    Is this even a question? Warriors can win without Curry. Cavs ain't winning games without LeBron. We saw how Cavs dropped 12 points (enough for them to lose the game) as soon as Bron took a rest for two minutes.

    Curry can outshoot LeBron with a hand tied behind his back, but he can't do all the things a 6'8" high-speed freight train can.

    This year RPM favors Curry again for what it is worth. Day in day out it's Curry simply because he's the better, more impactful offensive force and LeBron won't attempt to kick in his D until the playoffs. He can't sustain that level all year. So reg season, it really is Curry. Post season still LeBron until proven otherwise. What load the player carries is not what the question is.

    It's LeBron. He can simply do more on the court than what Curry can. As stated earlier he keeps it toned down in the regular season (which is crazy to think the ridiculous #s he puts up are toned down). I do feel like Curry can fit with more teams/players and LeBron needs the right guys around him but I feel like when both are going full bore LeBron is the better more impactful player.

    That's one statistic, dude. Literally every other advanced statistic of note favors Lebron. Take off your homer glasses for a minute, and I think you'd pretty easily see who the more impactful player was.

    It's literally an impact stat.

    It's funny because you would obviously endorse RPM as it favors Harden. Just take a look at the list of top RPM in the league this season.



    Jokic top three. Covington is top six. Lowry at #9. Oh, Korver at 20.

    2015-2016, Curry's unanimous MVP season, Draymond had a higher RPM than Curry. Guess he should have been the MVP of the team considering LeBron had the highest RPM that year.. and last year also.

    Not sure why people use one stat to justify their argument when anyone could use another stat to debunk it. RPM involves so much junk that it's impossible to truly value a player's impact. Sometimes, all you need are your eyes and it's LeBron James that is more impactful.

    Well even using RPM, Curry is 2nd and LeBron is 4th so itís still very close, close enough you canít say that Curry is ubdisputedly more impactful.

    Lol at Flashbolt's comprehension level of RPM. It's not a ranking. It simply measures a players impact in their role with teammates and opponents a counted for. Covington and Korver have been unbelievable one their particular roles. As has Curry as an alpha. And this is not just about this season, but over the last few. Playoffs are a different story though. He still has the most impact in them by and large.

    Question should now be: Who voted for LeBron that isn't a Warriors fan? As usual, lol,please creates the question but hasn't given any reasons defending his choice.

    Literally just had this conversation. It's not an impact stat, that's just how people try to use it. It's a forcasting tool.

    EDIT: I'm just going to write an RPM post. Even if no one reads it, at least I can just post a link.

    Not enough statistical evidence that Curry RPM is better than Lebron. Numbers to close to justify the difference and both sit in the highest percentile 99 percentile in the league.

    but hopefully we can use his expiring, if not at least we unloaded Novak's deal...
