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

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.
He's a cancer that ruins the Warriors.  If I'm a Warriors fan, I'm personally driving him to the airport.

Ha. Would you take Hayward, Tatum and 2 firsts for him?

The are not better without him, that's why all fans (except GSW fans) cried when he signed there.
Proof: They win the title every year he wears their jersey.

Maybe if I pump out a couple more threads, people will listen to my podcast!

They aren't but I will say this, Curry has and always will be the most important player for their wins and losses.  Curry is far more valuable to them but Durant is the better overall player and gives them something they don't have without him

  • Sometimes there's no sane reason for optimism.
I like how some people are not seeing the sarcasm in LB's post. I mean, he is obviously providing statistics for why these things could be true (just as Cs fans do with Kyrie), but any team would love to have KD and everybody know it. TP, LB - that was a funny exercise.

Waiting for the Kobe analysis that takes his game apart, reveals him for the selfish team destroyer that he is.

Simple timeline.

Spring 2016   Lose in finals
Summer 2016  Sign Durant
Spring 2017   Win in Finals
Spring 2018   Win in Finals

It is interesting to see that for a team as good as the Warriors were in 2015/16, adding a player even as elite as Durant doesn't impact the team as much as Durant would if he was added to say New York Knicks.  Kind of a diminishing return phenomenon.  People who over analyse or want to instigate can extrapolate this and say Durant isn't that good or that the team is better without said star player.  I don't buy it nor would any coach or GM.

Great analogy.

You right that C’s without Kyrie and Dubs without Durant are more fun to watch but worse without them  :D
