No team has the depth they do and the additions of Tucker and Mbah Moute were huge

...Come playoffs...The rotations shorten to 7-8 players tops....Who cares about the regular season...Come playoffs the Warriors have the best 8 man rotation.

Warriors only have 4 great players. Durant, Curry, Thompson, and Green. The other players on their roster are average NBA players.

Value-wise I added more money to the Cavs to win the championship.

Apparently, there is some money agreeing with me on that because cavs were +850 about 2 days ago and now they are +600.


Golden State beat the cavs by 7 and 10 this year and that was when cleveland was an average team.

Cleveland won again tonight and didnt even really look that good.
What happens when cleveland starts getting it together?

Cavs to win it all is dead money... You think.. Hood.. Clarkson..Nance will show up come playoffs especially ECF & Finals if they make it.  Experience is huge in the playoffs...

Yet they have 0 chance of winning it all this season..  I have GS over Boston, i wouldnt be surprised if it was Cleveland over Houston/OKC... I would be shocked if it was GS vs Cleveland again

Your forgetting 1 big thing.  The Rockets don’t have a leader.  Harden is a great player but nothing close to a leader and neither is Chris Paul. And to say “the Warriors only have 4 great players”...those 4 players are the not only great they are elite. Pair those players with a better coach in Steve Kerr and you’ve pretty much have a dynasty formula. Come playoff time the difference will be obvious.

If Rockets didn't lose Harden for a few weeks they would be #1 likely, as they lost 2-3+ games without him. I agree and may also say Harden is best in the league right now.

This guy above me said Harden isn't elite. This guy is OUT of his mind. Chris Paul may have a bone to pick with you as well.

I never said Harden isn’t elite. You can even call Chris Paul elite (I don’t but some do). You have a team with 2 elite players against a team with 4 elite players. Like I said it will show in the playoffs.

Rockets could take 3 games, but ultimately Warriors vs. Cavs or Raptors.

chris paul is elite. wow. joke. he couldn't even win the series decider against utah jazz last year. he was playing with griffin and jordan. about the rockets being great.it is like saying manchester city is great than real madrid. actual greatness is seen when it comes to winning trophies. warriors have 4 players and harden can put a tough fight to compete with them. but a tied game you put harden and curry on the line and see who delivers. 88.1% times curry would.

 

Yes harden is great and teams are having a hard time stopping him but he was the same last season and the season before. he chokes come playoffs and he would do the same again. mark my words

Sometimes things just work well with players. We all know Blake Griffin is overrated, not that he's bad, but overrated. Cp3 and Black Mamba was such a threat to the league the commissioner had to veto it. Now he's with James Harden the unstoppable force. The one man machine who single handedly beat Orlando Magic. The man who has the record for highest points scored in DFS Draftkings earlier in this year, and then matched his record again last month. I think Harden is the biggest threat in the league with his ability to take it to the rim with such force, or kick it out to one of the great shooters around him with ease. Calling Draymond and Klay elite and not Cp3 is also questionable. I do get it though, they've got the rings to show it. GS is so good i believe that they hold back in many of these games so that they aren't making a mockery of the league with 140+ point games. It is tough to go out and say Houston is better than GS, but i would say without a doubt Harden is better than any one player on GS so i would not rule it out entirely. Maybe its just a lingering hope or my distaste for the GSW speaking.

Rockets can win 2 games against the Warriors in a 7 game series

IMO the Thunder have a better chance in a 7 game series

High pick n roll is unstoppable. Harden or Paul doesn’t matter.
