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


Were the Bucks missing Giannis? Their best player like the Grizzlies were missing their best player?

Did the Celts play a Bucks team missing Middleton AND Holiday the way the Nuggets were missing Murray and MPJ?

Embiid came back

And your Nets example is a super reach of epic proportions. They had their best players.


Why even bring up ring talk? I asked u what were u seeing from the Warriors to act like it was a formality that they would beat those East teams. And you said “Win”

So if u gonna use the “wins” then you gotta look at who they got those wins against. And their competition flat out hasn’t been as good the other playoff teams. All that Juelzing won’t change that.

Middleton is a key piece of the Bucks team. Giannis should have been able to put them on his back, but the fact is, Middleton was a key piece of the Bucks offense...this isn't George Hill that was out

The Nuggets were missing Murray and MPJ...the Nets did'nt have Kyrie for half the season, lost Harden via trade, Seth Curry was playing hurt, Ben Simmons back...by this logic the Celtics should have an asterisks

And ring talk matters in this situation

We're talking about Steph, Klay, Draymond....CHAMPIONS. People who have been there before, people who know how to lead, people who know when they need to show up

If we're gonna slight the Dubs now, then the Raptors chip a few seasons ago is fugazi too because KD AND Klay went down

You play who is in front of you, or we're gonna start analyzing A LOT of people's rings and progression over the course of the past two decades.

You’re not making any sense right now bruh. Who cares if Kyrie wasn’t there for half the season. He was there for the playoffs. Murray and MPJ were not


Middleton was a big loss but he wasn’t the best player on the team the way Ja was the best player on his team. So it’s not the same at all.

And I’m not slighting the Dubs...I’m just pointing out facts. The’ve played diminished teams....no other team in this playoffs have had the kind of advantages they had. So if you’re basing your reasoning on the Warriors pedigree then I could see that. But if you’re basing it on this current playoff run then I don’t know how u can definitively say some shyt like u were...when they haven’t even played that well and their opponents were all compromised.
