Here we go.

You guys know how this works. If the Cavs win then it means we're better. If the Dubs win it's only just a meaningless December game. :D

Also Merry Christmas to you guys.

I will give the Warriors props for winning a title with home grown talent before getting another star opposed to succombing to mediocrity and then signing with 2 other stars.

On a side note , I'm thankful that Christmas falls on a Sunday.

Also don't think that the Warriors would make a disgrace out of their franchise player by writing a letter renouncing him to their city. Do you think the Warriors would pen a letter like this if Curry left for Cahrlotte? My apologies to Cavs for previous calling LBJ theAkron King. He is no king. He is a: Self proclaimed Akron King.

Merry Christmas Cavs fans! (http://www.espn.com/nba/news/story?id=5365704)


Dear Cleveland, All Of Northeast Ohio and Cleveland Cavaliers Supporters Wherever You May Be Tonight;

As you now know, our former hero, who grew up in the very region that he deserted this evening, is no longer a Cleveland Cavalier.

This was announced with a several day, narcissistic, self-promotional build-up culminating with a national TV special of his "decision" unlike anything ever "witnessed" in the history of sports and probably the history of entertainment.

Clearly, this is bitterly disappointing to all of us.

The good news is that the ownership team and the rest of the hard-working, loyal, and driven staff over here at your hometown Cavaliers have not betrayed you nor NEVER will betray you.

There is so much more to tell you about the events of the recent past and our more than exciting future. Over the next several days and weeks, we will be communicating much of that to you.

You simply don't deserve this kind of cowardly betrayal.

You have given so much and deserve so much more.

In the meantime, I want to make one statement to you tonight:

"I PERSONALLY GUARANTEE THAT THE CLEVELAND CAVALIERS WILL WIN AN NBA CHAMPIONSHIP BEFORE THE SELF-TITLED FORMER 'KING' WINS ONE"

You can take it to the bank.

If you thought we were motivated before tonight to bring the hardware to Cleveland, I can tell you that this shameful display of selfishness and betrayal by one of our very own has shifted our "motivation" to previously unknown and previously never experienced levels.

Some people think they should go to heaven but NOT have to die to get there.

Sorry, but that's simply not how it works.

This shocking act of disloyalty from our home grown "chosen one" sends the exact opposite lesson of what we would want our children to learn. And "who" we would want them to grow-up to become.

But the good news is that this heartless and callous action can only serve as the antidote to the so-called "curse" on Cleveland, Ohio.

The self-declared former "King" will be taking the "curse" with him down south. And until he does "right" by Cleveland and Ohio, James (and the town where he plays) will unfortunately own this dreaded spell and bad karma.

Just watch.

Sleep well, Cleveland.

Tomorrow is a new and much brighter day....

I PROMISE you that our energy, focus, capital, knowledge and experience will be directed at one thing and one thing only:

DELIVERING YOU the championship you have long deserved and is long overdue....

Dan Gilbert

Majority Owner

Cleveland Cavaliers

Wasn't a bad call. Dangerous super late gather-stop underneath an opponent going airborne. I really wish that play wasn't a part of the game. So dangerous. PS wow did KD fake Bron out his Nikes there.

That said, yeah Draymond is nuts lmao.

Yeah that's the one play I think the NBA needs to define clearly. They are way too inconsistent with that call but it was called correctly in this case. I also agree it's dangerous.

kdspurman
12-25-2016, 04:06 PM
The talk of guarding all 5 positions is overstated anyway IMO. Yea Kawhi/Lebron may guard a 5 on a switch, but it's not a regular thing. (unless there's super small ball happening) And Draymond isn't out there guarding PG's either unless it's on a switch.

But all are capable, so it's special for sure.

tredigs
12-25-2016, 04:07 PM
Yeah, no.
I understand you watch one team and are new to the league, but yes. He guards centers for looong stretches every night (Giannis/Bron/Kawhi do not for longer than a switch), and he guards down to PG's regularly on switches. Literally won the Dubs two games in one week ISO blocking a PG who tried to drive on him (Schroeders 2x in the final 30 seconds).


Bron here biting on Dubs jump shooting all over, I like it.

Pretty ridiculous if you're in favor of kicking a player out of the game for biting his tongue and running away from action on a terrible call.

Good on Cleveland though, they got that 3rd and that will handicap his D all night. I could def see him getting kicked too. He's been getting hosed and is already amped. Bad combo for him.

