wait. Unlikely to return this year... so 2019? That sounds reasonable.

A broken hand takes about 3 weeks to heal. That + rehab to get the hand healthy enough where he can shoot again. So maybe he's out a month. Comes back in January. Yeah he's unlikely to return this year. I don't understand the outrage.

EDIT: Oh the image which didn't load at the time said "He's out for the season." That sounds a bit strange.

They weren’t stacked when Lebron swept them in the playoffs

Okay lol, 58 win team addresses its biggest weaknesses by getting Gasol and Green and on top of that adding a superstar.

earlier your talking up Russell Draymond and a bunch of scrubs as if thats a good supporting cast


Raptors weren’t stacked. What’s stacked was the 4 All-stars 76ers Kawhi beat in the playoffs

Apology for what? He was the main piece of a ream with 5 times b2b final appearances, 3 championships, 67-73-67 win seasons. It is rather haters are in full force because he won and accomplished a lot in the last 5 years.

Lets look at Klay compared to other #2 options from past NBA championships

Klay
Kyrie
38 year old Duncan
Wade 2x
Jason Terry
Gasol 2x
KG
Shaq
Tony Parker
Hard to tell for Detroit
Kobe 3x

Those are all the champions prior to the KD/GS run from this century. You have Jason Terry below him, probably whatever #2 you want from Detroit. Then a close decision between Tony Parker, Klay and 38 year old Duncan. Then you got about 10 championships with clearly better #2 options. Again GS won their 1st championship the first year Klay was an all star and Draymond's 1st year as a starter.

Im not saying Curry was surrounded by trash, that GS team was a very well built team. But this idea that this would've been the 1st year Curry wouldnt have been surrounded by all stars and the 1st year he would have to carry a team is complete garbage. What about the 2 playoff years with Mark Jackson as the coach and David Lee as his #2?

It seems we have much different definitions of "carry."


Whats your definition of carry.


I think when a lot of people say carry they mean almost no matter who else is on the team, that one player can get you to the playoffs and probably as a high seed. LeBron took some straight scrub teams to the playoffs. Harden has lead some teams of scrubs to the playoffs as well. For me the whole Curry can't carry a team is built on the idea that he can't go out there and play 37-38 minutes a game with lower level talented players and get you to the playoffs. I tend to agree with that thinking. But guys like Harden and LeBron can't senselessly fit into almost any roster in the league history without hurting the team.

Sure not stacked, just a better supporting cast than any other star had in those playoffs outside of maybe Embiid

:lol: some of you were so hard to see Curry struggle this season with this years roster and reading all of you cry about being denied is hysterical.

A championship team isn't stacked? :lol: ok bud. There were 4 title contenders last year (Milwaukee, Philadelphia, Golden State & Toronto) and all of them were stacked.

1 Superstar (Kawhi) + 2 All-stars (Lowry & Siakam) + 5 great role players (Gasol, Ibaka, FVV, Green & OG) = stacked

1 Superstar (Kawhi) + 1 All-NBA (George) + 4 great role players (Lou Will, Beverly, Harrell & Shamet) = also stacked

this was expected a few months ago, right after they faked klay's injury and then signed him to a max

What a joke your post is. OG didn’t even play in the playoffs. Siakam wasn’t an all-star last season

It's that stupid.


GSW couldnt beat a healthy Cavs team in finals without Durant


And Lebron couldn't beat the Mavs with prime Wade and Bosh. What's your point? Does that diminish his other accomplishments?


lebron is irrelevant....KD was mentioned in the above post and I was merely pointing out that the GSW could not beat a healthy cavs team without KD.

Sounds like a good plan to retool for contention if players come back to form after injury and 1 or 2,one from a DLo deal, good lottery picks.

He was super passive in the few games that he did play. Just running around setting screens for scrubs.

He was getting exposed night in and night out, he couldn't carry the Load without his Allstar Buddies. The broken Hand is a fake injury and their medical Director is one of the biggest frauds in Sports


I guess night in and night out could be used to describe two games technically. Are we really using two bad games to judge how his season would have went for the entire year?


I been saying since last season that he would be exposed without Klay (forget about Durant). I didnt even need to see the games of this season to know that.

I posted this before last years finals before klay went down

I know you are joking. It can be real...

Klay as 2nd option in Finals per 14G

18pts 42.3 FG% 35.0 3% 3.7 REB 1.7 AST 1.6 TOV -22 +\-

It could be one of the worst second options in Finals history.


The almost equal long range threat that he possess gives curry so much room to operate. Klay is one of the most under appreciated players in the league and if golden state loses him Curry will be exposed.


all while I had to Fight off "Warrior" Fans (Curry Fanboys) from labeling Klay as another Joe Harris.

is he?

Klay: 16.8 PER

Harris: 64.5 TS%
Klay: 57.0 TS%

Harris: 1.1 VORP
Klay: 0.5 VORP

Harris: .116 WS/48
Klay: .107 WS/48

Harris: +0.9 On/Off
Klay: -5.6 On/Off

Harris: .70 RPM
Klay: -.48 RPM

Klay only has him beat in PER...and Joe Dolla Sign doesn't get the benefit of playing next to Steph and KD.

like seriously, it's absolutely dumbfounding how overrated Klay has become.


^ignorantly just posts stats and believes it to be the end-all-be-all truth with no Avail.

WEEEAAAAK! Most of these players are so soft. Need more Jimmy Buckets in the league... guys who aren't little b!tches.

I get it, I imagine the owners of the Warriors want to sit him for the year and he's probably on board with the plan as well. I just think it's beyond weak. "No competitive reason"... so weak. What?... you don't get a guaranteed trip to the Finals so there's no reason to play?

If the original reports of this being a 2 month injury are accurate then this is really disappointing and obviously a tank move. I'm not going to jump on Curry/GSW yet though, Bucher is not exactly reliable. But sitting a guy for the entire season (minus a couple games played) for a 2 month injury would be an incredibly obvious attempt to stack up those Ls for lotto odds.

Millenial athletes...whine and cry when you realize that you can't win because you have less than 4 all-stars. Boo **** hoo.

So all of the sudden you won't even play because you know you can't win? What is wrong with this? What kind of example does this set for other players? For kids that idolize these guys?
