absolute joke that all you need is 2 superstars out of 15, 16 players to win a NBA championship in today's game

the rest can be dregs

those Jordan teams had FAR better supporting players

The Lakers are just 0.4 points per game away from having Lebron and Davis as their ONLY players in double digits for scoring in the playoffs

and wow those ages of many of the players with lots of minutes

35, 33, 34 (soon 35), 35 (soon 36), 32 (soon 33), 34 (soon 35), 35

those 7 players' average age is soon almost 35 years

4 of them are often or always starters

not exactly a long-range dynasty in the making

going for glory now

I assume they make some moves to lower that issue

To be fair, bulls had a very average supporting cast, it was Jordan and Pippen that made them look class. Case in point are there careers once they left the Bulls or even the gap when Jordan switched to baseball. 

Infact, the lakers support cast is actually a very good one.

Rondo is a seasoned pro who has been there and done that. Be it in the regular season or the playoffs. An all star.

Kuzma was supposed to be a future all star. A first round draft pick.

Dwight Howard was a beast in his prime

Morris is a great clutch player. And a 2 way player. 

Danny green was one of the raptors main players in their quest for the ring last year. And one of the best 3 point shooters in nba.

It's literally a great team, with 2 of the top 5 players currently in nba. Only issue is those players are the ones you want to be taking the shots. Vogel has to set plays where 70% of the shots or playmaking is being done by or for AD and LBJ. 

But credit to Miami and their fighting spirit. I just hope herro and Robinson start performaning too. Would really make it difficult for lakers.

Golden State Warriors are really bad, without Klay Thompson they lack shooting power, they lack proper shooters, Curry simply can't carry this team on his own.

I feel Nets will win it this season. They are so good now with Harden. They just beat two LA teams without Durant.

I couldn't give a toss about Basketball, but just watched something on YouTube about Lebron James and what he said about another incident in Ohio. What a truly vile, hateful,  dangerous, race baiting, cop hating piece excriment he really is. Putting the life of a police officer at risk after the officer saved the life of a black woman about to be stabbed in the fucking head. 

So sad to see that country being torn apart like iit is.

14th best score (8th on west) after regular season is good result for them I think. Lets see what they do now. Play off time!

i admit i really underestimated Curry this season, i really like him, but i tought it would be too much for him this season, regardless of how great he is, because of his supporting cast without Klay. He did tear it up this season, he is playing at an mvp level, he just finished as the scoring champ of this regular season and carried the Warriors to the 8th seed, without him the Warriors would be a lottery team right now, that’s how good he is. Props to him ⛹🏻‍♂️🏀💪🔥

GSW got their shit together.. Not only curry but Andy Wiggins also. Lakers-Warriors will be tough.

 

Very interested where this season going. If everyone(especially Harden) is healthy and in form I think Nets is unstoppable, but Phoenix, Phila and Jazz also very good this year.
