Both of the teams have a serious chance of winning the next championship. It all comes down to the team that wants it the most and who is ready to fight for each possession. I feel like talent wise it can go either , because they are both super talented teams. Its really hard to tell who will win because there literally taking over the NBA.
The 2015-16 Golden State Warriors — last year’s record-breaking, 3-1-Finals-lead-blowing squad — were among the very best teams in NBA history, as evidenced by their 73-9 record.
All that talent wasn’t enough, though, as a Draymond Green suspension and a Stephen Curry injury joined forces with the greatest performance in Finals history from LeBron James to cost the Warriors a championship to cap their record-setting season.
When those Warriors watched that lead over LeBron’s Cleveland Cavaliers evaporate last year, they did what any reasonable team would do — went out and signed the second-best player in the NBA to add to an already stacked squad.
Now, with Kevin Durant, two-time MVP Curry, Green and Klay Thompson leading the way and Andre Iguodala, Zaza Pachulia, JaVale McGee, David West and Shaun Livingston filling in the cracks, the 2016-17 Warriors are even better than last year’s team.
They’re already an all-time great squad heading into the Finals once again, right up there with the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls and the best Lakers and Celtics teams of the ’80s.
Those teams boasted some of the most legendary players in NBA history — names such as Jordan, Magic, Bird, Kareem, Worthy and McHale, but none had four bonafide stars in their prime like these Warriors. None embraced the power of the 3-point shot the way Golden State has. And none had quite this much firepower on both ends of the court, fantastic as those historic teams were.
