The Wizards are better than they get credit for. The collapse of the Pacers in the late part of the season and the battle against the Hawks upset me. I really wanted them to knock the Heat down. Obviously it can still happen but not if the Heat get a long rest after each series while the Pacers fight for every goal.
I'm so punk, I don't even take my leather jacket off when it catches fire. Which it does frequently, because of how fucking punk I am.

Brooklyn could push Miami to 7 games. They beat em during the regular season, but I know playoff games are different.

Wow. I thought OKC was going to lose. But that call against the Clippers was bad. Looked like it should've been their ball.

Should have been a foul anyway. Great comeback and how good was Westbrook's 3 free throws under huge pressure!!!

I read this morning that the NBA rule is if the defensive player hits an offensive player forcing the ball out of bounds the offensive (team) keeps possession,
which is why the official pointed to OKC. So the refs probably did the right thing by not reversing the call on the court.

Robbery. I haven't watched basketball in 10 years and this is what I return to? That was my last game ever.

Lebron opts out of his contract with the Heat. It's possible that the Lebron-Wade-Bosh era will have not 8, not 6, not 4 but 2 championships.

Although I'm not a fan of the new Sports Illustrated makeover, the new web design does make for some interesting unintentional headline editing:

Cleveland fans are an insufferable lot. They don't deserve him.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.
