The narrative says that Warriors fans are spoiled. Even though a good portion of these fans have been through some ugly years for the past two decades, we are reaping the benefits of one of the greatest chapters in NBA history.
These Warriors pulled off the most impressive playoff run in history. They defeated a great team with arguably the greatest player of all time. Of course the Warriors are also stacked with talent themselves.
You can argue about how the Warriors were a shoo-in for the title after signing Kevin Durant. But that’s not the narrative. It’s not even about avenging the 3-1 collapse from last year (and the following memes).
This is about the journey of a team that is playing a brand of basketball that is so beautiful. The offense is on another level. The defense is top notch. The coaching is superb. The chemistry is beautiful. The goal was achieved.
Complain all you want about the super team that the Warriors are. But don’t you realize that you are witnessing basketball at one of its greatest stages? We may never see anything like it. And if they can keep this up, we may be talking about all-time great teams. Maybe they are already are that. Time will tell.
But for me, I am just happy. It was a long journey but also so satisfying now that it is complete. And they did it at home. Even better.
I cherish this. I cherish this forever.
