Now you're distorting what I said. Nobody is trying to convince you of anything, all I've done is state the truth, the roster didn't look great on paper, but they were always a top rebounding and top defensive under Mike Brown team and also a top 3 point shooting team in in '09 and '10.

You know, you haven't been around long, but you've quickly worked your way into the upper echelon of worst/most annoying LeBron stans. At this rate, you'll be giving pauk a serious run for his money within the next few months.


That means a lot to me, thank you

Lines like this let me know right off the bat that Lebron haters:

A: Never watch Lebron play
B: Never watched the players that they compare to Lebron play
C: Completely missed Miami's playoff run last year as a way of "protest"

The only players that you listed who had the"switch" on any consistent level were Bird and MJ. Wade has has history of not being healthy enough to stay consistent, and Kobe was never consistent enough on offense during his playoff runs (let alone regular seasons), except maybe one or two, even with scoring being his "Main Trade", to be given the "score at will" rep.

TLDR version:

Both you and Rip are, and have always been, full of sh!t.

2009 Perkins, sure. 2013 Perkins...no. He's nowhere close to the same one-on-one post defender he was from 2008-2010. He's shitty at even that, now.

Leave it to LeTisk queers to turn this thread into a shitfest. So many alts and trolls....

The thread title is clear - Durant is taking over like a superstar should. Looking at the numbers and his performances(eye-test) - he's doing just that in the absence of Westbrook.

All of the queers here can f'ck off.

I would argue that Durant, on the basis of his first two games, has performed just as well as LeBron in the Orlando series (if not better). Now, that could change, and I expect it to change when they play in Memphis (unlikely that Durant averages 35-13-7 for the rest), but what he has done is absolutely spectacular, last 3 minutes of game 2 included.

When people bring up the relative supporting casts, you have to consider the length of time that Durant has had to adjust for Westbrook's absence. This is a team that has been thrown in this situation with their second best player gone and their fluidity disrupted. The '09 Cavs played the same way for years. They were defensively solid, which OKC are not. Yes, Ibaka is better than anyone on the Cavs team other than LeBron, but he has been shit this series and the rest of the team hasn't been great. Martin was solid in game one, but he has been wildly inconsistent since Westbrook went down. Perkins is just... well, you know.

Both coaches are absolutely awful. Brooks and Brown both implement no offensive sets and have relied on 'give the ball to Durant and hope he makes the right play'. Brown is a better defensive coach though.

On the whole, take nothing away from Durant. Yes, he didn't finish off game 2, but he dropped 36-11-9 for god sake. This is the best defensive team in the league he's playing and he is absolutely carrying this team. Durant is a special, special player. He truly is.

Thank you. This is something all the LeBron stans are completely ignoring or just totally unaware of. Just two weeks ago they were thrown a huge curveball by losing their second best player, who's an All-NBA caliber player and top 3 PG. If this had happened back in March or early April, and they had more time to adjust and get used to playing without him, fine; but they've had 2 weeks and 6 games to adjust, on the fly, in the playoffs...and now they're playing the best or second best defensive team in the NBA.

LeBron's supporting casts were far from impressive. But they had multiple entire 82-game seasons to at least acclimate and get used to playing with each other as constructed.
