Warriors Fans Continue To Live In a Fantasy Land Where Giannis Goes to Golden State
The top group of people enjoying the Bucks’ demise are Warriors fans. After a few beverages last night, I passed out on my couch rather quickly. When I woke up at 5 AM this morning, my mentions were full of Warriors fans. They’re getting all excited that Bucks going down 3-0 could equate in them getting Giannis Antetokounmpo. This fantasy dream will never die for Warriors fans who think because they got one fucking free agent, that every other free agent will want to sign there. Golden State’s fans truly need a reality check.

I’m happy for them that they have something to do since they haven’t watch basketball since March, and their team was godawful this season. I started to call them the West Coast Knicks earlier in the year. The reason being was like Knicks fans, they’re convinced that everyone is coming to play for them. When not realizing a couple of things, one, there isn’t much of an allure to San Francisco and Oakland, and the culture of the Warriors is not exactly stable after last season. Who knows what Golden State could look like in 2021?
The funniest part of this whole thing is there are zero fucking signs of Giannis going to Golden State. He and Steph Curry like each other is the only tangible thing. But guess what, Giannis doesn’t work out with him, have the same agent as him, and frankly doesn’t spend time with players that are not his teammates or his family. Giannis is the most like an 80’s or 90’s star where the relationship with others isn’t there. Somehow that hasn’t got through the thick skulls of Warriors’ fans.
Could Giannis leave? Yeah, it’s possible just like everybody else. Will people freak out when he doesn’t sign the SuperMax this fall? Yeah, that will be a topic. But if you remember that we have a pandemic and the cap is going to be significantly lower next year, Giannis would be dumb to sign this year. Warriors fans will probably go crazy when that happens though and will let them play this fantasy out like they do with things on PornHub.
