    Fantastic stuff

    This is why mj, Kobe, kd and kawhi are such beasts in the playoffs.

    If anything he's proving having teammates that show up trumps anything.

    The Raptors are proving just how much defense matters.

    Kawhi is an all time great player without a doubt tho. A true legend.

    My favorite shot of the year was in the GS-HOU series. It was game 3 or 4, and the Warriors were on one of their third quarter runs, unanswered because the Rockets kept missing threes. FINALLY, before it got too out of hand, Iman freakin' Shumpert pump-faked and drove to the free-throw line for a pull-up. Bang. Run stopped, momentum over. Ship stabilized. All from a simple 15-footer.

    It's sad that the state of the league has led me to seriously call an Iman Shumpert run of the mill midranger my favorite shot of the year.

    Morey probably called him to his office after the game and reamed him out and threatened to have him blackballed.

    Kawhi watching MJ videos for inspiration is paying off bigtime. Now imagine prime MJ in his place, warriors who?

    Durants midrange numbers were head and shoulders better thathan anybody else before his injury,volume AND efficiency wise.

    Kawhi isnt proving anything we already didnt know. Being a go to scorer in the playoffs is the most important skill a player can have

    Curry isnt a go to scorer. Hes a rhythm/streakshooter whose go to moves are completely predictable and worthless against tight finals defense.


    Curry cant hit a momentum shot to save his life. Theres thousands of guys I'd take over curry in the finals.

    for some reason a bunch of geeks were able to sway the entire league into dropping the "live by the 3, die by the 3" slogan

    there's a reason that for, the entire history of bball really, the 3 ball was seen a gimmick and that championships aren't won with it as the focus of the offense

    thing is, today EVERYONE is doing it so you don't got an 80s or 90s style team around to prove them wrong

    Its never that black and white

    3ball is more efficient and requires less energy

    It was always the future of basketball

    Defense is better than it's ever been

    Both the raps and warriors have a better defense than any team in the 80s or 90s by a long shot


    You cant get by anymore on 1 or 2 good things... you have to be elite at everything and the Raps are the team with the least amount of weaknesses. It's not like they just rely on midrange and post play like its the stone age


    Lol @ thinking the raps are a 90s team. They'd blow any 90s team out of the water

    The RAPTORS team is winning because of defense, threes, and free throws

    NOT because Kawhi has hit some midrange shots.
