Like I said people will always argue it. They ignore how many times Jordan lost in the first round. I think losing in the finals is a better accomplishment than losing in the first round. I'm funny like that. How many titles a player wins depends on how good the teams he played on were. It really doesn't matter how many titles a player wins for greatest of all time. Etc....... you can't prove the GOAT, but LeBron gets one with the Lakers that will make 3 teams he led to the title. 4 titles Most likely 4 finals MVPs. He should have had another finals MVP on the losing team, but he was robbed of that one. Was it given to Iguodala? I don't recall for sure. He took a Cavs team that had no chance and beat the greatest regular season team ever the Golden State Warriors.
Go LeBron Greatest of all Time.
Russell played on teams that were so stacked there was no chance of them losing. It was like pros playing amateurs.

Three Game 5s set for Wednesday postponed after Bucks' decision to not take floor

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — The Milwaukee Bucks’ decision to not take the floor for Game 5 of their first round playoff series against the Orlando Magic promoted the NBA to postpone all three games scheduled for Wednesday.

The NBA said the three Game 5s (Bucks-Magic, Houston Rockets-Oklahoma City Thunder, Los Angeles Lakers-Portland Trail Blazers) would be rescheduled.

"We’re tired of the killings and the injustice," Bucks guard George Hill told ESPN’s Marc Spears, in explaining his team’s decision.

Maybe bad timing to decide to stop playing IDK. From the reports I have seen it looks like the shooting may be somewhat justified. Just a bad dude, doing a bad thing, at a bad time.
Also unfortunately I don't think the news media want the real truth to come out. For the news media it's often more about political posturing than truly caring about social justice.

If it was an isolated case, I could see that. But just being another in a seemingly endless string of events, I can appreciate what the players did.

And even though it looks like games will start up again, props to LeBron, Kawhi and the Lakers and Clippers organization for speaking up and voting to just end the season. From a basketball standpoint, probably the two teams with the most to lose.

Consider how many Black men are killed by police while performing their duties and how many of the killings were justified. Then consider how many Black men are murdered by other Black men with no justification whatsoever. Where is the outrage over that? There's video of a local police officer in my community of Flagstaff being killed because he hesitated. Where is the outrage over that? White people are killed by the police while performing their duty. Where is the outrage over that? Sure there are some police who are racially biased, but I think that is an incredibly small minority. Some officers are overzealous in their jobs and tragedies like George Floyd happen. Is there any evidence that was racially motivated? I wish these athletes would protest Black on Black crime even more vigorously than they protest police brutality. It would do a lot more good.
As mentioned the media should be reporting the horror of all the gang violence that the police are doing their best to prevent. But that doesn't boost ratings I guess.
Here's a good video regarding the Jacob Blake incident.

The National Basketball Association and the NBA players union announced Friday that playoff games will resume Saturday after a three-day strike in response to the shooting of Jacob Blake, and announced additional steps the league will take to promote social justice and civic engagement, including establishing polling locations in NBA arenas for the upcoming election.

As part of the agreement with players, the NBA will establish a social justice commission with representation from players, coaches and governors, which will focus on such issues as "increasing access to voting, promoting civic engagement and advocating for meaningful police and criminal justice reform."

NBA teams will work with election officials in all cities where teams own their arena to "convert the facility into a voting location for the 2020 general election," in order to allow voters to vote in-person more safely during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Well, I'm sure you have an endless supply of opinions, and more importantly will beat them to death to prove you are right in something that has no right or wrong answer.

So.... suck it weirdo. I got my guys and am done playing.

Bucks in trouble down 0-2

Didn't like the foul call on Giannis as time expired. Earlier in 4th every call seemed to go Miami's way.

This is the one thing about BB that bothers me. seems the ref's pretty much can dictate who wins down the stretch. I know they've implemented some replay but not on fouls.

Now Bucks down 0-3

Led most of the game but the heat just destroyed them in the 4th qtr

Giannis looks a bit lost. Missing easy shots and dribbling the ball off his toe a couple times.

B-ball is hard to watch. Mostly consists of players jacking up three point attempts or drives to the basket that result in some bogus call. Then sometimes there is 15-30 seconds of players jawing with the refs, and sometimes there is a review... only to be told after a minute+ the play is not reviewable.

Stop refs from giving these manufactured stars the star treatment, i.e. call the game at least semi-legitimately
Reduce the amount of team timeouts by 33%
If a team goes over a foul limit, just give the other team two points
Reduce player foul limits from 6 to 5
Call traveling
Limit reviews to the last minute (one each per team)
Keep things moving after a foul is called, call a tech on a player that impedes things

Rework the three point concept. Maybe move the line out or make it worth only 2.5 points.

I keep thinking one of these years a post player will rediscover the sky hook. Somebody tall should be able to practice that to the point of it being damn near automatic.

Someday we will see it. Nobody will be ready for it and nobody will have the personnel to control it. Curry pulled the game way out and someday somebody will pull it back in.

I do agree on timeouts, the last 3 or 4 minutes of college and pro basketball is damn near unwatchable with all the timeouts. Makes baseball seem like it is moving at the speed of light.

Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey is stepping down, sources told ESPN.

In the aftermath of Houston's elimination from the NBA's restart in Orlando, Florida, Morey approached owner Tilman Fertitta with the idea of leaving the job, and the sides quietly worked through an exit agreement to conclude his 13 seasons running the franchise's basketball operations, sources said.


So now Morey, Rosas, McNair and D’Antoni all gone from Houston. Crazy. I guess Tilman Fertitta's money problems are as bad as it sounds.

If you're enumerating the things "gone" from the Rockets, you should probably include future #1 draft picks too.

Glad to see the Lakers tie the Celts for most NBA championships. They were led by two superstars who wanted to come to LA, with one of them expected to resign. It's true they failed to sign LaMarcus Aldridge for whatever reason(s), but the 17th title IMO puts to rest the myth that the aura of L.A. is no more.

Now to the offseason. Anybody want to sign a valuable member of numerous championship teams? Call 1-800 Danny Green. Yours for a mere $15 million. You can have Kuzma too, although with his current contract he is a value.

It looks like Miami will be a top contender next year. Golden State is being talked about a lot, but not sold on them. Denver looks to have a bright future. Read yesterday several Clippers were torqued about Kawhi's preferential treatment. Being able to rest up in San Diego then on numerous occasions be late for team meetings was one of the reported issues.

Wow. This story I didn't know:

Keith Olbermann@KeithOlbermann
The late Sid Hartman created the Lakers. And he moved on when the owners vetoed the trade he had arranged to get them the rights to a rookie center named...Bill Russell.
