    Raptors should have won game 2.. Lowry missed that wide open 3 in the corner (that he says got deflected). Should have won the series in 5, with Klay full healthy. We really dominated that series. Philly was way harder IMO.
    I think Philly would have won the title if they beat the Raptors.

    If they had Durant yeah, it probably would have been as tough of tougher the our 2nd and 3rd rounds, but that the Warriors would win it for sure it's far from a given.
    It doesn't matter anyway. Most NBA fans viewed Durant as a title chasing punk for joining up with a Championship team. We already knew Durant was an incredibly sore loser.

    This kind of lamenting and "what if" from the Warriors is normal, every team losing their conference final or final in more than 5 games chirps the same tune. The reality is though, other then Orlando that Warriors series was the easiest round for the Raptors. I mean, they won freakin' 3 games at Oracle, Klay was active for most of it. If they had Durant yeah, it probably would have been as tough of tougher the our 2nd and 3rd rounds, but that the Warriors would win it for sure it's far from a given.

    Raps were 6-2 vs the Warriors on the year, factoring in all games including ones with Kawhi and Durant in and out . That Raps team was really well built to beat the Warriors system. Raps were coached better, had a better and more physical frontcourt, were better defensively (especially on the perimeter) and arrived at the finals in a perfect place mentally. To beat that 2019 Raps team 4 times out of 7 with the defensive disposition they had was extremely difficult. That was the common thread among people analyzing the games after. Raps were the more solid, well-rounded, better load managed, and better preserved team in the finals, which is why the won it all.

    What him, his teammates and the fans fail to remember is that the Warriors dynasty was build on fortunate/unfortunate breaks by way of other teams losing key players to injury. It's part of the game and they would not be who they're regarded as without it. What comes around goes around, its a law of life.
    None of this is making any news or waves in the nba world. Only raptor world. Warriors are chirping, raps fans are getting pissed. The rest of the nba considers us the 2019 champs and have moved on

    Kawhi walked to games thru the snow, uphill both ways. In new balances with holes in the toes.
    Not to mention his heavy, well-managed load.

    And he sucked it up and played through it like everyone else. No need to mythologize as "playing on one leg".

    Kawhi's dominance peaked in the second round and his slightly-less-dominant (only slightly) play in the later rounds coincided with him limping around the court. I thought that was pretty apparent.
    And he sucked it up and played through it like everyone else. No need to mythologize as "playing on one leg".
