Agree to Disagree. KD is the biggest focus and the biggest draw, for now anyway.
Westbrook isn't better than Curry, lol.
There is an argument to be made.
I don't think there is. Curry is better at scoring, shooting, and defense at the least.
Curry defense lol. The same guy that got washed by Delly?
Like not needing 2 other top 20 players to win everything.
Westbrook and defense don't even belong in the same sentence.
Using someone having a good team around them as an argument against them is hilarious. There's a reason he was b2b MVP, once unanimous. And Westbrook doesn't need other top 20 players to win everything? What the hell has he won? Lmfao
It's obvious you have an agenda, as usual.
Westbrook couldn't win with Durant and Harden...
As a pure 1-on-1 defender I will take Westbrook over Curry any day of the week. However, in a system Curry is a very, very smart player who rarely misses assignments and reads the play very well. His defence, while not spectacular, is underrated.
Both Curry and Westbrook are bad defenders. Human turnstiles.
Westbrook didn't even bother to close out on any shooters last year so he could grab his defensive rebounds
Maybe because they faced basically a better version of themselves (at the time). That OKC team wasn't built for the finals either, this is coming from a Thunder fan.
Sad part is that Westbrook has the tools to be an excellent defender. He just chooses not to defend. Curry at times looks totally disinterested in D but his problem also is that he's undersized.
In 2015 who were those two players?
Okay and I would argue for dray.
Still wondering what Westbrook won without two top 20 players beside him lol
Wades starting over JR Smith, ahhh the power of coach LeBron. Really thought Smith would start given hes better on defence and a better three point shooter.
Cavs are going with a small ball lineup it seems, Love-Crowder (PF)-LeBron-Wade-Rose/IT
Curry at PG, is anything but undersized.
joel embiid sure talks a lot for a guy who's spent almost all of 3 years injured on the bench
Meh, it's fun.
I prefer Curry to Durant, myself. Both are solid players though.
At first it was cute/funny but now its just annoying. Dude has 31 NBA games to his name. Play at least a full season before you start throwing out jabs.
Lol what's annoying about a little trash talk? He's not talking **** to you
Finally someone who's not banana boat mentality. Bring back the 80s where everyone hated everyone.
I think people are overreacting a bit here. Embiid and Whiteside had some "friendly" trash talking going on during the game and it carried over to twitter. All in fun. I doubt that Embiid hates anyone.
It made me so sad when Wall mentioned IT and Kyrie as some of his closest friends on a podcast a couple of days ago.
