The Warriors have spent this season racking up wins, and as they've done so others have racked up opinions about just how good Stephen Curry and his team are. Former NBA player Stephen Jackson may have offered up the oddest take on the team when he said his 2006-07 Warriors team would beat the current version.
That Golden State team was good and very fun. But, that seems like an outrageous thing to say about a team that is currently 52-5. The Warriors have had to listen to the critics all season. They are bad for basketball. They couldn't hold a candle to the 1995-96 Bulls, etc.
Instead of getting angry at the critics, Golden State is taking a different approach.
My under 14 team in Melbourne Australia would have beat these @warriors 109-99. Fat Jimmy would have locked down @StephenCurry30 !!!!— Andrew Bogut (@andrewbogut) February 26, 2016
That's very well played by Andrew Bogut. The team didn't stop there, either.
Cmon man! Call fat jimmy up & tell him im looking for him https://t.co/tKKkjP16J2— Stephen Curry (@StephenCurry30) February 26, 2016
They even worked multiple criticisms into the same joke. Some critics like to say that Curry and Klay Thompson are able to hit all those three-pointers because they get open from illegal screens.
Tell Big Jimmy you and I have illegal screens for days to allow Steph to get his shot off! https://t.co/Q9lc0IMk3a— Draymond Green (@Money23Green) February 26, 2016
A lot of people seem intent on finding reasons why the Warriors aren't as good as they appear. Golden State doesn't seem very bothered and might just laugh its way all the way to another championship.
