    I'm a fan of Jackson. I mean I can see why they did it, in my opinion at least. Who needs a backup point guard of that quality when you've got the stamina of Russell Westbrook. But I mean the kid (or man who's 3 years older than me) was a steal at 24th pick and judging by last years performances I would have said he was a contender for Sixth Man of the Year. Plus I think he has great potential. He's an example of how a good set up and good development can sometimes trump high draft picks. Like I said, I can see why you'd trade him but to get DJ Augustin, who's performed worse this season than last, and Kyle Singler, who I think is essentially a trick shooter and not much more, is a step backwards in my opinion. I'm no expert though so maybe I'm not seeing something that's obvious

    Yeah I agree with pretty much what you said. Plus I loved it last season when they played small with Westbrook, Reggie, Fisher, KD on the floor.

    But like you said was probably designed to sure up weaknesses, and all the news outlets are praising it so here's hoping it works.

    I know its not NBA, but my home team the NZ Breakers (of the ANBL), just swept the playoffs and took their 4th championship in 5 seasons today.

    Was an excellent game going right down to the wire, score even, with 1.2 on the clock, inbound Breakers ball at the half court (after a timeout), our center (yes center lol) swept round a pick, collected the inbound pass just inside the 3 point arc, spun while elevating putting up a rainbow shot... Time expired with the ball in the air... Swish...

    Crowd went nuts, and the dude got mugged by everyone lol.

    I just got home from it, still amped up over the win.

    That's most likely the reasoning behind it. I'm more of philosophy of creating more strengths than covering up weaknesses. That doesn't really seem to work in the NBA though.

    Excellent stuff, mate. Any chance of a link on Youtube? The NBA has some great game endings but I find that non-NBA games tend to have the best.

    It was on Sky Sports? Jesus, the Irish Cup finals aren't even in English :/

    Ricky Rubio is having a rough time lately.

    No it's not up here. Sky Sports only show the occasional British Basketball League game up here but you can get them for free on Eurosport so there's not much point.

    Do Sky show semi-finals or any lower games as well?

    Yeah as far as I know Sky covers all the regular season and of course playoffs. Its not like NBA though, the season is only 28 games long. Playoff's is a maximum of 6.

    Well for some. In Ireland we used to get the Irish Cup semis and final on TV and before that when basketball was really big I think there might have been much more. This year the only way to watch the semi-finals was through a stream from a guy who has a Twitter basketball fan page. He was recording it on his phone and either the streaming service or the local internet was poor so you basically got a bit of audio and no video.

    The final was on TV but it was on the Irish speaking channel and the vast majority of fluent Irish speakers don't like basketball. Plus it was a terrible game, Irish basketball needs all the help it can get.

    I'm really happy for Cleveland, they deserve the title. Curry and the Warriors were on another level in the regular season but they didn't show their best in the playoffs.

    Kyrie is incredible, I love the dribbling skill and those sharp crossovers. He played very well last night, especially that clutch 3 pointer at the end.
