    Lakers for the title...........NOT!

    In all seriousness, I'm not sure how Warriors play when Cousins is healthy. He could totally mess up team chemistry.

    Hopefully Warriors keep getting injuries and then Durant leaves. I mean enough already.

    Raps for the title!

    Seems like Durant might leave anyway. He wants max money

    Everyone says this, but is it really true? I mean I hope it happens because I'm sick of this Warriors run, but how realistic is this really? Where the hell is he going to go, for instance?

    And I'm sure the new arena will be packed with tech bros that know better how to render a basketball in Maya rather than dribble one... but still, can't they do something to take their two best players to open Chase Place, or whatever? Dump Klay and Draymond before losing Durant, right? Or at least try?

    If they've got a threepeat and are going for 4 in a row... how does he really leave? I get that he wants to be considered the best of all time or whatever... but that ship sailed. He already bitched out and joined the winningest team ever. I guess the question is to what degree does he realize that.

    I don't think Dubs will be able to max his salary and he will just go wherever there's a highest bidder.

    Yeah... maybe. But this doesn't exactly seem like the kind of move he would make does it, just to the highest bidder? I didn't like the Warriors move for him on a personal level, but it was a very mindful move of the reality that he wanted to pile up some trophies. He seems like a much more thoughtful guy than "go to where they pay the most".

    I mean... I'd be pretty surprised if he went to Brooklyn, just because they could pay him the most.

    Either way, the Warriors squandered their most interesting possible storyline -- the 73 win team trying to redeem themselves -- so the next best thing is what will they look like post-KD. To me that's something that's really interesting and worth watching, so I'm glad the consensus seems to be he's going to leave.

    Just as Zion is something we haven't seen yet, so is Luka.

    The media locally still hasn't been part of what fans have begging for for years now.

    I hated Rivers when he was in high school. There was no way I thought the trade was going to happen when I saw Rivers was playing during all of the rumors.

    Im starting to think they are protecting him, but his record speaks for itself.

    Maybe he is just well connected. I don't get it.

    Balic and Karabatic best players in the handball history.
    Djokovic number 1 in the world in tennis.
    Modric ballon d'or in soccer.
    Ivan Miljkovic among the best volley ball players of all times.
    Best players in the world of water polo.
    And now after the likes of drazen petrovic, Toni Kukoc and Vlad Divac we are witnessing an era in basketball in which Luka Doncic and Nikola Jokic will play major roles in the next decade.

    Not to mention the several olympic medals in different sports.

    So much talent from this part of the world. :D

    What a shot by James Harden.

    Two good defenders on him and he was fouled and still hit the 3. This man is just lethal.
