it baffles me, you have a 17 year old MVP whooping fully grown men who give team USA trouble during int competition and most of these guys are ex NBA.. and u still draft a fucking center with 0 fucking jump shooting in a league thats all about spacing.. I dont even fucking know who was #2. Also the hawks trading trae for doncic... and to think that even until very recently people were saying its a level trade fucking lmao
Some biases are strong luka just does not look the part....
Look at how some ex NBA players talk about him today... Still plenty of em saying kyrie is the better player of the two

Luka and Lively looked good, but others totally failed them, especially PJ and Kyrie.

This was a commanding win by Boston because they played defense.

Even some of the shots Mavs were making were ridiculous crazy shots. Mavs got problems because Celtics like their 3s.

As a boston celtic fan, if boston wins it will be the best year sports like for me. Inter winning the scudetto and boston finally getting that 18th championship after 16 years.

My opinion is that i dont see any team that could beat this boston celtic team 4 games when they are healthy and fully stacked just like we saw them yesterday vs dallas. They didnt even have to double team anyone, where that wasnt the case with Tatum where he constantly got double teamed hence his stats, but i gotta admit he really did a great job.

Boston is clearly (!) the better team of the two. Their defense is excellent on how they can spread the floor - Their offense comes from everyone, unlike Dallas that works alot in isolation. Got to give Boston credit, they're more then likely running away with these finals. Maybe Dallas can snatch one game from them if they shoot lights out.

Mazzula is a far better coach than Kidd.

But also Kyrie is not playing up to his high standard. If he does, it may become a crazy ending to this final

Really? Like what has Mazzula done to deserve this label? Yes he s been good but he inherited what probably already was the 2nd best team in the NBA....

Meanwhile the Mavs look way better under Kidd then they did under Carlisle...

Anyways Kyrie need to step the fuck up and the mavs actually have a fighting chance

Does Mourinho's treble team mean any less because he took over Mancini's winning team? You have to be a good coach to still hold the team to a high standard.

It's true that ever since the trade (Smart & Williams for Porzingis & Jrue) they have been easily the most dominant team in the league. But those trades were made because he wanted them. This is a championship ready team, I wouldn't say the Smart-Tatum-Brown was the one, but at least with Jrue, he just might become the finals MVP if he goes off like this

Mazzula the only coach to stop Mavs effectively. Kyrie haven't won against Boston ... 14 games? :D

I cheer for the Don, but he won't be enough to beat this Boston team.

How far did mancinis inter side make it in the cl before Mou showed up? How far did boston get before Mazzula showed up?
I knid of agree on the championship team but that migh just be hindsight cause atl east the media had boston as favorites against GSW...

Also not sure if this is more of a kyrie thing than a Joe thing, i m not even saying joe is not a great coach i m just not 100% convinced on him jet.

Joe probably wins it this year but make no mistake he was behind the Celtics not going to the finals last year.

nobody said that Joe Mazzula is the best coach in the league

but for sure J.Kidd isn't a better coach

Mavs played good defence, but what Celtics have is great defence, against the two most talented back court players today. Gotta give props to that.
