Which player will shoulder most of the blame from the fans?

In this scenario, the big-3 are all healthy.

The obvious answer is whoever plays the worst. But if I had to guess I would say Harden since Kyrie and KD have rings but Harden's never made the finals so people will argue he's a loser who can't win in the playoffs even with a stacked roster.

Everyone of y'all is wrong. The obvious answer is Kevin Durant.

Harden has technically been to the Finals, although well before his prime.

how about don't blame anyone. watch and enjoy that play-offs and the abundance of quality teams in the league which is sure to make for multiple wonderful and competitive match-ups. stop watching ESPN talk shows, NBA is not meant to be a soap opera.

can't blame any of them for the inevitable 2nd round loss. knicks are a better coached team and they play with more of a sense of urgency.

The one thing I can tell you for certain is that I’m looking forward to the debate

In social media, Durant.

In reality, all 3.

Probably Kyrie because he always gets the blame.

I dont care who gets the blame, if they dont make it to the finals, this team will get so crucified here and in the media so bad it will be hilarious entertainment for ages.

If they don't make it, I think it's because one of them is hurt. Probably Durant with how this season has gone, so I guess him.

It will be Harden & KD. Only way I see Kyrie taking the blame is he takes 25-30 shots on below 40% shooting to shoot them out of the series.

I don't see how the Nets don't make the finals.

This year is tough since everyone is injured or sitting out. Their chemistry isn't established right now.
