LAST GAME NOT PLAYED YET
ALL TIMES EASTERN
Los Angeles Clippers @ Golden State Warriors
Los Angeles Clippers
Golden State Warriors
Considering Gasol, Noah, and Gobert are all centers that leaves you with just Leonard and Green to defend the 3. Kanter is irrelevant, just have the other 4 throw it around til one's open and shoot a 3.
At this point it's almost laughably boring. When your team is so dominant, and your team has a player that is significantly better than even the second best player in the world, you know it's time to revise some NBA history. Right now there is an anti-Curry narrative floating around basketball pundits and social media users because their "GOAT" Michael Jordan is being threatened by the dominance of Steph. Jordan needed Pippen in every sense of the word. No Scottie, no excellence. Jordan was a manufacturered super star (though to be fair, no where near the amount that LeShit is). Curry needs no help. The play he delivers every night is nothing short of magical. 5 on 1 and the guy can dribble out of trouble, fade away for a heavily contested 3, or dish it out in mesmerizing fashion. We already shut that unfunny fat ass Charles Barkley up when our "jump shooting" team became the most dominant team in NBA history and won it all in a fitting conclusion to the 2015 season. As well as this team treats myself and other fans, they did something I didn't think they could do. They got better. This year is undeniable proof that they are the best NBA franchise, and the best NBA dynasty (back to back titles), which by the way, is something the Spuredditors could never do. Unfortunately I'm becoming a bit desensitized to their dominance, but of course I love watching them play. Especially Steph. Now I know how Bulls fans felt in the 90's except 10 fold. Added bonus when Riley is part of the post game press conference, she's so funny. Anyways, I know you non-Warrior fans have high hopes for your teams, which is admirable, but c'mon. Be realistic here, no team can beat Curry and co.
I'll see you guys at Oracle!
>Who is the face of the Chicago Bulls
He's not close to the level of any of the other players listed.
Most of those players on the offensive teams draw double teams and still put up high scoring games. Doug is an after thought on the bulls.
There's only one of those in the league right now.
WHO /UNDEFEATED/ HERE?
FUTURE NBA CHAMPS THE TORONTO RAPTORS
where the FUCK are all the raptors haters now?
Toronto practically just WON durant
Is Evan Fornier the best kept secret in the NBA?
So where the FUCK are all the Raptors haters now huh? We just beat the Oklahoma Shitty Blunder is a tight game. We fucking OBLITERATED them in the last minutes and completely humiliated Westbrook and Durant. They had to cry to the refs to get some easy points and still lost. Raptors are so fucking legit you better have the entire team in your fantasy league. Guess what? No really, guess what?? Kyle Lowry is going to be MVP. DeRozan is going to win Finals MVP. Bismack Byombo is going to be the DPOTY and Bruno Caboclo is going to win Most Improved Player because of his outstanding performance so far. We are going to cruise our way to the championship. Drake is going to drop the hottest album of all time in celebration of our NBA Championship.
Get fucked, rest of the league
>ever having below 40% from 3
>not shooting 60% from somewhere
>not making 282 threes in a season while keeping high percentages
As I was saying there's only one elite shooter
>Harden takes a jump shot with the defender breathing nearby
>This somehow is a foul
derek fisher because phil just needed a fallguy and knew exactly who would do the job
>he now remembers when the Raptors started out hot last year
>he now remembers when the Raptors were the best team in the East for the first half of the season
>he now remembers the Raptors getting swept by old man Pierce
>he thinks this year will be different
Go back to reddit with your grantland garbage and meme shots please.
/sp/ is the home of stepback mid range 2s. No one cares for your shit 3 point shooters when there are better players like Derozan and Waiters.
>less than 50%
>FROM THE RESTRICTED AREA
>not having the highest 3% ever recorded in a season
>not having atleast one 3 in 127 games
>not having any of these stats when the ball is in your hand literally every posesion
clips-dubs thread where?
