Iguodala was the Warriors best player throughout the finals. He stepped up massively when Curry was struggling until the last 2 or so games.

James of course carried the Cavs. Love and Irving being hurt meant they had to rely on 2 ex knicks to help Lebron and Mozgov. Never a recipie for success.

Lebron is a great player on the court but he really fails hard with his antics. And this BS MJ vs Lebron stuff needs to end now and forever. MJ is better.
Yes, James sure carried Cavs and they were really unlukcy. What are the odds of getting not just 1 but 2 potential All-star players injuired in the final.
So far - and for a long time to come - MJ will remain the indisputable best even NBA player. Not even Kobe or Magic Johnsen are/were of his class. But at least Kobe did not "destroy" part of his career by opting for Baseball :cool:

I was surprised the Lakers opted for guard D'Angelo Russell rather than center Okafur. If Town hadn't been picked by the Wolves they may have gone for a center though.

Great first week of free agency for the Spurs. Landing LaMarcus Aldridge, keeping Leonard and Green and Duncan signing a new short deal. Add Tony Parker and that's an amazing starting five.

COYS!

DeAndre Jordan shows alittle bit of uneasyness about signing with the Mavericks. Clippers pounce, and are holding him hostage in his house. Refusing to let him see or talk to his agents or the Mavericks. Laugh out loud funny:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

Love out of the game tonight, not good news for Cavs. Think it could be 0-3 after today.

Warriors go 3-1 up so I think you've got that spot on, Cavs have shown no signs that they can get anywhere near winning at GSW home court.

The Warriors are a terrible matchup for 90% of the league, the only teams that matchup well are Utah, Milwaukee, OKC and the Clippers.

The Cavs roster isn't good enough to compete with most of the tops teams in the West and they need to restructure it in the off season.

In the East I hope Boston can turn their many picks into very good players so that they can compete.

To be fair, this Warriors team have been breaking records left right and centre so no real surprised that not many teams can live with them. Curry shoots 3 pointers like most players shoot free throws.

Lebron isn't getting any younger, wonder if he regrets leaving the heat as with him they may have been able to compete with the Warriors these past 2 seasons.

All credit to Steve Kerr and his team but Cleveland can only blame themselves. OKC gave Golden State a more even series but then they froze when 3 - 1 up.

Lebron must regret leaving but he's kind off stuck there. I've got no sympathy for him.

Cavs force thegame 6, Green was a big miss for the warriors. And LeBron and Kyrie put up some great numbers. Hard to maintain that though, don't think it will go to game 7.
