AD and Kawhi are both injury prone....what's your point :lol: I can admit it at least.

AD is infinitely less injury prone than Kawhi at this point of his career.


He's still an injury prone player

AD is definitely more injury prone than Kawhi, but this is just an obvious result of being a more active defender. Kawhi is basically becoming more and more James Harden-esque at this point of his career and is barely moving on help defense. Kawhi mostly misses time because he doesn't like playing through pain, instead of actually having to sit to recuperate from a contact-injury which is mostly what AD suffers from.

Theyre an absolute lock for a top 4 seed barring health, which you could say about every team ever. Even with Kemba I don't see them as a complete lock to win the chip like the 2017 Warriors who had 4 hall of famers at their peak with a great bench to boot.

Cant wait until Bron stans start blaming AD for every loss.
