    My thinking exactly. Feels like the league is a joke because there's literally only one title contender now. As much as I love D Wade he isn't getting any younger so I don't think even him alongside LeBron and Kyrie can stop the Warriors now

    5 Bold Predictions for Warriors 2016-17 NBA Season:
    • The Warriors do not beat their 73-9 record.
    - Gaining KD but losing Barnes, Bogut and Ezeli can do more bad than good. Combination of role players rather than one superstar is more beneficial to a team, especially when KD is an offensive player, and the Warriors lose some quality defensive players.
    • Curry nor KD win the MVP award.
    - Both their stats will decrease as they play with eachother, it will be hard for one of them in particular to shine when they are both big time offensive scorers along with Klay, and don't do a whole lot else on the court. They will clash in the MVP award voting.
    • Warriors will not win the NBA championship in 2017.
    - LeBron didn't win his first year joining the superteam of Wade/Bosh or Irving/Love. I don't think KD will either. Plus, losing Bogut in the finals gave the Cavs a big advantage offensively when attacking the rim. Now GSW will not have Bogut at all, along with other big role players.
    • Warriors will still make the NBA Finals, and be first seed in the West.
    - Who's going to contend for the top spot in the West now? OKC most likely aren't. But let's not forget the Spurs, they will be hungry.
    • The Warriors bandwagon will be bigger than ever, along with their hatewagon being bigger than ever. Similar to the Miami Heat back in 2010-11.

    KD and Curry can kiss any chance of a MVP regular season. They just lost that right.

    True, clears the path for Kawhi/LeBron/WB I think. Hard to say who'll win it though, LeBron has already said he doesn't really care about individual accolades anymore and Kawhi is a Pops robot so maybe my money's on WB

    Yup it'll be between those 3 and possibly the brow if he can get back to form. No respect to Durant what so ever.

    Bruv their logic... it's just.. mind-boggling :lol: The way they try to excuse it is hilarious. Huge props to my man SAS - gave the truth and just simply stated what everyone was thinking. Stop wasting your time arguing with these numbnuts

    That move was a sign of mental weakness. Warriors fans please don't quote/reply me because I have 0 interest in debating this and I can't be convinced otherwise. Neither can you.
