if basketball=nut kicking dray is HOF

(•̪●) (carne asada), Friday, 24 February 2017 16:55 (four years ago) link

pretty damn hard to pick imo.

Spottie, Friday, 24 February 2017 16:59 (four years ago) link

not that hard imo, golden state's roster serves to underrate klay and overrate draymond. put draymond on an average team and ppl would talk about him roughly like how they talk about steven adams.

lag∞n, Friday, 24 February 2017 17:05 (four years ago) link

imo if you put klay on a bad team he puts up an empty 24-25 ppg. if anyone is a system player it is he. the warriors system works because of drays versatility not the other way around

k3vin k., Friday, 24 February 2017 17:08 (four years ago) link

Klay is one of the best shooters in the league and a serviceable perimeter defender. Dray is a better defender and a worse shooter (significantly) who can do more things on the court tho i think his 3 pt ability is perhaps more significant given his position and who he guards. i think if u put both of them on teams w league avg dudes, klay's team would put up more than wins, and generally speaking i think klay's skillset is more generally valuable so i vote Klay

dray is an all world defender but a far below average scorer and a good playmaker where people think hes great cause hes playing with great players to playmake with

lag∞n, Friday, 24 February 2017 17:18 (four years ago) link

i think he might have a thing for kicking people in the nuts . not sure if that's a pos or a neg tho

(•̪●) (carne asada), Friday, 24 February 2017 17:22 (four years ago) link

draymond has only kicked someone in the nuts once tbf

Spottie, Friday, 24 February 2017 17:26 (four years ago) link

phil spector only shot someone once too, just gonna put that out there

nomar, Friday, 24 February 2017 17:27 (four years ago) link

it true we shd prob refer to drays repeat behavior as nut hunting

lag∞n, Friday, 24 February 2017 17:28 (four years ago) link

exactly

Spottie, Friday, 24 February 2017 17:31 (four years ago) link

dray is better but that doesn't excuse his nut hunting

ciderpress, Friday, 24 February 2017 17:33 (four years ago) link

this is crazy

J0rdan S., Friday, 24 February 2017 18:04 (four years ago) link

draymond is no offensive superstar but he has a serviceable three point shot and is one of the best playmaking bigs in the game

J0rdan S., Friday, 24 February 2017 18:05 (four years ago) link

klay is elite at one of the most important skills in the NBA but i agree that on a middling team he'd be mostly empty points, gimme dray's all around game and crazy intensity

J0rdan S., Friday, 24 February 2017 18:07 (four years ago) link

if anyone is a system player it is he. the warriors system works because of drays versatility not the other way around

i agree with this

J0rdan S., Friday, 24 February 2017 18:08 (four years ago) link

his playmaking is good but no one wld be talking abt it if he wasnt playing with guys who constantly create the halfcourt fast break, like he cant take advantage of ppl going under on the pnr cause hes not a good enough shooter etc, hed have 4-5 assists a game on a normal team, and lets be clear on his scoring hes shooting 43% and scoring 10 a game in a situation where he gets more open looks than anyone else in the entire nba, hes is bad at doing points

the warriors shd be given credit for coming up with a great system for their players, the difference between the jackson years and now is lol, but there are a lot of players that cld work in drays spot the system wld just have to shift, which isnt that hard to do when you have the talent they do

lag∞n, Friday, 24 February 2017 18:13 (four years ago) link

there are more players like klay in the NBA than there are like draymond

J0rdan S., Friday, 24 February 2017 18:18 (four years ago) link

only a very handful of guys who can shoot like klay, which is the single most valuable basketball skill

lag∞n, Friday, 24 February 2017 18:21 (four years ago) link

and besides basketball isnt decided on scarcity, its decided on being good at basketball

lag∞n, Friday, 24 February 2017 18:22 (four years ago) link

idk we can do the "on a bad team" thing all day, if draymond is on a bad team he's putting up like a 13/8/4 with lousy shooting percentages. he plays great in their system but his teammates are literally the best shooters in the league so i'm not sure how much he's elevating them further.

call all destroyer, Friday, 24 February 2017 18:32 (four years ago) link

i think we can all agree that most of his value is on the other side of the ball regardless, hes great at lots of different defensive things

lag∞n, Friday, 24 February 2017 18:35 (four years ago) link

it's true he's one of the best defenders in the NBA

J0rdan S., Friday, 24 February 2017 19:36 (four years ago) link

he is insanely good and versatile at D, maybe the most versatile defender since kg?

lag∞n, Friday, 24 February 2017 19:39 (four years ago) link

yeah can't think of too many guys since who were unmovable on the block and also a terror while on the move

his usage is like 15% because he plays on the same team as the 2 best offensive players in the NBA, come on

something for everyone here

“You know what, Steph Curry has took a step back,” Rodman said. “And it’s cool. It’s actually cool because if you see his game now, I always said with that Golden State team, I always say one thing: that one player is the player right there that makes that team. Who is that player?…

“That is right there: Thompson,” Rodman said. “That kid right there is good. If he went to another team, he’d suck. What I’m saying is that Klay Thompson makes that team. Everybody’s always worried about Curry. I know Curry’s dad and all that bulls—. But Klay Thompson makes that team. It ain’t Green, that guy, no. It’s Klay Thompson.”

Klay Thompson is known as “The Electrician” in China, a nickname that – with the backing of his shoe company, Anta – has caught on in recent weeks in a country where the usually mild-mannered All-Star has embraced a different, bathing-in-a-tub-of-gold-sneakers persona. Thompson has begun to embrace the blue-collar moniker, which he earned because of his ability to energize an arena with his timely, titillating shotmaking
