I’ll say it again – you know things got weird this weekend when Conor McGregor & Holly Holm both lose in the span of a half hour, and neither one was the most shocking finish of the weekend. That finish… Was the one where the L.A. Lakers were dribbling the clock out up by 17 on Golden State.
If that’s happening between those two teams… Kobe’s the guy dribbling it out, he’s wearing #8, and he and the Diesel just rolled over on Earl Boykins and J-Rich. Instead it was J-Randle, D’Angelo Russell and KB24 chipping in with 8 pounds give the Warriors their 6th loss.
Everybody loses in MMA. Nobody’s EVER lost like this in the NBA. That’s a fact. Biggest regular season upset ever. And it begs a couple questions. Namely- how bumping were those tunes, and how cold was that booze the Warriors were partying with in L.A. the night before? Just asking.
I mean, it was Draymond’s birthday weekend. They did have an open Saturday night in L.A.. I guess my Evite got sent to Spam, fellas? And I guess it’s just a coincidence that Steph shot 1-10 from three. And that Klay was 0-8. And they were 4-30 as a team.
The only crew that looked more off than the Warriors yesterday were those yappers screaming about moving the 3-point line back. Check that, the worst looking group are folks piling on and wondering if the Warriors are vulnerable. Just one game.
Sure, it was a horrible game. The Warriors might have the greatest single season ever. And the Lakers are having their worst season ever. You could see where Golden State may have overlooked them. It’s not like it hasn’t already happened to them this season. Sure, they’ve only lost 6 games, but 4 of them were to teams with losing records. It’s not the Spurs, OKC and Cleveland the Warriors are worried about: it’s the Lakers, Bucks, and Nuggets.
Don’t get me wrong- getting run off the court by the Lakers on national television is crazy. But not as crazy as all these HOT TAKES about how vulnerable Golden State is. They’re not.
