Arrow Why are we celebrating Kawhi’s 28ppg 4 assists 43% FG Finals? It’s worse than LeBrons

....


It’s worse than 7 out of 9 of LeBrons Finals

Kawhi in 2019: 28ppg 4 assists 43% FG

...




LeBron in 2018 35ppg 10 assists 54% FG


LeBron in 2017: 34ppg 10 assists 54% FG


LeBron in 2016: 30ppg 9 assists 50FG%


LeBron in 2015: 36ppg 9 assists 40%FG


LeBron in 2014: 28ppg 4 assists 58% FG


LeBron in 2013: 25ppg 7 assists 45% FG


LeBron in 2012: 29ppg 7 assists 47% FG




Why is Kawhi getting celebrated? He played worse than all of LeBrons Finals

No idea. Especially when you take into account it was versus a depleted Warriors squad.

Meanwhile, Harden averaged 35/7/6 on 44/35/82 against the Warriors...and 4 of those game were with KD, one of their best defenders.

Who’s celebrating stats? Only lestans care about stats.

What’s celebrated is that Kawhi won on a new team with a new coach that was less stacked when compared to most of lebron’s finals teams.

Both beat depleted GSW teams

2016
2019

But only one did it while playing his first year for that franchise with a rookie coach. Just means that the east isn’t shit and therefore 8 finals trips in a row in the east could have been done with guys like Kawhi, KD, or AD in lebron’s shoes. Nothing special about it.

Obviously if you watched the series you could see he was frustrated in all but 1 game. He still got his points due to free throws and his uselessness opened the door for guys like VanVleet and Siakam to come up. I think one of those two should have won FMVP, but everyone knew Kawhi was going to get it anyway. Kawhi has never been a great penetrator or shot creator. Especially when he was doubled constantly, I was actually surprised he scored as much as he did.

c'mon guys let's not be sensitive little girls shall we? what's the deal with the selective focus on assists and points and not rebounds?



we absolutely should celebrate kawhi's win. kawhi is the only player to end two dynastys - he shit in the heat's mouth and also had a chance to dump in golden state's mouth.




how is that not celebration-worthy.

While winning the same amount of games as the Clippers did, despite the Clips facing KD and a hint of Cousins.

Why was 28ppg on 43% with 4 assists enough for Kawhi to win in 6 games?


Why did LeBron lose in 4 with 35ppg on 54% with 10 assists?
