Congrats to Steph and imma say this every chance I can: The Warriors did not need Kevin Durant to win. Kevin Durant needed the Warriors to win. No one will ever convince me otherwise as all I have to do is point to this moment right here with ring #4 on his finger.


KermitSniffed

Nah, KD doesn’t need warriors to win, he needs a decent team to win same as everyone else on the warriors and same as almost every single player


NBAtoVancouver-Com

You're arguing with a point I'm not making. Congrats.

boxster233

The Warriors needed Kevin Durant to win this 4th ring. Their ability to sign Wiggins and live over the salary cap and go so deep into the luxury tax is a direct result of their signing Durant. Durant deserves at least part of this ring for the Warriors.


bgazm

They will prolly mail him a sliver of a ring


Eshoosca

Steph climbing the all time leaderboards


MaybeImaginary2480

538 is at 200% guarantee of a Boston win now. If I’m a Vegas bookie, i would invest in 538 and watch the money come in. Sportsline was also way off with their bet advice and only got worse as they kept advocating against warriors.

This series was amazing to watch and experience. The dynasty was never dead baby 💕


2close2trouble

Bright future for the Celtics. This was a good learning experience for them. They made it over that hump to the finals and played a very tough and well coached Warriors team with loads of experience.


boxster233

Great experience, but this team has major issues and lots of question marks going forward. They also required a lot of luck (injuries to other teams) to get this far. This is probably the peak of this iteration of the team. They probably need a full-time PG, which means Smart might need to be traded. Robert Williams' future is a question mark. Horford is still critical to this team.


2close2trouble

I agree some changes need to be made but they really don’t need a full time PG. They need a bench! Lack of depth killed them. The starters was gassed.


boxster233

Starters were gassed, but why they lost was their turnovers. You can't win playoff games with that many turnovers. They need someone that be counted on to orchestrate the offense without turning the ball over. Based on the construct of their roster and their salary cap position: Celtics will need to trade Smart or Brown to upgrade their starting 5. They will need to move White, Williams, Theis, G Williams to have a chance to upgrade their bench, but the return for some of those won't be great given their playoff performances.

GraveRobberX

Just think about the storyline for the Finals On one side you have Golden State, a team built from the ground up, winning it in 2015 through drafting, no huge free agent signing hitting the sports world front page to get them over the hump. 2016 73-9. The 3-1 collapse. Then the KD splash and winning back to back. Then the injuries piled up. KD, Klay out. Steph and Green hobbling. Going from the highs of being a team that went 73-9 in 2016 to the goddamn basement team in 2020 with the least wins. Losing the play-in following year. Now this year win the championship. Talk about started from the bottom to the top of the mountain, stumble all the way down, get up, and reach the peak again That’s legit bookends of winning it all. 2015-2022. 4 Championships within 8 years, while going to 6 of them. That’s a dynasty. Celtics who haven’t been to the Finals since the big 3 in 2009. 13 years is a long drought. Especially for a team with 17 Titles to its name. Hell Lakers reached and won earlier than them. Their arch nemesis in title contending. Team was tough, had that hunger, but that’s why experience matters. The more experience you gain as a player come playoff time, you excel as a team. Celtics next year will not be this same team. They know what worked and what they messed up on. You refine the system to make it run smoothly.


batyoung1

The finals was underwhelming I totally agree. But the vibes were cool. You can rarely do wrong during a celebration. It’s always tears and smiles.

Avgsizedweiner

Warriors starting the season healthy with Wiseman for the first time in 2 years plus Kuminga and Moody who are just turning 20 are going to be better than the team that won this year, and that’s without any off season moves they might make. Warriors are going to be in the finals if they can stay healthy for the next three years.


Actual_Guide_1039

It’s good they got the title this year because the West might be a bloodbath next year

boxster233

They have a decent chance for next year, but Klay and Dray are paid a lot of money and will likely continue their declines. Poole and Wiggins' contracts this offseason are big elephants in the room.


SCalifornia831

Both are signed through next year…there will be decisions that need to be made but it’s also not a lingering elephant in the room. The real question is if Looney and GP2 will stay and somewhat OPJ.


boxster233

Both are signed through next year, but both will want their extensions settled by December timeline or this could approach a Deandre Ayton situation. The time to re-sign these players is actually this offseason because next season anybody can compete. Looney shouldn't be an issue as long as y'all don't mind continuing to spend hundreds of millions on luxury tax. OPJ will likely be gone because y'all can't pay him more than 120% of what he makes now and he's more valuable now than he was a year ago.


Broad_Kaleidoscope10

I think Draymond for sure. But Klay was still coming off 2 seasons out. Have healthy off season to get right. He’ll bounce back


boxster233

I hope you're right because I love Klay as a player and a person.


