I still can't see the Cavs dropping a home game though. They're now 17-2 so I'm thinking they still win it.

    Toronto certainly picked their game up. Lowry and DeRozen lighting it up, but its Biyombo thats been just as key! He pulled down 26 boards in game 3 and had some massive defensive plays in game 4. He's really ignited them. Also Love has been really bad both games and Lebron doesn't take over the game when he needs to (don't know why cause he is easily good enough).

    I can't see the Cavs losing at home though, but you never know, if it comes down to game 7 anything could happen. A ton of pressure on both favs now. Cats have to win at home and GS has to win away today!! Great stuff.

    Assist of the game!! OCK dominating AGAIN.



    Seriously though GS look absolutely lost. Green has completely gotten inside his own head, the effort is not there on transition D by many GS players, every time they cut to their bench they are shaking their heads, all the GS shots are being contested, plain and simple, THEY ARE GETTING OUTPLAYED!!

    Golden State are just too good from perimeter shooting, Klay in game 6 was insane and then Curry grew in confidence in game 7 and finished OKC.

    Going to be a great series, no injuries this time - I reckon Cavs are a big chance.

    Cant believe game 6 got away. The whole game looked liked it was OKC.

    I'm so stoked they did, one of my lady friends and I had a bet on that GS would beat OKC at the start of the series - so won a bottle off her. She has giving me lip all game 6 as well, then Klay happened.

    I keep sending her this.

    Thats a good return HS. Klay did click that latter half, its a joy to see, as is curry. Just feel OKC need some success, otherwise the duo may part ways.

    He's a freak from 3 but he's stats just don't match up to the legends. Which is what he's being touted as.

    What stats you talking about? He's now a 2x MVP. His team hold the games record. He beat his own record for most 3s in a season by over 200. First ever unanimous MVP. Will overtake Ray Allen as the best 3 point shooter ever. That's pretty good considering he's got plenty left to give
