    I like the Celtics in game 7 if they can get there.

    Not overly confident they can but still

    Yep. When Golden State punked Luka game 3 to essentially win the series, especially after what he did the previous round, I knew they meant business.

    This ends tonight, otherwise I like Boston

    Throbber always right?

    Or not.

    Definitely right on the mask wearing virtue signalling coaches.

    Throbber always right.

    Andrew Wiggins is a bad bad man.

    And, as always, fuck Steve Kerr.

    Tequila king post here….

    Wiggins is good, but is he really that much more than a 10% better Harrison Barnes? He’s an athletic wing with talent which was why he was a #1 pick, but he’s not a bad bad man. He had a good season and series. He ended up being a great pick up and they probably don’t win the series without him.

    The Draymond Green hot takes after two bad games were retarded. He’s a winner and he would make every single team in the NBA better. He’s in decline but he does so much for the Warriors and is the villain/pest dynasty teams have. He’s always been a great passer, great defender, and he’s intense and tough. The only question is if his personality becomes too much in 1-3 years

    Gary Payton II was a great fit. Someone will pay him this off-season and he’s limited in what he can do, but he was a perfect fit for what the Warriors needed. They won’t get luxury taxed for him tho and they shouldn’t.

    Poole has one more year on his contract before being a RFA. He’s only 22 and could average 25 on a shitty team. After next year, both him and Wiggins are free agents. I would keep Poole over Wiggins because he can replace Klay eventually.

    Kuminga was good for a rookie. He’s the wild card for the dynasty. If he develops into an All Star, which I think is possible, the Warriors will win a couple more championships. He’s the reason I would probably sign Poole over Wiggins. Kuminga can fill Wiggins role.

    Wiseman didn’t play but he was a bad pick. He doesn’t have the IQ and they don’t need him. He’s the guy to move for the role playing big they actually need once Looney is gone.

    They could have had LaMelo Ball which on paper is a no brainer, but I somewhat understand picking Wiseman because the Warriors are stacked at guard. Curry, Ball, Klay/Poole, Wiggins/GP2, and Green would have been a fun small ball unit to watch tho.

    The Warriors will win at least one more championship before Curry retires. I think Curry will be very good until he retires. He’s already 34, but he probably has four more All Star years in him, and 6-7 as a good player if he stays healthy. He’s simply too good as a shooter and ball handler.

    Wiggins did it all for them and was one of few who could because of his length and athleticism. That's why they already told him before the title that they were going to keep him.

    My guess is they ship Klay and package him and try to keep Poole. Curry and Green will take discounts anyways.

    JFC did they hit the jackpot of being godly and then sucking for a few seasons to build assets + hit home runs on G League guys.

    Mitten is the kind of guy I could see Portland offering way more money than he's worth because of the Beavlet factor and because they're retarded.

    Klay's not going anywhere. He is beloved in the Bay and the Warriors won't get value for him on the trade market. They'll swallow the payroll and let him ride off into the sunset on his own terms.

    Wouldn't surprise me to see the combo of Draymond, Steph and Klay restructure their deals ala Tom Brady to keep Wiggins around.

    Looney is actually the one who they may have difficulty retaining -but over the years GS has plugged in a bunch of guys in the middle.

    NBA isn’t the NFL. I’ve never heard of restructuring. I’m not sure it’s even possible if there isn’t an opt out clause.

    This always felt to me like the Warriors swan song. Win it this year or never again. Memphis with Morant beats the Warriors handily this year. They, without JM, made the GS look slow and old and had opportunities to win that series. Klay may make strides in the off season to get closer to what he was pre-injuries or he may be what he is now moving forward but Green is in a sharp decline. He won't be the kind of player he was this year next year. They probably let Looney go and hope Mr. Glass Wiseman can be their big man. They also probably figure out a way to keep Wiggins and go hard for a second straight title with the pieces they have. I just don't think it will be enough. Memphis is devastating when healthy. Young, an unstoppable superstar, great team defense, many freakish athletes, tough and they have four good shooters that can go off and lead the team in scoring on any given night. This was the year they push the aging champs and realize they can win. Next year they blow the doors off the Warriors.

    Did a little research -very difficult to restructure NBA contracts. Throbber wrong. Once.

    Still don't think the Warriors peddle Klay. Ever. Chubby MJ with the Wizards doesn't fit his vibe.

    People forget he didn't return to the court until January 9. Dude takes things personally and everyone writing him off are just adding fuel to the fire. As long as he doesn't hook up with one of the Karadshian/Jenners, he'll be fine.

    But I wouldn't blame if he did. Them Jenners are hot. The girls. Not Bruce.

    100% agree. I honestly would have been fine with Wiggins being mvp over Steph. And I was a lifelong Wiggins hater until this year. Shows how much being around a winning culture/teammates matters to some guys. If he was still in Minnesota he wouldn’t be putting in the work he did in the bay.

    Kuminga is good. Draymond already can’t shoot. How much worse is he gonna get? Klay still averaged 20 in 29mpg. Curry will still be Curry. They have Poole. Wiggins. I’m not saying they for sure will win next year, but they are the favorites for a reason.

    Memphis will win 50+ next year, but c’mon bro, Curry is still better. The rest of the Warriors team is still better. Klay and Poole are the 2nd best players on Memphis. Wiggins and Green are close or as good as Jackson.

    Like you said, you need to get a culture first, then get some all star caliber talents who will adhere to it. It's incredibly hard to do in the NBA versus other sports but once you pull it off 2 shit seasons actually propels you even further with the young infusion of impressionable talent.

    They are in an incredible position. They'll get at least one more championship and potentially two, and then Curry or Green or both will just retire into the front office.
