    I can't really decide on how good a move this is.
    On paper, looks great. But the games aren't played on paper, after all, there is but one ball.
    The sooner you fall behind, the more time you'll have to catch up.

    Well, in order to beat them you had better have 3 elite defenders to cover the perimitor....I can't think of anyone.

    Good point. Also, he is a damn good defensive player. If the chemistry works, they will be awesome.

    Even on a two year deal for Durant... their core four Curry 28, Durant 27, Green 26, Thompson 26 are right in their primes... if Durant ends up being a good fit there's no reason that the GSW shouldn't dominate the Western Conference... he's definitely a huge upgrade over Harrison Barnes... though they will also lose Bogut (trade to the Mavs) to make room for Durant's contract.

    Would you trade Barnes and Bogot for KD? Cuss....

    The Mavs certainly won on that deal, 5555

    Plus now Westbrook can lead OKC to an upset over the GSW.... I wonder who they are going to splash Durant money on....

    Think they will take a hit for this season possibly and go hard for local boy Blake Griffin next year, but have seen it mentioned RW might bolt down the track

    Looks like Durant could be done for the rest of the regular season and until the Western Conference finals.... anyone want to crown the Cavs back to back Champions?

    Should be fitting that Bogut wins one with the Cavs, 55555

    So Lebron passed MJ in points scored last night

    And thinking about it, I think you have to say his career is a disappointment

    He has tried to orchestrate so many teams that he has failed so many times

    Instead of just letting things play out, he probably would have 3-4 more championships

    He's an absolute coach killer
    I mean how many coaches has he gotten fired?
    How many moves has he forced the front office to make that failed miserably?
    How many teammates has he thrown under the bus?

    And think of all the times he has choked on the big stage?
    (He's also has come up huge too)

    I obviously don't like the guy but I loved him when he came out
    Hell I dragged Ao to his movie when it came out!
    And his personal life should be viewed as the ultimate role model
    And he is one of the top 5 most talented players ever

    But if you look at it all as a whole

    I think you have to say his career is a failure

    Yes, a coach killer....yes, a type A manipulator and yes he has blown some games.
    But to say his career is a failur?......ludicrous.

    I think what happened in Miami really spoiled him. He got to play with his buddies and win a couple of rings.
    He thought he would be ‘east’ to do it again in LA, but no one is making it easy for him.
    I don’t particularly care for him, but as a player, he is one of the greatest of all time.
    He would destroy MJ in a game of one on one.

    Why is if ludicrous if you look at the whole picture and come up with the fact he probably didn't achieve what he should have?
    Which is obviously an opinion and not a fact, I admit

    And why would him destroying MJ one on one matter at all?(I don't agree either....MJ is never getting destroyed)
    The NBA is not a one on one game

    It is ludicrous because he is one of the greatest players ever. Now, the guys the try out for the NBA, and don’t make it, their career is a failure.....how can you possibly say is career is a failur. Oh, he will probably end up a billionaire due to is ‘filed bb career’.

    I agree he is one of the best players ever

    But he only has 3 rings, 2 he had to go join to other superstars

    Whereas MJ had 6 and Kobe has 5

    And I think it's entirely his fault he only has 3 rings with all the manipulating he has done with teammates and the front office

    Now that doesn't mean I don't realize hes still one of the top 5-10 players ever

    But if he stays at 3 rings(and 2 he needed help) then I still call it a failure in that he didn't achieve what his talent should have allowed

    Under-achieved for his talent.. rather than a failure maybe...
    Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, just as it is the spirit of a spiritless situation. It is the opium of the people.

    But if you under achieve, shouldn't that be considered a failure???

    I think Usain Bolt underachieved. Broke the world record for the 100m in 2008 and 2009... then never did again. Happy to beat everyone for multiple Olympic golds... but he had the talent to go under 9.50... actually I think he said he would one day break 9 seconds.. and probably could have, given how young he was at the time... but never even broke his own world record again... failure? Nahhh. But he definitely under-achieved... from 2009 onwards...
