I also like the GSW in 6, still not a prisoner of the moment for the Cavs despite the media build up. Hells bells they had trouble with the Raptors. Remember you can't spell CHOKE without OKC.

Kyrie has spurts where he actually plays solid defense. OTOH, I've never seen Love play good defense so he'll be a liability. I say Warriors in 6 but who's to say Cleveland doesn't get hot from 3? LeBron's gonna actually have to make shots outside of 15 ft because that bully ball isn't gonna fly in the Finals.

OKC didn't choke, game 3 and 4, Bogut only got 11 mins ea. and Warrior gets blew out by 30pts.  W/o Bogut, Warrior got out muscled.

 

The next 3 games Bogut got 30 min each game and defensively made a huge difference in the paint.

 

All it take was for the refs to make 2-3 calls against Bogut in the first quarter and the game would've been over for GSW.

I think it's safe to say that Iggy won't repeat as finals MVP. I have a feeling Klay will explode this series if Curry gets the Cavs to overreact to his threat.

The dirty little secret is that the guy that has lead the Warriors to the finals is actually Klay Thompson, would be an interesting end if he wraps it up with a finals MVP.

This series put Lebron in top 10 territory if he wins it and depends on how he wins it. His performance vs Dallas will forever keep him out of top 3 for me.

I think Lebron is alrwady top ten

Choke?


You think he'll let JR Smoth outplay him?

How good is Kyrie?

Can he challenge Steph like Dame and Westbrook?

I think for a couple of games he can truly challenge Steph, but with the job the Ws will do on Bron and Love will be formidable

I'm going to say Warriors in 5 and that doesn't necessarily mean the games wont be close.

 

I think the Dubs will take their first 2 home games, steal one at Cleveland then finish at home.

 

The Cavs this year look REALLY good though I gotta add. I'm not hating on them at all. Just think the Warriors are too hard to contain for them.

No idea.

Hope it goes 7. Or at least 6.

LeBron last year was a beast. Still pissed he didnt get finals MVP like West did that one year in a loss to Boston


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'd watch for Klay to win the Finals MVP. He's finally become a star IMO and is coming off a historic performance and a good series overall. Unless LeBron wanna guard Klay (not likely), Klay will eat up Smith, Shumpert, or anyone else they put on him.

If Lebron retires today, he'd be a top 10 easily. I dont value bball players in 60's and 70's(Yeah,Russell and Wilt arent in my top ten list) so I have James at 8.

Idk. If he loses one more time in the finals then his finals record will be pretty damn bad.

It's hard to not pick the Warriors.

But if the same Lebron from last year shows up for the Finals, then then the Cavs may just have enough to get this done. Has to be 6 games though.

Don't feed the trolls.
