    Finish them tonight.

    Come back, Regular Brian.

    My agenda is truth.

    Houston beating GS with Chris Paul pulling a hammy in the very last minute is interesting indeed.

    So no Celtics on any of the All-NBA teams? Really? They’re perched on the doorstep of the finals, but have none of the league’s best players?

    The fucking Wolves have two players on the third team, but no Kyrie? No Horford?

    I get no Kyrie because he missed so many games. It is hard to spot someone to take off for Horford. Maybe Paul George or Jimmy Butler? I initially thought Aldridge, but then I looked at Aldridge’s numbers. Jesus that guy is an offensive monster.

    Horford is bizarro Draymond Green. Very similar players but for affect. Draymond didn’t make it, so I get Horford not making it, I guess.

    No coach of the year votes. Who will get GM of the year instead of Ainge? It’ll be hilarious.

    I get no Horford. I just thought Kyrie to third team, despite the missed games. He had that much of an impact, IMO (although maybe the team’s postseason success is working against him).

    Butler played 59 regular season games. Kyrie played 60.

    I was very surprised that Cousy called Horford “soft”.     Otherwise he appears at 89 years old to still have all his marbles.

    Thought so as well but he’s getting closer to beating that $22 mil or so option my guess is they don’t want that

    ESPN has decided the cure to what ails them is MORE Keith Olberman.   Longer contract, more screen time, back to SportsCenter.

    It’s like they’ve had no business training at all.

    I think they list Butler as forward. It’s 2 guards and three forwards or centers.

    His nightly “worst person in the world” can either be whatever colleague took his dick out in a meeting that week, or a random choice of one of the 10,000 people that cut the cord since the previous day’s broadcast

    I’m visiting Pearl Harbor today. If I get the chance, I’ll dramatically remove my sunglasses before reading an inscription at the Arizona memorial. Also, if Yamamoto’s “awakened a sleeping giant” comments come up, I’ll work in Joe Gill’s “I’ve fallen and I can get up” credo.

    Speaking of, it’s apparently a weekly feature

    Over a year, started last fall or maybe late summer and didn’t get anything done in winter because of the snow :blink:
    Also way to proofread the captions.

    There’s one from today that I haven’t found a tweet for yet too.

    Anyone explain to me why the broadcasters think there should be a foul on the play where love and tatum crashed heads? I mean…it’s sort of a contact sport, no?

    On the BSJ counter, has it ever declined? I’d guess it only counts new subscriptions and doesn’t reflect current his active users.

    I thought it did once but when I was rechecking to make the graph the numbers didn’t match. Today’s zero may just be because I checked late yesterday and then set the auto update at 9.

    do you suppose if a cav player actually ripped off a celtic player’s shorts and anally raped him at midcourt they might call a foul on cleveland ?

    The media hated him. KKKallhan should be able to explain without getting suspended.

    Offensively Horford seems like he’s playing in cement shoes.  Odd and unfortunately sad

    Breen sounded like someone shot his dog at the end of the first quarter,  ow it’s all coming up roses.  Meanwhile Van Gundy wants to go back and call a few more Celtic fouls on Lebron.  And how can any announcing crew possibly still fall of the oooh Lebron’s hurt act?  Banana in the tailpipe jpg

    Between the announcers and the refs, they make this thoroughly unenjoyable to watch. Even when the Celtics win during this series, the feeling is much more “Suck it, Breen!” than just enjoying a damn win. They completely sap the fun out of watching the game.

    I don’t know dick about basketball, but I don’t understand why these announcers think two guys colliding while looking away should be a foul. Especially when Lebron looks to lower his shoulder and still gets the worst of it.

    The fix is in. The refs are going to make sure Lebron gets to the finals.

    You know the refs are going to call fouls so the Cs should pound the shit out of anyone going to the basket.

    I can tell you why… they’re fucking nobs who should spend more time servicing The King orally than doing so verbally.
