Proud to support teammates for life Dunleavy, LeBron, Gasol, Miller, Jones, Brooks. Once a good teammate, always a good teammate.

It is tremendous to see my guy James Jones aka the Champ show his game tonight. One of the best shooters on the planet! Great teammate!

Watching Bulls/Cavs. I admit. I miss the playoffs. Nothing better. Every possession means something. Meaningful basketball.

Strange seeing Chicago not locked in defensively. Cavs throw the bounce pocket pass on penetration as well as any team in the league.

NBA playoffs are about adjustments.Cavs not just making shots. Ball screen defense improved, spacing improved. Thompson better match 4 Bulls
