When Roy Hibbert goes for 30 and 30 tonight, just remember why.
On Wednesday’s live episode of The Starters, the guys discuss last night’s two blowouts: Spurs/Blazers and Heat/Nets, the Golden State Warriors decision to fire Mark Jackson, and Kevin Durant’s emotional MVP acceptance speech. All that, plus Crossfire, and some inspirational words for struggling Pacers big man Roy Hibbert.
Shoutout: Just because we’ve come to expect 32 and nine from Tony Parker like it’s no big deal, shoutout to Aron Baynes for throwing down a nice 10 points and seven rebounds in 15 minutes of playing time. Big dude even got a standing ovation for his work in the second quarter, so if you don’t know who he is, you best get familiar.
Not so much: After the Greatest First Round Ever™, all four Game 1s of round two have been basically over by the start of the fourth quarter. Yeah, Indiana only lost by six, but that’s because they decided to start hitting threes after the game was decided. Take me back, I wanna go back.
Teary: If you haven’t yet watched Kevin Durant’s MVP speech, take a look. Might want a Kleenex though.
Shoutout to moms everywhere. Moms are the best.
