Yeah the team has had a string of bad luck when it comes to injuries like Westbrook going down the right before the playoffs the same year they dealt Harden then Durant but I do think they need a change.
And them winning 45 games this year is pretty much all on Wetsbrook, any coach can say give it to Russy and let him go nuts.
Cavs went crazy for Marions dunk. I guess it is his last dunk of his career (regular season-wise)?
What an awesome moment. Incredible turnaround in team chemistry...remember last year when waiters and Irving literally had to deny that they got into a fistfight?
Didn't realize Marion is definitely retiring. Hell of an underrated player, has a shot at the hof.
^ I just read that Westgate Super in Vegas has CLE at 9-4, highest favorite to win with GSW at 5-2. Ummmm…. what? Regardless of GSW, the Cavs definitely aren't winning. Does anyone really believe that? Srsly.
I can see the Cavs winning it all since they can ramp it up when needed but they wouldn't be my choice.
What sucks is that Hawks still gets no respect.
Completely. Yes of course the Cavs have a shot and they have been playing very well, but if I'm putting money on it, no way. The fact that a decent team + a huge dose of LeBron nut-hugging can put them as favorites while, as you've pointed out, a stacked and well-balanced team like the Hawks gets almost zero attention is just stoooopid.
