People talk about them like they are a legit title contender. Uwutm8? Once Memphis gets healthy GS is probably gonna miss the playoffs. Never seen so much hype for a mediocre team.

Lmao at underrated. People have been putting them in the title discussion all year long for some reason. Just because they are fun to watch doesn't mean they are a good team brah.

Curry can single handedly win playoff series

And you're a potato if you think the warriors won't have a competitive series with literally any team in the league

They are absolutely underrated based on current record and regular season performance. The evidence of this is that everyone who comes into this thread will agree with you.

This... I do NOT think we're contenders at this point in time. We have a borderline superstar in curry, but who else do we have? Lee is decent and klay can explode at times but he's incredibly inconsistent. Our bench is fckin pathetic. Iggy was a smart pick up for the defensive side of the ball, but the reality is that we still need a few pieces to be considered serious contenders. Get rid of MJax, get a legit two way center and some good shooters and we could have something good.

When the Warriors are hitting on all cylinders there is no one that can beat them.


Unfortunately they are very hot/cold and they lack that legit #2 to Stephs #1 to make them a serious title contender.



That being said I think they are the most exciting team to watch.

Please, in the NBA you build teams through FA, not the draft. This is not the NFL, the talent pool is incredibly limited and the odds of you building a championship caliber team through the draft are slim. inb4 Sonics/Thunder; they got pretty lucky that they snagged durant instead of oden and westbrook turned out to be as great as he is.

You have a point. When everyone is doing well offensively, it seems to drive up their defensive prowess as well. If they're at home it also helps. They were literally a ginobili prayer shot away last year from beating the spurs. They're so inconsistent though, they can't sustain that kind of play but for a game or two. Last time I checked, series went best of 5 or 7.

really? because the lakers, celtics and spurs have consistently been dominate throughout NBA history and people still watch

the fact of the matter is, a handful of teams will ALWAYS be the best, and once you are the best its hard to stop being the best considering you will always have the most talented people wanting to play for your team, you generate the most revenue and yada yada and most of all you have the reputation

Don't forget the Bulls in the 90s too.

But yeah you have a point. I don't like the Miami model and teams trying to copy it, but every team in the league would add 3 superstars if they had a chance. And teams buying a championship have failed more often than they succeed, just this year and last year alone we had the Lakers with Dwight, Brooklyn and the Knicks trying to buy a title and having it backfire in a huge way.

That's what I'm saying. All the talent is pooled into a few teams, and those teams are laughably failing. Would have been better suited surrounded by a young team. (Think rockets). Nets, Knicks, lakers. Joke.

Not every game will be played to the best of the teams ability. The team that plays good enough defense to make up for offensive woes will win a best of 7 game series. Don't think GS has it in em.

Warriors defense is a lot better than their offense

In terms of defense they are solid, in terms of offense they are only solid when curry puts team on his back and goes bananas, which is what will guaranteedly happen in playoffs

W's far away from being a contender right now, however they have the talent to be soon.

New coach, post presence off the bench is required. I'd love to get rid of Dlee's contract a long with Harrison Barnes for something big.

But i still lol at the hate the sports misc has for the warriors.. none of the warriors fans are aggressive/phaggot posters and they're one of the funnest teams to watch.

You'll all eat my balls when they finish the year strong with an easy schedule and over perform in the playoffs again.

It's f*cking hilarious hearing the GSW phaggots claiming they were championship contenders based off a playoff series win against a team without their best player.

Then after a few losses racked up the excuses were 'wait for the playoffs'

Then after a few more losses racked up the excuses were 'wait until iggy the best FA acquisition and the only FA we ever truly wanted gets back'

Then when the Ls begun racking up with Iggy back.. I'm actually not sure what their excuses are now.

'Just wait until the next time we make the playoffs' maybe?

You do realize a little over 2 weeks ago the Warriors were the hottest team in the league right? Teams in the NBA go on hot and cold streaks. The Warriors are going to make the playoffs, probably as a 5-7 seed, as they will pass the Suns, Mavs, and Blazers. IF they play to their potential in the playoffs, they could easily make the conference finals.

And lol at the people ITT who are saying they don't play defense. Their defense is stronger than their offense.
