Curry and Durant want Warriors stay

Pammachio Corsino | 18 Giugno, 2017, 02:57

Golden State Warriors' Kevin Durant smiles during an NBA basketball news conference on Wednesday, June 14, 2017, in Oakland, Calif.

Even though the Warriors beat them rather easily, the Cavaliers are still a super team and LeBron James makes them one of the best teams in the entire league.

Cue more complaints from disgruntled fans: "Ugh, too easy, no drama, no excitement like last year's Cavs upset win".

Normally, that would be a major concern for a team of the Warriors' ilk.

The big question this offseason is what, if anything, will contenders like Cleveland, San Antonio and Boston do to counter the champion Warriors.

NBA fans on Twitter didn't forget and have been rubbing it in after "the king's" fifth NBA Finals loss.

Yet, this is the result of the astuteness of the franchise in drafting their rookies.

Guard Shaun Livingston told 95.7 The Game in February that "definitely wouldn't go" if his team was invited to the White House, according to KNTV. It was behind their unselfish style of play that they were able to put together arguably the most dominant run in the playoffs in league history.


"There's a respect for the institution, for the office; there's a respect for our government that I think you have to take into account, regardless of people's opinions of the person sitting in that chair", he said.

Another Cleveland player, Iman Shumpert, was more direct, saying in November, "I'm not going to the White House".

Long-range three-pointers to quickly-taken shots to pull-up jumpers - once viewed as poor shot selections - have become potent weapons under the Warriors, not to mention devastating tools to demoralise opponents who had tried to defend them well.

Curry, Kevin Durant and their teammates are determined to build a dynasty together - and they might just be well on their way. "But, obviously as a team, we're going to have a conversation". We have the parade, we just won a title.

Where, then, can they eventually stand among the pantheon of great National Basketball Association teams?

And if he and the rest of the Warriors have their way, for years to come.

That Lakers team had five titles, two of them back-to-back in 1987 and 1988, and eight Finals appearances.

Curry is not the only member of the Warriors organization opposed to the views of President Trump.
