Today's games hurts the chances of a Sun's Bucks rematch

"hurt" yeah sure

MadzMartigan

😂😂 absolute slaughter. Imagine being a Suns fan and paying to witness this.


Poutinezamboni

Why is Luka still playing?


RetiredClueScroller

So what do I do with these jerseys I bought? I obviously can't wear them now after this


Poutinezamboni

Park them until the next time they make the conf finals


RetiredClueScroller

I hope we don't even score 50


Anersha

All those regular season wins for this??? I feel so bad for any suns fans still watching this lmao


coltsmetsfan614

I don’t. Not after all the shit they were talking. Fuck em.


No-Worldliness-3741

What leverage do Suns have to talk shit? Doesn't Dallas have more rings and finals appearances?


upstatewilly

None, but also, when you're in the basement for so long, I have a hard time blaming fans for beating their collective chest when they're up on their luck finally. Fandom does things to the loyal mind😂😭


coltsmetsfan614

Recent success. That’s it lol


Nearby_Efficiency_15

Grant "Stephen Klay" "Curry Thompson" Williams


JAYCEE--

I really want to see the Finals between Celtics vs GSW to which GSW would be the underdog. Celtics are playing well.


PinwheelsAndUnicorns

I'm kind of hoping for that matchup too. Even though I think we'd be better against the Heat. I think it'd be a great series.


worpete

What not having to play against Khris does to a franchise. Edit: I acknowledge you guys are great this year but I still hate you and will forever be petty.


manbare

rich hearing this from a raps fan


worpete

Oh I’m sorry. Was the meme about Middleton and your franchise inaccurate?


manbare

If you have to put an asterisk next to every win against a team not at full strength then there'd be no legit wins lmao. no one's saying MKE beating BKN last year was some unfair thing. Same with the Raps against GSW in 2019


worpete

See my edit to my original post TLDR Card carrying member of haters club.


manbare

sports isn't about being happy about your team it's about hating everyone elses'


worpete

Hey fuck you for adding to my point buddy!


Cwatty

All you can do is beat the team in front of you. WWWWWWWWW


Valuable-Baked

And they barely saw Timelord. Like I get that Khris Middleton is a stud and much higher on the NBA all star pecking order, but rob does things that make our team stronger and we're clearly missed at times

Bud literally helped y’all win a title last year, and he’s got to go? Lmao.


Educational_Cattle10

You can tell it’s the off-season when the nephews come out


6iix9ineJr

This sub was screaming for Bud’s job yesterday. People are just dumb. Also saw a comment with like 100 likes saying that Ja shouldn’t be considered a star the other day.


Ihopetheresenoughroo

Aw Bud is crying in the postgame interview. I feel bad


ghost91372

still think nwora could've been more impactful than George Hill in his minutes


freethrowtommy

Middleton playing on crutches would have had better minutes than George Hill.


Gurmeetsinghhh

Hope Jimmy buckets gives these Celtics the business 😤


PinwheelsAndUnicorns

While I'll be rooting for the Celts (spent a few formative years in that neck of the woods) I'm a huge Jimmy Butler fan. I'm expecting a fun series.


holonight

INSIGHTFUL


PinwheelsAndUnicorns

It's a fucking game thread dude chill the fuck out


holonight

ARGHHH


Annerkim

I hope this proves to everyone how integral Khris Middleton is to the Bucks.


Bodes_Magodes

What a dumb take. They won a chip last year with him playing a huge critical role. Of course he’s an integral part of the team


Annerkim

Idk man I’ve been seeing people say he should be traded or he’s unreliable and inconsistent most of the time.


baited08

I would love to see who people claim to be consistent. Even the most consistent scorers have bad games and even bad weeks. No one goes 80 game scoring 22 points every games


RitualDJW

Heat in 4


sushog

Lmao the heat are frauds Celtics in 5 mark it


RitualDJW

Hey, I marked it. Hope you enjoyed todays game!


stevecarbone

Maybe lose in four


meatballman1218

BUCKS PACK


Ihopetheresenoughroo

Oooo this shit hit 🚬


Kara_Del_Rey

Tbh Celtics fans are fairly intolerable but the way Bucks fans acted during this series makes the C's win so much better. I get that you guys are new to basketball but you gotta learn how to act.


Micnice61

Need to touch grass if you’re rooting based on \r comments


Kara_Del_Rey

Im not going off just reddit. Nice reach though.


hereforfantasyadvice

Then why do you find Celtics fans intolerable if it’s not based on Reddit comments/posts?


Kara_Del_Rey

Believe it or not, there are many other forms of social media, media, people irl, etc. Get out and see the world bruv


hereforfantasyadvice

Lmao get out of here. That was my first Reddit comment in 2 days cause I was at a bachelor party all weekend and barely online. You have more comments in the past 24 hours than I have in a given week


Kara_Del_Rey

Good job you watched your brother get ready to marry your sister, awesome for you. Imagine thinking a couple reddit comments means anything. Stay sheltered actually, probably better for everyone else.


PulledPorkPlease

SEE YA!!!


