Ladies and gentleman, your Golden State Warriors…are getting eclipsed by the 2010 Giants. And eight of nine ESPN experts predict as bad or worse a finish as last year. If the vast majority of NBA writers are correct, the Warriors offseason was a futile peddling of the hamster wheel.
This is a battle between what the stats claim and what feels right. Numbers love the Dubs, but defense often toils in a statistical blind spot. So, what say you, how feel you? As the Warriors gear up to face the Rockets, as Scola’s hair shapes into a smirk at the thought of David Lee, as Kevin Martin practices Monta-foiling flops, what will we see from the new-look team?
My foresight: The Warriors win, thanks to a Houston back-to-back. I guessed 43 wins at season’s start, a prediction that could easily turn whenever Curry’s ankle bends.
