In the past three seasons, the Golden State Warriors have had a 73-win season, they've earned two NBA Championships, and have appeared in three straight NBA Finals.
There's no denying the amount of talent that is currently on that roster in Steph Curry, Draymond Green, Kevin Durant, and Klay Thompson but it appears that sometimes, the media and fans show sporadic moments of doubt if the team happens to be missing crucial pieces of their line-up.
This time around, the Golden State Warriors are heading into the 2018 NBA Playoffs at the second place slot in the Western Conference without their starting sharp-shooter, point guard in Steph Curry who suffered a grade 2 MCL sprain on March 23rd and most likely won't return from the injury until/if the Warriors advance to the second round of the playoffs.
After winning their initial game against the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday afternoon, Draymond Green addressed the doubters alongside Kevin Durant during their official post-game conference stating,
"Regardless of what everyone said, the Warriors have lost it, they're not together, they can't win without Steph, they're not the same team...We know what we're capable of. There's been games we've won without Steph, series, same as Kevin, myself, we've won games without myself. We've won games without Klay. We've won games without our head coach. We're primed for this. A lot of people have (forgotten) what we're capable of. We know, and we're going to show that."
Even though the odds in favor for the Golden State to win it all once again, Draymond remains in enforcer mode, checking all of those are skeptical of their ability to take over in the postseason.
