I'll say this. In 2020 Bubble, Crowder and Iguodala were the veterans who hit timely clutch shots against the Celtics

Heat lack those kind of weapons this year

Against injury plagued teams? Same team getting prison raped by 55 at one point by a team missing their best player? They clearly haven’t faced the type of comp that the other teams have faced.
EVERY team got injuries...last season Kyrie went down and Harden was playing hurt and the Bucks won by a TOE

Let's not do this

If Bogut does'nt go down and Bron does'nt cry about Draymond, do the Cavs come back against the 73-9 Dubs??

What was the Suns excuse for losing to a Mavs team that does not have the star power or talent that Phoenix does?

The Bucks were missing Middleton...do they get a pass for losing to the Celtics?

You play who is in front of you and if you do the right things, you win

Only team that got swept this year was the Nets

Either of these teams make it to the Finals and they getting cut up by the Warriors

I don’t think so.

The Celtics put in WORK vs the best of the Western Conference this season, including the Warriors

Every team does have injuries. I agree with that….But did every team get to play a team missing their second and third best players? Or was that just the Warriors

Did every team get to have their opponents best player go down mid series? Or was that just the Warriors?

The Heat kinda had that advantage too and u saw how they were cruising…only the best player managed to comeback during that series.

At the end of the day u do play who’s in front of you and I’m not saying it’s GS fault but it still doesn’t change the fact that they went up against diminished competition. Which why I’m confused that u would just peg them to win just off their current run. They haven’t looked that good at all.

Keeping it a buck all the other teams left in the playoffs have been playing at a higher level. But u were picking them like it was a forgone conclusion…

Celtics beat the Bucks without Middleton

Celtics beat a Nets team held together with duct tape and patchouli incencse

Embiid was out to start the series against the Heat

The best player on the Nuggets was the MVP of the 2022 Season

And the Grizzlies were losing with or without Ja

You play who is in front of you, or we gonna have to start retroactively taking away A LOT of nikkas rings over the past decade

The Dubs have championship DNA, coaching, and veteran experience AND lost one of their best wing defenders in GP2

It's essentially Luka vs Golden State

Those last 6 minute small ball lineups going decide the series

Bam/Horford
Tucker/Williams
Jimmy/Tatum
Vic/Brown
Lowry/Smart

Herro, going to get the grayson allen defensive treatment. Unless he's shooting 45% on his 3s he's going to be a liability out there.

They say bubble didn't count so we'll beat them differently this year :wow: and we're way better than that 4 seed team we were when we went to the finals...jimmy disappeared in some games during that bubble run and we still made it...so far this run he ain't slacking...we're not worried about you losers
