THE GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS? GONE TILL NOVEMBER.
The Golden State Warriors should not be ashamed of themselves. This year’s version of the team won 88 games between October and early June, and they were involved in a tie game in the final minute of a Game 7 to win it all on Sunday night before falling just short. Was that game at home? Yes. Did that contest happen two games and six days following the first of the team’s three different chances to nail a clinching win and second consecutive championship? Sure. Is Warrior fatigue a legitimate gripe? I guess? Some teams don’t match up well with others. The embarrassing Chicago Bulls of the last two years give the Cleveland Cavaliersall they can handle in regular season games. This same Warrior franchise downed a 67-win Dallas Mavericks team nearly a decade ago after winning just about every other game during the regular season.
