Cause it's Giannis. You don't disrespect the future king of the league.

Also, he's basically the Bucks. He leads the team in points, rebounds, assists, blocks and steals. He's also top 20 of the league in all of them. Crazy shit.

Shit, pretty much. At this point I'm more interested in seeing who makes it out of the East. LeBron's gonna need to channel the spirit wave and tap into the fountain of youth to even stand a chance. They have their work cut out for them in the East this season.

If I recall correctly, everyone on Earth said that last year too (with Steph coming back from injury) and we all know what happened there... Then again, Kevin Durant is slightly better than Harrison Barnes, so maybe they have a chance. Still gotta get past the Blazers in the first round though... that's a tough out.

Nah, Warriors are going to win it all this year, no question.

3/4 best teams in the league are all in the West. Not sure why you're trying to make the East seem like anything special. Raptors and Celtics are spearheaded by frontrunners in the playoffs, Wizards could make it real hard vs the Cavs though.

The Warriors are head and shoulders above the competition in the West so it's expected that they'll make the Finals. In comparison, the Cavaliers have been looking vulnerable over the past few months. This will be the first time in a few years that other teams in the East have an actual shot at making the finals. We'll see if Bron and the rest can really turn on that playoff switch.

All I want to see is the Warriors not winning it all. Or some nice upsets to teams that aren't the Celtics. But it's the NBA and major upsets are rare and I fully expect the Warriors to win it.

Simple math tells me the Cavs have 3/4 of the best players in every single series in the East. You could argue derozan Lowry are slightly better than Love Kyrie and that's about it...

The finals were decided before the first game was played (love the NBA for this.... >: (...

Only Tor make a big push to change this fate with Tucker and Ibaka at the trading deadline and that still isnlt enough. GS is just miles ahead of everyone else in the league when they are playing with their full team, which leads me to my final point,

There were no major injuries to change this fate. Bumps along the road for sure, but nothing to change what is going to happen....

No there isn't . He would be a top 4 player in basically every single series in the East other than the Raptors. There only player id say for sure is better than Love as the second best player on a team is derozan.
LeBron auto is the best and second best players on teams better than Kyrie? Same thing..

Toronto is considered the 6.

6+6+6=18

18/6=3

I'm not saying Lebron is going to lose because I don't want to jinx anything, but based on results this is his worst team since his early Cleveland days.

That's just on paper, though. We'll see if there really is a playoff switch.

Im not saying the Cavs will win anything. But in many ways you have already jinxed yourself, just by having these bolded thoughts. You might have not said it, but you thought it. You fucked up! This is on you!

Look at Klay and Stephs game 7 numbers

That's why I wish they signed a legit big because it can easily happen again
But those open looks by Max Barnes really could have won them the title so I don't expect KD to get that shook
Or can he 🤔

The next rounds, they face the Hawks, who are similar to the Bulls in beating good teams and losing to bad teams. This creates a distortion where no one is sure about what is supposed to happen, but Bulls in 7.

Then, on the other side of the bracket, Schrodinger's Lebron has been solved, and it turns out that the Cavs are actually shit. The Raptors show that they are legit contenders, beating them in the ECSF.

That leads to a Bulls - Raptors ECF. In utter terror, the Raptors rebrand to the Huskies for the entire series, but the Bulls counter back by making TNT air all their home games. The last game is a coin-flip. Bulls in 7.

Then, the Bulls get to the finals, and at this point I don't really know or care
