Watching ISO ball is incredibly boring for many.

Wow. I give up.

Who are these "many" that you are citing? Sorry... I've taken away your NBA fan card... wait... your basketball in general fan card too.

ISO ball is actually part of team play... it creates opportunities and mismatches. When Covid "miraculously disappers"... I'll show you someday... it will be "fun" for me. :)

Again...you confuse effectiveness with fun.

Oh by the way..how is Harden working out in the playoffs when he doesn't get the calls?  Oh right...

The second is fact...Steph is a better and more consistent player than Lilllard...stats prove it.  Lillard is a great player but Steph is better.

Steph has had a better team than Lillard every single season of their careers.

You're linking irrelevant cherry picked stats. If you want to talk individual skill, isolation stats are more relevant: https://stats.nba.com/players/isolation/

Look where Steph is on the list for creating his own shot versus the rest of the NBA. Facts prove that Steph has always had a better team and offensive action to help his game.

Why would Steph play in ISO?  Steph plays in a team offense...

Steph creates an incredible amount of gravity that creates numerous opportunities for his teammates.

What you mean? Rockets up 2-0? Harden still shooting 9 FTs a game and averaging 29 PPG.

So again, what did you even mean by your comment? Just wanted to say something for the sake of writing something?

The first comment was opinion/bias...my own.  Just talking about why Steph is beloved by many because they can identify with him.

The second is fact...Steph is a better and more consistent player than Lilllard...stats prove it.  Lillard is a great player but Steph is better.

I hate defending qwerty ( :) ) but he did say "overtaken" which does mean "recency" and thus career stats don't really prove anything. I think Steph is an overall better player than Dame too... but Dame did make some highlight shots this season (including sending PG13 home last year's playoffs)... what has Steph done this year... oh wait... injury and didn't make the bubble. Out of sight... out of mind.

Ever see Harden drive and the defense collapses and he behind the back passes to a teammate for any easy bucket? Or juke steps a player and then sidesteps and puts it in their eye (which is what you like from Steph). That's effective AND fun.

Sure... past history has shown he struggles in the playoffs... but I thought we were talking about fun. You keep flipping back and forth between different things.

Back to Giannis... isn't that why the Lakers have Kostas on their G-League team? Backdoor deals. :)

Is that like how Lakers got Pau Gasol..by trading Marc Gasol to the Grizzlies?

That's ok with me.

How do you think they pulled off Kawhi AND PG13? :)
