Warriors fans celebrate at parade with expectations of more to come

Here's why Steph Curry was smoking a cigar when he went on NBA TV Here's why Steph Curry was smoking a cigar when he went on NBA TV

Samson had Delilah wielding a pair of scissors.

The 2016-17 National Basketball Association season is now officially in the books, and we're sure to see a summer-long trolling revenge tour by the Golden State Warriors, who wasted no time giving LeBron James and his Cleveland Cavaliers a taste of their own mocking medicine after reclaiming the Larry O'Brien Trophy. A former player, as was Kerr, Lue started coaching as an assistant with the Boston Celtics in 2009, and then with the L.A. Clippers in the 2013-14 season. The Warriors did not do the same for Barnes and Ezeli, who were two of the primary casualties when the team signed Durant this offseason, something they had been planning for at least two years.

As if the Warriors - the same Warriors who'd just choked up a 3-1 lead and a second consecutive title to the Cavs - were already all but guaranteed a ring in 2017 and Durant was just hitching a ride with them.

The next team was the 1996 Houston Rockets. It's blamed on his players having a bad game.

Once the predictions turned out to be right and the Warriors won it all after making quick work of LeBron James and the Cavaliers, the naysayers re-emerged. It means very little, and as one caller said to me on my call-in show, it is designed purely to hype the series and sell tickets. The 2011 Draft had players such as Derrick Williams, Enes Kanter, Tristan Thompson, Jan Vesely, Bismack Biyombo, and Jimmer Fredette taken before Thompson. He has a year left on his contract with IN, and it's not certain he would re-sign with the Pacers when he becomes a free agent. The result? A 67-win team that finished with a 16-1 record in the playoffs. "I wanted to add value to the group instead of crushing the group and forming another one". Curry met the criteria and can receive a five-year deal worth about $205 million.

The Warriors' Andre Iguodala was less subtle, when asked before his team's title-clinching win Monday about a potential trip to Trump's White House.

Curry, Kevin Durant and their teammates are determined to build a dynasty together and they might just be well on their way.


It's all about Durant. Among the pressing things to address in order to boost Cleveland's chances of prevailing over the Warriors in case of another showdown next season is the acquisition of wing and point guard, the same SI report said. His long-term durability remains a concern, but his basketball IQ and willingness to play within himself ensure he'll have a home on the Warriors so long as they can afford him.

Will LeBron's eyes wander elsewhere if they again fall short next year?

What happens to the supporting cast? "I remember plenty of times throughout my career, I continued to look in the past or look ahead, and not stay in the moment". David West has already been playing on minimum deals since he left IN two years ago, and Zaza Pachulia couldn't ask for a more comfortable cocoon to draw a paycheck. It's 20 years and counting since they last missed the playoffs, with the Spurs always a threat in the postseason under the guidance of probably the best coach in the game in Gregg Popovich.

The Warriors had entirely too much firepower for the Cavaliers to keep up with. Their offensive wizardry draws all of the headlines and highlight and attention with so many playmakers.

They are called the Golden State Warriors, but they don't belong to all of California.

Often the unraveling comes about due to egos and an individual star's desire to outshine the rest.
