Was last year Lebron's last ring? Thoughts?

Gobert got exposed, just play 5 small guys who can hit 3s and he can't really do anything against it on defense

Yes unless he gets really fortunate being the old guy on a stacked team. He has broken down physically 2 of the last 3 years with covid break really helping him last year. The amount of time played is catching up to him at 38-40 minutes a game since day 1, zero injuries until the last couple years and making 10 finals runs.

To put it in perspective

Lebron 17 seasons, 1,310 regular season games, 50,005 regular season minutes, 266 playoff games (most all time), 11,035 playoff minutes (most all time).

Kobe 20 seasons (tore Achilles at end of 17th), 1,346 regular season games, 48,637 regular season minutes, 220 playoff games, 8,641 playoff minutes. This is with being a shell the last 3 years which combined for 107 games and 3,247 minutes.

It seems unreasonable Lebron could be at star level for much longer but maybe he is on that Tom Brady plan. He is only about 3,000 points away from being number 1 all time in points and scored 2,800 combined the last 2 seasons despite covid messing with the games played each year, so he still has a chance at that.

LeBron had Six in his sights at the beginning of the season and will probably blame the quick turnaround for the Lakers’ problems. Plus, they can legitimately improve the team by trading Schroeder and Kuzma. Is there anyone out there that would help? Can’t say.

How long until the Donovan Mitchell trade demand?

The Bucks survive would be legendary Durant shot (apparently he wears shoes that are a size too big which probably caused his foot to be on the line)

I think all of us still have a chance to win... But I don't love Clippers odds in conference finals. Looks to me like Paul will be back but Kawhi won't. Most likely Bucks vs Suns finals.

Meanwhile Ben Simmons has to be finished in Philadelphia. There was a time when Philly could have traded him for Harden but now they may have to settle for CJ McCollum.

Playoff P! :funny: :funny:

Wild ending. Not like being down 0-2 has stopped the Clippers before.

I think if CP3 was out the whole series Clippers would have come back from 0-2 again but with him coming back in Game 3 Suns should have easy advantage. Things work out perfectly for Suns with Paul having 11 day break in the middle of the playoffs which may be the only way for him to make it to the end without getting injured

Trae Young is a bad man. Ice in his veins.

I wouldn’t be surprised if the finals are Clippers vs Bucks. You never know.

Scenarios:
Flavad-Alex tie: ATL-Phoenix finals (regardless of winner)
Alex wins: ATL beats LA Clippers for championship
Shack wins: LA Clippers wins championship (regardless of opponent)
Flavad wins: All other scenarios

Clippers just won’t die but it’s looking like this title is Milwaukee’s to lose. The Nets would have smoked them at full strength and maybe both LA teams too. Just can’t see any of the teams that are left getting by their defense.

I feel like the Clippers would have been the champion if not for Kawhi injury. Their supporting players just have that it feeling that happens during title runs sometimes.

Miami just had an improbable run last year, but if Atlanta makes it to Finals (since Giannis is injured) that would be the most surprising Finals team since 8th seeded Knicks in 1999.

And just like that the Bucks may be done. I definitely prefer the rest of Hawks team after trading queens (and that's if Young's out, which he may not be).
