Default GSW is #1 due to the best 3-pt shooters - don't act like they're the best ballplayers

How does the goat shooter get open for 80% of his threes?.. he's just a system player; so is Klay - they benefit from today's spacing strategy where 89% of threes are "open" or "wide open", according to NBA.com...

And the team with the best 3-point shooters wins, which is golden state..

Again, he's just a system player whose great 3-point prowess benefits from the current NBA format.. he's not actually a great baller.. take away the 3-pt line and he wouldn't make the NBA - he was barely a prospect at all until 3-pointers became popular - facts.. #davidsonstar

Is the three point shot part of an NBA basketball game?

Oh, what's that? It is? Oh, ok. So it's not irrelevant. They're the best basketball team when healthy. If a player could shoot 100% on dunks only, and 0% from everywhere else, and he was able to put himself in position to get dunks 95% of the time or some other ridiculously high number, he would be the best player in basketball. "How" someone achieves this is entirely different from the end result. The end result is all that matters.

As far as how Curry gets open, it's like you don't watch any of the games. He gets open because he doesn't stop moving and he knows how to get open and he knows how to use screens and his release is probably the quickest in NBA history.

They might just win it all even if they're not healthy, but they'll only lose to another wonderful three point shooting team.

Your troll account is so, so bad, and I feel sorry for the people that take you seriously.

Your takeaway from GS winning without Durant...is this?

I get what you're saying but peeps who appreciate good basketball? They fukk with the KD-less Warrior team.

Live in the moment for a bit. Appreciate what we're seeing NOW - the GOAT shooting backcourt.

He doesn't watch basketball. This is some idiot that stopped watching in the 2000s but still comes to talk in a website about basketball for what they're doing in this generation. If there was ever a good example of somebody with no life and nothing to do, it would be 2ball.

He does watch basketball. It's not who you think it is.

It's a troll account. Who the main is? Or was? I don't know. But it's a gimmick.

The 3pt line has existed for all of the modern era...

So this innovation cant be anything other than marveled at.

Plus we know Curry is a better off ball route runner than Jordan, and his teams play with better teamwork than Jordan's did.

GOAT shit.

They're nowhere near the goat backcourt - anyone who thinks that is overvaluing the ability to make open threes

the NBA has settled on spacing strategy that allows 89% of threes to be open or wide open - how can you respect that format and skillset?..

It's not basketball.. it just isn't.. stand-still open shots aren't basketball, or omits most of basketball

Shooting backcourt.

But its becoming apparent you really don't like basketball.

"Not Basketball"? I'm on your side with regards to Jordan. Right now you sound goofy as fuck though.

if previous eras had figured out today's spacing strategy and shot mostly threes skillset - then those players would suck too

Today's game is based on open threes, which isn't basketball - 89% of threes are open or wide open

Curry and Klay benefit from that.. plain and simple.. and that's the only reason GSW is #1 - they have the best 3-pt shooters

don't respect anyone that wouldn't make the NBA without the 3-point line.. curry was barely a D1 player until threes got popular

It is true Curry would not be an all time great without a three point line. He'd still be good, just not all time great good.

But Klay would be a great NBA player in any era because of his defense.

That line about Jordan only dominating the 90's was due to him being the best contested mid range shooter reallly struck a nerve with ya huh Bruce?

ya boy was a product of a weaker era + the triangle

deal with it

Today's game isn't basketball!!!! It's just open threes!!! the smartest guy in today's game agrees with me, not you!!!








Today's game is literally a 3-pt contest - that..... isn't..... basketball

It is basketball. Getting open threes is part of the game.

Curry gets open because of his quick release and his constant movement and ability to utilize screens. He could do that on literally any team.
