It's not just about beating the Miami Heat, that was good and all, but even last year we beat them. Why am I so harsh lately with my comments? Why am I being sort of an A hole when it comes to sticking up for my team this year? Because there is a lot of biases in the NBA. People talking about East Coast teams or LA just because they are big market teams. Like why do I wanna keep reading about the Lakers when they aren't a relevant team anymore? Im tired of hearing about them and I don't respect them or think they are a 500 team. Now you can laugh all you want, but look at the standings and look at the facts instead of arguing about me. It's not just the Lakers though.
The Warriors are probably gonna get snubbed in the All Star game with a winning record and I'm not going to stand seeing guys like Lin get in and inferior players in the East making it as well. I'll put the Warriors head to head with any of those players who make it. The Warriors don't get much respect and Warriors fans don't get much either, so I feel that it's my duty to stick up for them if I can. We have been ridiculed for years, laughed at, and ignored, not taken seriously. We are still one of the most passionate fans in the NBA.
So I'm just saying, wake up and stop talking only about Jeremy Lin or the less than 500 Lakers. If the Lakers can win 10 in a row or 5 in a row in the road, then give me a shout. If you don't think the Warriors deserver to be talked about as much as the other teams on here, you don't have NBA league pass and your butt is in bed when we're playing home games. Someone on here said, ''I respect the Warriors, but maybe you should talk about them on a warriors forum. They aren't interesting to talk about.'' Well you know what? They are a feel good story and people need to stop acting like Kobe did when he said he didn't know Jeremy Lin. That's all I gotta say. If there were a few more threads about the Warriors on here from time to time and they were getting respect from intelligent fans, I wouldn't have to write this stupid thread.
I tell you what. I respect Clippersfan86. Not because he's a troll like you say or anything, not because I'm an LA fan or aren't, but because the guy is passionate, honest, speaks his mind, and gives you respect. He respects the Warriors as well. I respect him and the Clippers a hick of a lot more than the Lakers. I know what he's going through.
Lastly, the Warriors are building a waterfront arena in SF, next to the bay bridge. That will be 1000 times more iconic than any basketball arena ever built. I'm not saying it's going to be more famous than Madison Square garden right away, that's not what I mean. But we're talking about a GS team moving across the bay, playing next to perhaps the most classy city in the world. So many cities in the East Coast have no hills, no Alcatraz, no Golden Gate Bridge, and I could go on and on and on. And that's not just the East Coast. I don't mean to sound condescending but when people act like SF isn't something, they are totally mistaking. When the Warriors are playing next the bay bridge and the water and within a couple blocks from ATT Park, don't be an IDIOT and start talking about San Francisco as if it's some stupid city when you're probably living in a city with nothing at all. No mountains, no hills, no views, just totally flat and out in the middle of nowhere, yet people act like the West Coast isn't all that unless it's LA. The Warriors need the respect that they deserve and I'm already going insane knowing they probably won't have an All Star this year, when it's so obvious they should.

I guess I've always wanted to discuss the Golden State Warriors before.
Probably my favourite NBA team from the California state, if I had to pick one. They just remind me of the Raptors (my favourite team) in a lot of ways. It's good to see them winning this season.
Steph Curry would be my favourite Warrior, if I had to pick one.
That said, not many people bring up the Warriors on ISH because they aren't many Warriors fans on ISH to begin with and most people from Cali are talking about the Lakers because their fanbase is huge. Even the Clippers get more talk because of their Los Angeles connections. Though, that should change because of the winning streak and possible playoff seeding if they keep this hot streak going.
They were also the 8th most valuable team to the NBA last season, going to show that their fanbase and location is going to keep them relevant for years to come.
Super exciting team to watch with one of the best backcourts in the NBA if not the best offensive one. Cant wait till I visit my parents in SF next year for 6 months then I can watch them play ... hopefully Bogut will be back and they will be fighting for a top 4 seeding
I've been watching them along on league pass. Fun team, and I also have Thompson, Lee and Jack on my fantasy team Glad to see them doing well. I expect them to finish 6-8th at seasons end.. solid considering they're a very young team and only made the playoffs once in the last 18 years..
