    Are our freshmen on campus? Read an OWH article saying Creighton's three man class has been on campus since the first week of June for summer workouts. Anybody know about our guys?

    NBA Playoffs

    Starting a thread for anyone who wants to discuss the NBA playoffs. Lots of interesting matchups and storylines (feel free to move this thread to its appropriate place). EAST (1) Raptors v. (8) Wizards (4) Cavs v. (5) Pacers (3) 76ers v. (6) Heat (2) Celtics v. (7) Bucks WEST (1) Rockets v. (8) T-Wolves (4) Thunder v. (5) Jazz (3) Blazers v. (6) Pelicans (2) Warriors v. (7) Spurs - Sucks for the Raptors to have such a great season and still more than likely draw the Cavs in the conference semis - Celtics are hurting. The teams on their side of the bracket are very happy. - T-Wolves were a season away from tying the Clippers for longest playoff drought in NBA. They have a lot talent and Houston doesnt always perform the best in the post season. - Spurs are always a tough matchup and the Warriors are without Curry and are in a bit of a funk. Maybe the Spurs can pull a huge upset in the first round. Predictions ECF: Cavs over 76ers in 6 WCF: Warriors over Rockets in 5 NBA: Warriors over Cavs in 7

    Lets just both agree to let this topic die.

    Also, KD i believe can opt out and sign elsewhere. I doubt it will happen (very few teams will have the money to sign him) but its an interesting dynamic to think about. He seems to care a lot of what others think and now that he has a couple rings and finals MVP to ease his mind maybe he wants to go else where and prove something on a not so stacked team. I always wanted to see him go home to Washington and team up with John Wall and Bradley Beal.

    NBA Playoffs

    Should be an exciting off season. Aside from the Lebron Sweepstakes, it will be interesting to see what Boston does. I have read alot about the possibility of trading Kyrie. The C's organization seems to be pleased with the gaurd play they got from their young guns and are interested in swapping Kyrie for a star F or C (rumors).

    Golden State is relentless. They intend on heavily pursuing Anthony Davis too.

    He was in a position to to accomplish those things you speak of when OKC was up 3-1 against the Warriors lol

    Rivalry

    Like pointed out earlier, growing up in north Omaha I have a lot of ties to Creighton. So i do not hate them. However, my family is Husker everything so thats who i grew up cheering for.

    NBA Playoffs

    Series is tied 2-2 if KD isnt a Warrior, in my hypothetical opinion.

    NBA Playoffs

    In my opinion, college hoops is 10x harder to watch and a much uglier game. Aside from Nebrasketball and March Madness, i watch zero. But can watch NBA all day. But to each his own.

    Tbh the real thing that led to the Warriors getting KD was Stephs injuries early on in his career. If he isnt banged up early on hes prob getting paid much more during that time and they dont have the cap space to sign KD.

    NBA Playoffs

    Let me clarify, i do not like KD as a competitor/athlete. Big fan of his MVP speech (youtube it if you havent seen it) from a few years back. And i know he did alot of charitable stuff back in OKC, especially during that disastrous tornado. Im sure he is a fine human being, but as an NBA fan and consumer I do not like KD the basketball player. That is all my dislike applies to.

    NBA Playoffs

    Nope. I dislike the second best basketball player in the world for joining the best NBA team to ever play the game (record wise), when he was up 3-1 against that same team but pissed it down his leg just a few months prior. That is all.

    NBA Playoffs

    For me, the issue isnt that KD left but who he joined. He joined the team that put together the best regular season in NBA history. Not only that, but the team that he and his own team blew a 3-1 lead against. And in that blown series, KD absolutely crumbled under the pressure. From a competitive stand point that just tells you so much about him in my opinion. That is why I dont like him.

    But yall hate Andrew White for leaving Nebraska and going to Syracuse to play for a better team/program.

    Schedule

    Looks like we will have a schedule where 18-14 could get us in the tourney like Bama, Texas, etc last year.

    JR put too much henny in his gatorade bottle at half time or something

    NBA Playoffs

    Hot take from somebody who probably doesnt watch a lot of NBA. Two of the last 4 teams (Boston and GS) left in the playoffs play GREAT team bball. And alot of you on here cried and complained all season about collegiate reffing so lets not act like its just an NBA problem. Lastly, have you seen LeBrons teammates?? They dont make clutch plays and apparently dont even know the score in gm 1 of the NBA finals. Cant blame him for not trusting them.

    Jr was too lit lol. "I thought we were up 1"

    NBA Playoffs

    I dont think that will be the case next year. Philly is going to be a Top 5 team in the NBA next year and the Celtics, if they are healthy, have a realistic chance to be the best team in the NBA.

    18-19 depth

    I think it will be interesting to see how the scoring averages out. 4 different guys that can put up 15-20 any given night. If I am Miles, I am preaching team ball over and over and over. Whats good for the team is good for the individual. Dont worry about your averages just focus on your weaknesses and the scouts will find you.

    Mixed Blessing? Lunchtime musing

    They accomplished nothing in reality. Banners do not get hung for 22 wins and top 4 finishes. They get hung for conference championships and tournament appeareances/deep runs. This team should still feel they have PLENTY to prove.
