Correct, gettin' old LOL.

Boy I tell you this eastern conference in the NBA is bad! I mean really bad! Even though they were swepted it looks like the number 7 seed pacers are gonna be he ones that gave the cavs the best series if you can believe that. Lol the NBA should be ashamed of themselves for putting out this playoff product. And it's an easy fix, top 16 seeds make the playoffs regardless of conference. Which to put it in perspective would have made the celtics and cavs the 4 & 5 seed respectively this year. I think that would have made for some more competitive series's. And before some eastern conference slupers start there propaganda about the west being weak to keep in mind had Kawi Leonard not been hurt in game one the west finals would be a tied series right now going into tonight's game and would very much a competitive series that could go either way . The NBA Needs to make some changes to make the playoffs watchable again.

Go Canes!

Going to be a fun finals

If Golden State doesnt win, it will be worse than their total gag job last season, which was epic.

NicKane

I agree go. They collapsed last year and that colapsed started with greens swipe at lebrons balls. Lol how stupid can you be a win away from the title and you do that to get suspended game five at home. And of course the rest is history as lebron goes off In that game because golden states best defender and two way player is next door sitting in a suit in the A's stadium watching the game. But back to what you said go, when you basically keep though whole 73 win team intact and add arguably the best player in the game, as long as you play up to potential you should beat anybody including the cavs without a problem. Shoot golden state actually got better at the one postition they were weak at last year and lost the most players from in the offseason and that's center. McGee has been balling for them.

Good point.

That series was rigged.

jcane

Bottom of 5th, the U coming to bat after just having given up the tying run, knotted at 2. Huge game, as last game pre ACC tnmt, and a win is the only way to be sure of completing the season with a winning record vs div 1 (old school description). This is a requirement to even be considered for regional selection, aside from winning the conference tnmt.

jcane

Canes go down. Top of 6th still at 2s. New pitcher up for the U. Season may be on the line.

jcane

2-2 heading to the 7th. U baserunner nailed at the plate by CFer in the 6th.

NativeCane

Keep it coming jcane....

jcane

Bottom of 10th, u down 5-2, but runners on 2nd and 3rd with no outs. Need some lightning...

jcane

One down, still same runners on.

jcane

Single to left!! Two runs in. Down by 1, one out and top hr hitter on team, Romy, up.

jcane

Romy Ks. Last chance time...

jcane

Walk. Two runners now on. Double likely wins it...rally cap???

jcane

Michaelangeli connects.....walkoff HR!!!!! CANES WIN!!!! Post season streak may still be alive! Wow. What a 10th?!!

NativeCane

Canes Win!!!

jcane you are the man!!!

jcane

I'm gonna guess 8-9 acc teams go to regionals. 9 might be Duke, but they're iffy with a sub 500 acc record. 8th in acc actually is fsu, at 500 in conference and a game behind the U. Problem for the U this year was out of ACC they couldn't win the games they normally would have. Still,I expect an invite. I'd live to see a nice acc tnmt showing, but I'm not sure how much this team teally has in it. Night all...

jcane

Thx, Native. Hate to think the updates were just me talking to myself..

NativeCane

jcane I have talked to myself many times on this blog but I never catch the drift......
I do wanna say Thanks bud, I am in Canes purgatory here in West Central F.L.A.....hard to catch a Baseball game without an 8 hr. Round trip....

Mark from Atlanta

Completely off topic. ...but watching the 30 for 30...Vinny T....had some serious wheels and escapabilty...he did cost us the Fiesta bowl. ..don't know why he never ran in that game. ..watching him take a 6 or 7 step drop he was very fast to his spot. ..
Oh well, apologies for bringing up bad memories of what should have been. ..just watched it and was impressed.
4 ints...I won't comment.
God bless you and Go Canes!

Terrance Sullivan

Thanks JCane you are not talking to yourself. Those of us that care about The Whole Canes Athletic Program appreciates the updates. I think if we win one ACC tournament game we are definitely in. Keep the streak alive and make it Year #45 in a row. Go Canes. Way to sweep the Hokies.

Go Canes!

The numbers are staggering:

Power 5 conferences reported combined total of $2.3 billion in revenue for FY16 (that's more than double from FY12):

Terrance Sullivan

To Second Native comment their will be times when you are a one man band on here lol. But keep playing the hits brother lol and Go Canes!

Herbieibis

Be glad when NBA is over with. Tired of ESPN and Lebron interviews. Worst sport to watch. Can't wait for college football.

Dude

^^^ Amen. I hate basketball.

86Cane

JCane... Great job on the game call! And you had a positive outcome, what more can you ask for?

86Cane

Seems everyone agrees on NBA as being worst to watch. I give them 3 to 5 years.

