Post Game party: Ring Night not ruined!
One game = One win
It was during halftime of the Golden State Warriors eventual victory over LeBron James’s Los Angeles Lakers. As the breakdown plays start up, Charles Barkley quips, “The Lakers suck. Let’s just get that out the way.” As a starting point, it’s accurate, and also, a pretty major indication of just how far these two franchises fortunes have flipped. It’s a long road back to the top, and no one knows what will happen this season, but this sure felt like an auspicious start to the new season.
It was ring night, the champs got their due.
There was a lot to like in tonight’s game.
The core looks as good as ever.
Wiggins and Poole both played great.
Wiseman looked fantastic.
Kuminga is a super disruptive athlete that seems to find his way into plays.
The second unit is going to be really, really fun.
As always, this is just a short thread so our community can gather and discuss the game. Come back tomorrow for full coverage (and possibly a bit of gloating).
