    Are the warriors vulnerable or just f'ing around?
    Yes.

    • Warriors had the 15th best defense in the league after the regular season and its showing in the playoffs. They used to be so good defensively. Golden's right.. this team is not as hungry and it's showing. It's why I had Houston going to the finals this year.

      • Ya, Golden State definitely seems beatable. Beyond Curry, Klay and Durant, they are very thin. Draymond, Iggy and Co. just ain't what they used to be.

        I'd even say that the 76ers are more of a threat on paper.

          Pump the brakes Joey...eeeeasy now. 76ers are not more of a threat than the dubs....on the court, on paper, on film, on thin ice, on planet earth, you name it.

            Durant could pair with a proven star in Leonard too. It was reported last summer that Leonard had eyes for Los Angeles before requesting a trade from San Antonio last year, and that he preferred the Lakers to the Clippers. The latest buzz around the league suggests that the Clippers have become his preference, considering the circus surrounding the Lakers, though it would be foolish to rule them out. Leaving Toronto would be less about basketball and more about family life, since what Leonard has now with the Raptors is close to ideal on the court. This season the Raptors were able to both feature him as their star player and

              Warriors are fat, dumb and happy (except when they have internal squabbles). It's hard to keep that level of desire & urgency to make 5 straight Finals. Sometimes talent alone isn't enough. Three-peats are rare.
              I personally think this series is a wake up call. Things will change next series.

                You would think being up by 30 in the 3rd quarter and losing would have been their wake up call already.

                  Oh I don't think it's as clean cut as you're making it out to be. I still think we beat both of them, but I think matching up against the Warriors would actually be a bit more straight forward. Yes, they have a Durant and a Curry (and Klay to lesser degree), but beyond them, there's really not much to worry about.

                  76ers have 5 players who can legit "go off", along side some decent support (Mike Scott has been a Raptor killer in the past), and 4 out of 5 Starters are "solid+" defenders. Again, "on paper", the same cannot really be said about the Warriors.

                        They are playing like a team that thinks it will be okay no matter what they do. But it doesn't work that way. Even for them.

                        Their defense should be worrisome, though. Last year they cranked it up for the playoffs but they haven't been able to do that so far. Also of note, GSW isn't a 'scheme' team defensively. They play it pretty vanilla. The question of whether it's an effort issue or skill issue is TBD.
