Thumbs up KD joined fair and square, this is COMPETITIVE sports

Steph developed the best team in the NBA around him...he turned GS from a toxic graveyard to the most attractive destination in the NBA

Was everyone supposed to " Just play nice" and not look to improve their team or situation?

That isn't how it works, you play to win, you make moves to win

It's not like KD took paycuts while still in his prime to make it happen

It's disrespectful to competitive basketball to lose to a team and than join them. Stop excusing that.

So in order to compete, should you not be competitive? (Not doing your best to create the best possible team is by definition, not being competitive)

They took pay cuts in their prime, that isn't being competitive

Making the most money you can is being competitive

I don't know if that was a shot at LeBron and the Heatles but who gives a fuck if he didn't take paycuts.

Too much bitchin going around, if he takes the route of Melo and gets paid, he's not trying to win. If he's DMC or AD he's empty stats. It was clear him and Westbrook weren't winning shit together. He left for a better oppurtunity to win. Get the fuck over it. Damn, I ain't ever heard so many grown men complaining about another grown man's decision.

"Competetive"

- Joins a team that set the regular season record for wins

- Joins a team that nearly won the NBA finals

-Joins the team that just knocked him out of the playoffs because he wasn't able to step up

-Joins the two soon to be greatest 3 point shooters in history, one being an all star, the other being a back to back MVP and the only UMVP in league history

- Joins a DPOY runner up and Finals MVP

- Doesn't even talk to Russ about his decision to leave

Yup

while I don't really give a damn about the other points on your list what on earth does his decision not to talk to Westbrook have to do with being competitive?

That was a more personal nitpick.
He couldn't even man up enough to tell someone that he calls his "brother" that he's leaving him for the dudes that beat them.

you can make all the threads you need to, to convince yourself that KD's jumping to GSW wasn't a b!tch move - doesnt change the fact that he is a b!tch and it is a b!tch move. nothing is going to alter the reality of it.

I agree with that. Westbrook can't be his bro if he didn't inform him of his departure.
