Who is this guy, Patrick McCaw? He saved GS's bacon a bit earlier.

Conspiracy theorists said the league wanted Game 6.

Warriors said, not so fast!

This has got to be so hard for James to swallow. What will the excuse be, "they have 4 superstars and we only have 3??"

2 conspiracy theories went out the window this season.

1. Some Celtic fans believed the NBA will NEVER give the Celts the #1 pick if the Celts have a shot at the #1 pick.

2. Cavs vs. Warriors series will go 6 games because that's what the league wants.

Watching the Warriors, we have to have scoring power to beat them. Fultz is the best first step. Hopefully this result gets Hayward or Griffin to jump here. The path through Cleveland is easier than that through the Warriors.

There's really no beating the Warriors.

That's just too much firepower.

We just have to wait it out.

I think Celts will be in the hunt for a championship in 2019 or 2020.

McCaw was a great pick at I believe #38 in last years draft.

nice swingman with a defensive attitude. I thought he would go late first last year myself.

here is his draftnet profile from last year:

22 - Patrick McCawUNLV

Birthday: 10/25/95
NBA Position: Shooting Guard
Class: Sophomore
Ht: 6-6
Wt: 180
Hometown: St. Louis, MO
High School: Montrose Christian

Overall
91
2016 Mock: 38 Big Board: 23 Pos Rank - SG: 7
NBA Comparison: Corey Brewer/Michael Carter Williams
Strengths: Has great size for a NBA shooting guard. Measured at 6'5.25 barefoot with a 6'10" wingspan ... An athletic guard that has the speed and quickness to be an excellent two-way player ... With his combination of size, length, quick hands and lateral quickness, Pat is a ball hawk on defense, especially on the perimeter ... He does a good job of getting into a low defensive stance which allows him to be aggressive on the ball, active in passing lanes and create turnovers which leads to easy transition points ... He was one of the nation's best on ball defenders ... He averaged 2.5 steals per 40 minutes ... Solid assist to turnover ratio at 3.9 to 2.1 ... Has the versatility to guard the 1, 2 and 3 positions ... With good speed, quickness, nice handles and a good feel for the game, he excels in transition ... Even though he's not viewed as a bucket getter, Pat showed flashes in his two years at UNLV that he can score coming off screens, using runners, floaters and shooting 3s off the dribble ... Shows a lightning quick first step and tremendous speed to get to the rim off the dribble ... As a freshman he led the team with 57 made 3s ... Has excellent shooting mechanics which will translate to the NBA level ... He a very poised player and has a passion for competing and is known for hitting big shots ... Has the potential to be a versatile offensive player ... McCaw’s court vision, feel for the game and a natural passing ability allow him to find cutters, throw lobs and be very effective in the pick and roll situation ... As a FR when fellow FR teammate Rashad Vaughn went down with a knee injury, McCaw took over the scoring burden and shot 40% from the 3-point line ... He has the potential to be a knock down shooter at the next level ... Shines in the clutch and wants the ball in end of game situations ... In his two years at UNLV, Pat hit a number of big shots when the game was on the line, which shows his competitiveness and will to win ... With his size, has the versatility to play multiple positions, PG, SG and SF ... Should be an excellent player in a complimentary role ...

Weaknesses: At 180 lbs, McCaw is one of the lighter players in the draft ... He gets knocked off balance too easily when coming off of screens and due to his lack of muscle, struggles with the physicality of the game ... Needs to focus on putting on weight and getting stronger which will help him with his mid-range game and finishing around the basket with contact ... Not a good post defender ... While his versatility to play multiple positions can be looked at as a positive, his lack of a natural position could be viewed as a negative ... At times can be careless with the basketball due to high dribble ... Can be undisciplined at times gambling for steals ... Has room to grow in terms of consistency when scoring around the basket. For somebody that's 6’7, he should work on his post game, which will allow him to post up small guards at the next level ... Not a kid with a strong personality and tends to prefer to lead by example than be talkative. Should look to become more assertive and vocal ...

Overall: As a freshman McCaw played in 32 games and started the last 15 he appeared in. He averaged 9.6 pts, 3.3 rebs, 2.7 ast, 1.5 stls a game and shot 40.2% from the field, 36.8 from 3s and 71.4% from the free throw line as a freshman ... This season as a sophomore, he led the team in minutes played at 33.7 per game, averaged 14.7pts, 2.5 steals, 5.1 Rebs and shot 36.6% from 3, 46.5 % from FG and 40.0% on 2 point jumpshots (according to Hoop-Math.com) ... Overall McCaw is seen as a potential first rounder by scouts ...

