Reread what I wrote, I said those who can admit to wishing their decline into existence have integrity. It's totally understandable for a rival fan to do so.
Those without integrity are the ones trying to undermine the Warriors success over the last decade by claiming it was all luck or some such BS. We've achieved what we did through great drafting, great FA signings and great coaching. You don't go to the Finals out of the stacked WC 5 years in a row without all those things and I don't think it should be too much for a fan of another team to acknowledge.
It shouldn't be hard for writers at The Ringer to acknowledge either but here we are.
Yeah I'm 100% with you. Sure we had a crap season this season, but we didn't have 2/3 of our main stars and we jettisoned a whole bunch of our team.
You can't just ignore what is arguably the best or second best 5 year run of any team in history.
I will ignore it. If you guys don’t luck into KD you might have one ring, one finals loss, and possibly that’s it.
Your most recent transaction was trading an all star in D Russ for Andrew Wiggins and you haven’t hit a draft pick in like 7 years. A main guy (West) in making those decisions is now gone.
Curry/Klay/Wiggins/Draymond don’t scare people as much as prime KD, prime Curry, Prime Klay, and prime Draymond (plus Iggy and whoever else).
Again, if it wasn’t for KD, you could be a one time champion. You deserve no more respect than any other one time champion because as far as anyone is concerned, your KD titles mean nothing to how your team is now, and it means nothing to Kerr or Myers as HC’s or GM’s.
The psychology of some Raptors fans is fascinating. You're so insecure, I'm embarrassed for your sake to witness it.
We are one of the greatest dynasties in basketball history, consecutive Finals appearances second only to the Boston Celtics when the NBA was in its childhood. It took brutal injuries to two of our starters for you to win and we still came within a couple buckets of forcing a game seven.
After all that your star still left and now it's all over for you, back to mediocrity and the treadmill. No chance to prove you belong in the conversation as a dynasty, doomed to be forgotten as a single line item among the league's great franchises with multiple championships.
