Curry with a clean look wasnt even close to making that shot. Hes 0-8 on go ahead this playoffs yet some people would take curry over jordan.

LeBron would have made that shot XD.

With an open look like that he would. Curry is like 70-80% with open threes but when hes under pressure he doesnt make them

Well regardless, it's all over, the Raptors are the champs! The twist ending to the season no one saw coming when it started or even when the playoffs started. Warriors were battered but Toronto also stepped up big time. It's a well deserved championship. This off season should be interesting though.

I think Kawhi is leaving for L.A. now more than ever. If the Raptors had lost this series, I think that would have convinced him to stay because he and his teammates would have had a huge chip on their shoulder to try and come back and do it again. But the fact that they did it, I can see him thinking, "I got this city a championship, so I'm good." And he goes to play for the Clippers. 

Klay Thompson's not going anywhere. Kevin Durant has a player option for next season, and given what just happened and the circumstances he's in now, I think he should take it, because if he tries to enter free agency fresh off a ruptured Achilles tendon, it's not gonna go well for him.

Actually watching the highlights that wasnt as open as i thought it was. Siakam was there late contested it. Still curry would make those shots more often than not when the game isnt on the line



Super happy to see Lowry win a ring. Seems like such a cool dude.



Durant's achilles tendon rupture is the injury you do not want to have and 12 to 18 month to recover from and rarely ever the same player. Thompson is out for the entire season. Curry is the last man standing.

Lebron needs a guard to assist him win a title. Curry leaves  the Warriors and joins Lakers and forms a forward-guard combo with Lebron James in  LA! Send Lonzo Ball and Kyle Kuzma to Warriors and make the trade now!

If not Curry what other players will the Lakers try to get to LA for the guard-forward combo that is needed to challenge for an NBA title? James Harden or Russel Westbrook in trade deal with Lakers. Get rid of Kyle Kuzma and Lonzo Ball and get the star player now!

Anthony Davis signed up by Lakers and the Lakers are now instant favourites to win the 2019/20 NBA championship. I forgot about Davis, well he is a great signing for the Lakers.

Warriors still the team to beat if they can get klay fully healthy for the playoffs. But if lakers can get kyrie then they should beat the warriors without durant. No excuse for lebron and the lakers if they fail to make the finals with davis and kyrie

The Warriors are going to be nowhere as good next season as they where this season.  If they can get somebody decent in return once they trade D'Angelo Russel midseason they might be good enough to make it out of the first round.  As for the Western Conference finals next year its going to be the Denver Nuggets versus the Lakers or Clippers.

It depends whether klay will be fully fit or not. Remember they made it to the finals without durant and they were in control of game 6 until klay went down.

Besides loosing Durant they also lost Iguodala and Cousins.  Curry is somewhat injury prone so they better hope he stays relatively healthy next season or the might not even make the playoffs.  As for the finals the Warriors got lucky that it actually went six games Toronto could have easily won that series in five games.   But I like the final outcome loosing three games at home made it more embarrassing for the Warriors.
