    I really used to hate Draymond, but the older I get the more I really truly appreciate what he did as a glue-guy & leader on that Warriors team. Being the guy in the locker room holding the egos in check, being a teacher, a mediator, taking a smaller contract, locking in an extension etc.
    It's mad what goes on behind the scenes but I would say he is one of the main reasons the GSW did so well for that period of time and how they're able to rebuild now without KD.

    Im so tired of gm’s making teams like it’s 2k. Stars have teams where systems are built around them speciafically. What do you think is gonna happen when they all play at the same time? Lakers sign like 5 guys that need the ball on their hands to be effective, but they ask these guys to still play their game but without considering the whole team, just mindless.

    Draymond rightfully said on Redick's podcast that this team (2016-17 warriors) was an anomaly, because Steph signed a lower contract after his many injuries on his ankle, Dray himself signed low because of his role and so did Klay, but also because they knew they could have a real god shot the next summer in signing KD by lowering their contracts.

    I'm still stunned that the Nets were willing to take Ben Simmons into their team. Imagine paying around 40 million dollars per year to a guy who literally can't make a jumpshot even if his life depended on it.
    If I was an owner of a NBA franchise, or responsible of building a roster for a NBA franchise, Ben Simmons would literally be the last expensive player I would consider taking into my team.

    I jumped on the 2016 Warriors bandwagon and loved every second of their battles with OKC and Cleveland. None of those were superteams. Then KD went to GS. The NBA got a lot less interesting for a while, pretty much until last year, with 2021-2022 being the most interesting since 2016. Hopefully, we get back to the era of team loyalty and quit the “ring chasing” era once and for all.

  • metalgeartrusty
    metalgeartrusty 11 miesięcy temu +31

    when the trade happened, for the first time in a decade, i was actually intensely excited to see 2 teams have a playoff series BEFORE the finals (nets vs 76ers) itss true that the product of the nba gets better without superteams. to say it another way, it is better when teams are all around the same level, then it comes down to intangibles, like hunger, leadership, clutch factor and mental toughness. These are the people we literally love seeing succeed. anything else is a waste of time
    its true most of us dont watch the nba, except for the deep playoffs and finals, where the matchups have almost always been decided before the playoffs even begin.
    its ok to have a superteam, as long as there are 10 or so superteams, and by the looks of the growing amount of talented players in the league, this might be where we are headed, slowly.
    injuries are a major factor. its specifically how the raptors beat golden state in those finals. if you have a big 3, meaning ur topheavy, and they get hurt, which is likely cuz they are playing the most, then your team as a whole is not built to withstand that loss.

    i think the reason the GSWs are an anomaly of a super team is because they actually took the time to develop their young talent into superstars as opposed to trading future assets for superstars. klay curry and draymond were all drafted by GSW, and it wasnt until they found success that they were able to jump the gun on durant. honestly the most deserving dynasty of all time out of the super teams talked about in this video.

    I knew about this trade from the first second and that the nets traded Harden and that they lost in a way because they don’t have that trio anymore etc etc. but what you don’t understand is that the nets now have curry and Andre Drummond who are pretty good in their own position and Seth isn’t bad, and I feel like he can grow and make the team stronger than it is and if harden isn’t happy there he shouldn’t be there!
    P. S. I don’t know why your making this video if all you said that wasn’t known be4 is that harden, Irving and durant only played 16/126 like who cares they were a good trio but there’s a time to move on! The only reason Steph Curry was never traded from GS is because they didn’t want to trade him because he was happy in GS and every other team had a good PG that was good enough for the team but technically they would trade him. So if life is about change I don’t get why your puzzled by why the nets traded harden, I mean HE WANTED TO LEAVE! So let him leave why not? It’s like LeBron I feel now doesn’t care about scoring so much he only does it bec he’s been doing it for years and knows he can average 30+ pts a game but he’s not as excited to score or dunk as he was years back. And he’s only waiting for his son to come into the league. But he would leave the lakers if he could! plclip.com/video/zuJigDr7boM/wideo.html

      @Bernardo Hill Reed sounds like you support people who agree mentally weak. How about he works on his free throw instead of his 3. Or pretends he deserves to be on the floor and dunk or take an easy shot within two feet. He is an offensive liability and a liability to his team. It's basketball make plays, not excuses. He plays a sport where is gonna have expectations from his teammates, coaches and fans. He gets over compensated for that stress. Fact is he is lazy and pathetic mentally.