Its not ridiculous when he does it every 2 games.... that isnt even an exaggeration either... he literally does that same crap every other game... If it was once in a while fine but this is him all the time and others get techs for less so its kind of annoying what he gets away with when you factor in his track record. I dont want any other player ejected for that.... its literally the 2nd time he has done that this game and we arent even at half.

Players are getting techs for running away from the play and not screaming at the ref as they do it? Good luck proving that. I see it in every game and it is never called. Enough. Back to the game. Stop derailing with ref *****ing. Be happy they blew the call.

I do. I think he's the most matchup proof, but I also think KD is RIGHT there at the SF position and that the likely Finals matchup could swing some votes in his favor. Curry is right there too but he's more inconsistent.

KD is definitely close. I agree with Mark Jackson when he said that we forgot how good KD is. He got over looked last yr because of what Curry was doing and LBJ will always get his love.

It's unreal that we get to see the top 3 players in the game on the court at the same time.

Why? It's just another game. Should the Cavaliers admit that this is their finals, playing the Warriors in the regular season? Neither team has anything to prove to each other. The Cavaliers achieved the near impossible and brought a championship to Cleveland but that fire is near out and the NBA has moved on from the Cavaliers. The Warriors will continue to be a juggernaut and other teams will contend against them but this isn't some rivalry that the Cavaliers need to get up for.

Curry was bad, but they still shot better as a team overall. Not sure how many times Cleveland will shoot under 40 percent. Golden St probably won't turn the ball over like that too often though either.

Best PG against him is Avery Bradley. He dominates Westbrook, and Irving doesn't guard him - he can't.

Kyrie guarded him plenty in the finals.

90% of the time he was gone on the first pick. A lot of double/hedging by the Cavs.

To his larger point that a quicker PG causes Curry to play worse, for many reasons including how often they switch action, it's just never been the case consistently. Clearly he hasn't been his best against the Cavs though. This next Finals should they both make it will be interesting to say the least.

Yeah, but whenever Curry didn't call the pick he guarded him straight up, whereas the Dubs hid Curry on JR most of the finals. Kyrie and Bron were constantly working on getting Curry to switch onto them.

They held the Cavs to 38.9% from the field and 34% from three. They couldn't do a thing offensively. The game was a toss-up that ended in their favor due to too many Dubs TO's and a bit of luck.

Get OUTTA here with that nonsense, lol

The NBA league average is 35.5% from 3 and you "held us" to 34.3% WOW great defense, lol but you forget to mention that the combined 3-15(20%) that Shump, Frye and RJ shot was almost exclusively on WIDE open 3's... If you didn't watch the game and want to credit that to your teams defense, go ahead. It's not something I would count on. But why would you even bring it up when the Warriors shot 30% which is even lower than league average. Yes, I know the Cavs average for this season is 40% but we were also without JR, so hard to factor that in.

Another thing you didn't even mention is the Cavs 32 FTA.. WAY up from their own 24.7 FTA and the league average 23.2.. Way to keep em off the line..NOT. You all hit at a higher clip but I wouldn't attribute FT misses to defense, lol

I'll give you all the 38.9% FG but it's not something I would really brag about, considering you 1) still lost with a team shooting that poorly and 2) you didn't get key stops when you needed them...

Yes, your Warriors did commit more TO than us but isn't that a testament to the Cavs? I mean Kyrie had 7 steals.. 14 of your teams 20 TO's were steals.. Some kinda credit has to be given to the other side.

The stat you need to worry about is getting 13 points from your bench.. You had 7 guys come off your bench, that is ridiculous. Your bench won at least 1 game in the Finals for you.. Now it's a complete weakness.

KD going 2/9 in the 4th and 0/5 in the final 9 minutes.. No credit given there? Or is it lack of a clutch gene?

It's 1 regular season game, to be sure but don't talk about luck, you sound foolish.

Watched parts of the last quarter of the game as the gym didn't have the NFL network. Cle and SPAK (Self Proclaimed Akron King) are meh. Bucks have outscored then this season I believe and I would expect that to continue during the playoffs.

Don't see curry being bad for a long period of time

Good comeback by Cavs and clutch from Kyrie.. Warriors will destroy them in Oracle and still think Warriors win the finals

Oracle will be tough for us but I wouldn't make guarantees!

Cavs/Warriors are a legit rivalry.
