Matthews gave up money to go to Dallas? Dumb move
For 1 he's a product of circumstance, he's not,anything more than a solid 3rd option, 2 Dallas is low key in a similar boat as LA, in that they SHOULD be rebuilding, but Dirk is making them pick up random FA's and,vets to make it look like they can "compete" ....product: 8th seed
It is different saying that stats don't matter vs saying that they matter more than championships.
But, Cosign on your last paragraph. I had the Dubbs in 6 before the series. What I have been saying though is that IF Lebron did win, along with those stats, you would have to give him his just due and entertain the conversation. For the same reasons you alluded to - he had no business winning this series with this roster against this team
And he is doing it dolo... Who does he have playing with him that is championship caliber?
Doesn't matter who he's playing with, when you're a frontrunner and consistently switch teams your destined to have a limited roster in some way whether it's healthy or not. Dude doesn't want to build with a team and let it grow around him which is fine but he and his fans have to know that some of the consequences of doing that is having to resort to a subpar bench if injuries occur.....All this complaining about injuries and the bench depth is a weak excuse because this is the route he chose. (Kyrie didn't randomly become frail this year)
