As we all know, Golden State came into the Garden a couple nights ago and got pummeled into a 92-88 loss against the Celtics. The key in that game was a 19-0 run from the Celtics that resulted in the Warriors blowing a 17 point lead – which they are all too familiar with. Golden State didn’t just get beat by missing shots, they were physically beaten up on both sides of the floor. Jaylen Brown got into KD and dropped a 20 piece McNugget on his headtop and Steph Curry was thoroughly embarrassed on both ends.
But, the only reaction that game got was more “analysts” still questioning the Celtics ability to contend and no flack towards Golden State. Oh no, instead we get the “Steph Curry Challenge” trending on Twitter the next day, and it’s basically been a media circle jerk since.
Oh, and of course a couple nights later the NBA account is posting Curry hitting wide open 3’s in practice and 1000s of egghead middle school kids from Cali were all over that tweet. Nevermind the fact he single handedly blew that game for GSW during that 19-0 runs where he had a flurry of stupid TO’s. I swear the only media personality that ever questions him is Cowherd and the rest of them are crickets.
I really don’t understand how so many people can like a team that is constructed with insufferable ego’s, and supported by fans who don’t know what a pick and roll is. On top of that, they needed to go poach Kevin Durant after blowing a 3-1 lead to LeBron just to beat him, and that choke is suddenly stricken from the record.
I don’t understand it, it wouldn’t surprise me if reporters are more focused on covering Curry’s dribbling routine, or his tunnel shots than the actual game because a bunch of simpletons are entertained on twitter. I didn’t even mention the hissy fits he threw by whipping his mouth piece not once, but twice. If anybody else in the league blows big leads and comes up short it’s a story for a week. Harden, Kyrie, Westbrook, or any other star it’s a story for a week. With LeBron, it’s a story for a month and in the 2011 Finals, it’s a story for 7 years. Not saying they don’t deserve to be crucified if they choke, but it’s an annoying double standard with Golden State.
