Well, you are playing Golden State. The team who pulled the biggest choke-job in finals history after setting a season win record.

The Suns are bad because they can't develop their high picks so they end up being worthless, and they go to other teams, where they are sometimes better.

I missed the game, I'm watching it on game replay.
I can't help but notice that the Celtics either had a lot of injuries or, stupidly, rested a load of players.

I love the rockets but I do wonder why in almost every game they go through a stage where they just turn off.

Why does no one want a cavs-warriors final?

Are the warriors the nba equivalent of the patriots?
