Excellent us of the meme -- obviously when they refer to "my franchise" they're speaking in the voice of a Rockets fan...

@MavsNetwork:

Food $200
Data $150
Rent $800
Chris Paul in 2021 $44,211,146
Utility $150

someone who is good at the salary cap please help me budget this. my franchise is dying

Interesting to see more than a few sports journalists question the Harden/Paul fit now -- especially after citing them for the past several years as "proof" that having two ball-dominant guards on the same team can work for a team with championship aspirations.

I wonder if the Kemba-to-Dallas offseason fantasies start to cool off as a result?

That's an excellent point. Two type A guards that need in the ball in their hands is always going to be a tricky issue to work around. Poor DSJ had the Luka title wave knock him out. And and I don't think any other player is going to stop that wave because of Luka's popularity.

And if the Kemba signing fails, then you're stuck with a giant max contract...although I think Kemba would be far more moveable because of his age than old man Paul.

Yeah, Kemba's talent alone makes his contract movable, even if the fit doesn't work -- which may be reason enough to pursue him when better options dry up.

But it is amusing to see the poster boys for the "two ball-dominant guards" movement go up in flames so quickly... Especially since it's the guy who sold us on the idea (Morey) who seems to be the first to admit that the experiment failed.

Getting Gasol was huge for Toronto.
20 points, 7 reb, 2 steals, 1 block and a boat load of screens.

With no KD, I think Warriors lose. Raptors match-up well, but will need Lowry and Siakam to continue to step up. Gasol is a match-up issue for the Warriors and I'm not sure Cousins is up for the task just yet coming off of the injury.

Everything can change once they hit Oracle though...

Siakam is an absolute beast. Dude was unguardable last night and he's supposed to be a defense-first guy.

Rockets are my favorite storyline right now

Rockets break off talks about Mike, Dan, and Tony’s extension. They’re blowing it up

Too bad Chris Paul has negative value, specially after (again) clashing with teammates. And Capelas value took a solid hit in these playoffs too

I never realized how much Curry flops. Dude falls down after every jump shot that is slightly contested. He’s perfected Harden’s, “jump forward 3 ft on a jump shot to create contact” move

Always seems like the playoffs start off well and then turn out the same way every year. Beating the Warriors without Klay and Durant means diddly doo.

Nets dumping Crabbe and have two max slots and there are plenty of Irving rumours. Damn it would be so damn epic if the Knicks end up with overpaying Cousins etc

Trade deets:
The Nets are sending Crabbe, the No. 17 pick in the 2019 NBA draft and a 2020 lottery protected first-round pick to the Hawks for forward Taurean Prince and a 2021 second-round pick, league sources said. The deal canít be finalized until July 6

Signing Irving is only go to stunt Deangeloís development. Their better off looking elsewhere imo.

@BillSimmons:

1. Toronto won 13 of the 16 quarters this series. None of this is a fluke. They’ve been better the whole time save for Game 2 third quarter.

2. Kawhi is 31-10-4 for the Finals and 31-9-4 / 50-38-89% for the whole playoffs. Also - he doesn’t exactly suck on D. What a run.

Where is Kawhi in the current landscape of the NBA?

Depending on opinion, it's gotta be a mix of LeBron, Kawhi, KD, Curry, Giannis, Harden, AD, Luka.

Kawhi and Durant in tier 1. Giannis and LeBron and Curry in tier 2. Harden, AD soon to be joined by Luka and maybe Jokic and healthy PG in the next tier. Embid, Towns, Butler, Dame, Blake, Dray, Klay, Kristaps, Westbrook, Kyrieís ego in the flawed but nonetheless great in some way category. Gobert, Lowry,, Jrue, Kemba, Conley, Dipo, Beal and McCollum etc.

DeAron Fox may ascend next season. As may Siakam. Ben Simmons has no fire or jump shot. CP3 = washed

AD trade news:

Griffin is pursuing a combination of assets that include an All-Star player, a young player with All-Star potential and two first-round picks, league sources said. Those wants are on a sliding scale. For example, the better the player, the softer the asks on the draft picks — and vice versa. – via ESPN

AD narrows his list to the Knicks or Lakers. Obviously NOLA can send him anywhere, but can’t imagine another team offering much with out a guarantee he stays.

Fans cheering that injury has just made me lose all interest in the Raptors winning. Stay classy.

Sure looks like a possibility from the way he was grabbing it. If that's the case, I wouldn't want to be the Dr. if he was told that there wasn't risk of serious injury playing. :-O

Zoomed in video of the KD injury. Def an Achilles tear. Hate to see that.
