So are we holding Dame to a standard this year or does he get to play the perpetual underdog? Again

    The roster he has this season is MORE than enough to make serious noise. Or is he just gonna get to coast and have a few 50 point games on a barely above .500 team and get compared to players whom are at least a weight class or two above him?

    Expectations are always going to be low enough for Dame to get hot for a few weeks and overcome them. Once again Portland won't be good enough to REALLY get over the hump. Fact of the matter is, you aren't going to win a title or truly even compete for one with him as your best player and focal point. He ain't Iverson or Harden level.

    Does John Wall make more noise than Dame this season?

    Don't do that, was Iverson playing with multiple All-NBA contemporaries in '01 or nah?

    How about '20 Jimmy Butler?

    What about Duncan in the 00s, particularly 2001-07, a stretch he pulled in 3 rings?

    '11 Dirk?

    '07 LeBron?

    '15 Steph?

    I mean this list is endless....

    Him and Giannis, more than anybody else, these two are under the gun for sure for sure. Put up or shut up time...

    I’m sick of it personally. And then he’ll have a random 60 point game against the kings or some shyt and his front running fanboys gne start sprouting up talking shyt, completely ignoring the fact he’s underachieving with his roster

    2001 eastern conference and he's not a contemporary :francis:

    He didn't have to face anything close to the dynasty Warriors to get to the finals and had never been to a conference finals before last year

    He's not as good as Duncan and i've never seen anyone claim such :yeshrug: and Duncan isn't a contemporary

    Contemporary bruh ... but even if we use this example you're just highlighting the exception

    He's not as good as LeBron and i've never seen anyone claim such

    Klay was all-nba in 15 and has dame ever played with 1 all-star let alone all-nba player ..let alone 3 like steph would later do ...btw I hope we're keeping this same energy for Steph this season ... Finals or bust right?

    Doesn't seem so G

    He already got his team to a conference finals in the West ..I think thats about a proper max out considering his team compositions

    I wouldn't include Duncan in that list as a whole. Parker and Ginobili were clearly elite players by '04-05.
