Exactly.

Because neither Lebron or Kyrie or the rest of their team play any kind of defense.

You can't beat a team like the Warriors with an offensive mentality, you have to sacrifice your offense and play the best defense of your life.

Both finals series should've been much more competitive than they were, but the Cavs played with zero defensive intensity.

I remember there was a stat that they went one of the games without recording a steal. That is just completely inexcusable.

pretty dumb point.

rockets had home court, and iggy was injured the majority of the series. that combined with better role players = competitive series

not having home court, warriors being full strength, way less role-play support, cavs were pretty outmatched

and even with that said, game 3 was tight til the last 30s and game 4 cavs blew warriors out

devils in the detail my friend

Its not like Kyrie had a SHIT season until the 2017 finals. He and Bran swept through the East, no lube. Kyrie and Bron were without a doubt the two best from both sides before the 17 finals started. Bron choked a winnable game 3 and that was all she wrote unfortunately

Lol, you want to believe that Kyrie was better last postseason than Durant, Curry, or Kawhi, we'll just agree to disagree

Kyrie just manhandled a 73 win team en route to a championship that alone trumps anything KD has ever done or will ever accomplish. Kawhi is not even in the discussion im talking about the best players between Warriors and Cavs in the 2017 finals. It was 1. Lebron 2. Kyrie Irving going into the series

Lebron choked in crunchtime plain and simple thats why the series looks more lopsided than it really was. Jr Smith made the same amount of 3s as Klay and Curry that series. Dude had one of the best offensive teams in NBA history but choked in the 4th quarter of game 3 and that was the series

"basically beat them"

so the Rockets went to the Finals?

and Paul and Harden only "almost" beat the Warriors. Lebron actually did.

Steph wasn't coming off of injury in 2017 when there was no question the Warriors were playing through him and Iguodala was available throughout. That's pretty much the difference. The Warriors should have iced the Rockets in one of the games they lost and finished the series in 5 but had a horrid 4th quarter.
