Yeah. But I'd like them to be consistently let down by terrible backroom and coaching decisions, kind of like the new York giants. Every year, warriors fans would say 'This is our year, we could do something here' and then nope!

They’ll lose KD and Boogie after this season. Maybe Iguodala too. They could lose Klay, but that’s highly unlikely. They’re clearly on the decline.

But some other dynasty will step into their place in a year or two. That’s the nature of the NBA. It always has been, and it always will be.

Who do you predict it'll be? I've given up hope it'll be the mighty Houston rockets.

It depends on where the big free agents (KD, Kyrie, D-Lo) go this summer. Without any of them though, the Nuggets look solid. Their roster is young and their ceiling is clearly higher, and with a good coach (which they have) they could get there as early as next season. My surprise pick that won’t happen though? The Jazz land D’Angelo Russell who forms a deadly one-two punch with Donovan Mitchell, Rudy Gobert holds down the defense, and they take no prisoners.

At least if they lose now they can lose with dignity (unless game 6 is a blow out) instead of in 5 with the Raptors.

Could be that this is an unrelated injury...?

Remember, going into game 6, that the NBA admitted that the Raptors should have been awarded a penalty in the last 15 seconds - GS won because they broke the rules, even with KD

No one likes to see a team such as this go down like that, even if all it took were KD and Klay.
