At this point, Jokic is surely the MVP. I've seen enough. You lose your sidekick to injury and what follows is you leading your team on a 9-1 run. Naah, give that man his MVP.

I don't like to discuss with people who cannot research before posting. The reason the bubble was brought up is because that is when the Suns team played together consistently without their starters like Ayton missing games. The record we have is, they were the best team in the bubble BEFORE CP3. That is the evidence we have. Nobody said he has not made an impact, the issue is how much is that impact compared to the impact Curry is making in GSW and how much would the impact have been if the tables were turned. If you don't know what is being debated, just read and learn instead of chatting wass. As for OKC, lol, OKC were 49-33 the season before CP3 and 44-28 with him. At their win share, they would have at best won the same number of games. Remember, he played with Galinari, Shroeder, Adams, G. Alexander. Let me see how Lightening will not fire you if you say that Roster was not by miles better than GSWs. Look at this troll, telling me the Clippers team had injuries and were unlucky. Do you know Bogut was injury prone? Curry nko? When last did you see Klay Thompson play basketball? Besides, nobody was arguing about who facilitates more or better. Ben Simmons will also claim he coordinates better than Curry but is it not because he cannot shoot? The issue is, who makes more impact? You can average more assists but did your team win and win more? Some silly comment here said if CP3 was playing on the Warriors present team they will seed higher than they currently are. That is not only CAP it is dumb. So my friend, shut up if you have nothing to say. I saw you bring up Lebron, well, if you annoy me, I will debunk all the "Lebron drags weak teams" argument here once and for all.

you obviously a kiddo, that asides a useless fool to talk up the okc team without Westbrook and PG winning almost the same number of games. some one stated his claims without insults but you young fool who probably started following BBall 3-4 years ago can't state a claim without insults, go Bleep your self, fool.

Nobody talked up the OKC team. I simply showed that the team did not do better - they stayed the same. You can make the argument that Westbrook and PG left, but PG left for 3 valuable assets 2 of which averaged more points than CP3 (individually) or PG (collectively). They replaced PG well and reduced the burden of scoring that CP3 would have had to bear. If you saw any insult, please point it out. I called him a troll because he butted into a conversation without knowing what was being discussed. I will not insult you either so if this was to provoke me, you failed, miserably.

Re: The NBA Begins by birdman(m): 9:14pm On May 03
I am not stressing the Lakers - regular season wins mean jack at this point. They need to get back in sync, tinker with the rotations in prep for the playoffs. Everything else, including seeding is secondary

Now I don't know about you but I'm anxious for a Lakers vs Warriors play in game.

The gist is that Schroeder is out because he unknowingly leaked out the fact that him and LeBum are the only 2 Lakers that have not taken the vaccine during an interview with a German reporter. The Lakers and LeBum PR team had to scramble a way to keep Schroeder away from the press to avoid an escalation of the news.

Let me be very very clear, taking the vaccine is a personal decision for anyone. While I am a strong advocate for the vaccine, I absolutely believe it should be a personal decision and it is ultimately LeBum’s and Schroeder’s decision. Right now it is made to read like Schroeder got exposed to the virus and is on protocol. We shall see..

As for a potential Lakers v Warriors play in, I am not anxious at all because it would be a beat down by the Lakers. All the Lakers have to do is double Curry, triple him if you have to, pick him up high and force the ball out of his hands and that is a testament to “The Chef’s” greatness. The Warriors have no one else that can carry the scoring load. I think teams should be wary of the Wizards with Brodie and Beal. Those cats ca put up the numbers in a one game series.

So Giannis twice prevailed against your Ojuelegba slim reaper and all of a sudden the thread is quiet grin. The Nets don't want this matchup in the playoffs, they truly don't. And Giannis didn't even guard him until crunch time, especially in the first game. And each time KD tried to guard him we saw how useless it was.

And don't tell me Harden didn't play, because Harden wouldn't have prevented Giannis from averaging 43 in the two games. Even playing Harden would mean reduced minutes for Blake and Jordan, the two guys they constantly threw at Giannis.

Is it regular season when it is Lebron and post-season when it is KD? Did you see the Lakers the other day without Lebron? How did they play?

He's even better than his mvp seasons only difference is he facilitates less cos of jrue and Middleton stepping up their playmaking games. But this bucks team is ready honestly, Divincenzo has gotta step up too and increase his output especially on D.

birdman:


OK lets break down the clippers odoriferous saga. I know you remember Mr Glass, who always got injured come playoffs. In fact, all the playoff runs in those years was CP3 doing the best he could, getting them into the playoffs in spite of injuries. Do you remember CP3 feeding Deandre lob passes? Where do you think "lob city" came from? And that is my point! He turned DeAndre into an offensive weapon by studying the guys game. You can say they never reached WCF, true, but I can tell you DeAndre got huge contract out of it, looking like he could double double every night. If they had Mr glass consistently playing they would have come out of the WCF several times.
Na wa oh. Is that why they couldn't make even one Conference final. Not even the one they had a 3-1 lead vs a significantly inferior team?

Do you know how many times Chris Paul has choked or can you compare his playoff performances to Steph?

birdman:

And that is what the best PGs do. They take time to learn each players style of play. And feed them where they are most effective. Magic did it. Lebron does it to an extent. Timmy D is the only other big I know that had flashes of it. One guy pushes his teams capabilities because he studies everyone and makes them better. Another keeps his team in the game by prodigious scoring ability. You can pick which you prefer, I just happen to think making a team stronger is more valuable.

See this talk is very convenient. When the role players ball you will give him the star all credit, when they fail you will leave the star and give the role players blame. Scoring in the playoffs is the single most difficult thing to do and I will rate it above any other ability.

See, you Curry apologists keep missing the point. You assume I am attacking Curry. Im simply putting out the facts - Curry is far better offensively than CP3 will ever hope to be. But CP3 is by far the better floor general. Everything is not shade my peoples, accept the fact of life as it is.


While you are accepting that fact, also accept that a half injured Lebron in his 17th year and so much mileage still being in the top 5, maybe top 3 players in the league is bananas. grin
