Many think this is it. There’s no return for the Golden State Warriors. That’s just not true, and that shouldn’t be the narrative that fans and those that despise Golden State should have this upcoming offseason.
Yes, two of their stars are down. Klay Thompson, in Game 6, tore his ACL after going up for a dunk which was contested by Danny Green. The game before, Kevin Durant went down with a franchise-altering Achilles tear. He’s since had successful surgery.
This just wasn’t the offseason for Golden State. But, they fought. They showed their championship pedigree.
With 30 points through three quarters, Thompson was rolling in Game 6, but given how he plays, it’s unlikely that an ACL tear will impact his play if he gets a full recovery.
