For years, the Warriors have not even sniffed the playoffs, so I never cared much about the opening night hoopla where a championship team raises their new banner and celebrates.
But this year is different. The Warriors are champs and they will have that celebration tonight at home. I wish I could be there. But I will watch it from home.
However, the idea of this celebration has yet to sink in. Are the Warriors really champs and are they really going to celebrate with a new banner? I think now knowing that the target is on the Warriors’ back is real. But with all eyes watching the Warriors, I still haven’t wrapped my head around it.
I can’t wait to see the celebration. I can’t wait to savor the moment. And I can’t wait for the Warriors to try to do it again.
