    It's Durant's MVP again. Curry is such a scrub.

    He can't beat them scoring 50.

    I will watch his highlights at some point then.

    He really is the equivalent of the double-dragon reverse elbow, isn't he? It just kind of breaks the game? (I don't mean it in a negative way, but his jumper is kind of like prime sky-hook at this point.)

    He definitely broke the game. As if Kerr pulled out some type a-a-a-b street fighter cheat code

    He’s a truly great player, the best offensive player in the NBA. That’s why it’s so disappointing that he did this

    Lebron can't really do much more with that roster, the guy at 33 is playing 48 minutes per game after he already played almost 40 carrying his team during the regular season...and the Warriors might not even be at their best after the series against us. Unless the Cavs will be able to get a star there with the Nets pick (very unlikely), Lebron has no reason to stay if he wants to win, the Celtics are going to beat his ass next season.

    He just pulled up from like 28 or 29 feet and casually hit a dagger to put the game away. Every time the Cavs would gain some momentum, here comes KD making some tough shot over good defense.

    Eh, lets not go that far. I would argue Harden, Curry and Lebron are better.......and then i would be a homer and say Harden D :

    if LeThanos wants to win another ring, he needs to come to Houston

    media needs to stop it with this Philly talk, and LA sounds nice with PG, but please...

    Rockets got the blueprint to beat GS

    Good, this is what the NBA deserves. A clean sweep. No more finals revenue for you.

    Have not had a finals sweep since 2007 when spurs took care of young Lebron. I think we get it this year now.

    It's still inexplicable to me that Silver rigged Game 7 to get this. Another 3-0 lead for the Warriors over the Cavs. Who gives a sh-t if the ratings are good when the series at best will go 5 and everyone knows the outcome beforehand?

    Durat is averaging 32, 11, and 7 on well over 50% shooting in these finals

    last year he averaged like 35, 8, and 5 on over 50% shooting

    he also averaged 31 ppg on over 50% shooting when he made the finals with OKC

    he’s about to win a 2nd FMVP

    Where do people think he will finish on the all-time rankings?

    They got a ton of revenue already with the true finals (Warriors v. Rockets). That series did gangbusters. These games are just **** icing on the cake.

    Durant’s efficiency is absurd. His 2P FG% the last few years has been 56%+. That’s the same as Kareem, and almost on par with Shaq... except he’s a jump shooter.

    LBJ’s efficiency is also incredible, but his is more of a function of attacking.
