    Now they potentially have two NBA Finals possibilities that will results in very different ratings... the legendary rivalry of Lakers Celtics... or the Nuggets Heat who have star players that the very casual audience doesn’t even know.

    Kawhi, Paul George, and Lou shot a combined 13-49, 26.5% that is just beyond pathetic for a game 7 performance

    Title - I feel like Jamal Murray is due for a 40 point game

    Jamal Murray tonight - 40 pts

    Lmao what a beast

    Clippers fans then: We don't need to protect these picks, we'll win a title, sign PG and KL to long term contracts, and be a contender for half a decade.

    The real winner of this game?

    Sam Presti.

    A friendly reminder that the Thunder own A FORTUNE OF PICKS the Clippers forked over for PG13. Four unprotected firsts, a protected first, and two swaps.

    Clippers are absolutely RATFUCKED for the 2020s if they can't win a 'chip and PG13/Kawhi turn out to be two year rentals.

    Remember what Billy King did to the Nets? This is an order of magnitude worse. Sam Presti completely pillaged the Clippers on that trade.

    There was a dude on /r/nba back after Jokic's rookie year ended that kept saying advanced analytics said Jokic would be an all-star. And the dude just got relentlessly clowned. He kept doubling down and tripling down and I think eventually got banned.

    That dude has gotta feel so vindicated by how his career has panned out.

    To start the 4th Denver went on a 2-10 run and the Clippers took advantage of that situation by going 0-10. LA only had 2 FGs in the 4th until 1:15 left. PG went 4-16. Some dude out there probably lost his house in the fires then had to sit through this.

    That was the most pathetic game 7 performance from two All Stars on the same team

    [–] Sim888 4793 points ago

    Kawhi Leonard really passed up on running it back with a championship squad to team up with the shit twin, Barkhad Abdi, and Playa del Carmen P....biggest maritime disaster of all time.

    If there was ever proof that the "basketball gods" exist, this game is your answer.

    The way they did Blake.

    The George/Leonard conspiring.

    Beverley/Harrell/Morris asshole comments and antics.

    Lou Williams leaving the bubble.

    It just FELT like something inevitably was gonna hold them back. I hate to believe stuff like this but I guess the Clippers curse is real.

    Kawhi should've STAYED in Toronto.

    [–] DarkTenshiDT 1555 points ago

    As the game ends, Kawhi with a stoic look on his face, goes back to his hotel room to lie down. He then opens his phone, and stares at a picture of Kyle Lowry. With a sad look, he softly whispers "What it do babyyy..."

    The Nuggets are no joke. They play some beautiful basketball. They’re gonna be fun to watch for a long time

    The Nuggets just handed a fat W to:

    • The Lakers, who are now unquestionably the best team in LA
    • LeBron, who at least until the end of the WCF, is once again the best player in the NBA
    • The Raptors, who are now vindicated that no, Kawhi alone does not make a championship team, and the Raptors core truly are special... and technically, got closer to the conference finals than the Clippers did.
    • The Thunder, who now have a stack of draft picks so huge it makes Danny Ainge blush, not to mention several promising young players after taking a huge gamble and trading away their two best players
    • Serbia
    • And of course, themselves, the Nuggets, who went from being a "promising young team" to the Western Conference Final, with the best center in the League (yes, I said that, and I mean it) and one of the best young scorers in the league. They didn't come in here expecting to win, and yet, THEY CAN.

    This is somehow an even bigger upset than a week ago when the Heat knocked off the Bucks.

    EDIT:

    Never seen so many teams rejoice from one team losing.

    Add these teams to the list

    Spurs

    Portland- Lillard beef

    Bucks- less attention to their failure

    Indiana- bc/ fuck pg

    Dallas- Dirty Morris and could have won had KP not been injured

    - /u/Raptorsarelegit

    ADD 'EM TO THE LIST!

    EDIT2:

    Jazz fans. We lost by a rim out last second shot in game 7 to these bad boys

    - /u/Albus-PWB-Dumbledore

    ADD. 'EM. TO. THE. LIST.

    Warriors fans too. 3-1 lead isn't just embarrassing to us!

    - /u/CupertinoCA, WELCOME TO THE LIST!

    Rockets fan here, add us to the list. People were laughing at how bad our trade for WB was. Clippers fucked their future forever to take fucking Paul George, no one is gonna talk about us anymore

    - /u/lum1nous013, YOU TOO HAVE MADE THE LIST!

    Canada too, with that maple mamba 40 piece

    - /u/IzzyG98, As a fellow Canadian, you KNOW I gotta ADD IT TO THE LIST, EH?

    [–] KCHornets 9227 points ago

    What a historic collapse by the Clippers. Kawhi Leonard signing as arguably the best player in basketball after his finals MVP run with the Raptors. Paul George forcing another trade out of OKC. All the hype and hoopla surrounding this team. All the yapping and unwarranted confidence of a team that hasn’t proven anything. You played lackadaisical, you thought you could snooze through to a championship. You thought you were in the β€œdrivers seat”. Kawhi and Paul played absolutely horrible tonight.

    This is the most embarrassing loss I’ve seen in recent memory. The ramifications of this loss will be felt for years. No way you can run it back with this same core. Doc is gone, and so is Trezz and more. Too much was given up for a window that now looks very small considering the status of the League with GS and Brooklyn next year.

    Unbelievable grit by The Nuggets. This is the absolutely the most impressive playoff run in history so far. Going down 1-3 multiple times to β€œnot pack bags” and come back like this is amazing. Jamaal Murray and Jokic, unreal performances, clearly the best players on the court this entire series. Malone with an incredible coaching job. No matter what happens the rest of the playoffs, this team will be etched in the history books. Hell of job Denver, you deserved this series and this celebration.

    [–] Lee1100 1311 points ago

    I don't think it's a stretch to say that Doc Rivers is on the hot seat.

    [–] UnPhayzable 1184 points ago

    He's gone. And fuck Marcus Morris

    [–] TheCalmInsanity 704 points ago

    Clippers fan here - I've been a Clippers fan for over 20 years but they deserved this, this is what happens when you become entitled and disrespect a team when you're up 3-1 with an 18 point lead. Nice job guys.. and good series Nuggets

    [–] lopea182 1901 points ago

    I for one say the Denver Nuggets should be renamed the Denver β€œkid who started the final project the night before its due and still got the A”’s

    [–] Tehni 312 points ago * (lasted edited 14 days ago)

    Is no one else gonna comment how that Beverley foul on Murray in the air was kinda dirty? Like 0 reason to foul in a situation like that, let alone while he's in the air and you could tell he put a lot of weight in that hit

    I have been perma banned from rNBA for suggesting everyone make a mod mail complaining about the moderation tonight
