Cue LKB coming in here tomorrow and pretending like he expected this all along and that you guys are all idiots and that he's never a prisoner of the moment like you peons and nevermind that he never actually makes predictions.

 

Predicting LKB acting like a know-it-all?  What are you gonna predict next, the sun rising? :ols:

If the Warriors win tomorrow night that's probably the last game I watch this year. Another Cleveland/GSW Finals is just stale and the Warriors will win in 5-6 games. Houston without CP3 could be interesting. 

Agreed, I'll consider it if Houston does pull it off and CP3 missed multiple games in the finals.  I'm not holding myself to watching game 7 if it gets out of hand.  This is a setup for a whole lotta "I told you so", I'll have nothing good to add when it comes to that point.

 

I'm disgusted that the last three teams are 1) the best player and a bunch of hand puppets, 2) a team that lives and dies by ISO threes, and 3) a team with so much talent they don't have to give a **** and are still a dynasty.  It's a big reason I wanted Boston in there at least, they belong in what I thought the conversation for a championship team should look like, not this crap.

The NBA is predictable.  It does a good job selling the farce that it's actually competitive, but it isn't.

As expected, LeBron is a master of the game. Granted, the Celtics win easily if either one of Hayward or Irving play but they fell apart in the big game.

 

Kyrie would've helped the most because he's been there before. The rest of them have not.

I see now everybody is acting like they all just knew Cleveland was going to the finals despite their 4 seed, historically bad defense, how bad they looked for large massive portions of the playoffs and missing their second best player in game 7 on the road 

 

ok

I'm not interested in the Finals this year - just another repeat of last year with no new or interesting storylines. Really wish Boston could have not picked the biggest game of the year to shoot 1 of 7 thousand from 3.

Hasn't he been saying that the NBA has a way of making the predictable result exciting or something like that?  Lebron vs the Warriors in the finals after seven game series that looked like they'd go the other way seems to fit that description.

You're not always right, but I need to listen to you more.  Hope is a hard thing to kill, but the very concept is a reminder you might be wrong.

Not really. It's the one league where all the fans are okay with having 4 relevant teams every year. Thank God we aren't that way with the NFL.

LeBron haters (not you guys) being as insufferable if not more than LeBron is about as 2018 as it gets.

When the Warriors play the Cavs again you will all watch it and you know it. 

 

To me that's like saying if there's another Star Wars film you'll all go see it. Well, I passed on seeing Solo this weekend because it just looks bland. Right now a Warriors/Cavs Finals sounds just about as appealing as Solo lol. I'll have no problem skipping that series and catching up on some of my shows I've been neglecting.

They sold their soul for ratings. The NFL didn't have to.

When Lebron is facing veteran juggernauts like Oladipo, Derozan and Ho-Ford are you really shocked they're back in the Finals? Let's be real lol. When Boston lost Game 6 I knew they were dead in Game 7. They're just too young to handle that kind of game and when you have the veteran leadership of Horford who's been Lebron's doormat the last 3 years (now 4 lol) are you really going to bet on his team?

I did.  Perhaps I'm not as crazy and agenda-driven as you all think.

Watching arguably the player ever go against one of the greatest teams ever assembled 

 

greatness all over to behold and appreciate 

He did that last year and almost got swept, WITH Kyrie.

 

Image result for is that your final answer

LKB talks out of both sides of his mouth.  He'll pretend to be objective but he's a closet Boston and Houston Stan and he was crowing about them particularly hard this year.  He's as big a prisoner of the moment as anyone and he was pulling for Boston to win because he wants me to be wrong about the predictability and lack of competitiveness of the NBA.

I didn’t say anything about him winning. Still was entertaining to watch all these amazing players at the peak of their powers and seeing Durant get his ring

Once the Stanley Cup final starts, it will be like the NBA finals aren't even taking place.
