Who didn't log out of their sock?
It's a me!
that's mario's line!
Sorry folks. Traveling this week. Trying to find time to get the sims in, but five flights in five days is going to kill a lot of my time this week.
(1) The Lando System (3) vs. (5) Game, Blouses (2)
Game 6: The Lando System at Game, Blouses
Julius Erving couldn't be contained. The Lando System's offense couldn't be stopped. and Game, Blouses ran out of gas.
And so, The Lando System is heading to the Finals, while Game, Blouses is just heading home.
Lead by Erving, who scored 31 points on 13-for-21 shooting and added 6 steals and 7 rebounds, the Lando System shot 51.1% from the field and 60% from three as they simply torched Game, Blouses. No single player hit more than one three, for the Lando System, however, in that output.
Larry Bird added 20 points, and Kevin McHale (13 points, 8 rebounds) and Artis Gilmore (14 points, 9 rebounds) held firm in the paint, while Chris Paul added 9 points and 11 assists.
Michael Jordan lead the way for Game, Blouses with 14 points, 10 assists, and 5 rebounds, and Carmelo Anthony added 15 points.
Game, Blouses were held to just one field goal for the final 7 minutes of the first half, as the Lando System used a 21-5 run to end the second quarter to all but book their ticket to the Finals at half time.
Final Score: The Lando System 117, Game, Blouses 98
Full Box Score
The Lando System wins the Series 4-2.
(2) God's Squad (3) vs. (6)SEXY TRAIN (2)
Game 6: God's Squad at SEXY TRAIN
Suffocating Defense from SEXY TRAIN or just poor shooting from God's Squad?
Either way, the result is the same: a Game Seven.
God's Squad shot just 39.3% from the field, and hit just 1 of their 12 attempts from downtown. They had almost as many turnovers (19) as assists (20).
Dwayne Wade made just 9 of his 23 attempts, on his way to 20 points, and Kevin Garnett made just 5 of his 12, on his way to 12. Michael Jordan shot the poorest of all of God's Squad, making just 3 of 15 attempts.
Only Shaquille O'Neal had an effective offensive night for God's Squad, scoring 22 points on 10-for-18 shooting, and grabbing 12 rebounds.
Meanwhile, LeBron James lead a masterful offensive effort for SEXY TRAIN, dishing out 15 assists to go with his 9 points and 9 rebounds. David Robinson lead the scoring effort with 19 points, and Tony Parker and George Gervin added 14 each, while Kawhi Leonard did a little bit of everything with 16 points, 7 rebounds, 6 assists, and 5 steals. That lead to 51.2% shooting from the field for SEXY TRAIN, including 56% on two-point attempts.
Final Score: SEXY TRAIN 96 God's Squad 77

With Luigi waiting in the Finals ... any changes for Game 7 from either PRENNTACULAR or LloydChristmas?

SG: Dwyane Wade (48), Ray Allen (0)

(2) God's Squad (3) vs. (6)SEXY TRAIN (3)
Game 7: SEXY TRAIN at God's Squad
Down ten to start the fourth, it looked as if the "Release the Shaqen" strategy might not pan out for God's Squad. But a 9-0 run to start the quarter pulled them within a single point just two minutes into the fourth. Two minutes later, and God's Squad had taken the lead, and looked to be grabbing control of the game.
That control, however, was just a facade, as neither team would lead by more than a single point for the final 9 minutes of the game.
Back and forth they went, with David Robinson taking a sweet pass from LeBron James with 29 seconds left, and sinking the baseline shot to put his team up 100-99.
On the other end of the court, LeBron James took a shot to give his team back the lead, but Tim Duncan got his 6th block of the game to keep his team ahead.
Back the other way we went, where James had a chance to ice the game with free throws, but missed both, leaving it a one point game.
Shaquille O'Neal got free inside and had a runner at the buzzer, but Duncan got his 7th block of the game, rejecting O'Neal's game winner and locking up a place in the Finals.
Duncan's two game-sealing blocks highlighted a night to remember for him. To his 7 blocks he added 24 points, 14 rebounds (5 on the offensive glass), 8 assists, and 3 steals. James added 24 points, Kawhi Leonard 16 points, and Dennis Rodman grabbed 12 rebounds.
For God's Squad, older Shaq scored 24 points and grabbed 11 rebounds, and younger Shaq added 17 points and 11 rebounds. James had 25 points, 6 rebounds, and 6 assists.
The two teams shot remarkably similar from the floor - 47.7% for God's squad and 47.0% for SEXY TRAIN - but SEXY TRAIN was 4-for-8 from three, and God's Squad was 0-for-5.
Final Score: SEXY TRAIN 100, God's Squad 99
Full Box Score
SEXY TRAIN wins the Series 4-3.
And so we bid adieu to Point Given and LloydChristmas. Well done, to both of you.
But the Finals belong to Luigi and PRENNTACULAR. Last chance to make changes to your roster. Post those and your game 1 lineups, please.
Wait so do I celebrate this or...?
i think the important thing is that even in a tight game 7 your team still somehow found four minutes for anthony bennett.

