Why I turned it off when the winner was obvious. So while indeed the moment was idiotic, what does it say when you waste time watching it and expect something different?post #22894 of 272506/16/15 at 9:55pmpost #22895 of 272506/16/15 at 9:55pmpost #22896 of 272506/16/15 at 9:56pmThese guys are great. There's a BIG difference between saying the right things… and saying the rights things and meaning it.
Wasn't commenting on the MVP whatsoever. Only his sacrifice and attitude. Clearly has nothing to do with it so I don't disagree with you. But in today's media world they will not award the MVP to the losing team. Too awkward, too weird and really no one wants to see LeBron in that position… especially LeBron.post #22897 of 272506/17/15 at 2:20amWooooooooooooooooooo.
Victory hasn't quite settled in yet. Just a feeling of disbelief? Did this franchise really win a championship? The same franchise that just recently started Kwame Brown at center, had Turiaf as a backup C, overpaid Corey Maggette when Baron Davis fled for the Clippers, with fans that cheered for Biedrin's freethrows instead of wins? I don't even want to mention Richard Jefferson and how he actually had a consistent role. And that's all just within the past 3 or 4 years!
Igloo$$ deserved the FMVP. He was the most consistent, level, and aggressive player for the Warriors. Amazing defense, pushed the ball in transition when everyone else was mired in mud, and punished the defense for giving him exactly what they wanted -- open 3s and hard drives (only thing he failed at were the free throws, but all is forgiven). All series long, and even in games 2 and 3, he never shied away from the moment. Unfortunately, everyone else did. But his steadiness kept us in it, and eventually pushed the series!
Curry was really, really good. His "gravity" constantly attracted double teams. (We'll be tired of this term by the start of next season.) He played solid D, came up with steals, rebounded, and punished the Cavs whenever they switched the PnR. Those step-back 3s over TT/Mozgov forced the Cavs to continue doubling, which let DLee flourish, and later Draymond when he found his touch on the floater, in turn opening up the passing lanes and leading to that triple-double. (STOP WITH THE LOBS. TONIGHT WAS THE FIRST SUCCESSFUL LOB PASS FROM DRAYMOND. Like 1/9?? DUDE JUST STOP!) Curry had a few dumb turnovers, which he'll never extricate from his game, and poor shooting for 6 straight quarters, but his off-games were overblown. Dude still shot over 40% (like 43%?) for the series from deep, and continued to demand double teams the entire time. I mean... he shattered the 3s record by almost 50!!!!
A complete team win! Even Klay, quiet throughout the series, played his role. The threat of his shooting kept JR/Shumpert glued to him at all times, so the Dubs put him on the strong side corner. Yeah, his job was glorified space-occupier/defender/Bruce-Bowen, but there's no way in hell anyone was cheating off him. So the game plan was to let Curry pull the double (hopefully forcing weak-side rotations), force the 4v3, and let Draymond/Lee/Igloo/Livingston make the smart play. And damnit it worked! Barnes and Igloo found their stroke, Ezeli cleaned up misses because Mozgov/TT had to rotate out. It was beautiful. (That Ezeli and-1 putback dunk? HELL YEAH!)
I could go on. Barbosa and his clutch drives. LeBron even settled for a couple long 2s/3s against him on switches, though I chalk most of that up to fatigue. Livingston with the turnaround jumpers, long arms to snag a few steals, and doing an admirable job against LeBron on switches. Barnes and his O Reb, and finally the corner 3 these last 2 games. DLee, the consummate professional, stepping up in game 3 and showing the Dubs what adjustments were needed to win. Every player had a vital role. Maybe except Bogut. He must've been worn down and hurt. He looked way slower this series than he did against the frontcourts of AD, Gasol, ZBo, and Dwight. Got us here though, so rest up big fella.
So screw you Chuck! "But Ernuhh, they too small. They a jumpshooting team."

Congrats, Dub Nation! Truly well deserved. Steve Kerr has set the bar pretty high for himself in his first year on the job, haha.
Now for next season...Honestly, I think the Spurs are going to make a lot of noise, especially if they're able to sign LaMarcus Aldridge (re-signing Kawhi Leonard to a max contract is basically a foregone conclusion). LMA is only 29 and with Leonard and Popp still around, that's a championship contender for the next 5 or 6 seasons, at least, regardless of when Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, and Tim Duncan retire.
I'm calling a Cavs-Spurs 2016 NBA Finals right now. Hopefully Cleveland will be at full strength next time...post #22901 of 272506/17/15 at 5:59amQuote:
oh please.... the elephant in the Cavs room is that Tristen Thompson is a better fit (because spacing, defense AND rebounds) than Love. Hell the Cavs maybe better off trading both Kyrie and Love (sign and trade) and load up on defensive role players... they should even make a run at draymon green!post #22902 of 272506/17/15 at 6:03ampost #22903 of 272506/17/15 at 6:10am
they changed the offense to get Kevin Love out of the paint by that point. remember he'd just stand meekly at the corner and chuck up threes? before that he tried asking for the ball down low but be in the way when lebron would do his typical barrel into the paint move.post #22904 of 272506/17/15 at 6:10am
Interesting stat. No doubt that Love's skill set would've been much valued against the GSW, and even having another warm body would've been a boon to give the other guys a rest.
That said, those stats need a very big asterisk considering they were populated in the first couple rounds against low-level Eastern Conference opponents, not the Bulls, Hawks, or GSW.post #22905 of 272506/17/15 at 6:10amQuote:Forget Green...the Cavs should try to sign or trade for Olynyk himself!Originally Posted by LawrenceMD
