    For me they dont need durant because warriors can play like 2015-16 season and to have a long time ti curry handled the ball


    They are just worse with KD overall

    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?

    HELL TO THE NAW NAW NAW!!! Did you see that work of art against the Grizzlies? 😔💖💖💖. I like to add that though the Warriors won the chip without KD, they've also lost the chip without KD, but NEVER lost the chip WITH KD. #BPOTP aka BEST PLAYER ON THE PLANET #SLIMREAPER

    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.

    KD completes the team and is impact is more seen in the playoffs when defenses are locked in

    I still believe that Curry is the main factor for the Warriors .on tonight game vs Dallas K.D.was lost from the begin of the game .Dallas just embarrass the Warriors . KD needs the Warriors and not the other way around .

    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....

  • Killer Queen has already touched that steel beam.

    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.

    about dang time someone realizes how overrated KD is. His first game back we lost. Spurs would have tasted some 40 point game from Curry if it wasn't for Durant.

  • Peter Mwaura
    Peter Mwaura 28 days ago

    This is damb.. GSW had a 73 win season with the best offense in the league without KD but couldnt win everything in the end.
    A 50 win GSW team with KD in it winning it every time. Statistics have their limitations.

    Motion both with the ball and off-ball is what made the 2014-2016 warriors offense so good. When they added KD they got lazy off the ball and started running more iso and passed far less.

    AbsoluteXero 28 days ago

    The difference that some ppl dont realize is that KD is clutch when games are tight. He is highly efficient and accurate. Playoffs are a different animal because of how aggressive players get, and Curry gets bullied, and even Klay. KD though is consistently delivering, and he's a better defender than Curry.

    Simply put, Steph raises KD’s ceiling and full potential while KD lowers Steph’s ceiling. They’re both top 5 players but I think a full season without Durant and the offense running fully through him again, Curry reclaims the best player in the world title
