Honestly, I think Kerr brought that loss for them.  I think Mike Brown would've gotten the win for them.  Late game adjustments were awful on Kerr's part

End of 3rd quarter they were down maybe 15-16.  Lebron is sitting at this point to start the 4th.  I think Mccaw or something make 2-3 baskets.  Down 11.  But Curry and Durant are still sitting.  That was the time to bring one or both back with Lebron resting.  But Kerr likes to be cute with lineups which works in regular season but not as well in playoffs.  Tyron lue in comparison takes no chances, gets Lebron right back in after this run.

I actually think Mike Brown is a terrible terrible coach...I still remember his stint with the lakers, but his lineup changes are more suitable for this warriors team since they are so talented.  Brown trusts no one else besides his regular rotations guys and plays them heavy minutes (remember him in Cavs?)  He lets guys he trust "play through" it and offers little to no adjustments mid game, which is perfect for this GOAT offense team.  Because he doesn't trust his other guys, He'll always stagnant curry and Durant and plays them together often too.  He'll spam the Durant curry pick and roll for multiple possessions (if it works he'll stick with it until it doesn't) whereas Kerr will want to go back to his passing offense which results in many turnovers like last game.

Kerr is a mastermind at bringing that offense to golden state and getting those guys to buy in, but ever since his 1st year (back problems) he's not been the same I think.  Game 7 last year, I truly think warriors win if he doesn't give major minutes to ezeli/varajao (purely idiotic) or even Harrison barnes etc.  Mike brown *if he was coach* would've never played that stupid lineup and would've just played his 6-7 guys all game and just trust them.  I think they would've pulled it off last year IMO

So KD has his ring... even had a commercial from Nike telling everyone to shut their face.

LBJ claims he wasn't on a super team (heh).

GSW will win for the next X years.

Lakers will still suck.

Clippers will never go far in the playoffs unless LBJ signs with them.

PG13 and Butler are over rated.

Sounds like Kerr finally channeled his inner Mike Brown and rode his lineup into victory.  Seems Warriors are going to win a few in a row.  Adjustments for next year?  I think Kevin Love might've played his last game for the Cavs.  It's obvious they need another scorer and a defender on KD (assuming a rematch)... a Paul George or Carmelo is what they need I think seeing yesterday's game.  You probably need to trade Love to get Paul George (he has lower value since he might bolt).  Carmelo is definitely cheaper, might just cost Tristan Thompson though they will miss his rebounding.  They should try to trade shumpert/jr smith/korver etc and see if Phil bites on Carmelo to get rid of him. 

The only other contender possibly is if Celtics get Gordon Hayward as a free agent.  But I don't see how it's not another warriors vs cavs again next year.  Lakers are def gonna suck still.  Balll vs Jackson seems like the pick.

KD got his ring, but his decision to join a 73-win team means he chose the EASY path to the ring.  And in doing so, the NBA lost a lot of its excitement.  For those reasons, I can't respect his choice. 

He's the 2nd best player in the game and he decided to join the best team in the league, and his OKC rival that he lost to.  That would be like Chris Webber joining the Lakers in 2002 after the Kings lost to LA in 7 games.  If CWebb won a ring w/ the Lakers the following year, would you respect him more?  Would that have changed his legacy?  I doubt it. 
Thanks in advance for the 'thanks'!!

I agree with paydawg.

That's why it was weird when Malone and Payton joined the Lakers... and even when Shaq signed with Boston.

I am happy for KD, he's a good guy and deserve it.  He played great in the finals as did LeBron.  LeBron basically put his own team together so let's see what he's going to recommend be done for next season.

So now that Phil is done in NY, does that mean Porzingas stays with the Knicks?

Butler now in Minnesota, that team looks good.

So is PG13 going to be a Pacer in the next few days?

July 1 is going to be crazy... although not sure what will top the CP3 trade.

I'll speculate that Boston might push for Hayward and Blake Griffin, and if they fail to land two free agent All Stars, they'll then over-pay to rent PG13. Larry Bird is still advising the Pacers. He would much rather send PG13 to the Celtics for a pick or two and a marginal player, than to the Lakers for a couple marginal players. McHale sent KG to Boston for a bag of chips. Just sayin'. The rivalry is real.

Curry re-signing, Iggy leaving.

Ezeli waived... Lakers should have got him instead of Mozgov.

I think Indy could have got more for PG13.

Ezeli never played a game for Portland due to injury.

I take it back then... knee injuries on big men will always be an issue.

OKC looks good with PG13.

I dunno about Boston and Hayward.

So who will have a better record next season? Clips or Lakers?

I'm surprised, but Tatum looks like a Star.. however it's still Summer League.  They are still another year out.

I'm thinking the Lakers will reign over the clips this year.
