The super-slow-mo of Adebayo's block on Tatum is amazing.

(the sound, however, is nightmare fuel)

TV execs must be having nightmares about a possible Heat-Nuggets title round.

That would not be a ratings monster.

Neither would Celtics-Nuggets. But LeBron and the Lakers going against his old Miami team would generate some buzz.

I suppose that LA and Boston are 2 of the larger markets but for the true BB fan nothing has been better this playoff year than watching the rise of Murray, The Joker, Butler and Bam, and the "Bitch Assed White Boy". Bring on the Heat-Nuggets series.

Another great thing about this year's playoffs is that the bubble has made a great impact on eliminating the normal garbage home bias of the officiating that always makes a larger impact on the outcome than players do.
