    Me too. I hate the Mavs! I hate Dirk! I hate Cuban! I always hate the Mavs!

    However, watching the Clippers and Warriors these games sure have made this a harder decision than I thought it would be.

    Dwight and DeAndre are actually incredibly close friends off the court, and DeAndre always texts Dwight words of encouragement before games. Any tension you perceived was just competitive fire.

    I voted the Warriors simply because they might just be the most arrogant, bitch-made combination of organization and team I've ever seen from a team that's literally accomplished NOTHING to date. A little humility goes a long way, and I just wish that the Rockets can bring them down back to Earth.

    Whoever we're playing against at the moment. Probably Mavs when we're not playing any of the above, but right now it's GS, and I would say the level of cheating that's our opponents have gotten away with has escalated with each series... well... maybe Mavs and Clips were equalish in this respect but wow I had NO idea the extent of cheating GS systematically employs and gets away with until watching this series. As good as they and everyone in the media like to think they are, they sure have to cheat a lot. It's a lot like playing against Karl Malone and the Jazz... if you're so good, what are you doing cheating all the time?

    There is only one correct answer--The Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA finals.

    I don't get why so many people think the Warriors to be exceptionally arrogant. Other than the media making them the golden boys, what have they done or said to make you think they are arrogant?

    To me, the Clippers are far more arrogant and annoying than any other teams in the NBA, except perhaps the Lakers before they fell flat to the ground this season.

    Oh thats new. I actually have no ptoblem with DeAndre as he doesnt seem like an A-hole type of player (Like Draymond, Paul, Bogut, Curry, Barrea, Dirk) but that stretching thing he used to do before every single free throw (like he's about to bench press) used to annoy the hell out of me, dont know why :grin:

    1- "Strength By Numbers"
    2- Curry/Draymond continuous showboating
    3- that look on Steve Kerr's face in press conferences or in interviews ( ya ok i know nothing concrete but i feel it :grin: )

    One word: Cuban!

    Not only did the rockets prove him wrong and shut him up, they also got past the 1st round after failing to do so for some years.

    The Mavs - Mark Cuban - Mavs Fans

    I've got no hate for Dirk or any other Mavs player except for Tyson Chandler, and I'm peaved at Parsons for the way he handled his signing & the words soon after.

    But I still can't stand Mark Cuban and the Mavs Fans - they just run their mouths too much.


    Ive got no hate for the Clippers or Warriors - not as teams..but I cannot stand Barnes - he's just a thug. I like Curry, just not when he's playing us. DeAndre Green is annoying, but not as bad as Bogut who's getting away with far too much.

    Gotta be the Mavs.
    Nothing sucks worse than sitting next to bemoaning "fans" in their bedazzled denim jeans and v neck MFFL tees.

    Between the Clippers and Warriors for me.

    The Mavs are just too... bad to care.
    That series wasn't even as close as 4-1.
    And the Rockets wouldn't have been the only team to beat the Mavs.
    Frankly, I think the Mavs would have lost to every other team in the playoffs... maybe except the Blazers, who seemed to mail it in.
    So... who really cares about them?

    CP3 and Blake are definitely annoying. Barnes was annoying. I've always found Doc Rivers annoying.

    The Warriors can be really annoying, too... but I can also see myself really liking the Warriors if I'm not a fan of another team.

    For me, it's the Clippers with their incessant whining and flopping. Something that starts at the top with Doc Rivers and is championed by the only thing two of the league's biggest offenders are actually "champions" at, Blake and CP3.

    Anytime the whistle was blown they would cry and complain. Literally every single time. The flopping was out of control with Fat Baby, Crawford, Blake and those guys diving all over the place. You have Crawford kicking his feet out on three point attempts followed by immediate dives thus inducing all of those whistles on three point attempts.

    All very frustrating, which made the series win that much more gratifying!
