The defending East champions and the team with the second best record in the league were just trashed by them, not even close. Last night I was actually thinking of the 98 Yankees, and the 84 49ers to think if I've seen teams this dominate.

they truly do make it look easy... and i agree about the comparisons to the 84 49ers. not just the ease with which they dominate, but they are simply a joy to watch from an entertainment perspective.
Back in my day, Rick Mahorn, Kurt Rambis, or Bill Laimbeer would've put Steph and his mouth piece into the 3rd row, end of Golden State.

Impossible to compare teams from different eras. They had a great run last season and the Cavs, down two of their 3 best players, pushed them to 6. I'm still not sold they will repeat this year (but I'm also the same guy that thought Cam Newton would be a bust, so...).

my odds are warriors against the whole damn league... bottle on warriors, vs bottle on all of the other 28 teams (76ers don't count as an NBA franchise).

A bunch of guys out for the Bulls with actual injuries, and D-chair decides to sit out with "general soreness". Pathetic waste of sperm.
March 27, the Golden State Warriors played the Philadelphia 76ers. Going into the game, Golden State was 65-7 and Philadelphia was 9-64. This was the most lopsided win loss record match in NBA history.

Golden State won by 12 (117-105).

It was the 53th home victory for Golden State. Also, the Golden State backcourt became the first backcourt in NBA history to make 600 three point shots (at the 600 mark, Stephen Curry had 350 and Klay Thompson had 250).
The Cavs need to figure out what to do with Irving.

He may be a great good point guard, but he doesn't know how to be a team player --- at least not on that team. And Dellavadova & Love are better than Irving & Love.
Where are all my fairweather bandwagon toronto fans?

my facebook page about GSW went real quiet for some reason =)
The Spurs will always be my favorite team followed by the Mavericks, but cannot think of a team more fun to watch than the Warriors.
Amazing accomplishment by one of the best group of basketball players and teammates to ever suit up on a court. To be a fan for so long when they were the absolute joke of the NBA, to now tying the Bulls for most wins in a season with the opportunity to break the record, is surreal. Have to pinch myself sometimes.
If the Cavs lose in the finals because of Kyrie's ball-hogedness I'm going to be pissssssed...

I'm not certain why this new coach doesn't do something about it. I'm not certain why LeBron doesn't.

Kyrie's ball-hogedness will not be the reason the cavs lose in the finals. the cavs not being as good as the warriors is the reason they will lose.

i honestly dont see anyone on the cavs team that can really guard kt, sc or dg.

lebron really is the only one athletic enough but you cant really have him running aroudn the floor just playing d.

dova is just going to get burned, kyrie does his best impression of harden, love is just goign to sit down in the paint. jr smith has a chance but he gets reckless. shumps, if he can get his knee healthy might work but then you still need to worry about dg

No but it might be (one of) the reason(s) they don't GET to the finals... Wink
since the warriors decided to charge a 625% premium on the cost of my regular season tickets for the finals ($280/seat jumps to $1750/seat), we have decided to sell my tickets and book a vacation to Cleveland to attend games 3 & 4. a little presumptuous i know... but on the off chance the Cavs don't make it, I guess we will be driving to Toronto and will be able to have a killer offline with the local crew there! as it currently stands, I am looking forward to seeing Patespo in the 'land!
If Toronto does get in, the tickets will be more expensive than your Warriors ones...

Your equivalent seats at the ACC for round 1 were $450CDN for season's ticket holders.

The $27/seat regular season nosebleeds are $380 for the finals if they get there.

But don't let that stop you! Offline!!

teams are getting crazy with the pricing. i am paying more for my playoffs tickets as i am for my entire season tickets. and they gave STH about 3 weeks notice between the time the playoff ticket pricing was released, and the payable due date. last year, finals were $850/seat... this year, more than double.
As a 33 year season ticket holder with the Lakers, My playoff ticket package has always been more expensive than the regular season package. If I were you, ignore it and go have a great time. Maybe someday I'll get to go the playoffs again. Doesn't look like anytime soon! Going to Kobe's last game tomorrow. Can't believe its been 20!

It seems like 20 weeks.

Plus, damn, 37 ain't old!

Have a great time!

I am hoping the Lakers get past all this and Russell and Randle evolve into all stars and they nail this year's draft.

Hoping it happens Paul! And I love that you said Book a vacation to Cleveland
Last game for Kobe tonight. It didn't end well but what an amazing 20 years it has been as a Laker and Kobe fan. Since Kobe came in the league in 96 the Lakers went to the finals 7 times and won 5. They only missed the playoffs 3 times including this current season. So many great memories during that stretch. It would have been interesting to see how the last 5 years would have gone if Stern didn't overstep and cancel the CP3 trade.

It's been a pretty good stretch for me as a Laker fan. Since I was born the Lakers have been to 17 NBA finals and I got to watch some of the NBA all time greats in Magic, Kareem, Shaq and Kobe. Hopefully they can get back and track and get back in the mix soon. I like some of the young guys and we have a ton of cap room. I know KD likes LA!
Good riddance to one of the biggest assholes and worst teammates the game has ever known. Now if only the front-running Phil Jackson would join him in retirement, the game would lose two of the biggest jerks of all time in one fell swoop. Kobe's retirement charade was vomit-inducing. Guy was a prick to media throughout his career, but his last go-round, he wanted to ham it up to be remembered as Mr. Nice Guy. You won't be missed.
Haha TPE. I get why non Laker fans don't like Kobe. As far as a worst teammates, I do think free agents have not wanted to play with aging Kobe for the last couple of years. That said I have not heard his former teammates not liking to play with him. There is an ex-Laker that is a member of my golf club and he said he loved playing with Kobe. Best thing he liked is how hard he pushed in practice. He did say some guys didn't like that aspect of Kobe but if you wanted to win, you loved that part of Kobe.

I loved that he came to play every single game (except for 1 strange playoff series vs the suns). As far as being an asshole, I don't disagree. I also could not care less though. I'm not his friend.
well said Glenn, and as someone in their mid 30's, born and raised in and around Los Angeles, there will never be another athlete that will leave an impression on me as Kobe has. a sad day for sure, but also a great day to be a Lakers fan, and all i can say to Kobe is "Thank You" for bring the swag back to LA.
