    Default Time for Luka to cut his teeth and learn how to win (brand of ball) - Warriors sweep

    Or gentlemen's sweep

    or 6 games

    regardless, Luka is getting ragdolled by Curry's superior brand of ball..

    that's how basketball WORKS.. enjoy everyone

    Curry ain't a predictable ball-dominator & career loser like CP3, so this series will be different

    5 all stars vs 1

    Currys brand of ball was lottery without klay and Poole being a star.

    He hasn't made the playoffs without klay

    what do you think will be the bigger reason for a hypothetical GSW win

    1) teammates
    2) brand of ball


    basically,

    would GSW also win if Luka and Curry switched teammates?

    Curry literally couldn't even make the playoffs with elite 2 way all star Wiggins scoring nearly 20 a game.

    Luka is in the WCF with 16ppg Brunson as his 2nd option




    Brand of ball doe.

    Curry's brand of ball develops all young talents and therefore turns any roster into a dynasty over time

    The historical record confirms this:

    Heading into the 2015 season, Klay/Dray hadn't been all-stars yet and the Warriors weren't on the contention radar.. The same thing happened heading into this season - Curry developed Poole and turned Wiggins into an all-star.

    So the overriding point is that Luka's simpleton, playground skillset (ball-dominance) makes everyone stand in the corner, which prevents the organic dynasty development that Curry's skillset allows... Luka can't win organically with any roster and will need to either develop an off-ball game or be a talent-based winner/team-hopper like other ball-dominators (Lebron)

    He just beat the 65-win 1 seed with Brunson as his 2nd option

    Curry missed the playoffs with all star Wiggins as his...

    And he will get ragdolled by Curry's superior brand of ball - Curry isn't some career-losing ball-dominator like Cp3

    Curry had to turn Wiggins into an all-star, which Luka can't do - Wiggins would be standing in the corner alongside Luka's beginner skillset and this Warrior team would be nothing

    Again, Curry's skillset will turn any roster into a dynasty over time because he has the best BRAND OF BALL and therefore doesn't need juggernaut TALENT.

    Otoh, ball-dominators like Luka can't develop teammates or have good chemistry, so they can't win organically and are forced to team-hop or collude (talent-based winning.. all-star team strategy)

    I see after LeBron retires we’re going to have to hear OP whine about Luka instead.

    3ball has identified Luka as a threat, hence the sudden obsession. He's pretty much ISHs version of Skip Bayless, making a 'career' out of taking a contrarian position against whoever the 'hot player' is.

    For the record, Luka at 23 in his 4th season has had a better playoff career to this point than MJ. And I say that as a REAL Jordan fan, not a hater like OP masquerading as one.

    you make Curry sounds like a No Value Player, and my girlfriend sounds like the Most Valuable Player

    His real favorite player is Kobe and Luka absolutely is a threat to him lol. He uses Jordan because he’s too scared to compare Kobe’s stats to these guys
