  1. EVERYONE (not from the Bay Area) wants the Raptors to beat the Warriors. They just aren’t going to.
  2. It’s over in 4, maybe 5 if Golden state sleepwalks too much through game four or whatever. This is the absolute best possible matchup the Warriors could’ve pulled. I am really happy for the Raptors, though! It’s always fun to see a new team make the Finals. That feels pretty rare for the NBA.
  3. Bucks are probably in big trouble here. The Finals May be over by the time KD is ready to come back. Toronto doesn’t scare me at all.
  4. The initial design they had in mind was VERY different (powder base, large Tower Bridge in navy as a background), and somewhere along the line it got completely changed. I was really thrown off when I opened the boxes to put them together and saw these. I dig it, though. It’s a departure, but it works as a third kit. I just have to keep keep reminding myself that third kits are always WAY out there.
  5. Haven’t seen these posted here, so I’ll update with the latest Sac Republic kits I put together. These are known as the “city” kits. I put these together, but I didn’t have any say on the design this time around, as they were pretty specific on exactly what they wanted. I wasn’t quite sure what to think when I first saw the design (They’re loosely based on our rather gaudy city of a Sacramento flag, but they almost remind me of an LV bag), but I’m warming up to them a bit after spending quite a bit of time with them over the past few weeks. They’re paired with navy shorts and powder blue socks. A bit out there, but the fans seem to really like them. Even if I have mixed feelings about a design Republic puts out, its still pretty surreal to see my work featured in media layouts and in the public sphere. Not too bad for a dude with no graphic design background (other than dicking around here) who fell bass ackwards into all of this.
  6. Well, that’s surprising. Here’s to a Bucks 5OT win in game 6!
  7. Look on the bright side. The Astros lost 100+ games in three consecutive years and win the World Series only four years later.
  8. Draymond’s defense is probably a notch or two higher than Mason (but don’t get me wrong, Mason was definitely very good. Draymond is just better). I’d also argue he’s a better distributor than Mason ever was, but having teammates as lethal as Steph, Klay, and KD definitely help. Mason was also probably a better pure scorer than Draymond has ever been. But, again to be fair, Draymond is surprisingly efficient for the type of player he is and the warriors don’t really need him to be that efficient. That’s actually a pretty solid comparison.
  9. I hope these two teams beat each other up. I’m also way less scared of Toronto than I am Milwaukee. Kawhi is VERY good, but the rest of that team is basically Blazers East in terms of a matchup for the Warriors.
  10. Alright, that’s enough from me. See y’all again next year when I’ll be back to mock the Sharks for being a buncha teal clad losers again. Go Blues. They’re definitely gonna get curbstomped, but go Blues.
  11. This team will never not be run by complete morons. McCoy isn't only a better player than Suh at this stage, he's also probably cheaper.
  12. Yeah, exactly. Losing in 2016 was a terrible feeling, but getting KD like two weeks later was a damn solid consolation prize. I thought I was gonna feel that loss for YEARS. Instead, the bad part of that pretty much disintegrated on July 4th.
  13. Ehh, not really. 2016 was an exhausting run, and losing in game 7 of a series up 3-1 was a pretty serious blow. I know that was probably one of the worst times I've ever felt as a spots fan. If anything, getting KD made it easier to get over, because you knew that the potential dynasty wasn't going to fall apart. Those kind of losses sometimes can effect a team and cause a bit of a hangover. The loss felt like it completely took the wind out of the sails, where bringing in KD pumped it right back up. You have to remember that at the time KD wasn't just considered an amazing player, he was also liked. He also fit a serious need the team had in terms of needing to improve that wing position. It was just as much of a shock to Warriors fans as it was everyone else that he signed here. I thought there was absolutely no chance. It wasn't until, well, this series that I finally truly and honestly realized just how overkill that signing was (Because, again, an upgrade to that position was a "need" for the Warriors). If anything, I'll look back at the KD Warriors with a TON of gratitude. None of it really feels empty to me because it took what could've been a title or two (Which is nice, don't get me wrong) and transformed the Warriors into one of the NBA's staple franchises. I can't really overstate just how important that part of this current run is. The Warriors are at the forefront of the league in ways that the Bulls have been since Jordan and the Lakers have pretty much always been. That's the most unbelievable part of all of this to me. And I honestly don't think that quite happens with as much ferocity if KD doesn't come aboard. KD pretty much kickstarted the whole thing from being a fun run of success they were having to building an empire, so to speak. Now, of course, you have to operate on the assumption that they wouldn't have been to five straight NBA Finals without him, which I do. I firmly believe there is ZERO chance that happens had they not brought in KD.
  14. Welp, the Warriors have nine straight days off until the Finals start. Everyone should be fully rested by then. The Warriors have been to FIVE straight NBA Finals. That still doesn't sound real.
