A good run for the Celtics this year. Restored to their proper place after last year's meltdown. Big series win against the Raptors in 7 games where they were firing on all cylinders. They met their match in the Eastern Conference Finals though. A Heat team brimming with confidence after running through their bracket in the division carried on their successful ways.
How entertaining was this squad? Heart attack kids left it all on the floor every game but it seemed clear that Lebron and Co. had them outclassed. Nothing to hang your head on, Lebron, AD and Co. looks to have the league outclassed this playoffs.So without further adieu let's get into our grading of Nugget individuals for this series. Damn was that an entertaining run.
Biggest Reach: Maryland Terrapins at #11. Look – I love this team! They defeated Indiana in the finals (after Indy took out the perennially-hated Duke along the way to the Final Four). I thought Chris Wilcox (aka, Weezy) was gonna be this millennium’s Shawn Kemp! Juan Dixon was clutch in the tourney (and drafted by the Raps along w/ Lonny Baxter!) But those jerseys? I dunno, Nick...
Yo we go all in on the NBA Restart 2020 with our panel of hoops zealots! Rick Kang and Garth Jackson, 2 Canadian cats, so we definitely talkin' Raptors! A wide ranging discussion on the NBA's return, who's gonna make the playoffs, and what teams need who to step up! Of course peppered with random banter and basketball nuggets for ya'll fiends!
"The premise: in standard fantasy draft format, you pick b-ball shoes instead of players—albeit without a season, playoffs or any other element of fantasy sports other than the “fantasy” or “draft” parts. Because we all love the game—but we also care deeply about the game within the game: the kicks, the trash talk, the culture, the stories, and of course, “sauce” (on- and off-court). And how else are you gonna keep yourself occupied socially isolating for months on end?"
