When the team is losing in the lotto, the forum is always better. For some reason people get along better when the team is bad.

You're not wrong lol

The most disappointing thing about the Warriors losing is we no longer can use this meme.

Durant out for a year, Klay blew his knee. GSW's run is over. Kyrie leaving Celtics so they have no one to pair AD with.

Lebron/Lakers had the best offseason ever. Two major competitors are out of the equation, if they get AD they are the favorites to win it all. Depressing.

I know they don't care, but Raptors winning a tittle against a team that lost two of their best players adds a huge asterisk next to that tittle.

Rockets should stand pat now. With the way the finals played out the west is wide open now. If LBJ gets AD its over because they will be able to sign another star on top of that. If they dont get AD they still will have a shot. I think Kawhi also plays a huge part. If he ends up with Clips then you have an elite team starting there

All the Celtics have to do is beat the Bucks and the Raptors and we're golden next season. ;) Get ready for the Celtics title run. It's our time.

Wizards trying to poach Masai. Lakers apparently will try to do so as well.

Dang. Raptors poster who had a thread about Kawhi and Siakam being the next Jordan and Pippen wasn't lying lol. That was back in March I think.

I thought the Raptors should've done even better, tbh. The Warriors were a mess in the playoffs. Nearly no bench, Durant obviously out, Klay missing a quarter and then blew out his ACL in the last game. We need to go after Davis. Yea I said it in a Non Celtics Talk thread.
Good assessment:

Wow just found out Klay has a torn ACL which means no KD & Klay for next season. I wonder if the Warriors offer them both max contracts considering they’ll be out for the whole season ?

Houston might run it back one more time with the Warriors' injuries and all.

Durant ruptured achilles?
Klay torn ACL?
Raptors win the title behind strong performances from Kyle Lowry, Pascal Siakam and Fred Van Vleet?

Battle of LA next season most likely with Lebron/AD vs Kawhi and whoever else Clippers can get. Let me just puke real quick.

Will the Warriors even make the playoffs next season? Feels like that dynasty came to an abrupt end real quick. Not great for the league losing 2 great stars like that tho :-/
