    Budenholzer made zero adjustments when the Celtics beat the Bucks 2 seasons ago because he was the coach of the Hawks. Joe Prunty was Bucks head coach in that series and is now out of the league.

    Kyrie speculation

    Just watched the full clip on SportsCenter. Kyrie's clear first frustration is with being asked about his FA situation anytime something happens on Twitter. He's trying to convey that first and foremost, so his most incendiary comments are about people continuing to bring it up. That said...

    Games 163 Gamethread

    If you ignore HFA and strength of opponent, Game 163 to decide division/WC makes the same contribution (3.125%) to winning the World Series as the least consequential playoff game - Game 3 of a tied Division Series. It's half the contribution as the Wild Card Game and 1/16 as important as Game 7...

    Players' MPG always adds up to more than 240 due to DNP and OT. The 30x7 plan is still possible even with the 8th-15th men totaling more than 30 MPG.

    Why do you want to trade Scary Terry?

    The 2015 NBA Finals Game Thread AKA Battle Of The Australian Institute Of Sport

      You had the chance to see him single-handedly carry a NBA team into the playoffs from 2007-2010. The difference between those seasons and this one are that in 3 of those 4 seasons, there was a competent Eastern Conference team (Celtics twice, Magic once) that could stand up to just-LeBron...
