This will be the BEST 2Nd round of NBA playoffs in the history of the game when you look at it from both sides East and West and the BEST part is people said the warriors broke the NBA....NO the warriors made the NBA the most competitive it's Ever been the warriors created Harden and the Rockets the Warriors made LeBron play so great the east lost so much to him they got better draft picks and when he left how many west stars went to the East? It's all because of the warriors that this happened and I want to thank them for that and if K.D leaves with all the money hes making and the legacy this warriors team has built he's going to no longer be in my All-Time favorites and he's top 5 right now on my all-time starting list but Duncan didn't leave Tony didn't leave Manu and Them boys didn't leave and left a dynasty don't come here to win a couple and leave please KEVIN DURRANT Keep pushing the game and keep this dynasty alive and win 7 rings you become greatness like HIS-AIRNESS Great...Them Lakers built dynasty with Kareem and Magic and them boys y'all need to do the same in the Bay...Magic considered the one of if not the greatest PG. Ever Kareen All-Time leading scorer in some pros eyes the greatest player ever James Worthy is a top 5 Small forward All-Time and that's just those 3 those guys stayed together and built the Lakers into THE LAKERS So do the same in the Bay cement your legacy fam You Steph Klay Draymond and Boogie can be the greatest dynasty since the Lakers and Create better players by people wanting to beat you just like how MJ became who he is cuz he wanted to win and them champions drove him to that

If KD doesn't do well and takes a night off then the Warriors still have a good shot at winning a game. If Lebron or Kawhi or even a guy like Derozan takes a night off, their team has no shot at winning the game. That's the difference.

The media is about to make KD drop 50 on the clippers
If it's in the Word Then it's in the word
I can't believe these guys and how they flip flop so much. You know good and well that KD is going to single-handedly destroy these clippers. Every time the lawyers lose one game in the playoff they act like they're going to lose the series or not make it to the finals oh, this happens every year and what has been the results? Warriors championship

Why doesn’t KD get nearly the scrutiny Lebron gets if y’all want him to be the next greatest. Imagine if that was lbj putting up the performance KD put up in game 2. But if KD does end up putting up a 35 pt performance sooner or later everyone’s gonna say he’s the goat. What about all the games when he’s not the best player on the court. Lebron’s never allowed to have those type of games but when KD has it no one bats an eye.
Roc420 Mr. Slowboogy
Kerr get too much credit. It shows how good he is when you allow your king of all king teams to lose after being up 30. When the team is full of allstars...exactly how good do the coach have to be??..

I wonder if KD is setting up his exit strategy from GS. Let's remember, some say he did the same thing a few years ago when the Thunder lost the 3-1 lead they had on GS. If the Thunder had won that series then it would have made it harder for Durant to leave OKC.

I have never been a KD fan EVEN when he was with OKC. Having said that, I am glad I am not a professional player of his caliber bc these sports analysts are confidence busters. The noise they generate about shyt they will NEVER KNOW ABOUTOR DO in their LIFETIMES is ridiculous. And this is why I sometimes watch the game with the volume muted. And strangely enough, so does my dad. Sometimes. listening to these MOFOs is TOOOOO much and it ruins the game for me. Especially ANY game with Chris Webber, UGGGHHH.

He started that crap at the end of the regular season now it Carrie's over into the post season. Why? He was paid off. It costs something and if he does not want to pay. It end up being what we see. If they win another ring remains to be seen.

I'm a diehard Lakers fan outside of Kobe KD has always my 2nd favorite player. Max is giving him a complete pass here?. KD is arguably the best player in the world. It's unacceptable the way he's played??. Patrick Beverly is a great defender no doubt about that. But there's no way in hell he should be able to do anything with KD??.. MJ Kobe even Lebron would have destroyed Patrick Beverly Doc would have been known that was not a smart coaching decision.

I don’t like how everybody is just counting out the Celtics like they won’t make the finals, the only reason they didn’t make it last year was because LeBron James Smacked That Ass, and now he gone, The only team that I feel like the Celtics Can’t Beat Are The Warriors And Toronto, Toronto Because Kwahi Might Be Too Much Of A Problem On Both Sides Of The Court.Kyrie Would Have To Put The Team On His Back For About Two Games

It's pretty simple. This is a combination of players just straight up bricking and slacking on d. Then you have steve Kerr. Low key his fault as well. Just like any coach. When you have that many all-stars. You're up 31. You rest your all-stars. You throw in some 2nd unit shit to develop them as you go along in the playoffs. You can tell after cousins is injured...kerr tried a few newer lineups. It all made sense until the fucking clippers were within 13 points. How the fuck do you not throw back in your line up and make sure KD gets in his 18 shots. What the FUCK is that shit? You're a great coach. You took them out at the right time but your team couldn't hold the lead so now lets get serious... So now you get serious with KD in and you want to FUCK around with a 4 foul KD while KD is playing DEFENSE? IF KD is in there with 4 fouls in the 4th quarter. Use him for what he fucking is. An ISO FUCKING GOD. Stop that fucking nonsense and force his ass to get the last 15 fucking points. You tell him to go do it in the final how many minutes and he gets fouled out cause of offensive fouls? Ok fuck heads. No curry and the line up when you see your lead slipping away. No KD offensive iso game when you DECIDE not to throw curry in? Yo curry runs that fucking offensive you FUCK nut. KD ISO his ways to wins you FUCK nut. If you don't rely on that and HAVE BAD DEFENSE GOING ON. Why the FUCK would you play spurs ball? Since the FUCK when did spurs ball helped the warriors when they have curry and kd? What the FUCK? lololol You rest curry so he doesnt have to play more minutes but then now you're giving up a game so that 7 minutes you saved curry ended up fucking being A WHOLE FUCKING GAME. Holy fuck. Like i said. Low key super bad coaching. lmfao Give me that 31 lead and i can assure you i'd coach the warriors into that win. There is no fucking way. Kerr just relied on his fucking luck. No respect and you have lou williams coming off the bench for the clippers who can smash any teams defense if he's on fire. If lou is on fire. There is no fucking defense stopping him. No one to guard his ass cause he's like kyrie. He throws up shots. Not consisent but when it is....look what fucking happens. What the fuck steve kerr lol anyways fuck the warriors. This loss is embarrassing. fuck the warriors. Sry cousins i hope you recover and become better then ever but fuck the warriors.

If KD steps up to push champion for Warriors, he would definitely take "Best player" title from LeBron. Max got his points, Boogie has minimal impact to Warriors. Boogie didn't come to season games until early this year. The core in Warriors is indeed composed of Green, Iggy, Curry, Thompson, and Livingston. KD is just layer guarantee to Warriors. This playoffs will be very interesting. Keep watching this drama.
