If Harden stops being trash, I think they can win without Paul.

Btw this is why I don’t believe Harden is the MVP. Houston is beating the best team in the league without Harden playing well. Harden shot 5/21 and they still won. Lebron can have an amazing game (40pt triple double) and the Cavaliers still lose big or barely win.

That being said I still think the Rockets need full strength to finish off Golden State.

Lebron is a beast. Played every second of the game and carried the Cavs (as usual) to another Finals.

Lebron has won 24 straight Eastern Conference playoff series.

Jayson Tatum should be fun to watch for years to come.

Where does Bron go after losing in the Finals?

I’m not sure where he would go at this point. It has to be to a contender, but Philly wouldn’t work because Simmons play a similar game to Lebron. Houston would allow Bron to rest during games because Harden could take the scoring load. San Antonio with Leonard could be fun as well.

Also Lebron is legitimately the greatest player I’ve ever watched. He just is. Jordan was a force, but even he didn’t do what I’m seeing now.

I have prepared the following statement for the city of Boston and their Celtics.


HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!


********WHHHHHHEEEEEEEZZZZZZZZZZZEEEEEEEEEEEEE*************

AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

*choke* *snort*




My sides. Oh my God my sides. I can't wait for Jordan apologists to start storming the gate why LeBron lugging dead weight to the Finals isn't anything as special as what Michael did. And I don't mean here, I just mean in general. I had this talk at work and every Jordan apologist there is agrees the Bulls were GOAT. Yet somehow LeBron won't get any credit regardless of the team he is on.

Edit: I shouldn't be so harsh and say things like dead weight but this is just one for the books.

The Celtics played a great series, but they faced a GOAT without a possible GOAT team. Lebron played liked the GOAT. Nothing for them to be ashamed of.

Interesting stat: In the regular season when the Durant had the most plays per 36 for the Warriors they were 5-4 this year, when Curry had the most plays per 36 they were 25-1 this year.

It's obvious how much worse of a team the Warriors are when KD goes ISO. He's been doing it a lot during these playoffs. If they go to that game plan tonight, they'll lose. If they stick with Warriors ball through Curry, they'll blowout the Rockets.

I don't think Cavs can defeat Celtics with Heyward and Irvings. Not at game 7. NO WAY

Yes the Cavs would have still won.

I am no Rockets fan, but the refs are absolutely cooking for them. In just the 3rd Q they’ve missed the 4pt foul on Harden, the blatant moving screen for Curry’s 3, the double foul on Gordon all among multiple calls blatant enough for the announcers to call it out.
