Actually, I'm going to change what I said. You CAN build around a great defensive player, provided they are a big man. They can anchor your defense. Being a great perimeter defender is good and all, but no matter how great an individual perimeter defender is, they aren't going to make your team great defensively on their own.

That's a strawman argument.

give him a break, he just started watching the NBA this year. Clearly and asspained GS bandwagoner. Anyone who actually followed the NBA knows the Spurs don't even keep the same "system" for more than 2-3 years at a time.
>>
>>65093950
i agree that the Spurs offense allows people to be offensively efficient, but they also play at the 25th lowest pace in the league. because of this, im sure he would average 20ppg basically anywhere else as well. if spurs were fast paced like in previous years he'd be at a 23-25ppg clip easy. hes also by far the best defender in the league, leading the league's #1 defense, #3 offense and overall #1 team. They've won something like 12 games this season by 25+ points. I don't think he's the best player in the world, and I don't think even at his peak he will reach LeBron at his peak or hell, even Kevin Durant's insane MVP season, but he's an elite player and has a good chance of winning an MVP some time in his career.
>>
>>65094027
He is a role player who can shoot well. He's not a true offensive threat. He can't really create his own shot. No team is looking at him closely on the scouting report. He simply gets the most goodness out of Pop's system because Pop likes him the most (for good reason, of course).


>>65094033
I did because I am a Laker fan and a Kobe fan and he has given his heart to the league. Coaches vote for the best players. Fans vote for who they want to see. Problem?
>>
funny because virtually every other superstar is a bigger system babby because their system is "just let the star take 100 shots and do whatever he wants even though it hurts the team and we'll never win a championship"

aka Melo, Harden, Kobr, Dirk (except the one year they actually win the championship - that tell you something?), etc.
>>
>>65094082
>Kobr
>Never win a championship
>>
>>65094081

>He's not a true offensive threat. He can't really create his own shot.

Again, call me when you've watched an NBA game since 2013 dumb casual.

He's killing teams while on the floor with lineups mostly made up of guys like Mills/Simmons/Marjanovich/Anderson as 80% of the other team's defensive focus.
>>
>>65094081
youre basically saying scottie pippen wasn't an elite player. if you honestly think that, then i can at least accept your point, even though it's still really stupid.
>>
>>65094095
you mean the years when they didnt' go on the chuck system because they had a dominant efficient big man / big men that shot 50+? Ever season Kobr has been the crux of the offense they've never won a championship.
>>
>>65094081

>Laker's fan
>Literally doesn't know shit about basketball

I guess stereotypes exist for a reason
>>
>>65094081
my dog, do you watch basketball? a role player who can shoot well? He shoots well and plays elite defense my man, that is what superstars do. have you seen the sickass turnaround jumper he started shooting this year? he's also a beast at transition offense. He's elite, and he hasn't hit his ceiling yet. Be scared.
>>
>>65094108
Difference is Scottie Pippen lead the Bulls to the ECF and almost to the NBA Finals. I'm not sure that Leonard could do the same.
>>
>>65094137
Leonard could lead any team to the leastern conference finals.
>>
>>65094106
System.Babby

>>65094108
Except Scottie wasn't just a great defender. He was a great offensive player as well. He is the reason we have the idea of a point forward. The Bulls were still a very good team without Jordan because of him.
>>
>>65094081
Kawhi's been working on getting his own shot this season, though it's still in progress since this is the first year where they've really started asking it of him. He's can get to the basket pretty well or can also take the midrange baseline. Only problem is he still has difficulties with double teams when he's committing to driving

Guessing you haven't watched him much this season, but you will see tonight when he torches the lakers en route to another 20pt victory
>>
>literally shooting over 50% in a system 20 ppg
>people believe if you run the offense through Kawhi that he's gonna drop off his PPG somehow
ayy lmao this meme
>>
>>65094143
It wasn't the Leastern Conference in the 90s
>>
>>65094144
>your casual is showing

You build a system around a great player, not the other way around. The Celtics is what you get when you try and build a system without a great player.

