The Cavs Made The Right Adjustment The Cavs Made The Right Adjustment

It was the third quarter, and the Warriors, already ahead on the scoreboard and up 3-0 in the series, were doing their third-quarter thing. That is to say, they’d decided to apply the 12 minutes of focused full-bore effort it takes to render them effectively invincible. A game they’d led steadily pretty much from the…

Warriors Heroically Overcome Jeff Green, George Hill, & Rodney Hood To Claim NBA Title Warriors Heroically Overcome Jeff Green, George Hill, & Rodney Hood To Claim NBA Title

Despite facing a Cavaliers superteam of NBA legends like José Calderón, Cedi Osman, and George Hill, the Golden State Warriors fought their way past the odds to claim their third league title in the past four years and their sixth overall with a 108-85 win.

They Already Said They Weren't Going To Go, Man They Already Said They Weren't Going To Go, Man

Even though LeBron James and Steph Curry had already said that neither of their teams would visit the White House if they won the NBA Finals, today Donald Trump tried to pretend like he wouldn’t have invited them anyway. Surely the basketball players will regret the opportunity to watch a septuagenarian trot his…

Just How Extremely Over Are The NBA Finals? Just How Extremely Over Are The NBA Finals?

Let me take you inside the game for a moment: we record the Deadcast a little while before you actually hear the Deadcast. It is not, despite the seamlessly integrated ads and effortlessly fluid riffage, a live show. When we recorded this one on Wednesday morning, the NBA Finals were not quite as extravagantly over as…

Kevin Durant Lightly Restrained After Hearing Very Funny Or Very Boring Heckle Kevin Durant Lightly Restrained After Hearing Very Funny Or Very Boring Heckle

Last night, it was not “KD you suck” that got Kevin Durant’s attention and made him walk slowly in the direction of the heckler, but rather that classic barb that gets under everyone’s skin: “KD! You cheesebutt!”

Kevin Durant Is A Recurring Nightmare Kevin Durant Is A Recurring Nightmare

The bad dream that’s afflicting LeBron James is a long one, replete with horrors. J.R. Smith is there, wandering around with a lit M-80 in his hand. Jordan Clarkson is somehow lurking around every corner, wearing Kobe Bryant’s face as a mask. Kevin Love’s drowning in a glass water tank and LeBron can’t break him out,…

Kevin Durant Won The NBA Finals Tonight Kevin Durant Won The NBA Finals Tonight

Even if everyone already knew the Warriors were eventually going to win the NBA Finals regardless of what happened tonight, Game 3 was actually pretty fun. The Cavs gave the Dubs their best shot on the way to a respectable 110-102 defeat. Kevin Love came to play, Rodney Hood reminded us that he was a qualified…

LeBron James Has Always Had To Carry Useless Weaklings LeBron James Has Always Had To Carry Useless Weaklings

As we wait out the formality that these lopsided, nightmarish NBA Finals have become, it’s still worth acknowledging just how impressive it is that LeBron James has carried such a messed up, broken Cavs team through the Eastern Conference. With a supporting cast of old three-point specialists, active saboteurs, horny…

Kendrick Perkins Somehow Becomes The Central Part Of An NBA Finals Controversy Kendrick Perkins Somehow Becomes The Central Part Of An NBA Finals Controversy

At the end of the third quarter of Game 2, Steph Curry missed a three and sauntered back towards his bench in front of the Cavaliers. Most of the Cavs let him walk freely, but not Kendrick Perkins, who refused to close his widespread legs and knocked knees with Curry.

Here's Four Minutes Of Footage From Game 1 Of LeBron James Not Murdering J.R. Smith

Yes, Game 2 already happened, and it went just about as everyone expected after the Cavaliers blew their chance last week. It’s still worth going back to look to Game 1 and the exact moment this Finals series ended.

What Are You Supposed To Do About Steph Curry? What Are You Supposed To Do About Steph Curry?

Steph Curry makes you want to ragequit. Throw up your hands; throw the controller across the room; swear, loudly, to an empty apartment. It’s a videogame term, but he’s a videogame talent: hitting low-percentage (for anyone else) shots at a rate that should be beyond human capabilities, and when the algorithm decides…

Watching The NBA Finals At Oracle Arena With The Overlords And Oligarchs In Club Prick Watching The NBA Finals At Oracle Arena With The Overlords And Oligarchs In Club Prick

I watched Game 1 of the NBA Finals from extremely expensive seats in Oracle Arena, but I didn’t see J.R. Smith’s towering goof.

J.R. Smith Is No Longer So Certain He Knew The Score J.R. Smith Is No Longer So Certain He Knew The Score

J.R. Smith was pretty clear after Game 1 that he knew the score and situation at the end of regulation, and that what appeared to be an all-time blunder was, in fact, a combination of team-wide confusion and a running clock. The play sure didn’t look that way, but that was his story and, honestly, it’s J.R. Smith, so…

NBA L2M Report: The Refs Made A Big Dumb Mess Of The End Of Game 1 NBA L2M Report: The Refs Made A Big Dumb Mess Of The End Of Game 1

It would be hard to overstate just how badly the Cavs were screwed by the universe at the end of Game 1 Thursday night. A rare reversed judgment call, an unexpected missed free throw, an uncalled lane violation, an apparent uncalled loose-ball foul, and an all-time blunder by one of their own, all inside the final…

Tristan Thompson Avoids Suspension For Game 1 Tussle Tristan Thompson Avoids Suspension For Game 1 Tussle

The NBA announced Friday that Tristan Thompson has been fined $25,000 for cramming a basketball in the face of Draymond Green during the dismal final moments of Game 1. Thompson was issued a Flagrant 2 and ejected by referee Tony Brothers—who, along with his fellow Game 1 referees, will never again in his life receive…

Don't Let J.R. Smith Distract You From JaVale McGee's Own Incredibly Funny Failure  Don't Let J.R. Smith Distract You From JaVale McGee's Own Incredibly Funny Failure 

An NBA Finals game featuring Nick Young, J.R. Smith, and JaVale McGee was always bound to be full of goofs and gaffes, and while everyone is justifiably mocking Smith for forgetting how time and numbers work, let us not forget that McGee had perhaps an even funnier botched play in the third quarter.

So, Can LeBron Do That Four More Times? So, Can LeBron Do That Four More Times?

J.R. Smith’s inexplicable game-ending dribbling demo is and should be the thing fans remember about Game 1 of these short-looking 2018 NBA Finals, but lost in all the hubbub around Smith’s all-time brain fart is that the Cavs absolutely should have won a road game against a Warriors team that really played well. The…

Draymond Green Is The Supreme Heel Draymond Green Is The Supreme Heel

Draymond Green burst some blood vessels in LeBron James’s left eye while barely making a play on the ball, causing it to glow red for the rest of the night. Draymond Green walked to the bench and called James a “fucking pussy.”

LeBron James Leaves In A Huff After Reporter Asks Him About What J.R. Smith Was Thinking

LeBron James abruptly exited his postgame press conference last night after ESPN’s Mark Schwarz asked repeatedly about J.R. Smith’s fascinatingly awful play at the end of regulation in Game 1 of the Finals. It’s hard to look appropriately mad in suit shorts.

On Further Review, Video Review Ruined Game 1 On Further Review, Video Review Ruined Game 1

The challenge is to leave aside, even if just for a second, the question of whether it actually, truly was a charge or a block.
