those teams were too reliant on a single player, those teams tend to run out of it in the playoffs, with cut rotations, more defensive attention.. but yea, valid point. I do think there are clear differences between those Cavs teams and this Warrior one.

That's 3 series with wrong predictions out of like more than 40 series. How is that supposed to be bad?

I don't really have that much faith in the Warriors to get the job done.


No, they should be favored because they were the clear cut best team in the league all year and have the best home court advantage in the league...and are playing a Cavs team without it's 3rd best player and it's 2nd best player likely not 100%.

This wouldn't be the biggest upset in NBA history or anything, but it would be a pretty big upset.

Cavs are +12.5 per 48 when LeBron is on the pine. Most stacked team ever. If they lose, LeBron drops out of top 50.

no it wouldn't... that just the OP trying to make something out of thin air

lebron winning another ring should never be considered an upset or surprise win. to bad his fans feel they need to downplay his skills by labeling his wins as upsets

A player who is proclaimed to be " the best in the world" has no excuses, NONE! bran stans desperate to give him all the credit for everything when things go right and blame everyone else when things go wrong, just like LEspn. How the hell can the best player in the league be an underdog pathetic d!ckriding stans

Mind coming back with a non-troll post? Seriously, what do you think about the Warriors being heavily favored? They are one of the best teams in recent memory.

Who is downplaying his skills? He took Knicks cast-offs, a former draft bust, and an undrafted PG to the Finals. No one else in NBA history could take that team the way he has to the Finals

the way silkk is putting it is that Cavs have 0 chance of winning, no matter what lebron and co does. So if the Warriors manage to lose, it'll be more of a choke on their part than lebron playing out of his mind.

If Cleveland wins the finals, Lebron makes the top 7 all time. I feel alot of people have him in their 12-17 range.

There is no way to sugarcoat a GS lost. NONE. You can point to Finals inexperience. I can point to a Cavs team missing its #3 option, 2nd option is crippled, and a bunch role players Cleveland got from s.hitty teams.
Irving is the best player on the team, Lebron is the sidekick.

Let me ask you something, are you mentally r.etarded? Because I literally said in my first post that Cleveland is going to win 5 games. Doesn't change the fact that the national media has them as HUGE UNDERDOGS, and GS has BY FAR a way more talented team.
