    Can they go last years Cllippers and lose KD and Green or Curry?

    Disagree, we had/have no answer for KD.

    That's right - we're going to beat them regardless!

    Sweet, this is starting to play out exactly like our series against the Clippers did last year.

    I never wish for injuries, but it would be kinda awesome to see our injury curse start transferring over to every team we ever play in the 1st round.

    So remind me again about that big losing streak that GS endured when KD was out for a couple of months.






    Oh? . . .

    You have to admit that it at least makes them somewhat more beatable. They gave up a lot of depth to get Durant. If he's not there, it hurts them considerably. He's their biggest mismatch by far.

    I guess. I still can't help feel like it's swapping out a McLaren for an Aston Martin. Still more than enough HP to beat a Ford Escort off the line.

    On the one hand, I don't think we can expect Dame/CJ to put up the points that they did in game one.

    On the other hand, I don't think our bench only scores 9 points in the next game. The rest of our team played horribly in game 1. Without Durant I think they're at least beatable.

    We'll see. As long as Draymond is out there, I don't think we have anybody who can deal with all of the havoc he creates.

    Announcing that Nurk won't play is bait to make GS think it's okay for KD to rest.

    The thing is, they don't even really need KD to be the best team in the league. His presence there is just ridiculous and the fact he wanted to win a ring this way just shows what a fucking bitch ass Kevin Durant is. Glad we drafted Oden, KD is SAWFT. SAWWWWFFTTTT

    Except for Nurk perhaps. I gotta admit, Green played like Jerome Kersey.

    Let's not speak of the honorable dead when talking about the dishonorable living.
