    No they woudln’t. LBJ is not a defensive liability.

    he most definitely is, by any metric

    every season he’s in the top 5 of guys who don’t get back on D

    he’s lazy and doesn’t play defense

  • smokeyca14

    Lebron doesn’t play D enough cause of fear of fouling out and then they’ll lose..
    Refs call anything these days.

    this has been the easiest series ever to make money on the lines never made sense and this is not me posting after the fact-I posted before all three raptors wins that I was betting on them and it was easy money.

    I’m hoping KD leaves. Over the last few years, Im just a little tired of the warrior domination. Like seeing new blood succeed. As a fan, I hope KD and Kyrie go to the Nets.

    Durant is about to make a lot of money in the offseason, maybe even more than Kwahi Leonard.

    Durant has an Achilles tendon injury.
    What if that injury is as bad as Boogie’s?

    Are teams willling to pony up a max deal for Durant if his jumping ability is a shadow of what it used to be.

    Cousins jumps like Kiki Vandewae, you might be able to slip a phone book under it.

    Cousins now operates around the rim more like FvF than ibaka.

    Awesome, thx for link

    Durant will stay with warriors now that it has been proven they can’t win ship without him.

    I think you are right. My dream of him going to the Lakers is just unfulfilled fantasy. Rumor is Chris Paul might go to the Lakers. Why? Plus, he has lots of trend on those wheels. The Lakers are a mess. In hindsight, not sure the LeBron move isn’t a Lebummer move.

    Durant has a $31,000,000 player option next year, so yeah, recover as a GsW, no questions asked

    Watching media day waiting to hear KD will be out again like

    If Durant exercises his 31,000k option, does that force Klay out?…

    ….or does Durants business mgr make it worth it for Klay to stay making significantly less than he can make else were?

    Last I heard backdoor deals were outlawed like the one the former nets owner (russian oligarchy) pulled off 10 years ago w/ak-47.

    But player to player……

    Warriors star Kevin Durant is expected to practice and do an extra workout with younger players on Sunday with the hope that he can play in Game 5.

    No, they’ll gladly give Klay the max he’s entitled to, regardless of what happens with KD.

    Are there any links to his showing his recent recovering gait?

    Walking forward…how do you think he looks today?

    looks like clearly the injury is not nearly as bad as Boogie’s.

    The markets have responded, but just a bit

    GsW series price at +4.50, down .50
    g#5 line at 1.5 or 2, down half point

    how does his lift look?

    He looks like a guy who is still favoring his leg, but will probably try to play tomorrow.

    “If Durant did get substantial work in Sunday, it wasn’t much. On top of the fact that Durant walked to the floor after the rest of his teammates, once cameras and media left the arena bowl, he was one of the first players back into the Warriors’ locker room following the team’s brief workout. The 30-year-old reappeared a few moments later with two big ice packs wrapped around the lower part of his right calf and his right Achilles tendon. He walked toward the team bus with assistant coach Mike Brown and a couple members of the Warriors training staff.”

  • telestraightshooter

    Durant’s game 5 status is now the same as GsW’s honesty about his injury….

    QUESTIONABLE.

    speaking of staus FvF is all go, despite the addition of 7 stitches and the loss of 1/2 tooth.
    He’s a real Canadian now

    No idea, his practice was closed to media. At this point they’d probably be happy to have him out there even if he’s not 100%, just to give the Raptors someone else to think about.

    Are you buying the durant injury? Legit question.

    I don’t think they’re hiding an Achilles injury, think it’s a Grade 2 calf strain instead of a mild one.

    Not hiding, just not talking about half the injury area.

    If there’s more to the story, we won’t hear it until after the Finals…everyone’s just speculating right now.
    Even a compromised KD would be better than playing the bench so many minutes. Just having him on the court should improve the spacing for Steph and Klay, Andre could come off the bench to give the 2nd unit more punch, and they could finally use the Hamptons Five lineup with Draymond at center instead of Boogie.
    Personally, I’d nail Boogie to the bench…but that’s just me LOL
