We will officially and finally had a team that 'didn't care about the regular season' win the whole ball of wax. Excuse me as I watch them dismantle Milwaukee.

They are a mini all star team.
Kevin Durant
James Harden
Kylie Irving
Deandre Jordan
Blake Griffin
LaMarcus Aldridge

The key is Durant. I don't think they win anything without him.

Kevin Durant is a lot better than I thought. I had this feeling when he went to Golden State that he just didn't want to work - he wanted to coast. In reality, he might be the best pure shooter of this generation. I call this generation starting with LBJ, Wade, Melo. Kobe was the tail end of the last generation. I don't like Kyrie because I feel he's a massive distraction. But it doesn't seem like his teammates are distracted meaning there is no issue with the guy, it's all us blowing it up. Where this team really made their best moves was signing up every big guy that was a former All Star, on the cheap. Their bench depth was an all-star team once.

The part that I won't ever forgive are the teams bending over and kissing the asses of the stars. If I were Houston, I would have let Harden rot at home. Don't pay the guy, see how fast he starts putting in an effort.

I don't feel like they are the worst of the Super Teams(Miami, Golden State, Lakers) in terms of how they were put together.

I admittedly haven't paid attention because it's the NBA and it sucks and maybe I'm wrong but were they not built more by management than by the players themselves being the architects like the above Super Teams?

LaMarcus Aldridge pretty much a non factor really.  Other than Harden, Irving and Durant most of the rest of the team is smart pickups at bargain prices that are playing together as a team.

And again though I don't watch it would be nice to see a team other than the big 3 noted above or even a Boston win an NBA Championship.

My 76'ers vs. Suns prediction for the Finals is still possible.

The 'Super Team' thing isn't going to go away. We're going to see more and more of it.

The only reason I wouldn't mind the Nets winning is Steve Nash is the coach, although he hardly has to.

They were super close but all on KD's shoulders really.

Kinda glad cos these sort of teams are not exciting at all.

overload 1 team with mega deals and have a bunch of G-League players around them? not for me.
