Injuries are part of the game and out of the control of the Golden State Warriors, but they haven’t faced a whole lot of teams at full strength these days. They won their championship in 2015 largely because they were facing a depleted Cavalier team, missing two of their major stars. Now in 2017 they are destroying a Spur team that showed that they were formidable before their star player went down. The Warriors are a good team but they have been fortunate along the way to stay healthy and capitalize on the non-health of other teams.
2) Steph Curry’s Contract:
It isn’t often that a two-time MVP is making only 12 million a season, compared that to the 22 million Chris Paul is making in the same state, Curry is one hell of a bargain. Curry exploded talent wise at the perfect time for the Warrior organization and they were able to build a formidable squad around him while he was peaking. It is amazingly fortunate that a player of this caliber isn’t even on a max contract but the Warriors' luck in this department may be out because Curry is due for a max extension in the off season.
1) Durant’s Decision:
No one on the planet Earth would of thought Durant would leave his beloved OKC Thunder in the first place, and no one definitely saw him joining his rivals in Golden State. Especially when you consider all the verbal jabs that Durant and Westbrook took towards Curry and company in the 2016 playoffs. The Warrior organization likely had Durant hook after only one meeting with the star. Durant could have been the team's biggest obstacle for years to come but now he is an ally--fortune at its best.
