Jake is a warrior hater lol. How many nba teams have drafted 4 All nba players that were on the same team? Of course you can’t draft your whole roster lol. Durant was a luxury signing. We went to two

Exactly, they drafted 3 all-stars, one an MVP, all outside top 6 picks.  And won before signing a big outside name like Durant.   So yeah it feels like piling on as they add people, but at t

Quite the stretch to say that Golden State is some home grown team. They deserve criticism, just like all the other superstar teams in any sport in any era.

 

Honestly, is rather see sports be uncapped and have teams like the Yankees just buy their championships. Salary caps aren't difficult to work around but if you have a superstar for less than market value (especially if they willingly do it to attract other players), that's much more difficult to counter than anything the Yankees have ever done.

Is it currently no? The team that started the dynasty certainly was. Without them none of this happens.

You do realize that's pretty much the case with every dynasty? There's vital homegrown talent on every championship roster

Vital homegrown talent meaning 1 star and a role player or two. Not 3 all nba quality players. 

So you guys are a 15 year NBA dynasty anomaly? Great. You're no different than other dynasties in most sports over all eras.

 

You're still a superstar team that will continue winning based on FAs wanting to jump on

 

PS - without top Free agents do you really think people would already chalk you up for a championship? Of course not

What a hollow uneventful championship team/dynasty. 

 

The NBA better hope LeBron takes LA deep. 

 

I assumed GS would sweep the Cavs in the finals and didn't watch after the first two games. No one would have watched if LeBron wasn't there. Will anyone care next year if GS sleep walks to another title? 

It's generally speaking an unwatchable product for me.  Thank god football season is on when the NBA starts.  The NBA is the LEAST COMPETITIVE of the 4 major sports.  MLB for all it's issues' has better competitive balance than the NBA.

Not fair lmao

 

Silver has to let SA come off Kawhi for a reasonable deal to LA to allow someone to compete with Houston in the West while everyone else is at Golden States mercy

LOL, get a clue.  LA doesn't have the pieces to make a deal and they blew most of their cap space on free agents.  The Spurs aren't just going to give away their best player for LAL scraps.

This is why no one here can take you seriously with all your homer bullshit. Kobe isn't even in the discussion for greatest of all time....:rolleyes:

I love how the topic had nothing to do with Kobe and he just snuck in that homer stuff.

Without top FAs we won a championship and broke the record for wins in a season so ya I think we would be the favorite to win it all most years.

Apparently Cousins' agent reached out to the Lakers with a similar deal as he got with the Warriors. The Lakers (and presumably other teams) had every opportunity to sign him but passed. It’s not the Warriors fault no one else wanted him.

Word also reached us Monday night that LeBron’s Lakers, after signing Rajon Rondo away from New Orleans and then losing Randle to the Pelicans, had an opportunity to sign Cousins at a one-year price point similar to the one that landed him in Golden State. But I’m told the Lakers passed, clearing the way for the Warriors to infuriate the basketball public yet again.
