Before KDs arrival, they had Harrison Barnes who used to be quite solid. He scored buckets, taking full advantage of having 2 GOAT shooters with him. But after Barnes awful NBA Finals 2016 series, Warriors needed an upgrade. KD was more productive, although his role was the same as Barnes once had. As the title says, is it fair to say that KD was a high level role player at Warriors?
Yeah role player who was also the best player on the team
Warriors fans in denial. You love to see it.
His role was be a star
See everyone has a role
I mean just seems like we’re using the term “role player” very liberally here
WTF is wrong with you
If high level role player = perennial all star then yes
no, he was the finals MVP ​ goddamnit season please get here
Iguodala also won Finals MVP & hes a (great) role player for GSW.
Iguodala was never the best player, nor a perennial all-star and all-nba guy on GSW. It’s not the same. Kevin Durant was not a role player of any kind on the Warriors.
he was the best player on the team for the finals?
Define role player.... Do role players average 20+ ppg?
Obviously not. Harrison Barnes fit into the system. KD could fit into the system, but he also had the leeway to get his points outside of the system with his iso scoring
OP is a troll
Why does it feel like everyone are called role players on the Warriors lol
Yeah everybody loves talking about Draymond is a glorified role player until the Warriors win something then hes a HOF All NBA All Star
Its almost like this sub is made up of millions of people and different people have different opinions.
When you can say Draymond is the 4th best player on your team ya people are gonna say something
He’s easily a hall of fame level player. He’s probably a top 3 defender ever and the NBA’s best defender 5 postseasons in a row. He also has the highest Offensive IQ on the warriors
Kevin Durant was by far the best fucking player on the team. A 73 win team that choked in the Finals added Durant......and proceeded to go 8-1 the next 2 Finals appearances. Add in the 2 Finals MVP’s and what the fuck are you talking about......
By far is a huuuge stretch.
Who was better?
