Voltes V: "Laser swooooooooord!"

Steph is infuriating though because he'll disappear at crucial junctures. I'm still mat at him, Festus Ezili and Steve Kerr for last year's finals, and this year isn't really a balm because the Warriors kinda cheated to win.

This is what I meant when I said this championship wouldn't act to rectify the scales of injustice: Instead of a rematch, the Warriors went and put their thumb on their side of the scale and pushed. But hey the Cavs didn't stay still, and you don't turn down the opportunity to win that Durant offers.

Pelicans are screwed unless they have wings, not combo forwards they slot into the 3 because they have no other choice.

Pelicans are screwed because their owner doesn't care about them, was basically given the team at a massive discount just so they wouldn't move,, and their media market is the 52nd largest in the USA.

Still I think Jrue/Cousins/Davis with some shooting at 2/3 can be a deadly offense. But they're capped out, they're going to be like 15 million over the cap and maybe a hair under the tax, absolutely a hair under the tax, knowing their owner and media market.

Omer is making 11m a year for 3 more years. They should stretch him or waive him. They won't be able to sign anyone except with the midlevel. They're going to have to gamble on d-league wings and backups until he's gone, and even then they'll only have a little bit of breathing room.

All that being said, they got an all NBA player who could be a top 5 NBA player to play alongside their other top 5 NBA player, both signed for 3 years non new supermaxes for the 10th pick in the draft, Buddy Hield, Langston Galloway, and Tyreke Evans. That is the infamous dollar for a couple quarters and some dimes and nickels- trade.

The team as constructed looks top heavy and if things come together, if Demarcus plays defense, if Jrue stays healthy, if they can get any semblance of a bench, they should be in the mix for 6/7/8

The man was stunningly well dressed. He had a smart looking jacket, and a really neat looking cape, the lining of which was shimmering and sparkling in more than Oriental splendour, which is a great deal of splendour indeed, just ask Kipling.

Most pelicans do have wings tho

Let's toss in some extra nonsense to round the whole thing out. Draw Trump's hair on Giannis and have his long arms stretching out to pickpocket a wallet labeled TAX CUTS from the asspocket of a Jeremy Corbyn cartoon who is making out with a bald eagle puppet labeled Angela Merkel being worked by a dark-skinned hand arm protruding from a white-robed KKK figure labeled ISIS, toss an oil derrick on the Oracle dome and have it pumping blood onto Isaiah Thomas drowning in a kiddie pool balanced on top of a pile of guns.

The $30 million per for Hill, Asik, and Moore is a big burden.

Eh, that would probably be a really boring finals. Like a gentleman's sweep at best. With as bad as Cleveland's defense is, I don't think even Lebron going super saiyan can save them from a full strength Warriors squad.

Noctone posted:

LeBron/Kyrie/Love might be able to keep up with GSW's stars but I don't see their bench D not getting eaten alive. Only way they have a chance is if it's a bunch of games like game 5 of the ECF where even though Boston scored a C-note they still got blown out because the Cavs balled out of control on offense

So are there any teams that are serious challengers to the Warriors at this point?

The Spurs looked good before the Kawhi injury, maybe if they can move enough contracts to sign CP3 without sacrificing too much depth they have a better chance?

The Cavaliers look stuck unless they decide to seriously reconfigure their roster including the big 3.

Houston isn't close enough, neither are the Clippers if they re-sign CP3.
