Not a big basketball fan but definitely appreciate the Warriors bringing a championship and now history to the Bay Area.

The enormity of 60 points, at 37 years old...on that aged and broken body is unreal.

I'm not sure what one has to do with the other but okay. Yes, Kobe is great and he had an amazing final night.

I don't think that really overshadows a new NBA record. Just two great achievements side by side.

Wasn't trying to discount everything just an observation. I was out and the kobe game had priority in the bar, no one even paid attention to gs. That was expected kobe wasn't.

73 wins for GS, 402 threes for Curry and 60 pts plus game winner and final 15 straight points for Kobe. Outstanding finish to NBA regular season. Glad I DVR'd both games.

Not diminishing what was accomplished, but was at a bar. It was basically the Kobe show and there was one TV that also had the Warriors game. Either way, glad there was great basketball tonight.

Congratulations Golden State for a amazing season. Now go out and finish the job. This is coming from a depressed Knicks fan. Good luck GS.

What I do know is that good calls and bad calls go both ways in every game in every sport. The bottom line is the Warriors won their division and they are in the playoffs. If they are executing moving screens as determined by refs on the floor they should be called on it. They are having an incredible season and if they win the championship again it should be fair and square.

Are you that naive to believe darling media teams and NBA superstars don't get preferential treatment by the refs? Or are you just blind and too far atop the gsw bandwagon?
It's ok to feel great when your team is winning , even when calls go their way. Admitting that fact means you're a real fan. Anyone watching that video thinks those are good plays, even if the refs missed called or simply ignored it simply have no business being a fan
I am a Spurs fan, but when calls go their way and are obviously bad, I wouldn't hesitate to bring it up. But hey we got away with it so that's OK.
Just don't go and blame fans of apposing teams of being butthurt and making up imaginary noncalls going the warriors way

Yeah man it's bad in the bay area
Back in 2010 every time Lakers played at Oracle there would be a sea of Kobe jerseys
It's hard to believe all those "fans" moved to LA and only "authentic" gsw fans left rocking #30s
Go back 10-15 years and check out the Alamo dome or AT&T center and see if there are anything but silver and black when my Spurs play the Lakers
It's still only silver and black now BTW

Sure Kobe 60pts sound badass, but when u attempt 50 shots, 2points each shot that's 100 points.. The entire Lakers team attempted 85shots(35 everyone combined except kobe) .the numbers don't sound impressing after all do they

I'm not quite sure what part of my post pissed you off. I agree that refs give preferential treatment. What I am saying is calls go both ways. I'm sure a video could be assembled that shows a bunch of plays where the refs' calls went against GS. I'm also saying that opinions about a given call tend to follow party lines. Go to YouTube on any controversial call in any sport and look at the wide variety of comments on the very same video. I mean, its hard to believe all those commenters are even looking at the same video. While a fan of a team will sometimes call out his/her own team, mostly the comments about a controversial play align the team. That is all I'm saying. Therefore, it's no surprise that fans of other teams think GS gets special treatment by the refs. That's just how it goes.

I meant it when I said I am not a technical expert. As a casual fan who goes to a game a couple of times a year, I am not an expert at what constitutes a moving screen. I'm still trying to figure out what constitutes traveling for crying out loud. I see guys carrying the ball like a bag of groceries down the aisle at the store and they don't get called. And I really did mean it that the refs should call plays right so the winning team wins fair and square.

As far as being on the GS bandwagon, whatever that is, I was born in San Francisco and lived here for most of my life. As such, I am a fan of the Warriors. If that's being on a bandwagon so be it.

I started this thread to simply congratulate the Warriors for an incredible season. They won their division. They set a new record for most games one in a season. They have some talented players who are playing very well. Heck, they even beat San Antonio at home for the first time in a long time. All the talk in the world about favoritism and bad calls being the reason is pretty much expected but it doesn't change the outcome at all.


Not that you asked but I will give it to you anyway. When I was 10 years old my Little League manager gathered the team at the beginning of the season and said that he didn't want to hear any whining about bad calls or he would bench the player that whined. He said, "Bad calls happen. You need play well enough so bad calls don't change the outcome of the game." Pretty smart man I'd say.

A great accomplishment considering Jordan's Bulls were considered one of the best teams ever.

I'm not a huge basketball fan and this is one of the reason why. There is no drama in who will win the title. Unless Curry and half the starters get hurt, nobody will beat them. As opposed to hockey where it's a 2 month war of attrition and there are several teams that can win.

So, I'll say congrats to Warriors on winning the title now!

Please just read what I wrote or ignore it, your choice.

All I wanted to do is congratulate the Warriors on a great season, nothing more.

Good luck to the Spurs in the playoffs.
