Was a finalist for MVP. Which means if we were actually the 4th or 5th seed he'd probably be the actual mvp, which would be his 3rd mvp which would be huge for his legacy. So yes it seems like you agree that the Warriors failed Curry as well.
I don't at all. I think this entire discussion is asinine. I will resist saying more so I don't end up having to suspend myself.
So you think it's ok we didn't give curry a chance at getting the mvp award? You think it's ok we didn't try to win games at the beginning of the season which ended up not letting Curry be a part of the playoffs? Those things matter in a historical context.
For some this is an asinine topic because it really doesn't matter for the Warriors. It's very specific towards a single player and his standing in history, which is what it is. But there's a whole forum dedicated to player comparisons where they do player rankings every year. So for these discussions these things matter.
Please stop posting melodramatic nonsense and attributing it to me.
"So you think it is ok we didn't give curry a chance at getting the mvp award?"
He's a finalist, ffs. Only 3 people in the league have a chance at getting it, and he's one. So now who isn't having faith in him? Your theory seems to be that we should have tried to make the team better so we'd be a 5 or 6 seed instead of a play-in team, because that would have improved his odds. But presumably don't trade for anyone *too* good, because that might undermine his efforts to be MVP.
"You think it's ok we didn't try to win games at the beginning of the season"
Nonsense. We did try to win games, every night. We just didn't *only* care about winning games. If we did, we would have played Curry 40+ minutes a night every night. And that would have been stupid.
"So for these discussions these things matter"
These things matter to armchair analysts who want to have overly simplistic stupid debates on message boards. And Colin Cowherd and Screamin' A. Smith. I'm really glad our team doesn't use that as the motivating factor when making decisions. Do I care about Curry? Yes. Do I care about Curry at the expense of everything else? Absolutely not. Part of why I like Curry is that he's a team first guy. I wish he had a RealGM burner account to chime in on this foolishness. If you honestly think Curry would have wanted to mortgage any potential future wins to try to be a 6 seed instead of a play-in team, I don't know what to tell you.
And now I really am done with this.
