In no order, super stars are players like KD, LeBron, Steph, Kawhi, AD, Harden, and maybe Giannis. Westbrook used to be a super star but he's declining to the point where his style is just so detrimental to being a championship contending team.


As much as he wants it, Kawhi is never going to be a super star. He doesn't talk enough, he's not liked or even hated enough, he just doesn't measure up in PR to be a super star in the traditional meaning of the word.

Winning titles with 2 different teams, being the best player at the time on those 2 different teams....not to mention the fact that an entire Nation was begging him to stay and represent their country, I'd think Kawhi fully qualifies as a Super Star.

Just a different kind.

Not gonna lie -- Carmelo Anthony for the Warriors I think I want to see! Melo has something to prove being shut out by so many teams and I honestly think he wants to go out the right way and will play the right way (I know I’m crazy!)

Off the bench for small ball lineup for WCS. Lol. Mid range jumpers all day.

So you are willing to give up on McKinnie for Carmelo? I would rather hang on to McKinnie as I think he has more future potential than Melo.

Only guys who've wanted Melo are guys like Westbrook, Harden, CP3, Lillard and McCollum.

These guys may be great players but they're not such great talent evaluators.

Or at looking at analytics, though there's kind of a black vs. white divide on the use of analytics.
