I'd put Westbrook at the 2 instead of Harden.

I wouldn't say he's regressed, but he picks his moments now. He doesn't press as hard as he did in the past. He's a much smarter player now, as opposed to being the dominating physical force he was for many years. He knows the playoffs are all that matters. There's no point in shooting for regular season achievements.

good god

It's not so much about what Team USA has, it's about what the international teams are about to NOT have. The top teams are losing guys. Spain is getting old. So is France. Argentina is basically done. The Dream Team effect has finally come full circle. The world got better in response to American NBA players, and the NBA responded once the world caught up. There's nothing the world can do about a motivated Team USA at this point.

Kobe won a ring in 2010 (and got a dubious Finals MVP for his troubles), but ain't nobody on the planet trying to argue that 2010 Kobe was a better basketball player than LeBron at that point. Well, except delusional Lakers fans.

Eh I think Kobe still had a case in 2010.

Kinda like what Lebron has now, they're not statistically the best anymore but they have a reputation and they win big.

No, I get that. I'm just saying that the international teams that have presented problems for Team USA over the years are falling apart (or will fall apart shortly). And, they don't have enough fire power to replace the departed players. The Gasols embarrassed Team USA in the last two gold medal games. Spain easily could have won both of those. Pau is done after 2016, and the next international competition isn't until 2019.

I remember rolling outta bed for it. Real hungover. And then wanting to throw **** at the TV because they couldn't stop Marc Gasol lol.

And, yes, I know Gasol was in foul trouble, but when he came back, they let him do his thing. So frustrating.

Steph definitely benefits from the GS system. Or does the GS system benefit from him? 8o

I think Nerlens Noel dropping in the draft was the best thing that could have happened to him. He took it personally, and he's been on a mission to prove everyone wrong. He's not a franchise player, or someone who will turn a team around on his own, but teamed with a guy like Okafor, all he has to do is block shots and crash the boards. I think that's a great tandem for the future. We'll see how the rest of it plays out though.

If you don't think Curry is #1 right now you're wild.

Pretty much.

You've got to be delusional to think otherwise.

They call him the young wolf. They say he rides into battle on the back of giant direwolf. They say he can turn into a wolf himself when he wants. They say he can't be killed.

LeBron hasn't regressed in the sense that he's not as good at basketball. He's just smarter. The regular season just doesn't matter anymore to him. He knows the Cavs don't need to win 60+ games. It's the Eastern Conference. All they have to do is coast to 55 wins, which will land them the second seed, and they can dominate in the playoffs. LeBron doesn't need home court through the playoffs.

bit of both. more of the latter. steph plays a really fast game. but a game that typical relies on pnr and single coverage. same type of kyrie situation. needs space to create off the handle. he usually gets single coverage because you can't double off klay or draymond. if you could, its a lot harder to do fancy crossovers through 4 hands than 2 hands. so the system and personnel help him.


on the flip side, he aids the system greatly by being able to do literally everything. elite passer, ball handles, shooter, scorer, and his on ball defense and passing lane instinct is decent too. he needs just .003 to get a shot off, which really helps with the sus picks the warriors set. its why they get away with so many moving screens. he breaks defenses down off the dribble and finds the open man or the cutter. takes and makes all of the big shots. can literally miss 4-5 straight then rattle of 15 points in 2 minutes. makes his freethrows. shows up in clutch moments. and stomachs the stress of key possessions.

i cant sense the sarcasm......how can people say that after the finals last year? the only knock was lebrons shooting percentage. if you're the clear cut best you should get the mvp and the finals mvp.

He's a different player. Yeah, he's not the athletic freak he was in when he got to Miami in 2010, and he's never going to match his averages from that era. But he's not a worse basketball player because of it. He's perfectly content to win 55 games then turn it up for the playoffs and make the Finals. Which is what the Cavs are going to do. LeBron is still that good, and you can't say that about anyone else in the league.

Curry should've gotten the Finals MVP. He was getting double teamed as soon as he crossed half court, and generally made all the right passes out the double team. Still averaged 26 6 6 if I remember correctly

Don't go down this road, because I'll piss off every Kobe fan in this forum by making the case for Pau Gasol deserving MVP in 2010. Which Pau should have won, btw.

i guess thats why people are discussing about the system/team and steph on whose benefiting from whom, which goes both ways IMO. they got dudes that could make a play when currys doubled as opposed to the cavs last year.

I hate this argument.

So Steph's greatness is slightly diminished because he has very good players around him?

If that's the case then LBJ's greatness is fraudulent
So is Westbrook and KD's...

Curry has not played with a legitimate great player yet like his aforementioned peers. He's one of the first players who literally makes his teammates better as soon as he's on the court. Because of the ridiculous attention he commands players get open shots and look greater than they are if they were on different teams.

Also this whole Steph is a system player bs narrative needs to be fanned out. Steph was showing glimpses of this play during the Mark Jackson era and in college.
