I'd rank Kemba ahead of Klay for sure, especially given the premium on scoring PGs. Maybe ahead of Cousins, too, because Kemba will never be a coach-killer.

Am I on planet Mars where folks would rather have Kemba, than the best shooter in the NBA who plays lockdown defense?

+1. Kemba is a great scorer. Klay is one of the more underrated player in the NBA (though not even the best shooter on his own team).

*2nd best shooter on his team, who has the aid of the best shooter in the NBA, the best scorer in the NBA and the best passing big man.

I would not want Klay Thompson as my franchise player

I just think this argument is bunk, basically every #2 with a superstar would fall into it. 

Plus, didn’t say he could be a #1 on a championship NBA team, because I think that list is only 7 or so deep (healthy Kaawai, Steph, KD, AD, Giannis, LBJ, maybe Harden).

But dude would be near the top of my list for a #2.

Jimmy Butler was a nice and humble kid when he got to MU.  And he's got a great story of rising above overwhelming odds to make it huge.   Then he allowed the toxic attitude and ego of vast majority of NBA stars that enable him to become the giant douchebag he is today. 


Jimmy isn't the problem.

He proved his point in practice and by doing so, he has torn the team down to the ground. Last night was as bad of an effort as you will ever see.

Is Klay really the Warriors' second best shooter? Would anybody on this board choose him over KD to take a game-winning shot?

I like Klay. He's a fine two-way player and a superb shooter.

Kemba has improved every year he's been in the league, is coming off back-to-back All-Star seasons, and is just entering the prime of his career. So far this season, without a Steph Curry to help him, he is shooting 45% from 3 and averaging 30 ppg early. I'm hoping the Hornets find a way to keep him after this season.

As I said earlier, for me it depends on if one puts a premium on the importance of the PG position. I certainly wouldn't say those who contend Klay is better than Kemba are "wrong."

I agree with this.  They need to trade him out of there.  Thibs should never have been put in personnel control of an NBA franchise.

Watched the Bucks for the first time last night.  The emphasis on ball movement was evident.  Oh, and playing  Bledsoe and Brogdon at the same time should have been done last year.  They are just fine together.

And I didn't know they had signed Pat Connaughton.  He's not going to be big every night, but that guy is going to play a role on this team.  Really bringing him and Snell off the bench really gives you some diverse options given the situation. 

Not saying they are going to win the east, but they are much better coached and have a much better roster than last year.  Still think they need one more guy - but maybe not!  Should be fun.

It's very early.  But Monday will be an important early measuring stick.

Lame!

Edit: Just read Giannis is in concussion protocol.  So not lame on his part. Kawhi still lame.

I went to the Bucks / Wolves Friday. It was brutal.

Going to Lebron at Wolves tonight. I expect ugly things from both teams.

This just has the makings of something stupid happening, doesn't it? JFB trying to prove everything to everyone going up against LBJ, LBJ's band of combustible merry pranksters looking to take offense to everything, both rosters littered with indifferent youngsters.

The 1982-83 Lakers, who lost in the NBA Finals, hit 10 three pointers the entire season.  Magic went 0-21 for the year.

Klay has 14 tonight.

Damn, did Lowry have some bad oysters before the game? 3 for 14 including 0 for 9 from deep? Whatever the defense he was doing it worked.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,

Klay says scoreboard.

Just messing with you for the record.
