It's hilarious how WWE this is.

People now hate Golden State that lebron haters are actually slowly wanting to root for him. The style of play has bothered a lot of people but they do have an ultimate advantage and they exploit it.

The CAVS when they play at full strength are beautiful to watch. They have inside outside game that is more "throwback"

Golden State is like a modern day NBA2K game. How many of us have been down 10-15 points in the video game only to shoot 15 3's and time the trigger to make them.

I do think OKC brought out the blue print to limit them, the issue is you have to have lengthy Ariza that can roam and play man defense.

If I were Cleveland, I would double Klay Thompson and have one defender dedicated to Curry at all times. Keep your big man in the paint with your PF quick enough to switch but get back to the basket (Lebron, Tristan)

No Kobe fan or real fan of basketball in general could ever root for LeBron.

I prefer Lebron, who shoots 20% outside 5ft.

you guys are sad .. talking about how everything is "cheap". you're acting like this is some fluke shit, like they came out of nowhere and are just getting lucky lol. Theyve been doing this for years, are proven champions, just broke the regular season record, and came back from a 3-1 deficit against an ATG team.. all this with everybody and their mothers knowing that they would be shooting 3's and doing everything in their powers to stop it. they just cant.


It's actually refreshing to see a team that only tries to put the ball in the hoop.. Curry has the least FTs for a 30 ppg scorer ever, and there's nobody on the warriors that consistently gets bailed out with flops and rim runs.


you guys basically crying that warriors are too skilled and have shattered cielings nobody even saw. they are the evolution right now.

You are narrow-minded and always will be.

Lebron and Kobe are better than Curry. At least their games are well rounded.

They exploit the new rules and do it incredibly. I think some people argue that their brand of basketball at times can be just as cringe worthy as a FT shoot fest. When you see Curry and Klay move inside the 3 line only to see them move 2-3 steps back, it can be argued it's not that fun to watch.

Bs they have a terrible offense that jacks up contested 3s that they make more than miss cause of 2 elite shooters.

Curry just put up a 30/5/7 season... How is he not well rounded?

Not to mention that season was better than any Kobe or Bron had.


I don't get the hate for the Warriors brand of basketball. It wins games, it is a new, refreshing brand of ball we haven't seen, a PG is leading a team to championships since the first time in forever, a team that hasn't won many championships in the past, and led by an all round good guy in Curry.

So they shoot a bunch of threes? Who cares? Do what you're good at. Since when is it cheap, or considered flukey to do that? People always loved seeing a guy catch fire from beyond the arc. Now... you just get to witness it a hell of a lot more since the guy is so damn good.

what new rules are they exploiting? taking step back 3s over and over isnt taking advantage of any "new rules".

Todays new rules are meant to allow penetration by little guys into the paint, and give them favorable calls if they flop.. its why 5'9 isaih thomas can be an all star in this league. There's absolutely nothing in the rules they are taking advantage of.. theyre just making impossible shots over and over and over. and making haters furious because theres nothing anybody can do to stop it but pray they miss.

Excellent post, especially the large.

Would much rather see Curry bombing threes than a guy driving to the basket just looking to get to the foul line.

30/5/7 is better than any season Kobe/Lebron had

raw numbers-wise Kobe and Lebron both averaged more points and rebounds in a season and efficiency-wise Lebron has better seasons

Lebron's 27/8/7 on 57% shooting/64%TS with a 31.6 PER .322 WS/48 > Curry's 30/5/7 on 50% shooting/67%TS with a 31.5 PER .318 WS/48

and Bran had 2 other seasons with above 31 PER

and we didn't even mention their ability on the defensive end

we don't even need to dive into the Playoffs

Oh, I'm sorry, the lack of enforcing rules. The moving screens, the handchecking you can't do. In general, they exploit that a high level. Don't be upset. Please don't disrespect Isaiah Thomas by your point. Bobby Jackson and Him aren't that different despite being from different eras.
