Honestly, the 76ers would also have me as a fan (because Embiid is sick) but if Philly wins the Super Bowl, NCAA tourney, and NBA Finals, we'll never hear the end of it from those obnoxious Philly fans.
goodbye!

I would love it if Golden State blows another 3-0 lead, but it seems like the Spurs just don't have what it takes.  I fully expect the Warriors to finish off the series today.

I have to thank the Timber wolves for helping out the Hawks this season by shutting out the Nuggets, but it is looking like their season is coming to an end soon.

I'd laugh if the Pelicans win it all.  They slaughtered the Trailblazers (who I thought would make it pretty far, tbh), though.

I want the Wizards to win against the Raptors.  I'm sick of bandwagon fans.

That is my thoughts.
goodbye!

Agreed - a large swath of Eagles fans are such awful people, it makes it difficult to root for that city to win anything after their behavior this last (and previous) football seasons.

Blazers are always so soft.  I expect the Warriors to roll by 20 tonight then take care of the Pelicans in 5 or 6.  Really interested to see Houston vs Utah - I think Utah has a legit chance to win that series.

I was disappointed in how the Blazers played against the Pelicans.  They just seemed like they didn't care anymore.  They had such a strong season too, but I guess the Brow is too tough.  I think the Pelicans are an aggressive unit that could beat the Warriors, but again, I think the Warriors are destined to be at the Finals for years.  Utah and Houston would be a sick series.  Can't believe I'm liking a Utah sports org. 

I do think the Cavs are losing their edge, even with their tied series. The Pacers have a real shot at winning.

I'd be pretty shocked if the Pelicans beat the Warriors.  I do think either the Rockets or even this Utah team could give them fits.  I agree Cavs are losing their edge.  I don't know if the Pacers have enough juice to close the deal.  But I think the 76ers will beat them if the Cavs manage to get past the Raptors (who I have no real faith in).

Yeah, can't believe it.  I'm rooting for a Utah team.

Mitt Romney taunting Westbrook was hilarious.

I think Philly and Golden State wrap up their series' tonight.  Bucks/Celtics is the interesting one.  I still don't see how Boston can continue to win games with that make-shift lineup.

Yep - Sixers were an easy call.  Expect the Warriors to curb-stomp the Spurs tonight as well.

The coaching difference between those two teams is depressingly large. Cs just run such a better offense, even though they really have far less talent given all their injuries.

Stevens is the best coach in the league imo.  Danny Ainge made off like a bandit swapping Rivers for Stevens (big upgrade) AND getting all those draft picks.

Closer than I thought. Spurs put up a good fight.

Not sure I can put him above Pop, but Stevens is certainly an incredible coach and will be in the league for decades due to his youth. Also helps that Ainge is probably the best GM in the league.

I mean, Pop won with Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, etc.  Brad Stevens managed to get the #1 seed last year with Isaiah Thomas as their top player, and is winning a series with his 2 best players done for the year.  And I really, really dislike Pop - he's such a complete douche all the time for no reason other than to just be a douche.

Pop's just so great at getting the best out of his players (not that Stevens isn't though). The Spurs in the 2014 finals remain the most impressed I've ever been with a team, in terms of getting the absolute max out of everyone. That team absolutely rolled Bron's Heat and played the most beautiful basketball. I have to agree about disliking Pop though, he's an asshole for no reason all the time. Still though, I can't deny how incredible a coach he is.
