  1. No wonder why you seem to find them boring because you’re not even watching the Warriors. Makes sense now.
  2. Draymond has been so great this post season. Like he said, there are 82 games players and there are 16 games players.
  3. Yep she asked him have you thought about that this could be last time you play in your hometown and Dame should’ve given a Russ or Pop answer for how dumb the question was.
  4. Truth be told, we can both point to statistical anomalies for both teams in this game. So I wouldn’t get carried away tbh. Bucks didn’t shoot well at all through the first 3 Quarters yet the Raptors shot horrible in the 4th Q.
  5. The Official Trevor Lawrence 2021 Draft Prospect Thread

    Bro I’m hoping so much this is true. I’m holding you to this!
  6. Biggest head scratching picks

    Please don’t try and speak for all Giants fans. Cos that’s not true
  7. Who ends up ranked higher All Time: KD or Steph?

    You mean that time he had greatest season ever? That one?
  8. Because the Rockets players have convinced themselves that they could beat the Warriors. They conducted an audit into the officiating last year, the whole Chris Paul injury last year too, your GM had expressed his obsession in trying to beat the Warriors . Come on let’s not act it’s come out of left field. Your right no other team has come nearly as close as you guys but in that same token nobody has been more confident and outspoken about their chances.
  9. No I clearly said refused to shoot. There’s a difference between not being able to make shots and just flat out deferring and refusing to make them. Barnes couldn’t make the most wide open shots that he normally make. Barnes wasn’t just bad, he was useless. Being just bad may have been enough to win that series. How is saying that the Warriors would’ve won the series regardless brushing off love and Kyrie. Not like I’m saying it would’ve been a sweep. The reason I bring up Bogut is because after Draymond he’s their only real rim protector. Kyrie and Bron could just feast in the paint. again I’m not denying how great they were, but I’m saying luck/good fortune had at least just amount to do with the comeback than them being great.
  10. No Harden and LeBron refused to shoot and were careless with the ball totally in their control. It’s not like they started missing shots that they normally make. Barnes couldn’t hit a wide open look. If he was just bad he would’ve been helpful but he was useless. Disagree wholeheartedly they were equally matched teams. They were a damn good Cavs team but the Warriors were an all time great team. LIS, Steph already being hobbled, Iggy being hobbled, Draymond suspension, Bogut injury whilst Draymond suspended. And Harrison Barnes refusing to make any open shots. They all played a role. It goes without saying that the Cavs were more than good enough to take advantage.
  11. Wait how were they in control in game 4? That was a close back and forth game til the warriors pulled away late. Fine, the Warriors weren’t lucky because I think they would’ve won in 2015 with or without Kyrie and Love. I never said mthe Warriors would’ve destroyed them in either 2015 or 2016. I said they would’ve won both years imo. All I’m saying that in 2016 the Cavs were lucky and that a lot went in their favour for them to comeback because teams never really lose up 3-1 particularly with home court advantage barnes couldn’t hit why open shots, I’m not giving Love that credit.
  12. There’s this thing called defense just so you know. It works both ways, yes those players around LeBron didn’t have to do much offensively but they sure were geared to try and slow down GS defensively. If Love and Kyrie are there, yes the Cavs are much better offensively but they are also much worse defensively against the best offense in the league. Simple as that. And I also don’t buy Kevin love being effective vs GS tbh. He was never somebody who had a notable impact vs the Warriors. Because once gS lost game 5, the momentum swung and Cleveland got to go home and win a game. And playing on your home floor matters. And again, I said Draymond being out was a reason for them losing the series it weren’t THE reason. Warriors had no business losing that series.
  13. You guys look at it well, Kyrie and Love both missed out and they managed to go 6 games with Delly and JR so therefore they would’ve won if you just replaced those two or what ever. No it’s about matchups. That year the Cavs team was a baddd defensive team all year long with Kyrie and Love starting. With them getting injured they instantly were a much better defensive team. They slowed the game down. And that was effective vs GS. If the Cavs tried to play GS *** for tat and at a faster pace that would’ve worked in GS favour. Which is why Memphis gave GS problems earlier that playoff run. You can think that the Cavs would’ve won regardless but you haven’t provided anything to even argue that claim and not to mention you’d be saying that after the Warriors went 3-1 up that you expected something unprecedented to happen which is a team come back from 3-1 down in the Finals.
  14. Did you not see the other reasons I listed because it’s clear as day i mentioned other things. And if you read what I actually wrote, evidently you didn’t, I said that even if Kyrie and Love were there the Warriors would’ve still won. Hence kind of lucky...
