Undisputed should be fun to watch tomorrow. I want to hear how Skip Bayless is going to downplay Kawhi's play THIS time.

On a side note, as a Wrestling fan, I cringed when Marv Albert mispronounced Chris Jericho's name during that promotion for AEW.

Honestly, Skip is a clown.  Along with most of these "Analysts"



At least with the others, it’s strictly business.

Skip takes it personally with Kawhi. Not very professional as journalist when it comes to him.

A disappointing end for the Bucks. They're a team with a lot of promise and potential, but I think this series showed a slowness and inability to effectively adapt that speaks to inexperience in certain key players, not least of all being Giannis.

There will be a bunch of GIANNIS EXPOOOOOSED, BUCKS EXPOOOOOSED, LOLOLOLOL!!1!1 posts and vids because that's the insufferable, toxic, pitiable internet culture we live in but I - a rational human being - will be watching the Bucks intently next season. There's a lot of potential, the team and especially Giannis have made major strides in a very short window. And Giannis in particular has shown a willingness to apply himself to improve.

But that's all in the future. Rught now, the Raptors head to the finals. Unfortunately, best day vs best day, the Raptors have less of a chance than the Bucks against the Warriors. And while the Raptors have shown themselves to be far better at adapting to adversity, they won't have their best day 6 or 7 times in a row, which is what they will need. Add to that they are coming out of a 6 game vs the Warriors coming out of a sweep, this is going to be uggly. The Warriors very likely have one of their typical "woops, forgot how to tie our shoelaces" games and the Raptors might grab one, but I don't anticipate much more than that.

How it comes that Rap have less of a chance than the Bucks against the Warriors? they all have home court advantage against warriors, and both team are in their first time in Final in last few decades, why r u so sure Bucks would be better? Just your personal preference?

They do have a lot of potential, and Giannis will get a lot better, but as of right now he absolutely was exposed. Not so much for people who actually watched his game, and judged it appropriately, but all the many pundits out there who were willing to jump to "he's the best player in the world," "he's the new Shaq," etc. All he's really good at right now is barreling into the lane with reckless abandon, and when you wall him off, or foul him, he's got pretty much nothing he can go to in order to get himself a bucket. He doesn't just need the jump shot everyone is always saying will make him unguardable...he also needs some actual post moves. The Bucks had absolutely zero go to plays in situations where they desperately needed them, and that's in large part because Giannis doesn't have any go to moves himself.



A star player hears the hype and reads all the news. Is he the next Jordan or Lebron or Kobe or the G.O.A.T? Then he plays a bad series and flops and is labelled a choker. Is the player clutch under the pressure or does he choke like James Harden or Russell Westbrook?

I said best day vs best day.  That is, the Bucks when they hit all the right beats and such are more dangerous than the Raptors doing the same.  The Raptors are however a more adaptable team, they don't crack under pressure.  So it's a wash in regards to who is better in a series.  Bucks can do more damage on a good night but can crack due to pressure,  Raptores adapt better game to game but just aren't quite as dangerous on their best day.  Both wouldn't be favored in the finals.  



I wasn't watching the game today, my attention was turned to AEW: Double or Nothing. (Fingers crossed that AEW finds great success, God knows the wrestling industry needs it.)

But I was keeping tabs on the Game. Even when I saw the Bucks leading by 13 after the 1st quarter, I figured that the Raptors would eventually come back, and sure enough.

The great news for the Toronto Raptors, they're heading to their first NBA Finals in franchise history!
The bad news... they get the Golden State Warriors.
