Clearly no team can match them. Milwaukee is still a year away, IMO.
Honestly, the Bucks have the one guy who is a huge matchup problem for Golden State (and for anyone), plus tons of depth.
I say Golden State in 6.
I think the Bucks have a legit shot to win
Not if Durant can play. Durant cancels out Giannis, IMO. The Splash Bros plus Draymond will be too much for the Bucks.
I think (hope) that the Bucks match up much better than Portland did. Portland is an average to below average defensive team that tries to beat you by outscoring you with their backcourt. You arent going to outscore GS's backcourt. You just arent, especially if you cant come close to stopping them.
Bucks otoh are the best defensive team in the NBA and can score from all levels on offense. Hoping we see an actual series.
Who'll put their $$$ where their mouth is?
Talking is cheap. Riding Bucks ass is going to leave you broke.
Who wants to fade a stack?
Call me nuts, but I'm not ready to toss out the Raps.
Even still, Giannis is about to get the same treatment the Spurs gave LeBron in 07.
If it's the Raps, then Warriors in 3.
Durant would absolutely help the Warriors D against the Bucks...and really bog down their O.
I think a healthy Iggy is more important than a healthy Durant. Iggy can defend Middleton, allowing Klay to shut down Bledsoe and Dray to bother Freak.
You don't think Kawhi's experience would count for anything?
GSW in 6 or less...
His experience would count about as much as the experience of an amateur boxer would count against Mike Tyson in the ring. The Warriors are just too loaded, IMO, and Kawhi is not at 100%. I'd give Giannis and the Bucks a better chance, and even they do not have much of a chance.
I wouldn't give either much of a chance, though the Bucks are deeper, but both teams have some long armed guys that could (heavy on the could) play D and intentionally slow the game down.
Trying to run with GS is just a bad idea.
bucks are always fresh. id take bucks bench over warriors all day every day. plus having bledsoe, hill, brogdon, and middleton on klay and curry is in favor of the bucks. how much though? not sure.
The only chance the Bucks have is if the Warriors plane crashes during the Finals and they win by forfeit, other than that they have a 0% chance.
The Warriors swept Lebron last year so what do you think they will do to Milwaukee?
We knew the Warriors would win this year before the season even started and they did. As I have stated when you have a dynasty like this all you can do is sit back and wait them out until they break up, it will happen after the Finals when KD leaves and Klay too.
Then its back to business as usual unlike the last 5 years where the Warriors ran through everyone.....well almost everyone. Thats what makes Lebron the best ever. He was the only one to stop them during this run.
I called it before the playoffs and I'm still sticking with it...Bucks in 6 or 7. Portland is not that good with very little depth and they have still managed to keep almost every one of these games close. For the most part Denver even looked better than Portland, they just found a way to blow it.
GS in 6 against the Bucks.
GS in 5 against the Raptors.
Raptors did beat GS twice this year. And on their court with a 100% healthy lineup and no Kawhi.
That's regular season.
OKC played Portland 4 times in the regular season and won all 4 games. In the playoffs what happened? OKC went home.
Nobody is stopping GS period, this series is over before it even starts. I think the ratings will take a hit too because of GS fatigue and Milwaukee doesn't draw any outside interest besides Freak, most people cant even name another player on that squad.
I think the Bucks could win a couple of games but don't think they are quite ready.
GSW just have it all, defense, rebounding, scoring, championship pedigree, it's disgusting how loaded they are. People forgot Igoudala was a star player with Philly and he's like the 6th best guy on the team.
Great comparison. It will give us some indication of how good this Milwaukee team is and what we can expect from Giannis going forward.
If Durant is out or really limited then this will be an interesting series.
Bucks have no shot. They have one gun on 4 even with Durant out. Watching Giannis in the finals will be interesting though, curious if he can go full LeBron beast mode and single handedly claw out a win or two.
I think this is the only honest way Milwaukee has a chance, unless they do this they will 100% lose.
You already have Durant out(more than likely) so you need to get one more of them out, preferably Steph. You cant cheap shot him and risk getting thrown out but you need Curry out of this series to have a shot.
If I was a coach I would have whoever checks Curry to slide their foot under his during closeouts, when he comes down he will land on the foot of the defender. Teams do this all the time and Bill Laimbeer invented this move. Lately Zaza Pachulia has perfected it himself and used it on Leonard awhile ago.
This is professional sports and teams are willing to do whatever it takes to WIN so this option is on the table, if im Milwaukee I would try it. You have to get Curry out of the Finals.
What I expect to hear from someone who wants his team to sign Tyreek Hill and Kareem Hunt.
This is Pro sports not the boy scouts.
How do you people find this compelling. Youve known since before the season started what was going to happen.
Klay is not leaving the Warriors.
agreed. KD is the one leaving.
Even if he does they were going to be a dominant dynasty regardless and will stay one unless another superteam emerges. KD is a big piece, but is there any one team that can realistically add KD that is a KD away from taking out the Warriors in a 7 game series? Remember KD had his shot with Westbrook and failed, so what team is out there that he would elevate to that level? Remember the motivation for KD leaving is likely to prove he can be an "alpha" and carry a team to a title like LeBron, and silence haters of his move to join a superteam, so he is not going to just join Harden, Giannis, or LeBron on the Rockets, Bucks, or Lakers.
It literally took the sports equivalent of lightning striking for the Warriors not to be working on their 5th title. They won 73 games without him and went up 3-1 on the Cavs without him. They just swept the Blazers without him, they won in Houston without him, they are going to beat the Bucks without him.
Agreed GS isn't going to let one of their core members leave, KD came and got his ring's now he can move on.
GS is just too comfortable. They play like ‘whatever, you got up 20 on us, now it’s go time’....then it’s over
Bucks are a better team than the rockets and they gave GS fits just as they did last year when it went to 7 games with Chris Paul injured. It's laughable to say that clearly no team can match them just because they swept the Blazers who had a terrible matchup against the Warriors. Yet were still able to keep the games close.
Also Giannis is way too strong for Durant to stop him on his own. There is no doubt in my mind the Bucks would win at least 2. They also get the home court advantage since they had a better regular season record.
Bucks ain't been to the Finals in decades. They'll have that deer in the headlights look (pun intended).
Depending upon how they use the cap room with KD leaving, they could be better
Maybe but none of the Rocket players have either and you said clearly no team can match them, yet they did. I don't care that it wasn't the finals. Bucks have the defenders and more length to defend them the same way as the rockets did. They were the best defensive team in the regular season and that will carry over in the finals even with the deer in the headlight look.
Your team and its so-called "best defense in the league" are getting blown out by a second-rate Raptors squad led by their lone superstar Kawhi who is 70% healthy at best. GSW will run train over them when/if they make it to the Finals.
Actually my favorite team is the Raptors only because of KL. I don't care about the Bucks but I do think they are the best team and will definitely still win this series. People forget Raptors are a damn good team especially at home with the loudest crowd in the NBA. You have to admit, they are on fire tonight. Would have been tough for anyone to beat them...Just one of those nights.
Yes. I actually think Kawhi is a better postseason player than Giannis is at this point. Giannis is freakishly gifted, but not sufficiently developed as an offensive player. Haven't seen him take over a meaningful playoff game yet, and I wouldn't trust him to take the last shot of the game.
