Kinda glad GS won. I think they stand a better chance against Lebron. He must be defeated.

The team was in the same position in 2012, on the cusp of glory that has never materialized. I do not see much improvement in the decision making or gameplan in all these years. In the fourth quarter everything goes out the window unless the team manages to keep the offensive momentum. But if they lose the momentum, it is countless iso plays and bone-headed 3pt attempts by both Durant and Westbrook.

OKC with their dreaded TWO KOBES offense at the end of quarters/crunch time did them in.

I guess you haven't seen the 30 for 30 Believeland...

I'm looking forward to the Finals. If everyone avoids injury, it should be a good series.

Disagree with your first point but I echo the rest of your sentiments.

I'm obviously excited for the finals. Will be really interesting to see what the matchups look like. Mozgov has been a non-factor in the playoffs whereas last year he played a huge role in the finals. Unlike the dregs CLE has been beating up on in its playoff run, Warriors have enough scorers to make it really tough to play Irving, Love and JR Smith together. I suspect we see more Shumpert/D'vadova to try and check Steph. Dray dominated Love in the regular season series so hopefully for the Warriors he gets his game back and wins the matchup again. I don't think Lebron can do it alone although he came pretty close last year.

The story will go that CLE will finally win their championship and Lebron vs GSW will be 1-1 in the back to back finals. Another blip in NBA history that we will hear about in 20 some years down the road.

If they had just one Kobe offense they would have won just like how lakers beat the celtics.

Tired of steph's antics and the entire #dubnation garbage on instagram and comparisons to kobe and jordan. On the contrary I sort of feel sorry for Lebron and the city of Cleveland.

OKC actually could just let KD walk, trade ibaka (plus assets) for blake griffin, and actually be just as good with a offense based around westbrook running pick and rolls with adams and griffin (doing old school amare staudomire dunks off the roll like the 2004-2010 suns).

or they could just trade ibaka and assets for griffin and try to do the superteam (KD,WB, Blake, Adams) thing.

either way the warriors did win more games in the regular season than the bulls or lakers ever did. celtics present and future is bright (playoffs!), and the lakers ....well they have Jim Buss leading all basketball decisions (worst lakers records ever for the last two years)... good luck with that!

like I said if they had Kobe offense thunder would have won but lmao @ you not being able to keep kobe or lakers outcha mouth lawrence

or they could buy a championship super team like how the celtics did when they got garnett and allen forming the original big 3 which served as the model for miami later on, though we all know that was only good for one unfortunately

Got no dog in the fight but I just really do not want to see Green mean muggin every single play he makes.

StephGods cool but feels like dudes become too cocky for his own good like Green at times.

Klays pretty much the only players I like in the team similar to Ray Allen being the only player I liked in Bostons last chip and Miamis few runs.

I just hope for a much better series with less blowouts.

I don't care. I used to support Bron because of his "quest" for Cleveland etc., but after his mess with David Blatt I just want him to lose. Him and his brilliant Basketball mind.

I seriously believe that he cares more about his brand than about Cleveland.

 

Akron, that's another matter. I do respect LeBrons off-court humanitarian activities, esp. in the education field. But I want him to lose this season, period. Such arrogance behaviour towards a Coach shouldn't be rewarded. Even Jordan or Kobe never belittle their Coach in such a way.

Well they certainly got a healthy serving of humble pie this series. Dare I say Lebron has been more likable than steph and draymond lately.
