We are three games into the season and the Warriors are 2-1. On the surface, everything should be fine, the Warriors had a hiccup game 1 and came back with 2 wins. Now, to reality, these Warriors are not the Warriors of last year. This is gonna take awhile to figure out. Kerr's rotations are off, and the team looks disgruntled. Klay is upset, and the team is not blowing teams out like the sun's the way that they should. They let AD go for like 5 billion points and 1 billion rebounds on them and clarified that Rim protection is actually an issue for this team. It is fair to also argue that AD is starting out at an insane rate and that game was more about him then the Dubs, but this teams is supposed to be that much better than everyone else. The two saving graces the Warriors have had have been the 2 top 5 players they have, Steph and more so KD, who, especially KD, have looked somewhat unstoppable.
Now they travel to Portland where they face off with Dame and the trailblazers, the famous site of the I'm here, I'm back moment. Dame has been on a tear, going at a clip of 35 PPG, 8 RB, 5.3 APG which is historically good. CJ is no joke either, with 21, 5, and 3. I have a feeling tonight will be a Klay game, who has been off the first 3 games. He has a huge height advantage on CJ or Dame, who no longer have a HB to put one of them on, so will have to have one of them Guard him. Bring on the 3-1 Jokes, I think tonight is the first of many great steps for this 2016-17 Team.
