      Think Golden State will win this one pretty easy but would love to see the Cavs Shock them.

      LeBron is the MVP of this series either way.

      Just had to jinx it didn't you.

      But agreed, LBJ has outplayed absolutely everybody this series.

      I've not seen a team that's made the finals play such horrible defense. If Cavs were playing any defense at all this game would already be over. Cavs only down 7 is amazing considering how horrible they are playing.

      Think this is what everyone though the series would be rather than three blowouts a piece.

      I could watch this all day. Finally a see-sawing contest.

      Kyrie is key. Land his shots, Cavs win.

      Actually I'd rather see Draymon break his leg and the Warriors get blown out.

      Hate to tell you but this ain't about Kyrie, this is LeBron's time. He has to be the man for them to win. Right now he's trying to let other people do it for him. He has to take charge and put this team on his back. It's what Jordan would have done.

      Bottled a 3-1 lead in the finals with Steph nowhere to be seen. Tragic.

      I know that. But Kyrie had to support with points, LBJ wasn't going to out score GSW himself. No one else was going to step up in the 4th and give him the support he needed but Kyrie.

      And he did that with a huge 3.

      Has to leave for work at 71 all with 2 minutes to go in the 3rd. Got to look at the Intenet when the Bosses left some 3 hours later and saw the Cavs had Won!!! Get the f**k in...so happy for Le Bron.

      Can't wait to get home and watch the 4th quarter on replay. Going to get really stoned for that.   :D

      Fantastic. Well done to Lebron - a well deserved title. I used to love rooting against him, but he's more than earned the respect and appreciation of every sports fan. What a player.

      Gonna be interesting to see how the shots are shared now. There's a lot of alpha dog on that team now.

      Quite amusing considering Durant's 2010 tweet that is getting a lot of RT action at the minute.

      I knew it would never ever happen, but Durant was such a perfect fit for the Utah Jazz :(

      George Hill, Gordon Hayward, Kevin Durant, Derrick Favors and Rudy Gobert, with the likes of Dante Exum, Rodney Hood and Alec Burks off the bench - that's a genuine playoff team IMO. How I wish the Jazz would make that one big signing to share responsibilities with Hayward...

      Dude, you are dreaming....Jazz aren't anywhere near contention for anything :D

      Haha :D if you mean contention for the title, then you're right, but for the playoffs... that's not really true. They nearly made it last season and I think they would have done so if only they hadn't lost Favors, Gobert and Burks for such long periods of time

      But really...what's the use of making the playoffs if you can't compete. Right now there are two teams that have a chance....Cavs and Warriors. So if you really want to compete, you have to be aiming for them, not just aiming to make the playoffs.

      If Durant was a perfect fit for anyone, it was Boston :(

      But he sold his soul. I used to like him.

      The Warriors are hedging on health for their big 4 now. If anyone of them go down they are screwed because they are only going to have enough money to fill out the rest of their roster with bargain basement players. IMO, this isn't a move they should have made. But I'm glad they made it because I don't like their team (other than Steve Kerr).

      If it's Klay, then they're really screwed.
