    Oh and both of them in the Great Dantoni’s offense?

    Needless to say he’s probably fired if they don’t at least go 7 games in the WCF..

    Well it’s definitely a better combo than Harden/CP3 and they had GSW on the ropes.

    It sounds good and all. I just cant see them being able to compliment each other. There will be major growing pains

    They’ve been to the Finals together before lol and have gone on to become even better players...not wanting them to succeed is one thing but you’re sort of defying logic here dude.

    So what? They were young and completely different players yet. Neither of them were MVP caliber then.

    Now one is a ball dominate trip Dub machine and the other is a ball dominate ISO expert. They both require the ball now. They will both have to make adjustments. Theres only 1 ball. Idk what's so hard to understand about that.

    You’re not ball dominant when you average a triple double for a season.

    Why won’t Durant work with Kyrie if that’s the case? Durant ranked 8th in attempts and Kyrie 14th.

    George and Kawhi won’t be “great” either because George ranks 2nd in attempts and Kawhi 6th.

    What?!!! Avg a trip Dub literally means it goes through you all season.

    Attempts isnt the whole story. I'm looking at how their styles of play can compliment each other. Kyrie and Durant have very different games

    I completely disagree. It shows you are a well rounded player, who sets others up to score as well.

    You can attempt to redefine it because you clearly don’t like these two players but, of course, I’m not buying that description of a triple double at all lol

    You can be well rounded and ball dominate. How do you think he sets players up... by having the ball and making plays

    And you dont know what you're talking about. I fucking love Westbrook. Been wanting him in LA for years

    That's about it. Big plus over Cp3

    More telling is the usage rate. Both of them were top 10 last year.

    It will definitely be interesting to see how these guys mesh after flourishing (individually) without Durant. Here's the thing: They want to play together. Which means they are prepared for whatever sacrifices they'll need to make. They've done it before.

    I'm expecting them to be pretty damn good.
