I'll get that eventually. But not yet. He's still very young.

Also, I want Duncan to get one more before he goes out.

same. i expect the spurs will still contend next season. i see no reason why not unless ginobili and duncan drop off a ton and their 4 through 10 players in the rotation don't improve much. in that case i wan duncan to have 5-6 rings. after that it's the thunder's to lose, but i want to see lebron get one at least, and kd to get many.

yeah i definitely underrated San Antonio for sure. my LA pick was based on the assumption that they would have Howard or Paul (which was a wrong assumption lol). i also underrated OKC a lot.

everyone underrated san antonio. popovich didn't even know what he had at first.

That's because it is only really year two of this current system they're running and he's finally got all the pieces that will work in that system.

i underrated them for a specific reason though: they got owned in the first round last year. i mean, OWNED. they just look done. but so did Dallas a couple years ago. and look what happened. i gotta learn not to give up on these teams. (oddly, the team i refused to give up on was the Lakers lol)

i don't know exactly what i meant by that statement actually. my best guess is i was trying to make a reference to them winning the title in the last lockout year.

damn that was a tough one. why KG was dishing up a 3 at the end of a close game is beyond me. kudos to rondo though. what a game. i think him, lebron and mb westbrook are the only players in the nba capable of throwing up that stat line. also played the entire game including OT. more of a testament to how depleted their bench is but still.

interesting stat: LeBron attempted FT-24, Celtics-29

Lot of ticky tack shit from what I saw but also a lot of unintelligent basketball plays from the Celtics.

first player to ever do that in the playoffs. i know you think stats like that are "arbitrary" but only person to ever put up those numbers in the history of the nba. thats pretty cool. he was shooting better than ive ever seen him.

jesus Rondo had twice as many assists as the rest of his team combined and still scored about 2/3 as much as they did combined. i didnt get to watch the game, but that's crazy.

that's fair. i felt that way too. at the beginning of the season no one could have known that they would make so many brilliant personnel moves, and be so healthy and spry because of the shortened season.

I think they limit it to the last 26 years since there aren't box scores to many of the games before that.

Bob Cousy had 50 points in a 4-OT stallfest (pre-shot clock). He scored 50 of his team's 111 points, hitting 30 of 32 free throws, scoring 9 of his team's 12 in the last OT. He averaged 6.2 apg that post season, so it's possible in four overtimes he was able to get at least 10.

Edit: Here are the five playoff triple doubles from Oscar Robertson from which I have numbers (he had three more that I don't have dates or numbers to).

Oscar Robertson vs SYR 3/21/63 41 Pts 15 Reb 12 Ast W 133-115
Oscar Robertson @ SYR 3/26/63 32 Pts 19 Reb 13 Ast W 131-127 (OT)
Oscar Robertson @ BOS 3/28/63 43 Pts 14 Reb 10 Ast W 135-132
Oscar Robertson @ BOS 4/06/63 36 Pts ?? Reb ?? Ast L 120-125 (no rebound or assist numbers, but it's at least 10 and 10).
Oscar Robertson vs BOS 4/07/63 36 Pts 15 Reb 14 Ast W 109-99

Technically, using the narrow criterion of most points with at least 10 assists and 8 boards, Rondo has him beat.

Edit: Another contender that Rondo beats: Jerry West
Jerry West vs BOS 5/05/69 42 Pts 13 Reb 12 Ast L 106-108

Wilt Chamberlain's best playoff triple double was @ CIN 3/22/67 37 Pts 27 Reb 11 Ast W 123-102 (ignoring two games from '68).

most of those games are as or more impressive than rondo's imo. lebron's game against indiana was also more impressive. not to take away from rondo. that was still phenomenal.

IMO lthe other night Rond gave what has be one of the best playoff performacne ever that resulted in a loss. Ray Allen in Game 6 against the Bulls in 2009 is up there. 51 points, 9 3-poniters, plus it went to tripple over time! But Isiah Thomas in Game 6 of the 1988 Finals aginst the Lakers has to be the best. 41 points (25 in the third quarter), 8 assists, 6 steals, AND he was injured. But the Pistons still lost and by a single point. Ouch.
