Golden State in 6. I just don't think Cleveland can match up with them this time around.
i think your right accept at this point GS may take it in 5.

Cavs in 7
wouldn't that be something to see. I don't know if they can continue to shoot 50% from 3. I am pulling for the cavs but the warriors have looked like the better overall team so far. Except of course for the historic exlplosion of points in game 4.

If they rain in threes with that type of proficiency they are unbeatable. But the Warriors really need to chop the head off soon or we could experience history again. Momentum is a strange animal......and so is the human psyche.

I agree.... If the Cavs pull some magic tonight I think it will go to 7 games.

Same thinking here. Game 7 would give Lebron opportunity to pull off another historical feat.  If accomplished would move him up to #3 on my all-time list.

Paul George was just traded to the OKC Thunder... Chris Paul went to the Rockets a few days ago. The arms race is on in the West. If OKC gets a lights out 3 point shooter to compliment Paul George and Westbrook they can challenge the Warriors in a 7 game series I think. Maybe not win it but that would be fun to see.

The JJ Redick deal was smart for both sides... No big name guys want to go to the 76er's and that is the team that can give Redick a huge deal cause they have so much cap space with so many players on rookie deals still. Sign him a one year deal and if the trajectory looks as it is then he can re sign for a longer deal at a lower yearly price if he wants next year or leave again to another team. The East looks so bad that the 76er's may be able to jump up to a 6 or 7 seed next season. They paid him double what he is probably worth in the open NBA market but the 76er's have so much cap space they just threw it at him. He can be a piece if the young guys stay healthy that I can see getting to about 45 wins in a weak Eastern Conference.

If he comes back healthy from his injury he can be a really good piece.... I have never seen him quite as a possible All Star level player, but I am sure he will have plenty of open looks playing with two stars now

The big name still being waited on is certainly Gordon Hayward.... At first I thought he would for sure stay in Utah a couple weeks ago. They love him out there in Salt Lake City. But now that Paul went to the Rockets, Butler to the Timberwolves, and George to OKC then I see Hayward splitting to Miami or Boston. I bet he will want in the East for sure now. The Jazz are the best defensive team in the league and still might only be able to muster a 5 or 6 seed as a pretty dang good team playing in the new look West if he stayed. He can go to Boston and be the 1 or 2 seed or Miami and bring them automatically way up in the East. Miami went 31-10 in their last 41 games last season after starting 10-31 in the first half. Look out for them if they land Hayward. Paul Millsap could also add a lot to a team at a high level for another 2 or 3 years definitely as the other big name.

Pg 13 will do big things in okc. But I'm glad we moved on he didn't want to be a pacer anymore this was best for both sides! Im excited about having victor oladipo...this guy has a major upside! The future is looking good in Indianapolis! Go Blue Go!

Hopefully sabonis can be a good addition as well!

With Pg 13 going west the rich just got richer! Lebron and the cavs will cruise through the east yet again. Don't see my pacers doing to much this upcoming season but man oh man is this young group promising in the future!

I follow Gordon Hayward on facebook.... It is official he is going to Boston so the sources were true. He posted a heart felt letter to fans. It was really long but a good read.
