I’m not acting like anything
How did you jump to that conclusion?
If you’re STARTING a team and you take dray over kyrie, then dray is your best player
There’s no way to make that work my brother
Unless you can wait 3-4 years and draft well each time. Dray as best player will get u a bottom 5 record for sure
Well if you’re running with Curry an Klay there’s not much a team can do to stop that
I didn’t mean he has no offensive impact at all but he reaaaally benefits from playing wit Curry an Klay
It’s a lot harder to make plays for average shooters
A lot harder to have an impact on offense when teams guard you
He’s one of the best defenders I’ve ever seen, no arguing that....but playing with Steph and klay even allows him to get away with blatant fouls and sh*t that no other player gets away with
From the below sequence. My thing is if you already agree he is one of the greatest/versatile defenders. Why is so much being done to downplay his stature & what he was brought to their team & as an individual player.
Breh game 7 in 2016 is still amazing.
That’s what I’m saying, if Draymond was on any other team he wouldn’t be so hyped like this
I was gonna say, "How did Rodman carry himself?" but someone beat me to it.
Lots of defensive specialists (Pat Beverley, Ron Artest, Bill Laimbeer, Charles Oakley) run their mouths a ton.
I think Dray's intangibles make the team better regardless of who's the best individual player on the team...
I hear you, and it sounds good in theory
But when have things ever played out like that in real life?
You could ask the same thing about a player like Kyrie as the 1st option that type of player ALWAYS needs a Draymond/rodman etc
No you can’t ask the same thing
Can you give an example of a team in history with a draymond or Rodman as the best player?
How about Indiana with Artest
Orlando with Dwight Howard
Mutombo with Hawks/Denver
All were better teamwise than anything Kyrie has lead
Slap yourself fam
You’re listing players who are clearly better than draymond
Draymond is better than all of them to me what the hell makes any of them better than Dray?? He is as elite defender as all of them and NONE of were all that gifted offensively
The only reason you are trying to make this statement is because dray is winning championships with his team. If he was on any of those teams I listed then I believe with his skill set that all those teams would have had success. Can't say they would have won championships but definitely would have been good teams
