This is true..this is about the 5 year that gang of players including Doc has been together..they may have to break it up

Clips are nothing, part of it is being out West and part is that they bought into their own hype. CP3 is probably on the downside of his career especially with the injuries piling up and the rest of those guys get overhyped. They may get past Utah but they would lose in 4 or 5 vs. Golden State.

Raptors brought a good effort on defense, active hands and the Bucks were all too willing to give the ball away. They did good meeting Giannis on the spot, one of the weaknesses he has is he doesn't anticipate the defenders well going to the paint and he gets a lot of turnovers and offensive fouls because of it. He also wasn't looking to pass at all today and played too much hero ball. He will learn and eventually he's got to get a decent jump shot. Anyways this figures to be an easy Raps series win after this. Pretty pathetic effort from the home team, as a Bucks fan I'm used to it.

I can see that. Not every grouping can be as successful or have the longevity of the Spurs core group who have been together for years and will likely retire as Spurs.

Kwahi had one of the greatest playoffs game performance. His skills are close to LBJ..

I wouldn't go that far AP. Leonard is an awesome player though, especially on defense. That is a surprising development that the Spurs are 2-2 with the Grizz. The Grizz have only gotten older and a bit weaker over time so I figured that was a 4 or 5 game series. I don't think Memphis is any threat to win in SA so it's still going to be Spurs in 6 or 7 but still a much better showing from them than I figured.

I think he could become the next Lebron Darth. He's steadily developing his game and adding things to it. His jumpshot has really come up in the last 2 seasons and he hasn't missed a FT yet in this series. 40/40 I believe. Give him 2 more years. When Lebron is calling it quits, Kawhi could definitely fill his shoes.

I said close but no LBJ..Leonard offense is at the Kobe level..that was a great game ..Kwahi carried the Spurs..too bad the West is so loaded..

I don't know if Kwahi can dominate the game like Lebron but he can put up some numbers that compares like Kobe numbers comparison to MJ..Yes close but no where as good as the original

Leonard will be 26 this summer. As great as Leonard is if we are comparing him to LeBron at the same age it isn't really close. Leonard is the better shooter and defender but he is not going to be a LeBron, doesn't have anywhere near the same impact. They don't really play alike on top of it.
