Unfortunately, the Warriors were officially knocked out of the playoff hunt with their loss to the Suns last night. This Baron Davis photo circa 2005 pretty much sums up my feelings. It really sucks that we actually are going to end with a better record than last season (when we went on a historical upset playoff run), but aren’t going to the post season because of a ridiculously competitive western conference. Not to mention that we’re probably better than almost all of the eastern conference playoff teams except maybe the Pistons and the Celtics.
Looking to the future, though, I really hope we can make some power moves in the off season. Who knows, some solid post players and we just might be able to make a run for the ship. Come on, management, at least make it look like you’re actually trying to make the team better (*cough* terrible chris webber idea *cough*). Even better would be for the city of Oakland to buy the team from whatever billionaire white guy owns it so that profits could go to education, health care, cleaning the sewage out of Lake Merritt, etc. Guess I’ll have to keep dreaming on that last one.
Still, thank you to the team for another entertaining season. Best sports team the Bay has going for it right now, hands down.
As for the playoffs…go Hawks?
