And burn out during the playoffs. Aside from injuries, that's been OKC's problem in the playoffs. Durant and Westbrook go so hard in the regular season they have nothing left. Now that Brooks is gone there won't be so much 1-on-5...hopefully.

have we ever seen them burnout? or look tired? they're like 26 bro

While KD is less about the "look at me", and more about getting the job done.

Basically. im trying to figure how everyone read that as a subservient statement on Jr's behalf

I wonder how Russel would play when he's in his 30s. 

post #2405 of 93193

KD softest player in the league by far.

Kyrie has to be one of the most overrated players right now. He's almost as injury prone as Drose

Bestbrook isn't going to be able to play in his 30s. Much like LeBron he depends too much on his explosive athleticism, which doesn't last long.

Why I think Melo will have a longer (but much less successful) career than Lebron

Average can get you the 5th seed in the East though. The 5th seed last year had 46 wins, the 6th seed had 41. The Celtics won 40 games. It's not crazy that they could be four or five games better this season. They're not winning 47+ which Bill seems to think they will.

He won't be a good player once his athletic ability are on the decline .

Against the Spurs in 2014. I know Ibaka missed the first two games of that series, but Durant was definitely gassed by the end. It doesn't matter how old you are, your body can wear out. Look at Blake Griffin. He runs out of gas too. All that dunking and reckless play takes a toll on your legs.

Lebron is one of the most skilled players ever. he doesn't "rely" on his athleticism at all.

wonder how many other corny quotes kd keeps in that knapsack of his he wears during press conferences

What about Westbrook's energy though. His athleticism may be gone but his personality of being a cocaine wired nba player...

The 6 teams ahead of them in the playoffs last year either got better or just still are better than them right now. Then allocate a sizable chunk of wins to the Heat and Pacers. The additions of Amir Johnson and David Lee dont have me sold that there will be a significant enough jump in wins. I think they'll be exactly where they were last year. 39-41 wins on the outside looking in, and probably missing the playoffs because of Indiana and Miami.

I understand that you said "its not crazy" which I guess i agree it's not. But I just dont see it.

LeBron jump shooting stats in 2015 playoffs:

70% at the rim

23% on threes

31% on long twos

36% on mid-rangers

31% on short range jumpers

One of these is mostly dependent on athleticism. Four others are mostly dependent upon skill.

Blake said last year after the Rockets series ended that he was the most exhausted he's ever been in his life. Not an excuse for them choking, but he was worn out.

Bs . He's always been bigger faster and stronger then everyone . He does have some skill but not as much as you are saying he does

Really don't think Russ would be nearly as revered by some people on here if weren't for Kobe's "mamba blood" comment. He's great. Definitely top 10, arguably top 5. But some of you guys talk about him like he's a superhero.

QFT

He scowls, is mean to the media, throws up a ton of shots and is alpha. So he's the best! NT logic.

True. Attitude and that killer instinct is the appeal to me. MJ and Kobe are the only 2 I can remember who's as heartless on the court.

The best players of all time have all had some type of physical advantage over their peers. This is partially what made them great. You can't take anything away from Bron because of his size & athleticism combined with skills.

MJ- Vertical & Quickness
Magic- 6'9 PG
Wilt- Self Explanatory
Russell- See wilt
Bird- 6'10 guy who moved and shot like an SF
Shaq- Self Explanitory
Kobe- See MJ
