Couldn’t agree more on Billy Donovan. Im surprised that i have not heard anything about him being on the HOT seat. He certainly did not know how to maximize Russell, Carmelo and George. I bet Brad would’ve gotten much more and gone much further with that same team.

Worcester,

Billy Donovan's problem is that nobody on OKC is allowed to have a bigger peter than Russell Westbrook's.

That says something about him as the Head coach. And/or if the front office allows it than Donavan shouldn’t have taken the job. In my very humble opinion, He’s no NBA coach.

The way he coached Westbrook and Durant when they were together didn’t maximize either’s ability, Durant had to work so hard to get his shots, now in Kerr’s system he get so many easy looks. He is a terrible coach, that offense had no identity the whole year.

Cavs got ONE basket from their bench and were able to beat the Pacers in game 7. Hard to believe.

https://sports.yahoo.com/nba/indiana-pacers-cleveland-cavaliers-2018042905/

In a tight 105-101 game, Bogdanovic's 1-9 (and 1-7 on threes) killed the Pacers. Bojan was on fire earlier in the series but consistency is evidently not his strong suit.

Cow,
To be fair, Donovan had KD only for one year. Then KD became FA and decided to get a ring and went to GSW. The coach who couldn't utilize KD and Westbrook was Brooks. I wonder if Brad had that much talent (KD+Westbrook+Harden+Ibaka)...

Hi,
I wouldn't say that "Cavs stole..." - it's more like Raptors lost.
If Celtics get into ECF I'd like them to play Cavs - they're a total mess despite Lebron's been leaving his heart on the floor every single game in the playoffs.

There are teams that other teams just struggled against.  Raptors may not be able to beat Cavs and Boston has yet to prove they can win in Toronto.

This was the year the Raptors were supposed to exercise their demons/Cleveland.  Last night they lost their homecourt advantage.

Would rather play Cavs because the Celtics have homecourt.

There however is the task at hand of getting past Philly which will prove to be very difficult.

Dboss,

Good point about homecourt vs. Cleveland. That's very important.

Should have been a picture of DING DONGS!!!!! Stupidity at it's greatest form.

By the way, did you see that George is likely not to return to OKC and is looking at Philly. This is getting sickening, all these guys holding things over a club's head. Go wherever they will pay you Paul, isn't that what it is all about???? I think this off season is going to be a circul

Philly has the cap space to add a high end free agent.  Paul would fill a huge hole on that team, a 3 and D guy.  LAL may also be in the mix but I think Philly has more high end young talent.  

I think he goes to LA if both him Lebron commit.  

Either tesm better keep adding talent because Boston will be in the mix for a long time.
