    While LBJ spoke at the podium, Undonis's Malcom X look on the back ground impressed me a lot, brother had made a silent statement for himself.

    I really dig the 'I Promise' thing. Made me well up a little bit. Im really glad to see LBJ maturing every year. I admire him a lot more than most basketball players, not just for talent, but as a role model.

    On a side note, very, very, very happy to see the Lakers get absolutely butt f***ed by OKC. Warms my heart.

    @Panda, please try to keep it clean. We're not choir boys around here but we try to keep the discussion level PG13.

    OKC looked really impressive. They are just tall and fast. Every guard on the team seems to be able to split double teams and find wide open shooters.

    OKC really, really looks good. I don't expect LA to lay down though.

    On a side note, why did Oklahoma let Frito Lay design their logo? I just can't imagine buying a Durant, Harding, or Westbrook jersey with that logo on the front.

    Well, actually, I WAS a choir boy. Back in 1943-1949. But I was older then, I'm younger than that now... :-)

    It still makes me sick to think that that could've been Seattle Sonics.

    So many LBJ haters.

    Sorry Roscoe. I can't edit my post =(

    Next time I will focus less on Lebron and more on LA and promiscuous man love.

    I don't think it could have been. As much as I want to hate Clay Bennett, the real villain is Howard Schultz. Oklahoma took a terrible, terrible team and turned it around completely in 3 years.

    As long as Schultz owned that team and they stuck with the bargain basement plan, they would still be basement dwellers.

    Of course, I would rather have a crappy NBA team than NO NBA team.

    Some great basketball on this evening. Celtics played some serious playoff ball in Philly to take the lead. Lakers and Thunder battling it out to the end. Great, great game!

    Tough couple of days for the fans in LA. Spurs still look legit, Durant, Westbrook, and Harden are clutch like Kobe, Fisher and Horry were a few years back.

    Spurs looking like a the best team in the NBA at the moment. They've won 16! straight games since the end of the regular season, 5-0 in the playoffs, with an average win margin of, I believe, 16 ppg. That's crazy, and the Clips don't seem to have an answer for them either. CP is the engine that makes everything go in Clipper Land, and the Spurs' defense/his nagging injury successfully contained him last time out. Their lack of defense is also getting exposed big time; you can't win if you don't stop the other team, and they didn't.
    Oh, and go Pacers! If they can beat the heat, they have a fair shot against Boston.

    The Spurs and the Pacers are the feel-good stories of these playoffs.

    Spurs-Thunder series is going to be a lot of fun to watch. High energy youngsters vs the crafty old farts.

    If the Lakers and the Heat get bumped or even go to the brink, my interest level in the playoffs will sky rocket.
