    His act is getting old, around here.

    Definitely to each his/her own, YMMV and IMO, but I find Kevin Hart to be close to talent-less and won't watch him in anything at all.

    I had to Google Kevin Hart. Never heard of him. I thought he was probably a ball player. *shrug*

    I think he can be funny, but the way he tries to insert himself around here gets annoying.

    We'll see what happens, but you might be right here, Vic. I don't think he's practiced with the team, yet. But I know that he wants to play, badly.

    I heard that Embiid has a history of being injured and missing games.

    My heart goes out to Spurs coach Popovich. His wife of 40 years passed away yesterday after a long illness.

    Condolences to Pop.

    I didn't see game 3 but listening to sports talk now. I'm not gonna burn my Heat hat, but if Hassan Whiteside is still on this team next season ........burn baby burn! The guy is useless. Some players are mediocre but you still root for them. Hassan Whiteside is that kid on the team that never looks in the mirror and blames everyone else for all his worthlessness. I partly blame Spoelstra too. But it's difficult to like a guy like Hassan Whiteside. He's a whiner, an overgrown, immature boy. Sixers in six.

    All of Philadelphia now officially hates Justise Winslow, Kelly Olynyk and Dwayne Wade.

    Whiteside has had no effect on this series. A guy on the radio today said that Kevin Hart has had more impact on this series than Whiteside.

    That's exactly the issue with Whiteside......no impact whatsoever. I just don't know what they're gonna do with him.

    ^ 2 years ago he was looked upon as an up and coming talent, and one of their best players. What happened?
    He did not know that the sword he'd hold, would turn his priceless empire into fool's gold...

    Whiteside was supposed to be our "big man" defensive player, rebounding, blocking, etc. He was good, and the team invested in him. Then he got a nice pay raise. But through it all, he always had a bad attitude. He blew up at the media a couple weeks ago, complaining that he "doesn't get enough minutes." Dude, really?

    Get rid of him. Please.

    Dwayne Wade looks like a spark plug out there. He's hot right now.

    Embiid looks like he should be wearing flippers and a snorkel.

    For the love of all that's holy, stop with the three-point attempts if they're not falling. Just put points on the board.

    Simmons with the triple-double. First rookie to have one in a playoff game since Magic in 1980.

    And it's the 4th quarter, and we've run outta gas. It has been entertaining.

    That's been the story of the series, so far.
