If they win the title this year and do so without significant contribution from Durant in the 2 last rounds, AND Durant re-signs there anyway, he's a freakin' cuck, doormat of a person.
Another thing, we all focus on what we lost when he left for Golden State around here, but watching them without him I'm reminded of what the basketball world generally lost. This version of the Warriors is so much more entertaining. There's actual drama. There's some chance they'll lose and when they play great and win anyway its so much more fun than watching them with Durant out there just steamroll everyone.
even with durant i'm not sure milwaukee would be a pushover for the warriors if they get there.
You jinxed them so hard with this. They were up 2-0 in the series when you made this comment and then got the 2012 Spurs treatment (and Leonard and Danny Green ought to know something about that).
i was talking to someone about this series the other day and you know, it's interesting the parallels between the bucks and spurs. bucks rely so much on their depth. their starters aren't especially dominant but so many of their reserve lineups are. this is the opposite of the raptors and sixers. bucks could have lost more value than some would have thought (myself included) heading into the playoffs against those teams since their opponent's best lineups will see the floor a lot more often.
