    Exactly. I'm glad he suffered a devastating injury. I fell ZERO sympathy for him after that crap he pulled on Harden. ZERO. The same goes for the rest of them. That dirty ass team runs illegal screens, undercuts players, trips/ holds them, kicks player's nuts, and gouges player's eyes. Yet nobody ever dishes it back at them for some unknown reason. Thankfully Karma caught up to them and the Universe took care of it. Klay tore his own ACL. He wasn't even fouled on the play. He also strained his own hamstring trying to draw a foul where nobody even touched him. KD's injury was self inflicted too. Straight up Karma.

    I hope they rot in salary capped, luxury taxed, injured player hell for decades for the way they collectively tried to permanently injure Harden.

    Look no further than this year

    Harden had his eyeballs gouged out by Green, was bleeding from both corneas, came back and scored 29 points without being able to see in 2.5 periods...and the Warriors and their friends in the take-industrial complex said he was faking.

    A week later after his eyes finally stopped looking like blood demon spawn, they all apologized .....hahaha not.

    It is going to be very tricky off season for Warriors now. If you offer max to 1 of the 2 then that will seem being partial. If they dont offer max and other teams do then that will show their "loyalty" to these players. If they offer max to both then it will be a huge leap of faith. The best case for them would be Durant opts out leaves volunterly or Durant opts in and they offer max to Klay.

    No sympathy or feelsbadman.jpgs for the Warriors.

    Half of their titles were built on the backs of avoiding injuries or causing them.

    Man dangerously goes underneath Harden during jumpshots risking Harden injury. Weeks later man leaves tournament with knee injury. Man feel karma.

    And people think Klay is a good guy? Yeah, okay.. dirty yet somehow still a good guy.. f him.

    I may be wrong but as far over the cap as they are, even if Durant decides to leave the only way they can bring in anyone making a superstar paycheck is sign and trade. Glass ankle Curry will turn 33 during the season these guys come back. They had their run.

    But you're right they will look like a-holes if they don't handle this situation delicately with 2 injured players trying to re-up.

    U sure about that?

    Do you think the Rockets had 100% turnover in season ticket holders from the Summit days to now?

    Do you do this with your family? Do you argue just to do it?

    There have been articles written on it, even players have commented on it. The cost of Warriors tickets have gotten so high that most of the long term fans cannot afford to go to the games. The corporate and casual fan interest is at an all time high because they have been dominant.

    It's a shame he didn't make All-NBA team this year so that the Warriors would have no choice but offer the SUPERMAX. It would be the first SUPERMAX for a guy who is currently healing from a torn ACL.

    Amazing how good surgeons are at repairing these injuries now -- players are coming back at 100% so often now it's surprising when they don't fully recover. Deshaun Watson coming back in 5 months in college is the fastest recovery I've heard of so far.

    "After the Warriors' loss in Game 6, Steve Kerr told reporters Klay Thompson said he would need only two minutes in the locker room. Unfortunately for Golden State, he didn't return."

    Ok... but this is different then your claim that they only have a bunch of t-shirt fans who will no longer support them once they return to being mediocre.

    Again, Oakland (or the bay area, since they're moving) have been loyal to the Warriors for decades... during years where they had no business drawing fans (including playing in a different city while they were renovating the coliseum).

    Every fan base (just look at the Astros) gets exponentially bigger (and more expensive) the better the team does.

    Dejuan Blair has had a reasonable professional career and doesn't even have ACLs. PJ Dozier played for several years on a torn one. Lots of players in sports have played without them in at least one knee (John Elway tore his in high school and it was never fixed).

    Your knee will be unstable, but it still works.
