“Steph Curry Is Injury Prone!!” (DTS Podcast – #75)

The Washington Nationals are your World Series Champions!!

Steph Curry gets hurt every year….this time he broke his left hand.

Defense is illegal in the NBA. When you have a 159-158 game that didn’t go to 17 overtimes..you have an issue!!

Athlete-Students are finally getting PAID!!

“The NBA is BACK!!!! (DTS Podcast – #70)

The NBA is finally back!!

And for the first time in nearly a decade, we don’t know who will play in the NBA Finals.

It really is a special time.

ONE THING will always remain a constant though….

The KNICKS will be a DUMPSTER FIRE!!

And lastly, but most disappointing, the league will be without ZION WILLIAMSON for 2 months.

Don’t cry….he’ll lose 20 pounds….and his knees won’t cry anymore either.

That is all.

ESPN released its NBA Power Rankings this week.

They might as well be backward.

“My Phone Ran Out Of Stora….” (DaveTalksSports Podcast – Ep. #41)

DeMarcus Cousins suffers another serious injury, tears ACL.

If you judge, evaluate, and make prognostications for the regular season based on the NFL Preseason….WE CAN NO LONGER BE FRIENDS!!!!

Life, health, love, happiness, family, and friends are more important than how much money you have in the bank or how many cars you have in your driveway.

I would have finished my point, but I forgot to clear out memory storage on my phone before I hit record….because sometimes, I do stupid things too!!

I’M DONE WITH THE NBA!!!!

The NBA is BROKEN!!

It’s also stupid, and imbalanced, and predictable, and irrational, and stupid.

I’ve asked this question before, but let’s give it another try: If you already knew the outcome of a game, would you still watch?? You’d have to be insane to say yes. No. The answer is no. Soooooooooooo, why would anybody watch the NBA?!?!

The Golden State Warriors have won three out of the last four NBA Finals. Even before they added DeMarcus Cousins to their roster, Monday, they were headed toward a three-peat. Although Cousins is working his way back from a ruptured Achilles, he is a top-10 player (when healthy). Since increasing his assist totals, and three-point percentage, he’s become the most versatile big man in the league.

I’m aware of Anthony Davis’ skillset, however, the ability to pass the ball AND shoot the three puts Cousins in a league of his own.

There’s some speculation on Cousins’ path to the Warriors, but as with any story, there are three sides (yours, mine, and the truth).

Cousins claims the Warriors were the only team to offer him a contract….

jim

I’m not saying I don’t believe him….BUT I DON’T BELIEVE HIM.

A report leaked that the New Orleans Pelicans offered Cousins a two-year, $40 million contract. Also, the Los Angeles Lakers claim they turned Cousins down. Also not believable. But if that’s true, the Lakers should punch themselves in the face — immediately.

No matter how Cousins landed on the Warriors, the upcoming season is over. It was over without Cousins. As long as their starting five remain healthy, and under contract, they’ll continue to win championship after championship.

So, now that we’ve established the NBA is broken, DaveTalksSports is going to fix it. With the salary cap increasing every year, and the presence of a “soft” salary cap, ‘Super Teams’ will never cease to exist.

DeMarcus Cousins should not be allowed to join the Warriors for $5.3 million.

DeMarcus-Cousins-Warriors-1

While we live in a free-market, capitalist society, the NBA is a private organization. They should regulate themselves as they see fit. Instituting a pay scale, based on performance, would solve this problem. his would actually help better players earn more money.

Sounds ridiculously fair to me.

This pay scale would be based on statistical performances, plus 1st-team, 2nd-team, and 3rd-team accomplishments (offensively and defensively). The league and the player’s association would then need to agree on how many players from each “tier” would be allowed on a single team. This would create parody, fair play, and a fair season, ultimately resulting in a product that DaveTalksSports (and the world) would want to watch.

As presently constructed, I will NOT be watching the NBA this upcoming season.

That is all. Thanks!

 

Kevin Durant Opens Broom Company

They were winning — until they weren’t.