>JVG is gushing
he missed us =3
>OKC fans being smug all gamethread
>literally vanish out of sheer embarassment at the end of the game
It's funny, the first time I saw the new Clippers logo I thought it looked like shit but now I've seen it a few times I think it looks even worse. Second worst logo in the NBA after the Wizards
Clippers literally have the best jerseys in the league. Nice and simply with a clean logo. Hawks have the second best jerseys, all unique.
I agree those weren't too good.
>Clippers literally have the best jerseys in the league.
It's not even funny. The Warriors are just so fucking good. That PLUS they get help from the refs (Curry gets Jordan treatment). They are the most dominant team in the past decade and will win another ring. FUCK I hate Golden State
When Dame and CJ are hot I don't see how you can stop this offense.
>tfw same record as the Spurs
>beat the best team in the west
oh god caseys going to get an extension isnt he
>finally give your best bigman significant 4th quarter minutes after an entire fucking season of ignoring him
>he comes up with clutch rebounds, blocks and shots
is casey the most elite coach in the NBA?
AHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHA FUCK KD FUCK WESTBRICK FUCK THE CHOKELAHOMO SHITTY PLUNGER THATS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU DISRESPECT LIL B TAKE THAT L FAGGOTS THE RAPTORS ARE THE BET TEAM IN THE LEAGUE AND DEROZAN IS THE MOST CLUTCH PLAYER IN THE LEAGUE AND LOWRY GOT THE BIGGEST BOOTY IN THE GAME TBHFAM AHAHAHAHAHHAH BREAK YO FOOT AGAIN FUCKING STARVING ASS NIGGA AHAHAHAHAHAHHAHH RBL WINS ONCE AGAIN RAPS FO LIFE BRUH
How can you stop that which is nothing to stop?
Being 5-0 feels so fucking good man
Anyone else know this feel?
That was an INTENSE game though
not even mad
warriros were up big clippers showed heart and came back to even lead, it's just the 5th game in the season litterally doesn't mean shit
I'm about to smoke my 1st bowl in 2 years and go to taco bell warriros can go get fucked
6-0 feels better 2bh
One of these things is not like the others.
dammit Philly can you do anything right?
memerriors bandwagons EVERYWHERE! disgusting my nigga. desu.
who /rbl/ here?
>not even mad
>abandons the thread when his team gets btfo after talking shit the whole time
>it d-doesn't matter
I thought you said the Warriors got lucky in the playoffs senpai? Why didn't Clutch Paul sink his three point attempt in crunch time like Steph?
>CP3 lights up Klay all day
>Will now be a meme tomorrow and continued to be called a choker
Are the Craptors gonna have their best season ever again and get swept in the playoffs again?
Not him but I'm not scared at all. Spurs have two losses and have flaws. Warriors are undefeated and have no flaws. And I know, despite how much you'll deny this, that deep down you hate it that Curry and co. will repeat before the Spurs ever have a chance. Get fucked Spuredditor
what clippers need is a perimeter DEFENDER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
they need a 3 and d guy!!! like a demarre carrol, a kawhii leonard!!!! a tony ALLEN!
they will make a trade before the deadline!!! CAP IT! they have too much offense!!!
lance, pierce, crawford!! needs more D!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Reminder the Warriors continue to prove they aren't a meme team. Meme team is another way to say "overrated" and the Warriors have proved they are anything but overrated. Same applies to Curry.
Neither have the warriors.
>and NEVER had runs like Curry is doing.
Duncan back2back MVP seasons
Lmao youre getting exposed little nigga. I bet your shaking as you're replying to my post
> Get fucked Spuredditor
Why do Warriors fans say this when they're hardcore redditors too. They didn't get threads here until meme curry existed.
Official non reddit /sp/ teams that have been here from the start
All the other fans are fairweather as fuck and only post here when they're good. Not ONE Warriors thread when they were shit and not ONE spuds thread after they got BTFO. Terrible fans
>Neither have the Warriors
Yeah, but their dominance is young and blossoming. The Spurs have had TWENTY YEARS to try and pull something together since they got Duncan.
And don't forget, they are the only team to give LeBron a ring twice (lost to the fucking Thunder and let James Soften dominate them and that team got beat by LeBron).
