    From Zarko Cabarkapa to Jonas Jerebko, its a team. I'm more worried about Iguoadala than anybody. Born in 65, grew up in the Richmond District, shopped at Phil Smith's shoe store as a kid. This is all fleeting, but what a great run. Better without KD. Only needed for Lebron's Cavs. Better watching without him.

    Also if Harrison Barnes could have made a bucket, and Draymond didnt dick kick people, Warriors would really be looking at 5 straight.

    Run TMC! And Spree with the choke-out!

    Robert Parash for the rights to Joe Barry Carrol! Purvis Short under appreciated scorer. Mean Larry Smith. Billy Owens? Great at Louisville, but not an NBA impact player. Chis Webber?! Actually great- and sad to watch when he went to Sacramento. So yeah, no fucks given!

    A sad fact forgotten is that attendance at the Coliseum has always been great, good times or bad.

    Warriors have won three titles in four Finals trips, but face their first road disadvantage.

    Dubs 15-7 last 4 Finals. Won a few road games but Toronto is no joke. Dubs should be playing like they need to win Game 1.

    You could be right. In pro sports they always use this medical language of a "strain" to make it sound like less of a big deal, but that still means he tore his calf muscle, it just wasn't a complete tear.

    Toronto is certainly no joke - I just don't think home court makes that big of a difference in this series. FWIW, Toronto is one of Curry's favorite places to play. There are certain courts that just suit different players. He doesn't seem to play well at the Staples center, for example, although LA night life could be a factor there (even when the Lakers / Clippers suck, they have a really good record on Sunday afternoon games at home).

    Houston said to be willing to trade (nearly) anyone to reconstruct roster. Maybe Morey is panicked and is afraid he wont be able to afford a GI Joe with a Kung Fu Grip.

    Personally, I'm here for the Smashmouth/Drake beef.

    https://twitter.com/smashmouth/status/1132730834253799424

    Bay Area "celebrities" really coming out of the woodwork for this one haha

    Honestly, just hopng for a good 6-7 game finals. It would be cool if Toronto won too. I just really don't want to see a sweep or easy series in the Finals again.

    The Lakers are the only team dumb enough to take on that CP3 contract... but it makes sense in the LeBron tradition of forcing your franchise to take on bad contracts with players he likes.

    I refuse to discount the dumbness of the Knicks.

    I don't understand the Laker's win now mentality when Lebron has 4 years left on his contract and they have (had) plenty of young talent. Is it Lebron driven? Any trade for CP3 would be a mistake.

    Boogie is active for tonight's game, does he get any playing time?

    Because LeBron likely retires after that 4th year (three years left on his deal), if his body holds up that long. He turns 35 towards the beginning of next season and has a crazy number of miles on his legs when you include all of those playoff games. So they should be in win now mode.

    Boogie will likely get in there for a bit. How long will probably be a "see how it goes" scenario.

    that's now getting a lot of radio play in Houston as the rockets are not denying and cant talk much before the end of the season. imo, the rockets are stuck with the harden iso ball until he's past his prime as he's too hard to move and so is cp3.

    imo, Houston and Oklahoma city have the same problem; their ball dominant guards are too ball dominant unlike golden state and Portland whose guards share the wealth.

    No. They don't. If Ball, Kuzma and Ingram weren't in LA, nobody would talk about them.

    Two of those guys were top 2 picks and Kuzma was the steal of the 2017 Draft. Sure, they get more coverage because they're in LA (just like Brown and Tatum in BOS) but that's arguably still the best core of 21-23 year olds in the league.

    I had Lebron's contract length off, still with 3 more years they could deal with a slightly longer-term vision than they seem to have. But yeah, it would be riskier given Lebron's age. Either way, I'm enjoying the dumpster fire.

    Speaking of dumpster fires, Houston is trying to start one it seems. So Morey fires a bunch of D'Antoni's assistants... without consulting him... and today D'Antoni turned down a contract extension! lol... this is going to get interesting.

    Seriously, how dumb is it to say everyone is available? No way is Harden going to be happy about that, and moving him isn't likely going to happen, so now you've pissed off your franchise guy?

    If Houston was desperate to change things up - which they clearly are - the real move is to fire D'Antoni and hire someone like Alvin Gentry who understands the Warriors' ball movement offense. Houston has the types of players who could do well in a system like that. Obviously Harden isn't as scary of a threat from three like Curry so you won't have the same space, but still... they could do something similar with that roster, perhaps playing a bit more off Harden's driving ability.

    Harden too hard to move? You are smoking some really good stuff if you believe that.

    And even with Chris Paul on his team averaging 8.2 apg, Harden still averaged 7.5 apg, good for 8th in the league. Houston's problem isn't their offense or ball dominant guards or whatever, it's that they don't have a good enough team. Harden, Paul, Gordon, and Capela is a nice 4, but after that they just don't have enough to compete with the Warriors. Which is nothing to be ashamed of, that's the case for almost anybody. If we wipe the earth of the last 5 years of the Warriors, the Rockets probably have a title or two.

    I think the "every one is available" is one of those CYA lines, and I doubt Harden is going to be pissed at it.

    As for Gentry, I'm not convinced he would improve things (I doubt it). And I'm not convinced D'Antoni is the wrong guy. They're maximizing what they have, IMO, but they're just not good enough.