CoCane

The NBA is a strong 2nd behind the NFL as the most watched major sport. The NBA is locked in...

Sorry baseball, soccer and hockey fans

CoCane

^^^ In the U.S.

Terrance Sullivan

Facts CoCane.

The most dynastic professional sport of them all. In the last THIRTY years:

Los Angeles Lakers (7 titles)
Chicago Bulls (6 titles)
San Antonio Spurs (5 titles)
Miami Heat (3 titles)
Detroit Pistons (3 titles)
Boston Celtics (2 titles)
Houston Rockets (2 titles)
Cleveland Cavaliers (1 title)
Dallas Mavericks (1 title)
Golden State Warriors (1 title)

Just 10 teams in thirty years. And like Michael going to six out of seven NBA title series, Lebron has now on his way to his seventh consecutive NBA final.

16 NFL teams have won a title in the same time period. 17 MLB teams during the same.

CaneRock

LOL...people kill me with this rigged talk. Besides Tim Donaghy, what other corruption has there been in the NBA?

Yet in beisbol, you've had fixed games (1919 Black Sox Scandal)...Pete Rose...corked bats...steroids.

In the NFL, you've had espionage..."Deflategate"...and this is just one team LOL.

And don't get me started on futbol.

The NBA's the least corrupt organization out there.

jcane

86... I knew they'd come back the whole time! The key was that you didn't come on to say you had this given your luck lately...

UMike

Guess who's son graduated today!!!

Not bad ideas but keep in mind there have been many star player injuries.

Nba defense is so elite, if you dont have a guy to get his own bucket or draw a double team, you WILL NOT SCORE.

Players these days have a lil to9 much front runner in them and can be easily demoralized.

Add to this the prolific percentages from the 3 point line (especially from the power forwards), and a team can find themselves buried by 25 in no time.

The rise of aau and free agent youth basketball along with the shortening of college careers has lead to an underdevelopment of the skills necessary to manufacture offense without one or more alpha dog scorers.

I watched the finals last year and watched the refs control the outcomes. Okay, maybe they didnt... then its the worst officiated sport in all of sport and is unbearable to watch.

Congrats UMike.

CaneRock

Guess who's son graduated today!!!

Posted by: UMike | May 20, 2017 at 11:13 PM

Congratulations to you two UMike, so happy for y'all. I'm right behind you, mine's graduates this week. Last day of school was this past week, don't know if the emotions of graduation will top that, I'll bring a box of Kleenex just in case LOL.

Terrance Sullivan

Congratulations to your son and U UMike!

BigWindyCane1

John Salley flat out told me on the set of Bad Boys that he thought the 1993 NBA draft was rigged.

Go Canes!

Ariz: Can confirm that all of Miami's freshmen slated to enroll today are OFFICIALLY qualified and in -- that includes Jeff Thomas. #Canes

Tha was the draft where orlando got the number 1 pick for the second year in a row and drafted Webber and traded him for penny right? You were in the movie Bad Boys tonycane? One of my all time favorite movies! The sequel not so much but the original is a classic.

Aerocane

Hi Canespace friends
I am so excited for 2017 - can't wait for the season!!
Can't wait to see Thomas and Richards with Cager as our 3 set receivers!
And, our defense is going to be better than amazing!
And, wow, lingard and Davis are going to be 2 awesome freshmen in '18!

PS as you can tell I'm in a good mood and really positive!
PSS for those who know me and my daughter, she graduated Rollins magna cum laude with honors - double major! Year off then law school!

jcane

Tues 11 am canes open acc tnmt with ga tech. Thurs vs wake forest. Winning one should generally guarantee a bid at least in this un hurricane like baseball season.

Terrance Sullivan

CaneRock

Congragulations to You & Your Daughter Aerocane.

Terrance Sullivan

All pretty good choices though
Go Canes!!

KYcane

Aero

Great news about your daughter

UMIKE

Congratulations to you on your son's graduation

Both are great young people!

TonyCane

I worked on it as a production assistant. Very interesting shoot. It was close to being cancelled two weeks in. There were some production issues (like studio lights triggering a fire alarm and triggering the sprinkler system, flooding the Al Capone suite at the Biltmore Hotel) and growing pains for Michael Bay.

Aerocane

UMike - I missed that - sorry
Congrats on your son's graduation! It's that time of year!

Aerocane

Thanks KYCane!!

UMike

Thanks guys!! And aero congrats as well. Great times

TruCane81

CR, I know you just saw that spin move Lebron did.

Most people would break their leg in a spiral fracture trying to do that.

CaneRock

Celtics win, Chauncey strikes back.

Terrance Sullivan

Lol CR!