Really wish I had time/energy to do a Fake Bill Simmons breakdown. I suppose I could channel The Ringer and just do like three paragraphs of nothing and call it an article, though I'd have to have a strong opinion on KD to Golden State for it to count.
(1) The Lando System vs. (6) SEXY TRAIN
Game 1: SEXY TRAIN at The Lando System
Larry Bird and LeBron James put on an individual duel for the ages.
Bird edged James, just barely, and his team did, too, giving first blood to the Lando System.
Bird scored 25 points and added 10 assists and 7 rebounds. James scored 23, with 6 of those cming in the game's final 46 seconds as he single-handily tried to keep his team in it.
But, it was not meant to be, as the Lando System barely kept SEXY TRAIN in the station. The Lando System never lead by more than six in the fourth quarter, but SEXY TRAIN, despite their best efforts, could never take the lead or even force a tie.
The Lando System got 19 points from Chris Paul, 18 from Kevin McHale, 15 from Oscar Robertson, and 11 points and 13 rebounds from Julius Erving.
SEXY TRAIN got 19 points from George Gervin, 18 from David Robinson, and 14 points, 10 rebounds from Tim Duncan.
Stat of the night: Kevin Love taking 10 shots in just 13 minutes of game time.
Final Score: The Lando System 107, SEXY TRAIN 103

(1) The Lando System (1) vs. (6) SEXY TRAIN (0)
Game 2: SEXY TRAIN at The Lando System
Game two is all about adjustments in a championship series.
SEXY TRAIN made adjustments - especially halftime adjustments - and they took the second game as a result.
LeBron James and Tim Duncan lead the attack-minded offense. James did a bit of everything with 29 points, 9 rebounds, 7 assists, 2 blocks, and 2 steals. Duncan provided the muscle inside with 19 points and 14 rebounds.
The team as a whole had an aggressive attitude on the night, getting to the free-throw line 46 times - literally, taking a shot nearly every minute!
But, it was the halftime adjustments that really tilted this one. SEXY TRAIN entered the third quarter trailing by three. They erased that and took the lead just 35 seconds into the second half, and later used 11-2 and 7-0 runs in the half to outscore the Lando System 41-23 in the quarter and take a 15-point lead into the fourth quarter.
SEXY TRAIN also got 20 points and 8 rebounds from Kawhi Leonard and 22 points from George Gervin.
The Lando System, meanwhile, will wonder how they lost despite shooting 50% from the field Double-Doubles from Julius Erving (22 points, 11 rebounds) and Larry Bird (18 points, 10 rebounds, 8 assists) were somewhat hamstrung by a poor night from Chris Paul.
James' aggressive attacking offense put Paul in foul trouble all night. Paul had two fouls less than six minutes into the game, and picked up his fifth early in the fourth, before fouling at late in the game. In all, Paul was limited to just 4 points and just 28 minutes.
Final Score: SEXY TRAIN 112, The Lando System 107
Full Box Score
The Series is tied at 1 each. Will Luigi make any lineup adjustments? Will PRENNTACULAR? Will xblackout give us Fake Bill Simmons? Or will tom at least give us Fake Shea Serrano?

Game 3: The Lando System at SEXY TRAIN
After blowing a 4-point lead in the final 20 seconds and seeing Julius Erving tie the game with a dagger three at the buzzer to end regulation, it seemed as if SEXY TRAIN might get derailed in their quest to grab a lead in the series.
The Lando System scored first in overtime, but SEXY TRAIN clamped down from there, scoring the next thirteen points to put a loss far in the rear view mirror.
Beast mode from David Robinson helped to right the ship and guide them to victory. The Admiral scored 23 points, grabbed 19 rebounds (5 of them on the offensive glass), and went 9-for-9 from the charity stripe. That lead SEXY TRAIN to a 60-45 edge on the glass, a 15-8 edge on the offensive glass, and a 43-10 advantage in free throws. That last advantage they took full advantage of, shooting a remarkable 40-for-43 from the stripe.
LeBron James added a masterful 24 point, 9 rebounds, 9 assist effort, Tim Duncan chipped in 23 points, 9 rebounds, and 8 assists, and Kawhi Leonard scored 20.
Dr J had a game-high 28 points for the Lando System, and added 9 rebounds. Larry Bird and Kevin McHale each scored 17, and Anthony Davis had 14 off the bench.
Final Score: SEXY TRAIN 121, The Lando System 111 (OT)
