    But that doesn't fit with Pops quote. If his quote was accurate then you wouldn't have to keep coming up with excuses.

    Only 24 of their 110 points came from 3s last game and they still won.

    Curry and Klay actually move without the ball. If they pass the ball, they immediately start running trying to get open.

    Who else on their team is a threat from 3?

    Iggy 33%
    Green 28.5%
    Bogut
    Looney
    Livingston
    Bell

    Those are the guys playing the most minutes.

    GSW has the best 3-pt shooters ever (curry/klay) - the threat of the best 3-pt shooters drives their offense and opens up OTHER things for them

    So Houston lost by having to defend the Warriors' goat three-point threats, and gave up other stuff as a result

    But in addition to giving up things to defend GSW's threes, Houston also lost because they play a shit brand where one guy holds the ball for 10 minutes a game, literally... and they're last in team assists

    So there's always exceptions, but the rule is clear:

    Today's game is a 3-pt contest where the best 3-pt shooters will win - that's the Warriors, even though other teams have better actual basketball players

    Amazing.

    This thread should open peoples eyes...

    This team is an awful, awful shooting team outside of Chef and klay.

    Horrible.

    And every team they have beaten.. has made MORE 3's than they have.

    Even if the Warriors spammed threes (they dont - and compared to the Rockets they sure as hell DONT) at least they have the personnel who can shoot.

    Other teams trying to BE THEM? That's the problem.

    The 3PT shot has been around since 19-fukking-80. Hating on Golden State simply because they're better at shooting them...is pure idiocy.

    Curry, Wilt, and Shaq

    Most impactful players of all time

    If their 3-pt prowess is the only reason they're the best, then it isn't "hate" because they aren't actually great at basketball, only threes

    And that's Popovich's and my point - today's game is a 3-pt contest where the best 3-pt shooters will win - that's the Warriors, even though other teams have better actual basketball players

    The team that scores more point will win.

    But what if there was no such thing as a home run in baseball?

    The fact that Klay/Steph move without the ball is what puts pressure on the defense. If they were just stationary spot up shooters then GS would be sitting at home.

    Most of their current roster sucks at 3s or doesn't take them at all.

    You are just a desperate Jordan ******ger desperately trying to discredit a dynasty.

    '3 point shooting is all that matters.... as long as they don't play iso ball....as long as they are all time greats moving without the ball.... as long as it's a full moon on Tuesday....'

    Curry and klay are very good at other parts of the game. Klay plays stout defense and has a very nice post and pull up midrange game. Curry is a fantastic passer(easily above average among great volume scorers) and has great touch around the rim with finishes and floaters. You

    Its been around since before you started watching basketball, so who cares?

    Your premise is dumb and all you're doing here is throwing shade. Plain and simple.

    [COLOR="Navy"]So my point is that[/COLOR] GSW is #1 because they have the best 3-point shooters, not the best basketball players

    Curry is just a system player that is lucky his 3-pt prowess happens to coincide with a 3-pt contest league..

    without the 3-pt line, the former Davidson star wouldn't be a prospect, let alone an NBA player.. he only became a prospect when the 3-pt shot became popular
    Curry is just a system player. i agree.
    every great system needs great players /bulls/lakeshow/spurs.. you agree?

    you think curry is not great. i respect that and im sure one day (soon) you'll change your mind

    Exactly - defending their goat 3-point threat opens up other things in the Warriors' offense

    It seems like we agree

    Today's game is a 3-pt contest where the best 3-pt shooters will win - that's the Warriors, even though other teams have better actual basketball players

    Btw, this isn't my opinion.. it's Popovich's

    When a player runs off screens, they have to stop to catch-and-shoot the ball

    Catch-and-shoots are stationary shots (usually after a lot of movement off screens)

    For the record Curry is 86-91 from the foul line in the playoffs (94.5%) but those points don't really count.

    MJ dropped 37 a game without a system

    He wasn't a system player but was skilled enough to fit goat scoring levels into a system so teammates could play to capacity

    Curry's situation is different - he's lucky his 3-pt prowess happened to coincide with a 3-pt contest league..

    without the 3-pt line, the former Davidson star wouldn't be a prospect, let alone an NBA player.. he only became a prospect when the 3-pt shot became popular
