Wait a minute -- the very first season after Lebron left the Warriors lost the title because Durant and Klay Thompson both went down with crippling injuries. So how can you say "one more season of LBJ+Kyrie was not going to make a difference"? THat makes no sense.One more season of LBJ and Kyrie was not going to make a difference given GSW's acquisition of Durant, and the significant dropoff in defense among the Cavs wings from 2016.
What I am saying is that if we had either kept Lebron/Kyrie together for one more year, or replaced Kyrie with players who really worked for us, then we would have gotten the benefit of that instead of the Raptors.
Of course this assumes we could get past the Raptors with Kawhi Leonard, but it's not like we ever had a problem with them before.
I don't think this is an unreasonable argument.
