I'm not certain why this new coach doesn't do something about it. I'm not certain why LeBron doesn't.

Kyrie's ball-hogedness will not be the reason the cavs lose in the finals. the cavs not being as good as the warriors is the reason they will lose.

i honestly dont see anyone on the cavs team that can really guard kt, sc or dg.

lebron really is the only one athletic enough but you cant really have him running aroudn the floor just playing d.

dova is just going to get burned, kyrie does his best impression of harden, love is just goign to sit down in the paint. jr smith has a chance but he gets reckless. shumps, if he can get his knee healthy might work but then you still need to worry about dg

No but it might be (one of) the reason(s) they don't GET to the finals... Wink
since the warriors decided to charge a 625% premium on the cost of my regular season tickets for the finals ($280/seat jumps to $1750/seat), we have decided to sell my tickets and book a vacation to Cleveland to attend games 3 & 4. a little presumptuous i know... but on the off chance the Cavs don't make it, I guess we will be driving to Toronto and will be able to have a killer offline with the local crew there! as it currently stands, I am looking forward to seeing Patespo in the 'land!

Your equivalent seats at the ACC for round 1 were $450CDN for season's ticket holders.

The $27/seat regular season nosebleeds are $380 for the finals if they get there.

But don't let that stop you! Offline!!

teams are getting crazy with the pricing. i am paying more for my playoffs tickets as i am for my entire season tickets. and they gave STH about 3 weeks notice between the time the playoff ticket pricing was released, and the payable due date. last year, finals were $850/seat... this year, more than double.
As a 33 year season ticket holder with the Lakers, My playoff ticket package has always been more expensive than the regular season package. If I were you, ignore it and go have a great time. Maybe someday I'll get to go the playoffs again. Doesn't look like anytime soon! Going to Kobe's last game tomorrow. Can't believe its been 20!

It seems like 20 weeks.

Plus, damn, 37 ain't old!

Have a great time!

I am hoping the Lakers get past all this and Russell and Randle evolve into all stars and they nail this year's draft.

Hoping it happens Paul! And I love that you said Book a vacation to Cleveland
Last game for Kobe tonight. It didn't end well but what an amazing 20 years it has been as a Laker and Kobe fan. Since Kobe came in the league in 96 the Lakers went to the finals 7 times and won 5. They only missed the playoffs 3 times including this current season. So many great memories during that stretch. It would have been interesting to see how the last 5 years would have gone if Stern didn't overstep and cancel the CP3 trade.

It's been a pretty good stretch for me as a Laker fan. Since I was born the Lakers have been to 17 NBA finals and I got to watch some of the NBA all time greats in Magic, Kareem, Shaq and Kobe. Hopefully they can get back and track and get back in the mix soon. I like some of the young guys and we have a ton of cap room. I know KD likes LA!
Good riddance to one of the biggest assholes and worst teammates the game has ever known. Now if only the front-running Phil Jackson would join him in retirement, the game would lose two of the biggest jerks of all time in one fell swoop. Kobe's retirement charade was vomit-inducing. Guy was a prick to media throughout his career, but his last go-round, he wanted to ham it up to be remembered as Mr. Nice Guy. You won't be missed.
Haha TPE. I get why non Laker fans don't like Kobe. As far as a worst teammates, I do think free agents have not wanted to play with aging Kobe for the last couple of years. That said I have not heard his former teammates not liking to play with him. There is an ex-Laker that is a member of my golf club and he said he loved playing with Kobe. Best thing he liked is how hard he pushed in practice. He did say some guys didn't like that aspect of Kobe but if you wanted to win, you loved that part of Kobe.

I loved that he came to play every single game (except for 1 strange playoff series vs the suns). As far as being an asshole, I don't disagree. I also could not care less though. I'm not his friend.
