    Yeah it really doesn't make much sense. They could have paid a PF or SG $10M. Put a guy like JJ Redick next to Kyrie and KD and that is dangerous

    hell BOTH Miami and Cleveland might win before Golden State again!!!!

    the unbelievable confluence of circumstances and luck that brought the Warriors their titles is just crazy when you think about it--- especially the Durant signing.

    And of course, the only championship that was without Durant which is probably the luckiest championship in the modern NBA.

    We KNOW Klay wont be leading you to another one. LOL

    though i'm guess for the Dubs it's simply standing in the way of the Cavs' "greatness"...

    wrong place, wrong time...

    is what it is...

    if you guys didnt defend the actions of an idiot i wouldnt be telling you how dumb riley has been since LeBron left. Honestly I cannot possibly understand how you defend his terrible managing over the last few years.

    I mean almost every move he has made has been a disaster and you stick up for him as if he is doing great things. I mean, the guy has gone balls to the wall with a full payroll trying to win every single game and they have missed the playoffs in the east 2 out of the last 3 years and in the year they didnt miss they were swatted away with no consequence.

    Whiteside was a disaster signing. TJohnson was an atrocious signing that you had to take Anderson to get rid of. JJohnosn was an atrocious signing. Dragic has never won you anything, hes starting to get injury prone and you owe a totally unprotected pick out for him still. You turned down FOUR FIRST ROUNDERS from Boston for the pick that became Justice Winslow. Waiters has been hurt and inconsistent- just as he always has been. Olnyk is of no consequence.

    I make fun of how bad Riley's decisions have been because they have been absolute shit.

    If Jimmy Butler goes out and wins them a playoff series and they are competitive in the 2nd round ill be the first to tell you my bad--- but i just dont see that happening--- if you would like to be otherwise, you know wher to find me.

    I know I rustle your jimmies but you keep forgetting I'm troll-proof. The Warriors titles were no luckier or less lucky than anyone else's. Everyone has luck involved. Especially and including your Cavs one and only title that they will ever win.

    So let's break down the inaccuracies:

    Miami might win before GS does next, but Cleveland absolutely will not. I tend to agree with @dtgold88 that Cleveland will not win another in your lifetime.

    'We' don't 'KNOW' anything of the sort. Klay will be back this year and then Steph and Klay and Dray and whomever they get in the next couple years will probably get us 2 more or so. There will be some lucky breaks like every championship has. And the Cavs will still be irrelevant.

    And in summation counselor, you can wave around 'luck' all you want....the Ws dynasty just went 3-2 in the Finals. 3 shiny rings, that will glitter for all time. The 2016-17 team is also among the best teams in NBA history. Warriors, not Cavs. Warriors. 3 ring Warriors. Warriors that went 3-1 against your team in the Finals. The Cavs team that likely won't be back in the Finals....ever.

    I really dont care to talk about the heat/cavs and i damn sure don't care about talking about things that took place several summers ago. Cavs are not a rival to the heat and vice versa.

    You insist on always talking about heat and lakers. It kills the board

    It's kind of a shame, the LeBron Cavs were a very good team, any team would be with prime LeBron showing why he's one of the 2 best players in history. But they ran into an even better team.

    True and injuries but it happens. I still think if they flipped Kyrie for Paul George we would be talking dynasty right now in CLE. Fuck, that makes me mad. Can only blame Lebron for not committing long-term though. It's okay, life goes on lol

    as I said, is what it is...

    I keep referring to the Buffalo Bills run of Super Bowls as my example of coulda, woulda, shoulda...

    sometimes the "chakras" simply don't line up...

    He hates the Lakers because us fans keep making fun of him. Then Lebron went over there and it became twice as sweet.

    He hates the Heat because the fans keep making fun of him. And the whole Lebron to Miami thing almost a decade ago.

    He even hates the Wizards because tlance keeps owning him.

    Basically he’ll hate any team who’s fans keep getting the upper hand of him.

    It all depends on the draft. The Heat had no titles before they drafted wade. That led them to add Lebron and Bosh. Without drafting wade, Lebron and Bosh likely never go there, and they have 0 championships. Drafting and getting lucky is what leads to winning championships. GS never would have got Durant If they didn't draft very well with Curry, Green, Thompson.

    It still comes down to hitting a HR for the majority of the teams through the draft.

    Lastly, the Warriors were as lucky winning that ring as Toronto was this year. When 2 of your best players go down with injury that is pretty lucky, sure beats a 1 game suspension of Green imho
