A Rough Week for the Warriors

After winning three titles in four years, one would expect that the Golden State Warriors would be on top of the world.  However, it’s not easy being at the top, as this week has proven for Golden State.  The team’s top two stars ended up in the news for all the wrong reasons.  Warriors fans are betting that the team can shake off these distractions and continue to perform at a high level. They are using NJ Unibet to wager on their team, which remains the favorite to capture the 2019 NBA title.  That being said, the Warriors will need to make their news on the court if they want to achieve the elusive “three-peat” and add a fourth trophy to their case.

Durant Curses out a Heckling Fan

Warriors forward Kevin Durant continues to be in the news for all the wrong reasons this month, after having gotten into it with Draymond Green during last Monday’s overtime loss to the Clippers.

Durant claims that beef was squashed, but he also got into an additional verbal altercation during Saturday’s game against the Mavericks — this time with a fan. Durant blasted the fan, who was courtside, with some f-bombs, as you can see below.

KD was fined $25,000 by the league for his outburst this week, but he doesn’t appear to have any remorse. Durant defended his actions in speaking to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports about the incident on Wednesday.

“Grown men can’t come to the game and heckle grown men,” he said. “That’s corny. That’s weak. You’re coming to a game to heckle another grown man. ‘You soft! You weak! Draymond this, Draymond that, you a b—-.’ You’re going to sleep doing that as a grown man to another person?”

Sure, Durant does raise a good point, but fans have been heckling athletes on the court for years. It’s nothing new. He needs to just grow up and deal with it, just like so many others in his shoes have over the years.

It’s not like he’s the first to be heckled during games — Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant and LeBron James faced just as much as KD, if not more. Deal with it.

 

Steph Curry Gets into a Wreck

Warriors star Stephen Curry has been sidelined with a groin injury, and to make matters worse, he got into a multi-car accident on Friday.

Curry was driving on Highway 24 in Oakland when he was hit by two separate vehicles, according to ABC7. He ended up spinning out and then got rear-ended. It also appeared his front bumper was beaten up, as you can see in the photo below.

The good news is that Curry was OK, and made his way to shootaround before Friday’s game against the Trail Blazers.

Hopefully everyone involved in the accident is OK.
