I feel the same except I see mid-range as from 12-17ft. Anything past 17ft to the 3pt line should be considered a long 2.

- are either with an agenda (you)
- Lebron fans (the other people arguing here)
- a mouth breathing moron

That would have been a 6-7 game series that might have swung either way. KD instead changed that into a certain victory giving one of the biggest beat downs in NBA finals.
@ Curry being "limped and half working" in 2016.

Dude..... in game 4 he played nearly 40mins and put up 38-5 and 6 while taking 25FGA.

If you had someone watch that game for the first time and tell them to pick out the player who's been hobbled for the entire series and only playing to half of their capacity...... they sure as f*ck wouldn't pick Curry.

Was he 100%, no. Was he only 50%... hell no.

Same could be said for the Cavs. Outside LeBron and Irving, the rest of the team was nothing special. In fact, they were atrocious.


Much better with KD.


Never said that the Warriors without KD aren't a good team. That would be retarded. Just saying that if they lost KD last season, the Cavs would've beat them in 6 max.


Of course they are better with KD. Nah, we don't know what would have happened. It is easy to forget just how great they were without him.

KD is the best player in the world and it's not close.

LeTards trying to muddy the waters is as expected as their everyday bitching of Lebron needing more help.

If you're actually bringing up Rondo to support your argument in '18, about a series in '17, then you're officially an idiot. The Bulls were never beating the Celtics. The Bulls were terrible and they had no chance.

The Cavs were worse defensively marginally and the numbers back that up. They were literally the same team defensively in the PO's as they were the previous season.

Also, the Cavs were a beat offensive team. So, yeah.

My point was this would be a tough 6-7 game series otherwise, and KD changed it into a 4-1 beatdown of painful proportions. It should have been 4-0, but Cavs had the goat shooting night in fear of getting humiliated 4-0 and losing the chip at home again by the same team.
Let me make it simple for you.

1. The Warriors scored 122 a game in the Finals.
2. KD averaged 35 of those points on 70% TS.
3. The Cavs' defense was stretched too thin, trying to guard 4 All-Stars, 4 All-NBA players, and 2 MVP's.
4. Decrease that number by 25% (the All-Stars, All-NBA, and MVP's), and the Cav's have a lighter efensive loas.
5. The Warriors should be thanking every single god ever that Kyrie got hurt in '15 and KD signed in '17.
6. Without KD, the Warriors would've lost in 6 at the MOST.

Literally no one does. The Cavs beat them.
