    The Warriors are likely the NBA's next dynasty, but I many don't realize how this has been years in the making, and how much luck it took for them to get where they are today.

    Today I'm discussing the incredible luck it took for the Warriors to get the roster they have today, starting around 2007. Sometimes everything goes your way, and that definitely happened for Golden state.

      Dom2k u got it wrong bc the warriors didn’t rely on any luck. They planned it like how they convinced KD to move to there team in free agency and how they realised the raise in cap space and how they realised how much Green and Klay will improve and what kind of player they would become.

      Throughout there Team's History they were never really bad for real just look at it Wilt Chamberlain, Run TMC, Baron Davis & Squad, Stephen Curry & Crew etC. And they didn't even have bad CoaChes Don Nelson who Created Dirk, Mark JaCkson etC. Yeah they had a Couple of miss fortunes but what exaCtly are you all saying?

    It’s pretty ironic how luck and injuries started this warriors dynasty and looking now after the 2019 finals it’s what ended them from building up from scratch to now chasing stars to maintain their status

    I saw someone that said Curry is maybe a top 10 pg all time and that Westbrook is right behind him basically. Westbrook barely makes his team better unless he's the only star on the team. He takes dumb shots when he can't make a lot of open shots, tries to power through everyone to get his points which is the only way he consistently scores and just makes dumb decisions all together. The top 3 is Magic Curry and then probably Isiah Thomas or big O. I put Curry at number 2 since he really makes it easier for the team even when he just shoots. For example this year against the Timberwolves he made 13 shots total had 37 points with 0 FTs and 11 of those shots were 3s and he made 2 clutch 3s in the last 20 seconds of OT. All that on 52% from field and 58% from 3. He can change the game so much at anytime, usually in the 3rd, that he rarely plays much in the 4th. And there's literally no one that comes close to scoring as much as he does as efficiently as he does. Other players can score more but barely anyone was as efficient as he is.

    Well, let's be quite frank and clear. The Boston Celtics with Bill Russell had a dynasty - 8 successive NBA Championships and 11 NBA Championships in 13 years. The comparison of any NBA team's far lesser achievements (Warriors 2 in a row!?) to the Celtics accomplishments is laughable and ridiculous.

    Curry = no talent, lucky, easy path, best team of all time and an overachiever. LeBron = most talented of al time by far, hardest path on court and in life, worst teams, extreme underachiever, all because God has been against him from day one.

    The foundation was set when GSW drafted Steph, Klay, and then Draymond. There were misses too, notably Harrison Barnes, but that led to Kevin Durant so it's great luck. Still Steph's geniusness and unassuming personality allows for the team-oriented ball.

    Luck? They select players in the draft that every team with better draft position could have drafted and you call that luck? How about smart.

    I was looking for a better 3 point playing team from 2011 onward. ever since friends and me came to the conclusion that NBA will change because of the power of the 3pt.
    I started focusing more on Curry when Iguodala joined them in 2013, because my theory was that good 3 point shooters would spread the defense so much that you could run the lane as good as LeBron. My reasoning was Iguodala is the poor mans LeBron, but you need the combination and I hoped this would be it
    The splash brothers were more much more than I'd ever expected haha

      Fun thing I accidentally watched NBA for the first time in 1996 when a Dutch guy played for the pacers. But I was impressed by the 3pts of Reggie Miller.
      Later I became fan of Spurs2003-2006 no 3pt. then Miami Lebron era no 3pt. But than NY knicks had this thin white guy, Steve Novak, who only played 5 minutes but usually would make two or three 3 pointers and I was immediately grasped by the power of it because it broke the defense open, people were thrown of their guard. Well ok I think I'll have to defend this white guy at the 3 point line,sure..weirdo :-)
      But I was thinking Reggie Miller. So after watching him do his thing for half a year I cam to the conclusion that this would be more than just a gimmick. omg hahahahahahaahha
      Also I know nobody reads this. Hello mom!! happy motherdsday!! :-) (I called her today) ^__^ Greets from Utrecht Netherlands

    I've been a WSU fan my whole life, and hence a Klay fan hard core ever since he entered the draft. That's why I cheer Golden State. Can't lie though, I love Steph too. Also same reason I love Celtics is Aron Baynes WSU center.

    Great video. It's nice to see how the Warriors turned from losers into a great team.
    I'm not really into basketball but I did grow up with the Bulls, Lakers and Spurs and I really liked the Warriors unselfish style of basketball.
    Looking forward to seeing how far the Warriors can go.

  • Gengar Savage

    I mean Klay KD maybe even Curry was lucky but I feel dramon was a smart choice but the gm someone doesn’t go that late without people thinking he’s trash so the warriors just knew he had potential

  • Vincent 2099

    I agree with everything you said except them being lucky. Yes they definitely had some great luck but it was their front office that carefully picked the players and worried more about a system rather than getting the flashy players. Just look at teams like Cleveland and Orlando who chose the superstar players and just ended up trading them or them being a bust.
