The LA Clippers trade PG Chris Paul to the Houston Rockets

Paul and Harden is such a weird combination. I think both are capable of playing off ball but they haven't had to do it very often. The fit is imperfect enough to concern me, the players are good enough to excite me, and the personalities are difficult enough that anything could happen. It's amazing. A+ offseason so far.

I think that helmet slip saved Harper from a seriously long suspension.

I doubt it. Even if he hit him, you'd never be able to prove intent.

Left-for-Dead Celtics Beat Cavaliers in Game 3

Huh? The Celtics have a bunch of guys that would get minutes if they were on the Cavs team.

Nice that we got one good game out of the conference finals at least. I don't count game one of the WCF because I was so pissed off about the Kawhi injury.

I'm not convinced that this is true. Can't see either team losing.

That Gausman ejection is ridiculous and indefensible. Don't really care if it's the umpire or the league's fault but it's horrible. I'm not worried about the players retaliating because they're not stupid enough to think a curveball had any intent and even if they did I would be upset with the stupid retaliation and not upset that the ump failed to make a ridiculous ejection.

especially since the first round pick they threw in is top-18 protected.

And turns into two seconds if (when) it doesn't convey. Great deal for Dallas, head-scratcher for Philly.

The Greatest Comeback in NFL History

That second field goal shocked me. It felt anti-Belichickian to take the points and bet on being able to score 2 more times and convert 2 2 point conversions.

I thought that was a pretty interesting call. Convert the the 4th down long shot (was it 4th and goal?) and you're in a much better position or take the field goal and hope that literally everything goes right from that point on. The roulette wheel vs betting that 5 consecutive coin flips go heads.

Ultimately, I think it was just too long of a 4th down to consider but I wonder where the line is where Belichick decides to go for that 4th down.
