Great players you wouldn't take on the Warriors 

Post#1 » by ILOVEIT » Mon Oct 5, 2020 11:40 pm

My list...

1) Harden....
2) Westbrook
3) Lebron (this one is kind of close...but no...he's a chemistry killer for sure)
4) Butler. Don't care what he's doing right now...another 50/50 team chemistry killer.
5) Goober. Just think he's a dinosaur playing in a league where at least you got to have good hands and be able to take two steps and finish.
6) Gordan Hayward...cause I don't think he's that good actually.

Have I missed anyone on your list?
Looking forward to 2073....bye bye pouting moody Durant...hello again the 73 win style of hoops!

Definitely not taking Harden and Westbrook. I have no beef with Lebron but it would just feel super weird. I don't know the Butler chemistry issues well enough to comment.

But you missed Chris Paul. No way do I want that dick puncher on the Warriors.

Butler's the 1 player in the league that I desperately want on the Warriors. I have no idea why you wouldn't want a hard working leader like him, who calls out teammates for not working hard enough on your team. He'd be prefect with us.

Well yeah but at least then he wouldn't be punching our dicks, he'd be punching other dicks. And you get a nice 1-2 combo with a CP3 dick punch followed by a Draymond ball-buster kick.

1. Lebron is number 1, I want the Warriors to bury him not bring him in.
2. CP3 because he is a punk ass bitch. Stay bitter & eternally losing.
3. Harden mostly because of his style, it would become the Harden show.
4. WB, I enjoy Warriors beating him.
5. Kyrie, what a shambolic dumbass. A perfect example of how I imagine a University/college pseudo-intellectual with an exceptionally low IQ.

I hate Westbrooks game sooooo much. Screams arrogance. Will shoot his team out of a game with no conscience.

Honestly I could handle any of the others if I had to but Westbrook to the Warriors would turn me into a permanent badminton fan.

1. Lebron - apparently an exemplary human being off the court, I can't stand his on court vibe and all about me mentality.
2. CP3 - haha! Curry has his number...
3. KD - When a team gets good, it attracts players like KD. When those players can't handle that it's not about them, they leave.
4. Kyrie - FLAT EARTH....
5. Hardin - flippety flop and you don't stop
6. Westbrook - 90 miles an hour baby is the speed I drive.

Jimmy Butler might be a great vet to have in his later years. Depends on how he sees his role.
I can see him being like an Igoudala for a hungry team.

1. Harden
2. Kyrie
3. Paul
4. Westbrook

Westbrook is just a bad fit for the Warriors. I love his game and intensity. He would be a pretty decent fit for the Lakers, Clippers and Celtics. His salary makes him a good fit for the Knicks.

Harden, Kyrie and Paul can just kiss my butt. Don't want them and can't play with them. Harden and Kyrie are selfish and Paul is a whiner.

Basically any player who requires the whole team to play their style and brings a circus along with them is a no-go for me. I even cooled pretty significantly on Durant once he started changing how we played. This team is built on unselfish play and high IQ basketball, not early-2000s style diva basketball.

Melo and amare should thrive in this offense. If Jeremy Tyler and cole Aldridge looked that good in summer league then us knick fans have a lot to be excited about. Make room for all the bandwagoners when we take off

I can understand loving Westbrook's intensity, but his game? His game is not great. He's a ball hog, a stat chaser, and the worst kind of chucker, his defense is terrible, and the worst part is that he doesn't see any of it ... he thinks any failure is his teammates failures.

He is definitely in a world of his own. The last two or three years have been a disaster for him. No question his game even at his peak could have been more refined.