Notes: From St. Louis, Missouri ... Attended Montrose Christian High School in Rockville, MD ... Declared early and decided to sign an agent and keep his name in the 2016 NBA draft ...

McCaw hit a couple threes in a row. I was surprised to see him out there at such a critical time.

It's not gratifying knowing you only won because your opponent is hurting.

fierce,

I have lots of friends who are Laker fans. I can assure you they feel no sense of remorse or humility because they won a championship because Perk blew out his knee in Game 6 of the 2010 Finals. I don't have any friends who are Orlando Magic fans, but if I did I doubt they'd be willing to discount their series victory over us in 2009 when KG was out with his knee.

Injuries are part of the game, that's why you have a well-developed bench, and you take your wins anyway and anytime you can. I certainly do not wish injury on anybody (other than the occasional beat down of DWade). Would I prefer to beat everybody at their best and healthiest? Sure, but we've been on the other side of that equation and so I'm fine with receiving payback too.

Golden State had a tremendous run through the playoffs

Now they have a lot of work to do to build the team for next year and beyond.  Their first order of business is to resign Curry and Durant who can opt out of his $27 million contract scheduled for next season.

Once they get past that they will have to consider what to do with all of the other free agents.  The two key rotation players are Iguodala and Livingston.  They probably will not be able to keep both of them.  I would think that Iguodala would be the key guy but he is coming off of a $11.1 million contract so is he ready to take a pay cut?

Zaza Pachulia played a key role in bringing a physical albeit somewhat dirty presence to the game.  He was making $2.9 million.  I think there are some teams out there that could offer him more to leave GS.  JaVale McGee, Davd West and several other players are also free agents.

GS will be able to keep their Core 4 in place but they will need a few hometown discounts to retain several other players.  The rotation is a key element to their success and when the rotation undergoes significant changes it can impact team chemistry.  I am sure there will be a lot of veteran free agents lining up to jump on the Warriors bandwagon in hopes of securing a ring!

Cleveland on the other hand is living in the luxury tax neighborhood.  They do not have enough talent to compete with GS and they do not have the cap space to sign any above average free agents.  Lebron bitched and moaned about the owner needing to spend money and now they have lost 2/3 series to the Warriors.  Gilbert is not going to continue to spend big time cash indefinitely.  I think they will not be as good next year.  Their Core is aging fast and their rotation is also aging.

It was rockin' in the bay area last night!

Cav fans claimed that "Kelly Olynyk stole their first championship with his vicious and evil dislocation of Love's shoulder", completely forgetting that Irving was out too.  Now, it is clear that dboss is correct, they do not have the talent to hang with GSW and their core is aging.

Durant has said he'd be willing to take a hometown discount to keep Iggy and other core players in GSW.  By that I take it to mean he'd go from $27M to $24M.  Is that enough?  Curry's contract is up and he's only making $12M.  Even with a hometown discount that has to be another $12M or so.  The Ring Wraiths (Zaza, Barnes and West) will fade for greener (as in dollar) pastures now that they have theirs.  Javale McGee may or may not.  He has ADD and probably isn't a starter because of that.  He's only making $1.4M and may be due a raise next year too, albeit not an earthshaker.  Shaun Livingston makes $5.8M and is a free agent too.  The bottom line, however, is that as long as they can lock up Curry, Thompson (already signed through 2019) and Durant they will be able to back fill on their bench like we did in 2007-2008 and they did this year with West and McGee.

It's really scary when you consider that Curry is 29, Durant will be 29 in September and Thompson is only 27.  They are all still in their prime and have several years of playing at this level ahead of them. They have Dynasty written all over them.

It doesn't feel right.

If our team is not the Boston Celtics then it really won't matter because injuries is part of the game.
But our team is the Boston Celtics, the team with the most NBA championships.
Saying that the Celtics will win a championship because the Warriors will suffer injuries is not gratifying.
I'd rather the Celts win like in 2008 when they clearly beat the crap out of the Lakers.
That was one hell of a championship season.

It's a different story when the Warriors suffer injuries during the season and they lose to the Celts in the finals.
But this early in the year and we're already talking about the Celtics beating the Warriors because the Warriors will suffer injuries?
