    The Cavaliers seem to have finally figured out that ball movement is a key to a potent offense.

    I think GSW loss to the T-Wolves was a good thing to wake them up. The record is meaningless compared to the titles and last night by beating the Spurs they secured Home Court as long as they advance.

    Conspiracy theory time: The Sixers and Sam Hinkie have parted ways, so Adam Silver must be giddy, as now the greatest "buck the system" GM is out of work.

    So, now it's time for the NBA to stop punishing the Sixers. Sliver arranges it so that the Sixers get the first pick and the Lakers' fourth pick, rewarding them for getting rid of Hinkie and bringing on Jerry Colangelo and his son, Brian Colangelo.

    Yay!

    The Pistons are in the playoffs for the first time in a long time. I am under no illusions that they will go very far, but it is a huge step in the right direction for the program.

    Damn Heat. They can't put away Orlando in the final minutes. Yeah we're in the playoffs but we'll probably be the somewhere between the 4th and 6th seed, or lower. Great, they're competitive, but I don't see them going past the second round (or maybe even the first round).

    They did it: 73-9. A new record!

    And Kobe gets 60 points in his final game!

    Was Kobe retiring, or something?

    Why didn't the media cover it?

    I didn't know The Heat were a 3 seed. Go Heat. Let's see how far we go.

    The Pistons put up a good fight today. They may not be going anywhere in the playoffs this year, but they are more fun to watch then they have been in a decade.

    I think the Dubs have proven by now that they can win without Curry, even against elite teams. It's not like they have no other options. He'd be back (IF that timetable works out) for the Western Conf. Finals (likely against the most elite team they'll play before they play the Cavs).

    If I'm Eric, I'm not worried.

    My understanding is that a sprain is what they call a partial tear of the ligament. For that to heal, you can't be putting stress on it. I'm not a doctor, but 2 weeks sounds like a stretch for it to fully heal.

    I didn't know Linsanity was playing with Charlotte. What drama queen.

    The Pistons bow out in 4 which was disappointing, but there is still a lot of positive stuff for a team that has not made the playoffs in a long time. I think they are a player or two away from being a power in the East next year. They are definitely moving in the right direction.

    Watch out for the buzz & sting boys!

    If Wade's injuries keep him from being Wade, imo this series is over.

    Of course I'm rooting for Frank the Tank.

    Shortly after I posted that, your boys went on a 17-1 run that got them close, and it was close the rest of the way.

    Well, the Clips weren't going to win it all, but they're really toast now.
