isn't that all 30 teams? Injuries throughout the season can easily derail ANY team.

Ehh I thought it was funny and that's that. Hopefully it becomes a new NBA meme. I hope when some random team like Charlotte ends up beating the Lakers because their key guys are resting that their social media tweets the same thing. I'm here for the memes. It's obviously pre-season but give the people something to cheer for I suppose.

I loved it when I saw it cause I know it’s going to make for some EPIC trolling material if they have a bad stretch of games or their season is disappointing in any way.

Like imagine if they loose to a tanking team or get really embarrassed in some way - or even miss the playoffs again? - clever people on the internet are going to have a field day using edits of that tweet. Hahaha!

For a franchise as illustrious and successful as them and a franchise who had a great offseason and has a bright immediate future I thought it was lame and thirsty as hell.

But it surely helped that the Dubs were without Looney and Cauley-Stein to counter AD and Javale. And no Klay, or KD, Iggy, Livingston, etc. So It's not like beating them is a major feat at the moment and something to brag about on the internet imo.

I don't care too much for the tweet but it's sports and trash talking is part of the deal. Just as long as they don't mind people digging the tweet up later in the year if/when things start going badly.


I didn't like the tweet. It's admittedly below the standards of a team that has won many titles. I don't know why whomever wrote that thought it was a good idea. Smells of Millennial fanboy, Linda R, or tipsy Jeanie. Low rent stuff. Preseason is the most low hanging fruit possible. I wouldn't even have wanted that tweet if we had won the 1st RS gm against the Clipps. I'll get over it for sure, but it was just... "Dude........"

That literally should've been the tweet.
