I do believe that Draymond is more important just due to his defense and hustle but that is another topic. Kudos for 5 Finals. I really do not see either the Bucks or Toronto taking a game. Both inexperienced with the Finals and don't think they can keep up with the pressure. I hope so but I see another 4-1 or 4-0 Title for GSW
    I see what you mean but both teams can rebound and play defense. Way better than Portland.
    Without KD and Cousins they should have an edge on the glass. Lotta length and size with their front courts.
    Both of them are better than Portland. Sweeping them at home is gonna be near impossible.

    The key is gonna be defense. They have to run around with Clay and Curry. Contest every three. Just like the Cavs did.
    The problem is after they get those stops will they score...with consistency. Gonna be tough.

    I just look at the fact that in almost 5 seasons, one team has beaten them in the playoffs. With and without Durant. Just like when people start talking about how Harden and the Rockets and I am like "show it first" Same with this. Until somebody can beat them, I am going to assume they will simply roll.

    I hope I am wrong because I do like Toronto and the Bucks.

    BTW glad we now have a series.

    For sure.

    Looks like this one could go 7 now. Wouldn't surprise me if the home team wins every game with Mil coming out on top in 7. Especially since both teams have so many 2nd tier All-Stars and role guys. Those type of players just play better at home and then fade on the road.

    I'm talking about the regular season. Which, is what I think most of this article is about.

    Do I think the Warriors playing at 10:30 is a problem now? No, I don't. They've been doing it for five years. Some of those years I heard the ratings were good. The past few years they've given the Warriors a lot of 9:00 games anyway. Or they're playing an east team early.
    Wasn't a problem when the Lakers ruled either. Or the many years the west had all the good teams.

    Did Lebron moving west hurt regular season ratings. Yeah, that hurt a little. But as I said, TNT and ESPN didn't show Lebron every night. They wanted good matchups. Not when he was playing chumps. Half the games at 8:00 weren't Lebron. I'm sure those ratings weren't great.

    He's just dancing around the real issues. Making it sound like this will fix the ratings. The problems are what I mentioned.
    All year everyone was going nuts because everyone decided not to play defense any more. I've never seen anything like it. It was pitiful. Then, everyone needed games off. The season has been dragged out, no more back to backs and they're still TIRED!
    People are fed with this " the season isn't important" crap.
    Throw in a team that's pretty much invincible and there's not much reason to watch the regular season.

    Now, if we're talking playoff ratings....Lebron not in the playoffs...that hurts a lot!

    Honestly, I see this move being more about money than ratings. The networks can charge more for a 11:00 commercial than they can for a 1:00am one. Thus, that new TV deal gets a boost.

    In Lebron's case, earlier times don't mean much unless they get him some help.
    If not, I see next season being more about, Zion. Which, could be what's driving this. Being able to start his games at 8:30est They need another Lebron in a bad way. No one in the league now can take his place.

    How? Giannis didn't react, tweet or say anything about Drake (whoever he is). It seems more like a total dickhead fan that's a supposed celebrity was allowed to be a douche.
    Just go for it!

    Giannis should go to a Drake concert and heckle him from the front row for his lousy music. How long would Drake's security allow that before they tossed Giannis?

    Whoever he is? He's only one of the biggest stars in the world, certainly a much bigger star than any bucks player.

    If your star player is so sensitive that his agent has to cry to the press about being treated poorly on the road....

    The fact his agent deleted the tweet tells you all you need to know. He knows he made his client look like a crying baby.

    Why can't Aubrey just watch the game like a normal human being instead of acting like a taller version of Spike Lee?

    He missed a chunk of the season. They took that into account clearly.
