What a day. I never expected the Celtics to win by as much as they did or that the Suns would have an epic fail. Wow. On to the Conference Finals.

Celtics got hot.  And when you get later into last games teams sometimes do the hail mary-ish approach that either works or you get blown out.  Middleton being out for series maybe could have made the difference. But Bucks blew their chances when they had them so not feeling sorry.

As for the Suns......I don't know what was going through their heads.  That was biggest no show for a game 7 that I have ever seen.

So for the fourth straight year, there'll be no repeat champion, thanks to the Celtics' historic Game 7 win over the Bucks...

I feel bad for Chris Paul, because he really deserved to win a ring. The NBA's biggest problem is that it has far too many players who've never won any.

He's a HOF caliber type player that could very well could have won many rings. Not gonna feel too sorry for him.  He has spent many years and been on teams built to make runs for titles.  He hasn't been Kevin Garnett having his talents wasted as a Timberwolf(before trade to Boston).  I hope he gets one, but thinking of the Malones, Barkley's, Ewing's of years gone by Paul will not on top of list of players I wished won it all.  If anything it makes that club mean that much more once you enter it or have repeat memberships to the Rings club.

Is anyone really surprised a Chris Paul team gagged in the playoffs again?

I'm not a stan for CP3, but it wasn't his fault no one could hit a damn thing. Booker was brutal. Paul is obviously more of a facilitator than scorer, so if the rest of his team is garbage, he's not going to look good from a stats POV. But, I don't think even a good not great Booker and co. was beating Luka and Dinwiddie last night.

Yes, hence why I chose the wording of “team” in there.  For whatever reason this seems to be a theme where nobody can suddenly hit anything when it counts on notable teams that Chris Paul has been part of.

Gotcha. I had read it as a critique of CP3 himself. I now understand we're on the same page. :)

Missing one of their studs finally caught up to Milwaukee and Boston was able to grind them down.
Entertaining series, at least.

If Middleton was playing, it's a completely different series. They got jack shit out of Grayson Allen or whoever else was trying to play the 3.

Even stranger to me is how the Suns have never had an NBA championship with so many really good teams over so many eras.

I feel the same way, but as a former L.A. resident, since both teams can't lose, I'll have to root against the team that plays the Lakers more often in the regular season, therefore...

I’m invested in Golden State winning for several reasons:

-  I hate the Lakers from being a Pistons fan and I’m surrounded by their fans.  It feels a little strange to me that Lakers fandom persists this far north in California given how good Golden State has been. 
-  I also hate the Celtics due to being a Pistons fan.

Got me there.  All the same it was a lot of fun watching Michael Jordan not getting his way for years because of the thuggery tactics used against him and the Bulls.  Almost equally as enjoyable when the Lakers tried to buy a championship with Karl Malone and Gary Peyton but didn’t get their way either.

golden state play some awesome basketball! if palpatine was that baller i would have supported the dark side but we all know he did not have a chance against mace window. boston celtics are really a bit of a basketcase with tatum having to become a distributor to make this work. fair play to him and hes ballin out but this team was not built this way and it is all smoke and mirrors really.

It's basically Lakers v. Nets like we all expected at the start of the season, but off target by 200-400 miles on each end.
