Like last year's Finals, I want one of two scenarios to happen regardless of the team:

1) one team sweeps the other

2) one team wins in 7 after being down 3-0

Preferably the Warriors blowing another 3-1 lead?

It would be funny, but I think the other two scenarios would be even better IMO.

*Javele McGee becomes open for the game winning three*

*Curry passes it to him*

*Javele takes it*

*Ball bounces off the rim*

*Hits Javele in the face*

*Cavs win the finals*
*Warriors blew another 3-1 lead*

Boom. Best scenario ever.

Kevin Durant got injured. I hope he gets better but Warriors ain't gonna win the title now if he's out indefinently.

 

This is what happens when you take the easy way out.

What easy way out?  Are you not a fan of KD to the Warriors? 

I picked the Cavs to win before the year started, stickin to it

Adding Korver, Williams, and Now Bogut should honestly put them over the top. That team is stacked. Even if KD is healthy I'm with you.

Sure, the Warriors can score out of the building, but the Cavs can keep up with them as they have a plethora of good three point shooters themselves(Kyrie, Lebron, Love, Frye, Korver, J.R, Liggins, hell Deron Williams should only get better), and can play physical as well, can EASILY out-rebound the Warriors, and they happen to have a guy named LEBRON JAMES

I think the spurs have a real chance to clinch the west now.

The Warriors lost their 31st game ever to the Bulls. The Warriors blew a 3-1 Lead and likely won't win the NBA finals without Durant.

 

 

NEVER FORGET.

Nurkvik is another  Sabonis. His great passing and D gave the Blazers a  much needed win against the Thunder

I've heard really good things about him. I think we have 3 first-round picks so hopefully we use them all because I'm not impressed with Turner and Crabbe who got paid big time.

I could see it. But if Durant comes back strong I don't.

 

That said, I think the Cavs win a 7 game series. To get Durant, the Warriors sacrificed a lot of depth. The championship teams of recent years(Heat, Kobe-Gasol Lakers, Celtics Big Three, All the Spurs Teams, Shaq-Kobe Lakers, Pistons, etc, all had good depth players. This Cavs team is one of the deeper teams of recent memory.

 

Even with a healthy Durant I think they can go toe to toe with the Warriors.

On a serious note, as someone who lives close to Denver I REALLY like Jokick's game. He's not gonna be special, but he could be an all star

Multiple triple doubles by a big man at 21 yo and on very young and inexperienced team are pretty special in my book.

Yeah, I think he's a future piece to build around, but I think that both KAT and Embiid(if he can stay healthy) have all time great potential. 

 

I could see Jokic as a several time all star and hall of famer, but not a game changer.

 

I love Jokic though. Most unappreciated player in the game today by far.

Thanks for Nurkic though! Was never a big Plumlee fan at all even though he did nice things.

All this time I thought you were a Nugs fan, but either way I was blown away that he's ONLY 22 years old.

Lmao. Just 58 seconds for Bogut and his season ends. This is sad.  Still have the cavs though. This injury is ultimately meaningless as the Cavs were doing pretty good without him. It sucks, as he's a good rebounder/defensive presence but still.