And ALSO, all that shit talking that "w-we will see you in the postseason. W-wingstop!" And then you fucking CHOKE to the biggest chokers in sports. Stay mad you fat Mexican piece of shit redditor.
I'm sorry, but did the Warriors already repeat? Oh, that's right. The season isn't even over yet. In fact, it's only just started. Does being the best at this point count as a ring? Is that what you're saying? Because if you're saying that I can assure you that you're wrong. Why would you make this topic when the season is still going? The games are still being played right now and the Warriors have won titles for how many years now? They had one of the easiest playoff runs in history and just happened to only play teams ravaged by injury. But you know what? They still fucking suck. Warriors are one of the worst fucking franchises in NBA history, they lucked out last year and couldn’t even make the playoffs for 30 years or so. Maybe you should shut the fuck up before you make retarded topics like this. You know why? Because you're going to be embarrassed when the Warriors get exposed and someone bumps this topic. Oh look at that, the memes just came in and they're saying Curry is a meme chucker, just like before. Are you a fucking drunk? Are you retarded? Are you autistic? You are a fucking idiot and you should never make a topic on this board again and I'm fucking serious. I almost have a feeling you're the only guy making all these Curryposting topics because you're a faggot who wants Currys dick up your ass. Fuck you, be good at something in YOUR life and then maybe try to troll these fucking conservatives on the board, like I give a fuck. It's so easy to spot out your threads now, you're a retard. Always doing stupid shit like this. Why don't you try to be a good poster? Just for once? For once in your fucking life try not to make a topic like this. That's just you, you're always right at getting it wrong. Fuck you. You are nothing.
How are Cavs not an /sp/ team when they have /sp/: The Player
well what i meant was, they need an ELITE perimeter defender. Someone to shut down al lthe great forwards of the league. Tbh the PG position is becoming meme af. The forward position is underrated desu.
You can consider them /sp/ desu when they were shit they had the loyal fat fuck poster that was always here. I haven't seen that guy recently but he'll probably show up if you insult kyrie.
Kyrie Irving fucking sucks at basketball
THIS IS NOW AN OFFICIAL RBL GENERAL
NO MEME FANS ALLOWED, IF YOU WEREN'T HERE IN THE OFF-SEASON YOU ARE CONFIRMED FOR MEME BANDWAGON FAN CASUAL AF.
>Yeah, but their dominance is young and blossoming. The Spurs have had TWENTY YEARS to try and pull something together since they got Duncan.

Hahahaha getting a little mad there?
>irrelevant before 2013
>1 ring in 40 years
Honestly I think /nba/ will never recover from bandwagoning Lebron up 2-1 and getting BTFO. It's eternal!
I can't say i feel sorry for you, you actually thought delly could shut down the best shooter to ever play the game. You gotta live with that the rest of your lives.
>iggy shutting down MJ
just admit it /nba/ you've been defeated and will never recover. You bandwagoned Lebron up 2-1 during the finals and proceeded to get B-T-F-O. You spammed lelbron this, Delly that and now look at you! Sad and pathetic beaten like a black step child. what was you thinkin? what was you trying to prove? You grew up in the worst era of basketball ever and think flopping is okay. Well it's not and you're a faggot. I don't blame you for being mad, i blame you for being pathetic! 2-4 is a testament to your stupidity and you can't come back from that.
>two and four

Haha. Hahahaha. HAHAHAHAHA is that something that's worth noting? Meanwhile, the Warriors will have 50 wins by their 53rd game this season.
And yes, it is the Spurs fault that LeShit got a ring against the Thunder. The Thunder had THREE shitty postseason players (Soften, Durcant, and Westshit), and the Sperms still couldn't advance.
>getting a little mad there?
How could I? I'm a fan of the best team in the league, and that team has the future greatest player of all time on it. I'm doing quite alright actually. How's Aldridge working out for you? Built not bought right? HAHAHAHAHAHA
>yfw RBL won every game since day 1

Is Doc Rivers the most overrated coach in the league?
>Lakers suck? lol no, we are tanking on PURPOSE to get ben simmons and complete the new chanpionship squad...
russell = magic
clarkson = scott
randle = worthy
simmons = kareem
WE OUT HERE!
