Golden state wins, and I win a $20 bet (I never watch basketball, but I always root for the underdog).

Underdogs? Lol

Weren't they? Like I said, I don't follow basketball, but even I know Lebron is good.



Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

The Warriors are your 2017 champions. 129-120

LeBron is now 3-5 in the finals, but he was a superhuman. All credit goes to him. No one can put this against him

Agreed.  The Warriors have 5 guaranteed hall of fame inductees on their team and they were already strong last year.  Him losing in this finals isn't something you can stick to him, imo.  His performance was insane and if this HAD gone to 7, he would probably be the runner up in Finals MVP consideration.

5 hof? I can only think of 4. I seriously have no idea who that 5th would be

They lost last year, but they have 5 guaranteed hall of fame inductees on their team, the two best shooters in the league (Curry and Klay), the second best player in the world (Durant), another star who isn't on their level but easily could be the centerpiece of his own team (Green), and another recognized great (Iguodala).  And they have a very skilled bench.  They weren't the underdogs, the Cavs were, significantly.



Cavs bench nowhere to be found. Damn.



Hmmmm I wonder if the NBA is still rigged? Crybabies

Igudola is almost certainly going to make it.  He won't be a fast inductee, but I am almost certain he'll make it in.  He has the stats, some significan achievements.  He won't be a fast inductee, but he'll make it in.



The critics of James legacy will argue James 3-5 in NBA Finals and he can not be regarded as good as NBA legends including: Jordan, Kobe, Magic, Kareem, etc. Basketball unlike golf, tennis, swimming or athletics is a team sport, you need other players to help you win.

I dont think he will make it but who knows. Its not guaranteed.

I'm just going by past inductees I've seen and he lines up with your late bloomer inductee.  He has achievements, consistency, and a good stat line, and is a two time champion now.  I think he'll make it, just not like Lebron, Durant, Curry, etc who will get in as soon as they're eligible.



Haha, that KD Nike commercial is savage on the critics, lol.

Great Finals for Durant, what a player.

LeBron's Finals record is uggggly, 3 for 8, but at least he went down shooting this time instead of bailing out.
