    After all that.... a whole year, a fun season, and we get THIS again?

    What's the point of watching basketball when apparently only LeBron and the Warriors ever win in the spring?

    I honestly would have rather seen the Pens threepeat if it meant CLE/GSW both didn't make it to June.

    2 7-game series in the conference finals and people are complaining that the playoffs are *boring*? If you don't like basketball just f***ing say it, geez.

    People like it, they just liked it more when the 1-8 seeds for both conferences had enough talent to make a possible run or upset, as opposed to 2-3 good teams for the entire league, period. Mixed in with during that time teams played something that resembled actual defense mixed in with a little physicality.

    The last time this was the case was the 70s and that was literally the lowest point of the league.

    Not quite, early 2000's at the very earliest. Talent was even more widespread in the 90's before that.

    90s? Seriously? 6x Bulls 2x Rockets, so fun.

    Lakers 3x in a row to start the 00s. Then 2 more in 09 and 10. Between that you have 3x Spurs. Wow so much variety.

    The difference from today's teams being, those teams then didn't have as easy of a cakewalk to get to the finals as it's been in recent years.

    And don't forget Pistons & the Spurs, very good teams in their own right.

    Still never understand this point. People watch basketball cause they like the sport, and they like their teams. I'm not gonna abandon a sport I really like watching just because you can usually assume whose going to the finals. Doesn't even make sense.

    I also don't think people would have gotten "tired" of the matchup if KD didn't join the Warriors.

    Happy GS won

    How does a coach let his team continue to take 3's when they are missing them at record #'s? Also why on earth was Ariza on the court with that horrid performance?

    He should have been stapled to bench most of 2nd half

    One thing that just doesn't make sense to me is: what did the Warriors franchise do to deserve the luck they've had? Because it's really unbelievable.

    That stat seems even more shocking this morning. That's a record of futility that could last a long, long time.

    What luck? Most of their players were drafted and groomed by the Warriors themselves. Ill give you KD tho that was just unfair for other teams but I cant blame the guy for chasing rings

    Their whole cap situation is just a complete fluke. Kyrie and Love injured in 2015, CP3 this year.

    Well, no, their cap situation right now isn't all that great. It was great prior, but that's because Steph Curry hadn't earned a big time pay day yet. Nor had Klay Thompson. In fact, none of the Warriors had earned it. I remember when Andre Iguodala signed with the Warriors that it was perceived he was going to be the 2nd option on that team, but Klay and Draymond developed so well.

    And please, don't cite injuries to Kyrie and Love in 2015. If you want to do that, then cite Curry's injury and Draymond's suspension in 2016 as the reason Cleveland "got lucky".

    Draymond kicked a dude in the nuts, there's no luck involved there.

    Draymond deserved a suspension in the OKC series; he 100% did not deserve a suspension in the finals for what he did to LeBron.
