The Golden State Warriors haven’t dominated this season the way in which they’ve dominated in seasons previous. There have been public interpersonal rifts. The sky, if not falling, is taking over weight. But solely Mike Francesa has the braveness to go right here, to the place the place the Warriors’ dynasty dies in a blaze of unrealized potential.
On this crowded world of punditry, it is extremely vital to get out in entrance of a take and personal that actual property. Francesa is making a daring declare on this nook in a high-risk, high-reward calculation.
If he’s proper, then he’ll be capable of puff out his chest for seeing the handwriting on the wall. If the Warriors rip by means of the second half of the 12 months and breeze to a 3rd consecutive title, this tweet would be the lowest of low-hanging fruit.
Golden State is at present 23-13, and zero.5 video games behind Denver for the No. 1 seed within the West. They nonetheless have Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Draymond Inexperienced, and Klay Thompson. DeMarcus Cousins will ultimately be wholesome.
It’s robust to imagine the period is doomed, however hey, crazier issues have occurred. Might be enjoyable to revisit come spring.
