You don't have to be the leading scorer on your team for the offense to run through you. Thought it was obvious that CP is the one that makes the offense go. The point guard is way more vital than the big man in today's nba

He's 26, and with the improvements he's made on his jumper, he'll be in his prime for a good amount of time. I'm not saying you're wrong, but he's young enough to where, he could be the first option on a championship team. Whether that be on the Clips or somewhere else.

 

But even with that, a lot of great first options don't win championships man.

Usage % has nothing to do with who's the team's leading scorer. 

 

Percentage of Team's  points has nothing to do with who's the team's leading scorer.

 

Both of those are solid reflectors of who the offense runs through and in that regard, it's blake and it's not even close. This isn't conjecture, or opinion. These are facts.

Then that probably explains your troubles in the playoffs.

they shouldve blown that team up. still dont know why they gave deandre all that money. we know he isnt gonna be effective against a team with a decent big. they want to say his FTs wont effect them or his min in the 4th, but you cant trust him on the floor in crunch time

Damn do you guys really think that lowly of CP and Blake?

Not quite. (Btw this was abt Draymond and Blake, not the Clippers playoff troubles but I dig it. I'll let it ride)


Guys like Kobe and Jordan ruined the NBA fan because they have been mytholigized to a point where people actually think you win and lose with your best players in the postseason and it's just so much more than that. 

 

CP and Blake have been great in the postseason for the most part. Whether it's Blake throwing up triple doubles left and right, or CP giving you 25 & 15 in a game 7, etc. they have been very good. That's not to say that they are not w/o fault, but it's a lot more than the offense running through blake.

 

You win and lose in the playoffs with your buy low guys. Your role players and of course luck. In that regard, our role players haven't been up to par for the duration of a postseason.

But sure, trade away Durant's second longest-tenured teammate, and a vital part of their team. See how that goes when it's time for free agency.
Bruh I can care less about OKC, hell I hope they miss the playoffs again. All I care about are my Spurs. I want Ibaka on the Spurs, that's all.

Lakers coach Byron Scott on "noise" from fans: "I block it out. The one thing I've always said, and a great old coach told me this a long time ago, 'If you start listening to the fans, you're going to be sitting with them next.' So I don't pay a whole lot of attention to fans because fans are fans. Fans aren't at practice every day. They don't know the preparation. They don't know what goes into it. They just see the end product. So they have no idea. They all have their own opinions. But, yeah, I don't put a lot of stock into it."

I don't think people get how the Blake/Dray thing started. Only one guy straight up said Dray is better than Blake, the other guy countered that it was false, and in fact if you swapped the two golden state would be even better.

That's what kicked off the follow up comments.

I think anyone with common sense knows that overall Blake griffin has more raw talent than Draymond. However, Blake Griffin cannot do what Draymond does in Golden State. On either side of the ball.

Same can be said the other way around..except just offensively

That was never in question. And technically, id say offensively that's true. Defensively, it would be an upgrade.

If KD signs with the Warriors, he can come off the bench and still average 30ppg and win the scoring title, since he'd be beating up on 2nd unit's and playing the garbage time 4th quarter after the Dubs are up 30 already and starters are sitting.

Just knowing that situation and not knowing the player involved, it's just wild to think about. ​

You Dubs fans are getting soo damn greedy roll.gif

Kind of silly if he's not needed, no reason to risk injury. The chance to repeat should be the main thing, not scoring a bunch of points in a meaningless regular season game

No cousins for the Kings tonight

So lets get a jump start on how they would have beat the Ws if he played now
...and the Golden State would never paper hate...

What do you guys make of Jabari so far? Is he fully recovered? And don't you think he's played enough games to get into the groove?

He's been putting up subpar numbers so far. I don't even remember the last time he scored in double figures blue digits (I haven't been looking too close though).

New team(mates), worst defensive team in the league currently, and it's basically his rookie year. I don't look much into it

I seen the light and you guys are right. Steph won't win Most Improved this year. It's definitely going to Draymond. Dude went from not averaging a triple double last year to almost averaging a triple double this year.
