Balls-Eye: What if Warriors Play Big Games without KD?

Kevin Durant

It's not as though Kevin Durant is a piece of offensive machinery. Well in fact, even most highly calibrated machine that currently exist needs to shut down from time to time.

The Dubs seemed to be fine without Steph during Hornets game as Kevin Durant exploded and leveled up his performance from best to ultimate.

Well, Steph and Durant are both powerful players yet very much different in style, playing different roles in the team.


So what might happen if Kevin Durant will be the one who's unable to play?

There's a lot of lingering possibilities but the bottomline will be a weaker Warriors squad. Warriors may revert to a team which the Cavs had beaten in the finals -- the time before they have acquired KD.

Durant averages 25 points a game and him unable to play will diminish offense this much. Or so it seemed to be?

Steph averages 26 points a game but Warriors still managed to win so its not as though the absence of a player with a high point average would dramatically decrease a team's firepower.

But it's just averages we are talking about. We all know that a game isn't just about scoring but about a holistic impact instead. A strong player's presence is enough to shaken up an opponent if you really are a monster on the floor.


Now which has the holistic impact?

Well, It's Steph offensively knowing that he directs the plays and dish out passes plus outside shooting but it is KD defensively, of course a bigger man would weaken the defense. KD's presence inside intimidates the opponent's slashers and without him, the small guys on the other end would have the esteem to penetrate and have a chance to score easier.


Conclusion

Steve Kerr said that Curry's absence is good for the team in the sense that other players have some room to step up because of the open playing time Steph left. Now Durant being the team's ace like Steph, Kerr could've said the same thing.