IssaMuffin

We did it :')


Ironthoramericaman

Sent KD home, sent Giannis home, tell Jimmy buckets not to get too comfortable


NorthStarPC

Celtics in 6.


joeku_

remember when celtics choked a win away and everyone wrote them off in this series lmao. celtics in 5 or 6


actually-potato

Wonder if the Bucks will move on from Bud any time soon. They almost did last year but winning a ring soothes all wounds. There were some clear missteps he made this series--George Hill over Jevon Carter, starting Grayson Allen instead of Pat Connaughton--but most significantly his "let them shoot 3s" defensive philosophy just didn't work. Obviously the series went to 7 games, so it's not like the Bucks got demolished, but it often felt like Giannis was covering up for a lot of the team's flaws


GooseMay0

KD’s large ass foot saved Bud from being fired last year.


QuitClearly

Who do you replace him with? He’s fine. Not great but fine. Only reason we lost series bad Dante trade and Middleton injury.


Teampiencils

I feel like Middleton's injury is going to afford him one more year at least


RealBuckNasty

I sure hope so.

Candiana

He's a slightly larger young LeBron without a consistent jump shot. That's not to say he isn't dominant, but give Jokic his surrounding cast and you'll have better results.


NeedsMoreJava

I don’t think he’s the *clear* best player alive. Obviously as a Philly fan I have my bias but I’d say Embiid, Jokic, and Giannis all have a case for anywhere in the 1-3 range depending on the day.


Kara_Del_Rey

Im glad they lost but judging 1 game like that is laughable. Jordan, Kobe, and LeBron had miserable games like that (or worse) on more than one occasion.


tayroarsmash

“On one than more occasion”


swankytortoise

I mean LeBron was seen as a playoff choke by some in his younger years


tayroarsmash

What do you think I was saying in my response?


swankytortoise

That they'd had one or less. Apologies if I picked it up wrong


tayroarsmash

The phrase is more than one. One than more doesn’t mean anything.


Kara_Del_Rey

Blame it on the a-a-a-a-a-alcohol


Devourer_of_chiIdren

Who tf thinks he’s top 5? Also I saw someone say he’s better than Hakeem and he’s really not at all


jthaprofessor

You think Olajuwon is better than Giannis? LMAO!! Either you’re 50 or you have zero idea what either of those men offer as players.


PinwheelsAndUnicorns

Am 50. Watched Hakeem's whole career. Have seen Giannis's whole career. Giannis does things that Hakeem was never asked to do. Maybe Hakeem coulda or maybe not, we don't know. But Giannis is nowhere near Hakeem's skill level in the post. Put Giannis in the 90s and Hakeem would devour him alive. Hell, put Giannis on a team in the early 2000s and prime Shaq would positively own him (folks forget how athletic prime Shaq was, especially folks who don't appreciate Hakeem).


jthaprofessor

The way Giannis stretches the floor, and the speed he has and the ability to go coast to coast, Shaq couldn’t guard him dude, are you out of your mind? Hakeem maybe. But both of those dudes are post players with their own unique sets of Skills. Hakeem with his footwork and Shaq with his passing. Giannis is a freak of nature. You can put whoever you want on him, the man is getting to the rack.


PinwheelsAndUnicorns

Watch some Magic games before the trade then. Hell just watch Shaq’s championship series with the Lakers.


jthaprofessor

I’ve watched several. Young Shaq got mopped by Hakeem and then dominated dudes like Rik Smits, an old Mutombo and Kenyon Martin. Shaq could play incredible D most definitely but he’s not guarding Giannis because nobody can guard Giannis. Shaq can’t close out on the Freak and Giannis is an inch shorter and runs like a gazelle. I just want to know what y’all are smoking.


PinwheelsAndUnicorns

"Several." Watch 90s defense over the course of a season and postseason. Not just highlights. But watching games when they fucking happened. Trust me, in 20-25 years you're gonna sound just like me. Eras are what they are. Imagine the numbers Shaq would put up with todays rules. Imagine what kind of efficiency Iverson could have achieved with all the hand check rules we have nowadays. Imagine what shooters from that era could've done with coaches promoting today's analytics. Watch the game.


jthaprofessor

I do think about that stuff all the time. Steve Nash and Ray Allen came 10 years too soon. I have a hard time thinking about AI in a different era because that dude didn’t facilitate offenses the way the small ball guards of today do. I love Iverson but he was far from the ultimate teammate. The fires today are just too fast and top athletic. I love the NBA, point blank, period but the teams from the 90s would be down by 30 at halftime. It’s not a flex, it’s just a fact. Everyone can shoot now, everyone can space you out now and every team has at least two great players.


