      Steph should have won MVP in 2015.. this guy downplaying him when he's a literal champion that started a dynasty.

        Steve A act as if everyone in the 80s were as big as LeBron. Reggie Miller still isn't 170lbs. AI was 4 inches shorter and 30lbs lighter than Steph

          Steph "Never shows up in the finals" Curry has the 10th highest career scoring average in NBA Finals history.....this is a media narrative being pushed for NIKE....nothing more.

            "I predict Steph, Klay, and Dray has one more in them" (Max) who is the head of the sports division at espn? Please, in the name of God give Max a raise and a long term contract.

              Kendrick is so correct. Because of my love for basketball, I pushed my son, and he was so good that by his soph year, he was touring AAU and playing varsity ball. He tore his ACL, had the best doctor at Sutter, came back 6 months later but was not the same. One year later, he was as normal as ever but chose Biology and Chemistry instead because he had lost time recovering. I tore the Achilles on my left leg and had a very bad ankle injury on the right. That was in my athletic years in the 90s. I don't even remember my ankle injury but to this day, almost 20 years later, my Achilles gets my attention and affects my mobility at the tennis court. The good news is that the fans, don't know about our organization, are willing to give Klay a full year off. We love him that much. So, my bros D'lo, Omari, Willie, and Burks, here you go. Have fun. By the way, I agree with one of the commenters, Kendrick needs to have a permanent position with ESPN. His top-secret and privileged sources are always solid like he is some kind of a secret agent or something. And, he delivers his message so softly but effectively like he is a "goodfella." I love Perkins today and in Boston.

                    Injuries could ruin a superstar's career just ask Grant Hill or Anfernee "Penny" Hardaway. Good luck to KD and Klay.

                          The Warriors had entered the Finals 5 STRAIGHT YEARS, so IF they get another GO next season and possibly entered the Finals AGAIN, that would mean it is the 6th. WIN or LOSE to WHOEVER wins and reach the Finals also.

                            As much as I respect his no bs approach analysis, that “meaningless” description was the most disrespectful and exposed to some degree some jealousy/hate from Kendrick. There are so many ways of discounting curry’s 47 point performance without being that disrespectful!

                                              They didn't get KD because Steph couldn't close. It was because they wanted to chill.

                                                I think this dynasty is done as we know it. Too many injuries and everyone's older and maybe moving. Dont be surpised if this is it.

                                                      3 dynasties in nba history, 60s Celtics, 80s Lakers and 90s Bulls! 2000s Lakers and Spurs aren’t dynasties! Lakers went 6 years without a title and the Spurs went 7 years without a title! You need 5 titles in under 10 years to be an nba dynasty those 3 teams above did that and no one else has! They calling anything a dynasty to sell views and ads! Football and baseball is harder to win in, basketball isn’t! if you have great players, that are healthy, don’t lose them, team chemistry in basketball you will keep winning!

Smh. They act like those were the glory days. When u could cheat by hand checking grabbing jerseys and etc. Rodman is an hall of Famer off of dirty antics. And perkins I refuse to look up his highest point total game because it's irrelevant. Lol

I'm sure Draymond would be even more effective. Oh and these teams do foul steph the refs just don't call it. I remember when iggy hit steph in the nuts when steph came into the paint. It didn't stop him.

They all played back in the day. Your pride of ol skool basketball clouds your judgement and makes you irrational. Raptors all day!!!
