The Warriors have to thread a needle here that, history has shown, is extremely difficult. I’m saying if they pull it off, it will be INCREDIBLE. I’m pushing back against those intimating it won’t be big deal to keep this going.
This isn’t about Steph/Klay/Dray. They’ve done their thing and will do their thing till whenever. It’s about how hard & complex it’s going to be for the Warriors’ front office, given cap situation and personnel, to keep this thing humming at high level instead of slow fade.
The issue isn’t whether Steph and Klay will be able to shoot it. They always will. It’s matter of losing quickness, which makes shots more contested and difficult, resulting in drop in efficiency. No player has ever been immune to this as they age.
My dude @Wittnessed (Brian Witt to the uninitiated) flexing his pen in a logical manner.
“Left to his own devices at the grocery store, (Steph would) fill his cart with popcorn and other junk food. ‘My wife just side-eyes me the whole time,’ he says, laughing again. ‘I have to grow up a bit in that department.’” 😂 https://t.co/dtvfOpc3TQ
Klay Thompson & Draymond Green will be 31. Curry 33. That window getting real tight -- unless Myers can do improbable of drafting young star to usher out Big 3 while ushering in next run. Not impossible but ridiculously difficult.
I get that rest is good for veteran players. But can you imagine if next NBA season doesn't start til March 2021? That would essentially mean Steph Curry and Klay Thompson didn't play nearly two years of basketball in the primes of their careers.
Will Joe Lacob put more $$ into the Warriors' payroll with so much financial uncertainty? I'm not sure, but when you have a % chance at another championship and you're as rich as the Warriors, I think the pull will always be to spend a little more. https://t.co/JzLdVZr7KI
