    Definitely. They have better ball movement and better play execution without KD.

    KD must leave. Why? It is plain and simple. Draymond was right when he insulted KD because warriors can beat anybody and Durant and OKC were the last team that the warriors beat before they lost to the Cavs in 2015. During that time they needed him and even coach Kerr admitted that it is hard to pass lebron without KD. And to prove that why not google "hampton 5". That curry, draymond himself, iguodala and klay begging KD in hampton and even immediatelt after they lost in 2015. In other words they just used him and draymond wanted the old warriors to be recognized separately and KD as just a passerby in their team. So if KD wanted to prove himself he should fight against this warriors and carry another team to a championship. Whp is the greatest? The greatest is the one who beats the unbeatable. No one had beaten phil jackson and jordan in finals. Warriors and kobe were beaten so they are not the greatest. KD should prove that as well especially against draymond. But KD is a coward and maybe he will let draymond proves that he is just a loser without them. And that is KD's legacy. A coward loser

    I keep saying this, his scoring ability is crazy but it’s iso ball. Gsw has proven to have the better offense than him back in 2016. His most valuable asset to the team is his ability to guard player like giannis and lebron - shutting them down

    Yes on offense, no on defense. Trade Durant for two excellent role players who can defend inside and rebound. Agree?

    Not really, The clever kerr knows. is it real that durant hurts during game 5, maybe not but not badly, the coaching staff Save durant ang cousins against the big blazer due to unmatch situation against the dwarf but articulated rooster of rocket. They pick the boring scorer but wise defender like looney or jordan bell to control the high octane style of de anthoni.

      @curtis burr u mean the year that lebron cried for mercy , begged his daddy Adam silver to suspense draymond for a game so cavs have some hope. Hows the 3 championships where lebron got smoked and warriors ran his ass off the court. Cavs not even in the same league as golden state.

    Durant's the turbocharger/supercharger. He gives them the extra firepower whenever needed. But the Warriors' engine is already good. I'd say it complements with the turbo in the playoffs. Wherein all teams are in the next level to win a championship.

    No it’s not. There I saved everyone 9 minutes. Regular season it could be better possible. But not in the playoffs where defenses are 100x better. When their halfcourt actions get shutdown who they dump the ball to Iguodala?

    Without KD, they play at their best with more off-ball movements. You can see the rotation being portrayed. When it comes to crunch times and crucial games, KD is an asset.

    warriors have lost 22 games and the season is still going, that's why people think KD is not that good, warrios might end up with 57-25, the worst record since 2015. i don't know what's wrong with warroirs, either they didn't play their best or other teams are evolving... are warrios gonna win 2018-2019 title??? i doubt....

    Yes I've been saying this shit. KD ruins their quick pace playstyle that leaves the opposing team with no breathing room with his stupid iso. He scores empty points that's it.

    A 50 win GSW team with KD in it winning it every time. Statistics have their limitations.
