      I could watch this all day. Finally a see-sawing contest.

      Kyrie is key. Land his shots, Cavs win.
      Hate to tell you but this ain't about Kyrie, this is LeBron's time. He has to be the man for them to win. Right now he's trying to let other people do it for him. He has to take charge and put this team on his back. It's what Jordan would have done.

      Bottled a 3-1 lead in the finals with Steph nowhere to be seen. Tragic.

      I know that. But Kyrie had to support with points, LBJ wasn't going to out score GSW himself. No one else was going to step up in the 4th and give him the support he needed but Kyrie.

      And he did that with a huge 3.

      Has to leave for work at 71 all with 2 minutes to go in the 3rd. Got to look at the Intenet when the Bosses left some 3 hours later and saw the Cavs had Won!!! Get the f**k in...so happy for Le Bron.

      Can't wait to get home and watch the 4th quarter on replay. Going to get really stoned for that.   :D

      Fantastic. Well done to Lebron - a well deserved title. I used to love rooting against him, but he's more than earned the respect and appreciation of every sports fan. What a player.

      Gonna be interesting to see how the shots are shared now. There's a lot of alpha dog on that team now.

      Quite amusing considering Durant's 2010 tweet that is getting a lot of RT action at the minute.

      I knew it would never ever happen, but Durant was such a perfect fit for the Utah Jazz :(

      George Hill, Gordon Hayward, Kevin Durant, Derrick Favors and Rudy Gobert, with the likes of Dante Exum, Rodney Hood and Alec Burks off the bench - that's a genuine playoff team IMO. How I wish the Jazz would make that one big signing to share responsibilities with Hayward...

      Haha :D if you mean contention for the title, then you're right, but for the playoffs... that's not really true. They nearly made it last season and I think they would have done so if only they hadn't lost Favors, Gobert and Burks for such long periods of time

      But really...what's the use of making the playoffs if you can't compete. Right now there are two teams that have a chance....Cavs and Warriors. So if you really want to compete, you have to be aiming for them, not just aiming to make the playoffs.

      The Warriors are hedging on health for their big 4 now. If anyone of them go down they are screwed because they are only going to have enough money to fill out the rest of their roster with bargain basement players. IMO, this isn't a move they should have made. But I'm glad they made it because I don't like their team (other than Steve Kerr).

      I know, but the Jazz are an extremely young team. Those guys need experience in the playoffs if they're to develop into something special. That's why I was so keen for them to make it this season but the team had quite bad luck with injuries. The Jazz have only Hayward with an "X Factor" about him, but the other players are quite good, though unspectacular. Take Rudy Gobert, for example - he's one of the best defensive players in the league. Favors is also pretty good on defense and has a high points average. Hood has improved a lot this season and Burks was doing very well until his injury (to the point Wade called him the most underrated player in the league).

      Apparently Boris Diaw has been trated to the Utah Jazz. Excellent if true - George Hill, Joe Johnson and Diaw will add much needed experience to this roster.

      Tim Duncan retires after 19 seasons. One of my favorite NBA players: modest, dedicated, true winner, hard worker. Big Fundamental was the best power forward I ever seen and one of the best player in history of the game.

      Al Horford to Celtics.

      Could be joined by Westbrook.

      Please! I like Thomas but Westbrook leading the side and taking Horford off ATL + Wade to Bulls means we're 2nd best in the East already.

      Even if it's just for a second, it's progress. We haven't been a threat for a few years now.

      Also Teague to Indiana from ATL and they have only added Howard, i think. The East is wide open for someone to try and make some noise. Looks like it's a battle between Pacers and Celtics (game on Diego :D ).

      Might have been given a tap on the shoulder. If they knew they could get Wade, i'd tell Rose to shop around too.

      Good win today. They still suck, though. Going to need Noah, Rose and Melo to fire every night to have a respectable season.

      Avery Bradley led us to a win at Charlotte today. Good stuff :)

      On paper, the Jazz have their best roster in years... all of the good players from last season are still in the team, plus Exum has come back from injury, and George Hill, Boris Diaw and Joe Johnson are now in Utah. Really liking the look of this team so far - watching a bit of Jazz @ Clippers right now. Hayward - easily the team's best player - is still injured, when he comes back he can make a huge difference as well. Such an underrated talent.

      Jazz are coming along nicely. If they were in the East they'd be a top 3 contender if not this year, next year. Really hope Exum gets plenty of game time and develops.
