    I hate they won today.
    I hate they look like a contender.
    I hate they got an awesome young prospect in Kuminga.
    I hate that's all true & Klay is expected to return soon.

    If you'd told 14 year old me(or 32 year old me), you'd hate a team more than the Jazz I would think you were crazy.

    I'm 37 this is so irrational.

    It's never irrational to hate the warriors.

    Second on the list behind the Lakers. Especially Curry.

    Maybe you need to reevaluate the amount of emotional investment you have towards a sports organization that doesn't even recognize your existence.

    I actually respect the loyalty and organisation at this point because of what they are able to sustain.
    If anything, i would definitely hate Scott Foster above all LOL

    As a Rockets fan my attitude towards the Warriors is now, and forever will be, this:

    He's not real life stalking anyone. Fandom hate is normal in sports.

    I used to hate the warriors when we were competing with them.

    It’s funny we watched the game and had two different views.

    While you were mad that they look good, I was thinking to myself how nice it is to actually appreciate them and mainly Steph for once. I never really got to enjoy watching them play and it’s nice to be able to appreciate how great Steph is finally.

    I actually dislike Harden and the Nets more than the Warriors. In fact, them and the lakers are the two teams I dislike the most.

    They have far and away the most assets of any team in the league, they will be good for another decade at least

    A good organization and sustained success will do that. See the hate the Astros get in baseball.

    It’s cause they’re better than us. They have been for the last decade and they’ll continue to be so for the foreseeable future.

    Also, Steph Curry >>>>>>>>>> James Harden. Always has been and always will be. Once you get to admitting it…. It ain’t that bad.

    Really hated them during the rivalry, I'd be pretty happy if they beat the Nets in the finals right now if I'm honest. Frankly, I'll root for every team that could beat the Nets so they don't get a title. The more they fail and the quicker they're not a super team the better our Harden haul is.

    Hated them during the rivalry, hate them even more now because I'm jealous that they're likely still playoff-bound.

    And if there's one thing I hate more than the Warriors, it's Warriors fans. The whole "Harden practically cheats but Steph is a God" thing still grates on me.

    When we were David standing in the way of Goliath I really never knew how badly I could genuinely hate anything and everything about a team like I did the Warriors.

    Don’t get me wrong, I hate the Jazz and Lakers, but **** me. Bogut setting an illegal screen, Steph hitting a 3 and Draymond flexing even though he had nothing to do with the play would skyrocket my blood pressure into oblivion.

    However, now that we are no longer competing with them, coupled with the fact they haven’t been competitive with all of their injuries. I have been able to enjoy them a little bit.

    In fact, if they all hit their stride as a unit and end up beating the Lakers, that would genuinely make me happy.

    Interesting how time changes perspectives as if you said this to me a few years ago, I’d punch you in the face.

    Naw not really, for me


    Steve KerrI I still see as a prick, GM may have said some bullshit too. Never mad about any of the players, they’re just doing their job and being ballers.

    I’d have a lot less hate and more respect had the Durant super team up not happened.

    There will always be hate for this team because if not for them, the Rockets would have at least 2 or more Finals appearances. Yes we are in rebuilding mode but that doesn’t change the fact that as a long-time Rocket fan that I hate them, the Jazz, the Lakers, the Spurs, the Mavericks and the Celtics.

    I don't hate them anymore, I realized the only reason we were losing was cause our owner did not believe in the team, did not believe spending $20-30m on your bench or upgrading a starter would help us get over the top. We lost in 7 and 6 games, a massive blunder by the owner who spent two consecutive summers telling us he couldn't even find a minor upgrade all the while downgrading role players for slightly lesser but way cheaper players.
    Fertitta cost us a title. To me, him selling the franchise would be the equivalent of winning a championship. Thank God Stone has great imagination, Morey always hired well. Doesn’t think like a fast food chain owner.

    I’ve been saying since before the draft, people are so dumb for counting these guys out. They will be a top 2 team in the west in the second half of the season, they can beat the lakers in 6. As much as we hate it, curry green and Klay won 73 games with great role players and little to no athleticism. Not an exaggeration to say they have historically powerful chemistry on the court, they were never brimming with athleticism or flooded with talent before KD. That core plus old Iggy, Wiseman, Poole, Kuminga, Moody, Wiggins, Looney is a less experienced but far more talented core than they had in their first championship season. Their core is all under 35 and well rested the past few seasons.
