So many reasons to look forward to next season. By God, we will have our pound of flesh.

Love him or hate him, the king freed them all from the clutches of mental slavery. When he made these moves he was demonized and disparaged. Now every time someone follows in his path hes considered genius. He walked so that they could run.

You're high on retárd juice and I'm not sorry to say that. The disrespect to think John Wall should be up there because KD is there.
See what available data has caused.
The angriest man alive, sorry o. It's not a disrespect to KD, its just that John Wall was a superstar before his injury. But since he's had that injury no one is mentioning him. The same should apply to KD. How do you say you're top 5 when you don't even have the legs to play ball. He is likely going to miss a year, and until he returns and plays at the level we know him for, then I'm sorry we can't put him in that list. Top 5 no be by past glory. If not Boogie Cousins ought to be on that list too.

I'm making a list of the top 25 players in the NBA currently. Its based on Morey's quote that only 25 guys matter as it pertains to deciding the league's narrative next season.
Finding it hard to decide on some names though. But in no order.
Lebron, KD, AD, Steph, Kawhi, PG13, Klay, Harden, Giannis, Embiid, Jokic, Lillard, Kyrie, Westbrook, KAT, Jimmy Butler, Aldridge, Deroazan, Bradley Beal, Ben Simmons, Luca Doncic, Donovan Mitchell, Kemba Walker, Kyle Lowry, and finally Kevin love.
Where's Klay Thompson But there's Ben Simmons and DeRozan. Naaaaa

Eruditor:


Lebron Cannot shoot. Every fool knows it. But you are less than every fool so I understand why you don't know or see it. LOL @ Better numbers. With all the usage, lack of efficiency and stat-padding. Do you pray for a brain during your spare time? Why do you think nobody talked about Russell's triple double but instead praised PG 13 on the same team or why did Harden not win MVP in spite of his historic numbers? Three syllables: Stat- Pad- ding. That is the answer.

Ok. Father time is not slowing him down. Make we dey watch. I am eager to hear the excuses you would make. I already know Vogel will be blamed for it. Which reminds me, last season, Lakers were ranked higher than the Raptors before the season began. Then they did not even make the playoffs whilst the Raptors won the chip.

I almost wanted to ignore the rubbish about CP3 but may be just may be there is still an aspect of your brain that is not maggot infested. CP3's game was never based on the things age steals from players which is why the Rockets had no fear in giving him a huge contract. If your analysis of the Rockets chances are based on CP3 you are just typing for the sake of it.

I remember when they said the young Lakers core won 35 games without Lebron and so with him they will win 50 games. EL-O-EL
I stopped reading the moment I saw stat-padding. Now I know you're just trolling.

KD and Wall are not in the same universe at all especially with the injuries they both suffered. Wall is an undersized guard who can't shoot and whose game is predicated on athleticism. KD's game on the other hand even if he slows down upon his return will still be able to shoot over any opposition.
No pundit will bet money on there being 25 NBA players who will be better than KD when he comes back, but almost all take that same bet if the player is John Wall.

the person you're replying is incapable of comprehending what you just wrote and if he does, he'll never agree just for the fun of it. Imagine comparing an injured John Wall with torn is it ACL and ruptured achilles to an injured KD with torn Achilles who doesn't even rely on athleticism to get buckets.

Y'all should just stop with this athleticism nonsense. Every players game, bar the big men probably, is based on athleticism. Abi is it another sport they are playing?

Like I said, we'd have to wait until KD comes back and prove himself before we say he's still a top player.

The effrontery to put John Wall and Kevin Durant in the same sentence and call someone a dullard is straight rhetoric. You should check yourself into support group for retárds.


John Wall and Kevin Durant. Lmao.

Cry all you want. Two years ago John Wall would have been on this list. Now he's not, because of injury. Same thing for KD, until he comes back and proves himself. How hard is that supposed to be for you to understand? Although I've been joking all along about your mental health, I'm now having a legit feeling you're actually retar.ded. Why must it be KD vs everybody for you guys. KD is no more a Warrior so stop sucking his di.ck

When LeBron got injured and missed the playoffs they said he was no more the king, now KD has a ruptured Achilles and he's still top 5? Double standards.

All that rage and you still didn't make sense. Sorry big bull, this is about putting KD and John broken Wall in the same sentence not Bron as you would have loved. Since you only understand when Bron is mentioned. Imagine saying LeBron and Isaiah Thomas should be in the same sentence because both are injured. Whichever way you want to push the convo to, it sounds stupid. You should stop

LeBron fully rested and with a point to prove.
AD bulked up and with a chip on his shoulder.
Boogie slimmed down and motivated to get paid.
Kuzma working on his shot, ripe for the next step.


We're in a good position.

Ret.ard, there was a list of 25, I mentioned KD and one other player because of their peculiar situation, which is injury. You're here crying. Or should we put KD at number one through 25? Maybe that would make you happy.

And for you all saying athleticism this, athleticism that, I guess you don't see what has happened to Boogie. This man was regarded as the best big man in the game before his injury, and now he's nowhere near the list of 25. Or is his game based on athleticism like you fools claim? Athleticism my balls.

Lol I don't know about that. This current Lakers squad is very balanced and dripping with depth oh. Not getting Kawhi might have been disappointing but they made up for it much better than I anticipated.
We all know you're just preparing the noose you wan use hang James if he doesn't win a ring the coming year. wink
I agree it is a championship calibre squad in the absence of the warriors as we use to know them.

The list said in no order bro. Boogie was a top 25 player before injury not a top 10 or even top 15, so it is very visible then after an Achilles injury the drop off in ability will push him out of the top 25 players category.
KD on the other hand is a top 2 or top 3 player depending on your listing. Even if he comes back at 80-85% he will still be a top 25 player.

Let's lengthen the list. Is boogie a top 50 player now?
And make no mistake about it, Boogie was top 15 before his injury.

Is Boogie back to 85% of his best, or is it only KD that has the ability to return to 85%?

Boogie got his injury at the age of 27 and look how he is. KD got injured at the age of 30, so I'm not out of place to think that KD's trajectory will follow that of Boogie, or even worse.

Boogie was always overweight before his injury. One of the things doctors have pointed to as it regards KD's return is that his body type allows for persons to come back at nearly the same level when they left off. Dominique Wilkins came back even better from an Achilles injury and his body type was all lean muscle nearly like KD.

Let's not speculate here, we are going to wait until he returns. For now, let the sleeping dog lie
