He has had the worst shooting year of his career because he's always out of rhythm as the third option. When he's, at worst, the second option or Steph is benched, he becomes the lethal assassin we've all watched over the years. Stephen A said the Warriors have been advised by multiple officials, even those from different teams, to keep the Splash Brothers together and treat KD as a lost cause.
The team were too reliant on KD's iso brilliance somehow means KD makes the team worse? Klay was the one that said KD is their best player. When has him been visibly unhappy due to KD being on the same team? He has always been streaky during the start of seasons. Maybe he has been worse off this year due to a 4 year runs to the finals instead of being out of rhythm? Klay always get his shots at the start of the fourth anyway. And when he gets hot, KD defers to him too. You can make a better case that KD slows the game down for GSW affecting Klay rather than being the third option behind KD and Steph because Klay gets his shots either way.

What Draymond is saying their floor is higher with KD on the team. This Portland series showed exactly that. The bench had to shoot lights out even against a Portland team with poor guard defence for them to grind out 2 of the 3 wins. It isn't sustainable.

When he's hitting shots, the offense runs smoother and morale is increased. When he's out or off, the Warriors struggle. This isn't up for debate. You can't look at now 30-1 and simply say "Nope." because you don't like Skip Bayless. The messenger doesn't make a fact untrue.
You staning for Stephen A is funny. I denounce the hot take that the Warriors are better off without KD. I simply used two of the most high profile hot take artists in the NBA as my example.

I just hope all this leads to KD leaving.

Re: NBA Draft Lottery, Final Four-Palooza

As if KD wants to play with Westbrick again LUL

Also if KD wants to be the star player of a team, I don't understand him going to NY where the rumours are of another super team with him, Kyrie, and AD? Anyways, those are purely rumours, I don't see that team forming.

Imagine Drake convincing KD to come to the Raptors.

30-1 is not sustainable guys. The Warriors' 50% win record without Steph proves KD is more important. Wait, what?

You have nailed it!

Also: that BLOCK on Evan Turner following Turner's steal from late in the fourth quarter!

Sad to see the Trail Blazers, who have been such splendid overachievers and a Cinderella team in this playoffs tournament, ostensibly find themselves spiritually defeated. Almost felt bad for them.
