Ben Simmons shoot a 3 you coward
Its the Kawhi shot.
Kawhi just won a title with an unstoppable midrange game.
Let's ignore Kawhis defensive impact, his ability to shoot all over the court, and the rest of his teammates. It was purely a mid-range two that won him the title!
You are right. It is more complicated than just midrange and a 2 way superstar like Kawhi is worth his weight in gold.Let's ignore Kawhis defensive impact, his ability to shoot all over the court, and the rest of his teammates. It was purely a mid-range two that won him the title!
The best formula for a playoff contender is versatility in offensive game, and the ability to play two ways. Tatum lacks any type of versatility, and doubling down on the one thing he was already good at (shooting) did not work out for him, the Celtics during the regular season, or the Celtics in the playoffs, and his defense is fairly mediocre as well. Kawhi played within the system fairly well too which is also important.
If mid-range shots were the most viable thing, then DeMar Derozen would have multiple finals MVP's. Kawhi didn't shoot those shots because he wanted to, it's because offenses are designed to give those shots to players who play a lot of iso.
Kawhi is easily one of the most versatile scorers in the league next to Durant.
In fantasy land the reason the Raptors won the title wasn’t because KD and Klay got injured. Mid range is fine if you get to the line in addition to it. If you don’t do that you’re not a good offensive player. Period.
Curry is more protected than LeBron? Explain this please?
