you think they'll trade him? They've built a solid squad around him, I don't follow much nba news, but based off the team on the court, I don't see why he'd want to leave, nor why Pels would want him to leave.

Good learning exp for the Pels, was a sweep sure but they almost got a game from the team to beat. The meltdown in game 3 will serve as a good lesson for Brow and co.

For the sake of a great series, I'm hoping the Grizz advance. Nothing against the Blazers but I'd love to see the contrasting styles of splash and finesse go up against hustle and grit in a 7-game series.

they are not close to contending. they have one great player. your team has a great player too- look at what is around him. Now look at what is around AD. Without upgrades they likely don't make the playoffs next year

The Warriors are a lot tougher than "finesse" implies. On D they are really tough, and the Griz learned that in the regular season. The one time the Grizzlies beat the Warriors Bogut didn't play.

Had the Pelicans been healthy this year they would have been higher than an 8th seed.

had the West been healthy they don't even make it. AD is future MVP candidate and maybe he can will them to an 8th seed with this roaster again but that is it. Without improving the roaster I think a healthy OKC and Uath both pass them by and the only teams i can see dropping out unless something drastic happens are Dallas and maybe Portland if LMA leaves and they are left empty handed.

Seriously who other then Davis do you see as a building block on this team? I like Anderson and think he fits next to Davis. Asik is great bench guy and Whithey has real potential even though he has played next to no games his first two years. unless your still betting on Gordon I don't see much. Btw, if you are i got a 99 altima to sell you that used to run great.

Pelicans screwed up their team by trying to build too quickly. they have no 1st round picks and assets to really trade.

Traded 2 first round picks for Dru Holiday
(which ended up being Nerlans Noel and Elfrid Payton)

Traded 2015 1st round pick for Omer Asik, who's a FA after this year.

Finesse doesn't imply a lack of toughness, you can have both. Sergey Kovalev the boxer is tough as nails, a granite chin, he looks for the fight and loves exchanges, but his punch repertoire and ring generalship are exemplary of finesse at the elite level. Zero correlation.

STRONGLY disagree. This exact squad right here would be right in the middle of the west. They played better than most playoff seeds we've faced this year. Its a good squad, by no means a finished team, but they are versatile and have a lot of talent. The most impressive thing they showed is, other than SA, they played the best team defense vs us I've seen all year. And they're ball movement on offense was pretty solid.

This team can contend as is. If they upgrade at C, they would be pretty scary.

You Warrior fans love talking up competition you destroy. The West the best ever this year, the Pels are contenders. I suspect that tune is going to change to crying about the refs when the Griz actually challenge you next round

lol, whats there to gain by talking up a 4-0 sweep of an 8 seed by a 1 seed? I'm strictly talking about the Pels, wether they faced us and lost or faced someone else, it makes no difference, they played some good basketball. Not consistantly enough for the playoffs, but they had some spurts of really really good ball, and being a young team that's maturing together I expect that they are going to learn from this experience, and if they can play up to the potential they flashed during this series, a lot of teams are going to have a hard time with them. I'm just giving Pels props for the good stuff they showed, that's it. Don't help me. My team won 67 games this season, we're championship or bust, anything less is a failure, talking up a first round win does absolutely nothing for me.

Only once the game was decided. You can't just not try 1st three quarters and then play hard at the end. Warriors may have got away with it the other day but that's because of the elite long range shooting ability that their players.
