There is one thing the defending champs have looked this season – unstoppable.
It feels like everyone has stopped criminalising the Warriors but instead have turned to supporting them. We don’t see beef about Kevin Durant in the media and analysts debating if anyone (like the Rockets last year) can dethrone the Dubs. But it almost seems like the fans are cheering for them to show how incredibly dominant they can be.
We could be witnessing the greatest team to ever play.
Forget Michael Jordan’s Bulls, the Larry Bird and Bill Russell Celtics, the Showtime Lakers -and even throw Kobe Bryant and Shaq out. The Warriors are legit, and if they can keep the same core group, I can see them winning five or six titles at least.
No other team has had four franchise players on a single team, period.
They seriously look better than ever, and barring injury, I really don’t think anyone can come close to competing with them, and that had me thinking. Could they beat their own 73-9 regular season record? And become the first team to sweep the playoffs?
It looks like they have everything figured out, and I figure that back-to-back championships certainly help that. But they look like a different Warriors team this year and they’re so incredibly fun to watch.
Some nights the big four will play less than 30 minutes each just because they blow teams out so quickly. And we’ve seen what these guys can do in a short amount of time.
Firstly, Steph Curry is having another MVP calibre season and is currently leading the league in scoring despite having to play alongside the second-best player in the world and two other all-stars.
Kevin Durant is just amazing and completely un-guardable, maybe the most un-guardable player ever due to the fact he is seven-foot and he does what he does.
Klay Thompson has shown he is no one to mess with, breaking his own team mates record by putting up 14 threes in a game – not to mention it only took him 26 minutes.
Draymond Green is top three in assists and has not only spoken, but proven that he is out for that second defensive player of the year award.
And they have another all-star by the name of Demarcus Cousins waiting to come back from injury, and if he comes back just 70 per cent of the player he was.
Oh man, now that is really scary. And to be honest, I cannot wait!
Who cares if they are completely stacked, stop saying they ruined the league because they made it better! I’m certain that the NBA fans from the future will be incredibly jealous that we get to witness this team play, and they did it the right way.
We live in a world where we get to witness possibly the greatest team to ever play, so enjoy it while you can because it’s more fun if you do!
