[2017-18 NBA Preview] Golden State Warriors

The NBA season is almost here. While the majority of people think the NBA season is already over before it even begins (let’s just go ahead and crown the Golden State Warriors right now, right?). we still have to let the season play out because YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT CAN HAPPPEN, RIGHT?

What if the Warriors are involved in some kind of freak accident and everyone gets hurt?

Well, the league just opened up for all 29 other teams to win the whole thing.

Even though I personally believe it would take a plane wreck to take the Warriors down, there are some NBA teams out there that think they have the tools and weapons to do exactly that.

But look. We all know that’s not going to happen. The question with this team is pretty simple…..can they break their own record of winning 72 games in a season and win yet ANOTHER NBA title?
