You were saying?
Donovan is trash. Admits in the post conference he should of played Kanter more, which yeah damn right he should of, and McDermott was hot and still Donovan brought him off and should have given him far more minutes.
Then having guys on like singler and sabonis is near suicide and only done if you're giving up.
Then the 4th.. letting Westbrook and the offense going back to Hero ball is just so dumb . He's way too inconsistent and it's stupid the game rests on what 1 man can do. They have no offensive plays down the stretch at all.
Adams getting some major stick from the US media pisses me off too. They guy is just a dog to Westbrook, his entire role is to box out for Westbrook to rebound, to screen for Westbrook, be aggressive on the offensive glass, and try and alter shots in the paint. Dude would easily be a 10-15point & 10reb double double guy every game on another team that plays like a team.
I was hoping Donovan coming in we would move away from the hero ball of WB and KD under brooks, and we started the season so well playing far more team ball, but as the season went on and Westbrooke stats and achievements and hero ball took over
Ok thats my rant.
In saying that i know Houston is an awful match up for us, like GSW too. We would have gone far better against the Spurs, Jazz or Clips. I was hoping we could the the 5 seed, had it near the end with about 10 games to go but blew alot of games to sub 500 teams.

Enjoying Washington though and hope to see them go far.
Trailblazers and Celtics I think are done. Celtics again are like OKC but just have better starting pieces, never saw them getting far but thought they'd get to at least the second round though. Seems a tough matchup for them esp with Wade back and Rondo playing well.

I rate Donovan. Hero balls always been an issue in OKC... even when they had a coach of the year. I dont rate the OKC roster though. They've overacheived but I still think they wont go out without a fight.

And I really dont care what happens in the east... because we all know there's only one contender in that conference and all the rest just make up the numbers

Wizards are definite dark horses to go on a deep playoff run. Their starters are a tough match for anyone. Wall is beasting atm and Beal can turn it on late when needed. 

Celtics look like they have given up. Stevens is 2-10 in the playoffs....I kinda want them to go out in now. It will force them to hopefully use their stockpile of assets and actually give Isiah some legitimate help. They have players who would make a great supporting cast but lack a least one genuine star player.

Watched OKC Live game 3 , and thought Donovan did a faaar better job of his rotations and the combos he had on the floor. Some dumb fouls though from Oladipo on Harden at the 3, and some phantom ones from the refs didnt help. Still cant fathom how we shot the lights out and Houston had an off night and we still scraped through.

 

Havent seen Game 4 yet. But looks like the Starters did well but their Bench destroyed ours.

Reading up sounds like Roberson went 2/12 from the FT line lol and Donovan kept him out there when he was getting intentionally fouled. Ppl calling for Donovans head again lol. They certainly do need a 3 & D guy who can shoot FTs in the SF or SG position to replace Andre, he maybe a decent perimeter defender but is a liability,  cant have a guy like that shooting 2/12 for the FT line, dont think even Shaq or Dwight would have been that bad?

Might just watch the Condensed version tonight after work and kids are in bed.

Yeah I expect Boston to go for Blake and/or Melo in the off season.

Agree on Blake. Think they'll make a big run to get Hayward as well.

oh yeah, Haywood.. forgot about him, yeah with the way he's played this year and in the playoffs he'll be due a big payday with someone.

Will he take a max offer from someone like Utah, or maybe a slight cut from that to join a contender like Boston. I think the latter like most players.... except Melo that is lol
