Yeah at the moment, 4 or 5 months later. The Warriors are still laughing. Lakers cant even smile at the moment.

Steven a is a little off with his point. It isn't so much curry himself but the Curry system. Anyone can play in it and trive. Anyone can play with curry and trive. His gravity on defenses makes it easier for you to play your game. Especially these strech bigs that are coming up now. It's the best system in basketball

Why does everyone all of a sudden think the Warriors dynasty is over if KD leaves?? KD is a great asset, but he dosnt make or break that team. They will still be top of the league if he leaves..

Kobe is wrong. I have been a Warriors fan since the 1980s. The fans have always been here. So Kobe doesn't know what he is talking about. The only thing that changed is the crowd. Before it was a blue collar crowd. Now that the team is winning. The ticket sales are super expensive. So the crowd has changed a lot. So from the outside looking in. I can understand why the world think Warriors fans are band wagon fans. Because all they see are corporate looking old folks in our arena. I am not going to get into the color or the people skin. It is what it is. But as an old Warrior fan like myself. We have been here. We have always sold out the games. Why? Probably because the tickets were cheap. There was free taco bell if our Warriors scored above 100. Those who know, free chalupa nights are awesome! Or we showed up to yell at our team or the other team. It was fun. It was awesome! We loved yelling Kobe sucks. Even though he would score 40 plus on us. The refs would only put him on the line 15 times and we would lose by 4 points. I ain't bitter. Kiss my butt Kobe. The rest of the NBA didn't know about us because you didn't watch our games. But the fans have always been here. Do you know how big the Raider nation is? Now add the 49ers, San Francisco Giants, San Jose Sharks and Oakland Athletics fan base. That is just the tip of the iceberg of how big the Golden state Warriors fan base is. Now it is global. Thanks to Steph and KD. I don't want the Warriors moving to SF. Warriors have always been Oakland. But the amount of revenue it will pull when the Warriors go to San Francisco will be insane. To those who think the Warriors fans are bandwagon fans. I will toast to that hate. We are going to enjoy this ride. We have been through a lot. It is our time now. I don't get to yell Kobe sucks anymore. I do miss that. Thank you Kobe for the memories.

If KD leaves after this year ... what if the Dubs give Boogie Cousins a fat contract? DMC is not KD, but still a nice fit as we've been seeing lately. Or is it worth going after someone like AD?

I kind of agree with both of them, I think it’s obvious that Lebron isn’t a great teammate although I don’t doubt he is a great friend. This is the difference between the warriors picking up great players and the Lakers struggling. We’ve all seen Lebron treat his teammates like his kids telling them what they did and coulda done. He is the coach, GM and player. Curry leads by example and is reported to have gone to Draymonds house after the KD spat and he wasn’t even at the game

Well first off they didn’t build around Stephen curry back then, they always had a squad!!! What happened was they lost players and then they brought new players in and made steph better...LeBron been good since day 1 in the league but nobody knew steph till a few years ago

Don't forget Cousins is not only auditioning for free agency, hes got the warriors attention especially if Kd leaves. It might make even more sense to keep Cousins and deal durant for a draft picks and young pieces for the bench. Livingston and Iggy are on there last leg. If you watched the dubs before kd youde know they been craving a good screener and low post threat on D and O after losing Bogut. People forget the edge he brought and the guy could pass. I've seen durant single handedly contradict style, defensive effort and he thrives in iso situations w more shot attempts. He wants to win on his own anyway. Which I'm cool with as a Warriors fan. We all know in 2014-2016 the dubs played so different and dominated more. They just got tired, hurt and couldnt stop kyrie, and didn't have a big inside. They got killed on the boards and at the free throw line. I lowkey hope kd moves on for his own legacy's sake and the warriors franchise and currys sake. They can get younger and fit a more cohesive team that lasts longer in the future if they trade Durant before he leaves in free agency. Tough call to explain if you don't get the yard in assets back and don't finish the three peat

If Warriors lose KD they will go away because Curry is always hurting his lower legs. Can't trust Curry to stay healthy, without Curry and KD they're not even a playoff team. Lakers will have a matured Kuzma, Ball, plus another Star and LeBron. Lonzo has really impressed me lately, when he's making his shots he's the best young PG in Basketball by far. Zo seems to get about 4 steals a game and a couple blocks, on top of 7-10 rebounds 7-10 assists and 12-20 points. Once Lonzo can average 18 points a game he'll be better than Jason Kidd could wet dream of

Whatever Kobes I haven’t been scared of a lebron team in the past few years. He makes teams worse and when you constantly lose to bad teams it means you’re no better than nobodies. At least he hid in the east for his entire career now he is in trouble and people are realizing how overrated he is.

Warriors are LIGHT YEARS ahead of the NBA. 67 wins 73 wins 67 wins 58 wins Avg 66 3 Titles .. and counting Chase Center is 85% complete. Best arena in sports.4th largest TV market.

If KD walks out the door, they have DC already warming up to replace him. He’s not as good, but DC is still an All Star talent. Steph, Klay, ?, Green, Cousins... still a championship team. Not to mention Iggy on the bench with Livingston.
