    How much can I bet the other side? He’s like Hyman Roth — he’s been retiring for the past 20 years.

    It wouldn't surprise me if he doesn't have a regular gig in the future. But he's still going to be a frequent figure, popping up on things like the Manning Cast or the Stanley Cup finals or the Final Four, whenever a network wants a juicy 5 minutes.

    I heard Barkley tell Isola the day the news broke last month that he had told TNT he was retiring next year anyway.

    When you need buckets once your team is up 20, Tatum is at the ready.

    The broadcast may very well speak his preordained MVP into existence, but Jaylen Brown has played his ass off.

    He just put up 31/8/11 in a championship clincher. It’s not his fault most of the game was played outside a 20-point margin.

    I take that back. That was his fault to a large degree.

    The Celtics are a very well constructed team, and it isn’t their fault who they play, but that was a comically easy run to a ring.

    Even though the Pacers series was a sweep, it had far more entertaining games than the Final provided, which were none. Hell, Miami minus Jimmy Butler put up more of a fight than the Mavericks. Of course you are right that that wasn't the Celtics' fault in any way, but unless you're a Celtics fan, this was a season that ended with a complete anticlimax. Hell, when the Moses Malone Sixers swept the Showtime Lakers in '83, at least the games were close ones.

    I would’ve liked to see the Knicks play the Celtics with a healthy Anunoby.

    Does Billy King get a ring?

    This was easily the worst NBA playoffs I can ever remember watching. Tons of blowout games - the variance due to 3 point shooting is immense; injured stars; Fat Luka whining every single game, and Kyrie giving zero fucks about throwing up slop; Doris Burke and JJ with zero chemistry; SAS shown walking into MSG like he was a player; The champs a team with zero personality or charisma, unless you like buzzcut white boys tossing up 3s, or a star player who still texts a dead Kobe; The Finals with zero flow because of the off days.

    Good riddance to this crap.

    A bad omen indeed. Two long months later and the playoffs grind to a halt.
    Worst playoffs in modern sports history.
    And as a Dubs fan, I’m not looking forward to the start of training camp in what will seem like three weeks from now.
