The Warriors, looking beyond the moment to the greatness that awaits
This opinion from Scott Ostler, a sports columnist with the San Francisco Chronicle, uses these types of arguments to explain how the Golden State Warriors could become a legendary team:
- The Golden State Warriors need to stay focused on their current matchup against the Houston Rockets, but sportswriters and fans have the luxury of being able to step back and look at the big picture: "The Warriors are on the brink of history."
- Right now, the Warriors have two titles in three years and three trips to the finals. While exciting, they need at least one more title if they want to be considered among the all-time greats, like the "early-NBA Minneapolis Lakers, the Bill Russell Celtics, the Showtime Lakers, the Steve Kerr and Michael Jordan Bulls and the Gregg Popovich and Tim Duncan Spurs."
- Four years ago, Kevin Durant was already a star, but Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Andre Iguodola and Draymond Green were not established legends. With another title, all five should be favorites for the Hall-of-Fame.
