    Lol. Draymond burner account on RR? He’s Ringo, man. If Thad Young ended up on the Warriors, he’d have 4 rings too.

    And for all his DPOY-ness, Draymond wasn’t even the main defender for Lebron… that was Iggy.
    no man, just a guy who's watched the team closely since steph was drafted since i loved him in college, and he's long since become my favorite player.

    they've never deployed him as some sort of individual stopper to stick with opposing team's best players, and i never claimed they did. he's the connector on defense just like he is on offense, calling out rotations and switches and screens and generally running the show (like he does on offense), and also roaming around like a free safety. and he's the best i've seen play that role.

    anyhow welcome to the hall of bad takes golden!

      Sure, but as we saw with Lowry and Gasol, those super high IQ, connector, glue guys only get you so far when the make or break moments of the game arrive. The Kawhis, Stephs and Lebrons are what even gives those role players the chance to shine.

      You must be a drummer, because nobody watches a band and focuses on the drummer…. except other drummers. lol.

        i agree with all of the bolded but you're also not winning shit without those guys and there's tons of them in the hall of fame, deservedly so. like pippen is widely considered a top 20 or 25 all-time player, and i'd consider him in that vein. (people will point to to him "carrying" the 94 team and i will disagree). bill russell is another guy who was never the first option on his teams but did all the little shit to the max, and is widely considered a top five player of all time.

        not putting draymond anywhere close to those guys but i think it's equally absurd to look at the numbers and conclude the warriors would still have four chips if you replaced him with thad young or boris diaw or whoever. trying to evaluate his impact through stats is kind of missing the point i think, he's basically bring the "force" steve kerr is always talking about playing with, and "force" is not a stat. and they always seem to be winning when he's on the floor no matter who surrounds him, same as we did with lowry (lowry's a great comp for him actually).

        i have no musical ability whatsoever but i am a huge nerd with thousands of records and i appreciate incredible craftsmanship no matter what instrument is played! dave witte and jason roeder are probably my favorite drummers, with mac mcneilly, todd trainer, and jim white in the non-metal division.

        ringo starr was a totally boring drummer who brought nothing to the beatles imo, that band was all about the other three guys.
