Colin Cowherd: “Steph is a small guy and took a beating in that series and he looked worn down. They threw bodies at him when Klay & Durant got hurt and Iggy was hurt too. That’s why he recruited Kevin Durant. Magicians need assistants… The art of distraction. When KD and Klay are out, you’re just throwing too much length and too many bodies at Steph. POINT GUARDS DO NOT WIN TITLES. It’s why I like Zion over JA Morant. Steph, James Harden, and Russell Westbrook wear down.”
Listen to Colin Cowherd explain why the art of winning NBA Finals Championships comes down to big guards/forwards like LeBron James, Kawhi Leonard, and Kevin Durant, and has little to do with masterful yet undersized point guards like Steph Curry, James Harden, and Russell Westbrook.
With Durant and Klay Thompson sidelined for the Golden State Warriors in Game 6 of their NBA Finals series with the Toronto Raptors, Steph was ultimately voided from the equation by a box-in-1 defense Toronto ran that severely hindered Steph's ability to shoot at a high percentage... A defense made popular in high school to limit a slick-shooting perimeter player that doesn't have much outside help.
Check out the audio above as Colin explains why little guys can never win championships by themselves like a big guy can.
