To be fair to the Raptors, they weren't a super team either, but it wasn't a homegrown thing being as they rented Kawhi for a year.

Still, it was a legit non-super team championship, IMO.

Yeah, Toronto's team was mostly built around young homegrown guys, a couple of key veteran role players (Gasol & Ibaka), an aging all-star (Lowry), and 1 mercenary All-NBA caliber player (Kawhi). Definitely not a super team.

That first GSW team was completely homegrown and deserves all the recognition.

The 2 other GSW champions were shortcut chumps, though.

This was after game 5.
This guy is so Greek, I love it.

And this definitely feels like the only natural, feel good title since the first Warriors championship. The Raptors certainly weren't a superteam but the Kawhi situation was so weird and you basically knew he was probably gone one way or the other.

Plus it's an asterisk title, without Durant and/or Thompson getting hurt there's almost no chance they win.

As an aside, I hope Giannis wins another 2-3 in Milwaukee over the next 10 years and makes the next generation want to follow in his footsteps and shun all this shucking and jiving bullshit we've seen out of LeBron and Durant.
