  1. I'll be amazed if anyone among the writers even remembers that such a sword exists.
  2. It's a bad idea to question the Lord/King's decisions publicly in front of his bannermen. The bannermen aren't his friends. There are always some of them looking for signs of weakness or division within the ruling House. IIRC Catelyn made this exact point to Robb and as much as she disagreed with him, she made sure to never call him out publicly. Anyway, another dumb episode. Such a shame to largely waste so much money and the efforts of so many people in the technical departments due to the utter incompetence of the writers who seem completely unable to write more than 10 minutes of passable dialogue per episode.
  3. Kyrie is such a frustrating player to watch. He has an unbelievable skill at scoring and dribbling but his tunnel vision and playground style, not to mention his hilariously bad defense, really hold him back. His team was one point down with 40 seconds left on the clock yet instead of going for quick shot and 2 for 1 he wasted more than 10 seconds dribbling in place and then chucked a contested 3 which meant that the Cavs were forced to foul. He had so many great finishes and drives before that but ruined his game with that I hate that Durant move made the league so uncompetitive, but people need to give him credit for his great play in the finals. That 3 point dagger in the end was his trademark shot. The ratings of the finals have been great, and that's what the league cares about. It's all about the money.
  4. Game 6 and 7 of the conference series would have been on ESPN and TNT, not on ABC which shows the Finals. The times won't be flexed because ABC want them to be set before the playoffs have started and have paid big bucks for this right.
  5. Last year was last year. This year the Dubs are much stronger while the Cavs are pretty much the same. Not only the Warriors have Durant now, but Curry is fully healthy and in great form. Forget the regular season record, they were coasting a lot of times unlike in 2015/16. Sure, the Cavs are usually better defensively, but they are still not a great defensive team by any means. I expected this series to be over in 5 games max.
  6. The most worrying thing for the Cavs is that they got destroyed even though the Warriors shot pretty poorly by their standards. Klay kept bricking and didn't make a single shot from outside the paint even though he had a lot of excellent looks, Draymond shot poorly too. The Warriors as a team shot only 42.5% and that's with all the dunks in transition they got. Yet they still won handily. And their bad shooting wasn't because the Cavs played good D, it was mostly missing easy looks. the Cavs also did a horrendous job of ball pressure and forcing turnovers. Warriors are just a way better defensive team and that's why I don't see Cleveland having much of a shot.
  7. No, it doesn't. It says that almost every time Jon bested Robb at something that made Cat annoyed, not that Jon bested Robb almost every time.
  8. Cat was annoyed when Jon bested Robb in something. That does not mean Jon tended to best Robb in most (or all) things. He certainly wasn't regarded as a young prodigy like Rhaegar by his family or anyone else.
  9. The way these playoffs are going I almost expect LeBron to get the first serious injury of his career five minutes into Game 1 and the Finals to end up being a boring sweep and the cherry on top for the most boring playoffs in recent history. It's been quite ridiculous how all the opponents of Cavs and the Warriors except Indiana got key players injured early in the series against them and made the series even less of a contest. Not that they wouldn't have made it to the Finals anyway, but at least we might have seen less blowouts and some 4-1 or even 4-2 series.
  10. Did he? I have serious doubts about that, if you mean romantic love. They were supposed to have arranged marriages for political gain, and love developing in such marriages isn't that common. He was well aware that his own marriage was quite unusual for his social class. I really doubt that. Catelyn, like most nobles in Westeros, don't care much about male nobles siring bastards in itself, it's very common and seen as no big deal. What is seen is a big deal and something very much against the custom, is raising the bastard son at your castle while you are married and treating him almost the same as your trueborn children. This is what made her angry. She would have told Robb if he had asked her what to do after he slept with Jeyne and before he married him "Have 5 kids from Jeyne, I couldn't care less, and neither will Walder Frey, as long as you don't marry her".
  11. The Cavs shoot a great amount of 3s too. In fact, they are shooting 3 more three pointers per game in the playoffs than the Warriors these playoffs. Last season's playoffs they only shot 2 less three pointers per game than the Warriors. 3 of the top 5 teams in 3 points attempts per game in the regular season are in the conference finals and Houston weren't that far away from reaching them too. Anyway, these playoffs so far have been major disappointment for me. too many blowouts, not enough close games and it's blatantly obvious the Cavs and the ewarriors will reach the finals and may even not lose a game until then.
  12. Wizards' hilariously bad bench proved to be their undoing. Their starters were gassed at the end, especially Wall. Jennings was hilariously bad all series, Brooks should have given Satoranski more minutes in this series IMO.
  13. The Pop rant today about Zaza was nice to hear for all of us mad at Zaza but pretty hypocritical coming from a guy who coached Bruce Bowen for years and IIRC actually encouraged him to continue to undercut shooters.
  14. Pop got really mad talking about Zaza's dirty play today. Kawhi will miss Game 2 for sure, maybe other games too.
  15. Just when I thought we might get a competitve series, Kawhi got injured. Now even if he comes back quickly, I expect this to be a comfortable Warriors win, too much talent and they aren't rusty now. The Spurs needed to steal this one after the great start to have a shot. Also, fuck Zaza. He's always been a scumbag.
