    This is a good thing...let him go anywhere, but Boston.

    I also pray they do not trade for Davis.

    I do love me some Klay Thompson. Man is just nuts when he gets it going.

    The Warriors deserve better than this. What rotten luck they've had the last few weeks.

    Yeah. I know how it feels to be on the wrong end of injuries in the postseason. And I generally hate when teams aren't healthy in championship games and series. Hate for the question to linger if things would have been different without the injuries.

    Well that whole series is gonna go down as one of the bigger what-ifs in NBA history. A threepeat in the making destroyed by two huge injuries. I feel for the Warriors cause historians always use chips as the main debate topic and this team was good enough to win five straight if not for a god mode LeBron and that slew of injuries here.

    I'm no Raptors fan but nice to see an under-performing team finally get the title, just wish they'd done it in a different way because this upset isn't particularly satisfying for me knowing they beat a seriously gimped up Warriors team.

    Man. There's so much to take in at the end of each season. You're right, Silk, it sucks that there will be a certain stigma that comes along with this win. But, that's not too important to me now.

    We've just seen the Raptors win their first NBA title. After so many years of Playoff heartbreak and doubt. Kawhi Leonard wins his second NBA Championship after all the drama of last year and even this year. The most lowkey superstar in the league has just reached a totally new level and we may have to seriously think about Kawhi being the new best player alive. Nick Nurse wins a chip in his rookie season as an NBA coach. Marc Gasol and Serge Ibaka finally get a ring. FVV and Pascal Siakam's names suddenly hold a lot more weight after they come up huge. The Warriors dynasty may be a thing of a past as of this moment. Which is quite the twist of fate because a lot of people have said there's no point in even trying to compete with them since they got KD. And now this. The Raptors weren't even the favorite to win the East this year.

    There's so many awesome aspects to this.

    Green inadvertently hitting Klay from the back both times to help cause his bad landings, oof. Never seen a team get such hard luck in the finals alone, 2 injuries to Klay in a single series, 10 minutes of KD, 2 injuries to Looney in a single series, fracturing his collarbone and injuring his chest, and he still played through it. Cousins returning from an injury not at 100%, Iggy hobbled, Steph having a flu during a game. Crazy.

    Congrats to the Raps but I'm still salty idc.

    Injuries are a part of the game, like Kawhi in '14 and Chris Paul last year. It doesn't take anything away from the Raptors' championship.

    People always want to criticize the Warrior's 2015 championship, so all is fair play here.

    For the record, it’s insane down here. Took a cab home and we decided to jump out and ditch when we got stuck in traffic. Ended up walking almost an hour to get home and made a lot of new friends on the way. Lightning in a bottle right now here, love it!

    For sure Injuries apart of every sport of course, but look at the situation and the last thing you want to see the best be taken out of the Game and put any doubt in play. More than once I saw moments like yep if Durant would of been in there the Game changes. You saw that in Game 5 him having 11 Points who was gonna stop him Kawhi, Ibaka, Siakam on the Defensive side of the Ball nope. He would of went where he wanted on the Court and it could of really opened things up for Klay and Seth as it did in Game 5 in a short time. The Raptors played better when it mattered and that's why they are the Champions this year. Klay injury sucks he's also looking for a new Team I imagine like Durant, but I can easily see him staying on with The Warriors.
