Daily Wrap: Sleep On The Warriors At Your Own Risk

steph curry warriors basketball forever

With Kevin Durant in Brooklyn and Klay Thompson in crutches, it would be very easy to forget about the Warriors.

But this is not a squad you want to sleep on.

Steph Curry projects to be a top-three MVP candidate without Durant by his side, D’Angelo Russel will obviously be excellent, Draymond Green was a monster to finish last season and Klay Thompson will likely return before the playoffs begin.

There’s also Kevon Looney – who is worth at least double the $5M per year Golden State gave him – and free agent signings Willie Cauley-Stein and Alec Burks.

And remember, the Warriors love nothing more than being counted out.

They are at their absolute best when they have something to prove.

It’s a troubling and inconvenient truth, but we haven’t seen the end of the Warriors just yet.
