Is Golden State no Longer Golden?

Payton Beasley, Writer and Editor

The Golden State Warriors have had a very rough start to their season. The first lost to the Clippers 141-124. Then they fell to the Thunder 120-92. Their only victory, a 134-124 game against the Pelicans, was a short-lived hype moment, as they have lost three straight to the SUNS, spurs, and the HORNETS. Their superstar point guard, Stephen Curry, has suffered a broken hand. Draymond Green is hurt. Klay Thompson tore his ACL. Kevin Durant went to Brooklyn. DeAngelo Russell is unhappy. Is Golden State’s dynasty over?

Well, i’m not quite ready to rule them out. If I were to, I would be stupid. Stephen Curry will do Stephen Curry. He is out for a while, but when he returns, Golden State might still be in playoff contention. If the Warriors can only drop 87 points on the Hornets though… maybe it IS over. Draymond Green will play lights out defense when he returns I hope, and Klay Thompson hopefully will return and be better than ever. Until their big three is back, their team is put in a horrid situation. Unfortunately, they will not be as good as they once were. The team will not be able to do as they once did, and players such as Eric Paschall and Ky Bowman will have to step up. The team is going to be bad. Very, very bad. This team may very well be the next 2012 Bobcats. This team will not do much until their stars return, but I can see them getting a lottery pick at the very least.

Will this team suprise everyone and ball out without Thompson, Curry, Green, and Russell? Will they not win a game? It’s really up in the air at this point. For now, they are at the bottom of the NBA. That’s right, a team that has been dominant for the past 6 years is now at the bottom. It’s really a sad situation for Golden State, as they will now be the laughing stock of the league, but in reality, they are just plagued with various injuries.
