The Golden State Warriors were in the midst of being a dynasty that would’ve been talked about for years to come. The franchise drafted Draymond Green, Stephen Curry, and Klay Thompson to create their own super team like no other team has done before.
Then, the team went out and signed Kevin Durant and it really cheapened what they had going on. That fact wasn’t lost on Golden State Warriors general manager Bob Myers who wasn’t that thrilled when the team won the 2017-18 NBA Finals.
“I’m sure a lot of people felt differently. It wasn’t anybody’s fault. I think there’s just a weight to everything. And so I’m sure [the Bulls] felt that weight of everything, weight of relationships.”
Myers is speaking here out of the context of “The Last Dance” docu-series, where he is comparing the experience of the Chicago Bulls during the 1997-1998 season.
In Myers’ mind, the Warriors were supposed to win the title, especially after adding Durant.
Durant’s first season with Golden State saw the team set a new NBA postseason record with a .941 winning percentage and a ridiculous 16-1 record en route to a title.
I guess it will feel all that much sweeter now that the team will be coming off a terrible 2019-2020 season and will be right back in the thick of things when Curry and Klay come back healthy.
