Sense of dread incoming.

Warriors are going to have a tough time with the Celtics.

The fact that Tatum could've been doing this as a player for the Lakers is the icing on the cake. But nooooo, "why do we need 2 young small forwards, lets just draft lonzo ball"

Is Kuzma still better than Tatum? All jokes aside, if the celtics win it all this year I just might have a heart attack


If the Celtics win it all it better light a fire under Laker management’s ass.

People really were saying we were dumb to turn down Dennis, KCP, and THT for Lowry.

He wasn’t gonna help us win last year and he’s washed as hell this year

Butler plays like butt ever since his injury. Gonna need a lot of asterisks if Foston did win the championship. I guess I'm the biggest Warriors fan unless they somehow lose to the Mavs, then I'd be the biggest Mavs fan.

Dope, looking like a Finals of one team I despise and another I can't stand in GS. Would be nice to see some kind of miracle and have at least 1 team in the Finals I can kind of root for in Miami or the Mavs but a pretty huge long shot at this point now.

Butler being hobbled and Herro being out has slaughtered Miami's offense.

I am glad Lowry didn’t get traded here, imagine paying him 2 extra years at 30m. I rather deal with the one year problem of Westbrook. Lowry has been low key MVP for the celtics

He didn’t even workout for us, if he did, Boston would’ve picked him number 1

The ECF have been so unpredictable that the Heat could definitely win Game 6.

I don't think we can assume the Celtics will win this series yet with what we've seen all through this series.

The Warriors are also an elite defensive team, but unlike the Celtics, they're also an elite offensive team, and they have more offensive weapons than the Celtics.

Plus the Warriors know how to win and close out, while the Celtics are still learning how to do so.

We will see what wins.

Thank you Nostradamus. Have you also communicated with Miss Cleo?


Eh, yup…

I would be shocked if the Celtics beat the Warriors in the finals. One thing though, if no clear favorites emerge next season, it might really be the Celtics' time.

Maybe a slight overreaction to the celtics dismantling the Heat?
Sure no doubt Boston has put together a nice all around team with 2 Elite Wings but are we too quick to forget how well the Warriors are playing?

I highly doubt Steph, Klay, Wiggins, and Poole will struggle scoring like how Jimmy and Kyle did this entire series.
Then you factor in Draymond , Looney, and Otto Porter to neutralize Horford and RW3
With Iggy and GP2 set to return.....

Should be a good Finals and with all that’s been said in no way am I underestimating the c’s.
I just think it’s Steph’s year to finally get that MVP. An I don’t think Smart and Pritchard can do a damn thing about it

I still think Miami has a chance. They need the scoring punch from Herro. If he comes back, Miami is going to be playing Mariah Carey all week long!

Anyway, I think GSW can handle Boston. GSW actually has guys who can initiate and create shots. Unfortunately for Miami, Jimmy and Lowry seem gimpy and they had to rely on scrubs + Bam.

As long as the refs keep swallowing their whistles when Bam sets a moving screen, Miami will have a chance

Tatum/Brown are reminding me of Curry/Thompson, which have won 3 championships together. I'd like to think Ainge got lucky if he only drafted one franchise player. My worst fear now is them winning multiple championships together.

We definitely should be going the route of drafting our own superstars instead trading for them when they're past their primes. I wonder if we could even get a top 5 draft pick for AD at this point.
