    To be fair the Golden State defenders were consistently landing under his feet. That is a foul all game long.

    If anybody had balls on the Rockets team they'd beat the shit out of KD or Steph the next time they do it. Take em out the series, gotta take care of Harden

    Problem is guys like Harden and CP3 flail their legs after the shot trying to draw calls, so it's impossible to officiate because it's so hard to tell if the defender got in the shooters space, or the shooter got in the defenders space.

    The league needs to aggressively call offensive fouls on that shit to get players to stop the flailing/flopping, then they can protect the shooters when players do land under them.

    Dorsey left KC with a bunch of problem children and now he's at it in Cleveland. Greedy Williams is an idiot, says Browns are now going to the Super Bowl Lol

    Carolina hoping Grier can replace clown Newton in Carolina. The shoulder injury for Newton is as good an excuse as they'll get

    I don't know how Harmon fell all the way like he did, but the Skins got a good one, McLaurin is good too. Haskins has a couple

    EVERY league wants offense let alone the NBA which calls travelling about once a game if that so to expect the refs to start calling more offensive fouls is WISHFUL thinking. NOT watching the games so I can't say one way or the other but a couple of articles are suggesting the dubs are getting a majority of the calls.

    Every league does want more offense, but that's generally the goal in the regular season. Broad scope, the theory is of course, " more offense = more viewership "..but viewership isn't a problem in the playoffs. In the playoffs, leagues want to tighten up and get the calls right because whole seasons are on the line and leagues need transparency or they're no better than pro wrestling.

    All of these leagues are about to hop in bed with Vegas and so when the playoffs roll around and championships are on the line, they don't give a damn if the games are low scoring. They just want the right team advancing. Which is why we're now about to enter a era in the NFL where pass interference is challengeable thanks to the crew that just blew the Saints/Rams NFC title game. The ending of that game was unacceptable, especially for a league that has hopped into bed with Vegas. A lot of people lost money on the most blatant missed called in 15+ years.

    Harden was also pretty weak against the Jazz last series, so this was coming. He shot 37% from the field. Harden is the old guy at the YMCA that can't really hang athletically, and is always calling fouls and trying little tricky shit that'll get him over. Every postseason, at one point or another, he fails to get over the athletic bar.

    But not only did Harden not shoot well against the Jazz..he pretty much had the worst flop I've ever seen on the NBA level, so his complaining should fall on deaf ears. He faked like Ingles hit him in the throat and then just missed an entire possession while in the backcourt grabbing at his throat..as if we wouldn't see the replay and see zero contact. Fuck Harden. Dude represents too much negativity as far as the game goes. The incessant dribbling and flopping. Fuck that guy.

    If CP3 and Harden could just focus on trying to make shots instead of trying to draw fouls they'd have a great shot at winning this series.

    The Warriors have looked off for awhile and though their ceiling is still by far the highest in the NBA, they've rarely played their best all season. But the Rockets are going to keep whining, Harden is going to keep underperforming in the playoffs, and they'll keep blaming the refs.

    I saw many plays where Rockets players did the same shit on defense that has them so upset and nothing was called. In fact, Twitter made sure to show the receipts lol

    Mel Kiper thinks this draft haul will propel the team, predicting the RAIDERS win the division @ 10-6..wish I could agree. There's great playoff turnover year to year, but their schedule is murderous, 7 weeks between home games and the toughest divisions in the conference. 8 or 9 wins at most, before injuries and all that other shit starts in. Good draft though, B+ draft and B+ free agency. On schedule to be a real playoff contender by Vegas if Carr doesn't shit the bed.

    A lot of Cowboy fans mad that Mayock took Abram with the pick that they traded for Cooper. Dallas is thirsty for safety play and Abram is it, fast and physical. But now Karl Joseph trade rumors are floating around, that he may be headed to Dallas because Lamarcus Joyner's at the other safety spot. Would've been nice to have gotten the trade done during the draft. Ultimately, Josh Jacobs was a Top 10 talent in this draft and they got him at 24, so it worked out for them in a flip flop sort of way. Mayock correctly predicted that Jacob's position of RB and lack of freaky speed would make him available at 24. Good shit overall.

    A couple of #2 guys. And we know what Antoni represents in terms of never having what it takes to get over the bar.

    Wow...Houston yacking up a game at home playing against 3-4 bench players making them look silly.

    If Houston loses tonight, I really want that team to implode.

    As much as I dislike GS, I’m glad that Houston and their all team most disliked players in CP3 and Harden will go off, tails tucked between their legs with absolutely no more excuses about what choke artist they are.

    Please disappear, and cut that nasty ass beard Harden.

    BSPN has RAIDERS as the most improved team in the league. SI/Peter King says they've gone from about the 30th best team to 19th, is picking them to go 8-8, which sounds about right given that they have the toughest schedule the NFL has seen in years. I'll say 8-8 at best..before inevitable injuries hit in camp/preseason.

    Ultimately, Carr is probably going to be the biggest factor in them being anywhere from 6-10 and 9-7..outside of Tyreek Hill's likely suspension and HBO Hard Knocks banging the table for the RAIDERS to be this year's sacrifice. Have no idea why HBO wouldn't want to just cover the 1st offseason heading into Vegas. Even the draft is in Vegas next year. Last season in Oakland or 1st season in Vegas? Easy choice, IMO. Fuck Oakland.

    Apparently Gase was upset they signed Bell.

    Lol....bad two days for NY sports. The guy that just made every big decision for you that'll determine the future of the franchise gets axed and the unproven, psychotic coach has made it known he's not a fan of your prized signing.

    Gase liked the player, didn't like the money he was given. Had the same feelings on CJ Mosley. Spending big money on RB and MLB can be sketchy. There are some circumstances in which it makes sense..like with the Rams in a NFC West division that was wide open and a young QB on a rookie contract that needs a dominant force at RB behind him. Jets really aren't close enough to the Pats to be doling out that type of money on those positions. They just spent money to spend money..Redskins- AFC. Damn shame, really. Only hope @ stopping the Pats in that division = Quinnen Williams who's barely 21
