    Them Vegas boyz know how to tease, don't they?:smash:

    It's amazing what kind of spreads they put on the table some times, and there's NO way in Hell I would have given 7.5 tonite, but it almost made perfect sense to do so, based on them SOB's history. :biggrin:

    Great win tonite, 2 more 2 Go!!!

    Peace.

    The guys that did the video mocking Cleveland did one that mocks the TNT basketball guys - it was pretty funny,

    'Kenny owes his career to Olajuwon'.

    'Charles never won an NBA Championship', and they showeed him with a huge gut and said that being from Alabama was worse than Cleveland, or something close to those words. That's worth finding on youtube tomorrow.

    Might have just been my imagination, but I believe that clip with Sir Charles where they mention 'never winning a championship' also featured Chris Webber. :lol:

    Just searched for Charles Barkley and Chris Webber and got this

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I3qpJTE7vy8&feature=related"]YouTube - Chris Webber Behind The Back Dunk On Barkley[/ame]

    may have been the clip they used.

    Buckeneye That boy good

    Just got back from Cleveland, I have to be at work in 6 hours.. I'm pumped.

    The seats were amazing. Section 111 Row 2, I was not 15 feet from Barkley. Grady Sizemore walked 5 feet in front of me and I didnt even recognize him at first... he really blends in, nice guy though.

    Brady was there, Shaun Rodgers, Jay-Z, Joe Thomas and Cribbs. All applause.

    Then Jeter and Toothlessburger were there, resounding boo's that made my heart just warm.

    Incredible crowd, great game. When Lebron made that last and/one the place went nuts.

    The tickets my friend bought were $170 face value, usually around $300 for this type of game. He got them $150 on the Cavs site - godsend.

    I really dont have much to say other than game 7 is in Cleveland on Monday, Go Cavs!

    P.S.

    between my friend and myself we made 3 signs.

    I did my Team Ohio and Give Florida...

    He made a sign that read "It aint over til Van Gundy Sings" - which I"m pretty confident he saw because we were sitting directly across from the magic bench waving them like mad men.

    You just didn't have faith in the Cavs, I did and was awarded nicely!

    I missed two bets, the halftime spread (seriously cavs... you couldn't wait to the 3rd quarter like you normaly do to lose that huge lead?)

    And Andy getting over 7.5 rebounds, he hasn't been close all series cuz he has been guarding the 3 pt line, and somehow he grabs 8 rebounds tonight? Luckily those were the small bets. The big bets paid off, especially the triple double bet.

    BK = kiss of death. I'll have to recoup that $1M by betting on Orlando again for tomorrow night.

    I swear, I don't get "tweets"...it was just the first link to pop up when I searched "Delonte West hip pointer".....

    Finally. The Cavs go +11 last night in the 4th quarter. No coincidence that they won going away.

    The Bulls did that with Jordan? Every play? No they didn't.
    That's the worst offensive set possibly ever. Every play......

    I agree that the defense was much better.

    That was a great entertaining game last night and Bron was awesome in that 4th qtr.
    Big question is can he do it again twice.

    Yeah, it worked well last night.
    You're not going to win a championship like that.

    Its far from being the worst set ever though. I would argue that is a set that we could build around, add some screens and plays around it and you have a very good crunch time play. Especially considering the other plays when LBJ starts with the ball 5 feet behind three point line and he pulls up for three sometimes, which is great when he is unconscious. But this play starts out with immediate pressure on the defense. I think that is not such a bad thing.

    You can get into this play by simple pass entry or pick and roll to take advantage of switching mismatches. I like this play down the stretch.
