Look what's happened to Cleveland without Lebron...Ö They are the laughing stock of the NBA. He single handedly made them great. They had an awful team last year and still made it to the finals and if not for a complete bone headed play at the end of game 1 Cleveland would have won. Golden State wouldn't be what they are without Curry no doubt about it, but they wouldn't be dead last in the league like Cleveland. Beating Curry, Thompson, Durant and company is a tough task for a one man team.

That is the point I am trying to make! Lebron can carry a team on his back..... Curry in my opinion can't. Simple as that. Without those injuries Cleveland probably wins that series. A healthy Cleveland team they beat Golden State 3 years ago.

Curry lives and dies with the 3 point game. When he is on nobody in the league can stop him. However when he is off, he gets rattled and all goes to hell with his game. Happened quite a bit in the Raptors series actually which is a big reason they won in 6 and if not for an epic Raptors collapse in game 2 they would have won in 5.

It's a shame he got hurt a couple years ago when they played Golden State. I think the Spurs could have given them a really good series. San Antonio reminds me of the Detroit Red Wings..... Constantly make playoffs but not a threat like they once were lol..... Though Detroit hasnt made playoffs in a while now.

I was rooting for Golden State. Not because I like them, but I hate Drake. Drake is a massive Raptors fan. Anything that makes Drake happy needs to be exterminated immediately.



I'm petty like that.

Kawhi and bron have overlapping skill sets. Don’t see them ever playing together. GS didn’t fall off much without KD. So ok him gone means Steph gets more shots and gets into a better rhythm? I think they are as good without him. They needed Klay though. To be fair love missed almost all of this season, Kryie was gone, and if Boston hadn’t beaten the Bucs last year I doubt the Cavs would have gotten through them. The cavs has an awful record this year. But they played a lot of good teams really hard. Don’t think it will get them anywhere anytime soon, but you had to be ready to play against them.

I just can't get too excited about Toronto winning any championship and the NBA lost me when Michael Jordan retired.

Every team that sucks and has no expectations plays hard, especially against top teams. I mean the C's would go into Golden State and beat them with little IT as their best player, but they were still obviously light years away from being as good.

That is the point I am trying to make! Lebron can carry a team on his back..... Curry in my opinion can't. Simple as that. Without those injuries Cleveland probably wins that series. A healthy Cleveland team they beat Golden State 3 years ago.

Curry lives and dies with the 3 point game. When he is on nobody in the league can stop him. However when he is off, he gets rattled and all goes to hell with his game. Happened quite a bit in the Raptors series actually which is a big reason they won in 6 and if not for an epic Raptors collapse in game 2 they would have won in 5.

Would have won? They got swept. lol. If you take a great player off any team they will get worse. Lebron is busy running around from team to team crying about how much help he needs. Say what you want about Golden state, but they are all pretty much home grown, and KD going there is no different than Lebron trading the team to get AD this year or going to Miami and recruiting Bosch. Lebron is not carrying anything. The east is a joke, and they had enough defense and double doubles from Kevin love that if a good player like LeBron is there they can make a run, but LeBron was replaced by Osman and Brandon Knight? I mean come on. If KD went there, they are right back in the thick of things, plus its rebuild time, and you have to be either really good or really bad before you can get anything so lets just say the motivation to carry on after losing LeBron was not great.


Lebron is a great player, top 5 all time, but he is very calculated in what he does. He is not a I will come save you kind of guy. He left Cle to make a team to win a title, came back to cle with Miami got old and cle had some good young talent, then bolted again when that talent left to another team with good young talent, that didn't work, so he traded them away from stars. So lets ease up on him carrying teams to titles.
