Yeah! Technically, I knew Wilt backed out. That's not what I sayting. Ali's camp was relieved that fight never happened. Of course Ali wasn't worried. He never feared anyone. It was the trainers and entourage that worried.

Dude stop. No bro boxer or anyone on any boxing team is afraid on an NBA player.

As someone who has spent his life in and around the sport of boxing you sound ridiculous to me. I don’t give a damn how tall you are if you don’t know how to box and have never trained to box you are absolutely no threat at all in that ring especially to the single greatest heavyweight of all time.

You have no idea how complicated boxing is.

Sorry I really hit a nerve with you. Yes I have boxed. I do know boxing. I actually think Ali would have won. He would have gotten inside those longs arms and turned them into a disadvantage. Still doesn't mean his camp was not relieved. I am just relaying what I heard about the fight. I mean no disrespect to you or Muhammed Ali. If I offended you in some way, I apologize. In fact, if it makes you feel better, I am totally wrong and you are totally correct in every way and vastly superior to me. I hope that makes you feel better.

Is Beverley stupid or he just doesn't care? LeBron drives late in the game, gets hit on the left arm by Tatum but the refs don't call it. During a dead ball Beverley walks out on the court, holding an actual DSLR camera and offers to show the ref proof they'd missed the foul! The ref looks at him and then T's him up. So they start the OT with a T on Beverley and a FT for the Celtics which they make and the Celtics win in OT.

I mean yes they did miss a foul on the play but how stupid can you be

It sounds like Beverley has toned his behavior down a bit.

Horrendously blown call but Lebron had a total meltdown and the game wasn’t over. If they were down 1 or 2 points you could understand that reaction but it’s like dude really?

Beverly is more of a sports shock jock than an NBA player at this point... and he knows it. The guy is absolute trash on the court, everything he does is to create headlines. I don't doubt he has a few more "shocking" moments left in his final pathetic season. He is trying to create a career on TV... and sadly, he will probably succeed, at least for a bit, until the networks realize he's an idiot and he is unable to injure people without being criminally charged.

I don’t like the Lakers but there were calls against them that made no sense but their stupid antics that got them the T that was well deserved.

Stupid foul call on Schroder by the refs so he instead of walking away or talking to the refs he lays down on the floor like a kid in Walmart at the toy section cause his mom won’t buy him a toy.

Looking back at the play where LeBron got whacked... how many steps does he take? It looks like he takes a good 4 steps after his last dribble.

I know there is the "Euro step" where guys take 2 strides, then plant their feet and jump, the previous strides counting as "gathering" after the dribble, but man, LeBron covers a lot of ground on that play, in traffic, and he never seems to "gather", he is just running with the ball, like he is playing football.

Lebron, Ja, Luka and Harden all get an extra step per NBA ref silent rules.
