We have the best player in the world and playoffs rondo


And everyone else is generally untested. We have no idea if someone will Derozan the playoffs. Hopefully not, but we just donít know.

And so unless they have changed the playoff format to a 2-man game, Iím still curious to see who rises to the occasion and who succumbs to it.

Exactly, we have to earn respect, until then, we respect our opposition and fear them.

Fear may be a strong word but we are the underdog until we prove we aren't.

I think people are saying this team is going to be a 8-6 seed is because they don't know how big of a jump Kuzma and Ingram are going to make this season.

If they both play close to an all-star level, I think this team is going to go far int he playoffs.

Don't count your chickens before they've hatch.

Don't sell the bearskin before you've caught the bear.

The die hasn't been cast.

The final word hasn't been spoken.

It ain't over 'till it's over.

Don't put the cart before the horse.

Donít assume that youíll get the things you want until you have them.

It ain't over 'till the fat lady sings!

One must not be too hasty in one's rejoicing.

You never count your money when you're sittin' at the table
There'll be time enough for countin' when the dealing's done!

Imagine how annoying it would be for a team like GSW or Houston to have to play us in the first or second round instead of facing a cupcake team that they can beat in 5 games max.

That is why Iím the highest on Kuzma. Very, very, very few amount of players in this league can take over a game. Itís simply not an easy thing to do when you have a whole team trying to stop you and you succeed anyways.

Kuzma ainít gonna wet the bed like Clarkson. Kuzma has a Alpha Dog personality. Jaylen Brown wet the bed on the road too. Last season Kuzma went into Utah and Hou and put that work in

I donít think that OKC will be a pushover, or the Spurs. At least 4 teams can compete to face GS in the WCFs.

Excellent point, we shouldnít fear anyone (this is basketball, no one is going to blindside you like football). But we need to respect them.

I didn't know we got Kevin Durant.

Also, since I project that we'd be the seventh seed, I foresee a first round exit, although it it may go 6 or 7 games. The West isn't a cakewalk like the East folks.

Stop it!
If KD were a Laker, you'd say he's the best in the world.
I'm just echoing the same sentiments I always have since the 2017 finals. I do have Steph @ 3 however although I'm tempted to put Steph over LeBron due to Lebron's disappearing act on defense, which I do hope comes back even partially for the sake of the Lakers.

KD
LeBron
Steph
AD
Kawhi
Kyrie
Westbrook
Giannis
Boogie
Klay
Harden
Paul George
Chris Paul

I am sure a lot of people agree with you, but it is definitely a minority opinion. The consensus easily considers Durant the 2nd best player in the NBA behind only Lebron. I personally would take Kawhi over both of them....which is even more of a minority opinion.

I think it's impossible for us to beat the Warriors.
SA would be TOUGH since we have nobody to slow down Aldridge and they have the better coach.
OKC is a little more do-able. Everyone else in the West I'd consider US the favorite.

KD is not the best in the world. I buy that heís top 3, but #1 belongs to LeBron and this season will serve as a reminder of that.