Not to mention the Spurs system now is basically "let Kawhi and Aldridge dominate" and only playing the pass-happy system from 2013-2015 when they're out of the lineup.
>>
>>65094143
Not if he was playing against the teams of the 90s.

>>65094137

Psst spoilers: He already did. And won finals MVP.

>>65094176
>he already led his team to the ECF

do you? The West is far harder than the east and he won a championship having to go through a much harder path than baby Bron.

>>65094188
Lebron has four MVP titles, two championships, and has been to five consecutive NBA finals

Leonard went out in the first round last year against the Clippers

Leonard will never average 27 7 7 for his career, he will never be Lebron
>>
>>65094176
He didn't lead them to the WCF. That's like saying that andre iguodala lead the Warriors because he won the NBA Finals MVP.
>>
>>65094201
Lebron has lost way too many playoff games in embrassing fashion to seriously make this arguement.
>>
>>65094231
If Lebron was on the Spurs he'd have won more titles than Kawhi, Leonard will never be on his level, especially with Popp, Duncan, Manu and Parker inevitably leaving.
>>
>>65094163
>>65094170
Modern Western Conference is also very tough. I would also argue being an elite defender is harder in the post hand check era.
>>
>>65094231
Leonard also hasn't had to play 5 on 1 in the playoffs either. I mean the first time he went to the finals in 07, it was basically him vs the Spurs.
>>
Biggest systembabby ever is Duncan. Kawhi is actually one of those players who would be decent anywhere.
>>
>>65094260
I don't anyone is saying that the West sucks. They're just saying that the Eastern conference in the 90s isn't the eastern conference of today. Leonard is a great player but he's not going to will the Spurs to a finals.

Duncan would've been good anywhere. It's just that you;re too young to remember duncans hey day. His longevity and continued usefullness at this age are a product of the spurs system. However young duncan (his first couple seasons) was just a raw talent with good court vision. If he had gone to anywhere he would've developed into a great player. However him being a cog on a team that can win a title this year? That's all on the spurs.

Nope.

Kareem couldn't rebound our care enough to play D. Duncan is no where near my top 5 & Lebron is my #6.

Lebitch would have 0 rings if not for Miami's system. Is he a system babby?

>because there is a system in a team, everyone on that team must be garbage without it

This is either the shittiest bait or the dumbest actual opinion I've ever seen

He IS the system in San Antonio. It doesn't work without an elite 1v1 defender. Although as an added bonus, he's also a highly efficient scorer who can drive as well as create his own shot from anywhere on the court, and also a talented passer.
>>
>>65095029
seriously. I think underage b&s think the way the Spurs played from 2012-2015 was the way they've played forever. The entire Spurs offense for the first 6 years of Duncan's career was basically

>Get the ball to Duncan and let him dominate
>occasional kickouts to the 3&D guy

and when Parker stopped being a liability, letting him create a little.
>>
>>65094201

>Leonard will never average 27 7 7 for his career, he will never be Lebron

by your reasoning Lebron is inferior to Oscar Robertson. Except even the Big O never played in as embarrassingly an easy conference like Lebron does.
>>
>>65094201
>Lebron has four MVP titles, two championships, and has been to five consecutive NBA finals
In the weakest conference in NBA history for his career, and only winning after joining/poaching two of the very few legit franchise all-stars in said weak conference. And has still lost twice as much as he's won in the finals.
>Leonard went out in the first round last year against the Clippers
And Lebron was beaten so badly by Leonard that he fled back to Cleveland. Leonard also plays in the West where there are actual playoff teams. 7th seed in the West would be 1st in Lebron's conference, and his Cavs wouldn't even make it out of the first round most years. Also
>2-4
>advanced stats

>Leonard will never average 27 7 7 for his career, he will never be Lebron
That's because he doesn't see the need to stat pad and plays something called defense.

And Butler's efficiency is no where close to Kawhi's, although he's the only perimeter player whose D is comparable.

this makes literally no sense at all. playing defense doesn't mean you can't be a product of a system or stacked team
