    Nick Nurse is a great coach. We can't ignore the brilliant scheme nick used against giannis and curry. I'm not saying it works with kd, but it sure was hella smart

    It's amazing how similar this is to what happened in Golden State when they replaced their underachieving coach (Mark Jackson) with a better coach and won the title immediately. Of course Kerr won with the same roster, while Nurse had the obvious benefit of an improved roster, so it's hard to directly compare.

    Kawhi would have whooped LeBron's arse had he stayed in the east. When rookie kawhi shutdown prime LeBron, imagine what prime kawhi could have done to current LeBron. LeBron just saved himself from embarrassment by running away. Smart move

      @Hector 13 Umm he was... 2014-2015 He was a rookie coach Watch the Warriors Documentary they even admitted that they were gambling on Kerr never coached a team. He was a assistant coach for Pop. But never a coach. So you owe Tommy an apology.

    Raptors did a great job not being injured. When you look back at championships years later there are ones that make you squint. Raptors will be one.

      @Somerset Bassett stfu go look at the numbers and put it in context with the teams they played and the new nba (high scoring ,spacing, 3 point shooting) that team is one of the greatest defensive teams of its generation. They'll forever be underrated because of the warriors injuries.

    • Somerset Bassett
      Somerset Bassett 7 months ago

      @p c right. They had players of KDs caliber all over their IR list. Wait, no that's nonsense. Warriors injured list in WCF was better than every teams starters. Gtfooh.

    So were not gonna acknowledge that this team was built for this before he arrived, and that with the addition on Leonard, i could have coached this team to a finals appearance? That and Lebum leaving is why the Raptors got there. Injuries to Gs is why they won.

    • George Thanop
      George Thanop 7 months ago

      @Dan Mingus stop crying you little shit! All GSW fans were talking about how GSW doesn't need KD and they are better without him after the series with Portland. After all, state had curry, boogie, iguodala, green...all all-star, 3p leader curry and best defensive player 2017...the raptors had kawhi all star, kyle lowry 34 years all-star and siakam first season in nba (obv not counting all star gasol 34 yo) with kawhi and lowry injured...c'mon they had plenty of talented players to win the game...don't downsize the as the years go by no body will remember haters' words, only the winner

    • Dan Mingus
      Dan Mingus 7 months ago

      I LOVE how youre talking so much yet you dont know who i am or a single thing about me. Thats fantastic guys! What does the outcome have to do with anything bud? I said they were built for finals before this year. Now thats its over, yeah. Its pretty apparent the Leonard was the final piece they needed to get it done. That, and 2 major injuries to GSW.

    • p c
      p c 7 months ago

      Raptors has major injuries to both Lowry and Kawhi stop chatting shite, and also bucks were better philly were better gsw were better look at all odds yet Raptors are the Champs. You couldnt coach your willy to last 2 mins, never mind Raptors lasting through the whole NBA to win.

      But they still had Cousins, Iguodala, Curry, and Green tho.... Still enough to beat the Raptors, too. The Raptors defo outplayed them defensively and offensively. I mean 3 wins in GSW. Who would have thought that?

      As a raptors fan, I was not satisfied bc of the referees calls and the warriors’ injuries. These teams play so well together when they’re healthy and the refs honestly didn’t need to call every ticky tacky call. Stopped momentum. But hoping for a sequel next yesr

      What why? I think this was one of the best finals in recent years no straight up sweeps the competitiveness was balanced and the mid range game was making a comeback. No boring ass 3 after 3 but hey that’s just my opinion.

      I like Casey and Derozan as people but Casey had a half a decade to prove he could make adjustments in the playoffs but was either unwilling or completely incapable to do so, so he had to go. And as for Derozan, he was a choker in big games/moments and sucked on defense.