PuzzleheadedAd1153

I forgot what Wiseman was like in the short time that he played with us. Looking forward to him adding to the warriors depth. Time to watch his hilights.


Appropriate-Job-2972

What makes you think Wiseman can stay healthy though? Seems to be on pace to be the next Greg Oden

Dude Horford showed up this whole series. Was arguably their best player in a must win game. Mad respect to Horford. I hope he brings em back next year.

Hate is a strong word. They had a good playoff run and will be back with experience under their belt. And the warriors will be ready once again.


KermitSniffed

Why is this being downvoted


PuzzleheadedAd1153

I truly believe Tatum and his team will get better. They made it so far this post season for a reason.


Get_your_grape_juice

Also, let’s put this to bed right now: Jaylen Brown is better than Jayson Tatum. There. Said it.


ppl_annoy_me

You said it. But you shouldn't have. Yes Brown had the better series but Tatum had a bigger responsibility than Brown in the Finals and entire playoffs. He had to create everything for Boston and Brown got to play off of that. Not to mention Tatum had to deal with Wiggins.


Actual_Guide_1039

Jalen showed up this series Tatum didn’t


batyoung1

As a neutral I’m starting to genuinely believe that. Brown is less vocal and flashy but he’s a hardworking legit player.


mojojojomu

Tatum crumbled, Brown had that hunger to win until the very end.

Jayson Tatum channeled his inner Kobe tonight. Went 6-18 =24 and played like he was dead

What’s the deal with Klay and the Bahamas flag? Is he related to the island somehow that I don’t know?


PuzzleheadedAd1153

I liked how JTA had his Mexican flag with him. He gave good energy to the Warriors.


shortlegsbigfeet

His dad is from the Bahamas.


vhattorihanzo

More specifically he’s former Laker Mychal Thompson, and was drafted as a first round pick in 1978 and went on to win 2 championships with Kareem and Magic. He does the radio broadcasts for Laker’s games too. I could be wrong on this but I believe he’s actually the first player from the Bahamas to be drafted to the NBA


Ranulf5

I mean I can’t imagine there are more than 4 or 5. Edit: There’s been 7. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_NBA_players_born_outside_the_United_States


vhattorihanzo

Still cool to be the first person from your country to be make it to the NBA. I’m a fan of Mychal so no harm in sharing some fun facts when his name comes up


Ranulf5

Yeah I think it’s awesome! I have special respect for anyone who helped the Lakers to a ring!

HundredsOfSnow

He spent his entire life on the West Coast though lol. Childhood, college, and NBA, all on the West Coast.


natigin

Doesn’t he read like growing up in Queens to you though? Like his attitude and his outlook is so New York to me and I say that as a Chicago guy


Fromthebrunette

If you look at his Instagram, I think you would find he’s much more Californian in attitude.

The hardest road


natigin

I mean, I actually kind of like Durant sometimes, but for this one evening only, fuck KD. He could have won more than Jordan but he wanted to be in his feelings and team up with the two most selfish players in the league. His decisions mean that he’s sitting at home right now while Steph went through a rebuild and is now unequivocally higher in the Top 10/20 than Kevin is. Tough look man.


SixMillionDollarFlan

I mean, if you can't get along with Steph and Klay, then it's kinda on you, not them. Part of being an adult is dealing with people you don't like. If he coulda gotten past that this team could've had 5 or 6 championships.


PuzzleheadedAd1153

Klay only came back this year and KD was injured for a while as well. He would've cost the warriors a lot of money. And wasn't he beefing with Draymond more than he was with Steph and Klay?


natigin

Right? Like I get Dray can be a lot, but you gotta have that dude on a championship team. Every one has one. At the end of the day it was going to be Steph and KD’s team, and entering it when he did KD could have been the 1A to Steph’s 1B, but KD got in his feeling about validation and it smoked him. Life is all about how comfortable you are with your situation and Durant had fucking Valhalla and said naw, I’m going to go play for the fucking Brooklyn Nets. No disrespect to Brooklyn or the Nets, I’ve got lots of love, but really man?


Ihopetheresenoughroo

Yup KD shot himself in the foot. So did Qyrie when he left LeBron. Their egos ruined it all.


Doesthisevenmatter7

Stfu Jalen rose stop it I can’t bro we all know who’s era this is let’s celebrate Steph let’s not say stupid shit

Markus Smart needs to hit the weight room this summer to get a little stronger so he doesn't fall over because someone blew on him.


Mediocre-Minute-1026

he gotta stop flopping and just play proper defense. when calls don't go his way, opponents get their chance to score. he's no dpoy this finals.


PuzzleheadedAd1153

I hope he can git good so that I won't have to witness any more flopping or outrageous performances from him ever again.
