The only credit you get from me Max Kellerman is for being a buster. It's obvious the way KD was cooking before he went down to injury nor Kawhi or anyone else was shutting down KD. In fact KD was on his way to scoring 30-40 points the way he was playing and that was coming back from being out for 5 weeks.

Fred Wilson maybe, but injuries are part of the game and if you had a more balanced lineup with good bench support maybe you’d be able to win without your star...

Kawhi needs to prove more than that at his pinacle of his game not just one or two finals game. And goes for KD too.

KD drained 2 threes right in Kawhi face, he was finnin' to put 30+ right in Kawhi eyeball. Dude is a killer im so angry that we couldn't see a healthy kd vs a healthy Kawhi it would have been an epic showdown, all we got was 1 qrter and KD won that.

..And Max is so utterly ridiculous that he says that at least 5 other players in the NBA are better. 🤡’s statement MK. CLEARLY Max has NEVER played pick-up basketball. Where are these other players at when Lebron has 1st pick each year in the All-Star game? Who does Lebron pick? Lmao. Omg. To make a comment like that completely renders EVERYTHING else you say about basketball meaningless.

@Cjbeast3000 Whos KD? Some guy who got shut down so hard his achilles got torn off? Raptors played pity defense on KD and he still got his achilles destroyed. Talk about ankle breakers.

Cjbeast3000 3 months ago
@David Lin So you didn't watch how KD dropped 11 in 12 minutes while clamping kawhi. He bust 2 3s in kawhi face while double teamed on another one. A 70% KD outplayed kawhi in one quarter and was looking at around 40 points. Kawhi sleeping happy that KD didn't play and he got another ring

The real question is, if the Warriors were up 3-0 or 3-1, would they have cleared KD to play?

Well,well, well, now we see that the calf injury is now for sure an Achilles injury NOW! I didn't even watch game 5. When I saw K.D, I was like" oh well, there will be a game 6, seriously. To wake up this morning, see 105/106, with headlines " Kevin Durant, achilles injury! All I could think was, that so sad. I am sure he knew this was the risk he was taking for the game he loves so much. Athletes take risk All the time. This may well have been his last game in the finals with the GSW. One thing is for sure, when that achilles is back to normal K.D will be THE PLAYER that another franchise will pay big time money to have on their roster. I loved watching him as a young player on OKC with Westbrook, Harden(I was a fan) I wasn't a fan of his move to the Warriors. I really felt the Thunder could have beat the Warriors with the combination they had. All this just to say, I am truly a Kevin Durant fan now. I have watched footage of this guy without any fancy foot work just play what I see as just down right PRETTY basketball😲. It's like poetry in motion. I am over the decision he made to go to an already well oiled machine. The fact is in my eyes, right now, he should go down in history as a top 10 all around GREAT ballers. Achilles injury or not, that's a Baaaaaaaaad MAN!😘Thank you Stephen A. for the training😉

How do they fail to recognize the discussion they created themselves. Everyone who say Warriors is better without KD say so because of how they play without KD. They play faster and harder and both these idiots have said the same thing....

Well, now what!? Kawhi didn't shut down KD, even on a bad wheel... but it's all moot! I think it should be clear... Max isn't worried about Kawhi getting the credit... he just wants to fuel the fire of hate for KD!

Max Kellerman please step down and bow down to the "W"....cause WE DA WEST HOMIE. with all due respect Kawhi didn't know how to act with KD on the floor ate his lunch and if he finishes the game would have taken his girl if he got one. You want cho cornbread Kawhi? Pahahaha.
