    The media loves to play the blame game when it comes to superstars not winning a ring, as if basketball is a 1-on-1 sport.

    How much longer until the media starts blaming Durant and Chris Paul for not "having what it takes to lead their team to a championship." Dwight has gotten it. Melo Anthony has gotten it. LeBronze got it. So when does the media turn on CP3 and KD or will it never happen since they are such media darlings?

    PS: I love my city like I love my life. Don't tell me I am making this thread to put KD down.

    Por favor, responda

    It's coming for Durant whenever Lebron passes him the torch.

    I have no idea how Chris Paul escapes it. Must be his playing style. I can't think of a pass first guy that has caught flak.

    Its rarely Chris Paul's fault when his team loses, he can only make his teammates so much better

    It boggles my mind how a lot of people give him flak. I can't think of a post season he has been in where he has been sub par or the reason they lost. Maybe those '12 Clips but he brought them to that level and outside of Blake, that roster was ******g atrocious in the post season.

    He should get a pass for having that dog **** Hornets team win two games against the Lakers in '10.

    KD gets a pass for a couple more years b/c he's relatively young and is playing at the same time as someone named lebron ...

    KD will get one within three years.

    I don't think CP will ever get one.

    I agree.  I think CP is great but his lack of playoff success will be a dark spot on his resume, if it continues.

    CP is too small to be the best player/#1 option on a championship team

    KD, Chris and especially Dwight & Melo should be bagged on. Well actually Dwight n' KD have been to the finals so they are achievers. But Chris and Melo need to hear the criticism.

    He does, but not for having no rings, though. Melo doesn't get half of the slander that Lebron did for not having rings, and this dude hasn't even been to finals.

    I do agree that CP3's time is running out though. It's either this year or next imo.

    KD is good for a few years.

    KD feels it after this season if OKC doesn't come out of the West.

    How many times in NBA history has a team won a championship with their best player being a point guard?  (Serious question)

    I think this is why Paul gets a pass.

    Totally disagree with this.  Those championship teams that Billups were on were LOADED.  IIRC, those teams had 4 all stars on them. 
    Ok so one?  That's the point I am getting at.  In the history of the NBA, teams that are led by a superstar point guard rarely win championships.
