Plenty of people, including me, said shit...it was just ignored because of everyone focuses on the flaws of Russ's game rather than the fact that he's been a great player for a long time...until now...his shot is broken in a way that has made him a demonstrably worse player.
But from like 11 through 17 or 18? Dude was a complete stud. Again,not perfect, but a true superstar.
And, yea, Durant had plenty of help in OKC and just couldn't handle the pressure of being a franchise player. This isn't even an opinion. Durant himself said he just wanted to go somewhere and "ball"...and not have to worry about all the other stuff.
But for some reason people on here love to hate on Curry and Russ...and prop up Durant.
Imagine, again...actually imagine if the Warriors were 30-1 without Curry and just went off on what essentially amounts to a 6-0 playoff run without him to make the finals easily. Imagine the hate he'd get...
Not sure why, but it is a huge double standard.
Even the Kblaze post yesterday...I don't know his full take, but it seemed like he was arguing that Curry isn't on the level of a lot of the guys he listed...Durant was on the list. Again, not sure what his take is...but it seems a lot of people here and in the basketball world just want to act like KD is clearly better. And I think that is straight up non-sense....not a stupid opinion to say KD is better...I disagree, but not stupid. Absolutely stupid to act like they are on different tiers though.
