I’ve been rooting for the Warriors strongly since Steph got drafted. I remember watching the draft and NYC being upset they didn’t land him. I know some of their history back to Tim Hardaway, Chris Mullin, and C-Webb. I’ve been a Steph fan. Some have looked at me like a bandwagon fan but I’ve been there, hearing about Steph Curry becoming the next Grant Hill. I heard he wouldn’t become anything but a shooting specialist. I liked the Klay Thompson pick up. Just look at what he’s become. Let’s not mention the Iggy deal, the David Lee & Bogut pick ups that made them relevant during their rise through the abyss, and acquiring Shaun Livingston. In hindsight, these were big moves, especially for a few of them who could’ve just given up on basketball due to injury. The way Livingston broke his leg was absolutely gruesome. Same for Bogut, I remember seeing his fall on his arm on constant replay… I remember like it was the day before yesterday. They draft Draymond Green and hope that he develop into something. I support him because he’s another man that successfully made it out of Michigan. You can literally be stuck if you play it safe and not want to leave to better your life. He made it! I heard things like, “He’s the next Eddy Curry. He won’t maintain his weight. Just watch.” They had no haters. They had not competed. No one believed they would be a threat. Then they began to take on the Chris Paul Clippers and the Tim Duncan Spurs, and they became better through failure. They fought through different sets of Steph Curry branded glass ankles and kept rising slowly. Mark Jackson developed them very well but even he wouldn’t be the one who would bring them to the promised land. They hired Steve Kerr. Steve Kerr changed some of the rotation and that led to them finally winning a championship! After all the criticism, jokes, quotes about them being too young, Steph not being the real MVP, and I could go on and on. They were told that they were a fluke, then they went on to win 73 games. Made the finals, lost Draymond to a LeBron tear, yes like crying tears, especially when he didn’t actually intend to hit him before the belt. I would’ve fought LeBron. He had much more court to use to avoid walking over him. What’s done is done. Which leads me to this… I’m sick of hearing about any LeBron team, and the Warriors. Maybe I’ll be interested when playoffs come. This article makes me sound like a GS fan. I was. I am. I want Durant to win a ring. I also wouldn’t mind my Pistons, Russell Westbrook, Boston, Carmelo, and even the Clippers, winning a championship. I’m just sick of the narrative that it’s only these two. Golden State could legitimately lose in the first round. That is how strong and unpredictable the west is. LeBron will be there, easy peasy. He’s now landed Deron Williams and Andrew Bogut. This is… Wait, I need room for this statement…
THIS IS THE BEST TEAM LEBRON JAMES HAS EVER HAD!
You better not lose. Golden State better make it. Right? The NBA world will turn on its head to any other outcome. I actually prefer the other happening this time around. It’s time that a new threat arise.
