ABC is about to lose a ton of advertising revenue.

That being said, I'm calling Warriors sweep.

They won’t sweep. No way.


They’re not playing the Cavs defense this time.

I like what the Raps have going but my mind is saying Warrirors. Despite not having homecourt, despite Kd being injured, despite looking vulnerable alot this year it's simple: they've been here and they just no how to win. Kawhi is the lone guy on their roster thats been there, oh and Serge but the rest wil be 1st timers against an all time opponent........

It all depends on KD imo. This could be a classic series like 2016 if he’s out. If not idk man. I think the Raptors defense is so good it would still technically be possible unlike the trashcan defense of the 17 and 18 Cavs that had no chance despite their offensive firepower. But it would probably take some miracles.

Your subconscious is showing. You already know how this is going to end.

It could be. The Raptors struggled and fought their way here, it wasnt easy so that favors them in the aspect of not running 90 mph into a brick wall. But Gs will still always have 3 of the 4 most dangerous guys in the floor even if Kd doesn't see a second of this series.

Lowry uses his body like CP3 - drive in, lower shoulder, move defender to create space. He'll be able to push Curry around easy.

Whether Durant plays or not, Looney/Bell/Jones/Jerebko will have a big role defending Kawhi off switches.

Yeah GS is so scary either way. I do expect Kawhi to have an all time great finals in terms of performance regardless of what happens.

vegas already coming out with betting lines.

Gap is surprising honestly if article is correct. Mainly this piece of info "In the past eight Finals, only last season's Cavaliers were larger underdogs to start than the Raptors." This is even with KD likely missing a few games

except i dont love em but i have no bad feelings about them

honorable squad w/o kd.



if raps take the first 2 at home w/o kd, why not

even if its tied and kd comes back, plenty potential for disruption
