    Kawhi a solid system player who has stunts of defensive or offensive streakiness

    OP might have been on to something, as Leonard's balls are a shriveling in the last 2 games.

    Mid with the baseball like take again
    Superior baseball minds win out vs. inferior TieTrot minds once again. Fred VanVleet is the unsung Finals MVP, while Nephew did his Matt Barnes thing as KL1 (1 meaning the best KL on the team), Siakam, and even fuckin' Ibaka did the heavy lifting. Also of note is Nephew getting outplayed by a 40 year old Andre Igoudala. We've seen this act many times as Spurs fans. Nephew is an absolute stud first 3 to 4 games in a series but fades when the series starts getting tight. And to be clear, he's not a choker. Just kind of one.

    Batting .980 or something. My CP3 take was my only swing and miss.

    Nobody should be bumping this shit. He had a very unimpressive series.

    Tell me where I'm wrong:

    But he definitely needs a big balls player as his wingman to hit big shots and turn in efficient performances when he reverts to that player that was outplayed by Matt Barnes.
    Exactly what happened tonight. The narrative from the helmet crew for 3 fuckin' years is that the reason Kiwi fades in these situation is because Tony, Pop, et al hogging his touches or doing something else that gets him out of rhythm. That was wrong. Kawhi fades late in a series. The difference here is Kyle Lowry is a much better player than Tony. Dude is a metrics monster season after season. They also have VanGOAT and we have the broken microwave.

    Let's see:

    KD injury, meaning the only player Nephew has to worry about is a 35 year old Iggy, who managed to outplay him in the biggest game of his career and in Toronto Raptors history.

    Klay Thompson on absolute fire. Of course he gets hurt.

    Fred VanVleet and Siakam turning into All Stars.

    Kyle Lowry outplaying who many consider the GOAT PG in his house.

    Before this opinion gets strawmanned, Kawhi is great. Probably top 20 player of all-time when his career is over. But people were hyping him up way too fuckin much over this run. He had a solid superstar post-season run. Not an all time great run by any means. You didn't fear him like 3 peat Shaq, Lebron, Jordan, '03 Duncan, where you just give up in figuring out how to stop the guy and hope everyone else sucks.

    Robert Horry is a 7x time champ. Kiwi almost choked away TWO games, and was bailed out by KL1, Siakam, and VanGOAT. These facts can't be argued against.

    Another one that passes Kobe on the all-time list.

    When the flying spaghetti monster comes calling for you where do you think Kobe be at on the all-time list? Probably outside of the top 50, tbh.

    And still fanboying him because you're holding out hope he's going to be a Laker. You should be angered, you should've wanted a Warriors sweep that would've disenchanted Kawhi. This increases his odds of staying exponentially. Yeah, players really don't give a shit about titles anymore vs. their brand, but bolting for LA after winning a title for an entire country is a bad PR move for his brand and will make Kiwi look like a diva. You can bet Dennis is evaluating it like this.

    If he stays, Boston doesn't rang. Esp with Killa likely headed to Brooklyn. It's all good.

    Kawhi wasn't great in the Finals(especially defensively, he was mostly trash), but can't deny his historic playoff run, probably a top 10 run of all-time..

    That's why it isn't a historic run. The Finals is where players make their marks, and getting outplayed by Andre Iguodala on a depleted Warriors team in the biggest game of your career isn't much of a mark.

    While with the spurs, Kawhi was known for his love of red apples. One time after practice everyone decided to go out for a team dinner. When it was his turn to order, Kawhi waived off the waiter and instead pulled out a bag of 12 apples. Coach Popovich asked what he was doing and Kawhi simply replied, "Apple time, apple time." He then ate all 12 apples with a knife and fork.

    I don't know about that, I'd have to look up comparisons..

    However, the perception will be that it's a historic run..IIRC, Dirk wasn't great in the 2011 Finals, but it's still remembered as an all-time run..

    I’ll have to crunch the numbers and compare them to other NBA Finals MVPs, tbh. The eye test showed me that him single-handedly taking over game 5 before the incomprehensible Nurse timeout was stuff of legend though.

    Well, if you want to say it's all-time great based on narrative in how the addition of Kawhi brought a city, whose other team's have famously choked or underperformed since Joe Carter, a much needed title, I can buy that. But going by on-court performance, I can't consider it a top ten run. It was a solid superstar run, something on the level of Duncan '07.

    Still went 9-24 in the game.
