Default It's time we start being realistic with our Warriors rankings

They are NOT the GOAT team. Victim of the moment. The NBA is simply watered down, to the extent of how it was in the 60s. Let's stop making excuses for LeFraud, he didn't lose to the GOAT team, he just shit the bed like the other 5 times.

You can make a case for the 2017 Warriors being top 5. No way they're better than the Celtics or Lakers of the 80s or Jordan's Bulls.

Seriously..

I've said it before and I'll say it again: replace kawhi with MJ and the spurs win it EVERY year (unless MJ gets bored and retires for a couple years)

Easily the GOAT team


If you ever want to be taken seriously when it comes to basketball, I advise you to not deny this.

Highest Teams ever via Ortg

1) 2017 Golden State Warriors: 115.6 (Championship)
2) 1987 Los Angeles Lakers: 115.6 (Championship)
3) 1992 Chicago Bulls: 115.5 (Championship)

Adjusted Offensive Rating

1) 2016 - 17 Warriors - 116.02
2) 1994 - 95 Magic - 115.90

eFG%

1) 2017 Golden State Warriors: 56.3
2) 2016 Golden State Warriors: 56.3
3) 2013 Miami Heat: 55.2

best teams ever by SRS

1) 1971 Milwaukee Bucks: 11.92 (Championship)
2) 1996 Chicago Bulls: 11.80 (Championship)
3) 1972 Los Angeles Lakers: 11.65 (Championship)
4) 2017 Golden State Warriors: 11.35 (Championship)

15-1 in the playoffs

Highest playoff net rating / +/- in history


Undeniable.

Luckily HOU themselves are a 71-win pace team with Paul in the line-up.

That seems to be a problem with all sports fans.

LeBron fans are just the loudest, at least behind a keyboard

Houston might be one the greater offenses of this era, but the fact they're up 3-2 against THIS Warriors team is ****ing sad.

GOAT team doe. Oh wait, Houston is the GOAT team now... My bad LeBron fans!

but we've been saying that for months, at least I have

The Rockets can easily be argued as better than any team in history with their mixture of star talent, chemistry, balance, and depth + extreme hunger (+ added motivation from a tragic event in their city)

2018 Rockets are very likely the best team in NBA history

They're like Dantoni Suns with defense. GOAT team indeed.

You've lost it a bit on this one.

For starters, people refer to the 17 Warriors as the GOAT team. Obviously these Warriors, with Iggy out, are not the GOAT team.

Iggy is a big part of what makes them borderline unbeatable.

I don't see how the 18 version of this team, with a key injury, somehow means they weren't in consideration for the GOAT team last year.

the rockets were like a 77 win team pace wise with their big 3 healthy, this isnt your normal contending team and why many people had them taking gs to 6. They dont look it right now offensively but they're a team that is better than quite a few championship teams.

Speaking of reacting in the moment, the 92 Bulls went 7 vs the knicks and 6 vs Cle and Por. The 87 Lakers went 7 vs the Mavs and Jazz. the 84 celtics went 7 vs the knicks. All these teams are worse than the Rockets. Dont completely discount the Warriors til they lose. There have been all time great teams that have been taken deep in series(i'm not even saying this year's team is all time great, last year's was better).
