They were discussing the wrong thing here… the topic should have been: “Why Kevin Durant cannot be compared to lebron” I have a hard time figuring out why no one is discussing this… as nba fans over the years we’ve seen lebron carry teams in the playoffs with little to no help… and we’ve seen him win with lesser squads. Kd has only had 2 years where he played on a team with little to no help and it was his chance to carry and show why he may be the best player… (2013 & 2021) both times he failed… he put historic numbers but nevertheless failed. Now I don’t understand this… because if this were lebron ppl would b killing him… in my opinion… kd can’t compare to lebron just on the simple fact that kd doesn’t have the ability to operate on the same level as king James (advancing in the playoffs with a lesser team)

Magic came in SPEAKING FACTS! Kyrie knows KD gonna follow what he does. They were waaaaaaaaaaaay too nonchalant about the season and thought they would beat everyone without trying. They got humbled, and what's funny is that they're gonna be nonchalant next season as well 🤷🏿‍♂️

i know magic is an all time great and everything, but i think he's wrong. look how close the nets were to winning and Harden wasnt even 50% healthy and no Khyrie at all. if all three were healthy i dont believe it would have been as competitive, IMO

Two years In a roll and got knock out , they try too buy a chip and so far It's not work , they forgot leadership , LBJ and them let this one go by too rest and their coming back next year and LBJ can get 2 more chips and pass the ball or 3 more , facts , plus he's won a chip for every team he's been on , he will win 2/3 more then go back too his home team and play a roll on the team a year and give It up.

Steve nash doesnt make adjustment when needed. He got out coached in game 7 and thats why they lost. He stuck with harris who was terrible , he played KD too many minutes and KD had nothing left in the tank in the overtime. What happen to shamet? jeff green game 7 barley got minutes. Nash is not a defensive minded coach and has no idea how to become one.

Kyrie and KD did not have to carry their teams to the championship. LeBron carried Kyrie. All Kyrie had to do was hit that big shot. He wasn't the leader of the team. That was Lebron. He did most of the work while Kyrie was along for the ride and he hit that shot. Lebron did everything else. KD on the other hand join a team that just won a ring very recently. They had a very established team with Curry, Klay, Dryamond and also couch Kerr. He didn't have to come in and make anything. He just came along for the ride. Sure KD played great but he was never the leader. Now KD and Kyrie want to do it on there own and doing it on your own is completely different. They though all you had to do was show up and the ring was theres. Turns out its not that easy. And this mentality that they don't need a coach really says it all about why they lost. Sure they won before but this time it's different. This time they are the ones in charge. They aren't just going along with the ride. And both KD and Kyrie aren't leaders. Especially Kyrie who has shown time and time again how much of a pre-modana locker room cancer he is.

Magic has good points but the truth is that the Nets role players were pretty decent. Blake Griffin and Jeff Green played well all series, and even Bruce Brown and Landry Shamet had their moments. Yeah Joe Harris kinda went MIA but still, the Nets have a good enough bench to win a championship with a healthy Big 3.

I’m not sure why Stephen A. keeps saying how Ty Lue would have been a better fit than Steve Nash, it doesn’t take a genius to see that kyrie was coached by Ty Lue and left. Kyrie obviously doesn’t want to play for him or he wouldn’t have left Cleveland.

James Harden got them to the playoffs while they were resting and missing games. Even though KD had a great offensive game, he didn't know when to pass the ball in the last moments. 0-6 in OT because they expected him to shoot. That is the difference between him and LBJ. He would have looked to make the correct play. Not be a hero.

It’s the choice they made when they got Harden. It’s hard to get good role players when your paying 3 guys huge $$. I’m not knocking them, anyone would’ve went for Harden, and it would’ve worked if they were healthy. Though, I wish Stephen A would lay off Nash he did the best he could with what he had left to use.
