I would have been happier at the Lakers resurgance if it wasn't LeBron spearheading it. Brutally lucky to not be standing at a 1-8 in the Finals. And here he could be adding a 4th this season only for more and more people to say he is the GOAT when he ain't even higher than Kobe in the GOAT conversation :facepalm:

also don't lie i have the receipts from the predictions some of us made earlier this season, it's you, me and Silver who had Lakers in the top 6, Art didn't have them making the playoffs rofl but im sure that was just bants

in terms of varied on-ball abilities and his vision on the floor he is better than Kobe yea, but there's more to GOATness. In terms of historic moments, clutchness and mentality Kobe is better. Kobe dragged a washed Lakers team to the 2010 title over the best Celtics team of the century... the same Celtics team who made Lebron cry and made him run away to go join two all-stars and great shooters in Miami

Prime Kobe, Prime Gasol, Prime Odom and a still great Ron Artest somehow a bad team. Fucking incredible takes really.

Those four combined with the greatest coach of all time.

Meanwhile LeBron had Mo Williams, JJ. Hickson, 100kg overweight Shaq and Anthony Parker

Looking back I miss that team so much. They were so fucking good on defense, Kobe was magic when he was on.

Hell, they even had a Bynum who was incredible when healthy. What a team for that terrible era basket-wise.

Media is generally useless though. There’s so many atrocious takes in the NBA. It’s actually shocking.

For example, the raptors weren’t predicted to make the playoffs this season (legit). Could you imagine missing the playoffs in the L’East?

LeBron is scrutinized for whatever reason. He should have more MVPs, he is definitely the best player of his generation and second only to Jordan in my opinion.

It is what it is

Didn't watch the game, but that is one ugly ass boxscore for the Clippers xD

Leonard and George combining for 24 points in a game 7, fucking yikes lol. The Clippers starters scored just 7 more points than their bench... in a game 7 xD Shouldn't be possible.

Also, Lou Williams is done, averaged 10ppg in this series on 35.7% shooting.

Finally, go Heat! Adebayo with an all-time defensive play, dayuuuum.

Okay it is a shame I am posting this opinion right after Kawhi's stinker just last night but I was meaning to post this before it seems like hindsight.

I normally agree with Mole but there is no chance Kawhi is better than Lebron nor is he comparable given Lebron is a top 3 all time player and Kawhi is highlighted due to recent limelights.

Of course he is amazing and has won and been the star of two different championship teams but Kawhi at best is a crucial assassin type player same goes for him last year in the playoffs. How? He was their player but generally lacks the presence Lebron has and can go anonymous a lot in games.

Lebron makes the team around him better, is the best playmaker in the NBA and can drive a team on his back.

It just isn't needed why he is a better (and greater player).

I personally dislike Lebron, as he will do anything for attention, thinks NBA should centre around his emotions and generally is quite a dumbass off the court but as a player there is no doubt what he is.

Kawhi putting up a flop last night is a bigger criticism of his thinking. He has been all his career in a team built by and off of Pop himself. From Pop's spurs to Nick Nurse's pop inspired Raptors. Which means very complete high Basketball IQ teams.

Clippers is not so impressive and is run by Doc fucking Rivers who is by far the most overrated and annoying coach of ALL TIME.

That being said Kawhi is only 29 and still has a lot of time to build his legacy and even compare to Lebron.

But recency bias, will tell he is better. And that is the key term.

Kawhi will retire before LeBron. He’s suffering from a degenerative injury and looked absolutely exhausted last night.

That or he’s lazy.

Lol, last night is massive blot on his career.

I'm happy it happened though, Clippers tried to cheat the game all season.

They haven't took it seriously once, I'm a firm believer that if you cheat the game then eventually you deserve to lose.

Happy for Denver.

Btw i never said Kawhi is better overall, i said because Lebron missed the playoffs and Kawhi dominated he was better in the moment.

I don't believe you get to miss the playoffs and call yourself the best, but obviously none of this matters after last night.

Obviously career wise it isn't close, I'm not that stupid.

im not the biggest LeBron fan too, but i entirely agree with Arq's sentiments above. The Kawhi possibly being better than him at the moment hype train was understandable because of what Mole mentioned (last season playoffs heading into this season), but LeBron overall will always be the athletic freak with high BBall IQ and a varied skillset and that in terms of skillset is just too much for Kawhi to compete with.

Let's see how the Clippers respond next season, you surely expect a change in approach and mentality away from the load-managing-we-can-turn-it-on-whenever-we want-to method Laughing but indeed the curse might genuinely be a thing and Playoff P might truly just be destined to being Pandemic/Wayoff P, we'll see.

I don't think Kawhi is that limited. How many times have we seen the dude destroy in the playoffs? He's taken over games and won with his offense and defense before.

Last night was terrible though, and this is certainly a stain on his career. No denying that.

It's just that last night was an exception rather than the rule with Kawhi. He usually looks way better than that. I don't think it's fair to characterize Kawhi as someone who is a "silent assassin". Dude was the best player on an NBA Championship winning team last season and took all the big shots, sometimes carrying that Toronto team singlehandedly.
