    A lot of the time a trade at the deadline is how you get the big players though. If you're knocking at the door of a finals appearance, you don't stock up with young unproven talent, you go for it.
    i guess the question is...

    are you actually knocking at the door? or do you have a bucket of fools gold.

    i can pretty much guarantee through ainge/ownership comments.. they know it's fools gold.

    The last (and only imo) deadline deal that put a team over the top was rasheed. and i'm not even sure that was the year they won.

    It was

    I remember because that was the 61 win Pacer team that looked like it would break through but got undercut by a hot Pistons team and squabbles over who was selling the most sneakers, if you believe Reggie Miller. We so would have beat the Lakers in Detroit's stead.

    Are they going to continue the series or just let LeBron rest?
    Lance is finally home. Whether he becomes our starting PG or he's 6th man, he's getting big minutes and he's here to stay. #llortontnia

    Has there ever been two Finals teams that swept their way through both sides of the bracket? I think they discussed it last night but I was busy and didn't ever rewind the DVR to hear exactly.
    Nope only the 2001 Lakers swept their way through the Western Conference. I remember how many people complained about that.

    Little did they know 16 years later.

    Got immediate flashbacks to Rip Hamilton blocking Reggie Miller's layup, and right on cue, Reggie acknowledged it on the broadcast

    Another *** whupping coming....


    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?

    LeBron is just playing a different game. He can do anything he wants out there, and he knows it.

    The best example I can think of is the 1989 playoffs. The Lakers swept their way through the Western Conference, while the Pistons lost 2 on their way to winning the East.

    Cleveland and Golden State look like Team USA compared to everyone else.

    It's crazy that Lebron is better than ever. I don't even know if Cavs defense is better than reg season because their offense is so lightsout right now.

    If the Cavs beat the Warriors there should be no complaints about the playoffs, Lebron is just unreal.

    Based on what exactly?

    Sure the conclusion may be obvious(I think the Cavs will repeat)

    But I don't get how you think there should be no complaints about the playoffs? The playoffs are supposed to be about drama (well at least manufactured drama as the NBA isn't known for parity) and they aren't even providing that.

    Guys are going to have to start dunking the ball instead of putting up soft layups.

    Boston should be embarrassed by this. I get that it's not their year and everyone expected Cleveland to roll, but this is pathetic.

    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???

    Boston has no clue what to do. They've given up on trying to run Cleveland off the three-point line, but they're not putting any pressure on LeBron, either.

    After this performance by the Celtics, all should agree to just let the Pacers get another crack at it.

    Wow. It would be sad to see no more Lebron vs PG. About the only real threat to Lebron in the east.
    Only way to get better is to play the best.

    If both teams sweep, there will be NINE days between the end of the conference finals and the beginning of the NBA finals. NINE.

    Cleveland could probably rest their starters the entire second half and still win by double-digits.
