    I posted the bucks well before tip. I took them because I realize Durant had garbage around him and 50 points again would be toughÖ.although he scored 48 in another incredible performance. What does Jordan have to do with KD incredible series?

    I dismiss it because Durant would shred him, as he's always done. And then Klay Thompson tears his ACL in game 6, a game that the Warriors were winning almost wire to wire.

    You're not gonna build your legacy off injuries, at least not in my book. If Thompson stays in, and Leonard wins, I give him all the credit. Thompson was the best player in that series. He was destroying Leonard in game 6, and leonard asked to guard him.

    Not hard to win a ring when you're playing against Curry and a bunch of d leaguers. No respect for that ring, sorry. Just my opinion though.

    I wanna see the underdog beat the all star team when they are healthy, like when the Mavs beat the Heat in 2011? I was on Miami. You remember. Dallas won that series fair and square. Dirk was a straight monster. They turned Lebron into a ghost. That's how you win a championship. That's how it's done. Or when the Pistons took down Kobe and Shaq. That's how it's done.

    Not this injury bullshit. Fair point or not?

    I also think Pippen is vastly overrated and benefited more from playing with Jordan than the other way around

    Did Jordan need him ? Of course, but that's just because he needed another strong player, could have been any number of players but my opinion, Pippen wasn't that special

    Great defender but if he played his entire career without Jordan, is he still regarded as a generational great ? I doubt it

    So if the Suns or Bucs win the championship this year does it count? Will you have respect for Booker or Giannis? Or will it be a fluke because of injuries?

    Gasol will be a hall of famer because he's an international but Lowry ? That seems a bit of a stretch

    Anyway, Van Vleet was the 2nd best Raptor in that series in my opinion

    You'll get some respect, but you're not getting the type of respect Dirk got from me when he beat the big 3, all healthy. That's how it's done. That's how you win a ring. That's how you earn my real respect. If Giannis is so great, then lets see him win a ring this year, and then repeat next year if he plays against healthy teams. And if he faces the nets again for example and gets swept, then his ring means nothing to me, because I'll know that it was a fluke.

    You simply got lucky.

    No need to make a thread about it.

    Acknowledge your luck and move on.
    Injuries and luck are what you need to win titles. Irving has stayed healthy for 1 season basically. Thats not a reason to use for losing because he might keep getting injured. But what it truly comes down to is that giannis a guy who cant hit threes and cant make free throws was allowed to score layups and dunks on big possessions when durant should have just fouled him. Durant proved tonight he needs to play with players that are winners(Steph, Klay, Draymond). Instead he chose to play with a pg who has only stayed healthy in really one playoff run and a sg who has yet to prove hes a winner. He didnt want to play with golden state because hes mentally weak and they are too hard on him. So instead he will get early playoff exits

    These guys hate Jordan. They think pippen didn't benefit of Jordan. Apparently the greatest NBA player of all time only benefited of Scott Pippen. A guy who would have amounted to nothing without mj.

    His game 5 was one of the greatest performances in playoff history. Because he didnít win the series it doesnít count? What kind of logic is that? Jordan scored 63 against the Celts and lost the series and they talk about it 30 years later.

    If you donít like the current nba thatís too bad because youíre missing great things. Half those guys that were playing when jordan was playing, couldnít make a roster now. His toughest defender was joe dumars at 6í2. Lol

    Jordan played in a weaker era, he was so ahead of everyone. Kobe shredded him for 42 points in 1.5 quarters.

    I repeat, Kobe scored 42 on Jordan in 16 minutes.

    If Kobe played in Jordan's era, Jordan would struggle with him. Most all defensive first teams ever for kobe.

    There was no other player like Kobe in Jordan's era. Hakeem was the 2nd best player in the world. Hakeem nothing compared to Bryant.

    Embiid is the best big man in the league but a healthy Lebron is still the leagues best player with KD right behind him. You like to put words in my mouth for some reason. Anybody see Jokic lately? That fraud should go to Europe and give back the mvp trophy.

    Kawhi, the guy who's never played a full season in his career. For someone who talks all the time about player softness and missing games, I don't understand your obsession with Kawhi. Has he even averaged 20 ppg for his career? Leonard is on his 3rd team now as well. Hopping around joining all stars.

    Kawhi did nothing that year in my book. He beat a team with Steph Curry and a bunch of D league players. Kawhi won a finals MVP averaging 17 ppg. Pitiful. Wasn't even the 3rd option on that spurs team. He was the 4th option, and they somehow rigged it to give him finals mvp.

    Durant has never played on a team where he was the number 2 option. Just think about that. Kawhi has been a number 4 option for like half his career.

    His career isn't that good bro. He's a great player and might win another ring this year if he comes back, but you're not gonna miss half the games in your career and I'm gonna call you an all time great.

    Itís not a comparison but you need to see how silly you look by saying his game 5 performance means nothing because they didnít win the series.

    And yes, since pj Tucker advanced and KD didnítÖ.Iím sure PJ is getting his hall off fame speech ready tonight and they might get traded for each other straight up. So silly.

    Ppl said Jordan's legacy was destroyed when he missed all those big shots in the early days. You probably don't remember.

    Lebron's legacy was destroyed too after he teamed up with Wade and Dirk beat him.

    It's not about one game or one series it's about the collection of your career.

    When all is said and done, a guy who averaged 20 ppg is never going to be remember as someone who averaged 28 for his career. No one will agree with you, no matter how far you travel on this earth. Sorry.

    vitter all sports are a game of inches. Its the difference from greatness. What if ray allen doesnt hit the 3 against the spurs. Then Lebron doesnt win a championship. I can mention a million other moments. KD dribbled within the line, his fault for taking it there.

    Middelton with some serious value on the floor this series.

    Can't be denied.

    Durant with the ultimate value on the floor this series.

    Whether he moves on or not. That's just silly to blame any win loss ever on a player. We all know there are larger factors at play.

    Durant proved his point, got the job done for the doubters, again. He's a professional, he knows where his toes are, guys.

    He's Kevin Durant.

    Everyone pumping their chest who had bucks lol. The same ones who took bucks before the series started when irving and harden were in. Funny thing is, those ppl still beleive they'd win their series bet if those two played

    Vitterd you can't argue with ppl like that, just gotta move on.
    Lol. Itís a weird crew in here. Guy plays 53 mins. A true warrior. Hits an incredible shot to send to OT, scores 48 and guys in here saying his legacy is done because his last shot was missed.

    That series would have been 4-1 nets if Kyrie doesnít get hurt. Not even competitive and guys acting like they handicapped a KD collapse. Too funnyÖ..some classics at this place.

    Lol. Just trying to create space for a shot. For anyone to put this loss on KD is insaneÖ.like OJ is innocent insane.

    Sure, but ppl taking the bucks before the series never said "I'm taking the bucks because I think the big 3 will get injured." They said "I'm taking the bucks because they're the better team." Well that was the wrong read in that case. Anyway I'm done with this conversation lol. Looking at tomorrow's lines now.
