thats my point casual. If ppl gon use that narrative to denounce the warriors...why cant they use it in favor?
yall hate the warriors...just admit it

a 73-9 team that was up 3-1 before fukkery had no chance of beating the Cavs...sure dumbass

KD made the warriors unbeatable (they went 16-1 for a reason). Doesnt mean they wouldnt have still beat the cavs...just woulda been by lesser margins and maybe in more games during the finals.
Tsk tsk temper temper. You got anger issues in real life?

Like others said, same people - different times
KD has to leave to prove that he’s it
KD is a fool for leaving

I'm just convinced these NBA heads hate everything NBA outside of Jordan. Nothing is never good enough, then it all always ties back to "well what
Jordan would, wouldn't, would have done". shyt stupid.

Can’t win for losing… how you mad that he went there then mad that he left? :pachaha:

I mean his reason for leaving was kinda dumb and I wouldn’t have teamed up with Kyrie of all people.

That shyt between him and Draymond was dumb as hell too and them both saying that the organization shoulda stepped in to squash it was some cringeworthy shyt.

True but I think Stephen A is saying the biggest problem is he left Steph for Kyrie of all people.If youre going to walk away from a situation where youre pretty much guranteed rings, he needed to make sure it was a team he could win with. He shouldve went to the Clippers and played with Kawhi
And to make it worse, he couldn’t manage Harden which was also probably a guaranteed ring 😆

Curry don't have 2 of 3 rings without kd it was clear kd was best player on gs and won 2 finals MVP in his 2 healthy years


Also curry Thompson green jumped in a car 4 deep to beg kd to play with them after losing to cle in the finals


Kd never begged to play anywhere and bad luck circumstances has kept him from winning with nets

But curry in no way is better than kd outside of shooting

And he a ceiling raiser

not a floor raiser

Like kd LeBron Kobe are

Meaning curry can't carry a team he proved that last year when warrior team missed the playoffs.

He 6 ft 3 and not a good defender one of the reasons the warriors are below avg if green doesn't play.

A 6 ft 10 great player always better than a 6 ft 3 player


I say all this to say niether Irving or curry can carry a team far because of height so they both need a kd or lebron to win titles

I Kno curry won 1 without kd but that had alot of good luck and curry has the best org and one of the best coaches and a perfect system for him.


Folks just don't like kd why they say this nonsense like Steph better than him.

Kd much better overall player than Steph

Curry not winning title this year

I'm sorry Miami and Boston are better

Plus he clearly fallen off and won't win finals MVP in 6th finals trip
It’s not over yet but care to change your opinion on curry

I don't think SAS is saying it was a mistake to leave, just that it was a mistake to join Kyrie. He would be playing himself if he was saying it was a mistake to leave because he was the one who said KD going to GS was one of the weakest moves EVER by a superstar. If KD wants to take his legacy to the next level he needs to lead a team to a chip that wasn't already a championship team before he got there.
