    This maw****a legit baby.

    Dragging Stephanie's mediocre ass with him, single handedly saving the warriors season in game 6 vs OKC.

    There ain't no debate brothas - Stephanie has been the 4th or 5th most valuable player for the Warriors the entire playoffs. And the hype machine can't save him no more.


    Heh heh heh.

    The house always wins, baby!

    he's too inconsistent. goes through stretches of 3-4 games (like he did in games 1-3 of this series) where he doesn't show up at all. then he'll have a monster game like tonight where he can't miss.

    Everything your saying about Curry is bull shot.

    That being said, Thompson has been a monster in tbe playoffs, and is deserving of the label superstar now, instead of just all star. It's clear, he can create and score at an elite level, I think Thompson could be a legitimate 1st option on a playoff team no problem.

    Warriors roster is so ridiculous, two maniac superstars and a mini Lebron without the offense in Draymond. Nuts.

    Curry is at 25/6/6 and is seen as a disappointment. That is star power.

    he's a 2 times ALL NBA...he's doing what he's supposed to do as a 2 times ALL NBA player just like Kryie and LBJ.

    Guys that haven't done what they are supposed to do:

    1.) Stephanie
    2.) Love

    STFU honey Bear, every time you posted a thread and Warriors always ended up winning the next game.
    Keep it to yourself.

    They're a good team. . . by far the deepest in the league. Doesn't negate the truth about their players and the inflated numbers their system provides

    Numbers aren't everything - impact is everything


    Thompson
    Green
    Iguodala
    Livingston

    have been impact players


    Stephanie , on the other hand .. has been exposed as an empty stats guy . One for the nerds to celebrate. The hype of ESPN and the clowns that follow it are on full display - that was the sole point the Ayatollah made.

    GSW isn't losing to Cleveland with Draymond back.

    I like Play Thompson.

    But he isn't better than Curry except being taller/bigger and able to defend on ball better.

    He doesn't handle or drive or pass nearly as well. And one thing people need to realize is that teams double team and press him all game long. They don't do that to Klay because ultimately Curry is the bigger threat because he can get other players involved. Klay OTOH is mostly a finisher.

    Don't forget the 3 rebounds, 1 assist, no defense and solid -21 for the game

    Klay can shoot and defend a bit. Curry can shoot better but doesn't defend. Draymond/Iggy/Bogut hide all the deficiencies. Great team. One can't do it without the other.

    Has Klay Thompson proven to be a better playoff performer than choker James Haren?
