      Just seen this and i bet everyone who agreed feels stupid. You dont acquire a KD FOR LUXURY.He is the most necessary player to be added to any roster. Lets be clear shit dont get real till u hit the playoffs. As of 6/7/19 shit done got real and we need KD.

                Giannis isn’t better than Kd not Steph. Watch Steph prove himself in the finals....Again

                  So by this logic that “the warriors couldn’t beat the cavs without KD” then that must mean that the heat couldn’t beat the mavs if they had a rematch cuz they lost in 5 in 2011? Cmon now we all know if there was a rematch with all players healthy and playing all games, the warriors would win... the series went to 7 games!! Two teams couldn’t get more even than that...

                                KD is a luxury. Period. If people think they'll be favorites next year should KD leave after this season, that solidifies the point.

                                THEY NEVER NEEDED KD. THEY JUST NEEDED KD TO LEAVE OKC.

                                  First, Max needs to stop it with these insane hot takes.

                                  Second, the only reason KD helps the Warriors is by not being on any other team. They are no better or worse with or without him.

                                  Third, ESPN is garbage. That is all

                                    How in the hell can the no experience, young and under-talented Bucks beat these Warriors with only Giannis...he hasn't proven himself!!! No rings and this is his first time in a Conference finals. The Bucks aren't even sweeping the Raptors. GTFOH

                                          So Steven A Smith debunks Max statement easyly. I find he is always on the other team's side until realises that goldenstate is too good for them. He is a walking contradiction

                                            My biggest problem with Max Kellerman is that he never makes any point with all that he says!!!!!

                                                Stephen A is wrong can’t complain about KD going to the Warriors and it’s the weakest move in the history of sports but then call him a necessity???

                                                                                  • D Man

                                                                                          The running around-and-around-and-around Curry is what makes him a luxury.
                                                                                          Without the running around-and-around-and-around Curry, he is but a physical advantage to the game.

Also I get Lillard was injured, but are we gonna act like steph isn't playing with a dislocated finger? Or that andre also didn't play in the closing game? Come on, this isn't an sports analyst show, its just like a barbershop but everyone wearing suits, just opinions.
