Smart of the Cavs to rest LBJ, Irving, and Love tonight vs LAC. They will play tmr vs LAL on the back to back, the easier of the 2 teams to face.
That was kind of a dick move tbh. Why not rest them in the LAL game instead?

The LAC game was nationally televised and it was such a huge letdown to find out they were resting. I was looking forward to watch that game since I decided to stay home. I ended up watching the Bulls/Jazz game and switching between the NCAA March Madness games in between instead.

The NBA needs to make mandatory that teams shouldnt be allowed to rest star players on those nationally televised games.

This is what John Wall spoke of and how the NBA has gotten soft.

It doesn't matter nationally televised or not. Fans are at every game - they are most important, that should be reason enough to not rest stars.

Like that game between GSW vs Spurs just a few weeks ago. Kerr rested basically the entire starting lineup because they were playing like trash. That's two best records in the league, expensive game, and fans gets trash basketball.

dont get me wrong.. i am a fan of Booker.. very solid young player... but players can go off for a game here and there..

Charlie with 48 points in his rookie year....over the other 655 career games he played, only 3 of them he scored more than 30 points..

T-Ross with 51 points in his second year...over his other 376 career games, he was only scored more than 25 points one other time..

obviously, i think Booker will definitely have better careers than these guys... but just saying, u never know when someone is gonna get hot

With only 4 made 3's and without overtime that's tough to do. His coach game-planned around maxing his points which was a good move, now everyone is talking about him and the Suns despite the loss and such a bad season. It's about selling hope over there.

Westbrook willing his team into OT and with his 38th triple-double - a monster of a game!

How this guy is not the front runner for MVP, is beyond me.

Cott Damn at Russell "MutherF******" Westbrook!!!!

Broke a 55 year old NBA record by recording his 42nd triple double. Got over 50pts in that triple double.
And with 2.9 seconds in the game, down by two, this guy sinks a buzzer beating 40ft THREE!!!!!

This guy is phenomenal!!!

We got Ibaka indirectly from OKC. Can we somehow get Westbrook as well. Give him max contract and a nice downtown condo to get him to come over :lol: :lol:

He did win MVP right??
