- Surprise, surprise. This year’s road warriors were the Raptors, not the Warriors.
It’s a welcome sight, seeing some fresh blood at the top of the NBA. These guys withstood everything GSW had to offer, including a hostile crowd, a very dramatic, motivational twist and turn in the game involving Klay’s wounded knee, a slew of big shots from wiggly Iggy, and all the usual hysterics and antics from Draymond Green.
And Kawhi makes a strong statement that he, not LeBron, is now the most impactful and valuable player in the NBA. He ignored public opinion and peer pressure and wisely took the time he needed to heal up, and now all that hard work and dedication is reaping monster dividends. Congratulations to the Raptors … and quite possibly, goodbye to the Warriors’ dynasty. Despite the Splash Brothers’ best, most valiant efforts, the mystique has at least been tarnished. #Raptors #Warriors
