Cavs and Warriors in the Finals! Should be a good matchup! Love him or hate him, Lebron has been incredible in the playoffs so far!

Yes I agree sportsnut should be a great match up. Just to bad that the N.B.A. once again has it`s head up it`s ASS by making everyone wait 1 full week until Game 1 next Thursday June, 4th..... Give me back the GOOD OLD DAYS when N.B.A. Finals games were played on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon at either 1:00 P.M. or 3:30 P.M. or if anyone is really a true N.B.A. old timer and can remember the 1985 Finals between the Boston Celtics and L.A. Lakers where Game 1 was played May 27,1985 ( Celtics beat Lakers 148-114 ) in what became known as the Memorial Day Massacre. The Lakers would go on to win the Championship 4 games to 2 but those were the days when kids growing up could enjoy watching Championship games and not have to worry about going to bed. Now all games start at 9:00 P.M. and kids no longer can enjoy them. Hell even us old timers who have to go to work in the mornings cannot even enjoy it anymore Sad Evil or Very Mad Rolling Eyes

Totally agree Jos; games start way too late for most people to enjoy. I remember those games you are talking about as a lifetime Celtic fan. Loved the afternoon games on weekends. Baseball has the same problem with starting time of their postseason games!

Well guys it is time to refresh this thread as one of the greatest times of the year is nearly here ( March Madness ). Conference tournaments start next week leading up to selection Sunday on March 13th. This year I believe there is no #1 favorite to win it all ( throw about 10 teams into a hat ) and you could get the Champ.

Also the N.B.A. season is winding down and it looks like a run away train out in Golden State is going to set the record books. Back here in Massachusetts I have to say the best part of this basketball season has been watching my Boston Celtics with no big time players and only 1 All Star and a coach in Brad Stevens ( who all N.B.A. experts ) said could not coach in the league have done wonders and stand as the 3rd best team in the Eastern Conference. I still know they are not Championship contenders but could be a dark horse down the line. I am sure Sportsnut as a long time Celtics fan is probably just as surprised as I am with this very young team.

Been watching a good bit of basketball lately. Yes, the Celtics have to be one of the bigger surprises in the NBA. Young coach and young team have things looking up. Shocked about all the old timers ripping on Steph Curry. He's an amazing shooter, who creates his own shots and has unlimited range. Last Saturday night's game was so much fun to watch!

College tourney looks wide open this year. No real dominate teams!

Chit I know Gonzaga going 9 minutes without a basket was a BIG time problem but the officiating by the refs was my biggest problem in this game how the HELL is a Championship game called so tight that every big name player on both teams are in deep foul trouble with still 8 or 9 minutes to be played. The biggest mistake was the non-call of the North Carolina player having his hand clearly out of bounds on that tie up call that gave N. Carolina the ball with Gonzaga leading late in the game.I do not know if it would have made a difference in the final score but how that play was said to be not reviewable is beyond me and even all the so called experts on ESPN said that is was a bogus call that shifted the momentum to Carolina. All said and done the Bulldogs of Gonzaga showed that they truly belonged in the title game and my HAT goes off to them even in defeat cheers cheers cheers
