Yeah, I would guess that it would have to be an overwhelming offer for Phil to even consider it. Drafting Porzingis is practically the only positive move that Phil has made so far.

Willy Hernangomez says Hello.

I would expect the Knicks to somehow put themselves in the mix for Olynyk. He's probably going to be this years Biyombo. Someone who had a few memorable moments in the postseason, which a team like Orlando overpaid for him, and he didnt have a memorable year this year.

Celts avoid the sweep with an amazing win. I just hope those who knocked Isaiah for "quitting" dont use that as a argument in the offseason.

I couldn't watch the game, but I was following it via ESPN's play-by-play and various Twitter feeds. The Celtics came through with a 61-42 second half. It's great to finally have a replay worth watching when I get home.

The bookies apparently think this was a one-off. The Cavs have opened as 15 point favorites for Game 4.

One of the more disappointing sweeps you'll ever see as the Warriors defeat the Spurs. Spurs never recovered from Kawhi's injuries.

And perhaps we've seen the end of Manu. Hopefully next year the Spurs can find success more with players like Jonothon Simmons and less like Lamarcus Aldridge. Who didnt rise to the task of defeating the Warriors with Kawhi down.

And I cant see Parker's replacement being Chris Paul. Murray had his moments. That's more the Spurs way than signing CP3.

It really demonstrates just how great Kawhi is now. He has gotten better every year, and I expect him to be an MVP candidate next year and for the foreseeable future, no matter what the rest of the roster looks like.

This time it was the Cavs turn for a comeback win. They overcame 4 fouls (!) by Lebron in the 1st half. Kyrie took over in the 2nd half.

The Finals are set. I said somewhere 10 months ago that the Warriors were going to win in 5, and I might regret this, but I'll still stand by that prediction. Still too dominant to make a series, a series.

And now Boston has perhaps one of the most anticipated and unpredictable offseasons ever. What to do with the top pick. Who will be coming. Who will be going. It's up to them, to either become a little more equal to the Cavs, or try for a new window and rebuild. I would choose the former.

As of now, the Dubs are favored by 7 points in Game 1. For the series, the current odds are:

Warriors -260
Cavaliers +220

Cavaliers: +180

After the Dubs went up 3-1, you could have gotten +1100 (11/1) on the Cavs winning the series.

well, at least the 1st Half was pretty good. The 2nd half though, the Warriors showed their dominance. Durant nearly had a triple double tonight. Perhaps his best game this postseason.

4 turnovers by the Dubs is one of the more insane numbers you'll ever see.
