    Btw, what had Anthony Davis won before this year? He’s really good and in his prime, but had he even won a round in the playoffs before this year? I’m not going to look it up, but I don’t remember him doing so.

    This is the first time LeBron has had a legitimate top 5 teammate. Wade was good, but he wasn’t an ideal mix with LeBron and he was fading after their first year or two together.

    He swept Portland in the first round as the 6th seed.

    Was there for the 2 games in the rose garden. For as much as the blazers are trashed here, that Pelicans team was shit and had no business doing what they did. It was mostly AD with a little help from Holiday and Rondo.

    He was a top 3 player before this season and Lebron was correct to get that trade done and create a mismatch for which the league has no counter.

    But again, he always has to sacrifice a shit ton of depth on every one of his teams.
    He’s still not top 3. LeBron, Curry, Giannis, Durant, etc. Hes one of the best but Giannis,Durant, Leonard are all bettter. Harden, George, Westbrook, Embiid, Doncic. Davis is good, but we can’t overrate him for being one game away.

    I would build around him over giannis and leonard. I would maybe consider durant and doncic. Durant might not give a fuck anymore anyways. Those other guys you listed are headcases and disappear against playoff defenses.

    LeBron, Giannis, Kawhi are the top 3. Davis, Doncic, and probably Curry and Harden after that. Davis a fringe top 5 guy, top 10 for sure. These lists are hard because it depends who else a team has.
