I can agree with all that, to each their own.

I just don't see how someone could go without food or water all day and play a basketball game in the evening. I know how weak/sick I sometimes feel when I have to fast before giving blood for a physical, and that allows water. And they're use to a lot more calories and have an even faster metabolism than me. But yes, some seem to do it just fine

People deliberately fast all the time for a variety of reasons. If you made a concerted effort to try intermittent fasting and did it consistently for a while, you might be surprised how quickly your body is able to cope/adapt. For some people it's way more of a mental thing than a physical one, but YMMV.

Anyway, can we talk about how Draymond Green is one of the best defenders in the league, if not the best, period?

I can understand the not eating aspect of fasting. But deliberately dehydrating yourself doesn't seem like the best way to reach peak physical performance.

I don't know if Nikola Jokic's asshole has been sewn shut, but Denver just keeps feeding him, and feeding him, and feeding him.

Fun playoffs so far.

Given the lack of Denver's depth, coupled with injuries, I'm sold on the argument Joker deserves the MVP again, instead of Embid or Giannis, and that's probably how it's going to pan out anyway. If you go by best player on the best team, Booker probably belonged in the conversation, but the past few years seem to be hyper focused on individual advanced stats, but regardless, Denver would have likely missed the playoffs altogether had Jokic not played at the level he did.

I'd also argue that Nugs roster would have otherwise been an easy sweep for the Ws, but Jokic essentially singlehandedly kept that series competitive and way closer for comfort, and I'm relieved the Ws were able to semi-contain him to the extent they did.Not sure if these small lineups are going to work in future series though, and Kuminga is probably going to have to play a lot more at a high level since the team just doesn't have a ton of height and Draymond can't guard everyone all the time, and Iggy looks pretty old.

Crossing my fingers that the Griz/Wolves either goes 7 or somehow MN upsets them. Ja is a major problem and even the Ws death lineup may not be enough to contain him in a shootout, given his supporting cast.

PHX (assuming they close is it out) feels like such a more preferable matchup, but Boston looks like the best team in the NBA right now and I don't the Ws can stop Tatum/Jaylen Brown.

Also, Jordon Poole should've won MIP instead of Ja, but oh well.

Embiid has to sit out at least 5 days for concussion protocol, could be longer. Miami in 6.

I'd say any team that shoots better than 7/38 on 3s stands a decent chance.

Sucks to not be going back to SF up 2-0, but the series hardly looks like it's over.

Al Horford is balling out tonight, with his old ass self. I looked it up and he's the 17th oldest player in the NBA currently. But when you consider that LeBron is the 4th oldest, it's not quite as impressive.

I think Golden State closes out the series comfortably tonight

Boston and Milwaukee should be epic, but I think the champs close it out tonight as well

Philly probably would've been better keeping Curry and Drummond and trying to move Simmons in the offseason, instead of picking up fat washed up Harden

I'd love to see Phoenix lose to Dallas but I wouldn't count on it.

I think Memphis will force a game 7 but agree that Milwaukee will win tonight

I think Harden has played hurt all year, but getting rid of Simmons is addition by subtraction. The Nets need to get rid of both him and Kyrie to ever sniff a championship. Also the 76ers screwed up by choosing Simmons over Jimmy Butler. Also they need to get a new coach because Doc Rivers isn't it.

I think Harden is just old. He can't absorb contact like he used to. Before the trade, when Philly didn't have Harden yet, and they didn't have Simmons because he was sitting out, that's when Philly was at it's best this year. Everything revolving around Embiid, where guys like Maxey and Harris and Thybulle and Curry could just do their thing. Maybe they will figure it out next year, but Daryl Morey is an idiot so probably not.

That and if the refs stop clearly favoring the warriors

Still waiting on Draymond to get called just once for his incredibly blatant moving screen where he just shoves a guy he's screening from the 3 point line to under the basket. I mean JFC
