    I'm not watching, because I truly don't care about any of these remaining games.

    But, seriously?

    Holy ****.

    There's no way that Paul George is watching this game and not thinking to himself "They need me.".
    He could be watching and thinking, "Damn, we were a lot closer to Cleveland than this. Maybe we aren't so far away."

    Name one person in america who picked anybody but the Cavs to win the East? Name someone who said Boston was a contender?

    CLE swept Indy
    CLE swept Tor
    CLE sweeps Boston

    In order to be a "pretender" you have to be a "contender"
    Stop.

    Yes, people picked the Cavs out of the East. NO ONE predicted they were going to embarrass the Celtics.


    Remember when we could have gotten 1-2 solid players and a possible Top 3 draft pick in the 2017 NBA Draft by trading away Paul George?

    If the Cavs win, that means that a team with 2 MVPs and one of the greatest squads of all time can't stop Lebron, so how can you get 4 competitive teams together in East against a force like that???
    Probably because LeBron can get away with anything on the court also helps too not denying his amazing talent but both are at play here.

    Good thing they are in position to draft Markelle Fultz then
    Don't know if Fultz will be that guy and even if he is he doesn't seem Lebron like; it's probably going to take 3-5 years and Thomas will be past his prime by then.
    "It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    Yep. LeBron is amazing, but he also gets away with murder.

    After watching them vs the Wizards, I thought they could at least make it a game. This is pretty sad

    This would be my thought.

    The Pacers were very inconsistent until Lance's return. But the Pacers's ceiling may have been higher than anyone else's in the East save Cleveland.

    If you really think they care about Thomas being past his prime after this I don't know what to tell you.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Starting to believe Cavs will almost sweep the Warriors. They look unstoppable. Warriors didn't look great when Kawhi played. Just imagine how they handle LeBron.

    There's no way to stop Cleveland, but GS has the offense to keep up. That's how the Pacers stayed close, they just failed to execute in crunch time.

    Defense no longer wins championships.

    Don't have to imagine; they've met him the past two years in the Finals. Won the first time, barely lost the second. This time, they have this Durant fella.

    Also, Golden State has been every bit as dominant in the postseason as Cleveland.

    The same Durant that's been owned by LeBron his entire career?

    And Mike Brown will probably be coaching and yes I think Tyronne Lue can outsmart him.

    These playoffs are a stain on the history of the league. I can't believe I was stupid enough to pick the Cavs in 5 instead of a sweep.

    After they sweep this wretched series, the Cavs will be 36-4 in the East playoffs since Lebron returned lol.

    You sure the grass is greener Paul?
    "We've got to be very clear about this. We don't want our players hanging around with murderers," said Larry Bird, Pacers president.

    Well the Pacers still have been the 7 seed two consecutive years, which is rather ghastly when considering the historically putrid state of the Conference.

    Ok so it looks like Boston is all in on Hayward, so going after Hayward means they are in winning now mode, I guess that shows they are open to trading the pick

    Nah they don't care, but then they'll need another superstar next to Fultz maybe more than 1 in today's NBA. They're really far away from contention still...even more-so than the Pacers imo. Outside of Isaiah, Teague and Myles can be considered just as good as anyone Boston has. They have a great team if they had a Paul George or someone better but it's good pieces without a king to guide them.
