How quickly it seems the Warriors went from everybody’s second favorite team, the team you wished your team played like, to “they got lucky.”
A lot of people are down on the Warriors for some reason heading into this season, and I talk about that in the return of PBT Extra for the season. This is the first of 30 “Bold Prediction” previews looking at every NBA team, but Jenna Corrado and I decided to start it all off out West with the defending champs.
Did they get lucky with health? Yes. So did every other team ever to win an NBA title. This was the best team in the NBA last season, they brought back their entire young core, and they are the bar that needs to be cleared if any other team is going to make the NBA Finals out of the West. And I’m not convinced any other team can clear that bar.
(Keep an eye out on for me on Twitter as I ask for your bold predictions on teams for future PBT Extras.)
