    2016 is tempting because they were a 73 win team with unanimous MVP, and all the talk "He got his feelings hurt I guess"

    but 2020 takes it. Clippers being the hyped team talking all the trash about the Lakers with shots like "This is his city" and all that stuff. Pat Bev with all the talk, and Marcus Morris yelling "You're going home" to Milsap. They played like a bunch of divas, and their stars choked big time in game 7 after giving up double digit leads 3 games in a row.

    And of course, the pressure of the Clippers franchise assembling their best team in history to beat the Lakers, and not even making it to the WCF :

    Probably 2010 Celtics choking a 3-2 series lead over the Lakers in the finals. Probably 2010 Celtics choking a 3-2 series lead over the Lakers in the finals. In the series, Paul Pierce was famously quoted for saying “We ain’t going back to LA” after Celtics got an early lead in the series. Then they lost the last two games and came back to LA

    but the 2016 warriors-cavs will go down in history as the worst one.
    not only because it was the finals
    but because it was the heavily favored team with the best win-record in NBA history
    This, plus GS had the only unanimous MVP in history.

    Clippers. That sorry team blew double digit leads in all the closeout games. That was never done before. Warriors had their airhead PF suspended for being a douche...

    Clippers, the team that is favorited to win the chip this year blowing 3-1 lead is the worst. You have PG, one of the MVP candidate last year, and Kawhi, most people that treat him like the best player in the NBA.

    They literally lose to a young hungry Nuggets team, each game also losing more than 10 points lead.

    2016 OKC vs Warrior, both team are on top of their game, and OKC can't stop game 6 Klay was the problem.

    2016 Warriors vs Cavs, that lead shifts back to Cleveland, were Lebron and Kyrie put on a show and take over, both team are incredibly talented and the Warriors have to beat the best player on the planet.

    Meanwhile this year the Clipper supposted to be the heavily favorite over Nuggets but they just can't seal the deal.

    OKC were heavy underdogs. Most didnt even think theyd beat the Spurs

    this goes to Warriors/Cavs or Clips/Nuggets. Since there was suspension and Adam Silver tinkering along with injury issues for the first series im going with Clips/Nugs

    Clips were -1300 to win one of the heaviest favorites to lose in the past 20 years. Its not like Denver got lucky and squeaked out wins. They flatout dominated the last 3 games and Murray even said they were gonna do it and they did

    Game 7 they completely folded and shit the bed too

    Overall it's the 2016 finals.

    But for an individual player? It doesn't get any more embarrassing than blowing a 3-1 lead, shooting 10-31 in your last home game, then joining the team you blew a 3-1 lead to in the offseason.
