    Pretty much said it for me lol. I was listening to Cowherd the other day too and he had the Warriors radio man on, and Cowherd was basically like look, you guys were up against the wall until Paul went down. Then the guy starts blathering on about Iguodala being out and Cowherd stopped him in his tracks, was like look nothing against him, but on that GS team he's the fifth best player. And if his loss was such an impact, how come the last game he played (Game 2) the Warriors lost by 25 and he had a grand total of five points?

    Enough already making excuses for the f-ing Warriors. The allegedly superhuman Warriors that were supposed to dispatch Houston in four or five. Pfffffffffff.

    The point is that no one cares to hear it lol. It's just an excuse. A team with four all Stars should be getting the job done instead of looking at their 5th best player being out as a reason they couldn't close it out sooner.

    This is a bit late, but I can't remember a player as good as Harden who I dislike watching play so much. He's very good, but I just can't get beyond the constant foul seeking. It ruins my enjoyment of his game.

    Why wouldn't you try and draw fouls?

    He drives to get fouled, not to score, and the refs buy his head snap every time.

    Does he flop? Sure. Throw his head back? Sure.

    Majority of those fouls are legit.

    When you are driving to the basket and then fully extend both arms holding the ball, then raise them up into the defender and throw the ball into the sky, I have a hard time calling that a legitimate shot attempt.

    It's smart, but it's not enjoyable to watch

    That's like telling Mike Trout to stop getting on base at a ridiculous rate and rather focus on hitting home runs.

    The same coach who thought it was a good idea to chuck up 3 after 3 in a game 7 after running his starters into the ground? All while Harden can attack the rim at will and Capella was having a strong game?

    Yeah...that guy

    This series also finished as the third most lopsided 7-game series in NBA history. But hey...moral victories

    It was a 7 game series regardless, that they were leading until their 2nd best player got injured. Their backup plan to chucking 3's is having CP3 slow it down and pick through the defense. You're shitting on a gameplan that got them 1 half away from the finals, which is just dumb.

    And two weeks from now, no one will care that they were one half away from the finals. Houston was also one half away from the finals in game 6 and managed to blow that as well.

    After missing your 20th straight three, perhaps it's time to change it up?

    your team was losing until houston’s elite point guard went down, it’s pretty par for the course for the warriors.

    we still hear excuses about how curry is “hurt” when he isn’t playing well yet when others teams stars aren’t playing warriors fans brush it off.

    hilarious stuff

    It's just a team playing within their system and not changing it. I imagine most, if not all teams do it even when it's not working. It's just easier to spot Houston's system not working compared to say a team thats running more pnr and off ball stuff.

    Also pretty easier said than done to just abandon your gameplan over halfway through a game. Again, a gameplan that got you 65 wins and a hair away from the finals.

    You're being dramatic.
