    Thought I'd make a thread for those of us who are watching the Series.

    I think Cleveland is going to take this game tonight. But I won't be surprised if they don't. They did not play stellar basketball 2 days ago.

    I REALLY don't like Bogut or Green. But my father's a devout GS fan. But I'm not. I'm just looking for a good series.

    And I would never tell my father this, but I kinda want Cleveland to win. I'm tired of all the fellatio the media has been giving GS this year.

    Feel free to follow along the game here if you like.

    Discuss.

    Santana rocking it out on the National Anthem! I like it!

    Thought Santana's wife on drums was kinda obnoxious and unnecessary...kinda like a 12-yr old banging away on drum kit.

    I'm also looking for a good series as I'm not a fan of either team per se (go Hornets), I'm not a fan of D Green either for the record.

    LeBron has not been the same player this series that he was last year. Christ, his dribbling and layups have been awful. What is going on with this dude?

    I read today where in all nine playoff series LeBron has played where his team lost the first game, he won the second. Hoping he's 10-0 after tonight. Go Cavs!

    And in the first 10 minutes tonight, he's scoreless. Not getting a good feeling here...

    Not a great effort by Cleveland. Nobody catching the fast break passes, nobody getting rebounds (it doesn't help when you're the only one against 3 GS players in the paint), and little communication.

    Now GS smells blood, and they're just bullying Cleveland like a fat kid at a food convention.

    Cleveland has ZERO pick and roll defense.

    I'm not really a basketball fan but since I was born and raised in the Bay Area I say "Go Warriors".

    The only Bay Area team I'm not a fan of is the Warriors. I'm a Portland Trail Blazers fan.

    I kinda want Cleveland to win this. But they just aren't as good as GS.

    GS owns Lebron and the Cavs like Master Renolds owned Kunte.

    Well, there is just 7 minutes left and the Warriors are up by 29. Hmmm.. I'm sensing a butt-kicking in the making.

    Cleveland hasn't a chance against a team that hits 3 pointers at will. GSW is also too fast inside for them.

    I stopped watching it. I've never seen a more boring basketball game in my life.

    Instead, I'm watching the Giants blow yet another game against St. Louis.

    Sigh.

    Don't get me started on the Giants. My wife is a HUGE Giants fan, and has been so for almost 50 years. You should see the vast array of Giants memorabilia that she has - it's staggering. For example, she got a wedding card that was signed by the entire team during a game, and the first player to sign it was Barry Bonds. And we've been getting Christmas cards from Gaylord Perry for literally 50 years. And yes, I can provide pics to prove this.

    Wow! She sounds like a hell of a gal!

    Are you a Giants fan too?

    Yeah, I'm a Giants fan too. Before I met her (24 years ago) I didn't have much interest in baseball. She converted me to a Giants fan but we will absolutely never agree on football teams. She's a die-hard 49ers fan and I am equally passionate about my Raiders.
