Golden State Warriors: Why The Star-Studded Team Won’t Make It To NBA Championship

Undeniably, the Golden State Warriors has the most powerful roster to date. Need a team ask for more when the already superstar-studded league has Stephen Curry, Draymond Green, and Klay Thompson plus Kevin Durant’s recent entry make them the strongest.

Everything seems to be perfect not until they dropped Game 1 of 82 in a disappointing style at the hands of Kawhi Leonard and the San Antonio Spurs to the tune of 29 points.

Rolling Stone described their very first loss as “The internet really enjoyed seeing them lose the first game of the season to the Spurs.”That’s painful huh. Any fan of the Warriors will really turn into dismay and sadness with the big slap of reality. Well, as the song goes, “Even the best fall down sometimes...”

In fact, the defeat of the Golden State has caused the squad into one big meme paired with hilarious trade rumor jokes. Many took to their Twitter accounts and jokingly noted Durant asking for a trade to the Spurs.

However, positivity reigns as the world’s most influential leader, President Barack Obama isn’t affected of the alarming failure of the GSW in the opening of the 2016-2017 NBA season.

ESPN related the thoughts of Obama during a Friday interview on "Sway in the Morning" on Eminem's SiriusXM channel Shade 45.

"I'm going to go with the Warriors just because of [Kevin] Durant, that addition. I think they just have too much firepower. Although they just got spanked in their first game, so it will take a while to figure things out."

The president’s statements are crucial. Surely, the Warriors will not cause further disappointment to Obama and to their millions of strong supporters on a global scale. They have more than enough time to get up and continue their biggest fight in nabbing the mmuch-coveted title as NBA champions.

Their forthcoming games will be closely monitored in the keen eyes of the audience and their opponents. The pressure is getting more intense as they have to catch up and better their best. Moreover, they are expected to unleash their stunning playing skills.

The Golden State has what it takes to be a winner. Aside from its impressive list of superstar players, the squad possesses the right attitude and loyalty. Stephen Curry, dubbed as “The greatest shooter in NBA history”remains humble and understanding despite being attacked with his low salary. The point guard’s salary is too behind from Durant’s two-year contract reported to cost the GSW $54 million.

“Next off-season will be the point guard’s first time as an unrestricted free agent and early trade rumors have linked his name to the Los Angeles Lakers due to his strong relations with his former coach Luke Walton. It was noted that Walton has the capabilities to ink a deal with Curry but there are very slim chances of seeing Curry leave his team of seven long years,” a source said.