Candiana

You've just described young LeBron, but LeBron had a better jump shot. And yes, prime Shaq would have mopped the floor with Giannis. You can't bulldoze a 320 pound behemoth, which removes about 50% of Giannis' repertoire. Also they used to call 4 steps a travel in Shaq's day lol.


jthaprofessor

Shaq guarding Giannis 😂😂😂😂😂😂 Shaq couldn’t guard Duncan or Hakeem and those dudes aren’t the athlete that Giannis is. If you think those big dudes that couldn’t play any position but post could guard the modern alpha athletes and dudes like Giannis or LeBron then I don’t know what to do for you. There’s no hope of us having a meaningful convo. Giannis ain’t Mutombo my guy lmao


PinwheelsAndUnicorns

Absolutely, he’s almost a guaranteed travel in the post during that era.


jthaprofessor

Yeah because they were really notorious for calling fouls back then, huh? Lmao


FlyGuyDan

Idk who's calling him top 5 all time, that would be dumb. Dude did everything he could though, Celtics defense just stepped up big and the rest of the bucks forgot how to shoot. Also the bucks defensive game plan is horrible


DominoAxelrod

so dude isn't allowed to have one 'just pretty good' game 7 after putting up 50 to close out the finals?


[deleted]

[удалено]


DominoAxelrod

putting up a 25/20/9 line after absolutely carrying his team all series tarnishes his rep? he missed a few bunnies tonight. it happens when you're exhausted from being your team's entire offense for 6 and a half games.


[deleted]

[удалено]


DominoAxelrod

cherry picking. do the 10 in the first quarter not count? 25/20/9. If that's a line that tarnishes his rep then almost every game tarnishes every player's rep. Not to mention that they're only in game 7 because he put up 120ish points and 50ish boards in the previous three games. He absolutely carried a team with no other threats against one of the best defenses in the league.


trailmixxxed

If that's what you expect of him? Lol


DominoAxelrod

he put up 25 and 20. That's not a bad game. There are lots of greats who put up worse game 7's. No one can have their best game in every big game.

RAZRr1275

Celtics aren't even shooting from 3 that well its just that when your defensive scheme lets them that 50+ attempts they don't even need to shoot particulary well to create a big scoring differential


QuitClearly

40% pretty good.


RAZRr1275

Its def pretty good but if someone saw the point differential without the atteps they'd think it was one of those crazy games where a whole ass team shoots like 50% from 3


Sleeze_

Yeah, shooting 13% to match also hurts


Cdenas1111

Bucks try to guard a 3pt shot challenge (IMPOSSIBLE)!!


MyQueenDoreen

(In the hood!) (Gone SEXUAL!!)


ChubbyPenguin7

Bucks try to make a 3pt shot challenge (IMPOSSIBLE)


MintCreamy

Well now everyone finna be on Giannis ass now


NorthStarPC

Nah. Giannis isn’t the best player in the NBA in my opinion, but he balled this series.


Pal__Pacino

If the Finals is Celtics-Suns or Celtics-Warriors, I'm not watching a second of it. Think of all the wonderful movies I could be watching instead... Edit: Do you guys have a problem with watching great movies?


NorthStarPC

Celtics vs Mavs.


Micnice61

Missing Classic finals for Jackass forever nice you do you


Pal__Pacino

Jackass Forever was great. Idk what your problem is.


Kara_Del_Rey

Breaking: Lakers fan mad they haven't won a legit ring in 12 years


Pal__Pacino

Even if that statement were true, one championship in 12 years is pretty good. Better than most fans can ask for.

Pal__Pacino

Because there's a possibility that a team I don't hate can still win it. Once all those possibilities are eliminated, no point in watching. What's so confusing about that?


Pal__Pacino

Nah man you guys earned this win. There are just a lot of great movies to watch out there.


Fickle_Muffin_1320

Bucks game plan: leave 3 point shooters open


QuitClearly

Have you not watched bucks all year?


Emergency_Pepper_178

Y'all would have LOVED a series against them lol


Fickle_Muffin_1320

BBQ chicken


Jesotx

Can you imagine?


ryeyun

What a great series. I felt like the Celtics let a couple games slip but I'll never doubt the grit of Giannis and the Bucks. Not having Middleton hurt.


harry_the_don

This is why it's so difficult to win multiple championships. Injuries are huge part of basketball. Last year the Bucks benefited from injuries this year they got screwed by them. That's just how it goes


KuchEconomy

Yeah it goes both ways, I can live with that.


DominoAxelrod

Warriors are another great example. They probably lose their first title but for injuries and win the one vs the Raptors but for injuries.


blue_starburst

Also probably win 2016 if not for that + Draymond suspension


Reese-stayed-humble

All 3 of the mvp candidates are eliminated


ghost91372

All had james harden or major injuries to their teams


Greedy_Arugula_2529

But we all new Grant Williams was mvp all along

How soon can we give Grant Williams the super max?

Should be unwatchable. NBA needs to address flopping. Not sure who to root for in the east.

Smart vs Lowry and Butler. As much as I hate Smart, there’s 2 fools to hate on in the swamp


charlesspeltbadly

Did you watch this game lmao


RealBuckNasty

Or the Celtics’ entire season?


Bodes_Magodes

The hurt is strong with this one


hriszzzzz

Hey I’m trying to pick the lesser of the two evils here. Give me a break. Above all though CP3 shouldn’t win one. Steph will take care of that as he always whoops that trickster.


hriszzzzz

I just don’t want to see Butler, Lowry, CP3 win. We will take care of the Suns if the Mavs don’t. Just hoping the Cs can knock out the flopping alligators
