    The NBA

    With their loss to the Nets tonight, the Lakers have been officially eliminated from playoff contention. I think that this season has been a very disappointing season for them. I understand that LeBron got hurt and missed several games, putting them back. But even taking that into consideration, I still feel they could have performed better. And possibly still made the playoffs a lower seed. I never believed like some analysts that they would go the WCF this year ( and at best I had them as a 4th seed). But I did think they were going to fare better than they ended up faring this season. I wonder how they may regroup and what decisions they will end up making in the offseason. And this is the first time in several seasons that LeBron has not made the playoffs. I think not playing in them will feel weird to him.

    Another rough loss for the Lakers. It looks like they are just about out of the playoffs. I read an article from a couple of days ago that said that after their recent loss to the Raptors, they could only afford to lose about three more games. They needed to win against the Pistons/Knicks and they lost both games. And next up they play the #1 seed Bucks. https://heavy.com/sports/2019/03/lakers-playoff-chances-loss-raptors/ Also, the Philadelphia 76ers are the latest team to officially make the playoffs, with their win against the Bucks today.

    Though the rockets lost last night, I think overall they have played the Warriors tough/well this year. Maybe if they meet in the playoffs again it will be another long series like it was last year. Also, League Pass is free again until the end of Friday. I think that this is the most free trials they've ever had. I am glad they are doing this again, and I am looking forward to the Thunder/Pacers game that will air tonight on League Pass. I am pleased with how well Indiana has been playing especially in spite of losing Victor Oladipo for the season. They have one of the best records in the league including better records than the 3rd place in the West Thunder and most Western Conference teams. I also am glad that OKC got back to the 3rd seed and want to see them continue to do well. I think they will end up the 3rd or 4th seed. (Hopefully no less than 5th.). Tonight's game should between these two teams should be interesting. It's going to be interesting to see how everything shapes up for the playoffs this last month or so of the regular season. A few teams have already been eliminated from playoff contention, including the Suns in the West and Cavs, Bulls, and Knicks.

    I hope Odell does very well with the Browns. I was already looking forward to watching them next season and this is another reason to watch them.

    The Lakers are definitely in trouble. Tonight's loss against the worst team in the league the Suns was another bad loss for them. I'm not sure if they make the playoffs. They have several tough matchups in their last 19 games, including many against teams that are currently in playoff contention. They very well may not make the playoffs this year. Also OKC has lost four in a row. (Granted they have been without Paul George for a couple of these games.) I hope they will start to bounce back tomorrow and get a win against the Grizzlies.

    That pass that Steph gave to Giannis was a very cool looking play. Also, I am glad to see Dirk smiling and enjoying himself at this All-Star Game. It was a nice that Adam Silver allowed him and Dwyane Wade to be apart of this game as honorary All-Star players.

    Super Bowl LIII: The Live Chat Topic

    Disappointed that the Rams lost and that the Patriots won this Super Bowl. This is the most boring Super Bowl I've seen.

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski and sources from ESPN, the Rockets have agreed to send Carmelo Anthony and cash to the Bulls. The Bulls are expected to waive or trade Melo before the February 7th trade deadline. http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/25818953/houston-rockets-agree-deal-carmelo-anthony-chicago-bulls

    I am concerned about the Rams being inexperienced, but I hope they win this Super Bowl. Last year it took everything Nick Foles had and then some to beat help defeat the Patriots. I hope that the Rams put up a really good effort and defeat them. Hopefully the Rams defense will step and try and contain Brady as much as they can.

    Ugh to the Patriots going back to yet another Super Bowl. The AFC as a whole has got to do a better job of stopping them. I hope that the Rams beat them. Hopefully, the Rams defense will step up and do enough to help them get the win.

    What a bummer for the Saints. I wanted them to win, and they should have gotten that PI call towards the end of the game. If the Chiefs win the AFC Championship, I will root for them to win the SB. If the Patriots win the AFC Championship, I will root for the Rams to win the SB. I will not root for the Patriots to win if they advance to the Super Bowl.

    That was another good game for the Thunder/Sixers, especially the end. These two teams have had some entertaining games against each other these past couple of seasons. Paul George did a nice job of coming up clutch at the end to help OKC win it. I was concerned at how OKC has been struggling their last several games. This was a needed win for them, they had lost 5 of the last 6 games before this one. I hope they can get back to winning consistently again. I don't want them to continue to lose a lot of games against teams they should beat. (Like they did last year.)

    NBA League pass is having another free trial this week. It is going on until January 20th.

    I'm glad that the Saints advanced to the next round. I could see them beating the Rams next week.

    I can't I am very surprised by what is happening to the Chargers. I had a feeling last week when they were playing against the Ravens that they weren't going to do well in this game today. I didn't trust them to beat the Patriots.