With their backs headed in the direction of a wall, the Cleveland LeBrons looked to handle their business, at home. They shot out of the gates, grabbing a 12-point lead (16-4) through the first 4 minutes and 40 seconds of the game. However, they, along with the rest of the world, would soon realize it was Kevin Durant’s night. Durant dropped 13 points in the 1st quarter, bringing the Warriors within one (29-28).

A theme would develop, as the LeBrons would find themselves up 13 points (50-37) with 4:06 to play in the 1st half. However (lol), Kevin Durant’s 11-point 2nd quarter brought them within six (58-52) at halftime. It was an unfortunate pattern for the LeBrons, who lacked the foot-on-throat mentality all night.

And now, sit back, relax, and enjoy our halftime show….

broom

Annndddd, we’re back.

The Warriors did what they do in the 3rd quarter. They scored 31 points. Did you know, in this year’s playoffs, the Warriors have scored at least 30 points in the 3rd quarter 13 times?! No, that’s not normal. And the seven times they didn’t reach the 30-point mark, they scored 19, 27, 27, 28, 28, 29, and 29 points. Yup, like I said, not normal.

Despite the Warriors holding a two-point lead heading into the 4th quarter, the LeBrons hung tough. LeBron James, as always, did his thing (despite the commentators stating he played poorly multiple times):

33 points, 11 assists, 10 rebounds, 2 blocks, and 2 steals (in 47 minutes)

The LeBrons reclaimed the lead with 3:11 to play, but again, their foot never got within three feet of the Warriors’ throat. Even with Stephen Curry having one of the worst shooting nights of his career, his lone three-pointer (1-10) came at an extremely opportune time. The Warriors closed the game on a 14-5 run, including a Mortal Kombat Fatality Move by Kevin Durant:

Like, love, or hate the Warriors, you have to appreciate the stone cold look on Durant’s face following this ENORMOUS three-pointer. That look probably stemmed from his unreal performance:

43 points (15-23), 13 rebounds, 7 assists, and 1 steal

110-102, Warriors. 3-0, Warriors. NBA Dynasty (soon to be three-out-of-four championships), Warriors.

 

Well Cleveland, there’s always next yea—-

Oh, sorry!

 

Will the Cleveland LeBrons get swept?? If you don’t think so, please explain yourself, then….seek psychiatric help.

What More Could LeBron Possibly Do????

“Nothing is certain but death and taxes….And the Golden State Warriors winning the 2018 NBA Finals.”

That’s the original quote — I promise.

Poor LeBron

I feel bad for LeBron James.

leBron

At this point, it’s nearly impossible to rationally feel any other way. He’s giving everything he’s got (as always), and it’s simply not enough. People who constantly find ways to criticize LeBron James should find a bridge….and jump. **Don’t actually jump off of a bridge, but at the very least, punch yourself in the face….

Sunday night, the Warriors took a 2-0 series lead in the NBA Finals, after a historic 122-103 victory. Stephen Curry hit NINE three-pointers, breaking the record for made three-pointers in an NBA Finals game. Curry broke Ray Allen’s record (8) from the 2010 NBA Finals when he was a member of the Boston Celtics. Curry finished game two with 33 points on 9-of-17 from three-point range.

Usually, a series doesn’t start until a home team loses a game, but this one, is over. The Cleveland LeBrons never stood a chance. They’re overpowered. They’re outmanned. Simply put, they’re outmatched. No, no, there’s no unless LeBron today. He already went superhuman on the world, in game one, and that didn’t work.

So fat lady — start singing.

Ohhh, The Mets

willson contreras

The New York Mets lose (2-0) in ways only the New York Mets can lose:

An opposing player stealing home

and

A sacrifice-fly to 2nd base

When words can’t possibly do this level of ineptitude justice, we go to the YouTube:

And one more time, for good measure:

I was going to put a video of the sacrifice-fly to 2nd base that scored Willson Contreras (as pictured above), THE CATCHER, but I couldn’t find it!! I guess the world didn’t want something that awful recorded on video. I understand Luis Guillorme is 12 years old, but there’s no reason for that — EVER!!

 

Are the Mets Cursed?? Do the LeBrons have ANY chance in the NBA Finals?? Post your thoughts in the comment section below.
