Last chance to choose between past and present posters
I really wanted to go with Davis ' dunk, which was audacious and maybe be best moment for the iconic 'We Believe' Warriors, but had to go with #SEVEN. Yeah, there's some recency bias there, but that was over Dallas ' best player, who cowered in fear, in a conference finals. And it got played over and over while they reviewed it. And that was en route to a championship.
#ONE …and done.
#SEVEN - i had that wiggs dunk as my phone background till just a few days ago - removed it because it might be cursing wiggs - if we win again i will put it back!
#SEVEN . I think Baron's is more iconic currently, but I enjoyed Wiggins more when it happened. If Baron's had been against the Mavs, maybe, just maybe, it would still have the edge. At the time, and especially now, it is almost hard to re-watch too much without thinking of it as the final exhale of a wildly entertaining but ultimately hopeless squad. When I watch the Wiggins dunk I have the opposite feeling.
I assume he wouldn’t just lie about this…
Patrick Beverley said on @PatBevPod that he chose the Chicago Bulls over the Golden State Warriors.
Beverley: "I figured I can make a playoff push with the Bulls. Pump them up a little bit. I'm excited man. I get to rep my city on my chest. Sweet home Chicago."
since we don't get to edit anymore
“I visited your home court in Game 3. I tried to play second fiddle. I tried to taste the life of a simple man. It didn't work out, so I took a souvenir... Luka's pretty head.” - Andrew 'John Doe' Wiggins
This one was hard. I really want to give this to Wiggs.
For "iconic" I feel the test of time is really important. Wiggs over Luka may very well stand that test of time, but it's hard to ignore the fact that BD-over-AK has 2 million views when the actual play happened before modern social media was a thing (YouTube had just been bought by Google 6 months earlier).
I vote for #ONE. (I gave Wiggs the poll vote though!)
Is this an open thread?
This video is about last year's defense but I think it does a really good job of explaining why our defense has sucked so far this year.
Woj says Pat Beverley to Chicago Bulls. CHI will need to waive someone.
#ONE because the Warriors had no business winning like they were, and Baron's slam was just proof that the Warriors had earned some respect.
Man, tough choice between BD and Wiggs for me. I think the fact that AW destroyed Luka so much that he had to fake hold his face and then roll on the ground tips the balance for me, at least AK had some dignity left. So, #SEVEN it is.
So iconic i put it on some lesson slides in my middle school classroom.
For Warriors fans born after 1975, this was a top-5 pre-Curry moment (maybe a top-5 moment in any non-title-winning season in Warriors history). It also was probably peak Roaracle, too - including the decibel meter.
Number 7 was definitely a great moment of the title run last year so it'll be always be special. But number one is pure nostaligia, and the recent titles have mostly erased the bittersweet aspect of what happened after the Utah series.
#SEVEN, and Doncic hitting the floor was the icing. But man, Baron's and HB's dunks were right there with it. All were vicious dunks and great Warrior moments.
