I'm still soaking it in. From being a fan from watching Mighty Mouse to living in this moment, now. Its truly special. Its overwhelming. Its hard to believe its even real lol. Yet it's truly a good feeling.

We can’t all be Boston. 

 

And besides, Boston will be celebrating another Super Bowl win next year anyways.

I'd really like to meet the person that said it was The Raptors that were going to end Canada's championship drought. 😄

Not The Leafs

Not Montreal

Not Ottawa

Not the Blue Jays

The :censored:ing Raptors! 

 The 6 time NLL champion Toronto Rock says hold my Molson.

This is apparently the last time a Canadian team from the big 4 major sports leagues won a championship:

Lol, it’s not over yet, y’all. I felt just as light on my feet when the Warriors were up 3-1 in 2016. And that seemed WAY more insurmountable.

I originally had Golden State in 6.  But I kind of want to see Toronto win just to see Stephen A Smith rage on national TV.

Stephen A is bad for your health. Resist.

Surprised he hasn't gone to Fox Sports yet with the other D-Bags in Bayless, Sharpe, Whitlock and Cowherd.

I'm mostly confused by people still watching talking heads on cable TV. If you want goofy hot takes just use the internet. The ESPN networks are only there for games as far as I'm concerned.

 

Honestly, after game 3, I thought Toronto was destined for death once Klay returned. I even told somebody that Toronto was "doomed." They may still be doomed and it will be very Toronto if they blow this, but man, I thought for sure GS had this game going in.

Klay back did increase the chances of winning for Golden State.

True, but they got walloped just as bad tonight as they did Wednesday.

 

Toronto might just be that good. The only real measuring stick we're missing is they didn't have to go through LeBron. They still took a hard-ass road though.

 

I'm hoping they close it out Monday. If not, it gets wild from there.

I don't think he's coming back.  I've kind of felt they're just floating his name out there so the Raptors have to be ready for him to play.

 

I think he’s more seriously hurt than the Warriors have been letting on.

It certainly looks that way. I was positive that he was going to be ready to go for Game 4.

People were getting ready to pencil in the Thunder for the NBA Finals in 2016 when they were up 3-1.

 

Things have looked different this year, but I don’t wanna be the guy to count the Warriors out.

Is it possible that we’ve been underrating Kawhi? This has been some performance these recent months.

He is cleared for practice, but before last night's game, Kerr indicated that there will be no more updates on his status.

 

Ramona had a great point last night during the post game podcast. The Warriors (specifically Curry) don't have any idea who is going to play game to game and it shows in their performance and lack of flow offensively and lack of switching defensively. 

Meanwhile, Nick Nurse used to coach in the G League and is really familiar with the constant lineup changes

Warriors not Thunder.

 

Also, this could be a career defining moment for KD, if he comes back and singlehandedly wins the finals. (Not that it’s going to happen, hopefully). Kawhi could also become the hero for a team that he (possibly) only played one year for.

1. If Durant doesn’t play, and they lose, does that validate them signing him since they would have needed him to win and he obv wasn’t joining a team that would always win even without him?

 

2. I don’t dislike GSW or anything even close, but I really like Leonard and Lowry so go Raptors. Win it at home so we can see the Park explode.

The Thunder were up 3-1 over the Warriors in the 2016 WCF. And then Durant joined Golden State in the off-season.
