Game six solidified not one, but two things for the Golden State Warriors. 1) The Warriors are 2021-22 NBA Champions. 2) Their dynasty is not over, it never was. Doubts were made back in the 2019-2020 season when the Warriors finished in dead last with only 15 wins. Now, “the energy shifted,” as Draymond Green tweeted, and now Green, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson have … Continue reading Run It Back, Warriors?
