Stephen Curry laughing at doubters saying Warriors are no longer title contenders
Two-time MVP Stephen Curry doesn’t really care about the people who are saying that the Golden State Warriors are no longer championship contenders. If anything, he finds them and their perspective of the Dubs laughable.

The Warriors lost a lot of players who played a vital role in their championship runs in 2017 and 2018. Kevin Durant decided to join the Brooklyn Nets, Andre Iguodala was traded to the Memphis Grizzlies, and Shaun Livingston was waived. Meanwhile, young and promising players like Jordan Bell and Quinn Cook opted to take their talents somewhere else.
The Warriors were able to re-sign both Klay Thompson and Draymond Green to long-term deals, and they have also acquired D’Angelo Russell from the Nets. However, one can argue that the roster they have assembled isn’t really an upgrade from what they had last season.
Several Western Conference teams have bolstered their rosters in order to take the throne away from the Warriors. The Los Angeles Lakers traded for Anthony Davis to form a superstar duo with LeBron James. The Los Angeles Clippers, on the other hand, acquired Kawhi Leonard in free agency and then traded for Paul George.
Furthermore, the Houston Rockets reunited James Harden and Russell Westbrook to create what could be the deadliest backcourt partnership in the NBA. The Denver Nuggets and Utah Jazz are already two great teams that became even better with the moves they made in the offseason.
To put it simply, this is the most challenging season that the Warriors will face over the past six years. As it appears though, Curry and the Dubs are more than ready for the challenge.
