A neighbor from the north: Two great teams, and a great series. Boosts the image of basketball in one persons opinion (even if the Raptors had come second I would say this).

I have a feeling we'd be watching a game 7 on Sunday had Klay Thompson not injured himself.  He was in that zone and his shot was falling with regularity.  He had an excellent series in spite of missing a full game with the injured hamstring.  I'll bet Danny Green on the Raptors is breathing a sigh of relief!  His errant pass gave the Warriors a great opportunity to win that game.  Definitely a great, competitive series that will go down in history for many reasons.

The series has really elevated the sport in Canada. My daughter was in downtown Vancouver when all the people watching the game in restaurants and bars spilled out into the streets. Vancouver is 3000 miles from Toronto! Very cool.

No Klay, No win.

I was all set for a fathers day show down. Since Toronto took out my Bucks I was all in on GS. Curry had his look, it was a good one, but he wasn't in the zone like Klay was. It was his opportunity and Curry couldn't deliver-

Congrats to the Raptors, they had a great year.

It was an excellent final series IMO, especially the last 2 games. While the NBA is still too much of a one-on-one and no defense league for my taste, both teams in this series played some outstanding team basketball and defense. Definitely would have been a different series with a healthy KD. How much? Who knows, but it would have been different. Losing Klay was a killer.

Enjoyed all the playoffs this year. Now if we can only get the Sonics back...
