    Also have shallow depth and a fill in coach not name Luke Walton.
    What does last year have to do with this year? Especially when you yourself said they're both different teams.

    And let's also not pretend like Cleveland has depth or a good bench. They ranked near the bottom of the league in almost every major category.

    Re: The NBA Thread

    Last year has to do with the pressure being on GS.

    Cleveland absolutely has a better bench and depth. They have Lebron, who has no equal.

    Tristan is twice the center of Zaza, and cleveland is shooting better from behind the arc.

    And I'll take Kyrie over Steph.

    because all NBA is the metric to use for head to head in game 5-6-7. Kyrie shook Steph last year. He's got better handles and he is more clutch.

    The NBA Thread

    All NBA team which measures play position by position for a full year is not a good metric but "kyrie shook Steph last year" and "he is more clutch" is. ok then.

    Re: The NBA Thread

    Ill take history over the sports writers. The all NBA team is a joke this season. The fact that Durant isn't first all NBA team is a joke.

    These are the same writers who are going to vote Westbrook as the MVP.

    Kyrie > Steph

    Kyrie is a fine player.
    Kyrie is a clutch player.

    The Cavs would trade Kyrie for Steph without blinking, but the Warriors would laugh at that suggestion.

    Re: The NBA Thread

    Cavs doing whatever they want to the Celtics, again. Korver needs to find his shot. That is worrisome as the playoffs get deeper.

    I think this is a rested Cavs/Tired Celtics dynamic at work as well as pure size discrepancy.

    Cavs not named Lebron get very little respect on their capabilities and value. As they're built, I think the Cavs are an overmatch at almost every position for GSW. Especially when you consider that one of these teams has to win 4 times and as the series goes, depth becomes key.

    Depth barely matters in the NBA playoffs. Rotations are shortened. You play like 8 guys. Maybe 9. Unless your the Celtics right now. James young might get on the floor soon.

    That's exactly what I'm saying. Those 8-9 players are crucial. I like Cavs rotational guys much more than GSW. DWill, Korver, Shump, Jefferson/Frye.

    41 point halftime lead. Biggest playoff halftime lead ever.

    Cavs in 5 is a bold bet, but it's more likely in my mind than GSW in 5.

    This is unbelievable. This is a 92 Dream Team level blowout. The Cavs could go scoreless in the second half and likely win.

    It really seems as if Cleveland is going to take it down again this year.

    How sweet it would be too. Beat the best regular season team in NBA history then go right back out the next year and beat them again after they added one of the top 5 players in the league (giving them 2/5) to their roster.

    Man that would be awesome.

    I agree with this. I was actually a fan of GS before they signed Durant. Probably because I felt like Durant bailed on Westbrook but whatever.

    Haven't they though? This postseason sans a couple of games has been absolutely horrible from a spectator standpoint.

    If LeBron can shoot the 3 like this against the Warriors the Cavs will be tough to beat.
