Topics I've Started

Durant to GS

OKC, we feel you pain. The Warriors just one upped the Cavs- now have the Big 4. Vegas has already handed them the 2017 Title.


Mozgov to the Lakers

We wish you well Timofey. You weren't going to beat out TT for the starting center job, and Los Angeles had a ton of money to throw your way. You got your ring, and $64 million- not bad. As the Lakers site said, he's going to be 30, and was slowed this year by knee troubles. Hardly played in the Finals either.

 

Way more important to keep JR in the fold. Soon TBD if he values another shot at a Championship, or the $$. The Cavs won't be in the position to offer him a pile of loot to keep him around.


Independence Day - Resurgence

Yup, your resident SiFy geek had to see it.

I'll keep it short, as it's almost 2AM. I'll maybe add a little more later.  If you enjoyed the original, you're probably going to like the sequel.

 

It's 20 years down the road, and the Earthlings have managed to decipher enough of the alien technology to have come a long way. Of course when the aliens show up- they've advanced a bunch too.

 

Almost all the usual suspects return to reprise their roles- except for Will Smith, seems he got killed trying out one of the snazzy new anti-alien fighters.

 

It's a mix of dizzying special effects- with some parts of the movie that sort of dragged. Solid B movie IMHO.


Anyone watch ESPN "OJ Made in America"?

Historical? Yes. Biased as hell? Ditto.


The Finals

31 May 2016 - 12:42 PM

Thought I'd start a new Finals specific thread. So post away here.

 

My early thoughts. After the Warriors beat OKC I'm not terribly optimistic. For the Cavs to win, they have to be firing on all cylinders. Thompson and Curry have regained their shooting touch.

 

That means- NO off games from Irving and Love. Kyrie can't be missing layups on drives to the basket like Westbrook did in game #7, and Love can't be clanking his three point shots. It would help immensely if JR and Frye can stay hot- it will open up drives to the hoop for LBJ. Also, I haven't seen the Cavs play the level of defense the Thunder demonstrated against GS- all year. They'll have to step that up big time.
