Obvious troll is obvious.

We weren't embarrassed for the following reasons:

1. It's preseason when the coaching staff experiments with new schemes and novel personnel combinations.

2. Our 3 best players played fewer than 19 minutes each.

3. Our starting and backup centers are both injured, leaving us with a 2nd year guy, picked 30th overall in last year's draft and someone that won't even make the roster.

4. The 5 guys that played the most minutes are all in their 1st or 2nd season.

5. Why are you so intent on going out of your way to denigrate, discredit and undermine the Warriors?


I mean, I figured out this game didn’t mean sh*t to the Warriors after the first 60 seconds of the game when Curry heaved an absolute prayer (even for him) from 40 feet with 20 seconds left on the shot clock for no reason whatsoever and then laughed the whole way back down the court hahaha.

There's no shame in getting injured out of the finals.

Lakers beat the Warriors last preseason as well. In other words, this means nothing.

Believe it or not this is more about the Lakers to me. I’m stunned they tweeted a warning like this after a preseason game but have to admit they look good

Come on OP. Your takes on the Warriors are, as you say, embarrassing.




Like I told the last person, this was more about the Lakers tweeting a warning after a preseason game. They looked pretty good but not sure why they sent a warning in preseason

Be careful Lakers, it's only Preseason and injuries throughout the season can easily dethrone your team.

NBA team's social media accounts are always posting cheesy stuff like this. Total non-story.

sort of like Raptors fans boasting about Kawhi being there and refusing to believe he would leave if they won the chip.

It's kind of sad that a legendary team such as the Lakers with all those rings would get so hyped about winning the first preseason game over a team obviously in transition like this years Warriors. OTOH Kerr is probably elated beyond belief though, that the Lakers sent that tweet out so it will help motivate the team and save him a speech.

Ehh, I doubt it affect anything either way. Coaches tend not to make speeches after the first pre-season game. Not much of an unexpected result. The 2 guys that would've been tasked with guarding AD were both out.

Either way, it's a transition year for the Warriors anyways. No Klay for most of the season and they're young, undersized and have a lot of inexperience on the roster. They'll probably get killed defensively most of the time, anyways, even with the 2 bigs they were missing last night.
