    offensive foul only because the reach wasn't called.

    How is that a foul? It was a shooting motion and the player was not set.

    The defender is allowed their space..but in my opinion he put himself there by getting in too tight to Tatum.

    Theis is in for garbage time. Should have been in for Al while he was handing the game back to Miami.

    Well this sucked. B2B is real but would have liked to see them build on last night rather than take a few steps back.

    I don't get Brad's subbing strategy.. leaves them out too long going into the fourth and let the game get away.. then puts them in when the lead is too big and leaves them in too long once it's statistically improbable that they'll come back. It's like he has to rest guys like Kyrie for the first 4-6 minutes of the fourth quarter or something.

    The offense was not there, but this is a two-point game if the Heat shoot from three like they have all season and not 47%

    Bank shot 3? Can't believe that was planned.

    I've got an autographed Wade jersey sitting in my closet. Been there for years. Not even sure where I got it from.

    Been saying this all year. The first 16-18 minutes of every half are scripted. The substitutions barely change. Kyrie usually plays the first 8 minutes or so of each half, then sits until there is about 6 minutes left in each half. Same with most of the rest of the starters. Gordon will be the first man in, usually for Morris or Tatum, then Brown will come in, along with Theis, and finally Rozier, etc. Lather, rinse, repeat. Doesn't matter the score, the opponent, the situation, same thing game after game.

    Kyrie actually played the whole 1st and 3rd quarters tonight, which seemed odd.

    I can't disagree. Perhaps when Baynes returns, Brad will abide.

    In his last 116 minutes, Kyrie Irving has 3 foul shots.

    I don't care if he's taking jumpers or avoids contact, nobody can tell me that Kyrie, who handles the ball as much as he does, never has a guy reaching in, slapping at a ball as he's going up, or trying to block him and gets a piece of his arm, or gets him the body....It's getting worse.

    It was definitely a little odd. He's stretched him a few times in the 1st quarter this year, and may have played the whole 12, but it usually just means a longer breather in the 2nd quarter, so instead of coming back in with 8 minutes or 6 minutes, he'll sit until the 4 minute mark. Not sure I've ever seen him play the whole 3rd quarter, but the C's were on a run at that point. Of course, then Rozier came in, and Al, and it all went to shit.

    If you don't have an attachment to it, sell it on eBay. Or better yet, spray lighter fluid on it and set it ablaze and film it for us to see.

    I would pay to see Rondo pummel Wade with punches and roundhouse kicks to his smug bean.

    Unless I'm mistaken, the only team the C's have beaten on the road this year, that is currently above .500 is the Thunder, in the 5th game of the season, and the Thunder were 0-4 at that point.

    Edit: They also beat Philly in the season opener on the road.

    This pattern of coaching is worthy of criticism in other contexts, but in a road game against a decent team on the second night of a back-to-back, I’m more than fine with it.

    I don't think I have Certificate of Authenticity for it. I've got a huge memorabilia and trading card collection, but unfortunately, I have a ton of stuff that I picked up at charity auctions and stuff and never followed up on the COA's. Now, I'd have to send it away to get it authenticated and shit, and I'm just not that motivated, so it sits in the closet with autographed jerseys from Jameis Winston, Sidney Crosby, Ray Bourque, and a million other things.

    Westbrook is putting up a 42/23/67 shooting line this year and he's taking 19.8 shots a night, and the Thunder, playing in the West, somehow have a virtually identical record to the Celtics (25-15 to 25-16). If Kyrie was putting up those numbers, the C's would be 5-35, even though they have more talent around Kyrie than the Thunder have around Westbrook, IMO.

    Thunder have 2 players besides Westbrook better than anyone on the Cs not named Kyrie. One of them is better than Kyrie too.

    Off topic.. I have a 1988 Fleer MJ card that I sent through the mail back in the day..as I did with a bunch of other cards to other players.. and it is signed and was returned to me. I know he had ghost signers, but I've looked at a couple sites and it looks like his autograph from the period and I think it may also just be early enough in his career that it's real.. do you have someone you'd recommend to send/bring it to to get it authenticated?

    At this point, I'm not counting on it. Brad has played Al at the 4 for a total of 42 minutes this season.

    I don't know much about the logistics of NBA travel for BTB games, but Gorman mentioned last night that they were leaving after the game and arriving in Miami around 3am. Why would you do that instead of letting everybody get a normal night's sleep at home and then flying early afternoon today? Seems like everyone would be fresher, and maybe guys like Al would actually be useful.

    There's two companies that do authentications. Beckett and PSA. I'd probably send that to PSA, to authenticate the signature. Depending on the condition (if you post a picture, I can tell you what I think of it's condition), you may also want to get it graded (they grade from 1-10).

    Not a lot of recent sales of cards from that time period that were autographed, but there are a couple listed for sale on Ebay. Once it's authenticated, the company puts it in a plastic "slab" and sends it back to you. Here's one from 1988 that's autographed, and authenticated by PSA, and they are asking $3,499:

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Bulls-Mich...a:g:PHEAAOSwGNxbEiaR:rk:3:pf:1&frcectupt=true

    Another one asking $3,900.00

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/1988-Fleer...3:g:9awAAOSwIzBau~26:rk:2:pf:1&frcectupt=true

    This is the website for PSA: https://www.psacard.com/

    They probably aren't going to sleep until 3am after a game anyway even on nights with no travel. In this case you don't have to worry about people waking up in time to catch a flight and the players get to rest before the game.

    Does that work?

    edit: this website has a signature from 1988 that seems similar https://live.autographmagazine.com/...24372:Comment:493871&x=1#3524372Comment493871

    Hmm, interesting. Would love to know when that happened, so we can figure out what happened on the court to precipitate it, although I'm sure someone will be reporting on it soon enough.

    Tough to tell how good the corners are, but the centering is pretty off, so at absolute best, I think it would grade a 6/7. Considering it's not his rookie year, or even his 2nd year, I don't think grading is worthwhile, but the money on that one is in the autograph. Based on the list prices, I would imagine if the autograph comes back authentic, it'd be worth around $1,500 or so.

    Yeah.. I have another one that is off center too I think.. also a Pippen rookie with the same deal... $1,500 wouldn't be a bad haul though.
    That year I got returns from Xavier McDaniel, Kevin McHale, Derek Harper.. My more interesting autographs came as a kid when my town had a charity softball game.. Jim Nance, Dave Cowens, Rico Petricelli, Greg Kite, Dom Dimmagio and Johnny Most.
