Re: 35 yo Wade and 28 yo Rose - the Cavs have zero excuses
Cavs would be the overwhelming favorites if it wasn't for the Warriors. The Warriors probably still have the better TEAM. Yes the Cavs have a lot of big names on their team now but we don't know yet how that will work out on the floor and whether Rose, Wade and IT can stay healthy.
Also the Warriors have the much better coach, which makes a huge difference too. Therefore imo the Warriors are still the favorites.
