Kevin Durant is lucky to be so spineless to need two other top 15 players in the league to play with him and flex on people like he's the best, when he couldn't accomplish nada by himself.

All you're saying is Giannis got lucky that he didn't have to face a super team. Doesn't diminish what he accomplished one iota.


He literally didn't beat one good team. Injured Nets. The Hawks without Trae Young. And a Suns team who slid by injured teams too.

The easiest path to a Championship in history. And its not close.

Still a top 5 player. But hes not on the level of LeBron/KD/Kawhi.


I thought the easiest path to a championship was joining a 73 win team. I stand corrected!


Lol you guys hype up the 2016 Warriors like they were the greatest team of all time.

Yes they won a lot of regular season games. They also lost in the Finals and nearly lost in the Conference Finals.

And were mentally owned by LeBron after 2016. They needed KD desperately. Thats why they begged him to come save them.

KD needed them desperately too. That's why he pulled off one of the weakest moves in modern basketball history by joining them.

The Warriors didn't need KD. That's a joke.

They were a Draymond suspension away from repeating.

:lol:

Draymond was back for Game 6 and 7. They couldn't beat LeBron without KD.

Thats why 'Draymond was in the parking lot crying for him to come save them.

He's the GOAT of carrying stacked rosters.

By the way, 0/6 in overtime - unstoppable!

They were up 3-1 when he got suspended.

No one watched the game 7 loss thinking "damn the GSW really NEED KD!!!?!". They were 4 pts away from repeating in a game 7. In a series they lost momentum when their key defender missed a game.

Do you remember how most people responded to that FA signing? Keep telling yourself they needed him. :lol:

:lol: :lol:

If anyone wants to see some real comedy, I suggest you go through Hello Brooklyn's post history. This man was arguing how Curry was better than KD just two years ago and how Jimmy Butler was better than Harden just last summer. That should tell you everything you need to know.

If they didn't feel like they needed him they would have run it back instead of crying in the parking lot for him to come.

Don't forget the Cavs were better in 2017. You could make a case that was the greatest team hes been on.
