Yeah but I mean, 11/19/13, 2 blocks 3 steals


Cousins killed them.


He did, but he gave it his all. He's just not the same player after the injury.

Speaking of Klay, if dude has anything serious, Golden State is done next year. NBA is wide open again.

Might be way overreacting, but they may struggle to make the playoffs without Klay...

8 turnovers

Way to cherry pick. [b]Warriors get blown out by 20+ if Green was not playing.[/b]

Agreed, but some of those turnovers were brutal. Sloppy turnovers and missed free throws killed them. Dray could have been better.

Positives here:

Ring chasing Cousins gets no ring.
Ring chasing Bogut gets no ring.
Toronto didn't get to celebrate the title on their home floor.

Other than that, these Finals sucked ass.

Raptors traded for a superstar and won a title. Good for them.

Interesting to see why leonard does. To me he’s the star of this free agency after Durant went down.

I thought it was more the Raptors supporting cast stepping up big time than Warriors messing up considering their roster limitations. It feels unfair asking more from the Dubs under the circumstances.

Are Irving and Durant a package deal? Interesting that Irving is signing with the nets. Warriors willing to give Durant the full max contract.

Ws def give KD the full max if he wants it.

IMO the Ky/KD rumors were always bs.

That’s fair. Dubs have always played with fire with turnovers. Not discounting Raps at all, but 8 is a LOT of turnovers for one dude.

Good for the Raptors. Happy for them. Glad they beat the Warriors and their band wagon fans.

They came together as a team, played hard, overachieved, and had a little luck on their side.

If i am him i would take it. I mean the Knicks really? I don’t know if it’s bs. Something is just weird here. Irving just looks like a loser signing with a team like the nets all by himself. Also isn’t Russell their point guard?

Kawhi's only 27. 28 come FA. And he's already won two Finals MVPs and two DPOYs. Won two rings w/ two different teams. Highest regular season winning % in NBA history. He could be top 10 all-time when all is said and done.

Overreaction much?

I like her in general, but hate all her interviews. She asks 40 minutes of questions trying to show how they’re not run of the mill questions, but ends up getting the same boring answers everyone else gets.

That’s what the nba has become. If leonard leaves idk where he would go. The clippers? I know the Knicks where interested in him.

Not at all. Finals MVP for 3 teams with the Clips next year.
