Hope it goes the full 7.

More Lebron and More Curry is fine by me.

I also have withdrawls once hoops is over for the year


Praying for  1. Some Cohesion (Ill fitting parts with young bucks, new guys, and those playing for next contracts may muck things up all season) 2. Better Coaching, No More Tanking (Last season was more of the latter but not sure how much of the former we can count on. Walton with something to prove this season as much as any Laker player) 3. Rookie Watch (Hoping Lonzo outshines his daddy (ROTY??), and Kuzma finds minutes and makes a push for all rook 2nd team)

READY FOR SEASON!!!

I think there is a better chance of Delly, Smith, Schumpert, Moz, and Tristan having colder stretches than Iggy, Bogut, Draymond, Ezeli, and Barnes.

LeBron can have his, you can't let Smith look like he's a top 5 SG though. Or let Tristan grab boards like The Worm. If GS let's that happen, they deserve to lose.

In a somewhat paradoxical statement, sometimes you have to lose before you can win.

 

Once the Warriors get over the hump of Finals inexperience, I think next year and the years beyond will be theirs to win.

I am ok with either result.

GSW has more talent But Cavs have Lebron

It will depend on Kyrie's health also.

 

But it will be nice if it is close series like 2 years ago.  Want 7 games to stretch things out as much as possible

I'm finding it pretty amazing that a player even as capable as David Lee can barely get any minutes on a team where Speights is out w injury, and Bogut is a liability at end of games due to free throw shooting.

Team is clearly on the rise.

And more fun to watch than those great phoenix running teams from 8-10 years back

Surprised to see a lot of people saying the Cavs will win this.

 

Vegas has GS as heavy favorites for the chip with odds of -230 for the series and think Cleveland at +195 for the chip. I know Vegas makes lines to move money to either side, but lets be honest not many are better than Vegas at calling series of sporting events.

@ArashMarkazi: Steve Kerr had Luke Walton address the Warriors about his NBA Finals experiences with the Lakers. No Warriors player has been this far.


Hell yeah.

Their bone headed spurts worry me

 

Those bone head spurts clearly don't last too long if they went 12-3 throughout the western playoffs and were the best defense and offense team during the regular season.

 

All this trepidation that the warriors aint ready and need more experience is just some ole' crock of bull. If the spurs looked as good as the warriors did all season and got to the finals everyone would say they would be a lock to win. If the cavs put up the stats all season long that the warriors did people would crown them champs easily. However, people don't give the warriors the same benefit of the doubt. I know experience is important but when a team is firing on all cylinders experience isn't the most important thing. Did the pistons that beat us in the early 2000's have finals experience? How about that Boston Team that won just a few years back, any of those players ever go to a finals before? When your good your good plain and simple. All experience is code for is those players know that every play in the series matters, it means they go 110% up and down the court all game. This is what experience gives you, it doesn't make you shoot better or make shots you would of missed if you never shot them in the finals before. Gotta worry about pressure for anyone, but the truth is GS really doesn't have much pressure on it. A lot of Americans, sport casters and writers still say CLE is gonna win, all the pressure is being pushed to Lebron. Everyone saying he carried this team to the finals even though they were in the positive against the Hawks with him on the bench, and the fact the supporting cast are draining threes from a 40% clip while Bron is way off from down town. 

 

People that I talk to and pick the cavs I ask why and they always say "Lebron he is just too good to lose." Last I checked he lost last year in the finals, and three years before that. Great teams trump great players any day of the week and this GS team is having a historic season, but gets no confidence from people because its GS doing it not one of the traditional powerhouses in the sports

Lebron is scary. Players who hang their hat on 3-point shooting are scary too, for a different reason. Live and die...
