Pelicans also have the better bench

No chance in hell Jrue repeats his performance against Warriors, Blazers perimeter defense was awful.
Klay is gonna limit him.

Pels in 6. Leggo.

Jrue is healthy physically and mentally for the first time in like 4 years. He shouldn't worry to much about guarding someone that doesn't dribble. Just don't let him get open.

I figured you were trolling, but I decided to bite

Anyway, no. Klay > Jrue. Jrue is playing amazing, no doubt. But he isn't a 30pts-in-a-qtr-potential type of player. You cant just use ppg as the only measuring tape. Klay defends better and is hot from 3. Not trying to discredit Jrue, but Klay is Klay, cmon.

Obviously Rondo is better than Liv. But Cook is playing really well, even better than Liv.

Also, you forgot Iggy and Dray. Dray > Mirotic by just a slim margin, I admit, and Iggy = Moore I suppose. Tho Moore has been playing well also.

But I would agree that Clark + Hill + Miller > West + Looney + Young, which kinda makes me thing about the size advantage GSW will have...

But I don't really care about >'s since it could be like a 10 > 4 situation or a 9 > 8 situation.

This Warriors Video Introduction may be the best-produced thing I've seen in basketball.

Wow....

Think it's a mistake GSW not playing a big man. Won't be able to grab rebounds.

Right away Davis scores. Don't have size on Davis. Will get crushed on boards.

Let's hope Marv is wearing his glasses so he can actually see who's doing what. He still gets it wrong half the time.

Davis should go right at Durant and get him in foul trouble. Durant can't stop him on the drive.

Marv and Webber.

Name a more retarded duo.

Webber certainly giving Marv a run for his money in the early going.
