    The Golden State Warriors are currently 55-14 and while they remain top of the Western Conference, Steph Curry and some other teammates have come under fire after a few recent losses.

    Other than this, the loss of Kevin Durant has proved to be a significant hole that is hard to fill, even though the Warriors squad is one filled with a variety of talent.

    KD is one of a kind.

    Stephen Curry, the three-point magician, is under in increasing pressure and now is being dubbed by fans and media outlets as ‘overrated’.

    The two-time MVP is a pleasure to watch but has had some seen some rough patches in the past few weeks. Although Curry scored 28 points in the Warriors win over the Bucks, are we now seeing the real Steph?

    My best guess is no. Curry is incredibly talented and probably the best shooter the NBA has ever seen. What we have been witnessing is human. What fans saw the past two seasons is not.

    Mistakes, errors, missed shots and what not is acceptable. It happens, to athletes or not. Steph Curry has been dubbed with a lot of names but I wouldn’t say ‘overrated’ is one of them.

    Durant, the former OKC Thunder gun, is now out indefinitely until the Finals where he may or may not make an appearance. The Warriors won the NBA Championship without Durant once, they can do it again.

    KD is one of the world’s best players and also a pleasure to watch. Let’s see how his injury plays out, but for now injury is something you cannot control.

    GSW is one of the most talented sides the NBA has ever seen. I can’t predict if they’ll take out this year’s season’s NBA title, but I’m sure they will go close.

      Spurs might have something to say about that.

      Winning without Durant? Unlikely IMO. I’m far from certain this GSW team gets over Spurs or Houston in the Western Conference. This current team without Durant is nothing like the team who reached the finals the past two seasons. They have had to give up too much to land Durant. No Andrew Bogut, no Harrison Barnes, no Mareese Speights, no Leandro Barbosa. all very important role players during their two years in the NBA Finals. GSW have reworked their whole team to fit Durant and his talents in, now without him, they will struggle in the Westerm Conference, before having to match up with, most likely, LeBron and the Cavaliers from the East.
      Golden State can win the title without Durant? Its most unlikely. Impossible with Curry putting up bricks from beyond the arc for the last month. Curry is different this year. His game has suffered to accommodate KD. If its GSW VS Cavs in the NBA Finals without KD, I think the Cavs take it easily this time. 4 – 1
