    Its a bit of a tell tale sign that Golden State resigned Andrew Bogut for the playoff run. It leads me to believe that they think cousins may not be a good fit. He really slows them down offensively… Not that Bogut really doesn’t… But cousins gets crushed in a pick-and-roll for a team that switches everything and everybody is keying on him. Personally I don’t think they will win it this year… That team is not nearly as good as they have been. This will be hands-down the best playoffs we’ve seen in a long time… There are at least eight teams or more that could win it all.

      Idk, I disagree. Full disclosure, I’m almost as big of a Warriors fan as I am a UK fan. I’ve followed them religiously since Don Nelson was the coach. They’ve essentially kept rights on Bogut since he left. This is more of getting Cousins more relief.

      Also, I still do t think there’s a team in the NBA that can take Golden State to 7, let alone beat them. They are the real deal. That one year Cleveland beat them was totally because they got too arrogant and took their foot off the gas and by the time they realized it, Lebron had turned into the second coming! They learned big time from that.

      The thing with GS is their defense has slipped tremendously this year. They used to be one of the best…now in the middle of the pack according to the experts. Green is not performing at his normal level and they have slowly lost some key bench pieces over the years. They are incredible on offense, but if they go down it will be because they can’t consistently stop teams and go on huge runs like they’ve been used to.

    “LeBron could drag this garbage truck of a roster into the playoffs.”

    Constantly being “snarky” is not really a writing style, you know? If you are going to actually “write” a section on the NBA, why don’t you actually make an effort and THINK about what is going on and write about that. The problem with the Lakers isn’t there “garbage truck of a roster” … I expect it is as good if not better than some of the Cav rosters. The problem is that they don’t play as a team, don’t seem to make much of an effort on D, and try to outscore the other team with difficult, highlight-worthy shots that sometimes go in but often miss. This seems to be a “showtime” team without the showtime talent and competitive spirit. LeBron has not played all that well, either. Sure his stats are pretty good, but he is taking LOTS of tough shots (and missing), and making far too many mistakes. The Lakers seemed to spend too much time trying to trade all of their players rather than build a team. Watching them last night, I never got a feeling they would pull this out. They were playing for their playoff lives, yet were just haphazard and seemed to focus more on “getting theirs” than helping the team win. It was a pretty sad display.

      Because they spend too much time trying to trade all their players, that’s why they are a garbage truck of a roster. It’s essentially a bunch of young players and a few veterans. The roster was made to get Lebron and another star but they never got the other star. I don’t mind the writing style either. It’s his and if you don’t care for it you can read elsewhere.
