    It's time to appreciate what this team has done. I can't quite believe it really. I remember going to Warrior games when they were scouting the D League for guys like Kelenna, Tolliver, CJ Watson and now look at this, alone in history.

    Simply amazing.

    Amazing team, but the 96 Bulls would still beat them IMO.

    Depends on the rules. In today's game I doubt it.

    I thought they were overrated and Billy Donovon was a better coach than Kerr. I thought they were found out by a healthy team.

    73-9 is no fluke. 73-9 is no joke.

    Al Ahly , Linfield and my late fathers bowling club would claim better numbers .

    But they are an outstanding bunch of players.
    EA Sports need to make a game of just this team up against the best of the Bulls, Celtics and Lakers.

    The mental fortitude of this team and the ability to close out close games is something else. You just don't bet against them, no matter how dire.

    They are a historically great team, but like the 18-1 Patriots, it won't mean a thing without that ring. The Cavs are far more balanced this year than last year.

    It is interesting to note that over the 95-96 and 96-97 seasons, the Bulls went 141-23 and won two championships. If the Warriors win they will be 140-24 over two seasons and with two championships. Just goes to show how close these two teams are.

    The Cavs are defensively weaker. Despite the 7 game series, its a blessing that the Warriors had to go through such a trial by fire in OKC. Its made them stronger. They've been challenged and have responded. The Cavs are a better 3 ball team, but they don't have the length size and defensive tact that the Thunder had in these playoffs.

    They don't come even close to Bulls of the 90's let alone in all sports. The NBA is so shallow these days. Planty of teams with under .500 record nad stars are located in much less teams tha usual. They all seem to try to coy Celtics and Heat example of collecting big stars. Those Bulls were never going to loose those 2 games like these guys did against OKC. They were embarrassed. Some of their players were shown up like really not that good after this series, like Green, Barnes etc.

    Some people were even comparing Curry with MJ, give me a break. He was anonymous and far inferior to Westbrook in 5 of those 7 games. They are lucking better big man than Bogut and that is their weakness if you look for one, for starters. Looking forward to the finals will be fun although it looks like they both rely on 3's which is not "real" basketball.
    In the other side Mr. Lebron is in his sixth straight final. That is really something to ponder about - the luck of the good teams in NBA these days.

    Why is the 3 point shot not "real" basketball? Or is ISO post up and mid-range jumpers only counted as "real"?

    OKC is a fantastic team and they had them on the ropes utilizing their bigs and defense and yet, they couldn't close because GSW are the better team no question. No one has been able to truly stop them since they've gone Super Saiyan. The Warriors are just the most balanced yet explosive offensive team I have ever watched.

    To be a really good legendary team you need variety of options. They need decent big man.
    These days NBA lucks dominant big man at the moment. Who was the last big man drafted as No1? Can't remember anyone that come close to that type since Blake Grififn? and he is not even a center. That makes for teams like GSW easier to win their games. Variety is non existant in the league.
    Don't get me wrong but Adams had a ball against them and Green was close to being suspended because they couldn't deal with him at times. I mean Adams being main guy in the conference finals, he is in his second yea ffs. That team of OC was not going to make playoffs if one of Durant and Westbrook was injured, like it was the case last season. That's how good is the league at the moment. Even Spurs team that are carrying likes of Duncan and Manu finished with record of close to 70 wins in the regular season. Shallow league, nothing else.

    They are far from fantastic. They didn't make playoffs last season when Durant was injured which shows us that they are not really something special. One can argue that they improved trough playoffs but they are still not championship material team.

    The NBA has moved away from the "big man". Its moved to a faster league and not the slow plodding low post ISO. Centers still play a major factor defensively, but offensively it slows down the game and nowadays players who are smaller are able to guard bigger players because of quickness. I remember back in 2007 when Don Nelson went all "small ball" on the Mavs, playing Al Harrington at center and Stephen Jackson at the 4 guarding Dirk. Jackson was a nightmare for Dirk despite Dirk having a height advantage.

    The NBA is all about speed, length, and ball movement. You talk about the Spurs. The Spurs are what they are because of exceptional ball movement, not because they only feed it to Aldridge in the post. They work inside out and outside in and they space the floor exceptionally well. Its why the beat the Heat so resoundingly a couple of years ago. Big man basketball is a 80's, 90's thing. Now its all about good guards, and great wings, and a faster brand of basketball.
