Cavs in 7, or GSW in 4. I’m debating with myself.

omar little, Wednesday, 30 May 2018 16:58 (five months ago) Permalink

Dubs were often terrifyingly creaky and saved by a number of fireball third quarters vs rockets and the cavs are worse but I will put nothing past lebron until he is officially retired which rules out a sweep

gritty tigger reboot (agent hibachi), Wednesday, 30 May 2018 17:00 (five months ago) Permalink

Unless two or more of their starting five can't play, due to injury, illness or nut-hunting, GSW has this. We all know it.

warriors in 4, just try to figure out the matchups from cleves pov you cant they literally have no one to defend any of the dubs big 3, cleve cld win game 4 i guess if the dubs decide to let them

that was the first time theyve been tested since Durant signing. And the rockets were built to beat them, and they should/could have. The cavs without Kyrie dont instill much fear but it's possible the warriors take it easy thinking they already passed the hard test. Cavs have to take game 1 to have a chance. If they dont, then they take game 3 and that's it imo. If Iggy is back and looks normal then I think this is a sweep.

when i actually cast my vote it's hard for me as a cle homer to vote anything besides a cavs win but i'm not optimistic at all, this cavs team isn't very good.

agree w/ agent hibachi tho i don't think it will be a GSW sweep, lebron will get at least one or two games, anything beyond that will require massive efforts from the rest of the cavs and i just don't see that happening. korver and love might light up for a couple games. jr is probably gonna be shit. would be cool to see tristan out-rebound steph unlike last time lol

marcos, Wednesday, 30 May 2018 17:12 (five months ago) Permalink

I think Warriors in 5 or 6.

Lebron to get first finals MVP on a losing team since Jerry West.

i say warriors in 6 tho i think i accidentally voted cavs in 6... cavs almost won both home games last year & tho they're worse now i think the warriors just seem ragged and out of sorts, and have actual structural problems w/ igou hurt.

J0rdan S., Wednesday, 30 May 2018 17:35 (five months ago) Permalink

warriors have more players they can play in this series. i think they might even go to zaza to start who generally does a great job vs TT

dubs in 4

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Wednesday, 30 May 2018 18:30 (five months ago) Permalink

There hasn’t been a sweep in the finals in 11 years, although last year was close. I would think that the Cavs could win at least one game.

Famous last words.

Jeff, Wednesday, 30 May 2018 18:39 (five months ago) Permalink

it won't be a sweep

marcos, Wednesday, 30 May 2018 18:40 (five months ago) Permalink

it might be, but dubs in 5 is probably the safest bet

k3vin k., Wednesday, 30 May 2018 18:43 (five months ago) Permalink

I’ll go dubs in 6 to account for the lebron goes bananas game and the up 3-1 dubs don’t bother taking care of the ball and three random cavs have great games and they drop one before closing it out game

gritty tigger reboot (agent hibachi), Wednesday, 30 May 2018 20:30 (five months ago) Permalink

Let’s guess brons stat line averages I’m going 37-10-8

it was closer to being a 6 game series than a sweep actually

J0rdan S., Wednesday, 30 May 2018 21:46 (five months ago) Permalink

yeah

sprout god (lag∞n), Wednesday, 30 May 2018 21:47 (five months ago) Permalink

Close in the sense that it was 3-0.

Jeff, Wednesday, 30 May 2018 21:48 (five months ago) Permalink

Not the closeness of any of the games.

Jeff, Wednesday, 30 May 2018 21:49 (five months ago) Permalink

cavs choked away game 3, easily cldve been 2-2 going back to oakland

sprout god (lag∞n), Wednesday, 30 May 2018 21:49 (five months ago) Permalink

Then it wouldn’t have been close, it would have been far. Close is when one team is on the verge of sweeping, which the warriors were for the time between game 3 and game 4. That is my definition of close. Let’s go to the replay.

Jeff, Wednesday, 30 May 2018 21:52 (five months ago) Permalink

Warriors in 7 if Iggy doesn't play. If he plays everything except game one, then Warriors in 6.

The normal NBA fix--who knows who they'll suspend for a game this year!--and LeBron going beast means that there will not be a sweep.

dubs in 2

G.O.A.T. rodeo (Clay), Wednesday, 30 May 2018 23:21 (five months ago) Permalink

remember how the cavs had deron williiams last year taking up minutes in the finals? never seent anyone more shook in my life.

they call me melo gelo (Spottie), Wednesday, 30 May 2018 23:21 (five months ago) Permalink

honestly i feel like maybe dubs in 1 or 0

i don't even remember who deron williams is

marcos, Wednesday, 30 May 2018 23:26 (five months ago) Permalink

yeah i was hedging bc its good to be conservative abt these things but i agree dubs in 0 xp

Number of full days off for the Warriors between the last game of the West Finals and Game 1 of the NBA Finals:
-2015 = 7
-2016= 2
-2017 = 9
-2018 = 2

For LeBron to win MVP the Cavs would have to take it to at least 6 games, maybe 7

rip van wanko, Thursday, 31 May 2018 04:16 (five months ago) Permalink

The only way Lebron wins an MVP is if KD completely shits the bed, and the chances of that are vanishingly small.
It was plausible before KD arrived cause Lebron had no direct matchup in the series you could point to. Now he has to at least appear to shut down KD and be monstrouson offense.

Kd stunk in game one but his numbers were ok-ish. Curry stunk last game shooting it and his numbers looked bad. I think Kd gets it again. Curry shoulda got it in 2015 tho.

This was Shaun Livingston in 2008. He was recovering from perhaps the worst basketball injury ever. People thought he’d never play again. He was talking about where he’d be in 10 years.

It’s been 10 years.

People are struggling with why this isn’t a travel, so I’ll explain:
His left is the pivot. He jumps just about off of both feet, but it would still be legal for him to lift off the right foot into the air. Not a travel as long as he releases the ball before left foot lands. pic.twitter.com/UFZm4xDMLG