I'm sorry, but did Chris Paul already choke? Oh, that's right. The season isn't even over yet. In fact, it's only just started. Does losing to the best team in the conference with a broken finger really count as a loss? Is that what you're saying? Because if you're saying that I can assure you that you're wrong. Why would you make this topic when the season is still going? The games are still being played right now and the Paul has been ELITE for how many years now? They had one of the toughest playoff runs in history and just happened to only play teams while not having any depth. But you know what? Chris Paul is still the best PG in the league. Warriors are one of the worst fucking franchises in NBA history, they lucked out last year and couldn’t even make the playoffs for 30 years or so. Maybe you should shut the fuck up before you make retarded topics like this. You know why? Because you're going to be embarrassed when Chris Paul wins a ring and Curry/Westbrook get exposed and someone bumps this topic. Oh look at that, the memes just came in and they're saying Curry is a meme chucker, just like before. Are you a fucking drunk? Are you retarded? Are you autistic? You are a fucking idiot and you should never make a topic on this board again and I'm fucking serious. I almost have a feeling you're the only guy making all these CP0 memes cause you're secretly an inch shorter than him and you're not a millionaire Olympian. Fuck you, be good at something in YOUR life and then maybe try to troll these fucking conservatives on the board, like I give a fuck. It's so easy to spot out your threads now, you're a retard. Always doing stupid shit like this. Why don't you try to be a good poster? Just for once? For once in your fucking life try not to make a topic like this. That's just you, you're always right at getting it wrong. Fuck you. You are nothing.
>how was your childhood
It was great. Got to watch really fun teams with Latrell, Mugsy, Jameson, Baron and Monte. Upset over Dallas was a great moment as well. Patience has paid off since now I get to watch our 21st century MJ dominate the league.
Fuck I'm hearing things that D rose is going to leave Chicago but who would take his broken body at all why the fuck would rose want to leave I mean at this point he's only thinking about money greedy ass hole.
wonder how many schools regret this
the funny part is that Curry didn't even play PG in college until his junior year. He was an undersized two guard who just ran off of screens constantly.
>This man can HIT a game winning shot.
you will miss him.
Ever since his first injury I knew rose wouldn't be the same but, holy shit this guy went way fucking down the drain for the Bulls he's always getting injured now can't play the same anymore if you notice he's always careful when he plays now so he doesn't fuck himself over more then he already is I'm heating rumors the Bulls will part ways with him this year but really who would take rose the team wouldn't get anything but a broken player.
Do you guys rank Joel Embiid above or below d rose? Embiid has never (and most likely will never) play a game but he's only $13m/3 years which 76ers can waive eventually. Meanwhile rose has good (but will never play a full season again) production for being the highest played player on the bulls
Yeah, I have no idea why he went for that shot at all, especially when he could've passed and/or easily gotten around and tied.
Think that's the other thing about the Warriors, they have that psychological shit on you. They were down by 10 and people thought they threw the lead.
Then Barnes scores two back to back 3's in the first two minutes of the 4th and it's back to normal.
>mfw based Steph
I see nothing but bad decisions from him though. In tonight's game, why are Crawford and Austin Rivers getting the ball instead of CP3 in crunch time? Why is Crawford driving to the rim instead of Blake?

Why is Hinkie always running bros? You'd think he'd be in better shape with how much he runs
>Draymond Green is the best defender in the league
Yeah like how he cursed him last year where he won MVP and kucked LeBron out of yet another ring?
Curry can't be cursed because Curry actually deserved the MVP over LeBron unlike Rose/Durant.
>Draymond Green is the best defender in the league
In due time
Where do you all go to stream or DL games. I'm not looking to stream live.
I've been following the NBA this year but I never realized how fucking difficult it is to record certain games. My parents subscribe to a ton of channels, but it seems like half the time I go to watch a game it tells me it didn't tape because they don't get the channel. It's infuriating because I don't know or understand who airs which games and why.
Does anyone else feel my pain?
Will he recover after THIS one?
