2011 NBA Playoffs Thread
 
I know some of you here don't like basketball, but is anyone watching them at all? There's been a ton of great games already. Go Lakers!

No Jordan ruined basketball for me! I couldn't stand him and have never been able to get back into basketball again! The Lakers and Celtics were the teams I liked back in the day of Magic Johnson and Larry Bird.

You can get back to being a Lakers fan. Jordan's been retired for a decade now. Never too late to get back into it.

And then there's always the fact that my husband hates it. He goes crazy because Pro players can't shoot free throws! He can stand at the line and make everyone of them! Too bad he is much too old to take up basketball!

Pro players can't shoot free throws? Since when? Maybe the centers, but as far as the guards & forwards go, most of them are pretty good.

Not as good as my husband he never misses! But then he is just shooting free throws and not playing in a game!

Yeah, put him in a situation with thousands of fans in the arena and I'm thinking he's not hitting free throws like the pros. No offense.

But really, you should get back to watching basketball. These playoffs have been amazing so far. So many fun games.

I don't know he's a calm guy, but I think a lot of it is going from the flat out speed of the game to all of a sudden being parked at the line!

The free throws aren't nearly as bad as you're making them out to be.

You haven't heard my husband rant and rave on the subject :angry: :soapbox: It's enough to turn any one off :lol:
