To me curry is just the better team player and he s probably the only superstar that will rather win than boost his ego....
He could have told KD to fuck off but he wanted to win more and it s obvious the media spins as if curry would not have won without KD but lets not get it twisted those warriors teams still evolved around curry...
Again like why would it be a good thing to tell another great player to fuck off? The goal is winning chips not proving your the baddest dude.
I for one would be extremely pissed if Lautaro would be like fuck mbappe i dont want him here... ( like how is that the smart or right thing to do?)
(also i know now way in hell we d have a chance but you get the point.)

There has not ben a single Kobe/shaq situation with Steph the KD thing was with Green and i think they even mended that imho KD would have left anyways. Also look at how the youth develop at GSW yes it s not all curry but imho he deserves partial credit for that.
I mean look at him starting the playoffs from the bench i dont think any other superstar would have done that even if it made sense. Heck even draymond insisted on starting his first game back from injury.

Just think Curry makes it easier to build a team around him than Kobe would.

Also last but not least fuck those lists they make 0 sense when comparing different areas and even different positions..
And when it comes to top 10 top 15 it s so close that arguments can be made both ways and there really is no correct answer.

Also lest not forget that basically everybody agrees steph is the best shooter ever.

I'm just glad he got this ring, because it's special. The narrative was going against Curry and he set it right. Also after two seasons of no playoffs, getting the splash bros back and winning again is a fairytale that makes me feel good.

Love me some Curry

His biggest haters are Lebronsexuals so it's just exciting to see them tormented over this :D

I don't think anyone takes the talking heads seriously. It's all for show with silly views from both ends to get people talking about the NBA.
I think Skip's agenda against Curry is to knock on Lebron. That this skinny dude has been tearing Lebron apart for years. But there might be actual heat there because Curry's team collapsed in 2016 which enabled Lebronsexuals to yap for decades to come.


Lebron fans hate the Curry situation because this was supposed to be Lebron's decade to prove that he's better than Jordan (lol) and yet apart from a bad Heat return (50% titles won with 2/4 when the expectation was 4/4), it's been Curry's decade. Their argument for Lebron as an all time elite player gets weaker and weaker with guys like Curry dominating the league this way. Because let's face it, apart from the first couple of years with Klay as the Splash Bros, the love for Steph Curry has been diminishing as years go by and I'm not focusing on the non-sporting side of it (2016 loss after 73-9, Durant's signing etc).

Lebron fans may not openly say that they dislike Curry for the exact same reason. They want 2016 to be special, so they want to give Curry credit. But deep down, they loathe the guy.

As great as KD is this fucken drama around him is getting fucken annoying, da fuck he thinking requesting a trade just cause his boy kyrie aint happy any more. Bro your problems are with Kyrie not the nets the nets did everything for you....

Would be fucken hilarious if he decides to again move together with Kyrie....Ruining your careere just cause you wanna play with your boy not realizing your boys an unprofessional idiot....

On the other hand kyrie has got to thank god that he has KD what top team would touch kyrie if it was not for KD?

Btw not a notch on these guys capabilities their amazing players just very bad leaders and decision makers.

I hope NBA will learn from Durant, Kyrie, Ben Simmons and Harden cases. They gave too much power and too much money players that underdelievered. Well, Durant delievered, but it's hard to make a proper team when the players are too involved in the team making.

The era of superteams must end and the era of teams should begin. This playoffs showed the future is bright, we just need Tatum, Dončič and Booker to not become primadonnas like the superstars of this generation.

Agreed i do kind of blam KD for the mess cause if he really wants to win with Kyrie he shuould have sat him down and told him to shut up and play for a year so they can prove to the nets their worth....
The thing i m shocked/disappointed by is that the nets gave durant and Kyrie anything they wanted up until now and these two have done nothing there.
Now they dont give kyrie a max and they both walk WTF?

Seems like nothing will change though as teams seemingly are ready to offer what ever to get KD and i m sure there are some that would take on both again.

Durant might be the most talented player I've ever seen, but his team building skills could use some work. The best match for him is Phoenix in a sign and trade for Ayton.

I think the NBA is generally doing better at getting star players to stay home. Guys like Mitchell, Booker, and Trae re-upping in smaller markets is a good sign.

I know Celtics want to win, but they were already so close this season. I don't think they need KD for that. Maybe I'd trade Tatum for another player that scores in high volume, but Brown is too valuable an an overall team player. Imagine KD + Tatum together, they would look like the current Nets
