  • Somebody please explain how the sixes are favourites over the warriors... Steph >>>>> Embiid Klay >>>>>>>>>>>>>> Simmons Dlo >>>Harris Draymond = Horford Cauley stein is also pretty good. Klay will be back for the playoffs, embiid is never fully healthy in the playoffs and can’t play consistently well.

  • Nets should be on the list

  • Just 2 we all know whoever coming out the East is not beating Clips or Lakers in a 7 game series. Whoever wins the WCF’s is taking it that team is going to be too hot and it is going to be Clips vs Lakers come on now. Still going to be an entertaining year though to say the least.

  • Blazers could too. A team that was in the WCF last year, got a steal in Nassir Little and upgraded at big man with Hassan Whiteside over Enes Kanter

  • 2:03 I'm sorry but the only team that challenged the Warriors was the Clippers, not the damn Rockets. We did more talk about how we blew a 31pts lead on our floor thant them Coming back from a 31 pts deficit on the road

    • They now have Conley and Bogdonavic and improved their bench a lot. That's why. Their starting lineup now has two excellent three point shooters with Ingles and Bogdonavic and two good three point shooters in Conley and Mitchell. Favors was a terrible three point shooter and Rubio subpar. Also Rubio couldn't create his own shot, Mitchell had to do everything. Floor will be spaced more this year, easier to drive and finish or dish to open good or great shooters. They're going to be much better this year than last year.
