    My season has been devastated by the Rockets.. only thing that can give me some solace is if any team can beat GS..I hate GS as much as i hated Sonics... these are my 2 most hated teams. The 2 players I hated/hate most are Gary Payton and Draymond Green.

    I hope eastern conference champion can give me the solace...not have much confidence in Blazers (specially with Nurkic & Hood injury) but will root for them or anybody for that matter.

    Neither has much of a chance. I'd say the Raptors might have a slightly better chance of taking it to 6 games.

    I see gentleman sweeps for GSW in the next few rounds though.

    Bucks for me, i think Giannis and Lopez can be a big problem for the Warriors, plus they have guards who can attack Curry. I feel like against the Raptors it would be a Kawhi vs the world show, Lowry is just too old and not good enough, Green is ok, Gasol would be killed just like against us, Siakam would be guarded by Draymond...

    Neither but if I had a choose someone to pull up a miracle I'm putting my money on Kawhi. That mans been in his bag these playoffs.

    I think the Bucks win the title this year. Defense, shooters, Giannis. Very well rounded team.

    Agreed 100%. The Bucks present a lot of problems for any team. Lopez being able to hit that three ball and all the versatile defenders they have...Let's put it this way. Although, I'd favor the Warriors bc they are the Warriors...I wouldn't be entirely surprised if the Bucks end up beating the living crap out of them.

    the only one u can really trust on the Raptors is Kawhi

    If they don’t get Durant back the Bucks will beat them as he might be the only offsetting answer they have for that greek freak

    Giannis is something we've never seen before

    Problem is Bucks will likely be like deers in headlights in the finals and it would be over before they realize it

    Am I in the minority that wants to see the Warriors win it all? For selfish reasons of course. My dream scenario when the season started (wasn't wishing this) was KD gets injuried and GS still wins the title easily without him. Of course this is if the Rockets couldn't beat them. I hated KD so much for his move to GS that I thought this would be a way to make him feel un-needed and would make him look even worse for the move. That's how much it still bothers me. Also I want the Rockets to be able to say they're the only team that put up a real fight against GS. It's extremely Petty and in the end we're still losers but as much grief as the Rockets get I figured at least they'll have that.

    Bucks.
    Giannis is special, they have size on the wing and bigs that can shoot. More importantly they're a top defensive club who play on a string. They're built like the Rockets should be given their philosophy. I like the Bucks in 6 vs the Warriors.

    The only chance for any team to beat them is if KD becomes pissed off that they are enjoying so much playing without him, and he player tanks the finals.

    I would love a Game 7 though in the Finals just like the Lake Show vs Boston.

    I think it is a year too early for the Bucks but you never know. Playoff Kawhi is ridiculous though too.

    If only your logic made sense. The Clippers took a healthier GSW team to 6, so they already have the Rockets beat when it comes to putting up a fight. We couldn’t beat Klay, Dray and scrubs in the first half of G6, so if anything we will be remembered as clowns from that standpoint.

    They look like clowns because Houston ppl gave public interviews about being obsessed and saying 'Bring on the Worriers, they ain't that good.'

    Hadn't they done it, it would just be a more talented squad beating the 2nd best or 3rd best Squad.

    If you go to the media, you better have something to back it up.

    Bucks are a better team, but I believe Raptors are better suited to beat the Warriors.

    Neither team has a chance. Rockets are the closest by far, and half of Clutchfans wants to blow the team up.
