  2. Draymond didn't destroy Jokic at all, he just had a way better team around him which won the series on the offensive end, not with defense. Jokic averaged 31 PPG on fantastic 64.3 TS% and added 13 boards and 6 assists per game and his team had an offensive rating of 113.8 for the series which is pretty damn good for a team missing their second and third best scorers whose second option was freaking Aaron Gordon, a guy who wasn't good enough to be a second option even on Orlando teams which won 25 games. But even if Jokic had been horrible in the playoffs, that's completely irrelevant for the MVP award. The voting was already done and it's not "The best player in basketball" or "Who do you think will do best in the playoffs" award.
  3. Doc Rivers again showing that he's the most overrated coach in the league by far by starting the corpse of Deandre Jordan and insisting that he'll continue to do it.
  4. I thought before the series that Memphis' only chance to win is by completely dominating on the glass and early on they were doing that, but for the whole game it was GSW which had more second chance points, the Grizzlies gave up too many long rebounds due to their guards ballwatching. And the fact that Memphis lost despite Draymond's ejection and Jaren Jackson Jr. channelling Dirk from 3 really doesn't bode well for them. Their rebounding should be better when Adams come back, but I don't know how he'll do defensively against the Warriors's guards.
  5. This is for me the funniest scene ever shot. Especially the ending, but the whole thing is just hilarious even after watching it numerous times.
  6. Valieva should have been sent home, this was totally predictable. And to make it worse, instead of supporting her, the first thing her coach did when she came off the ice after her program was “Why did you let it go? Why did you stop fighting. You let it go after that axel (she made a mistake on her triple axel attempt). Why ”? WTF.
  7. The ISU was already strongly considering raising the age limit for figure skating before this whole mess began, and it seems inevitable they will go through with it now.
  8. I thought the stuff at the Eye was almost as bad as the Nynaeve/Egwene plotline. Painfully bad dialogue and mediocre visuals.
  9. According to his notes Jordan's "dream cast" was absurdly gorgeous, BTW - Hedy Lamarr, Audrey Hepburn, Sophia Loren, Jacqueline Bisset, Nicole Kidman, Isabella Rossellini, Michelle Pfeiffer, Halle Berry and Lucy Lawless for the main female roles. And young Val Kilmer for Perrin.
  10. And rightly so, he's the only player who I've seen plenty of times screaming "And-1" on jumpshots when the defender is half a meter away.
  11. If this rule was in place when he was in the NBA, Dion Waiters would have never been able to finish a single quarter before getting ejected.
  12. This is the dumbest complaint of them all. "They are too pretty, this makes it look like a CW show" makes no sense whatsoever when 99% of the shows on all channels and streaming platforms have gorgeous actors playing the main roles. And the WOT cast is hardly exceptionally attractive by TV standards. Maybe the appearance of Ceara Coveney in Season 2 will help those of you who feel the cast is lacking in this aspect. She certainly can make the infamous bath scene way more popular than its book version.
  13. The Bulls' defence without Caruso, Lonzo and a bunch of others was downright hilarious.
  14. Really disappointing final episode. IMO the ending of EOTW is a mess for the most part yet instead of improving on one of the weakest parts in the books the show managed to somehow be much worse. The writing was a mess, and the directing and editing weren't much better. The whole show is so bland and lacking in anything resembling an unique vision that it really seems the showrunner is over his head and there is too much interference from the Amazon execs. It has all the signs of a show with too many cooks in the kitchen and nobody with the authority and leadership to enforce a uniform vision.
  15. It's already included in two recent anthologies which have paper versions - Best American Science Fiction and Fantasy 2021 and The Best Horror of the Year Volume Thirteen. Also, nice to see that Luhrs's idiotic rant against GRRM didn't win. Too bad it didn't finish below "No Award" though.
