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.

Talent on the level of Kevin Durant, steph curry etc. supercede fit

So while not messing up something good is a noble concern for the warriors, Kevin duarnt is a generational talent and in my eyes a top 5 most skilled basketball players ever. The warriors would be just as good if not better with durant

So if you have an opportunity to get a kevin durant you do it in my eyes

i think most teams would like durant, cuz they dont have talent on the level of durant.... gsw does. u said it urself they supercede fit. except, the warriors system is built around steph and the attention he brings along with him having a permanent greenlight inside of half court. u cant have two player in the system doing that. kd is a player u build around, not insert into a rotation around another generational talent. 

 

warriors are near perfect where they are. the only direction to move is down.

agreed. i strongly disagree with shoeking on this one. your the best team already . making a move is silly right now. i wouldnt take a chance messing it up to try get to better. how  does the best team get better. or why do they even need to get bettter. nah. gsw should pass on kd . they dont need to get better on offense and kd is food on d.

You ever heard the saying, too many cooks spoil the broth? Or don't fix what's not broken?

Warriors literally need nobody else.

Are you saying kd is not the sharpest knife in the drawer?
post #51653 of 93193
First time i ever agreed with chris broussard, the knicks need a real star on their team like durant. Even though its not going to happen. Just like olympic basketball melo is at his best when he plays off an elite player that dominates the ball and he picks his spots.

the Knicks won't be in the Durant sweepstakes unless we a) trade Lopez or b) Lopez accepts a bench role.

don't really see either happening

and i really dont see why durant would want to go to washington . the wizards arent that good at all.  Its going to be crazy to see where he decides to go.  how many teams are really going to interest him. I cant imagine that many.

i could see him signing a 1 year deal in OKC & really cashing out in 2017

No I said talent like Durant and Steph Curry supercede fit.

 

As in, its going to work. They are that good. Players that great figure it out and flourish. The Warriors system is built around steph and the attention that he brings, and the greenlight that you alluded to him having.

 

With KD that would obviously be a bit different and there would be an adjustment, but it would be a minor one. KD is going to flourish anywhere, with anyone let alone with a guy like Steph Curry, or Klay Thompson, or Draymond. Great players, or players that great rather, figure it out.

 

And finally, KD is a player that you build around. So is steph. What you're missing is that they are such great shooters, that you could build around both of them. They are that great.

 

The Warriors are near perfect, as you correctly said. However, you can always get better and I'm sorry we'll just have to disagree because you can't convince me that a team wouldn't benefit from having Klay / Steph / Durant / Draymond on the floor at the same time.
