The only people worth a max-contract this year : Kawhi Leonard, KD, Kyrie, Kemba and Klay.

Achilles or ACL, which is more likely to end your career? To be frank, both made very dumb decisions to play injured, as free agency was their immediate future. Business is cut throat. Neither should rest easy till their name is on a max contract. IJS!

That would be a great storyline. Warriors lose, in the finals, pretty much the entire team. Both Klay and KD spend a whole year rehabbing together while new guy Cousins works to fill those shoes for a team in crutches and prove he's still an all-time big. Then the return of KD and Klay, whenever that may be. And with it the possible return of the Warriors as we knew them. The dream

So...Stephan A?  You're sayin' @3:02. "There's a level of camaraderie within the GS Warriors team and organization. KD likes to do his own thing. He's more independent. He does his own thing not involved with the Warriors". *[Sidebar...U also said @3:10. "According to the Warriors. I don't know this. KD hasn't told me this".] Then @3:33. You give examples of how "Draymond has been in meetings and draft rooms and workouts and stuff like that. Just showing up at the facility"???. WTF U TALKIN' BOUT????? I mean...4real, 4real??? WTF!!! ARE U TALKIN' BOUT????? U really gotta alot of hate 4 KD. It seems pretty personal??? Pretty petty & pathetic.

Warriors with a healthy splash bros. and stronger bench wins that series in 6. They would have pushed it to a game 7 had klay not went down, despite the threadbare bench offerings. I'd be OK if KD is shown the door by the dubs management.

If KD stays he will definitely ruin his legacy and career, aww come on man, you cant be that much of a cupcake to stay ridden GS nutts. They dont even need you, if Klay plays game 2, 6 and 7 in the finals they could have won. Stop it KD, you need save your self and lead your own team. You looking soft as fuck right now.

I'm all for loyalty to their players but lets step back and look at this from a nonemotional standpoint. When Durant returns for the 20/21 season, there are absolutely no guarantees that he's going to be remotely the same player. In fact, its highly unlikely if you look at past players who have had the same injury. Guys like Rudy Gay, who injured ruptured his achilles when he was same age as Durant is now, hasn't looked like the Rudy Gay we've known before the injury. If they give Durant the max, then that would be $85M down the drain as he'll miss his first season completely, will more than likely work himself back in the second and probably won't contribute much or play a significant amount of minutes. Klay on the other hand is a different story. An ACL surgery isn't a death sentence to a career. We all remember what Adrian Peterson did after he tore his ACL and MCL. It may effect Klay's lateral movement defensively, so he may not be as good of a defender anymore. But Klay's game has never been built on speed or worldly athleticism. He's crafty like a Chris Mullin. He'll still be able to play to his strength, which is to drain the three pointer and he's projected back after the All-Star break. I would give him the max and hope that Durant signs elsewhere.

Gotta keep Klay, but they should start to look at trading Draymond. He gonna want max $, he not getting it with GS. So, trade him away for a solid player and pick or a good draft pick. idk about offering KD a max, now that he hurt, he probably gonna just pick up player option for $31.5 mill, and be a free agent next year.

Tbh if the Warriors are smart, then they gotta try to tank for a top 10 young solid draft prospect for next season. Kd is out, klay is out. No need to Steph and Draymond to play 110% effort. Let them relax for a season, get a a bit og a high draft pick. They can even trade that pick if they dont like somebody for next year. Because when Kd and Klay comes back, they wont have a high draft pick chance for next 4-5 years. This is their chance to land a good rookie player who can develop amongst these hall of famers. And the warriors are good at developing their draft players .
