Lebron is better than KD. One couldn’t argue otherwise without coming off as foolish. Kyrie and Curry are incredibly close. You have no clue what Hayward will be like when he returns, but if he’s ‘16-‘17 Hayward I take him over Klay comfortably. And Draymond is equal to Al at best. He’s hilariously overrated.
Yeah I'm serious. You give LeBron this supporting cast and the Warriors might still be the favorites.
Are you freakin serious man? That Warriors team wouldn’t stand a chance
And if he joined us we'd likely go 16-0 in the playoffs.I think even if we added LeBron without sacrificing a single asset, the Warriors could still beat us. That's how historically loaded that Warrior team is. Two generational MVP talents. Three of the greatest shooters of all time. It wouldn't be easy.
One could argue KD is better than LeBron at this point. Steph is better than Kyrie. You can argue Klay is better than whatever is left of Hayward. Draymond is better than Horford. We'd have the edge with Tatum and to a lesser extent Brown, but there's only one basketball... and as long as you're going against a team composed of three of the greatest shooters in NBA history, you're not going to easily win.
I don’t get you at all. You’re arguing that they’d be more talented, which is untrue anyway, but even if they are we just beat two teams with considerably more talent than us these playoffs lead by Al Horford and some kids, under a coach who is still learning. You don’t seriously rate GSW this highly, do you?
If Boston added LeBron, he'd get injured in the first 5 minutes of Game 1. He's due. Guy is 34 years old and has been playing 48 minutes a night. Lol.
I agree LeBron is the best player in the world hands down. I'm just saying that one could argue Durant is on that level or beyond it next season. Bron has to start slipping at some point.
And yeah, Steph is better than Kyrie even in the rare instances Kyrie is healthy. Hayward's career is over until proven otherwise, and Draymond/Horford is at most a wash.
Bigger issue is, there's just no telling how a ball-dominant basketball god like LeBron fits with the rest of that team. What makes Golden State so dangerous, aside from the fact Klay and Steph might literally be the two greatest 3-point shooters in NBA history, is that Durant himself is a shooter as well. They all fit together seemlessly in a pace-and-space 3-point heavy offense. I'd like to believe LeBron could stay healthy, Kyrie could stay healthy, Hayward could stay healthy, and Horford could stay healthy in spite of his age, but even if they all miraculously were healthy heading into the playoffs, Golden State is a polished superteam that can go on murderous 3-point shooting barrages the likes of which the league has never and will never see again.
We've already seen a Big 3 of LeBron, Kyrie and Love get dominated by this Warrior foursome. In a normal universe, swapping out Kevin Love with a healthy Hayward and Tatum should be enough for Kyrie and LeBron to form a dominant superteam. But this isn't a normal universe. Golden State added an MVP to a 73 win team. It's unprecedented. The Warriors would still probably be favorites.
Moot point considering you can't add LeBron without sacrificing a significant piece of the puzzle.
