    Side note….Lebron’s Space Jam looks every bit as pathetic as why he made it…dude is no Michael Jordan, as much as he wants to be.

    Michael Jordan is a douchebag so who cares. Space Jam was lame 25 years ago too. Pretty sure itís not aimed at a bunch of old farts like us however.

    More then 2018-19 season??? Your old man memory is not that bad yet. That was only a few seasons ago. Very similar, maybe worse as it was the FINALS.

    Kevin Durant goes down with injury in Finals, Warriors had that one. That was a gift Championship.


    But..... I am sure we could go over 10 other seasons with injuries to star players just as bad. Those are the breaks.... Nothing you can do sometimes.

    The Raptors beat the Warriors both times during that regular season and certainly could have beaten them in the finals, even if they were 100% healthy.

    That season is absolutely nothing like the rash of injuries and multiple teams affected this year. Not even close on any planet.

    I could say the same thing as you about the 2-time defending champion 1989 Lakers who lost Byron Scott and Magic in the Finals. You donít see me talking about that because itís not the same thing.

    That 1989 Lakers went 11-0 in the Western Conference playoffs before losing Scott the day before the finals started and then Magic in the 2nd quarter of game 2. That Lakers team was on a postseason roll like the 2001 Lakers, before those injuries derailed them. Ugh. Still hurts.

    Exactly. The point is it only derailed one team, not multiple. This seasonís rash of injuries derailed so many teams itís not even funny. Not to mention just general health for other teams that had to play in the bubble.

    Golden State fans are funny. I guess itís them who have the short memories. Not surprising since most of them didnít start following basketball until the 2014 season.

    And Iím joking AP.

    I was mostly just talking shit about Coulda's OLD MAN Memory ...haha....

    I see what you are saying though. Yeah, the shorten season has wrecked havoc for sure. Crazy injuries. Multiple teams.

    The interesting part is that one of the Four remaining teams is either going to end a long Championship drought or win #1.

    Rash of injuries kind of happening in baseball too. Or so it seems.

    I kind of think part (not all) is due to COVID restrictions preventing monitored off season training. With the NBA the shortened offseason didn't help though. Not going to say its the reason for all the injuries but some of it

    No pity on KD missing the finals from Warrior fan. Nobody cared 2015 without Love and only having Kyrie for one game. Injuries happen