But u all make it seems if u don’t have it ur not a good BBall player. So let me ask this question why Ben never develop a 3. The answer is not because he can’t he don’t want too. And who fault is that. .. the 76ers, The 76ers fans. And the Media. From a long time they’ve been bombarding Ben with this if u don’t have a 3 u no good. Ben just got tired Mentally. Emotionally. And just decided to rebel. I would too

    As a fan of the 76ers I am simultaneously very happy and very bummed out by this trade. the TLDR version is that Seth Curry was too good of a piece to lose in this deal, but was the only option for salary cap unless we could've somehow given danny green. All in all, I think this was a good option but ONLY if Embiid does not have to decrease his production and if James Harden comes ALL IN

      @bryan yau Simmons is a loser who can’t shoot, and was never going to play for us again. Drummond who is a great backup center and rebounder, was going to walk this off-season for more money and a starting role on another team. Curry who is a great shooter, was replaced by a HOFer, and still a top 10 player currently…James Harden. Who makes us contenders right now. The first round picks don’t mean anything. One of them is in 2027, and both would be late mid 20 picks anyway. That 2027 prospect rigth now is in middle school lol. I could care less about 2 first round picks when we are trying to win now. Sixers get better while the Nets are on a 11 game losing streak, get Bum Simmons, and still won’t have Kyrie for home games.

      @bryan yau Agreed. Sixers have more win-now potential, but a group of players that regularly succumb to playoff losses. They also have limited trade pieces to improve if things go pear shaped. Brooklyn on the other hand have a locker room and personnel issue. Curry and Mills are great shooters, but turnstiles on defence. Drummond hasn’t showed he can contribute to winning basketball, Ben can’t shoot and Kyrie won’t play. Steve Nash insists on playing KD 35+ minutes post-Achilles injury and hasn’t shown he can build a functional offence outside the big 3. Both teams are in a situation right now, and if management and coaching can’t work something out Embiid and KD will walk.

      @aprophethere And when a player has bad options at his current franchise we should expect them to go on strike until they're traded?
      It's a testament to how weak-minded James Harden is. If he doesn't have an idealistic scenario, he doesn't want to play.
      The right way would've been for him to declare his intention to be traded, show up to training, train, show up to game night, play and await for offers to come in. He can say whatever he wants about the Rockets during that time. But him showing up and performing the duties for which he's paid a lucrative sum of money, is the right way.
      Just like teams shouldn't be trading players without notifying them of their plans to do so, it's a matter of morality and respect. Of which very little is shown by either side in the NBA, player or club.
      So yeah, I disagree with a lot of your point about "management being unwilling to accept it" and "wasting 3 years on a rebuild".
      None of that factors in to a grown man conducting himself like a spoiled teenager who wants a PS5 because his PS4 which served him greatly, is busted because of the way he played with it and needs some investment into fixing it.
      He's totally entitled to want to leave a club for whatever reason, but if a player is a dick in how they go about it, then my respect for the individual wavers.

      Did someone forced him to do anything? All people said and all I would have said, that you should be vaccinated to keep yourself save and others. If he does not want it is his choice. He is losing money though, but that is because of contract. It is controversial, i know. Because state demands to be vaccinated if you want to do certain things publicly. But some rules go above others when it is serious matter, like health and safety of yourself and others... Things like these are all over world now in different industries.
