RIP Mamba

If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

Don't know how many of you listen to Pardon My Take but it's absolutely disheartening to hear those guys be somber for an entire episode. Immediately took me out of the shock of the news and into grieving.

Didn't watch, but it sounds like it was a great all-star game. Every single person on Twitter other than MIR appears to have loved the Elam Ending
:adios:

I know it was one game but I'm more pissed at everyone who thought that it was a success. They clearly would have been blowing it no matter what. Agendites.

The point of the Elam Ending is to shorten the amount of time the end of game situation is supposed to take. It took at least 20 minutes of real time for the two teams to essentially race to see who could score 2 baskets first. It absolutely didn't save time, and this was an all star game, I can't believe how long it would have taken if it were a meaningful regular season game or a playoff game.

Too many timeouts, too many and way too lengthy reviews, and really really really bad offensive basketball. The flow was garbage. It finally ending with Anthony Davis making the second of two free throws, after badly bricking the first, was just perfect.

Some of that seems easy to fix. Limit timeouts after the target score is set, free throws take away the other teams points when you are within one.

Instant replay is bad. Didn't watch last night but if they can't figure it out in 30 seconds, the original call stands. Or don't have it at all

NBA officials will also let a soft foul go in exchange for letting a team keep possession.  Then a challenge happens and they have to change it to a turnover (although maybe not now that you can challenge fouls).  I remember this happening to Chris Paul late in a playoff game and it was ridiculous.

They, at least the officials last night, are also a lot more liable to kowtow to whining players in review situations. Late in the game the referees called what seemed to be a very obvious foul. LeBron threw the biggest tantrum in all star game history and after what seemed to be a two plus minute review, after a full timeout, they reversed it.

I, for one, actually enjoyed watching all stars actually give a damn in an all-star game.

Although I don't favor it, there are arguments to be had for the Elam Ending, last night was not one of them. The entire Wichita regional of TBT was a much better watch.

This was great, although it was also a contributor to how bad the offenses were late.

it was def exciting and competitive at the end, but the issues i saw was it put a lot of pressure on the officials on what they were willing and not willing to call in a next basket wins situation.  i also thought the game would end on an exciting 3 or something, and to see it end on a free throw was very anti-climatic and ironic.

yea it was nice they tried. eventually someone will get injured and people will go crazy about it. but really playing 1 extra game when all stars can play 80, 90+ games in a season, along with workouts, practices, and pickup games, is nothing
