    THE HATE IS REAL ON KD AND HE TORE THE ACHILLIES, AND STILL WENT BACK ON THE COURT FOR HIS SQUAD AND REINJURED CAUSE THEY NEEDED HIM ON THE COURT, IF THAT AINT GANGSTA THEN I DONT KNOW WHAT IS AND SCORED 15 PTS IN 2MIN ON ONE LEG

    KD was big in the Olympics and led that team of very good players. I think he could do it in Brooklyn but he needs better teammates. That guy gets so easily distracted it can derail him. Curry is friggin bulletproof there – old school even. But Durant is crazy insecure/sensitive.

    this what happens when tv producers and twitter users are given final word on a player’s legacy. KD stamped if he retires tonight

    Give the warriors PG or Kawhi they’re still gonna win back to back chips. Look at the warriors this year, give them a healthy Klay and Wiggins and they immediately win a chip, beating the Celtics that swept the kd led Brooklyn nets

    No one is saying that kd didn’t make golden state better there saying that they already won a championship and was up 3-1 then draymond gets suspended iggy gets hurt and there starting center then you get there and yes he got the championship but he wasn’t the guy it was always curry’s team yes kd played the best but let’s not act like curry didn’t take a step back to let him be great bro averaged 27ppg and 28ppg in those finals and even Tyron loue said that they game planned to stop curry not kd they couldn’t double kd because they had the 2 best shooters ever spoting up

    What about Jordan before he made the finals?? People only judge Jordan on 6 years only… Lebron and Wilt + Curry Kd all changed the game and were an impact each year. Curry always had that 3.. WE GOTTA DO OUR OWN RESEARCH 🧐 🔬 AND STOP AGREEING WITH SOLELY THE NON NBA ANALYSTS SAY

    Both steph and kd are great players, both among the best in this generation. I never believe that steph need to win another ring or fmvp to solidify his legacy just like how kd didnt need to win another too. But the media and the fans always talking like steph need to win another without kd. So why kd didnt need to do the same when they achieve all that playing TOGETHER? I dont like the disrespect toward both of them, but the media is always making it a case.

    Swagu is one of the dudes who breaks this legacy debate down without appearing to be naive or ignorant. Kd, just like Steph before this years chip will go down as one of the best to ever do it regardless, however, to say that winning another chip in Brooklyn won’t elevate his legacy is being disingenuous.

    👑 warriors 👑 was excellent before kd. ESPN’s always hating😂😂😂

    JJ YOU TRIPPING . KD BETTER DO IT AS THE LEADER ON HIS OWN TEAM

    Nah, the dubs were already good. Getting kd was a bonus.

    even if it’s not KD just another all star shooter like PG/de mar/lowry …. gsw can still get the title….but if you remove steph..for sure they won’t get the title and that’s the difference

    It’s crazy to think the Nets superteam with Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, James Harden, Joe Harris, Blake Griffin, and LaMarcus Aldridge went nowhere

    JJ is being disingenuous. If KD wins outside of Golden State, it will change his legacy. Whether it’s right or wrong is beside the point. If he wins outside of Curry, it absolutely changes his legacy.

    And Curry winning without KD, after winning 2 with KD absolutely changed his legacy. JJ is trying to hold his ground, but he’s full of it. He’s just being stubborn.

    Dub are a great team. Durant is a great player. Great teams win championships. Great players can join great teams to win championships.

    How is kd top 12 Lmao

  21. john Smith

    June 22, 2022 at 11:22 am

    If kd is top 12 Gianni’s is top 10 curry is top 5

    Kd resume is not that impressive to be top 12

    Bill wilt Kobe Duncan shaq MJ Kareem magic bird lebron Curry Hakeem dr J

    Giannis will be on this list when his career is over

    There are 12 players with better resumes

    Durant is a great player but people get blinded by the media Durant he doesn’t make anyone around him better the only reason he got 2 chips was because the warriors had an established team and you could’ve easily placed any super star on that team and they would’ve won not just Durant

    The warriors are not a selfish basketball team everyone on that roster actually plays there role

    Basketball a team sport we act as if people face the 5 players on the court alone just because they are the most skilled I blame the players around him in OKC and in Brooklyn they almost beat the bucks in the ECF with just him being the best player in every playoff series he’s ever played in he’s just one man the supporting cast should be better. I hate the “Warriors won with out him” narrative those warrior teams those years were stacked good starting 5 with basically another starting 5 coming off the bench. Same with this years team you have a supporting cast that compliments the star player so he can succeed and the highest rate. Sometimes it’s not the individual player it’s the situation they are in.

    To the last question and JJ’s answer: To some people yes, but not to you? How does Steph winning another title and FMVP not move his place in history according to you? So he’s at a standstill in his career and JJ’s basically saying he can’t move up in the all time list or get set back, dudes a weirdo and afraid to give a real take scared shitless to offend his former contemporaries – Mark Spears owned him on this take

    Just like Molly enriched so many former NBA players

    STOP IT! GSW won 4th championship, Curry is FMVP and you still make it about KD. Who cares! He left ages ago! Let him be himself, make his own history and dynasty.
