If he stays, cool

Either way, thanks for the chips, but it was and always will be Curry's team

Giannis wuz robbed














Sike. The MVP hasn’t actually meant the player that helps your team win the most for a while now. It’s whoever has the best stats, so hats off to Harden. They really should just call it most outstanding player since that’s what is really is.

And how many would the Bucks have won without Giannis?

The Rockets will be fortunate to wind up with a 3 seed, while the Bucks have the best record in the league. How many times did the Rockets best the Bucks this year again? Oh wait.

It actually doesn’t matter since neither of them is likely to win a title, but we shall see. I don’t know what was confusing about my post though- Harden clearly had the better season.

You think they’ll beat the Raptors in the ECF? IDK man. Giannis is amazing but the Raptors have lots of playoff experience and a healthy Kawhi.

If the Rockets have to face OKC in the first round, and then grind out two series on the road against Denver (at altitude) and then the Ws, I don’t like their chances very much.

So yeah, forgive me for going out on a limb and predicting another Ws title. How absurd of me.

^ interesting graphic. Looking forward to seeing what muh hawks can do next year after a nearly average second half this year.

Can't wait for the playoffs. The West should be a gauntlet again, and for the first time in years the East should have some fun matchups starting in the second round.

I said “neither is likely,” but thanks for putting words in my mouth.

Of course the Bucks and Houston have a chance to win. So do the Raptors. Given the way the Ws have played throughout the season, it’s hard to really tell which team will show up, but I’m guessing effort and defense are going to be significantly higher, because they weren’t exactly stellar during the regular season last year, and look what happened.

^^ fair enough. The Ws want first round matchups with the Clippers (light travel, although Beverley scares me), Spurs (they’re horrific on the road, but Popp), and then OKC (PG3/Russ nuff said) in that order. Obviously Houston is the biggest threat to the Ws in the west, and it’ll be a tight series, given how close they’ve played each other in the Finals last year. But the regular season series this year could have easily been 2-2 had KD gotten that shot off before the buzzer way back at the beginning of the season. Just like the Rockets could’ve beaten the Ws last year had they not missed 27 3s. Or had a healthy CP3. Whichever.

Tbh, it’s been a semi lackluster regular season for the Ws, and I’m so happy it’s finally playoff time.

But yes, the Rockets playoff success is dependant on 1) Paul's health and 2) avoiding any historic cold streaks

Magic Johnson resigns from Lakers.

This is definitely a shock to me. It's a good move for the Lakers franchise, as he was terrible at running the organization. He did absolutely nothing right for them. I'm sure LeBron won't like it because it very likely means Walton will stick around.

Blazers and Nuggets have easy games to jump
Need both to lose.

Ugh. 14 pt 4th quarter lead, leave PG open last possession, late Harden missed FT (only one of the night) and missed open 3





Well all and all pretty fun season considering all the injuries. Just wish we were better positioned for the playoffs since CP3s doesn't have many more seasons

Curry has turned into a bitch.
Taunting refs after a made 3 because he doesn't agree with a call.
Missing 5-threes in a row and then doing a shimmy dance when he makes the 6th.

I’m not a warriors fan. But to be fair, is there a sports team that has experienced their level of success and not gotten super annoying to outside fans? Maybe the Spurs during their run? Otherwise teams like that basically always become annoying and easy to hate.

Just stop already.

The Ws rank #1 in most techs awarded, they're #28 in FT attempts, and #22 in fouls per game.

I haven't complained much about the officiating and most rational Ws fan don't either, but c'mon dude.

You care so much about this. So you can 'win' this one. The Ws are total jerks/crybabies.

Wanna talk about Lebron's epic failure of a season instead? That's way more entertaining to me.

I can't believe you posted those stats like the Warriors are getting techs bc of the foul disparity instead of because they have Green, Durant and Boogie. Those guys ALWAYS get techs.

Anyway i came here to point out that AD gave a televised interview claiming he has no control over the clothes he wears, what a douche.

NOTE: I didn't bring up the officiating, justin did. And then when a non-warrior fan pointed out the obvious, it devolved into this BS. As usual.

Seriously guys, it's the playoffs. Can we talk about the matchups or anything else?

I think it's kinda funny that Portland could potentially lose on purpose to force a OKC/HOU matchup by deliberately losing their game. They essentially get to decide their fate and several other teams since OKC plays first.

They just don’t want to get swept. Better to play a competitive 1st round and then get trashed by the Ws than swept by OKC who they went 0-4 against. Rockets should be able to handle OKC, but it might go 5-6.
