I wanted to use some of the same "cElTiCs bEtTeR wItHoUt kYrIe" logic and apply it to Kevin Durant.


FACT:  The Warriors won a record-setting 73 games before Kevin Durant joined the team and ruined their chemistry.  They have failed to win that many since he joined - a clear regression that can be blamed on Kevin Durant.

FACT:  The Warriors have gone 31-10 in the 41 games Durant has missed over his past 3 seasons.  That's a 62 win pace.   That's greater than the mere 60 win pace they have had in games Durant played - including the horrifically disappointing 57 wins they won this season with Durant his healthiest.

FACT:  While last year's Durant-lead Warriors barely beat the Rockets in 7 games, it's notable that the Warriors coasted by the Rockets in 6 games with Durant injured.

FACT:  The Warriors were a beacon of good-will, positive vibes, and unity without Kevin Durant.  Since Durant infected them with his cancerous demeanor, the Warriors have resorted to in-fighting, bickering, and an ice cold locker-room - culminating in Draymond Green calling Durant a "b---ch" with cameras on them:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QlvfhXAc9XQ ... clearly proof that everyone on that team hates Durant. 

If I was a Warriors fan, I'd be begging the Warriors to dump that loser.  I'd be offering to drive him to the airport myself.   It's clear they are much better off without him.

They're really not, but they are much more fun to watch.

This is more appropriate for Cousins who doesn't look like a fit of Kerr's system.

cripes. another silly thread about how teams are better when they dont have the best players in the nba. any team, every team in the nba is better by having durant and other to players.

Democracy begins with freedom from hunger, freedom from unemployment, freedom from fear, and freedom from hatred.

Im going out on a limb to say the Dubs will not win a championship this year without KD.

The Bucks will murder them. Even any of the Raptors or Sixers can beat them.

Every team is better without their best player.

The NBA should make a list of the league's top 25 players and permanently ban them from ever playing again.

Replace them with G-League talent and we'll be good.

The Warriors beat the Rockets in 7 games with Durant....Fact, though saying barely is a bit of a stretch.

The Warriors beat the Rockets in 6 games with Durant playing 5 of those 6 games....Fact and there was nothing easy about winning. It was a tremendously close series. Every game pretty much down to the wire.There was no coasting and the Warriors played with Durant 5 of the 6 games in the series

Not only are the Warriors better without Durant, if they could get him on their opponent's roster they might never lose again.

Durant's literally the most skilled player in the game, perhaps all-time. He's not only a brilliant shooter, but he's an incredible passer, ball-handler, rebounder and defender. If he's not fun to watch, then I don't know who is.
