Kobe and Wade never had a bad playoff series?


Never had a bad back to back finals series...

LMAO double team on every play and let his team play 4 vs 3 = bad final series?

*bashes Curry for being "completely useless when his shooting his off," mentions Kobe as a player who isn't :lol:

Neither of them are "completely useless" when their shot is off, but there's no meaningful distinction between the two in that regard

Will the Thunder make a comeback? Or have they dug themselves too big of a hole?

Don't think he would fit well with Harden and Houston but maybe the Spurs.

When you try to team up superstars/stars you really have to think about how they would work together... I think Houston would be much better served with a star SF ala George or Hayward.

Curry still is one of the greatest offensive players of all time. The dude could be 0-19 from 3 and he's still gonna require more defensive attention than anyone else in the league

It would be fun to watch with HArden. Of course Harden would be the one making the most sacrifices and playing off-ball

I think a star SF like Hayward or George would fit better... I think we already have the ball dominant guard... I think WB would be redundant.

Curry is just so much better to build the team around. Jordan, Magic are the only guards that are easier to build for championships. Curry/Dwade/Kobe are in the same tier and Westbrook's efficiency and heavy USG is limiting what the ceiling of the team can reach.

Like Kobe's 6/24 shooting game 7 finals performance.

The Thunder need to wake the F up and realize that;

James Harden is not going to walk through that door.

Kevin Durant is not going to walk through that door.

Serge Ibaka is not going to walk through that door.

The Seattle Sonics are not going to walk through that door.

:sigh:

James Harden just fouled Jamal Murray 4 times on the same play and then jumped around like a child when the ref blew his whistle.
