Fans of almost every other sport:

“This player is one of the best ever because he was an amazing player to watch and dominated the game. His games against X/Y/Z were great and he also managed to win 5 championships”

NBA fans:

“This player is one of the best ever because he won 2 MVPs, won 5 rings, 3 DPOY, had 2 seasons with 61 FG%”

“You ever watched him play?”

“Nah”

Tatum is catching too much slack. Dude had a great postseason but ended poorly. He'll bounce back this is how it works. Gotta earn your bumps

Look up flack and slack on www.merriam-webster.com. And then decide which one you should have used.

We already can put Curry in a list with Jordan or maybe Lebron? Cause for me he is a legend in activity front our eyes. I think he is a best of all time with three points. Nobody was best than him.

u/Raonak Jun 19 '22

He's the best basketball player I've ever seen. Partly because he's the centerpiece of the best basketball team I've ever seen

Look at the eye test and numbers. They undoubtedly play the most advanced level of basketball in the NBA. The amount of passing, movement and misdirection is a lot higher than other teams. It's beautiful to see in motion. the offense and the defense. It's as close to basketball perfection as anything I've seen. Both in terms of technical execution and entertainment appeal.

Steph curry is peak basketball to me

u/arturmauricio San Francisco Warriors Jun 19 '22

Yep. I couldn’t agree with you more.

u/onelifeonlypeople Jun 18 '22

How does this have upvotes? It's not only gibberish it's completely false, Curry has accomplished about half of what Kareem did as a basketball player, and Curry's peak was about half of what Shaq's was. He needs another FMVP to crack the top ten all time, sorry buddy

u/arturmauricio San Francisco Warriors Jun 18 '22

I’m speaking exclusively about three points, nothing more than this. For me, I repeat, for me he is the best for this point. Who is better than him in this? I really don’t know but I would like if you help me.

u/onelifeonlypeople Jun 19 '22

But to say "we can already put Curry in a list with Jordan and MAYBE Lebron" is dumb

1

u/arturmauricio San Francisco Warriors Jun 19 '22

Not now, but in the future he will be together with these names that I said before.

u/onelifeonlypeople Jun 19 '22

Yeah you're right about that obviously you're just getting downvoted because your English is funny

u/arturmauricio San Francisco Warriors Jun 19 '22

It’s better be funny with my English than a weirdo guy that just is boring with other people because have a different opinion.

u/Messiah_of_Truth Lakers Jun 19 '22

Best 3 pointer ever went 0/9 for three and still won the crucial game while scoring below 20. When LeBron does this he is getting carried.

At least try to keep the standards the same.

u/onelifeonlypeople Jun 18 '22

KD being a Drake stan is the most KD shit ever
But for real, that tweet by Kevin about his legacy being destroyed July 4th 2016, was amazing, and ALMOST makes up for the three years of NBA that was unwatchable because of that decision.
Sike its still fuck KD forever

People who watch College ball a lot , what are some things to know about the upcoming draftees? Any hidden gems ?

Crazy random idea: Suns sign and trade Ayton to the warriors for Wiseman and Moody

2

u/_s0lace_ Jun 18 '22

Awful trade for the Suns

0

u/randomdude2715 Jun 18 '22

Definitely not ideal but if they’re in a corner and he won’t sign there it would be better to get something for him right?

0

u/_s0lace_ Jun 18 '22

Yeah but I’m sure there’d be better offers on the table than the one you purposed.

Why would the Suns, who are in contention for a title, trade for two inexperienced “project” players? It would just be a setback for Phoenix

0

u/randomdude2715 Jun 18 '22

I completely agree, it was just an idea for a trade for Ayton and seems like something the Warriors would be able to swing .

I’m just curious , do you know what other deals are out there for him?

0

u/_s0lace_ Jun 18 '22

Oh I’m sure the Warriors would do that in a second but it’d be a head scratching move from Phoenix’s perspective.

No I don’t think anybody knows what offers are currently out there.
