This is an absolutely absurd take. The CLEVELAND CAVALIERS weren’t anywhere CLOSE to 100% when they beat the stuffing out of the Nets TWO GAMES IN A ROW!!! That was WITH their big three. Yeah it was their first couple games together but come on, it was the CAVS. These guys aren’t anywhere close to as good as people are trying to make them. I’d still take the Lakers in five in a Finals matchup, and I hate the Lakers.

if the nets play in the playoffs how they do now... then their definitely winning,i honestly think harden choking in the playoffs is a little too overexegerated but kyrie still performs the same and kd seems like he does even better(except against gsw in 2016)

first of all, teams like this actually usually implode, especially when you have Harden on the squad. No Harden super and balanced teams have won. Not with a prime Dwight, CP3 and Westbrook. When Harden was with OKC, those guys including KD and Westbrook flamed out. Lebron, Dwade and Bosh list to basically one guy in Dirk their first year. The Celtics big three of KG, Allen and Pierce only won that first year and never won again. What I am saying is that given Harden's poor playoff performances, Kyrie's poor defense and KDs potential health issues during the stretch, this team is 1000% beatable in a playoff series where the stakes are high. Joe Harris is still unproven under fire. You think teams will bow down? Kyrie has had a few injuries as well. Plus his weird attitude and shadow that he casts over his team's success gets in the way of success. We are giving these guys way to much credit than they deserve.

The sixers is the worst possible matchup for the nets. They got players like simmons, Danny, and thybull to guard kyrie, kd and harden while they got the most dominant big man in the league in embiid. It’ll get ugly real quick, the only that’ll make the sixers lose is if the nets are able to manipulate simmons lack of shooting against them in the half court set on offense.
Don't sleep Brooklyn might not get past Philly the sixers are one more scorer away from being a championship type team. They have the defense to slow Brooklyn down

Listen, I love this show "First Take" and agree with most things you guys say! But I gotta say, you never speak of the Toronto Raptors. I'm from Toronto and I'm a big fan. I have seen a big leap in improvement from the Raps since the start of the season. Start speaking more about us man! We just beat Giannis and The Bucks 2 games in a row, and beat the 76ers a couple of nights ago! AND NOT TO MENTION STEPHEN A, We beat the Brooklyn Nets this year in our only meeting with them. So just show us some love and discuss how the Raptors are a threat to any team in the league. AND, that is also without our star guard Kyle Lowry.

Harden and Kyrie are creating for others so elite. Durant eFG% is enormous because they are his teammates and they are creating lots for everyone. Lakers are the Leagues best Defence and Utah is playing great and Clippers have a shot. Only think Philly will compete with Brooklyn in the East. Lakers have the best Defense and LEBRON will be at his top Usage rate in the Finals tho so that will be awesome too watch
Chris Mitchell
Chris Mitchell Acum lună
I hope in the playoffs Harden gets recognised if they win, or Kyrie. Steph Curry got robbed of playoffs MVP by Durant who got boosted heaps by having his teammates take pressure and create for him and maybe Harden is the best Creator in the League and Kyrie is creating better than ever so if Durant gets 15 open shots per game and wins playoffs MVP I’ll be really annoyed watching how Harden and Kyrie are creating for him and Hardens top Defence. Harden for Defensive first team this year?
