    Default Curry won with Wiggins as 2nd best player

    Could Lebron or KD ever win with Wiggins as their 2nd best player? Just something to consider. Lebron had Wade, Irving and Anthony Davis. I donít know if Lebron would win 50 percent of his regular season games at this point with Wiggins as his 2nd best player.

    This is something that should be looked at. Klay was only 60 percent. Why is it that Lebron and KD always need big names?

    They were much deeper than just Wiggins. Stop it. Yes, Bron has two HOF perennial stars by his side for 3 of his rings and AD a superstar caliber player and superior player for the meaningless Mickey Mouse bubble chip. But this years Warriors had great depth.

    Lebron had more help than any "great" in the history of the sport.

    Curry just won with the least amount of help since Dirk in 2011.

    GM's love to build teams with cheap defenders and secondary producers like Wiggins, but this requires a 1st option that can carry the scoring load.

    Unfortunately, ball-dominators can't carry the scoring load against top teams (too ball-dominant) and therefore need all-time scoring help like Kareem, AD, or Wade - they can't win with secondary producers like Wiggins or Pippen that require a 1st option to carry the scoring load.

    Klay was the second best player on the Warriors. Wiggins was third.

    I would've liked to see Curry go against these Celtics with Klay playing only game one in the finals and Wiggins not playing at all in the finals.

    Curry averaged 10 ppg more than Klay for the 2015 playoffs and Finals, so Curry won while defeating maximum defensive attention (carrying scoring load for playoffs and Finals).

    The reason Curry can defeat maximum defensive attention and Lebron cannot is due to brand of ball and jumpshooting skill - Lebron can't carry the scoring load against top teams (too ball-dominant) and therefore need all-time scoring help like AD, Wade or Kyrie, while expert jumpshooters like Curry or MJ maintain brand at high volumes, so they can win with less help like Wiggins or Pippen.

    Carry on

    Winning with an all-star (Wiggins) + an all-defensive team member (Draymond) + another 20 ppg scorer (Klay) + another 18 ppg scorer (Poole) is frankly one of the stronger supporting casts this century.
    We've all seen how he did as soon as ONE of these components (Klay) was missing in 2020-21.
    Now, beating a 73-9 team with 0 all-stars, 0 all-NBA members, 0 all-defensive team members, 0 players with any individual awards or honors of any kind will never get duplicated again.
    Curry's supporting cast won twice as many games without him in the 18 games he missed last season as LeBron's supporting cast won without him in the 27 games he missed between 2014-2018.

    Hmmmm


    Nah I would say dray was the 2nd best player. Wiggins was 3rd though. Then looney and poole fighting for 4th and 5th.

    Now in the finals Wiggins was the 2nd best player and Klay was 3rd

    If you replace Curry with Lebron on Golden State, they still win. Curry isn’t the player Lebron is, and that’s just facts.
