I was frustrated because they didn’t explain the bulls situation better during the draft. I legit thought bulls still had a chance for top 4 Pick when they got 8th pick in reality.

I am honestly surprised the Clippers advanced with PG carrying the team. Even more surprised they have been competitive in games 1 & 2. I know CP3 is out but Leonard is probably the most talented player left in the playoffs.

Bucks vs suns
Easy to say when only 4 teams are left and the Suns are up 2-0 and the Bucks are like -500 to win that series.
Had you called that when the series started, I would have gave you props. I had Brooklyn beating the Lakers in the finals
As long as Le-Queen isnt in the finals, I'm a happy camper!

Bulls gonna go after Lonzo this offseason? They really need a true PG, to even dream about making a deep playoff run.
Was really wishing they jumped in to the top 4 last night
A lot of people have the Bulls linked to Lonzo. I'm not sure how I feel about it. They need a true PG, but I'm not sure he is the answer.

I'm surprised they beat Dallas in the first round when they were outmatched most of the series. Utah was hobbled too, so it was anyone's series.

Phoenix lucked out by having Payne play the best basketball of his career during CP3 absence. If CP3 doesn't miss time, it's a straight sweep IMO. We will see when he comes back and how he plays when he does.

Milwaukee had no business winning that series. Harden and Kyrie injuries killed Brooklyn, and Joe Harris looked like Joe the Plumber. Getting destroyed by 49 points really lit a fire under their ass and I was surprised by that.

That being said, I think Milwaukee steamrolls Atlanta. Atlanta isn't that good of a team, I'm surprised they've made it this far.

I picked the bulls from the beginning. Do I get props?

I have honestly found this to be the most entertaining playoffs in years for the NBA No clear favorite. Tons of blown leads/upsets. The 4 teams that are remaining haven't won shit in a long time. A bunch of games have come down to the wire/OT.

He can definitely run the point imo, not a great scorer or shooter for that matter. But I dont think we need him to be.
Would probably be a top 3 defender on the Bulls lol.

I agree 100%.

Atlanta choked this one away. They let Middleton outscore them in the 4th all by himself.

I miss Bobby Portis on the Bulls. Can't believe they moved him for breaking Mirotic face. That's the kind of dude you want on your team.

We were watching the game last night and my son started trying to buy tickets for the Finals immediately afterwards. He bought two tickets for both game 4 and game 6. He is a huge NBA fan and going to a Final is a dream of his. He paid $500 for each ticket. He is hoping it goes 6 and he will sell those tickets for big money and offset the $1k for his tickets.
