                          They need to pay me to be an analyst. You have legit basketball players who have no concept of basketball.

                          Gordon Hayward is averaging 3 points a game and people thought the Celtics would win in the playoffs? wtf

                          Kawhi Leonard, the second coming, joins the Raptors with a strong defensive player in Green and now they have Gasol and people don't think the Raptors have the best shot at reaching the finals? These "analysts" are trash tier...

                                        Hayward needs to step tf up. He better drop at least 30 if he wants to win this game tonight. Kyrie and hayward just needs to score as many points as possible and ditch their team play for now because their team play is fucking horrendous lmao.

                                                      What a bold statement for Stephen A to make that if Milwaukee went up 3-1 they would win the series. Wow. Same guy who was picking Kyrie to play better in the series than Giannis lol. He's an arrogant fool and a terribly shortsighted analyst who doesn't like to admit when he's wrong and likes to act like he's the authority on truth.

                                                                                    While the bigger market Boston Celtics was put on a pedestal, overrated by the national media. Which has been overrated for the past few yrs. Blabbering about the CEltics being a huge threat. Nope. Not really. Same for the effin LA Lakers (who stinks for the last 6 yrs in a deep tuff Western Conference. Altho, some of these national media goofs put the Lakers as an elite team in the West, just by adding an aging Lebron (who's feasted on the weak East for yrs) . Lakers finished right where most of us figured they will, near the basement....again.
                                                                                    Seen this a mile away since the beginning of the season. Bucks, Raptors are the best Eastern Conference teams. Those 2 are the teams of the future for the East Along with the Pacers and 76ers. Possibly Nets as well.
                                                                                    Even after Game 1, I knew that Milwaukee will not panic , play to their full potential.

                                                                                    Respect to Common for realizing.
