    We need Nurk back, he was our emotional player. He’s this teams version of Wes Matthew.

    Warriors have probably had the three best players in this series so far.

    No more Turner, Aminu, and I’m 50/50 on Harkless. Nah, Harkless can go too.

    Leonard = I may keep the guy

    You put Steve Kerr as the coach on this team and we're up 3-0...

    I'd rather not have Draymond. I can't stand the guy's antics, his cockiness and just his overall vibe. He plays a good brand of basketball but he says he's the best defender ever. I don't want to have to listen to him, even if he could help us win a few more games. Besides, we're close to being able to beat the Warriors and we don't even have Nurk back.

    Replace Lillard with Jrue Holiday or Mike Conley and were up 2-1.

    Nurk would definitely change the dynamic. The thing is everyone on the court is being too nice right now.
    It's weird? Why isn't there any fire? I thought we would have seen at least one good scuffle by now?

    Replace Lillard with either of those guys and we're not in the WCF.

    If those guys were getting trapped like this, they'd be even worse.

    Dame having more turnovers than FG in this series -- even Draymond couldn't fix this.

    They might not be scoring, but Conley would pass to open teammates.

    Dame was great against OKC but we won in 5, I think those others could have outplayed Westbrook handily and got the series win in 6 games.

    Dame wasnt good against Denver and again think those others could have possibly lead us to the win, maybe even in less than 7.

    Dame was amazing in the regular season and provides, awesome leadership. He built a great culture that got this team to, the 3rd seed.

    His play in the postseason has got worse every round though.

    Is someone complaining about Dame not passing to open teammates? Have you seen who his open teammates are?! Christ Almighty.

    Disagree. We don't need another three point shooter, another CJ, we need a banger. Draymond. Rambis. Collins when he fills out.

    Aminu must go. He can't even dribble now his confidence is so shot (not that he could before!)

    C'mon man. Are you not watching the games? Every possession is dame fighting through two guys to get the ball to Leonard or CJ or Curry. Then they collapse a third defender on the pass which makes it easy pickings if the pass is at all off. then when Meyers gets the ball he looks for a open man who is usually Mo or Aminu at the 45 mid arc. Then they either clank an open look or try to make something and it gets tough from there. Sometimes Dame is lucky enough to get the ball back for an open look?
