This team is a nightmare for fans who have spent years trash talking KD and Kyrie
The GB is a message board driven by grown men/kids with the IQ of a sheep because this is a very pro-Lefraud board including the moderators. There's no objective critical thinking. I always insist, when the going gets tough or when shots arent falling who do teams turn to? For GSW that was always KD.
I have always insisted Lebron is overrated because he depends on the scoring and shooting of his teammates way more than the guys who can get buckets aka 3 level scorers like KD/Kawhi/AD. Its no coincidence that the best player in each of the last 3 finals were those guys I just mentioned (AD was the real 2020 FMVP if you factor out politics).
Heck, most of the posters on Lakersground.net are true Laker fans who dont let their hate cloud the reality of what the players on the Nets can do.
Kyrie has a pop in his step when he's dancing on the floor now. These guys love playing for each other it is obvious. They will make it work it was never a doubt to me at least.
The general board is a bunch of paid bots mixed in with a bunch of children I think. Nobody who watches and appreciates basketball can be so consistently clueless and agenda driven.
Check out some of the gems in this thread, pretty sure they've watched a total of 0 Nets games between them but still doesn't stop them commenting with supreme confidence in what they're saying. It might make you puke out your breakfast though so please be warned before clicking
It is a bigger reflection on societal issues as a whole. People are fed propaganda everyday in front of their faces, from Lefraud is the GOAT to all the mass hysteria on covid by the left, to landlords being a free involuntary social service, to virtue signalling and politics mixing with sports... its a disaster for the weak minded and those unable to think critically imo. Many people really have their values mixed up and cannot comprehend "the impossible". That is what holds many back. Adidas said it best, anything is possible and you grow as a person when you accept alternative view points that are thought out with reason and logic.
Also statistically, KD is arguably the GOAT finals player ever, and Kyrie is also historically a monster performer in the finals. It is not a surprise to people who can stop drinking the haterade because I constantly hear how guys like Curry and Dame are "without question" better than Kyrie, and while I can support discussion on reasons why these guys are better than Kyrie, it is funny to hear people always talk down Kyrie.
The 2016 finals werent won because Lefraud led both teams in 5 categories. It was won because Kyrie outperformed Curry (and also friendly whistle for Lbj where Curry was in phantom foul trouble in game 6 so the league could get a game 7 for their golden boy). Dame is very much Curry-lite in that they're not really that great in isolation and at creating their own shot without a screen. Kyrie is the definition of a professional high efficiency scorer at all 3 levels. In his current role he isnt being asked to do too much.
Harden has struggled the most in playoffs when teams can key in on him with strong disciplined defenders. The current Nets situation is a perfect situation where he will have 2 of the 4 best professional scorers in the league next to him (I consider KD/Kyrie/Kawhi/AD the 4 best 3 level scorers in our league).
