How about these playoffs!? How little money would you have won predicting the Warriors and Cavs in the finals? The Warriors are a favorite to hate but I'm a long documented KD and Curry fan dating back to when they were drafted. Draymond is badass and Klay is fun shooter to watch. Hard to hate that team for me but get that it's not fun to root for the team that gets one of the best players in the league after setting the regular season wins record.
The finals will be interesting. It's either going to foment the Warriors as one of the all-time great teams winning 2 titles in 3 years while breaking all sorts of records for shooting 3s and winning regular season games. If they win the finals, they will have the best record of any team to win a title since they moved to all series best of 7 and already have the best three-year combined regular season record.
Also, the first round should move to best of 5.
Lebron wins and people start doing more comparisons between him and Jordan for GOAT. At this point, it's becoming real despite a few stinker games. If the Cavs win, Lebron will have beat TOUGH competition to win titles. Jordan beat a Dan Majerle, KJ, Barkley, Payton, Kemp, Mailman, Stockton, Drexler, old Magic Johnson, and a bunch of other jokers. Lebron has had great supporting staff, especially in Miami, and wouldn't have won without them. Same could have been said of Jordan. Paxson made a few big shots and Pippen's development was key to the Bulls getting past Detroit in the eastern conference.
I'm trying to find some light but otherwise, it's been a lot of non-competitive games. I did love watching the Celtics go down by 50 in the garden.
@airloom About to sell a loud and compact PA system.
Ditto. I'm curious. I have powered speakers but I am going to need something different for amplifying mics and computers than the DJ mixer I currently have on hand. I'm helping a group cobble together a mobile A/V set up for just speakers/vocals and computer video presentations with audio. Don't need anything fancy but I thought I'd put it out there in case someone is looking to get rid of gear.
We had full website outtage for several days. It was stressful and annoying but I'm glad it is resolved for now. The future of the board is probably not sustainable but we'll do what we can for now. Thank for your support and patience.
Can't wait for people to hear this whole thing. It's fucking epic.
Some of you all know by buddy Chuck Coffey who has played in a bunch of bands out of Denver over the years (The Facet, Big Timber, etc) and released records on his labels Not Bad Records and Snappy Little Numbers. His current band Spells are playing at the Seward on Saturday. I put this bill together for them and I hope people can make it out. Spells are great live and I'm excited to see all of the bands.

and loving that Lebron is fighting back too. The way he called out Barkley was perfect. The last person who should question someone's character is Barkley. He pulled all sorts of nonsense as a player and whined incessantly to get moved out to Phoenix.
Hot take: this injury may be not the worst thing in the world for the team's focus. It would have been dumb if they made the playoffs as the 8th seed to get crushed by the Warriors. I'd rather see them grow and get a better lottery pick than to prove they are a still slightly below average team. Reminder, 30 teams are in the league and 16 make the playoffs. We'll get back with this crew but I'd rather take our time and build versus make moves to get swept. I remember all of those KG first round playoff exits. After the first one, it got old.
It's a move in the right direction. They are going to catch the Cavs sans Love although they are going to be hungry for a win after losing to the fucking Mavs last night.
Glad to see the wolves finally winning some close games.
League is looking great top to bottom in general. Even the Nets aren't as bad as I expected. I am shocked they are over 9 wins at this point in the season. I love this game!
Looking forward to this on Saturday.
I'd roll the dice on Jackson potentially. He's better than he's playing right now so you're buying low. He is young and scrappy. Not necessarily a pass-first point guard but that's a different change of pace I'm ok with. I couldn't imagine the team just going with Dunn and Tyus solely.
Watched the Lakers vs. Mavs today. Yikes. The Lakers were getting beat by 40! They are who we thought they were. Bottom of the west this year is UGLY! Can't believe the wolves are not that far out of it.
