    Lebron and Kyrie got lucky with their 'hero ball'. The Warriors usually zero in on the hero ball stuff. Kyrie hit some amazing shots.

    but i thought presti was the worst gm ever and kd had no choice but to leave if he ever wanted to win.


    and glad to see others pointing out kd may have thrown the series to join GS. or at the very least may have not done his utmost because he was too busy doing recruitment facetimes to pay attention.



    also, i can't tell if ai's comments are positive or negative for kd. in one way, he's saying kd was so great that his team was the best. in another he's saying they had the best team and kd couldn't win a championship even though he had the best team.

    He's basically admitting that Westbrook and kd are better than all of their stars because let's face it kanter Adams and ibaka are good but they aren't better than the splash bros and welvin the great

    this man speaks the truth...about the Thunder being better than the Warriors with Durant.

    But dont think Durant has the same success against Lebron (who has his #).

    Heads up vs the Warriors the Thunder...figured it out against the Warriors and took them behind the wood shed multiple games. Theyve essentially had the lead for a majority of each and every game. The Warriors just executed better down the stretches of game 5/6/ and 7. Andre speaks the truth.

    Trying to make his new teammate look like an even bigger b****? Not sure why he'd want to do that.

    You sound angry, man. I hope I never care about sports as desperately as you do.

    I guess he didn't realize LeBron has Durant's number.

    They didn't get lucky. They are two of the best scorers in basketball and LeBron is one of the best scorers in league history. Kyrie may have the biggest shot arsenal in the league now that Kobe is retired. He has a lot of versatility in his offensive game.

    The ezeli foul and the subsequent 3pt made in rhythm after 3 fts gave cavs 6 pts to tie the game. The ezeli switch could not have been planned by Donovan, hence u can call it luck.

    Kerr put too much trust on a nervous young center, he still didn't know the character flaws in his players, there's the loss imo. Many things could have happened differently, but ezeli's nervousness was not random. Lebron got two gifts.

    You don't get lucky 3 games in a row especially against an "all time great team." Momentum is very real and for the Warriors to not make adjustments on hero ball for 3 straight games says more about them than Cleveland's "luck." Let's not forget the disappearing acts of the splash sisters that put Houdini to shame.

    Iguodala taunts and gloats when GS wins and acts salty as hell when they lose. I hope they have a terrible year and AI eats **** again.

    If the Thunder were better then GS they would have won the series. Last I checked they got beat, and in fact they BLEW a 3-1 lead.

    Those are really nothing special in today's NBA. Even the trash Rockets best a 3-1 series a year ago

    The Rockets were better than the Clippers last year. As far as anyone is concerned, winning a 7 game series means you're better.

    Thus we were a better team then the Clippers. We're not talking about one game, but a seven game series. GS won as did the Rockets. The better team doesn't blow a 3-1 series lead.

    Forget Bogut, but if Green wasn't suspended. I think the Warriors win the championship. I think Cleveland knows it and the entire basketball world. However, I'm still very happy Cleveland won. Taking road trips through Ohio won't be so dreary. I like being around happier people.

    That block by LeBron from the other side of the universe really traumatized Iggy a lot.
