Shocked to hear Klay has a torn ACL. After seeing him running in the hallway, I thought he would be fine to at least finish the game. Torn ACL is a surprising turn of events. And I’m legit wondering if GSW would even make the playoffs next year.

Oh wtf. Unbelievably bad luck for the Ws stars.

This is why the threepeat is so hard. That much court time takes a toll. Hope Klay comes back strong.

They really need to shorten the season to 50-60 games. No one will agree to it though because it means less money.

GSW will be interesting next year as Curry will have to carry the team by himself.

Lebron gets criticized for losing in the Finals all the time, as if single-handedly dragging a team of role players to the Finals is so easy.

Not a cap expert by any means but will they have some money to sign someone? Assuming Durant and Cousins don’t come back.
A new era or error?

i'm not a warriors fan at all, but i feel bad for them with klay a lot more than durant.


klay was a GSW guy, with curry and draymond. i hope those 3 come back and play well for years.

don't want them to win championships anymore (as long as lebron, westbrook, and harden don't win them instead), but they've helped transform the league from having a "Big 3" to win a championship, to being homegrown talent that's brought up correctly helping to win.


plus, they're entertaining as hell to watch (more so before durant and cousins). my mom hates the **** out of all sports, especially basketball. but she knows who curry is and loves watching him

lucky or not, they are the champions. Kudos to the team.

GSW were lucky in 2015 when Kyrie and Love were out
