    Reading about it online, it's a very uncommon Southern comment. He's a commentator who knows the environment today. To hear that is just downright disgusting. Whether he meant that or not is entirely besides the point. I've heard great catchlines before from guys like Frazier and Carr. They would never utter something like that.

    Uhm, he's a 2nd piece for our team. Russ is our best player.

    Meanwhile in the west, the Warriors seem to have the toughest path.
    “It’s about winning,” Stoudemire said. “You win, you’re going to get on national TV. Simple. In Phoenix, we won — Western Conference finals three, four years, playoffs every year. We won. If you don’t win, nobody really wants to see you.”

    Man.. if Kawhi played, Spurs would beat the Warriors... This might be the Spurs best chance to win a title if Kawhi shows up...

    Could he still return? I thought he was ruled out.

    It got a little easier with the Jazz losing. If they can get past the Spurs, they only have to face one of Rockets/Thunder/Jazz. I don't think that they're too worried of the Pels or Blazers if Curry comes back. If the Jazz woulda won, they woulda had to play Spurs and the winner of Jazz/Thunder then the Rockets (assuming the Rockets get to the WCF).

    Lakers have room for two max contracts. Magic isn't stupid.. like I've been telling you before the season started. He knows PG ain't 1st option type.

    And yeah, "....cotton pickin'..." is an old southern term like gall dang or sonovabiscuit eater. It's just a work around for people who don't curse (which could be argued as intent against actual words, but that's a different gripe).

    Probably not something that should be said concerning a black player from a white guy but I doubt the guy put thought into it and just flippantly said it like the thousands of other times he probably said it.

    Warriors have a cakewalk to the WCF. Was hoping they would at least have some sort of an interesting 1st round with Curry out but Kawhi is on some ***** **** right now.

    Flash, I’m black and I’m 39. Trust me, it’s not racist or meant to be at all. Just an out of date line that was as popular as “wassup” at one time
