[b]look at how all of them (with very few exceptions) are trying to read between the lines of every statement from the organization or the coach and even of KD's IG post. look at how all of them are trying to dissect every single word including even the tone of voice used to pronounce those words.[/b] I mean, seriously? the tone of voice?! and this is now that the injury occured and KD is definitely out. the weeks before the injury the level of conversation and takes on tv, newspapers and social media was even worse. out of a sudden, every sport analysts, every commentator, every twitter account holder turned into a doctor with a degree from Harvard or a psycologist with a master from stanford....simply ridiculous.
media are disgusting. they are power-hungry bottom feeders of the worst breed. they have no ethics, no integrity and, more importantly, no connection with reality. most of the time they speculate without even doublecheck a piece of information just for the sake of speculating. I have no respect for them. they're literally full of ****.


This is part of a reporter's job. Granted, some media members are more responsible and ethical than others but, let's face it, part of the entertainment value of the league is giving fans access to the off-court drama. It's that way by design and one of the reasons the league is so popular these days.

I could imagine teammates urging him to play because they're the ones on the court and they will have the same mindset as KD as far as being desperate to play and compete and win.

But you have no reason to question our medical staff, FO or coaching staff. If there was any reason to believe from all the MRIs they did, and they did many, that his achilles was prone to tearing than there's no way the medical staff would have cleared him. I guarantee that KD has access to all the MRIs and they will be made available to legions of independent medical experts who will pore over them and give their opinion and it will either be pointed out that they missed something or they will be exonerated.

But to suggest that the organization did something untoward in clearing KD or pushing him to play is illogical, not grounded in any evidence and totally uncalled for. Do us Warriors fans a favor and stay the eff off our board with this slanderous garbage. Your idiotic pet theory is perfect for the cesspool that is the GB, I'm sure you'll find plenty of threads there to pollute.


It's called conflict of interest. It's not hard to believe doctors on a teams payroll who want to keep their jobs may start telling the higher ups what they want to hear. This is why for example police officers can't investigate themselves after a serious incident. The results "may" come out in their favour frequently . Leonard did the same thing. Got a second opinion which said the opposite of what the spurs doctors were saying. Surprise ? He decided to sit out and the whole world bashed him even after getting a 2nd opinion. Everyone just believed the spurs doctors ON THEIR PAYROLL. If KD did the same thing, got a 2nd opinion and sat out, the same bullies would have came out of the woods and bashed him. Everyone involved should admit their fault.


KD did get an outside 2nd opinion and he was cleared. Should he have gotten outside opinions until he got one telling him not to play? There is no reason to believe he was going to rupture his achilles, the injury was unavoidable as long as KD wanted to play. Don't forget, Kawhi didn't play because he felt discomfort that the Spurs doctors couldn't account for. KD felt ready to play and the doctors couldn't find any reason to say no. Totally different situations.


At this point the Warriors management is insulting our intelligence. Through-out the whole injury the warriors have been controlling the narrative. Not once have we heard about him getting a 2nd opinion. It was always it's a "calf" injury (we all knew it was his Achilles), it's not that serious, he'll be back soon. GS's medical team and his "2nd opinion" doctor didn't clear him until ironically game 5 when it was clear the raptors would most likely win the title. How ironic and how convenient ? After the injury and people are now seeing how GS only cared about winning over its players healthy, now comes this 2nd doctor out of the blue. Kerr who didn't even want to answer KD injury questions is now on the mic giving KD injury statements comfortably. GS clearly got their PR team together to figure out how to limit the damage or share the blame. Hence this 2nd opinion narrative starting. Even if that was the case, Kerr a former player deep down knows an NBA player even at 80% shouldn't be out there playing in the NBA finals. This is not your local YMCA team. The GS management isn't fooling anyone. Max and others know what really happened. KD out for a year. It'll probably take another year of full time rehab. GS better offer him the max, if not I can't see other FA's taking the organization seriously. This will be a black eye on the franchise.
