    How does KD get a asterisks besides his name .this man had one helluva season and just because he's threatening to surpass LeBron now we have to create narratives to down play kd resume and accolades...If the warriors win without him that's what a team is supposed to do...only these morons look at it like KD is gonna be jealous if the warriors win without KD..that's Krazy KD will be Overjoyed adding another ring to the collection...I'm sure he'll return next season

    smith stop hyping KD. he did junk when he was with russel. playing with loaded warriors is nothing to brag about. he is great but not that great. Kawhi will be the great( if he can win here). put kd on toronto they wont make it to finals. put leonard on gsw, lord, they would never lose!
    kawhi is knocking ont he door of greatness. if tornoto steps up, it is very doable.

    The warriors beat 98% of all competition... they will walk through the bucks the raptors, the rockets, the blazers... but if next year, lebron has a super 3, if Houston makes a super 3, if giannis gets another elite player, if drake jumps in and plays with Lowry and kawhi, then the warriors need KD. Kd is the ultimate. He’s the guy you only bring out for the biggest threat. I wish we all knew already if lebron is getting AD and someone else. That way the warriors organization can tell kd, “you want to build a true legacy, stay and let’s defeat this new threat” I bet he’d stay and I bet hed lead the warriors over lebron and the lakers.

  • George Law

    Almost everything from these guys is negative and speculative. KD is hurt & they are not facing Lebron this year. Every game KD can rest is one more day he can heal and be ready if the first couple games don't go GS's way. KD being healthy is like a secret weapon in your back pocket. These sports broadcasters assume that these players don't have enough money and KD is going to go play for a crap team just to get a huge payday. KD could very well retire with GS if he wants. If he is ready to retire then he will go play for New York with whatever basket case they have on their roster. GS seems to be the exception to the rule and their big three are probably hoping KD suits up for every game because we all know anything can happen in the NBA. With small rosters and less than a handful of stars GS like any other team are one player away from from loosing the championship. For argument sake if KD doesn't play and GS wins a Championship they would have never got to the championship without him. Just because your injured doesn't mean your any less valuable than the players that are not. It seems once again these guys are trying to create drama where there shouldn't be any. I hope the players on both teams playing in the Championship avoid this kind of stuff. The Pistons were not suppose to beat the Lakers in 2004. Nothing is Guaranteed. KD will play if he can. No one wishes for there team to loose. I am going to stop watching this broadcast team and go back to watching old Boxing matches, Magic Videos and Bug Wars. I will enjoy the champion games without this kind of commentary. In the end it seems controversy is what sell tickets. I may be in the minority but I like positive, funny or informative sports clips. Sorry for the rant. Please don't crucify me for this post.

    The NBA is full of talent, but the ones we see as the best players aren't necessarily the best team players. B/Ball is still a team sport and until the "starters" and ball-hogs realize this they'll never win a championship.

Rockets with or without Chris Paul should've beaten em last year but instead of blaming it on injury blame it on they sorry ass shooting at the worst time. Old news

    GS wins title against depleted Cavs. GS loses against Complete Cavs. GS recruits KD. KD becomes 2 times finals MVP. KD gets hurt,...can't contribute, GS stepping up every game even though they should have nearly lost every game, yet the new narrative is warriors don't need KD interesting being that the warriors would have been beaten by the clippers if KD did not play! Steph is awesome,... and Klay is awesome but they both go cold from time to time. KD probably is the most consistent shooter in the NBA. Steve Ker begs KD to take over the Clippers series. He bails them out,... and some how, 5 minutes later while he can't even play, a new narrative appears and Steph is the new greatest player ever Again! Wait- I take that back, now it's Kawhi Leonard because as Jalen said, "things change in the blink of an eye." I understand why players detest the Media. I do have to say, I watch this shi* . lol. but I do feel like its become the new national enquirer

    Warrior will lose in 5 if Raptors get through and KD isn't playing. They need KD to drive and free up space for the Warriors shooters. If not; Raptors will crush them defensively.

    This just shows you greatness can’t catch a break. They slam KD when he plays and when he doesn’t. I respect Jalen because he managed to have himself a nice NBA career, but NONE of these people can carry KD’s jockstrap.
    I wish KD could read this-KD tell all these mofo’s to kiss your rich ass. SO tired of the KD hate. He doesn’t deserve it.
