Re: NBA/WNBA Thread

LOL! I know right? I thought it was great. Westbrook yelling "I'm comin'!" ("I" not "We", which is his main problem in a nutshell), and Durant saying "You're losing!", which they did, by alot. I felt like it just sort of highlighted the reson that KD is now in blue and gold.

Westbrook is an amazing player, but he isolates himself and tries to win by himself. Triple-doubles are great, and he's great at getting them, but IMO he does not help his team grow and improve. He also makes a lot of underhand comments on social media and then just happens to wait until they're in OKC to talk crap (where was that when they played in Oakland?). I don't know the man, and I know he doesn't have a lot of help there, but he comes across to me as childish and self-centered.

I loved how Green and Curry got their hands on the cupcake shirts and wore them in the post-game interviews, lmao! This team always has each others' backs.

I just think that people have it wrong about KD and why he left. It wasn't about an easy ring or anything like that. He just loves basketball and hates drama, and wanted to play with like-minded people that he likes playing with that actually play like a team instead of the Westbrook show. I know that the fans are disappointed and I don't blame them for that, but man, give the man some respect that put so much of himself into your team and community for 9 years.

Yeah, the back-and-forth went on forever.

Honestly, I hate that their relationship has gone down the drain. Even if you can't play on the same team, you can have respect for a former player.

Look at the "King" James and DWade! LeBron left the Heat, but they're still the best of friends.

I couldn't agree more.

If you ask me, that had a lot to do with KD leaving. As you mentioned, a lot of times he isolates for himself. Now, he's improved quit a bit. I remember several seasons ago, he'd play so out of control it would be hard follow.

Re: NBA/WNBA Thread

The scores this year have been off the richter! And it's not lack of defense, it's that the whole "up-tempo" concept has finally gone league-wide!

Spoiler: Important ad for our astore, with helpful links
Amazon gift cards make great gifts both for shoppers who are lazy and/or have a lot of gifts to buy. They're also a shrewd choice if there are individuals in your life for whom it is difficult to shop. When bought through the astore, they also help support this site, which isn't self-sufficient and doesn't hold fund-raisers or any of that other crap.

Please consider doing at least some of your holiday shopping through our astore this year.
