    Unless Portland pulls off a miracle, the Warriors are gonna be massive favs over either Milwaukee or Toronto in the finals regardless of the ECF result. So in this case, if the two ECF teams combined their roster to tackle a fully healthy Warriors team, who would come out victorious in a 7-game series?

    The Toronto Bucks/Milwaukee Raptors lineup would prob include:
    PG- Kyle Lowry
    SG- Kris Middleton
    SF- Kawhi Leonard
    PF- Giannis Youknowwhathisnameis
    C- Marc Gasol

    Bench:
    PG- Eric Bledsoe
    SG- Danny Green/Malcolm Brogdon
    SF- Nikola Mirotic
    PF- Pascal Siakam
    C- Serge Ibaka

    A fully healthy Warriors team would include:
    PG- Stephen Curry
    SG- Klay Thompson
    SF- Kevin Durant
    PF- Draymond Green
    C- DeMarcus Cousins

    Bench:
    PG- Shaun Livingston
    SG- Quinn Cook
    SF- Andre Iguodala
    PF- Jordan Bell
    C- Kevin Looney

    Bucks/Raps

    Splashers are capable of dying by the 3 as they are living by the 3. GSW can shoot themselves out of a game if they can’t hit from long range

    I’d take the easy two pointers over the more difficult 3 pointers. No one is stopping a team of Kawhi, Freak, Siakam passing the ball and going to the rim. All three can defend multiple positions too.

    Kawhi & Giannis would be one helluva combo.

    People realize that even combining the Raptors and Bucks, the Warriors still have the players that can guard them right? Lol.

    Kevin Durant and Draymond Green aren't scrubs. KD is the only player in the league that can match up with Giannis length/mobility wise, and Draymond would give Kawhi a ton of problems.

    Add in the fact that Curry/Klay >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Lowry/Middleton, and I think the Warriors win this series.

    Jeez. What a stacked team GSW is lol.

    I lean Raptors/Bucks just for depth purposes. It would be a great match-up to watch.

    Warriors would sweep the best East team. That's how crooked the disparity is.

    Forget just the Raptors and Bucks, you’d need to include a few more teams if you want to build a team that could legitimately threaten them. Even then, your team likely isn’t cap compliant. The fact that KD and Boogie took less makes it even more ridiculous.

    You might call the front courts a wash if you think Giannis, Kawhi and Gasol/Lopez/Ibaka can match KD, Boogie and Draymond... but the backcourts aren’t even close.

    Motivated death lineup would eat them up.

    The chemistry that Klay/Curry/Draymond play with is unmatched, maybe in NBA history.

    I feel that there's enough on the Bucks/Raps roster that a good coach could work with. Plenty of great, long defenders. Lots of spacing, enough guys who can create shots. You could guarantee one of Giannis/Kawhi on the court at all times.

    Surprised that many ppl went with Bucks/Raps tbh. The Warriors legit have 5 All-stars in their starting lineup, while the Bucks/Raps backcourt players like Lowry, Middleton and Bledsoe would get murdered by the Splash bros

    For the purposes of this debate, does fully healthy mean Cousins pre achilles injury or just what he was this year? Because that's a big difference. I didn't think him going down this season really hurt the Warriors much at all because he wasn't the same player.

    I'd put Yawnis at 5 and Kawhi/Siakam at 3/4 for the starting lineup.

    Yawnis on Boogie. Siakam on Green and Kawhi on Durant.

    Fully healthy teams I’m still taking warriors. Cousins was scary good when he was fully healthy. Fun guy to watch with the kings.

    I'll take the raptors completely healthy over the warriors completely healthy. Kawhi and Lowry are playing hurt, OG would be nice to have too. Warriors are missing KD, while a big peice, the raps beat them twice this season while they had the full line up and raps didn't have kawhi. Golden State on paper pre season looked insane but they didn't even finish with the best record. #wethenorth

    You are in denial if you think that is true.

    C - Giannis
    PF - Siakam
    SF - Kawhi
    SG - Middleton
    PG - Lowry

    Bench:
    Brogdan
    Bledsoe
    Ibaka
    Gasol
    VanVleet
    Hill
    Mirotic
    Lopez

    Like lets be real..

    Toronto makes it a tight series on their own. That much is clear. Especially with Cousins looking the way he is.

    Not to mention if you have focus on guys like Kawhi, Giannis just has a field day inside and would be unstoppable.

    But Golden State nor any NBA team could handle the depth.
