What Now for the Warriors?

Eleven months ago, in an article detailing why the Boston Celtics were the favorites for the 2019 NBA title, I labeled the Golden State Warriors; dynasty as ‘fragile’. While my praise of the Celtics proved to be excessive (I wasn’t the only one), this description of the Warriors’ dominance proved to be correct, although I did not envisage it being a literal one.

The Golden State Warriors and the Toronto Raptors have emerged as the best team from their respective conferences, and now it’s time to figure out which team is the best team in the entire league. To reflect on this crazy postseason and preview the Finals, a few of our scribes have to come together to talk about it.

Playoff Preview: Golden State Warriors vs Portland Trail Blazers

Playoff Preview: Golden State Warriors vs. Houston Rockets

Last year, the Golden State Warriors needed a Chris Paul injury in order to eke out a Western Conference Finals victory against Houston in seven games. This year, they showed weakness in a first-round series for the first time in recent memory – needing six games to advance past their first-round opponent for the first time in the Steve Kerr era. Meanwhile, James Harden is heavily involved in the MVP conversation for the fourth time in the last five years after putting up historic numbers and his team finished their first-round series against Utah in a convincing five games. Yet none of that seems to matter.

My Follow-Up on Demarcus Cousins

For anybody who read my DeMarcus Cousins piece on TheScorecrow, available here, they would know that I believe he is not as big of an asset to the Warriors as analysts make him seem. In my debut article, I asserted my idea that Cousins’ Achilles injury may render him almost futile to the Warriors’ organization. With Boogie making his debut for Golden State against the Clippers on January 18 with 14 points, 6 rebounds, and 3 assists in 15 minutes, this follow-up piece will substantiate or negate the predictions I previously made about him six months ago.

The Definitive Winner: ’96 Bulls vs. Present-Day Warriors

This week, the Golden State Warriors look to get back on the right track end their three-game home skid.

Recap: Warriors Beat Kings in Possible Game of the Year

If you love to watch top-notch scoring and three-point shooting, this game was for you. Stephen Curry led the Golden State Warriors with 42 points, including going 10-20 from behind the arc. Buddy Hield did his best to keep the Sacramento Kings in it, exploding for 32 points and setting a new career high with 8 triples in 13 tries.  Justin Jackson set a new career high with 28 points, shooting 10-14 from the field. The Warriors continue their quest to break seemingly every three-point record there is, combining with the Kings to make 41 for the game, a new NBA milestone.

I Was Wrong: How the Western Conference Has Blown Me Away

At the beginning of the season, I made various predictions about the Western Conference. Like many other NBA fans, I have been blown away by how the Western Conference has panned out. The Golden State Warriors falling apart, Carmelo Anthony leaves the Houston Rockets, and as of right now the Los Angeles Clippers in the top of the standings?!

The King Returns: Lakers @ Cavaliers Preview

LeBron James will make his return to Cleveland tonight. This will be his first visit to Quicken Loans Arena since joining the Los Angeles Lakers in free agency this past summer. LeBron was booed mercilessly in his first return game against the Cleveland Cavaliers as a member of the Miami Heat in 2010. His return this time is sure to be different for one big reason, LeBron kept his promise.
