100% agree.And if Perkins didn't get hurt in the 2010 Finals, the Celtics probably would have won the ring that year.
It's all hypothetical though, no one knows for sure. It makes for fun speculation, but I still don't believe any championship team should be diminished due to circumstances beyond their control.
Problem is, and I assume you are talking about D'Antoni, he had highly stacked teams at Phoenix whom he couldn't get them into the finals either.100% agree.
Every championship team deserves to be champions.
They won under the circumstances that were presented at the time.
As much as I think the Warriors were better than Toronto last year, that doesn't mean I don't think Toronto are deserved champs.
My point is that you can't really sack a coach that's running with the second best team over a 3 year period.
Meanwhile OKC have been surprisingly decent sans Rusty and with CP3.Russ averaging 35 with only one attempted 3 in his last 4. Surely it hasn't clicked?
I like WB. But he is the system, and he's not good enough.Meanwhile OKC have been surprisingly decent sans Rusty and with CP3.
Hard to say whether the problem is with Westbrook or The Rockets and Pringles system overall though. I suspect the latter myself..
I have some pretty mixed feelings about Pringles.Problem is, and I assume you are talking about D'Antoni, he had highly stacked teams at Phoenix whom he couldn't get them into the finals either.
I get the feeling Pringles might be safer than he deserves to be at this moment in time though, due to the fallout from Morey's tweet about Hong Kong/China.
That's all there is though, the offense and only plan A of that offense. He's horrible defensively, has no game feel and overplays the same guys at Thibs levels.I have some pretty mixed feelings about Pringles.
I mean losing to the Lakers and SA are hardly embarrassing. They're all time teams. And you wouldn't say the Suns teams were more loaded than them.
They also got pretty unlucky with some suspensions.
I hate the offense that Houston runs, but it can't be argued that it's effective.
Agree on the defensive end, except for the year they won 65 games. They seemed to have that end of the court sorted out for one season.That's all there is though, the offense and only plan A of that offense. He's horrible defensively, has no game feel and overplays the same guys at Thibs levels.
Toronto has been good for more than just last year and they actually won a title.Well obviously when I said "second best" I meant Warriors would be number 1.
Toronto were good last year. I personally believe Houston were better than them last year, but can see an argument that people would say Toronto is better.
I mean I think Houston beat the Warriors if Durant misses the whole series, Klay misses a couple and Looney misses games as well. Just like Toronto did.
And the two years before that Houston where >>>>>>>>>>>> Toronto. I mean you're basically saying you think the team that pushed the Warriors to 7 isn't as good as the team that was swept by the team that was swept by the Warriors.
And Houston easily beats Cavs from two years back. That Cavs team was terrible. Forget the fact that the Warriors swept them. It took that Cavs team 7 games to beat a very average Indy team (Indy actually outscored the Cavs by 20 or 30 points over the series). And then it took the Cavs 7 games to beat the Celtics team in the ECF when the Celtics were missing their best player.
LeBron's amazing, but that team was an all time bad team around him.
Hope that is sarcasm because yeah they would need to.D-Lo cooking.
I don't even think we need to throw in our first pick for a trade for Simmons.
Obvious sarcasm is obvious.Hope that is sarcasm because yeah they would need to.
