Stephen Curry reveals best-case scenario for Warriors
After Kevin Durant’s departure to the Brooklyn Nets and Klay Thompson’s torn ACL, many NBA pundits have already counted the Golden State Warriors out of contention for the 2019-20 season. While it’s true the team is not the same powerhouse it was a year ago, Stephen Curry is not ready to let the season go to waste.
Curry laid out the team’s best-case scenario plans to Athletic writer Sam Amick, insisting the team still has a shot to cause some noise in the playoffs:
“We get to the playoffs…full strength with who we have on this team, Klay is back, & we have the championship pedigree that will follow us & we’ll be the team that…you don’t want to see across the bracket.”
If the Warriors can secure even a lower-seeded playoff spot, no favorite is going to look forward to a match up with the former dynasty.
The team still has a two-time MVP in Curry, a defensive master in Draymond Green, and a growing star in D’Angelo Russell.
Even without Klay Thompson, this team is likely to give a higher seed a run for their money. With Klay, there is potential for a possible upset.
Realistically, the Warriors will not hoist another the Larry O’Brien trophy for the fourth time this year. However, you can’t count this team out from causing some disruption when the playoffs come around, especially with their history.
