    Congrats to the Raptors.  Kawhi 2 Championships, 2 Finals MVPs, 2 different teams, 2 different conferences.  No doubt the dude can ball.  Happy for Lowry.
    It's unfortunate that KD was out and Klay went down last night, but as a result this is what happens when you actually have parity in the NBA. Margins of victory in this series: 9, 5, 14, 13, 1, 4.  That's how a Finals should be, not 30 point blowouts either way.
    Agreed, and the Warriors have had their share of injury fortune.  I'm biased, but remember in 2015 the Cavs lost Love for the year in the Celtics round and Irving broke his kneecap in the finals.  I really hope Durant goes somewhere else so this era can be over and we do get back to competitive western conference and finals.  
    Andrew Bogut breaking a foot in the first minute?
    Roll player.. that's quite different than Love or Irving, an all star.  It's more akin to say... Thompson.  Bogut averaged like 5 ppg that year.  And barely made the floor this playoffs. 
    That year though he was supposed to be a pivotal role player.

    I thought the Cavs sails were let out by that one.
    He definitely clogged the lane, but Love's role would have been to drag him out to the three point line so that Lebron can drive and kick.  I'm not saying it didn't make a difference.  Every injury has some unknown effect, but it's a far cry from the Cavs being without Love and Kyrie.

    Fair enough.

    Danny Green seems to be taking a lot of flack. Draymond fouled him about a dozen times in 2 seconds. If the game turned out differently the Raps would have a huge gripe. Not the great defense that dummies Jackson and VanGundy called it.

    Both sides should admit their error and move on if it went down like it seems.

    Stupid announcer asking Kawhi about his contract on live TV at the beginning of the trophy presentation .... 
    That was Doris Burke, a very respected person in basketball and like you, I was appalled at that damn question too.  

    Talk about souring the moment.
    Yeah, i agree.

    Last thing then I wait for everyone else's comments.

    I am happy for Kyle Lowry.

    Long time Raptor.  Good for him.
    He's the only one i'm happy for. I saw him play a lot in HS and loved watching him play back then. He went to Cardinal Dougherty which is no longer. One of those tough Philly guards.

    I love how he played last night.  I've been hard on him at times,  but total respect with that effort.  Gritty and dirty. 
    The whole playoffs he has been like that.  He came around with his shooting this game though.

    I'd like to know how many charges he got this series?  He took a few from Draymond that were hard.
    He committed too many fouls in the beginning of the series.  Didn't he foul out game one?  Or was that still Milwaukee?  But yes, his offense came around and he smartened up on defense.  
    Milwaukee must be sick right now.  They could have handled this Warriors team too.  
    You now what team is really sick? The 76ers!!

    Agreed. They need to just let it go.

    Also, you should never bet enough money that when you lose it causes this kind of break down...lol

    Dude thought it was easy money.

    EVERYONE thought it was easy money.

    I didn't think the Raptors could do it unless all their ducks were in a row, which they were...

    If he lost so much money, I'm surprised he felt he could afford a brand new TV as well, lol.
    (I stay away from people who act like that. I don't care how mad someone is or how justified the anger is - if their instinct is to destroy or punch a wall or break shit or anything like that, I won't have anything to do with them on any level. I don't think they're far from hurting someone out of anger if they act like that).

    I heard on the Canadian news that a group wants a team in Vancouver?  I do not think these folks have the money...it sounds like they want Vancouver back on the NBA radar if they expand north?  Why?  They had a team.  It did not work.  I'd like a team in Montreal.  Instant rivalry with Toronto.  However, the commish says no expansion is happening anytime soon.

    good haul by Pelicans

    Davis a great player, maybe Kawhi in play for Lakers

    id say he’d prefer Clips, and being the leader... I wouldn’t want to be near LeBron .. but Lakers are still the Lakers as dysfunctional as their present form is

    WTF Knicks... what the hell is their strategy now??

    Durant getting hurt hurt their chances. Davis was 50/50. Kyrie is most likely going to Brooklyn

    Word is they never wanted him and used it to extract one more pick from LA

    What’s Brandon Ingram’s injury prognosis?

    Nerve stuff is scary

    reports are Pels shopping 4th pick, be interesting to see what they might get for it
