    He's arguably the third best player in the NBA right now. Will probably surpass LeBron soon.

    He doesn’t look like he was running sprints in offseason.

    He never looks like he’s in great shape, but he rarely misses a game and plays a lot of minutes with a ridiculous usage rate. At some point, he is going to break down and the downside will be steep.

    Same reason I never ran a thumbnail of Schwarzenegger when he was the governator.

    I know everyone went down this road with early stage MJ and LBJ...but what has he won?

    Man, I guess Karl Malone and John Stockton suck. How about Charles Barkley? He's awful, too.

    A couple rounds in the playoffs? I kind of get the point that you're making - if you absolutely need to win a game, he has some weaknesses on offense that you can scheme against and exploit. But he's 25 and increased his PPG every year in the league, and he's now sitting at 29.5, along with 13.6 rebounds and 5.6 assists. His advanced stats are also excellent - he's not an intentional one man show like Westbrook in Oklahoma City. He plays a ton of minutes. He's clearly a Top 5 guy in the league type. Even if he isn't LeBron, he's clearly above the "all stats little pro success" tier like a Carmelo Anthony.

    Can you point me in the direction where I said he sucks?
