Before I start, let me give you all a quick run down of what is going on from the beginning. Kevin Durant left in the first quarter of the Washington Wizards game. Home return for him, uh. He has a Grade 2 Medial Collateral Ligament (MCL) Sprain and Tibial Bone Bruise. Kevin Durant and teammate, Zaza Pachulia, collided, which caused the injuries Kevin sustained. It is not sure when Durant will be back, but the question is, even if he did come back by the end of the season, will he be healthy enough to be an All Star contributor to the Golden State Warriors winning a ring? Will the original team with the main ingredient being Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala be enough to win it all? Well, it doesn’t look like that, since they lost to the Washington Wizards and the Chicago Bulls. Making them losing their 1st back to back game in years. Keep in mind that, out of the last 9 games, Warriors lost 5 out of those 9. Losing another back to back to back. 3 games losing streak: one to the Boston Celtics, Minessota Timberwolves and the San Antonio Spurs as of now. If the warriors have to get their chemistry back with the original ingredient team, well, it doesn’t look like they might have enough time. Playoff is about chemistry and with limited games left to develop some on court chemistry their chances of wining a ring is up in the air. With what Coach Steve Kerr is doing with benching starters and not playing them will see if it works. They need to relax and withstand the pressure. They need to recollect themselves and get back to their winning ways.
It is simply that the Warriors need Kevin Durant to win a ring. They need some star power to put them over the top. Critics are saying that the Warriors wouldn’t even get out the 1st round without being Durant healthy. The Warriors will not beat the Cavaliers in the Championship round if Kevin Durant isn’t there, says Charles Barkley. I think he might be right. I mean, look, the Cavaliers has heart after wining the championship game after being down 3-1. I mean, the Cavs owned the Warriors original team, so unless Durant comes back and gives them that big boost over the championship top, I don’t think Warriors has it in them. I like the Matt Barnes pick up. He is a baller and he has heart, so that is good they have him and Draymond Green. He might give them that heart that they need. Kevin Durant being out indefinitely is a big deal in the Warriors world. Lets hope the Warriors has the best of the best doctors, doctor of physical therapists included to help Durant dominate this injury. No one knew how big Durant was to the team winning a championship but now they know.
With Kevin Durant being healthy, well, the Warriors are going to the NBA Finals. Durant gives the Warriors a chance to dominate but that doesn’t mean they will win the ring. But all you need is a chance and Kevin Durant is THAT chance that needs to get physically healthy for the Warriors to get back on top. This is grinding month in the NBA season, so the Warriors has to be focus and do some work. They need to stop tripping and buckle down. Ignore all the distractions and let the doctors work on Durant to get him back in time and fully healthy for the playoffs or maybe the second round of the playoffs. The question is, can the Golden State Warriors actually win it all in the NBA Playoffs? That answer is everyone’s opinion right now, but the real answers will come in June when we see who are in the finals, so lets see what happens. Most people think they will not win the championship without Durant because they have no faith in the Warriors without Durant. I think Durant will be okay and he will come back to the All Star player he is. But will the Warriors win the Championship without Durant? Well, hmmmmm, it doesn’t look like it right now, but we will see. Keep hope alive and stay focusing. Deal with the task in hand and all will be good. If the Warriors get their mind right and get Durant back, I think they might have a good chance to win it all thinking about it. Watch out for the Spurs though. People always sleeping on the Spurs, but the Warriors needs to tighten up to win this ring. I think they have it in them. They just need to re-focus.
