Id take the Warriors then Spurs.

Igoudala in his prime is the X factor. And then of course the Spurs. Though Parker and Ginobili would be neutralized by GS's defense.

still the Warriors. The only player better than Durant and Curry is Lebron.

Parker and Ginobili have went against some legit defenses/defenders in their time and been successful. Those guys in their prime are far different than who they have been the last few years.

Iím aware of that. Iím not sure if they could neutralize GS is what Iím saying.

Spurs look hella sexy though with Rudy off the bench. I still like Iggy off the bench, and prime Zara isnít sorry. He actually use to be very effective defensively and on the boards. With prime Durant I like the Warriors

Spurs would be nasty as hell. I'd say a toss up between them and the warriors.

Toss up between Spurs/Warriors. By todayís rules, the Warriors have an advantage but with prime Gasol/Aldridge they have a height/skill advantage in the post, and with Parker/Manu in their peaks, they can dictate tempo. Kawhi obviously obviously is a huge factor as well

The question is whether you believe the Spurs of 2003 can beat the Warriors of 2017 with a prime Iggy off the bench. Aldridge and Gasol in their primes May be equivalent to Duncan but Iím not even sure if thatís the case.

They simply arenít as good so itís difficult to compare since Duncan isnít on the team and those guys virtually play the same position and canít really hit the 3

Rudy is a better team player outside of his prime. Your takes are absolutely sickening .to my stomach

I want to say Warriors, but prime Duncan... I think he would give them a damn good run for their money.

Cavs because of JR Smith.

Nobody's beating a Super Death Lineup with prime Curry, Thompson, Iguodala, Durant and Green.

Pau+LMA eat up Draymond. Manu+TP+Kawhi won't beat Curry+Klay+KD but you've got Rudy Gay and Danny Green (who is an elite defender). If Pop was able to get one game with just Kawhi, what makes you think he can't beat the Wrriors with THAT team? I think you guys are forgetting how good Pau Gasol was. 20/10/4/2 blocks player who would fit right in with the Spurs system. And you guys also forget that it was Pau Gasol who dominated Dwight.

The beginning of the season's Cavs would've been a problem. Prime Wade, D-Rose, Korver, Bron.

Other than that it's still GS. Now you just add a prime D.West to the mix.

Spurs.

ROX cooked up a defensive plan/blue print to slow GS down a bit. Spurs have the talent and coaching to cook something up. If they can slow the game down and lock up on D. They can use Pau and LA to punish the Spurs. You can't give Pops that much talent and bet against him. They have the winning culture and clutch players to close things out too.
