    Dude, 36, 13 and 9 averages. 36, 13 and 9. Yeah, the ball hog still managed to average 9 assists with his team shooting in the 20's. Did he "rebound hog" too? Lol

    Uhhhh, Curry's supporting cast:

    Iggy shot 52 percent
    Thompson shot 41 percent
    Barbosa shot 46 percent
    Livingston shot 48 percent
    Draymond Green 38 percent
    Barnes 37 percent

    Sit yo a** down.

    Lol!

    After comparing how well Golden State's role players shot the ball and how pathetic Cleveland's role players played, here's some more info to refute the nonsense you just spewed...

    Iggy is a proven player and has always had a reputation of being a great defender and a good "Jack of all trades" player, at least he has an All Star nod and 1st Team Defense under his belt. JR. Smith either goes on fire or shoots your team out of the game and on top of that, doesn't guard anyone. In the Finals, it was the latter. Shumpert has some potential but accomplished nothing in this league and Mozgov's biggest highlight of his career was getting dunked on by Blake Griffin. And you do realize that David Lee was statistically one of the best power forwards in the league, right? It's this simple, the best and deepest team won the championship this year and beat a team that lost two of their star players.

    You know nothing, Jon Snow.

    Iggy wouldn't start for the Cavs. Sorry, bro.

    Keep making all the excuses you want.

    No, no no....

    Don't manipulate dude. That sh** is pathetic.

    First: I couldn't care less about Lebron's point totals. Again... he shot like sh**, just took 40 shots a game. Until the end of games... then he stopped shooting so he could get his assist numbers up to trick casual fans into thinking he was something other than busy.


    Now. Don't pull bench players. Stick to what I was speaking on- starting fives.

    Barnes - 37%
    Green - 38%
    Bogut - 44%
    Thompson - 40%

    It's much better than Cavs cast, but don't manipulate the stats.

    Well considering Iggy plays the same position as LeBron, yeah, you might be right. Shumpert, JR and Mozgov are not more important than Iggy lol. You're sniffing some good sh*t, hook me up with your dealer, bro.

    Jesus, some of the stuff you say is cringe worthy. I didn't try to manipulate anything, I clearly pointed out that even Golden State's scrubs were outplaying Cleveland's starters and even gave the shooting percentages for BOTH the starters and reserves when you asked for it, that's laying everything out on the table, no manipulating. You giving Golden State's stats for their starters only helps my case lol. Yeah, LeBron was only getting assists because his teammates were just shooting lights out, huh. I mean, thank the lord that at least Mozgov can make wide open dunks.

    Just accept defeat, bro. It's just an online argument, not a big deal, at the end of the day, you're still the average American height and have a cute girlfriend, I'm sure you'll get over it.

    Defeat? It's not about defeat or winning. haha

    GS's supporting cast shot better than Cavs.... ok...?

    But acting like their talent level was so far superior is absurd.

    The issue that you're having is this:
    The Cavs, as they were constructed last year, really only had two consistent sources of offense: Kyrie and LeBron.

    The only other decent offensive players were Kevin Love (sometimes) and J.R. Smith (50% of the time at best).

    Sometimes (sometimes), Delly, Mozgov, or Shump might chip in a 15-20 point game. Occasionally a miracle would happen and T2 would score 15-20.

    But... that's it. That's all they had offensively. Miller and Jones' shots had long since left the building, Harris is a late-round rookie finding his way, and the other options were Haywood, Marion, and Perkins.

    In the end, the Cavs ran into the same issue the Grizz had: they could play good defense (because Shump, T2, Mozgov, and Delly are primarily defensive players), but they just didn't have the offense due to injuries. And they didn't have the offense because they really only had two offensive options: LeBron and J.R. Smith (who is really only viable 50% of the time at best).


    Yes, Griffin should have built the team in some fashion as to prepare for potential injuries to its two stars considering they were both injury prone. In hindsight, probably would have been smarter to pick up Nate Robinson over Kendrick Perkins. But he didn't, and GS got lucky and got to play a Cavs team with essentially one offensive option and no worthwhile depth.


    At the end of the day, while LeBron did drag the Cavs to the Finals, I kinda feel like he also shot us. Marion, Perkins, Jones, and Miller were his guys, and it's likely we traded Wiggins away for Love because of his demands as well. Unfortunately, his guys did absolutely nothing for us other than sit on the bench and miss 3 pointers when it mattered, where if we could have picked up a Nate Robinson or Mo Williams (I think he was a free agent at some point in the season) and had Wiggins instead of Love, we would've probably been in much better shape.
