and then there were 8... Who wins the 'Chip? 

Post#1 » by Ivan Drago » Sun Jun 6, 2021 10:15 pm

Which team earns the privilege to hoist the Larry O'Brien trophy when its all said and done? Who gets to pop off champagne bottles with their teammates in the locker room after securing and claiming the title in this year's Nba finals? Who gets themselves some brand new jewelry courtesy by the league and acquires eternal bragging rights? Who gets to indulge in a night of infidelity in Sin City, Vegas and potentially gets a pass from their wives or possibly not? Who gets to have their chips with the dips?

Either vote for the team who you think is going to win or you can vote for the team who you want to win.

If Harden is back then Nets, otherwise I'm picking the Jazz.

Clippers
2019 Eastern Conference All Stars

Derozan
Lowry
Ibaka
Valanciunas
Van Vleet
Delon Wright
Lebron
Embiid

There are only 2 teams in the league that rank in the top 6 in offensive and defensive efficiency: the Golden State Warriors and the Toronto Raptors.

I'll take the flyer on the Suns. Although Brooklyn should coast if Harden comes back

If Harden is out, we could see a changing of the guard.

The Suns have everything - big mobile C, tough power SF who can hit the 3, lights out scorer and HOF PG. And ... *checks notes* ... Cameron Payne? The Denver series should give CP3 a chance to rest.

They're the Hawks of the East - better than we think. And the rest of the West is worse than we think.

If Harden can come back healthy I think they destroy everyone

Especially if they can get Green back as well

Nets, easily (assuming Harden's injury isn't serious).

Clips have an outside chance, but it's slim.

Nuggets could have had a chance too if Murray wasn't injured.

For me the remaining power rankings are:

1. Nets
2. Clips
3. Bucks
4. Suns
5. Jazz
6. Nuggets
7. Hawks
8. Sixers

If Harden is hurt, Clippers win it. If Harden is healthy then BKN.

Harden needs to focus on healing his hammy and getting into game shape, he hasn't looked fit all season.

If he's back, Nets win it.

Even without Harden, Brooklyn will win the Championship.

PG Mike James - Kyrie
SG Kyrie - Shamet
SF Joe Harris - Brown
PF Durant - Brown

Fun fact, of the remaining teams, the last franchise to win a championship are the 76ers in 1984.

One team is gonna break their drought.

If Harden comes back it's easily the Nets.

Nets vs Jazz finals. Superteam vs homegrown underdogs. Nets win with Harden as finals MVP if healthy as he once again neutralizes Gobert. I still think there's a chance they go out in Rd 2 though with the Bucks 3pt in game 1 proving to be fluky. Nets/Bucks winner is definitely making the finals, Sixers should come back on Hawks but are overall frauds.

Really wish Murray was healthy. I’d pick the Nuggets if he was playing
