Dame isnt an elite point guard, but he certainly is not overrated.

People forget that the strength of the Blazers is their backcourt....but when they play the Warriors and only the Warriors, their backcourt isnt the best of the 2. That is why the Blazers never beat the Warriors. Dame is good. Really good. He is just the 2nd best point guard in the series, and plays like that.

Doesnt mean he is overrated. He is just overmatched in this one particular matchup.

Plus missing Nurkic was huge for them. People downsize that too much.

Dame saying that would have made a difference. Lol, okay, so would KD, Iggy, and Cousins.

I think he meant them with Nurkic against Dubs without KD, Cousins.

you dont think if Nurkic was healthy that it would be a tougher series (with KD/Demarcus out, and Iggy injured after game 3)?

For sure. But you can apply the same logic to our injured players.

Sure. Not downsizing that at all. I am simply stating its tough to beat a team when your team's strengths arent better than your opponent in that same area....especially when top to bottom your team is the inferior team talent wise.

Dame didn't say you can't. Enjoy the winning and stop nitpicking other teams/players.

I'm saying what he said was dumb. He should take the L and accept it, not make excuses. Take responsibility for playing overall, fairly poor, in the WCF.

Still don't know who I'd rather play - Toronto or Milwaukee?

Neither team is all that besides the two big names. It's a 4 game sweep with any of the top 12 West teams.
