    I would love to see Det/San... itd be a matchup of solid defense.. good execution and fundamentals.. its what basketball should be all about.. If you dont want to see the series cause you think itd be boring your just as bad as the media/league.

    Don`t worry about it Max.

    The conspiracy gods want the Suns/Cav`s Finals..................


    I can see the NBA, Stern and company salivating at the thought of such a series.

    Thank you Roscoe, I like seeing it in print. We all know it's true, but it's nice to see others are seeing the same stuff I'm seeing.

    I am with you halfway. I have been wondering how long it will take for everyone to figure out that LeBron is more Pippen than Jordan.

    Dwayne Wade on the other hand would be almost as good without the refs. That guy is a killer. The preferential treatment he gets does make it harder for me to enjoy his game, especially when he is playing the Pistons.

    LeBron needs to stop buying into his own hype.

    I had a long day today and heard on Sportstalk Radio here in DC that the Nets won today. I forget who was talking but this idiot had the nerve to say that the Nets could still win the NBA title!!!!

    I kep trying to get through on my cell phone to call this guy and ask him to turn himself in to the nearest drug rehab facility. No luck.

    I understand how everyone is riding the Nets as each NBA season starts...Kidd, Vince, Jefferson......etc. However, I think their best days are behind them.

    Now, I know everyone on this forum understands that this Nets/Cav`s series is the "sacrificial lamb"series. There is no way, well I will not even watch the Finals if either of these teams are in it...

    A phantom call on J-Kidd guarding James.

    Now we are back on track!!!!!!!

    Reggie Miller made a good point about Kidd drawing his defender too close to Vince on that last play. I was hoping for Vince to hit one.

    I wouldn't mind having Jefferson back up Tay and Kidd backup CB.

    OK, so the Nets hit ONE field goal in the 4th quarter tonight...Kidd missed 5 free throws in the last minute...the Nets scored SIX points total in the 4th quarter...and they still won by 11! The Cavs put up a mighty 72 points for the whole game...at home.

    Just when we thought that the suddenly difficult Bulls series might damage us in the next round, the Nets and Cavs turned in what was probably the worst game of the playoffs so far. At least that can let us rest a bit easier, for now.

    Keep hope alive as the Cavs flatline and could not eliminate the underachieving Nets. At one point Nets had a 23 point lead with about 25 seconds left in the 3rd and only scored six points in the 4th qtr to win by 11. They hit one fg and 4 ft's At one point jason Kidd missed 5 straight FT's with under a minute left. luckily for the Nets, the Cavs didn't score any points in the last two minutes. Both teams missed their first 8 & 9 field goals to open the quarter.

    So now the Cavs will have to what the Pistons have to do and win the close out game 6 on the road. Go Nets!!

    Oops, Looks like me and Dumars were typing at the same time, but I stopped to discuss with the wife and he beat me to the punch.

    Maybe this makes be a bad basketball fan, but this series has been unwatchable and sleep inducing.

    The Cavs wrap up the series with a 88-72 victory.
    It's the Pistons VS. Cavs!
