I felt like they would have been in the game even if Klay had not gone down. To me it's not an automatic game 7 even if Klay doesn't go down. Toronto was battling in that game.

Which part? Klay or KD?


Fair enough. Klay missed game 3 too so I was throwing that into the mix as well.

He just mean so much to them on both sides that I think it’s a push if he plays. He was unbelievable this series.

Strangely I don't see my last post anymore but I think you've read it.

Totally agree on Thompson though and you may be right. Keep in mind that they almost pulled it out down the stretch without him, he sure wouldn't have hurt their chances. Anyway, he's an incredible baller.

I mean, I don't put Curry in the GOAT talks for various reasons, but the guy is for sure an all time great, first ballot hall of famer


If those players had the talent around them Curry did they’d have numerous titles.

And it’s not just those players he’s compared to. You have people saying he’s as good as Lebron. That maybe the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard.


All I see are assumptions.
Curry is the greatest shooter in NBA history & has enough slick handles to drive for layups and floaters because of the respect his shooting earned.
Porzingis is soft fam.

Curry can't carry a team on his own. Now, what did he do in the conference finals you morons? And what about the 47 point game? What is wrong with people?

One quarter where he doesn't do something nobody could and he is trashed here


He's a Kyle Korver with handles man, that's all he is but people never saw a player like that play in the NBA so they've gone crazy. I did the **** he does in the park....dribble dribble chuck a 2 2 is 50% more than 1 and in a game to 21 it's impossible to lose if you have a pure J whoopty doo he can shoot....I can't even wag my tongue like Michael **** Jordan.

Whenever John missed a shot I wondered why the hell can't the players in the NBA shoot, and then I started watching the Olympics and saw the foreigners stroke it I wondered again...how the **** did John, professional NBA basketball player, go 2 for 18??

When Curry came along with the ability to handle it while stroking it, I just thought...oh, a guy who can handle it but not thinking about dunking all the time, so I see why people are amazed. The guy didn't have the athletic ability to fall back on like most ball players, so he became the best at what you're supposed to do....shoot a basketball. This is more of a black eye to the guys before him than anything else in my opinion...look at the kids now, they can all stroke it. About **** time....real basketball players, not grocery baggers who can jump.

But still, he has no impact in the game other than on offense, it's why when he's off he sucks. You should know something about dudes like him....

Even Carmelo could do more than Curry, he just didn't have his shot.

People legit compared this no vertical having short light skinned dude to Michael Jordan a couple of years ago and he got the first ever unanimous MVP.

Now let me ask you....what the **** is wrong with people?

Now seriously, I have to come back to that **** again, because when I saw this I almost puked. How embarrassing is this post?

Dude, I'm sure in your park everybody was very happy about your very own Steph Curry impersonation :noway: I'm also glad that you now know exactly how it is to play like him and could experience his deficiencies first hand. Too bad Damian Lillard wasn't there. I guess he was scared. Your judgment is from now on all we need and I truly value your insight and your knowledgeable, deep analysis and basketball mind. You really seem to understand the games nuances. You made my day man.

Lakers could get CP3 for free now :lol:

If the trade goes down July 6th, they might have no choice because they won't get Kemba or Kawhi for 24 mil. Houston would love to shed that contract, they could absorb it.

Seeing Melo hitting threes in the other tread, I'm convinced we're seeing him and CP on the Lakers this year. Houston will straight dump him on LA, Carmelo will be a late signing in the summer.

AD, LeBron, Melo, JR, CP3 lol

I'll need Kawhi to win it again...
