You know what’s so funny? I have just as many Finals MVPs as Steph Curry.
Last Seasons Record – 58-24 (2nd)
This Seasons Record – 62-20
Love em or hate em, but I’m glad that we made em. Look at that photo. That’s the best starting 5 in the history of the league when fully healthy. By the best, I mean it has the most talent this league has ever seen. That is the greatest shooter of all-time, the best hype man since Dennis Rodman, arguably one of the best two-way players this league has ever seen, and a top 10 shooter of all time. The most dominant big man since Shaq and a snake. All jokes aside, Kevin Durant is the second best basketball player on planet Earth. I failed to mention they have one of the leagues greatest coaches and a terrific bench, boy they really make it easy to hate this team don’t they.
Key Additions and Subtractions
BOOOOOOGIE!!!! Does this mean I have to hate DeMarcus Cousins, my favourite player in the NBA? So the Warriors got rid of Zaza Pachulia, but no worries because they got a nice little upgrade. They also added Jonas Jerebko, who is actually a solid rotation player if I’m being honest. But clearly the big story was the Warriors who have won back-to-back titles and 3 in the last 4 years got DeMarcus Cousins. Who is coming off a really bad achillies injury, and probably won’t play again until February? Post-All-Star break perhaps? Look it’s going to take a while for him to get accustomed to how they play and everything, but the team that just won the title is adding one of the best players in the league, it’s just getting unfair at this point.
Year Long Question – Is this the last ride for “these” Warriors?
Look, all good things must come to an end. Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened. Klay, KD, and Steph are all coming to a close on their current contracts. Klay could be heading to La La land. KD could be off to NYC, Steph could go home to Charlotte. No one knows what the future holds for this team, I don’t even think the players themselves know what’s in store. Klay Thompson maybe wants to be his own man, or run alongside LeBron James. His Dad won titles with the Lakers, there is history with that franchise in his family. KD got his two rings, now maybe he wants to go rule New York. I’m curious to see where this thing ends up, but one thing is for sure. Draymond will be left all along crying in a parking lot somewhere.
The sea is parting, clouds are dispersing, cats and dogs living together, mass hysteria. Good old Dragon Ball Z, remember Cell? The perfect fighter. His last form was “Perfect” and I feel like this encompasses exactly what the Warriors did by adding Boogie Cousins. Cell at his second stage was good enough to already beat anyone and now they are adding a perennial all-star. Everyone is in big big trouble now. Now, who is going to be the little shit teenager that comes along and teaches this guy and lesson? Will it be the young guns over in Boston? Maybe the Dinos to the North? One thing is for sure, Cell became perfect and got cocky, and well, looked what happened to him…….
Bold Predictions, Sponsored By Nate – The Warriors don’t win the title
What could I possibly be bold about with this team? Like Steph Curry grows another arm out his ass or something? Seriously, it’s not even fair anymore. This team is a cheat mode, and unlike last year when everyone on their roster had won a title (that mattered), they didn’t have that killer drive or motivation. Now with Boogie on board, you know how much these dudes are going to want to get him that ring? They will be playing for Boogie, and Boogie will be healthy and fully rested and he’s going to be hungry. I fear this team, everyone should fear this team. Bad things are coming to the league, and I don’t know if anyone can stop them. I hope so because we don’t need them in 5 straight finals. I’m hoping for someone to knock them off their throne because that will truly be a spectacle to behold.
