    The Greatest Rocket by [the distance from the original Gallery Furniture to First Colony Mall] (*if you don't get this, you aren't pure)

    Congrats to KD! It only took him 3 all star teamates to do it!
    What an accomplishment!
    I don’t see anyone on that list having more than 1 all star teamate!
    KD rose above adversity to become a real champion!
    His dad Adam silver must be proud.

    Kevin Durant, Lebron James, Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O'Neal, Michael Jordan and Hakeem Olajuwon?

    Hmm... one of these things is not like the others
    (hint.. it's the beta)

    Imagine how many Finals MVP awards Olajuwon would have if he had gone to play with Shawn Kemp and Gary Payton in Seattle after they beat him in the playoffs in 1993. **** Durant.

    I count two betas - the first two on the list. Lebron is the godfather of this generation of stars being obsessed with personal legacy, image control, social media, and the ends justify the means.

    Although maybe it was the Barkley/Pippen/Payton/Malones that prototyped this trend. Either way.... it sucks.

    In any conversation excluding "talent", Dream should never be mentioned with Durant. Hakeem was courage, Hakeem overcame, Durant is cowardice, Durant looked for the easy way out.

    Durant could've gone to 30 other teams and probably still would've eventually won a championship, instead he cemented his reputation as a snake, no number of finals or mvps or statistics will EVER take that away from him.

    He only faked an injury and demanded a trade just because management didn't give him a contract he wanted.

    Great leader/teammate too.

    As much as we all loved Hakeem, Its true that up until 1992 he had some moments we pretend didn’t happen

    Dream didn’t care about HIS legacy
    He cared about OUR legacy


    This is why I’m pissed Les didn’t pay him for his last season so he went to Toronto

    Sellout douche who was willing to take a big paycut to get his ring. Too bad other superstars don't take the paycuts aMIRITe?

    Too bad Stephen Curry will never appear on the above list. In fact he will never has a chance to win Finals MVP as long as KD remains as a Warriors.
    Curry will basically be modern day Robert Horry.

    Dream was a warrior and had a temper. It never bothered me. The change was good for him, though.
