    At one point the Warriors had four offspring NBA players - Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Glenn Robinson III, and Andrew Wiggins, but of course non-played with their parents. There was also the Barry's with Rick, Drew, Brent and Scooter all playing in the NBA and three of them with the Warriors - It's a family affair!

    Still can't really see Philly or Atlanta seriously challenge either of those teams.

    But a Brooklyn (Jeff Green)/Philly (Danny Green) Eastern Conference Final would keep the "Six Degrees of Shaquille O'Neal" streak alive and guarantee that for the 38th (!) consecutive year at least one future or former Shaq teammate competes in the NBA Finals.

    It was kind of a joke when Shaq ended up in the Suns' lineup, at the end of his career. At the time, then head coach Mike D'Antoni had a "run and gun" style of play. Shaq's style of play was to stand under the basket and wait for someone to feed him the ball. The easiest way to defend against Shaq was to foul him and force him to the free throw line. He couldn't shoot free throws to save his life.

    The Nets dominated for about a minute. Series is tied. Bucks kicked their asses. GO BUCKS.

    There was a period in the 2nd quarter where the Bucks put on a 3 minutes clinic.

    Bucks are still alive. But I'm sure the big media outlets want a Clippers/Nets Finals. That whole LA/NY thing......

    ^^ Meanwhile, the Suns are hoping for a 7 game Jazz/Clippers series. Chris Paul was hit with Covid protocols while Lebron wasn't. Go figure.

    LeBron never tested positive for COVID. His "protocol violation" consisted of attending an outdoor public event where attendees were required to provide proof of vaccination.

    It's official: the Nets won't be winning the championship. But good on our former franchise player, Steve Nash for leading them as far as they went. Considering he's been a head coach for about a minute.

    Congrats Bucks. The injuries did the Nets in. Let's be honest. But I'm happy for the Bucks.

    I'm rooting for this Trey Young kid. No offense Scott... I think the Sixers will take it.

    And so much for that. I think Rajon Rondo with the Clippers is the only player left who could keep that streak alive now.

    Nets fan here but I think the play calling did the Nets in. Reminded me of when Durant and Harding played for OKC. End of game is all one on one. Caught a break when when the one at the end of the 4th went in. But to have 10 seconds in OT and have to shoot a contested 3 again, be betting against that every time. Good Luck to the Bucks!

    This year's finals will boil down to which team has the fewest injuries.

    I think (hope) Ben Simmons played his last game in a Sixers uniform. What a pathetic performance.
