That 7 foot 7 guy from UCF (I think?) looked great the past two days in workouts.

He reminds me of Mtumbo. And that was an impact player, although a specialist.

I bet people would come just to watch him block shots.

Tacko Fall.

Thanks. I forget the name because it reminds me of flopping.

OK, so can we have a Tacko talking point?

He's about 20 years late. Big, blocking big men are becoming extinct in this 3 point league the NBA has become.

Tacko Fall and Bol Bol have great upside. All they have to do is learn the Ben Wallace way of lockdown defense. They could shut down the entire front court if they can properly cover the stacked PF position. They have to do more than block they need to lockdown everyone.

The Raptors look like children out there so far.

As expected. They're the gatekeepers of the East the same way the Clippers under CP3 used to be.

He had that promising first year, mind -- and then Sacramento syndrome kicked in.

I fell asleep before halftime last night. I clearly didn't miss much. Looks like we're headed for Golden State-Milwaukee.

It took 2 overtimes, but game 3 is done. No sweep for Milwaukee.

I wonder how many other teams in NBA history played a home playoff elimination game where they led at some point by as much as 17, a player that normally plays bench instead starts and goes on to have a double-double including a career-high 30 points, yet LOSE.

There's a reason I lost interest. This is the most interested in the NBA Playoffs I've been in a long time. And even so I've only watched maybe 30 minutes of it combined. The NBA is incredibly boring as it currently exists.

Listen even I don't want someone to surpass Bill Russell, but I will hop on for anyone not named Kobe (just him atm) to kick MJ in the nuts and win 7 rings. Which is why blowing the 3-1 lead was the most infuriating thing ever because you knew Michael was gloating hard the entire time.

What's the punishment for blowing a double digit lead in 3 games? A big ass contract extension.
