    NBA finals 2017

    What a ass whopping tonight.

    Do you think Cavs have a prayer?

    4-0 seems very very possible after Durant ran them over.

    Could this be the worse Stanley Cup, NBA finals ever with 4-0 or 4-1 series wins?

    The NHL playoffs this year has been FAR better than the NBA playoffs and the finals are no different. Both hockey games so far were tightly contested minus a period. The NBA playoffs were either sweeps by "dominant" (more on this later) teams or mediocre teams going 6/7. The Cavs are perceived to the hype in this matchup for good reason; third straight same finals, only lost one game in the East bracket... but don't forget the East was utter trash this year and the Warriors added Durant. The Cavs didn't try on D in the regular season, and although they're "trying" now, they're nowhere near good enough to contain the best team of all-time (yeah I went there). I would be surprised if the NBA finals went further than five games, and IMO it's safe to say that if they sweep the Cavs, they'll likely get branded as the GOAT team.

    I think the Cavs will win at least one game... the Warriors will let their guard down at some point. With Klay not shooting well, it looked quite tough on the Warriors when KD was on the bench.

    I just really hope we don't see any injuries. I want the Dubs to beat LeBron fair and square!

    That Bogut injury was pretty big. The Cavs got out rebounded big time. That 7 footer would have help, any help was needed on the boards.

    I think the Preds will take at least 2 home games, but Pens will win.
    Would like to see the Preds win as it gives me a chance to touch the cup when it comes to town.

    Whether you like the Super teams or not, take in this NBA finals because we're likely 2 or 3 years away from this never happening again. I hope the Warriors run the table.

    Thompson is getting shut out in the paint and JR choking like Ray Allen in 08. Love plays shit D and the warriors are exploiting that like a leaking levee in New Orleans. Williams and Korver aren't hitting 3s as well....Cavs have an older bench that is getting gassed out by 4th quarter

    Then again LeBron could be trolling aND lulling the Warriors into a sense of overconfidence

    That must've been incredibly disheartening, to just shit the bed like that in the last three or so minutes. The Lebron haters/MJ nuthuggers are going to come out in full force. It's also pretty awkward for Lebron because even though you want to make the best plays for the team, Kyrie is still the best isolation player on that team... every time shit goes down* you got people asking why isn't Lebron taking that shot etc.?!

    *Disclaimer: Kyrie 2016 finals winning three not withstanding

    Lebron and Uncle Drew can't do it all.

    If you watch the game without sound you can see that the refs/announcers are pretty biased....there was a lack of calls for the cavs, especially in the paint/layups.

    They were really looking to draw the fouls but with no call their D got exposed

    It was an extremely heartbreaker for me. Always root against superteams and the Cavs just needed one bucket or a 3 when they were up 6 with 3 minutes to play.
    This team was built a bit wrong imo. Channing Fry does not play a minute ? Deron Williams is exposed as a moving iceberg out there against a quick team. They were brought in to destroy the East and now way too slow against the fast West team.

    I think of the stars in the league will jump on the Cavs bandwagon as its got 1-2 years left tops. There is no more room on the Golden State's wagon.

    Perhaps Paul George ? Melo ?

    This happens every year. A large reason I quit watching most of the games or taking the league too seriously. However, there was a major 3 step travel violation that should have been called against the Cavs late it the game that would have iced it for GSW around the 2 minute remaining mark.
    It's called the Superstar Rules. MJ was not immune to this in his day, nor Kobe, not Malone, Iverson.......

    How about Palming the Ball. Durant has a PHD in it.
