You do know Curry owns countless shooting and 3pt scoring awards right?
I'm aware of that. Been with him and the Warriors since 2009.

With Golden State always looking for ways to improve their roster, I don't see them losing the West anytime soon. Even though Houston pushed them to seven games, it was only because Andre Iguodala was hurt. Would've been relatively easy had he been healthy. That being said, I'd like to see the Warriors face someone new in the Finals next year. Philly or Boston would be a great match up for them. The Celtics especially would give Golden State a fight when fully healthy.
Yeah, CP3, the Rockets true leader, being hurt had nothing to do with the Warriors winning. At least be objective. Paul is much more important to the Rockets than Iguodala is to the Warriors. My bet is the warriors donít make the finals next year. Can only hope Lebron goes to the Lakers or Rockets.

Who in the blue hell do the Lakers have right now that would make them better than a Lebron-less Cavs, let alone a team that could beat the Warriors in the playoffs?

You put Lebron and either Chris Paul, Kawhi or Paul george on the Lakers and theyíre competing immediately with the Warriors. May not beat them next year, but Theyíre immediately better than this Cavs team just by adding Lebron. Everyone in warrior land likes to bring up Draymond getting suspended and oh poor curry had a sore ankle when they lost in 2016. So the six tís Draymond got before they played the Cavs was all game 4ís refs fault. Ok, sure whatever. The fact is that the warriors beat a Kyrie and love-less team in 2015 and then just dominated last year. Iíll give them that. But Rockets were really looking good to beat the warriors this year until he went down. Weíll see next year. The odds are not in the Warriors favor. Runs like this donít last and time is about up.

Oh right, that wet dream Lakers fans have every year that multiple free agents are going to join all those mediocre rookies in LA. Hopes and dreams just like the rest of your posting.

Lakers fans donít have to have wet dreams like warriors fans. Everyone knows which organization is better over the long run evidenced by the number of titles and domination in the 80s and 2000s, and 65 years ago in Minneapolis.

The thing is the warriors fans are cry babies and were still complaining about getting robbed in 2016 even after landing Durant. They donít even acknowledge beating Cleveland without Kyrie and love in 2015 or beating the rockets without chris Paul. Curry is a whiner with his antics on the court throwing his mouthpiece and incessant complaining. Picking fights with an over the hill Perkins on the bench because what he should move his feet because curry is in Clevelandís bench. Whatever.

At least Lakers fans acknowledge the kings got robbed in 2002 and called out what punks they were after losing to the Mavs in 2011. Give it time the warriors will go away. Next year? 2 years? Like I said enjoy it while it lasts and try not to be such a spoiled winner like all their fans are right now.

The Warriors are only getting started. I'd say they only fail to make the Finals should any of their keys players get injured.

I think LeBron would prefer to stay out East. The West is not called the "Wild West" for nothing. Got so many teams capable of winning championships besides the Warriors. It was Curry's knee that was the major problem for him that year, and Draymond Green's suspension combined with Steph not being 100% did indeed lead to their ultimate downfall. Had they won however, KD would not be there. He might still be with OKC or even in Boston. Don't forget that Iguodala was also hurt, and he's a key defensive player on Golden State. Odds not in Golden State's favor? I'm afraid you're wrong about that. Time is not even close to up for the Warriors. Should they keep everyone together, recruit free agents, and stay relatively healthy, they'll be dominant for at least another four to five years. That being said, I'm not saying they'll win titles every year. They'll just be contenders for titles.

I've realized that Lebron won't ever win Ring #4, just isn't going to happen

Even if he goes to the Rockets it makes no difference, Harden is an iso streetball player that stagnates his own offense. Not to mention Houston was like 0-15 or something crazy in game 7 plus Chris Paul is made of fine china.

I don't see Lebron ever beating GSW with Kevin Durant. It's crazy to think OKC had Durant, Westbook, and Harden at one time and it shows that all-stars a lone can't win a ring unless they know how to share the ball.
