Kevin Durant will most likely not have to pay for a meal throughout the whole month of July. He is truly #1 on 31 of the top 32 teams in the nba (save Cleveland with Lebron opting out, which counts I guess). Either way, the whole nba is lining up to to get a piece of arguably the best scorer in the game. While the smart money is on Kd going back to Okc for another year to give him and Russ a final chance to get a ring together, where's the fun in that. If we're being honest, there are 4 or 5 teams that really have a chance, Okc, Gsw, the Spurs, and Miami with maybe LAC having an outside shot of making a run at him. Kd will get the max wherever he goes, so what it really comes down to is where he has the best chance of going and getting a ring. The obvious choice in that category is GSW (I am biased) but that is clear in the fact that they have the first meeting with him after OKC. I think this also gives Miami a better shot at Durant, do to an easier path out the east. Overal I'm going 2/1 okc 8/3 Gsw, 12/1 heat, Spurs 18/1, and everyone else has no chance
after our 2 week hiatus, the boys are back with another pod coming out late tonight. Lots of hot topics to be discussed, including how to fill the lul of the post basketball pre football time of year for the sports world. My suggestion:
All year long we were yelling #arrogantSZN and #mvpbehavior, and now we're here. June 20th, one day removed from game 7, and I'm trying to scrub the image of Lebron jumping higher then Jordan at the end of Space Jam, then Kyrie, like he's done all series calmly pulling from 3 with ease. Steph didn't have the legs, Klay was hudoini with his dissapearint act, draymond the only one who left it truly all out on the floor. At the end of the day, it wasn't enough. The ball just didn't go the Warriors way, they had every opportunity to close the cavs out and it just didn't happen. Credit to bron and Kyrie, and I will have many more blogs I'm sure about offseason moves and free agency, but tonight Dubnation wallows in sadness
As the Warriors came home to Oakland after a hard fought win in Cleveland, there was a sense of destiny around this team. After all, this was the team that went 73-9, had the back2back MVP, the coach of the year, etc. This was going to be the team to win it at home, finally. For Bay Area sports fans, it has been a long time since a championship was won at home. The last time was the 1974 Oakland Athletics and the Mvp of the series was Rollie Fingers. Then, the ruling on draymond came down due to bron bron bitching (see last blog), and we lost the heartbeat of the team for game five and boy did it show. The real shock here is the greatness of Kyrie, there is no way in hell he can shoot from that clip again in game 6. All that being said, I'm nervous. This Cleveland team was dead and the Warriors gave them cpr, going back to Cleveland we know they'll go all out. This video sums it up best, I'm just praying this doesn't go 7.
Everything you need to know about the yay.
