      Skip and Shannon: UNDISPUTED Steph been overachieving, got three rings , went to the finals 5 times. We got other players, who don’t even got a ring who should have one ☝️ and will love to get one. Nobody is gonna say curry shouldn’t be in the HOF even if he drops off .

    Thank you guys finally somebody making sense. KD is better then Steph In every way except shooting. Warriors is stephs team but KD got them two more rings It was KD that drops the most points for them. And Also Another player who is just as important is Klay because because klay went down the warriors were doing good not great but they were chasing the Raps. But as soon as he got injuryed steph was Trash. Curry is just a fantastic shooter that’s it. Kyrie is in my opinion more clutch then Curry I am it was kyrie not lebron going face to face against him in the 2016 finals. And it was kyrie who crossed curry up with a step back three to win the NBA championship and he shot that right in the 2x MVP face and It was the most incredible thing I had ever seen and I am a Celtics fan

      Come on now the man averaged 30 points for the finals while being double teamed, even triple teamed when Klay went out. When he had no scorer around him, he scored 47. How is that not great?

        the raptors had an historic defensive with 2 former defensive player of years, 3x blocks leader, plays 4 all nba level defeners make that 5 when pascal make an all defensive team & the raptors game plan was box in 1 or a triangle + 2 on steph curry because they know when steph goes off you get blown out.

          steph is a better then kd also kd is the 2nd greatest beta (kd has alpha talent but beta mentally) in the nba history to kareem

          • Dev Tickhit
            Dev Tickhit  2 months back

            steph defeated kd & kd joined steph team to reach his highest peak but kd peak isn't better the steph; also getting kd is like when the 1983 76ers got to pair dr j & moses malone then they lost on 2 games in the playoffs & swept the lakers in the finals

              yo does everyone realize that in 2016 draymond suspensions, iggy hospitalizes, bogut injury + harrison barnes shooting 20% from the field lead to the warriors downfall

              • Dev Tickhit
                Dev Tickhit  2 months back

                why does everyone steph clutch shot against the pelicans in 2015, 2015 -iggy should have been steph, 2017 - kd, 2018 - could have been steph over kd; kd didn't show up in game 1 & but steph didn't show up in game 3

                        Steph is going to go down as one of the greatest if not the greatest shooter of all time. He still has time to have those make or break moments. But for the Warriors Klay is more clutch in the finals for shooting. KD did deserve the MVP for the past finals.

                          Steph Curry changed the game of basketball and everyone knows it!! His style of play. Don’t blame him for the loss, he lost his key players.

                                    The raptors were the better team so steph lost. Nothing new here... It’s called team sports lmao:

                                      Let's apply some common sense here, this year's NBA Finals was determined by how both teams were coached and managed during the regular season, the Warriors were plagued with injuries and simply ran out of gas in the Finals. Warrior bench players received limited minutes in the regular season and couldn't get in a rhythm against a tight Raptor's defense in the playoffs. Steph was double and triple teamed throughout the series, leaving other players open, but only briefly, because the Raptors recovered quickly. The Raptors had a deeper rotation and out hustled the Warriors, this was the Raptor's strategy and it worked because of the Warrior injuries. Warriors had no plan and could make no adjustments after the injuries.

                                        Its annoying everyone getting on Steph for that last shot. Personally i knew he wasn't going to make it. I think he was messed up mentally, Klay being hurt, KD being hurt, Looney hurt, Iggy old and hurt. Bench was either way too old or way too young. He probably felt terrible and hopeless. Yet again, he did average 30/6/5. This is MUCH better than what Lebron averaged against the Mavs? Right Shannon? I mean Lebron King James, the chosen one, averaged 17.8 points in the FINALS. Chris Bosh and Dwayne Wade had more. If we let James off with bail, Curry is as free as you can get.

                                            It’s hard to do much when your being doubled all quarter and we all know Steph not big so it’s not that hard to push him around

                                              the debate now should be.. which one is better? McCaw's 3 peat or Lin's no sweat ring?

                                                        Steph was more concerned with his players than the game.

                                                            Warriors always won when full team was playing.

                                                              Steph Curry is still a champion. He showed it all throughout the playoffs final.

Plus they are better defenders. I feel like because he is the face of the team people short change the other guys and say he is the key to there success. Even though that is clearly false.

They played a box in once Klay went down, the box and1 worked so he passed the ball, that left someone open. These role player's that were in the game r not knock down shooters. So people need to stop. 3 defender's ran Curry off the 3 pointer to force him to pass which thats the right thing to do.

                                                                              • Bruce Dixon

                                                                                • Misael Cartagena

                                                                                  • Lemon Ice

                                                                                    It seems like Steph is more interested in dribbling behind his back between 2 defenders or dribbling into triple coverage or getting blocked by the rim as he attempts to dunk than actually playing like the unanimous MVP that he was by actually making a 3 to seal the game. John Wooden said "Do not mistake activity for achievement" and Bruce Lee said " Showing off the the fool's idea of glory", Steph should heed those words.

It obviously means you accept mediocrity and therefore shouldn’t be watching sport. And btw Klay would’ve been the finals mvp this year cause he’s actually clutch unlike Curry

                                                                                      • Ben Simmons
