As an Orlando fan I'm a little shocked, it's not over yet, but damn!!!!! If they drop the series to the Celtics then all the reloading in anticipation of playing the Magic is all for not (Shaq, Jamison) and possibly losing James to FA. I thought it was pretty clear last year in the ECF that the Cavs needed 3 more pieces, a center, PF, and PG. Williams is not the answer and he has faded in the playoffs now two years in a row. They addressed the C and PF slots, but the PG is the QB of the offense and the Cavs have no direction.

Some of it has to do with the Celtics hot shooting. I think they are close to 55% for the whole series. But what it comes down to is the cavs are getting outplayed and outcoached. I cant see them winning this series unless they come up with a scheme to stop rondo from owning them off the dribble and Ray Allens screen and shoot game.

Rajon Rondo is a beast!!!! But seriously, I am a Celtics fan, I think the Celts will beat the Cavs but they will have a tough time with Orlando. I think Boston is better than the Magic but the Magic just seem to have their number (aka the Magic get all the calls )

Talk about throwing in the towel. First field gaol in the 3rd quarter?!?!?!?!? Come on Lebron, you are better than that.....well, maybe not. I think back to how he lost to the Magic last year and acted like a baby. He is a great player, but man he has a lot to learn.

GO LAKERS!!!!

I'm a huge Cavs fan, live in Cleveland, and it's pretty obvious the Celtics are the better team, with a MUCH better head coach. There's a few reasons this shouldn't be so surprising.

1.) Z, Shaq, and Jamison had not been on the roster together until the playoffs began.
2.) Shaq just came back at the start of the playoffs after missing 2 months.
3.) Under Mike Brown, the offensive system has been absolutely terrible and has not improved, they're lost on offense
4.) Boston is the better team. Take the top four players from each team, the Cavs have LeBron, Jamison, Shaq, and Mo Williams. The Celtics have Rondo, Pierce, KG, and Ray Allen. Take away the best player from each team (for the sake of arguement, we'll say it's Rondo). That leaves the Cavs with a 38 year old Shaq, Jamison, and Mo. The Celtics still have 3 future HOFers...even if you take away one of the Big 3 you still have 2 HOFers and an emerging superstar PG in Rondo...

True. The Cavs are getting horribly outcoched and the celtics have been excuting their gameplans to perfection, especially in game 5. Shaq has taken minutes away from players like Hixon, who was a great x-factor for them in the regular season. But then again, shaq had 20 pts in the last game... Sammie Parker and Mo Williams have to play better for the Cavs to have a chance.

Don't even get me started on Mo Williams...that guy just disappears in the playoffs. Yeah, Hickson needs to see the floor A LOT more, and so does Moon. I think Moon could check Rondo better than anyone else the Cavs have on their roster. I don't think anyone would completely slow Rondo down, but Moon would do a lot better than Mo and Parker have on him. I think a defensive combination of Moon/LeBron on Rondo would have probably won the series for the Cavs.

But you hit the nail right on the head, Mike Brown's rotation is inconsistent and he doesn't seem to use the talent he has. You add in the fact the Cavs have had a terrible offensive system every year under Brown- I think it's time for a change. We get pick-n-rolls with LeBron and Andy, or they just lob it into a 38 year old Shaq (oldest player in the NBA)...really? That's your offense?

The Celtics want it more too. Cavs were the #1 rebounding team during the reg season, Boston was 25th...in their two blowout losses at home, the Cavs got destroyed on the boards...hats off to Boston, the Cavs have been dominant at home, but the C's have worked them over twice at home...they deserve to win the series, Cavs sure don't.

I am glad you would, because that would mean the Lakers would WIN! Sure, Lebron would probably have more points than Kobe, more steals, more blocks........but Kobe in the best player in the league in the last quarter! Lebron doesn't know how to finish....Kobe is THE finisher in the league.

Give me Lebron for the first 46 minutes.....and Kobe for the last 2

I would take the Big 3 plus Rondo over either. I think the C's have a good shot to put it away today, especially if Lebron stays with the delusion that he can keep up with Rondo.

When I think of big 3, I think of the 3 big 7 footers! Bynum, Gasol, and Odom.....with a little Kobe over Rondo.

    • Just a typo. Worth reading the article though.
    • My goalsfor the year are three fold but they all have the number 50. Between April 15 and October 15. 1. Play 50 rounds  2. Driving Range Practice 50 times 3. Dedicated putting/chipping session 50 times To get me in the spirit of things I'm reading a book on Father Son Tom Morris and The Greatest Game Ever Played.   I'm going to be buying this putter because I have a hand tremor, this putter was designed for that which should help my game astronomically.      https://www.biomechsports.com/golf/   Last year I also started dialing in my wedge game by buying a Cleveland 52 56 and 60 degree wedge.  If you have never used a 60 degree wedge you have to try it .  It has changed my short game incredibly.  I also have a good teacher to go to so here's hoping for a great season.   Join me me on my quest for 50.
    • So today I was luck enough to play golf in February in Wisconsin. I changed my irons, 3w, and hybrid going into this season.  I haven't posted much since October that will be changing.  My wife and I bought a house which is a awesome yet a pain in the ass all at the same time.  On Halloween (my birthday) our furnace wouldn't work and on christmas eve a big piece of ice fell off our roof and smashed our A/C unit.   Those issues plus some other remodeling has kept me off TST and completely away from golf.  I played in a scramble on 10/23/16.  Haven't picked up a club until Saturday since that outing (well except to move them from our apartment to our house). I will hopefully be playing a similar amount as last year and working on improving my swing.  I will be getting a updated swing on here once we get some more good weather.  It looks like it will be back into the 30's in a few days. This was my round today. http://www.gamegolf.com/player/Jakester23/round/1336229 I felt pretty good other than a few swings.  Its pretty cool to get 2 rounds of golf in already this year. 
    • We've discussed how bogus the "timing" thing is in other threads… but it doesn't take a genius to figure out that a few mm swinging at 80 MPH or whatever is not going to amount to much "time" to "square" the clubface. Offset works because it tends to make people aim the clubface to the left. They line up the toe and the hosel, and the clubface points left.
    •   Haven't done this in a while... here's my current swing with 6 iron Haven't kept a legit handicap, but first three rounds this year have been +3, +4, +2   what i'm working on: 1. shortening my backswing in order to stay more connected going forward 2. more side tilt in the downswing/getting the bottom of my swing forward to eliminate that unsightly flippy action and lower ball flight 3. eliminating the early extension just before impact... which should straighten itself out once I take care of #2.   any advice appreciated gents!
