Yeah sure he's the childish one lol
What point are you trying to make?
Think he was just stating his opinion bro!
Keep deflecting btw. Not surprised
What would you like me to teach you?
I think another factor that makes another Warriors title frustrating is what had happened 24 hours before.
The contrast between the Caps celebration and Golden State's could not be any more opposite.
For Ovechkin, it was like he conquered his white whale and the greatest thing ever.
Didn't quite get that same feeling with Golden State.
by the 4th quarter the game was in the bag where as if it would have been a close game there would of probably been a little more sense of accomplishment.
True, but when you’re winning your 2nd straight, 3rd in 4 years, and know it should really be a 4-peat if you didn’t choke, it’s not going to be remotely as emotional
gilbert paid luxury tax that year, even about 25M.
He paid around 13 million over the luxury tax threshold which means he had to pay 26 as per the cba. He didn't want to spend any more money was the point I was trying to make. They were breaking it all down on ESPN at the time and pretty much showed the ramifications of all the playoff teams situations especially GS. GS was under 100 million compared to the Cavs who were above 126 million with the threshold at 113 million.
LeBron was exhausted seeing as at that point he had been in 6 straight finals along with another Olympics. Thats a lot of wear and tear.
Gilbert has been paying the luxury tax since James re-signed.
Yes , up till now but at that time he didn't want to add more salary. That is when Lebron came out and started complaining about how they needed players to compete for the championship.

Also the rumors about Gilbert and the pistons make it seem like a lock that if lebron leaves, they aren't going to be a tax team which means adios kevin love
It also means LeBron cant opt in and they trade him. You cant just dump salary in the nba.
Hey does anyone know the last time the NBAF was ended before the SCF? I'm not even sure if it ever happened although it's theoretically possible.
I think 2011 and definitely 2013 cause the lockout.
Its extremely rare given they start the regular season 2-3 weeks after the NHL does. Yes their schedule is more condensed and the playoffs usually start around the same time but it makes a difference.
Speaking of - has any NHL & NBA team from the same city ever won in the same season? Knicks had a chance in 94, thats the last one I remember.
The Sixers and Flyers both made the finals in 1980, unfortunately both lost. The Phillies also won the WS that year. Not a bad year for sports in Philadelphia. The Eagles lost the SB that season, although the game was in 1981.
Bulls and Hawks both made run in 92
Bulls defeated Trailblazers in 6 to win NBA Championship
Hawks lost to Pens in 4 in Stanley Cup Finals
Doesn't look like any city has had both the NBA and NHL champion in the same season:
