Loses by 30 and gets embarrassed and completely emasculated on national TV in the NBA Finals. And then Warriors owner Joe Lacob has the audacity to make him WALK back to the team hotel. What a fall from grace after guiding a team to the best record of all time and winning NBA coach of the year. Such a shame. It seems like the Warriors are imploding right before our very eyes. Never thought I’d see a team with so much dysfunction actually leading an NBA Finals series. Sad!

I know everyone has bad games and you could cut up some Cavs highlights from the past few clunkers that look even worse than this….but that doesn’t change the fact that this video is hands down the greatest thing that’s ever happened to me.
For those of you out there still clinging on to the “It’s hard to hate Steph” train, I present to you the events of the past 72 hours. After heroically returning from basically a hangnail of the knee he suffered in the first round (or an MCL sprain depending on who you talk to), Steph proclaimed himself to be “here” as well as “back” after a 17 point overtime period in Game 4 of the WCSF against the Blazers (see above GIF). However, he was apparently lying. The Warriors have gone down 3-1 to the Thunder in tremendous fashion, and although Steph is technically “there”, he is apparently not “back”.
A report comes out after last night’s 6-20 from the field, 2-10 from three and six turnover performance that Steph is playing at 70% strength, battling to come “back” from the knee injury he already said he was “back” from. I’m “confused”.
I mean come on. This doesn’t come out if the Warriors didn’t just get emasculated on national TV two games in a row. We can all agree that he hasn’t been the same player since his return, but it’s pretty convenient timing for a report to confirm it.
Now I’m not going to straight up call Steph a liar and the Warriors sore losers because I’m a class act and that’s not how we do things at Bottlegate, but you’re all free to draw your own conclusions.
Hey Trash Nasty Gaming, you’ve got a permanent place at the table with every drink and food option, no reservations, and unlimited booze. If Dan Gilbert is as smart of a businessman as we think he is, he’ll have this dude sitting behind the Raptors bench Tuesday night talking shit to Kyle Lowry and Demar DeRozan until his lungs fall out of his body.
But now the Cavs have to play the Raptors instead of the Heat?
I’ll be honest, I wanted the Heat. I wanted the Heat BAD. From the revenge factor, to the millions of storylines, to Le Batard & Papi, to the endless shit talking on Twitter…. this series would have been an all timer even if the Cavs probably would have won it in 5 or 6. And it was robbed from us. Robbed right under our noses from that fake ass maple tree humping country up North (didn’t think I’d ever be shit talking an entire country on this website yet here we are.)
Hey Raptors, we’re comin for that ass.
Cavs in 4.
Y’ALL FUCKIN TRASH
