This is simply heartbreaking stuff. I don't think Boston had any legitimate chance of beating Cleveland, but in the end that isn't what's important. This is a injury that could potentially impact Hayward as a player going forward. Hopefully that won't be the case and he can come back strong from this. Bogut is already well past his all-NBA third team days. Gordon's still in his prime.
Yea I thought it was start of season but it was after signing mid season. Shows how little I follow NBA. Just thought the connection of bad injury in debut was weird.

Beat me, if you can. Survive, if I let you!

kyrie's already broken out, he's an established star. hayward's injury has set up jaylen brown to have the breakout season.

why would u want to take even a tiny risk giving me $300, and not getting anything back in return? we can just call it off. sounds like hayward will be out the remainder of the year, although they may just be saying that so the media doesn't ask about it every game for the rest of the season.

re: NBA: Injury Ball

I love how Boston announced that Gordon will be undergoing surgery.

Yeah, no shit.

I know it's only been 26 minutes, but give Toronto the championship now!

Because the fact that you still even think Boston has a chance, let alone had a chance to begin with even with Hayward, makes me feel sorry for you. I get it, you love Boston. You're a homer, and that's by no means a bad thing. But your lack of knowledge regarding Irving's game, who you somehow think is the missing piece Boston needed, as well as basketball in general, has resulted in you being absolutely 100% convinced that Boston was going to come out on top if they were fully healthy, when in reality it was a very unlikely scenario that not many people envisioned, and there's a reason for that.

In other words, I am pitying you. I should have pitied you at the time I took this bet, but instead I was laughing my ass off with four other guys in the chatbox who all thought you were crazy for taking this bet. But if I do in fact somehow and someway still lose in the end, then I am going to punish myself and give you $300 for it.

re: NBA: Injury Ball

that doesn't make sense though. there is no longer a bet, so there is nothing for u to lose. if u want to play russian roulette, i won't stop u, but i don't expect u to actually send me money even if the c's win.

re: NBA: Injury Ball

Markkanen with a solid debut tonight.

Portis knocking Mirotic the fuck out was a blessing in disguise, as no doubt Mirotic would've started and messed with Markkanen's minutes.
