I don't think this means the end of their dynasty. Steph, Klay, and Draymond can still hang with just about anyone. They shuffle out those weak ass role players and Demarcus, then they're right back at the top of the conference.
Another year older. Cap issues and role players no longer flocking due to no guaranteed ring.

Klay will be 30 next season with a torn ACL, and maybe MCL.

Curry's 32 year-old ankles (next season) are next on the injury wheel.

I think we won't see them in the Finals again.

The Warriors dynasty is done. They all end. Miami's had its run, then ended. They are done.

I don't like celebrating injuries. I hope Durant and Klay recover. But I can't lie, I'm enjoying not only did they lose, they are done winning championships for a very long time.

Suck it.

Role players go to middle of road playoff teams all of the time and the Warriors are still in that upper echelon.

Cap issues will limit what they do, but they still maximize the potential of every scrub that lands on their bench. Curry and Green to an extent are the engine to that offense. They just need fresh guys since Iggy, Livingston, and Bogut aren't cutting it anymore.

They probably do a mini rebuild this year since they still have a first round pick or take their chances on Klay coming back before the playoffs.

There's no guarantee Curry will injure his ankles. Like there's no guarantee these guys will just go away. They are a well put together franchise that had a bunch of luck but capitalized on it every single time.

I just want them to be irrelevant, like losing to the Blazers/Rockets in the playoffs or competing for the 8th seed against Lebron.

Went out in Toronto last night. The city was nuts. I get the celebrating but holy shit, haha. People were on inactive buses, glass shattered everywhere, ect. Good thing is I didn't see any fights. Warriors fans probably stayed at home though. The city felt like the purge. Happy for them.

If the Warriors had these sort of injuries last year, Cavs in 5... They basically had all the luck in the world and unfortunately we were off our high too early. We got our championship, and I'm content with that for a bit but I can't help to think what could have, and should have been.

On the injuries, I felt bad for Klay but the Warriors don't play KD and neither KD nor Klay would be in this position right now. They have basically fucked up their franchise for the near future.

Steph is such a bitch when it matters the most. Yeah, great game 3 but he missed a shot he would make with his eyes closed in the regular season. I was giving my buddy shit for saying Klay is better as a player than Steph. I don't want to admit it, but Klay comes up big in elimination games...

It really is. Woke up and remembered that the douchebags lost and it immediately brought a smile to my face. Their season came to an end with a level of cosmic justice that hasn't been seen in a long time. Well done Toronto, enjoy it.
LOL, I kid you not when I say this.

My wife opened our current and I looked outside to see sunshine and immediately cracked a ear to ear grin.

There's still the chance that they have only 1 down year if they retain #11 and #35.

Is Klay's cap essentially unusable, the way KD's is, if he also ends up leaving? If so, things could get really bad, and they could run out of ways to rearrange Titanic deck chairs a la the Cavs trying various trades to appease LeBron once Kyrie wanted out.

The question becomes if Steph and Draymond Webber are willing to tank this coming season; heaven help the rest of us if them getting a 2020 high lotto pick comes into play.
