I'm liking this playoff season. People have complained about too many blowouts but oh well. The Spurs v. Clippers series was good, could have gone either way.
The warriors are impressing me more and more. I thought after game 3 that Memphis had their number, that Barkley was right - GS too much a jump shooting team. But they're deeper than that. Some of Curry's passes are outstanding. And he often gets 5 or so rebounds. And Harrison Barnes: Jeez, class game and class act. Thank God Bogut is staying healthy, knock on wood. Early on I figured the guy was going to be a washout. Has (shooting) hands made of wood but is solid in most other aspects.
Kerr showing that he can watch film and make changes. I was ambivalent about him as a player but coach can stay on for a while IMO.
Clippers: apologies to all, I like Blake Griffin, he's a charmer on telly and a solid man in most all ways, but dang, the guy doesn't have much by way of offensive moves. In their epic collapse of game 6, he got the ball in the waning minutes once or twice and had nothing but a hard move towards the basket with a long floater. Both missed. Curry can make the floater work well but many cannot. Griffin is no Duncan. Not even close. At least he's shooting in the .700s in free throws. I was shooting free throws better in high school than most all of these guys. Jeez I wish I could do a seminar with some of them (Bogut, Jordan, Howard).
My prediction: GS and Cavs in final, 7 games. Can't call it.
