Adrian Worj n his stories are pure fan fiction. Its just speculation. J
KD would never go there.

Initial thoughts are thanks but no thanks.

That's how I see it. In fact, if you swaped out KD with, say, Barnes or Iggy right now, I'm not sure it would make the Warriors better. Would mean less shots for guys like Klay and Draymond and probably less defensive versatility. If it made them better, it would be marginally, at best, since they're already so good.

Just doesn't make a lot of sense to me. Maybe if the Dubs were in the Clippers situation where they're pretty good, but can't get over the hump. But they've already won a ring and are seemingly getting better. Why mess with success?

some gsw fan is arguing on twitter with me right now that its a good move. he doesnt get it. saying kd will take less shots but make more. and that kd will fit the system perfectly. i said how do u know? all hes shown ever in almost 10 years is that he needs the ball and at least 15 shots to have a good night. he said... thats his coaches fault. 

 

 

.... fans are always one of the easiest ways to start disliking a team. everyone believing kd is a good fit on gsw is an idiot.

i snapped on dude on twitter. its pure stupidity. i called him out on his logic and instead of admitting the logic doesnt work across the board, he took it further saying that lebron would be a good fit as well cuz of the system. i said at that point that u have no idea why this system works. level up and get back to me.

:lol as if KD isn't already shooting like 50%

EXACTLY. u have a team running at 98% efficiency, why would u remove 2 or 3 pieces, replace it with 1 big piece that isnt used to the system (or any system at all) and hope to have the same output? 

 

KD demands a certain amount of shots. KD doesnt even show a huge uptick over barnes or iggy. he cant defend like iggy can, and he cant ge this buckets quietly like barnes can. to make it plain, this is the 96 bulls midseason saying "i wonder if larry bird wants to join us. maybe we can get rid of kukoc and rodman." WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY

dude is just an idiot. kd averages nearly 20 shots per game for his career. including when harden was there. so now we expect kd to join a team where everyone on the floor can score (not just him and russ ,) and give up the ball MORE than ever before? for kd to fall back and take 10 shots a game so everyone else can eat? all of this cuz woj said its possible? foh

If KD goes to GSW I'll probably never watch them play again. I have no interest 30-50 point blowouts every game.

Current GSW team > GSW with KD (assuming Barnes, Iguodala + some others are traded away)

imagine the excuses people would have to come up with for why theyre suddenly starting to lose games and argue on the sideline lmao. russ the whole time gonna be in OKC flourishing. just like harden left and flourished. no rings for either of the 3.... but russ and harden individually flourish without kd

According to new NT logic...Barnes is a better player than KD. Am I doing this right?

say Byron Scott & Derek Fisher are both fired after this season, which job is more attractive: LA or NY?

Let's just state the obvious

DeMarcus Cousins is coming to the Spurs.

Cousins
Aldridge
Leonard
Green
Parker

I would say NY cuz of Kristaps....but the Knicks always find a way to ***** it up. So I'll go with the Lakers.

NBA always throws them a bone. Can't have the flagship franchise be bad for too long.

no he doesnt. not on the warriors. becuz barnes doesnt demand the ball and is willing to ride bench for 3 quarters for the team. u cant have kd come off the bench. both kd and barnes shooting 39%. barnes fits the system while kd doesnt. negating KD's better offensive arsenal. sometimes, a perfect role player > an unknown (as far as their fit and how they will work on a team --think rondo or howard when they first got traded-- )  superstar

Putting together a team with the most individual talent doesn't necessarily mean it'll be the best team. Pieces got to fit. You don't just lose Barnes for KD, you'd lose Barnes + other important role players who fit in GSW's current system

bingo. warriors are killing cuz of the SYSTEM. u cant just take out pieces of the system and replace it saying "this will work fine." kd never been in a system. people think he would land in gsw and suddenly become a 10 shot taking 7 assist a night type of guy lol

agreed its the same dudes who think harden , durant and kd on the same team would win a championship. dont understand how a team works or know basketball and think a bunch of allstars on one team would be the greatest team ever. anyone who actually understands ball  knows it dont work like that.

Part of me wants the Warriors trade for KD to happen jst to show the world how stupid it'd be

Well, the uneducated part sadly ignore other cultures history.
The Chinese horoscope which consists of 12 different animals was invented way before the USA was founded.
Chinese new year in 2016 is February 8 going from year of the goat to year of the monkey.
The claim about a certain animal design would harass some ethnic group is ridiculous.

This is KD. ELITE off the ball player, probably the 3rd best shooter in the league, terror in transition, great passer, unselfish overall player. Underrated defender and if he didn't have to carry such a burden on OKC, he'd play more 4. This isn't some random all star being thrown into this warrior system. His skills and mindset translate perfectly.
