The Cavaliers and the Bulls seem to be as evenly-matched as possible in their playoff matchup, and it’s going to take incredible, somewhat miraculous shots like these to propel one team to get past the other as we get deeper into this second-round series.
Derrick Rose found a way to bank home a three-point shot at the Game 3 buzzer, and lifted his Bulls to a 99-96 victory which gave Chicago a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series.
James Harden says Matt Barnes’ trash talk towards his mom was ‘disrespectful’
“The easy route was to go and say Steph. That’s easy,” Jackson said on Dan Le Batard’s ESPN Radio Show. “I’m not saying he wasn’t worthy. I’m not even saying he didn’t deserve it. I just had to make a pick.
“I love him. I’m happy for him. I’m proud of him. Tremendous speech. Tremendous accomplishment. I wish him nothing but the very best and we move on.”
Again, this is only relevant because of the prior relationship that exists.
But regardless of Jackson’s intentions, or whether or not he truly believes Harden over Curry is the better MVP choice (as I do), the comments will be viewed as sour grapes by plenty of outside observers.
