Will the Warriors be able to win Game 6 without KD?

3 months ago

None were qualified EMTS. let alone physicians. A lot of pressure was placed on KD. The Oakland fans would have never forgiven him. His teammates would have hated him. The media would have executed him in the press. His team doctors, you would think the Warriors organization, would have at least one, never had a chance. They all should be satisfied with the results @Leroy Booker

GSWs lost KD and Klay as all-stars. Ask Cousins if he is the same player he used to be. Ultimate stupidity and selfishness to put those players out there while not recovered. Their era is over and it never had to end this soon.

Completely agree that they should have brought KD in at certain points. Bring him in for a few shots, for an emotional lift etc. G.S. ended up looking desperate and thus they dropped the ball. And agree, though I am a Raptor fan as I live in Tur-on-oh (lol), we took advantage of the situation and we won. Let's Go Raptors! This was a magical year for us and we not only knocked the monkey off our back but also the Drake curse is dead lol. :)

Injuries always part of Finals but this was 100% determined by injuries. 8 of GS 9 best players had massive traumatic injuries, so congrats Toronto but not since 1989 has injuries so thoroughly decided the chip like this.

Don't know about you but I don't trust that guy on that chair at 4:33

Was Kevin Durant the only player who play with injuries or there were several of them who does the same thing? Why can't we say the same thing with Klay, Iggy, Kevon Lonny and Steph with dislocated finger?

GOOD, NOW THE RACIST DURANT CAN BEND OVER TOO LEBRON

Raptors knew he was going to be vulnerable so they tried to attack him within paint all the time to try to limit his minutes. But warriors payed no attention to any of those and the first time he tried to do anything explosive, tragedy happens.

Yep no was there for KD 4:34

The truth? Durant wanted to play. That's all. Deal with it.

Durant is just a victim of Karma, he knows going to the Warriors was a weak sale out move, so now it is time to pay the piper, plus Toronto was going to win that series no matter what , they showed they wasn't scared , and had more heart, and will to win.

Whitlock is AN IDIOT !!!!!!!!!!
how does this fool get paid to be on TV ???

It’s time Klay and Kevin to spend those salary in millions to cure their injuries plus therapy and rest for one year maybe.

I think the injury was KD's fault. If KD says to the Warriors, ' I want to finish out my career with Golden State and sign a max contract for 4 or 5 more years', there is NO WAY Golden State allows him to play in that game.
They would not bet the next 4 seasons on that game. But, if KD gives off the vibe that 'I'm out of here after the series.', Golden State would naturally think, 'We absolutely need this win tonight. We don't know where KD is going next year. It's play tonight for us, or maybe never.

Steve Kerr is the only one i blame because he could have protected KD from himself by limiting him, if not just make him sit and play clean up minutes. The fact he let him start and run the entire time i will put this completely on Kerr and his desperation! And now this young man may face a morality of his career if he never returns to form. A coach is not there to just teach, but also to protect the players.

I totally blame the Warriors for what happened to KD. It was greed and they deserved to lose all the more for it.

TO was completely healed. He practiced for two weeks.  KD had one practice and by the accounts, he was struggling with his injury.   KD should not have played.

One thing is certain: Whitlock knows a lot about arrogance.

he gets paid to play basketball. it was the finals. not that hard of a choice

3 months ago

Probably a complex constellation of reasons played into it: ignorance and emotion, along with arrogance and desperation. But the bottom line is that this is a tragic outcome to the risky proposition of bringing KD back so quickly. Also, even just that one quarter that KD played - and played really well - was probably enough for the Warriors to stave off elimination. Sadly that win was a Pyrrhic victory!
