All that, plus the Magic's Aaron Gordon joins the show to answer some difficult questions in 'Whatchu Got?' like 'Mailman' or 'Air Chair?'

    Excuse me, the warriors are 171-25 when Durant is not playing for the Warriors from 2014-15 season to now. They CLEARLY do not need Durant.

            Curry isn't the best player but has more MVPs than KD, Freak and Klaw combined. What?!?

                  "If McCollum can become an All-star that can help" Soooo we ain't gonna act like the all-star game is just for fun and those who get picked are not always the best, they FAN PICKs, its for money bro. Come On, McCollum can score on anyone, there's like a trillion "All-stars" in the west, half can't get onto the team, you had flipping 70points Devin Booker not making it, and the GOAT Lou Williams, come on

                            Owen _ the Celtics would’ve won the east year for sure. Honestly. That’s the team that had all the pieces to beat golden state. But they were too dysfunctional. If I was a Celtics fan I would be pissed.

                                fact of the day:
                                Durant is actually younger than Curry

                                        The fact that the Warriors are still winning just shows how much of a puss KD is. His “team” has been playing the same without him, he’s not even needed.

                                          Steph Curry cannot do anything by himself. He literally has 2 other all stars and a good ass bench.

                                                  In retrospect.... this definitely was a really good rookie class. One we just might be looking back on one day and comparing to other great classes

                                                          If the playoffs started today with a snake draft and blank rosters and everyone was healthy and available my first pick would be Steph. To me that makes him more valuable than Kawhi and the GF, no offense to those guys but Curry needs to be in the GOAT convo more not being compared to those 2.

They won 59 games without Kawhi last year....were 17-5 without Kawhi this year....and are 1--0 without Kawhi against the Bucks. Y'all who didn't think that this team's shooting would progress back to the mean don't know shit about basketball or statistics.

                                                                            • philaw123

Healthy Rockets couldn't beat Warriors without Durant while playing in Houston. Still think Rox are better than Blazers? Even if you tag Bucks, Raps and Sixers in your top 5, no way can you put Kyrie led Celtics over Blazers. Without Kyrie, maybe Cs go in.

I would define the elite team as the team that shakes the league or sets the tone for a few years. Such as Warriors do or the future Bucks (probably) or the Cavs once upon a time did...
