Woo a special shout out just for me Thanks @MrDystopia I hope I can do what other greats have done and build a legacy.
Team Rose I'll put down a team once I figure out where he's going, I guess it's looking like Knicks/Bulls for now.

Going to watch First Take now. But man this series was great, last night was one of the best experiences ever. Great ending to the season, the off season is going to be super interesting

So early odds have been released for next seasons winner. Unsurprisingly Warriors are the favourites (Really it makes most sense), with Cleveland second. Interesting to note this time last year just after the Dubs had won, Cleveland opened as the first favourites.

It's okay. Go to the New England Patriots forum and ask them how to get over it. You never will. This will haunt you for the rest of your life man.

NTJ's thoughts; "Kyrie outplayed Curry at his supreme best, yet Chris Paul could not outplay Curry before he was a superstar. Kyrie's 2016 Playoff run is more impressive than any of Chris Paul's, and he just needs some longevity to surpass him all-time."

No he sucked in a vacuum situation but he's still a prime superstar. Like LeBrons choke against Dallas, it was horrific but he was at his supreme best at that point in his career regardless.

Curry may perform better in an inidivudal finals series in the future, but as a whole he'll never be at the same level he has been this season I think. If he is bravo.

EDIT: I should correct that to I don't think he'll ever have a better season than this one. I'm not suggesting he's going to decline

So the quote you posted doesn't hold true, Kyrie didn't outplay Steph at all at his best.

I think Steph can return to his regular season form of the past two seasons. Just something needs working on regarding the Finals. Last years playoffs he was fine, Finals not so much, this years playoffs was a mix of great, average, poor and injuries.

Well objectively all you can do is analyse the situation based on a vacuum performance as the nba finals are legacy building performances in themselves. We know he could have done better, and obviously should have. But it is what it is. Maybe when he eventually slows down in the regular season he'll deteriorate further post season. It's difficult to say. All we can say is he's had a career high season that is highly unlikely to be topped and he was largely shut down by Kyrie.

Some players aren't made for the big stage and I hope that's not Steph but we'll have to wait until next year. I've got GS v Cavs yet again. :p: Man I can't wait!!!

Also boo Klay for not being courteous after the game. I like Draymond more now.

Steph and Green (ironic) are the only ones who stuck around to congratulate Cavs apparently.
