That one Draymond 3 in the 1st half.

Might have been a 3, but it was counted as a 2.

Ummm WHAT?
Even without KD their roster consists of 3 Hall of Fame players
2 of which are the greatest shooters of all time
1 is an all time great defender

It’s an exaggeration but they literally have only two threats on the offensive end and both are jump shooters.

Raptors can dare the rest of the team to shoot or make a play. Only Green can when Klay/Curry create the spacing and he can’t shoot.


Sounds more like the Warriors have been reduced to being a contending team instead of a lock to win. Not a lot of contending team's rosters look that scary once you look past their top 2 scorers. That's just normal lol.

Warriors are lacking shooting around Curry/Klay, I'll give you that.


The Warriors would have more depth or scoring if they never signed Durant. That’s the issue. Being top heavy (with him injured) makes this a 2 man game offensively.

I doubt he even hates him as much as he tries to make it seem. Skip is literally a professional troll, he's made a s**t load of money doing it, it's an art for him.

How different is that team really from the championship Warriors?

Not like they featured more scorers with that core.

They had Durant and prior to that better depth scorers and better versions of Iguodala and Livingston who could score.

Anyone claiming the warriors have consistent scoring other than klay/curry and depth with Durant missing are delusional. They are underdogs now.
