The Warriors lost tonight and are down 3:1 going back to Toronto. It doesn’t look good at this point for them.

It’s funny that Toronto’s biggest fan is named after a duck. Acts like another animal though which I won’t mention since this is a family site.

At this point it's too late...even if they were to play KD and Clay, it's too late...the Warriors are done...

The fix is in

Right now the NBA is instructing Toronto to throw the next two games. This series can’t end in five games only. The television losses are too great.

There was a time when GS could dig out of this, but I don't think they can this time...they were down to the Rockets last year 3-2, and they had to win on the road...

Last year's finals only lasted 4 games...

I understand the world always has a conspiracy theory, but just imagine how impossible it would be to keep something like a fix on an NBA game secret? The only way it could happen would be to have one or two superstars in on it. Someone like Curry or Leonard could probably throw a game by just easing off on defense a few times, or just by missing a couple of shots at crucial moments. But, I still find that highly unlikely. Everyone will point to the refs throwing games, but again it would never stay a secret for too long.

I think many if not most would be be surprised if Golden State comes back at this point for more than a game...it's not there.

With GS moving to the Chase Center in SF next year...a venue that has poorer access and costs more to attend, it may end up signaling the end of an era for fans but not the franchise. The only thing I'm surprised by is that they're apparently not going to change the name back to the San Francisco Warriors. Considering the Chase complex cost as much to build as AT&T Stadium in Dallas, it'll be interesting to see just how "remote" Oracle felt by the end of next season if it impacts the regular fans. I don't know...Idiot techie billionaires shoving millionaires might be a good representation of the future there...

I still remember the SF Warriors playing in the Cow Palace. Wilt Chamberlain at center.

I’m surprised the Cow Palace is still there. San Francisco hasn’t been a cow town for a long time but you still have to watch your step walking through there.

I for one will be pulling for the Raptors. Grew up in Buffalo, south of Toronto.

Went to several Raptors games with my church group as a young man, always was fun.

Yeah, that's waaay back and I'm really surprised the Cow Palace is still there too...it probably says something they're relocating to a tight location in the Mission Bay neighborhood than something equivalent to the Cow Palace's location with a lot of parking and access. I used to go to Nate Thurmond's BBQ place south of Market and it was always entertaining to see a 6'11" guy climb a spiral metal staircase to get buns from the storeroom which was above the 18 foot ceiling.

No doubt about watching your step as there's a new cow pie in town...I think there's even a tourist advisory to look down when you're walking to avoid the sharps and indeterminate biological products. SF gets my vote for the most dangerous city in America to go barefoot or have thin soles.

But this one has a foreign team in it smile

I remember about 25 years ago an entire MLB season being scrapped, suspiciously when it began to look like Toronto and Montreal were about to run away with the AL and NL.
