    Let us meme it into being. We aren't the saviors the league deserves, but we are the ones it needs right now.

    If we win, nobody can deny this.

    If nothing else Boston would save part of the NBA.

    They are winning in their Conference without a) a Superstar

    b) with a smart coach and Defense.

    c) with sophomores and a rookie.

    Right now, it looks like Ainge/Stevens are building the 'Spurs of the East'

    I have no doubt that we would beat the 73-9 Warriors, and I have faith that we can beat this current GS squad too

    Nothing against them but they are not the 73-9 Warriors no more, they got KD but that team had Elite Curry and Elite Execution.

    This team has an elite roster on paper but has several mental lapses.

    We'll see if they are Elite at Oracle.

    Boston is going to dominate the east for years - Cleveland gifting them Kyrie was the cherry on top. Jaylen Brown looks legit and Hayward is going to be back strong.

    Ainge is a punk. Boston is a racist ass city. Hope they go back to sucking.

    on the team yet. So definitely much easier give or take guys like Bogut and Barnes that had a huge impact. Bogut being as dirty as Donkey and able to get away with it.

    "Not 1, not 2, not 3". This ruined the league, not Kevin Durant

    Also, the East is weak.

    Disagree.

    As bad as that Miami thing was (and it was), it was not as bad as what Durant did.

    Golden State had just broken the single season wins record. A record that a lot of people thought may not ever be broken. Even with losing in the Finals, they were one of the best teams of all time.

    James and Bosh joined up with their friend to try to make a great team. Durant joined an already all time great team.

    They won 2 out of 4 years and were in multiple 7 game series. Not even close to what KD did lol.

    They all planned to form this "big 3" to stack the deck against the weaker teams in the Eastern Conference. It was actually worse because they already PLANNED this while still playing for their teams prior

    If you feel by me stating facts I'm "hating", then does that really make me a hater? Or does it just expose your infatuation with Lebron James?
