The Golden State Warriors established their dynasty during the past ten years by playing with no restrictions. They are fiercely competitive and maintain a strong feeling of unity. However, only 15 games into the season, everything already seems to be falling apart. Stephen Curry appears to be in good shape though.
The Warriors’ most recent setback came on Wednesday when they lost to the Phoenix Suns 130-119. Also, they fell to 0-8 on the road to begin a season for the first time since 1989–90 when they started 0-9.
According to ESPN Stats & Information analysis, their skid has also become the longest overall road losing streak by a reigning champion since the 1998–1999 Chicago Bulls.
The Warriors’ previous four titles have been won by the Big Three, which consists of Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green. Thompson and Green are both 32 years old, Curry is 34, and both men. The dynasty may be about to come to an end, as their coach predicts.
Even Thompson, who recently suffered a significant injury, has not shown any indications of slowing down anytime soon. An indication of Kerr’s seasoned coaching is how well he maintains awareness of the circumstance and his future.
His basketball acumen is demonstrated by his nine championships, five of which came during his time playing in the league. Another level is knowing when to accept the reality that such a beautiful dynasty is coming to an end.
But Kerr is accustomed to witnessing events like these. He acquired experience playing for a show-stopping dynasty while playing for the Chicago Bulls from 1996 to 1998.
Steve Kerr and Stephen Curry talked openly about the situation of the Warriors
Golden State, of course, just did so last year. LeBron James, who will turn 38 in late December, has demonstrated that modern-day superstars can continue to play at any age, so there is really no way to know.
Stephen Curry recorded his 11th career 50-point game to equal Allen Iverson for ninth most all-time. He stated, “Forget the road record, we can’t find a consistent stretch of success where habits start to build. And we’re in a position where we’re going off the floor feeling good about ourselves.”
During the Warriors’ postgame news conference, the phrase “scattered” was frequently used to describe the club’s situation, implying a lack of communication and buy-in from each team member.
Warriors coach Steve Kerr claimed that the group is divided on the topic of winning anxiety.
“It’s a pickup game,” according to Kerr. “and neither team is committing to getting three straight stops in order to execute on offense.”
With all of his knowledge, Kerr should be the coach who can foresee when his dynasty will come to an end.
