People are forgetting how good that 17' Cavs team was. Sure, their defense wasn't good, but that was Lebron (Top 2-3 player of all time) surrounded by 2 all-stars, an army of shooters and 2 excellent rebounders. That was peak Lebron with more or less the perfect team around him.
The Warriors, who were VERY GOOD defensively that year, weren't able to stop the Cavs from scoring in that series. Like, not even a little bit. People are fools if they think the Warriors would've been able to keep up with the Cavs scoring with Harrison Barnes in Durant's place.
FOH with that.
