Why would the Warriors winning this year not be okay with you, if any other year would be? Would that be too much success all at once, in your estimation?
My brother who happens to be a Laker fan is constantly raving about Stephen Curry this and Stephen Curry that. Clay Thompson this and Clay Thompson that. Steve Kerr this and Steve Kerr that. Splash brothers this and Splash brothers that. Breaking NBA season record this, breaking NBA season record that. For somebody who is supposed to be a hard core Laker fan he drives me up the wall constantly non-stop about how great, how unstoppable, and how perfect the Warriors are. It has gotten to the point that I can't stand the Warriors. Then to add insult to injury I have to hear that same kind of talk on television sport shows and NBA shows.
If they were to lose this year that would make their record breaking season become less significant. If you don't believe me. Remember the record breaking undefeated perfect season the New England Patriots had. You notice people don't really talk about that record breaking undefeated season. The reason is obvious. They were defeated by the New York Giants in the Super Bowl.
The reason I would have less of an issue of the Warriors winning next year or some other year, is because it probably won't happen while they are having a record breaking season. Also, all of this nauseating raving about the unstoppable unbeatable greatest team of all time Warriors probably won't be as EXCESSIVE in a different season. Especially if the season follows a season where they failed to win the championship. It would be like eating humble pie.
I would say the single biggest reason by far, more than any other reason, I despise the Warriors is because my brother won't shut up talking about them sooooooooo damn much. If it weren't for my brother, who knows just maybe I might have been rooting for the Warriors. Don't know for sure.
One side note. Completely unrelated to my dislike of the Warriors. I really do want to see Kevin Durant And Russell Westbrook finally win a championship. That great dynamic duo finally getting over the hump is something I am truly rooting for. Man, I hope the Thunder win this year.
