    2016 took a miracle comeback, aided by an injured warriors team + a starting player suspension + a bailout by Kyrie.

    Nobody gives a [COLOR="Black"]f[/COLOR]uck about 2015.

    2016 easily had the highest concentration of luck and riggedness so I'll go with that.

    Yes definitely one of them anyway and 2016 was nowhere close to 2015 for anyone saying so. Cleveland was missing there second and third best player in 15. Warriors weren't missing anyone. Steph was healthy and as he said in his own words "back" and Draymond only got suspended for one game due to his own stupidity. Where was the bad luck at?

    2015 was an extremely lucky situation for the Warriors. They were playing like headless chickens against total scrubs like Mozgov, Dellavedova and the like. Kevin Love was intentionally injured by Kelly Olynyk a couple rounds prior, and Kyrie got injured in the middle of the first game and was out for the rest of the series. Lebron was in his "I can't shoot a jumper" year that he has every once in a while, which was even more favorable for them. Basically all the stars aligned, and had the Warriors lost, who knows if they win 73 and reach the finals again. The mental toll it would have taken on them would've been a game changer.

    The Warriors essentially made Mozgov 64 mil, let that sink in.

    The Cavaliers slowed the pace to a crawl and played very physical basketball as the officials allowed them to muck it up. Lots of pushing and shoving, jersey grabbing. They were ugly games mainly due to the officiating.

    Current Raptors
    All the injuries and players playing hurt on the opposing team throughout their run

    Plus the lucky bounce was the icing on the cake. They had the perfect storm and perfect matchups

    What people never mention is, they not only faced teams with injuries every series, they avoided playing their 3 toughest opponents in the conference due to either injury (Thunder), an extremely fluky first round matchup (Spurs), and an epic choke (Clippers)

    '07 Spurs would be up there. They were on the beneficial end of the controversial suspensions against the Suns, then due to the Mavs losing in the first round they got a laughably easy final two series against the Jazz & Cavs to win the title

    Raptors this year were also lucky but not on that level.

    Absolutely that Spurs team wasn't that good and is easily the weakest champions between those 5 Spurs titles.

    That was done intentionally because they were without their 2nd and 3rd best players against the fastest scoring team in the league.
