    Kinda funny if OKC won, the talk woulda been "GSW lack size, and so and so is overrated".

    Golden state does lack size, and is overrated. Them championship heat teams where wade was healthy woulda put em in the trash fam.

    If OKC could find a way to somehow afford Mike Conley and move Russ to the 2 that would be a real good look imo.

    They'd have to trade kanter and let morrow walk to sign conley.Thunder could of beat the warriors the 3 point differential destroyed them the last 2 games warriors caught fire can't do nothin about that.Durant should sign a 2 year deal with an opt out like lebron and give it another run

    They should develop payne more so he can play pg wit russ at the 2 next season


    Thats what I was about to say, yeah OKC did some things wrong, shouldve closed out the series and ultimately ended up imploding but they also did a lot of good things that probably no other team could have done against Golden State.

    We can critique, breakdown each game ect but at the end of the day you really just have to tip your hat to Golden State and recognize that they're a very very special team who have two players who can make incredibly tough shots from 3, not much you can do about that

    You makin too much sense, Fam

    I'm calling it, Steph Curry is going for the legacy shot and he's taking this series I'm more than convinced this is the perfect situation he will thrive in... I work nights so I haven't seen all play by play but this is what Steph lives for... History... To be doubted and counted out is the perfect situation imo for the W's.. It will no doubt be the toughest match that Curry has had in his career and I see him silencing the doubters for his biggest hurdle in his career..

    The public are pounding the Thunder, but not so fast my friend... The Thunder are notorious for giving up the lead at the end of games assuming victory to eventually blowing late 4th qtr leads just behind Philly.. Also the disrespect towards Curry from Russ & Rant may be the icing on the cake for me... Curry is the last 🤬 I'd laugh at, now Steph will expose Russ' defense or lack thereof...

    I see it going like the reg season finale maybe not the GW shot, a nail biter no doubt, but Curry will respond and OKC will get frenetic and 🤬 up with turnovers... GS might not be able to fully slow down Russ & Rant, but they will lock down the supporting cast which will play into the Warriors favor while they shoot it decently enough to stay ahead and hold on for dear life... All the KD free agency talk will show face and this will be the reason KD bolts possibly in the offseason... Golden State responds in these situations I've been confident all series that it's not over... It's going, going, back, back, to Cali, Cali!

    Shots to my real 🤬 who know hoops... I gave y'all the chOKC paragraph pamphlet prior to game 6 and 🤬 didn't wanna take heed.. Y'all CS 🤬 really don't know 🤬 lmao

    The Thunder need to get a better 2-guard in the lineup that's capable of hitting open 3's and spacing the floor cause that Andre Roberson 🤬 just ain't gonna cut it

    Like others have said, Westbrook would be better at the 2. They need a consistent pg to facilitate.

    i dont get this...he now averages a triple double...your not bring up this when they are winning, or was up 3-1. the offense for the past few seasons seem to flow find..seems it only becomes a problem when they do not reach the finals?

    that more spells KD then Russell facilitating the ball to others? What you want Ibaka, kanta or waiters taken shots? KD needs to go get the ball, and like tommy said...the Thunder need to run him off screens.


    Yes russell aint a true point and can cause a lot of turn overs...but KD need to go get the ball..like i said before. jordan, shaq, or even kobe..wouldn't let that ish happened.

    I think Westbrook is a scorer first. Yeah, he can pass the ball too, which is why he has so many double and triple doubles. But there are times when games are close and he seems to panic. Durant plays soft too, aint no way around that. But i think Westbrook is thriving off his speed and athleticism. But you can tell his personality can affect his game negatively and others as well. I think with a true pg that can score as well, he still would have good stats. But when the game is on the line, he or KD could just focua on getting open and hitting their shot when their play called.

    that "true" PG is always a funny debate. they sure don't get you titles . scoring point guards get you to the promised land. name the champion PGs that were leading teams to rings.

    Chauncey
    Steph
    Tony Parker
    Isaiah

    ^^^ all scoring guards like Russ. he is fine where he at just has to improve decision making.

    i agree with everything you're saying....this part here. can Alpha Russ be ok with having to wait for the ball?...and KDs biggest problem is not going to get the ball in any way...

    Lebron damn near willed the Cavs to the title last year, this time he got his help

    Cavs in 6

    🤬 has forgotten this.
    The biggest factor x is .... JR SMITH and CHANNING FRYE. If they keep up lighting the 3 pts line up that consistent it will be a wrap.

    Cavs in 5

    i say try making russ a 2 and bringing in a veteran, good shooting pg. as others have said he does panic and go wild more when times seem to get rough and he needs to make decisions. people sayin kd didnt go get the ball, hard to take it sometimes when ur pg is busy attempting a wild wrong footed layup
