Default Why are people saying KD and Russ can't play with each other?

They made it to the finals two years ago and the only reason they didn't make it last year was Russ injury. Let's stop the nonesense. The was just the first game after the all-star break which was Russ first game back. We will see who wins in the finals matchup between the them.

It's people who have little interest in how the Thunder do and want to see Durant put up sick stats. Someone remind them what happened to Lebron on the Cavs.

Lebron wore down come 4th quarters because he had to carry his sad ass team throughout the game/season. I have noticed the same from Melo lately. Wears down come 4th quarter and can't buy a shot.

They can, but you can't deny the fact that more times than not Durant plays passive when Westbrook is on the floor. That's on Kevin Durant.

Because people like to overreact. Oklahoma City played like sure title contenders (favorites?) for a stretch with both Russ and Durant, winning 18 out of 20. That includes wins over San Antonio, @San Antonio, Golden State, LA Clippers, Chicago, Indiana and @Memphis.

If Westbrook gets healthy, they are a lock for the finals to me. Although I have concerns about his knee.

idk, but those people have got to understand its the 21st century and people can do what they with whom they want. Even the military approves now.

it's mainly the stans...KD isn't going ANYWHERE in the playoffs without a healthy Westbrook, that's a fact proven. this recent run that KD had while WBrook was injured was nothing more than a Lebron on the Cavs, 2k14 version. Great for the RS, but unlikely to do any damage in terms of getting a title.

I don't think it's people saying that KD and WB can't play with each other, it's more like OKC would be better off having traded WB for a piece they needed.

WB + picks for something like Al Jefferson + Kemba Walker (since people tend to overrate WB's worth/rank as a player)

Kemba/Jackson
Thabo/Lamb
Durant/Lamb
Ibaka/Collison
Jefferson/Adams (or Perk...)

Would absolutely destroy the league. Hell, if OKC just traded WB for Jefferson they would run the league.