In due time
some memeplayers forever allergic to finger jewelry:
demarcuCked (by his) cousins
Anyone have a link to stream or DL the Warriors vs Clips game?
thx in advance
Smfh senpai, Curry should be on the cover of my 2k game, but they had to cater to overrated crunchwrap man, and the "future"
Now I have Bustany Davis on my cover because all the Curry ones are sold out.

fuck its good to be elite, get ready for us to make it to the conference semi-finals this year, americunts.
Reddit is literally Warriors and Spurs fags getting off on themselves 24/7. Don't know how anyone uses that garbage unironically. At least on /sp/ we don't give a fuck about gay math shit or meme 3s.
Also not that guy Clippers are fucking shit but Warriors are definition of leddit approved. I assume everyone that comes to this general to shitpost about them just came from reddit to slobber on that warrior dick karma.
ppg stats are always inflated in the first few games for some players, like westbrook, curry, and the two you mentioned here (lillard and beal). without aldridge, i could see lillard averaging 24 or so but 27 seems steep, and beal just isnt good enough to keep 25 going all year... but drummond. how the fuck is this kid doing it. 20/20? even if it goes down, he could legit average 16-18 boards this season, which would be amazing.
I could see Lillard get 27. He lost basically all of his offensive counterparts this Summer and CJ improved but I doubt he keeps up the 22 PPG. Lillard's efficiency should drop but Portland is overachieving like hell right now being 3-2 considering how awful the team looks on paper.
There are going to be a lot of nights where the team just passes to Lillard since no one else can create a shot except him and CJ on that team, so his PPG should be a bit inflated this season.
I got a nickname for Porzingis
can we take a moment to laugh at the lelkers and all their bandwagoners who have since started telling people they don't like basketball
IT is the only Celtic playing well
Who /3 lottery picks/ here
im not hating though, i mean am i simply supposed to sit back and watch someone chuck up 30 foot 3s with an arm in their face and score 45+% of the time? I mean what the fuck do you even do double team with a 7 footer 5 feet beyond the 3 point line?
why even go through the season, just give the warriors another ring then, because if the choice is either let curry drop 30 points every game at will, or commit to trying to shut him down and give the rest of the warriors team an easier shot then there literally is no stopping them.
Well they are the best offensive and defensive team in the league without a doubt, and the best team overall, but this is why games are played, right? Every sport has a 'best' team every year, just because one player makes the game look easy as fuck doesn't mean he will get the MVP and win another ring again. And it's great because it makes people so mad for no reason.
>It's surreal and incredible. It's not like it's a skill anybody can develop.
Literally a reddit comment about a meme shot. Not everyone likes watching non stop ball chucking you pleb.
you cant beat them though, curry just had the worst game of the season against the 2nd best team in the west and he went 7/11 on 3s and got 30 points. Who the fuck is going to beat them? More importantly how?
There's nothing wrong with that, though. I get that it's frustrating if you don't like them, but it was the same way with those Kobe and Shaq teams. Shaq was so dominant and unstoppable you kinda think ''what's the point'' but then you realize it happens only once a generation and it's much more interesting and fun than Shit Tier championship teams like the 2011 Mavericks or something.
It's weird because there has never been a player like Curry ever, and then the guys around him are literally the perfect fit. This could be a situation like the 90s where one team completely dominates while really good players miss out on rings
>This could be a situation like the 90s where one team completely dominates while really good players miss out on rings
Fine with me. There's nobody out there who doesn't have a ring that I desperately want to have one, except for various goofballs and personal favorites. Guys like Durant and Paul can fuck off. I'm all in on the Curry train
>I get to watch our 21st century MJ dominate the league.
Maybe, butlers d hasn't been great and while he's shooting 50 percent from 3 he's only taking 3 a night, Beals shooting 7 and hitting almost half of them
Still, Beals turning the ball over a lot and butler isnt. It's close but I'd give a slight edge to beal but that might just be homerism haha
Gsw fan here.
34. Been watching since hardaway/mullin/blah blah
Would you curry haters take this deal:
Remove 3 pt line, but also add a 1 pt line that extends out half way to the free throw line?
