I don't recall his attitude being an issue in New Orleans either
So the Cleveland Crapaliers are 5-19 right now. I was really hoping they would have gone 2-80.
Interesting comments from Ric Bucher (the guy who wrote the "Why doesn't anyone want to play with Lebron article):
He said that what everyone is taking away from the article isn't what KD was saying.
On The Dan Patrick Show he said: KD was talking about the media fanboys etc. creating the toxic environment around Lebron, not Lebron himself. In fact, he noted that KD specifically said "It's not Lebron's fault at all" but that no one is quoting that.
He also said that KD could still actually go to the Lakers, but won't. He said that the reason he won't isn't because of the reasons he talked about.
He said it would be because he doesn't feel like he's getting the credit he deserves for the titles with the Warriors. So he'll want to go someplace where he will get the credit for any titles won and that wouldn't happen with Lebron.
Look at the talent on the Lakers and the other 2 teams.....
Where would the Lakers be without him? 33-35 wins?
It's not about the best player, people always get that twisted with who is the most valuable to their team.....
However, is he going to go somewhere with no other superstars? Guaranteed way to not win any more titles.
Remind me of the warriors record with curry again and the bucks definitely wouldn't be a good team without Giannis
I was referring to how Westbrook kept repeatedly getting the ball to the hot hand. The Thunder had just had one of their best games of the year blowing out the Pistons on the road. The Nets had lost 7 in a row and came to play, just the stuff that happens in the NBA.
5-6 in 11 games. Limited sample size. Over an 82 game season? The W's would still be a playoff team without Curry, they have too much talent not to be.
The Bucks would still have Middleton, Bledsoe (who has turned things around), Brogdon, and Lopez. They aren't devoid of talent. Plus, they play in the EC.
True. But I think he believes that if he teamed up with a Kawhi, or Butler or someone like that, he will get most of the credit.
Lebron is still the best player in the game, so no one is getting credit over him.
Middleton and Bledsoe are not top guys.
Bucks would struggle to win 35 games without Giannis.
Bucks weren't projected to be a top 2 or 3 team in the East.
If they finish with 50+ wins and a top 3 team in the East then he will be your MVP.
Not in the EC, no way. Not when Charlotte and Washington are currently fighting for the 8 seed. The Bucks would still be in contention for a playoff spot.
The W's would still make the playoffs.
The Lakers would not in the stacked WC.
As bad as the Heat are, they are still just 1.5 games out of the playoff hunt as of today.
He wants to win a title and get more credit for doing so? KD to the Kings 2019.
At least I dont have to talk through my vagina like you
FUCK THE SPURS. Time for Popovivh to retire
Would be funny if he doesn't even give LA a second thought next year...and would serve them right.
And yet, here they are in 5th place thus far. Maybe they actually could've afforded the risk while Cousins recovered?? Now, there's a possibility Cousins won't give them the time of day once he's healthy since they weren't willing to take a chance on him. If any player thinks like that I would have to guess it would be Cousins.
Is he any good as a #1 by himself? No.
