Durant/Curry combined to shoot 92-96 from the foul line in the first round.

Well, here is to hoping that the Rockets catch fire for multiple games and at the right times.

the clipper series may have been a blessing in disguise... wake up call. Plus they should have some motivation left over analyzing how they played against houston last year.

Dubs in 7 .

Warriors in 6.

Durant is peaking at the right time. He was the difference last year and will be again this year.

Rocks simply dont have anyone who can bother him. Good luck throwing PJ Tucker at him all game


Warriors also have the defensive versatility to slow the stifle the Rockets attack for extended periods like the jazz did... and the GOAT offensive player/team..

Rockets may be the only team that people wouldn't root for over the Warriors because of how their MVP plays and because of the bitchy antics of their PG.




I don't care if the Dubs win it all this year but no one, no one who respects and likes/loves the game of basketball should want to see the Rocketeers win.

KD took a shit on the integrity and competitiveness of the whole sport, but everyone should want to see him/them win?

Read the post again. I said no one should want to see the Rockets win. Curry and KD don't have to do the job but it has to be done. Hell gimme the Spurs winning it all again for all I care.


And that narrative was so overblown, not to mention someone else did it before him in the same decade. The competitiveness has been lost for a long time now since the SuperFriends era started.

Yeah, but in actuality, no one should want to see the Warriors win, given my post.

No one should want to see a team win which 30 minutes after losing a game 7 of the NBA finals calls the best player in their conference for help.

Rooting for the Warriors means you root for having no back-bone and quitting. Rooting for them is rooting for an undaring, safe approach to life.

Even if you're a Rockets fan?

You would rather root for Harden?

At least the Warriors play basketball the right way, the way Harden and the Rockets play is an abomination i feel sick just watching them

Aren't you the one who called the cops when a guy slapped you in the face??


Soooooo rooting for the Dubs should be up your alley?



And rooting for the Dubs at least is rooting for an organization that cares about it's players and franchise and treats them equally. And runs it efficiently. Drafting superbly. Making sound transactions for the teams well being in the now and the future. They added a top tier FA because of the culture they had and established. I don't see anything wrong with that.
