Ha! Dealing with stupid front office moves and a sub standard roster (even without injuries), will be the first two things on his job description at the Knicks. I'm glad they haven't just gone with Phil's lackey Rambis though.

 

Hope Hornacek goes well, good luck to him if he gets the gig.

Thunder absolutely killing the Warriors.

Draymond likely looking at some time off for kicking Adams square in the nuts.

Early in the 4th, it was 7 or 8 points.

I thought a comeback was possible.

But they've been smacked in the last couple of games now and finished badly.

Can't see them winning 3 straight.

Well Cavs smashed the Raps.

Will some home cooking do the same for the Warriors?

I don't think so.

The Warriors losing to OKC didn't see that coming. Maybe Durant stays now.

Cracking game, series deserves a Game 7.

Klay kept them in it, Steph finished it off.

Yeah slight favorites. You can't count out a team with Curry and Thompson

Read an interesting rumour, if the Cavs win, Lebron has delivered the championship to Cleveland he promised and will then head to Lakers. A few other free agents supposedly waiting for finals and this scenario to play out before committing.

Lakers with Lebron, Carmelo and Durant and No 2 Pick...

 

Dreamin!

Guaranteed another Aussie championship ring.

 

Have been watching the Believeland doco on ESPN (it's good), not usually a Cavs fan but wouldn't mind seeing them get this one, but love watching GSW.

 

Not too fussed, as a former Sonics fan main thing was not having Thunder win, they still haven't really added much to the squad other then what Seattle drafted (ie Durant, Westbrook, Ibaka).

Odds are already out for 2017 champs, might be worth putting $10 on the Lakers at these odds

I'm hoping for a Cavs win, but in 7 to keep it interesting

I can't see how it won't be interesting.

Cavs should be get it, maybe in 6.

If it goes to 7, GSW wins.

Will watch a few games before going all in one way or the other.

 

Following Bron Bron as I have previous 6 years.

Interesting points on The Jump this morning.

 

Cavs have Kyrie and Kevin for this years Finals which they didn't last year.

That should be a good thing but what they bring on offence they lose on defence, to the point you probably can't have them together on the court much. Steph will get clear shots being guarded by Kyrie and Draymond will power past Kevin.

 

Gotta fancy GSW if Cavs turn it into a shootout. Reckon they are better keeping it scrappy and getting Delly hassling Steph.

The Cavs are a better team this year, no doubt.

K Love/LeBron/Kyrie will give them ~80/30/20.

If C Frye/JR Smith can hit from deep, they pose a good threat.

 

Not Klay/Steph threat, but enough to spread the floor to give more driving space for LeBron/Kyrie

 

I wouldn't be surprised to see a few 120-115 type results.

Right. Love (son of ex NBA player Stan, nephew of original Beach Boy, Mike), is a strong forward

who can rebound and score points. That would have to make a difference.

 

Delly though needs help to get through a 6-7 game series at that level of intensity.

 

Coaching. Last year I gave David Blatt benefit of doubt, this year he's not there. Arguably

Le Bron calls most of the plays, the coach has always been secondary. But Steve Kerr/Luke Walton

give Sac some advantage.

 

Hope it goes 7. Hope the Cavs win.

Read this morning that Mark Cuban, owner of the Mavs, also owns the trademark "city of champions"

 

If the warriors get up in this series, and the San Jose Sharks (go Sharks!) get up in the Stanley cup (ice hockey), then any t-shirts, caps, memorabilia etc that uses the phrase "city of champions" will be paying a licence fee to Mark.

 

Only in America...

Sharks down 0-2 in the series. Sid "The Kid" Crosby dominating so far.

 

Warriors should win. Far too quick for the Cavs. Is anyone coaching the Cavs? No adjustments?

LeBron.

"Coach" Lue is an honorary title, kind of like Coach Spo was in Miami.

Cavs are getting OWNED.

Not sure what miracle they can pull out to turn it around.
