    Never Forget dumb ass Kerr signed Shaq as GM of the Suns.

    It will be nice to have a Warriors-free spring and summer. Just another lottery team that I don't have to see on tv. No close-ups of Draymond's face or smug post-game conferences with Kerr.

    GS thinks too much of their trophies which are no more than byproduct of tech boom in Bay Area as well as league's big market strategy.
    kerr, the clown, and jeet Kune Do master Draymond Green just luckily caught the bus.

    They are right in the sense that the recent roster moves have been made to specifically beat them...and microball is an extension of those moves.

    Surprise the team that wins 3 rings in 4 years is going to get credit for a style of play.

    So many posters who are so blinded by homer goggles to the point where easy rational answers right in front of them don't exist.

    Imagine if Harden had that type of clutch game in like a game 7 of a playoff series instead of in the regular season.

    Another hijacked thread by chow on his anti-Harden crusade.

    So predictable.

    And another post attacking posters instead of discussing the content of what the poster typed.

    I am absolutely pumped about the playoffs this year. Should be a lot of fun... unless it's just more of the same LeBron thing.

    KD had more weak side blocks in one season than our entire starting line up has had over their entire careers, combined.

    Yeah, but to run it like the Warriors did, you need a couple of things
    1) ELITE 3 point shooters (Curry, Thompson) which we don't currently have
    2) Sanction from the league to freely use moving screens and also save the ball while standing out of bounds.

    But I like our combo of Russ pushing pace and driving (where he's most effective)
    and then James' playmaking (sometimes drawing double teams and leaving others open)
    Curious to see how it goes when Bruno is available to run the floor and protect the rim

    Still don't know what you are talking about or who the heck is Bruno!?!?

    Harden and westbrook didn't even combine for 20 in the all star game!?!?

    Guess you can say that is disapointing when LeBron and Davis almost combined for 50!!! Is it load management!?!?!

    The quote you used sounds like it's the Rockets coach giving credit to the GSW, not GSW taking credit.

    It's both.

    But it's one thing when someone credits you and another entirely when one takes the credit for themselves.

    Just accept that harden ain't built like that. Regular season is a completely different season than post season.

    Scottie Brooks played harden from the bench early in harden's career just like Jeremy Lin was a bench player.

    Harden has been successful soley under Mike d'antoni.

    Mike d'antoni is a brilliant small ball coach!
