They have to ban that. It’s really hard to pick out your own player in the corner.

Plus you have the Ref ask him and still nothing.
Incredible innit. Curry has already thrown one pass to the Dallas bench in a previous game.

Surely once the game starts and he's still standing there in white - off you f**k mate, find another top or back to the tunnel, its pretty simple.

The NBA is a weird league sometimes :drunk:

Bullock goes 0/10 but has the best +/- out of the starters. Box scores are funny.

Imagine being a Warriors fan

6 NBA Finals in 8 seasons

potentially 4 NBA titles in 8 seasons

I have a tough enough time imagining anyone being a Pels fan.

In all seriousness I don't begrudge fans their time in the sun, particularly if they were there during the heady Erick Dampier and Adonal Foyle days.

Also this current iteration of the Dubs can't really be called a superteam, so more power to them. It's not a huge strain on the imagination to imagine a different team winning the championship next year, or even this year. Nailed on to make the Finals now obviously, and possibly a few days breather to boot.

Bring back having to wear suits.

I had never heard of Theo Pinson till the ref asked to change his shirt. All throughout the Suns series he was out there acting like a coach. Kinda ridiculous that he can run up and down the sidelines all game. Are the refs really scared of a guy who has played 87 games over four years?

fair play to them too. Not an offensive team, revolutionalised (steph) the sport.

In the NBA people try to bring in rules to make you better.

4-point line anyone?
