    Just hope GS is healthy. Don't like Nor Cal's, but it would be good for the state, and I always rooted for western teams. Unless the Clippers are playing... :)

    ESPN's love for LeBron is mind boggling. Article I read last night acted as if GSW has no chance … seems to me Warriors are the far deeper, better balanced team. Hoping they smoke the Cavs like a crispy, Cali spliff.

    ^ You should read the more delusional Cavs "fans" commenting on every one of those articles.

    "Cavs in 5"

    "GSW stand no chance against THE KING. Cavs are gonna sweep."

    "LeBron gonna show who the real MVP is."

    The one thing that worries me about GS is they lack experience. At least Lebron has been there multiple times. Kerr can only talk so much about his experience with the Bulls.

    "Pay attention" is not what I'd call it. :embar: But yeah, I couldn't help checking the article because of the title implying the Dubs had little chance. For the record it was late and I was checking French Open scores because watching tennis on the West coast is impossible.


    @Neo_Version 7 "Cavs are gonna sweep." lol. Well it is Cleveland in May. It's the first time they've seen the sun in 6 months so maybe their brains are still defrosting.

    Do not tell me you are a Serena fan. She is the LBJ of the sport....

    In fairness to Cavs fans, GSW fans say the same ridiculous things minus real MVP stuff.

    Went to the game last night. It's always fun to see your team clinch on their home floor, even in an ugly win. I was in a suite so I didn't get the full Oracle experience but I'm not complaining. It's not so clear to me that the Warriors have as big an advantage as the records would indicate or that Lebron's finals experience is that meaningful. The emergence of Mozgov and Tristan Thompson could give the W's fits, as can the fact that Klay just hasn't played well in the playoffs. At least both teams will have an opportunity to get close to full strength. I probably won't have an opportunity to attend any of the finals games, so it's safe to say that last night was the best game I will have seen in person for a long time.

    this looks like the 2007 Finals all over again if Kyrie isn't 100%. Lebron pretty much by himself against a deep, complete, team with good coaching that makes the best use of their weaponry.

    Hopefully he doesn't run Anthony Davis into the ground and learns how to rest his players.

    Watch some tape of Wilt dude... sure moves Wilt had back then were enough to beat competition he had. Shaq was much quicker and had much better footwork and skills having same or better strength. Only center that equals Shaq is Hakeem Olajuwon IMO.

    ^ He probably doesn't like Shaq because in his GM eyes, he was lazy and didn't work hard enough for all the money, endorsements, and women that were being thrown his way.

    It's the same story with this guy. :facepalm:

    sorry. i'm old enough to have seen both of them play. wilt was clearly the more dominant player. not flawless, certainly, but an amazing athlete. shaq was a great player who could have been the best ever, but never fully lived up to it.

    I've always wondered about this but you think opposition also had plenty to do with it? Not questioning his ability and skills, Wilt is great without a doubt but I can't help but be curious how he would do today. I am sure scoring a 100 for him would be impossible with todays athletes.

    I think so, he would have to develop better skills in todays game. He just didn't have to back then.


    In his prime he could be considered best ever, he was just unstoppable 2000-2002. He destroyed everyone in playoffs. WIth his size and mass I'm not sure extra work load would do him any good. There's isn't anything he could have done much better besides shooting, but that's Wilt story again. With some guys, you just can't make them good shooters.
