Greatest Athletes in the World
- LeBron looked like 1 on 5 against Indianapois
- The Celtics vs Bucks game was what NBA Playoffs is all about
- Someone tell me again why OKC traded James Harden
- Wiggins play for the Timberwolves is similar to his play at KU

Agree with you about the Celtics Bucks game. I usually don't watch much til they get deeper into the playoffs but that was a great game and fun to watch.

The Thunder did everything possible to re-sign Harden, but he didn’t want to share the spotlight with Westbrook. Harden was masterful at making the Thunder look bad in the negotiations. Truth be told, the Thunder took the high road. Harden, not so much.

Harden completely crapped the bed in the Finals when the Thunder lost to the Heat, he was a non-factor. Westbrook and Harden are similar players, both very ball-dominant. The problem for the Thunder was not that they traded Harden, it was that they got absolutely crap for him. They should have been able to get a few pieces to put with Westbrook and Harden, but they got crap in return.

Best game I watched this weekend, although through sleepy eyes, was Pels/Blazers. That was a good game.

Terrific story on a great coach, Quin Snyder, and his Utah Jazz coaching staff. Quin is on the very top tier of the smartest, most capable coaches in the game. Amazing.

I think the Harden trade turned into the draft pick where they got Adams. Certainly not an equal trade, but the big Kiwi has developed into one of the better centers on the planet. He brings some nasty to the team and is obviously not the defensive liability that harden is.

Brad Stephens is going to eventually win a title in Boston. No Irving, Smart, or Heyward and they look pretty competitive. They have maybe the best rookie, not counting Ben Simmons, in terms of what he brings to the team.

I agree with you on Brad Stevens. He is like a Bill Snyder in that his teams may not have the best athletes but they are prepared to compete.
