    Dont forget lakers have a crazy bench. The nets got the star power but the lakers depth is insane. So I would say both are equally valuable and both have similar impact.

      If the lakers bench was good, they wouldn’t be the 5th seed

    Obviously Lebron, why is this even a question. Have you seen what the Nets have done this season without KD already?

    LeBron obviously has the biggest impact. KD has multiple MVP caliber dope players around him. LeBron just has AD and the GoAT Caruso 🙄

      Wouldn’t say ‘just AD’ but I hear you, it’s a lot more talent on Brooklyn

      Ad is better than harden, Harrell at this point is better than Aldridge and Griffin. Most would say Kyle Kuzma is better than every other player in the nets outside of the big 3. I would take Drummond over Griffin. Drummond to me in the right role Is better than Aldridge.

      Bruce brown, chiozza,nick claxtoon, Tyler Johnson ARE NO NAMES THAT WERE NEVER RELEVANT. Jeff Green at this stage of his career isn’t considered better than Dennis Schroder. Jeff Green is the equivalent of KCP. And KCP is considered better more relevant. Lakers also have one of Morris twins.

      People also forget the Lakers without LeBron AD and are a decent team. There are equal to nets without KD and harden.

      @Kisimba Wenceslas Naki The Lakers have a more balanced team. The problem is the lack of ball handling. Schröder can run the offense for part of a game, but he makes a lot of mistakes, and the Lakers’ offense looks really bad without LeBron directing things. Without Durant, Harden and Irving can keep the offense moving. The Nets’ problem is defense. Sure, they can brute force points in the regular season. I think the Nets will have a harder time in the playoffs.

      @Dan L. just my opinion but the lakers have more ball handlers and more players who can get their own shot… other than the big three
      No one else on the nets has an iso game or creates their own shot. The lakers have Lebron,AD, Harrell, Schroeder, Drummond(in the post), THT

      The nets will rely on harden greatly to create shots for everyone and he will have to play 40+ minutes a night and we’ve seen that when that happens in Houston he gasses out by the 2nd round and his shooting percentages fall but we shall see

    Lebron but even with Kyrie and Harden, KD is still the most important piece for them to win a title.
