It was pretty obvious at the begging of the season after signing Demarcus Cousins, but things didn’t go their way throughout the season with many injuries and too many shocking loses.
Later in the post season, they lost Kevin Durant, arguably the best player in the world, and Demarcus Cousins, one of the best centers in the league.
Some reporters and sport analysts said it’s over for them after losing Durant in the series against Houston.
But then things started to click, and the Warriors went to beat the Rockets in 6 games, and swept Portland in the conference finals.
Curry was huge and had MVP like stats, Green was a defensive force and a triple double machine, and Klay provided lockdown defense and spacing the floor. They looked like the team that won 73 games 3 years ago, poetry in motion.
In my opinion, the absent of Durant and Cousins just showed the world that the Warriors is the best team in the world, and they can lose two all-stars to free agency but still be a force to reckon with.
