Its still really hard to speculate where he finishes out because hes only 30 years old, but its already obvious how special he is. HoF for sure, I think off the top of my head he falls short of the Top 10 behind Magic, Stockton, Robertson, Kidd, Nash, Th 2

Youre right and I dont mean to get into a super opinionated argument like that, but still, gotta pay homage to the greats. Plus the one thing about point guards specifically is play-making is one of the traits that would carry over, and all of the guys o 1

Durant, bron, Kobe, Dirk, shaq, Timmy... plus guys like Kawhi, Igoudala, TP, Billups, Pierce. Its an incredible award, but I dont think it always means you were the greatest player in that series, it just means you stepped up to the plate when the team n 1

This notion of Rich Paul leaking reports about Kyrie wanting to leave Boston to stop AD from wanting to go there is ridiculous Do you really think AD doesnt have Kyries phone number 5:48 pm Tue Feb 2 EDTDeleted

If the Warriors lose KD, theyre not going to be interested in filling his cap space with guys like Lee or Hardaway (though I myself have a soft spot in my heart for Timmy). Theyll try to solidify existing assets and look at a serious replacement. 1

Andre Igoudala is 464 days older than Chris Paul. In one extra season, hes played 1087 games versus Pauls 922. Not debating that conference finals, I agree we were robbed of a truly epic Game 7, but calling Igoudala an old man compared to Paul is silly. 2

Man, one of his clutchest shots the whole game put them up 131-128. Curry is not a great defender by any stretch, but we lost that game because of poor team and time management, I dont think its fair to put that blame on Curry. 2
