If they win in Game 4 , OMG we will NEVER hear the end of how great they are! And the Warriors are already cocky enough. I wish the Cavs would give them a little fight and not get swept!

That...and the other NBA teams would be ****ed! Because the Warriors will seem to be a powerhouse and the Cavs won't be able to shake it off.

The Warriors may go 82-0 next year if they keep this **** up!

I'll take 1-4 over 0-4 because that means...The Cavs tried...

I didn't care for David Stern b/c he was like Roger Goodell, he wants to play politics in the NBA

The NBA has already been a disaster ever since they moved it to ESPN

ESPN likes to nitpick and compare people like Kobe Bryant and LeBron James to Michael Jordan

That's why I LOVE TNT and NBA TV b/c to me, they give everyone a fair share and plus, I like listening to Charles Barkley, Shaq and Isiah Thomas

Bob Costas said it best "There can only BE 1 Michael Jordan"

When the NBA was on CBS, it was also about Magic Johnson, Larry Bird and the Bad Boys known as the Detroit Pistons

When the NBA moved to NBC in the 90's, it wasn't just about Michael Jordan, Shaquille O'Neal, Hakeem Olajuwan, David Robinson and up and comers like Kevin Garnett and Tim Duncan, it was all about the FIRE and the PASSION!

When the NBA moved to abc/ESPN (which are owned by Disney), it's been all about the hype and most of their commentators (other than Doris Burke) SUCKS

Hey, you can say what you want about the Golden State Warriors, they're a well oiled machine and they are disciplined unlike the Cavaliers who have NO Discipline

I'm a Bulls Guy, but I would always pull for the West whenever LeBron James makes the Finals

I would pull for the Dallas Mavericks, San Antonio Spurs and the Golden State Warriors

OKC Thunder made the finals, but they had no experience in the finals and when LeBron won a ring against them, I wasn't surprised, but the only time I didn't watch Game 7 was 4 years ago when the Heat and Spurs played b/c I didn't care who won, the Spurs should've won that year, but anytime I see the LeBron James lose whether it being the Cavs or the Heat, I would ALWAYS get happy and so will my buddies who LOVE Basketball

If you ask me, if the NBA Finals were on TNT, it would be a WHOLE LOT BETTER!

also, don't y'all get mad at me when I say this, but Charles Barkley was dead on correct when he said that the Boston Celtics have a squad, but they don't put any fear in your heart and it showed right there, whenever they play the Cavs, they loss 5 straight postseasons games @ home to the Cavs ever since LeBron James returned to Cleveland

Whenever I think of that rivalry, I think of Larry Bird and Mark Price

Thinking back to those late 1980's days, the Cavs squad of 1988-89 really should have had a better fate. They were statistically better than the Pistons that year, although it was Detroit winning the division over Cleveland by 6 games. The Cavs ended up with the misfortune of playing the Bulls in the playoffs, that series is where Michael Jordan started to get his reputation and the NBA and rest of the world found out just how fierce and competitive Jordan was going to be.

The Lakers still ruled the West that season, the Jazz statistically were the best defensive NBA team in 88-89 with an awesome starting lineup but their bench wasn't very strong. A flashy Warriors team with firepower on offense surprised Utah in the playoffs and bounced them out in the first round.

The late 1980's/early 1990's were good years for the NBA, lots of exciting competitive basketball unlike todays league with the same two teams having dominance for three straight years.

Apparently in the earlier rounds, Charles Barkley said these NBA playoffs are so boring, I am going to watch the NHL playoffs instead.

Unfortunately, now the NHL final is a dud with all the lopsided victories.

From a business perspective, the NBA playoffs are not getting enough viewers for ESPN for the billions they spent on their rights.

I would laugh if Cleveland comes back from down 0-3 and wins 4 straight games to take the finals. This is unlikely to happen, but would be hilarious if it did.

I blame David Stern for putting the NBA on ESPN because he wanted more money and so, instead of expanding it on NBC, he went to abc and ESPN which are owned by Disney and that was a HUGE Mistake

Thank GOD for TNT, ever since they started showin' the NBA, they have AWESOME coverage and great commentators, but it's gottin' better thanks to Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith and Shaq, but also, I miss Craig Sager

as I said before, had the NBA allowed TNT to show the Finals instead of abc/ESPN, it would be SO MUCH BETTER

TNT has been USA Network's BIGGEST Competitor

I agree that TNT has the best NBA coverage. NBC was good too during the time they had the NBA. ABC and ESPN aren't nearly as good.

That we can agree with

I mean, when they 1st went to abc and ESPN both owned by Disney, they started every game with "Right Now" and I'm like, what does that have to do with the NBA?

also, if you can remember the theme to the NBA on NBC, that's what got EVERYONE FIRED UP for the game

and the theme was called "Roundball Rock" which was composed by Former News Anchor for WCBS 2 New York and Entertainment Tonight Anchor John Tesh who also composed the theme to Bobby's World w/Howie Mandell of TV's St. Elsewhere and Deal or No Deal Fame

Check it out!

and BTW, the NBA on NBC had great storytelling, plus they had AWESOME Commentators like Marv Albert, Mike Fratello, Bob Costas, Doug Collins, Ahmad Rashad, Hannah Storm, Summer Sanders and Magic Johnson

Oh No Warriors Won It All!

Golden State won it's 2nd Title in 3 years...

I feel that the Cavs won't win another one...and will I have to wait another 51 years for Cleveland to win a Championship?
