    Unless there are injuries, yes I do know what the next several years will offer. The Warriors will win the West. The Cavs will win the East. And the Warriors will win the title(likely in 4 or 5 games).

    All of this is true, except the larger point is being missed here.

    How many times did Magic, Bird, Isiah, and Jordan leave the teams that drafted them and collude amongst themselves to form super teams? Or worst still, when did Jordan, after continually getting pounded, leave Chicago for Detroit in order to take down Magic's Lakers?

    The issue most 'non-casual' NBA fans have today is the feeling of a scripted reboot of Bird vs Magic -- league be damned.

    I don't even know what point you're trying to make. Not even sure you do either.

    But if the Cavs came back and won the series, you'd call them stans too? Lebron has a way bigger fanbase than Curry. and a lot of detractors too!

    i don't. he's acknowledged in interviews he has no desire to want to be on a team of his own and is fine being part of a winning culture helping guys like curry

    Every year, the vast majority of teams are in that situation, though. Are Kings fans supposed to be demotivated to watch their team because they can't beat this Warriors team? Which year would this Kings team be a title contender?

    Spurs fans I'm sure believe their team can compete. Just looking at a couple Cavaliers blogs/forums, Cleveland fans also think their team can compete. Whether they can or not is irrelevant--fans of other top teams are willing to believe the Warriors are overrated and fan of non-top teams weren't watching for the championship contention anyway,
