      Actually, you're still bang on. We have 12 wins and 6 losses after 3 rounds - exactly as you predicted. 4-0 sweep of the Warriors coming up.

      • Lots and lots and lots of focus on Steph Curry.... yet.. if the whistle stays in the pocket... he ain't the threat the greek freak was....
        Klay.. well. Klay isn't an intense guy.. he likes to smoke weed...keep toking Klay...
        Draymond Green.. well the mouth from Flint just isn't Joel Embiid in the middle..he talks as much but the skill level isn't close.

        The thing about the sports media is that they fall in love with dynasties and seldom see them slide into decline in front of their eyes..and yet again.this is that case. The Warriors are more reputation than substance and without Durant are not in the same weight class as the Raptors....

        Igudola.. is 35.. or close to 59 in NBA years....and he is already hurting
        Draymond Green benefits from playing with Curry and Thompson and Durant.. on his own.. this guy is James Johnson
        Keyvan Looney is going to eat spaulding if he comes inside on Ibaka...
        The rest of the roster requires family members and girlfriends for positive ID's..

        The Raptors defense is suffocating... they kill teams... its not going to suddenly wilt...and the Warriors sans Durant are a better Portland.

        Think Detroit Pistons with no chance to beat the Lakers.. till they kicked their ass so far up their throats it was hard to tell if the Lakers farted or sneezed.

        Redux... 20 years later...... 1989 to 2019.. history repeats itself.

        The Raps sent Emiid off the court in tears.. They sent the Alphabet off the press podium in tears. .and they are going to do the same to Warriors...

        Raps in 6.. cuz that Leonard guy... yeah.. hes pretty good.

                      • I remember the concern before the playoffs started that this team was still trying to figure out how all the parts would work. I also remember posting a thought that others had articulated in different ways. That was that the team would have time, over the course of the playoffs, to gell as they moved through their opponents, recognizing that the games would start off easier and get tougher. Wasn't really bang on with how easy it would be to work their way through the Magic and 76'ers, but I would say that we saw a much more cohesive unit by the time they met the Bucks. Watching Kyle and Kawhi work together was great. Seeing Kawhi hit career best assist numbers was great. Watching Gasol managing ball movement from the post was great. But what was greatest of all was getting the sense that it wasn't all just happenstance or luck. The guys were moving in very specific and intentional ways to get free and to set screens and picks because they had figured each other out. And there was a quiet confidence in their play as well. The kind of poise that comes from knowing your teammates and trusting them. They absolutely had gelled, and done it under playoff pressure.

                        I wouldn't underestimate them for the world from here on in.

                          • I was feeling really confident on the Raps chances going into the finals. The Raps have in their favour:

                            A defense that just stopped this years MVP in his tracks.
                            A team that took 4 in a row from the team with the best record in the league this year who had not lost more than 2 in a row all season long with one of those games being the pivotal game 5.. on the road. .
                            A player who has shown he is in the top 2 or 3 in his sport discussion is suiting up for the Raps.
                            A couple of veteran players who can see a title shot they may not see again are playing that way in Gasol and Lowry. .
                            A bench that has found itself and is playing against a team who doesn't have extraordinary length and size which had troubled them in the series vs Philly.
                            The team they are facing has another top 2 or 3 in his sport designation is hurt and likely won't be playing, if at all, until the later stages of the series.
                            An aggressive and physical team with length and atheltiscm who have played consistently well over the last 3 series and brings an edge the Warriors have not seen so far in this playoff.

                            But now.. a prediction that solidifies those random thoughts. .

                            Stephen A Smith, the black Homer Simpson, who has consistently missed on every prediction he has made about the Raptors (the loss to Philly, the loss to the Bucks) is staying on message by calling for them to lose to a soft GSW team lead by a soft perimeter shooting guard tandem...

                            Portland south now carries the curse of Black Homer on record ...they are going to lose

                              30 years in fact...your age is showing But alas, I had first thought you were talking about 2004. Pistons, with no chance to beat the Lakers, won in 5. 1989..2004..2019..every 15 years, the upstart with defensive ferocity vs the golden boys chalk full of hall of famers. This time we're moving the locations a little north. Move LA a half a days drive up the state, and move Detroit just past a couple lakes and a national border.
                              It's Klaw Season. Time to hunt.
