i'd bet he felt he had to play, down 3-1, regardless of his discomfort. all the complaints of kd not being tough or a leader are officially moot. risked his career to help his team win.


No, the complaints about him being tough or a leader are not officially moot. This was all about HIM, about his narrative, about being the hero and elevating HIS brand. The Warriors new damn well he shouldn’t have played and yet they let him play because they didn’t want to piss him off. KD is an A-Hole and a complete narcissist. Still, some fool GM will max him out and pay for it down the road. He will never be the same player.....ever.

Rockets going to end up trading Paul for Gordon Hayward or to the Suns for spare parts. I find it absolutely hilarious they're just going to eschew their best shot at a title over ego. Couldn't happen to a better fanbase.

meh. the longer I'm on Twitter the more I realize that all fanbases are more or less the same, just distinguished by the size of their lunatic fringe. Which is usually directly proportional to fanbase size.
