Can the Warriors sweep the Cavs for a perfect 16-0 title run?

From a basketball Authentic Mike Purcell Youth Jersey standpoint, it's not crazy, though the emergence of Jusuf Nurkic means there's no longer as much need for an interior counterweight to Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum. But from a personality standpoint, I don't think either side would be particularly interested in a reunion given the whispers about Aldridge's unhappiness http://www.officialauthenticnfl49erssho … ersey.html
in Lillard's shadow that surfaced after his departure. Aldridge also doesn't fit Portland's timetable, which is built around Lillard and McCollum. More than that, from a trade value standpoint, it's tough for the Blazers to make moves because most of their players are either too valuable (Lillard and McCollum, and probably Nurkic too) or have too many onerous contracts (Allen Crabbe, Meyers Leonard, Evan Turner) to make sense as part of a trade. Al-Farouq Aminu and Maurice Harkless are about the extent of Authentic Pat Sims Youth Jersey Portland's middle class, and unless the Spurs want to go much smaller, they don't really make sense in San Antonio. (They make even less sense for an LA Clippers team without Chris Paul.) So I don't see a fit here, even if both sides were willing to move past the way they broke up. I have received several questions about my draft projections. They should be out sometime during the NBA Finals, after more … ims+jersey European leagues have finished their regular seasons. Each year, I update the ratios of how much production college and international players lose when coming to the NBA, as well as the baseline of replacement-level performance that's used to regress players' statistics to the mean. So the success of past draft picks is priced in that way. As for measurement data, while it might have some predictive power on its own, once you have good college projections, I haven't found it to offer much additional information. No NBA team has ever finished the playoffs unbeaten. Might the Golden State Warriors make history this year? At 12-0, the Warriors are already off to the best start ever to a postseason. They joined the 1989 and 2001 Los Angeles Lakers as the third team to sweep its way to the NBA Finals since the playoffs expanded to 16 teams in 1984. However, both of those Lakers teams played just 11 games against Western Conference foes because the first round did not go from best-of-five to best-of-seven until 2003.
Both those Logan Thomas Authentic Jersey Lakers teams lost Game 1 of the NBA Finals. After losing starting guards Magic Johnson and Byron Scott to hamstring injuries, the 1989 Lakers were swept by the Detroit Pistons. The 2001 Lakers, meanwhile, won the next four games after losing Game 1 to the Philadelphia 76ers to finish 15-1 -- the best record in playoff history ... so far. Golden State has a chance to surpass the 2001 Lakers. To get there, the Warriors will have to beat their toughest competition yet, the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers. When Byron Scott first met his Cavaliers team in the fall of 2011, he gave each player a 5-by-8 note card with written instructions outlining his role. The card for Tristan Thompson, a prized rookie, was simple: set screens, rebound, talk on defense, have "a high motor." It did not mention scoring. Scott asked each player to read his card, absorb it, and come back with suggestions. "Tristan … mas-Jersey was the only guy who just said, 'That's all good, Coach,'" Scott remembered. This was a big reason the Cavs nabbed Thompson with the No. 4 pick in 2011 in what critics labeled a reach. Thompson was the rare prodigy who knew what he was -- and what he wasn't. "I don't think we ran one play for him," said Rodney Terry, an assistant at Texas during Thompson's one year there, and now the head coach at Fresno State. In studying prospects, the Cavs understood a grinder like Thompson would look bad in agent-controlled one-on-one sessions. They invited Thompson back for a second pre-draft workout in which he would play three-on-three against a team featuring Enes Kanter and Derrick Williams, only they neglected to tell Kanter about the three-on-three part, sources said. Kanter arrived expecting to go one-on-one against a patsy. Instead, Thompson destroyed both players in a game-like setting. "He just would not let them score," said Pete Babcock, then a Cavs scout. Thompson knew Williams and Kanter were projected ahead of him, and wanted to show -- in his own way -- that he was better.
