  • In her daily monologue, Rachel Nichols recaps Game 2 of Golden State Warriors vs. Portland Trail Blazers Western Conference finals matchup in the 2019 NBA playoffs, and how remarkable it is that Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala -- who made a key defensive play on Damian Lillard -- have been able to play so well with Kevin Durant injured. Nichols, Brian Windhorst and Scottie Pippen then (3:33) discuss how long Steph & Co. can keep it up without KD.

                              Because klays injury fucked everything up. And looney was dealing with a collarbone injury. And iguodala had a sore hamstring/Achilles that he retriggered in game 1.

                            What if we could make Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant join the Utah Jazz go to them join them haha lol would that be funny if we all did?

                                  Kd is a condom for warriors. Feel safe but something weird when on. When off, you feel good but risky.

                                  To think Lebron and team beat them in 2016 and would had beat them in 2015 if Love and Kirie weren’t injured, that shows how good Lebron is.

                                  Warriors don't necessary need KD to win, but they need Steph more than him

                                  How could anyone forget? The Warriors really didn't need KD. He's just the X-factor to solidify that they keep winning. It's a symbiotic relationship. KD needed rings and did just that. But they can do it without him. And with Lebron's Cavs not in the picture, there is no legitimate challenge for the throne. That's why now that KD has his rings that he must leave and get his own team that needs hope, playoff contention, and a title to build upon his legacy and brand. He got those rings the easy way. It may not have always been easy but he got on the team that gave him the best chance for doing that. I don't fault him for it, but after the 2019 season, he has to pack his bags.

                                    The Warriors basically don’t even try when KD is on the floor. They lack the motivation and sense of urgency because they have such a big safety net to fall onto. Without KD, they really have to stretch their talents in ways no other team can do, that is why they’re better if not more entertaining without him.

                                          4:17. Goddamn, that ball movement,...you don't see it often when KD is on the court. I'm not saying they're better without KD. Its just incredible how they move the ball and how the players move around when KD not playing. 31-4 when Steph curry play without KD this season says it all

                                                    If they will continue to play like that, GSW will no longer sign KD just for Klay to stay.

                                                                        • the business handler

No other team can adjust better than GS. KD is a big loss and many teams will most likely to collapse if they lose a valuable player.
