    Golden State is done if KD doesn’t show up.

    KD only had a decent game, for him.

    Klay Thompson sure showed up .

    Thompson in my eyes is the 2nd greatest shooter in the NBA. I Actually think he’s a better player than Steph for his defense.

    He played like garbage and they won by 29. If Warriors are locked in they won’t be beat. They consistently lose focus though so anything can happen in Game 7. Gordon, Ariza & Tucker probably need monster games for it to even be competitive. Houston needs to hold Golden State to the low 90’s to have a shot Monday because without Paul they can’t outgun the Warriors. They scored 25 points in the entire 2nd half tonight. Once the Warriors defense is engaged they are really tough to score on, Houston hasn’t broken 100 in 4 consecutive games, that’s not something I thought I’d ever see.

    Lebron is a beast but can he carry the Cavs to another championship win. Congrats

    The Celtics will be back and better than ever next year.

    You see pancakes, like Lebron, are really, really good.  But if you consume too many pancakes, you just get fucking sick until you puke and you no longer want to see a pancake, much less consume it.  Same goes for the NBA Finals.

    Thankfully Jordan retired and the Rockets gave us all a break halfway through.

    That said... Jordan  > Lebron.

    Jordan in championships is greater than lebron. As a player LBJ is by far better...

    LBJ as a GM is horrible and Jordan knew who to surround himself with.

    That is the funniest thing I've read today,  "far better" better than Jordan. I can understand why there is some argument on the GOAT, but in no world anywhere is LBJ "far better" than Jordan. 

    I have Jordan as the GOAT and until this year, had James at 3rd, but he has surpassed expectations this year and has moved to number 2 for me, but he's still not better than MJ for me


    I'll ride the wave where it takes me

    J Brown and Rozier must have been something like a combined 2 for 20 from 3pt land? There goes the game right there. Why were they still in the game during the 4th quarter? They were ice cold and contributed nothing. God that was frustrating to watch all those selfish bad shots from Morris, Smart, Horford, Brown, and Rozier. Just give the ball to Tatum he was feeling it.

    Baynes is dead space. Guy can’t get a rebound unless it hits him directly in the chest. Never thought i’d miss seeing Kelly Olynyk out there. I’ll pass on the soon to be Warriors/Cavs final.

    Not only was Jordan better, he was more enjoyable to watch. I hate the fucking Cavs. It's boring basketball.

    Obviously it's an incredible accomplishment to get this team to the finals. Reminds me of AI taking the Sixers to the finals in '01. Saying Lebron is far better than Jordan is utterly ridiculous though.

    Clearly the 7 man rotation caught up to the Celts last night, a lot of wide open 3's left well short by Rozier, Brown, Morris & Smart (who really should never shoot a 3).

    Tip of the hat to the LeBrons, they were the better team last night.

    Can't wait for next year with hopefully a healthy Irving and Hayward added back to the mix.

    This weekend we rock Portland
