As good as the diamond w/duo

Written by Maur1c10

After I sold Diamond version on hardengate day, I feel really bad cause I had sold one of the best cards in the game, but thanks god Klay had a really good game 6 against Houston and obviously that was moments worthy game, with the duo with all star Steph, he literally becomes the 97 version, I know the diamond one has more total stats but most of the are the Rebounding and some passing stats out of that the shooting and the inside scoring are the same as the diamond and defensively he's a lock down just like the diamond and the difference of stats are 1 or 2.

Bought for: 94k MT

Strengths:

  • Outside Scoring: Obviously the best thing about this Klay with the Steph duo is the outside scoring, with the duo his shooting stats becomes the exact same as the diamond except for FT, but his FT is money so it's almost impossible to miss a ft with him, with 99 and 98 in most of his shooting stats and with his release he is one of the best shooters in game, a copy paste of his diamond but almost 3 times cheaper.
  • Defense: his defense is so fucking he can shut down any player in the game, again very similar to the diamond one, and he also has HOF defensive stopper so that makes him so much at locking down players, I have had games with him with 3 steals and 3 blocks.
  • Ball control: With the duo his duo goes up to 90 which is higher than the diamond, I can't say his playmaking is as good as the diamond cause he has -17 in passing vision or passing accuracy.
  • Athleticsm: Except for the vertical that stats are the exact same as the diamond, with his speed and acceleration he's really good at running plays, somehow he'll get enough separation to get wide open.
  • Inside Scoring: With the duo his inside scoring stats go up and become the exact same as the diamond so he won't have problems at attacking the paint also his layups animations and dunk animations are decent.

Weaknesses:

  • At least for me he doesn't have any weaknesses so for his price and if you have the all star Curry definitely try Klay with the duo, if you're worried about Curry's stamina use both as bench players.

Recommended Strategy: Definitely try to run plays with him especially if you have the magic of Celtics playbook, also catch and shoot in the corner.

Other Comments: (optional) I would definitely add the posterizer badge, the badging on him is really good so won't need a lot badges.

Use if: You want one of the best shooters in the game and don't have enough coins to buy the diamond version.

Don't use if: You need a player who can blow by the opponents, Klay is a kind of player that needs plays and stay in the corner for catch and shoot.

Bottom Line: For being an amethyst he's really goof, he definitely worths the money.

    Probably but I’ve heard that Danny’s release is bad, not as bad as joe Johnson or other players with weird releases but defensively Danny might be as good as Klay
