Thoughts? Besides "People actually watch NBA basketball?" and other such remarks that haven't been original for quite some time.
Regardless of whether or not it was a foul - YOU CANNOT TOUCH THE FREAKING OFFICIALS. There's no excusing what he did. I like the guys at TNT but if they're trying to excuse his actions then they're all having a moment of stupidity...just like Rondo.

I like the TNT crew because they keep things entertaining, though I don't really value the actual basketball opinions of any of the in-studio crew. I really like Steve Kerr as an analyst.

I think they were saying they hoped it would be interpreted as a trip so that something like that wouldn't impact the series.

Them saying he tripped looked kinda tongue-in-cheek to me. JMHO

Stern weighs in?

"I don't want to pre-judge on what the recommendation is going to be," Stern said on ESPN Radio's "The Herd with Colin Cowherd." "But as a fan, he obviously bumped him. And you know what happens with respect to that."

Their turn around to have consistently good regular seasons has been amazing. Now, they need to make a deep run in the playoffs.

Right call. Anymore would've been extreme.

Ok, so Amare punches a fire extinguisher glass, laceration and is probably unable to play now.

Crazy stuff.
