The Big 3 is back; Wizards get crushed
Curry, Thompson, and Green brought back championship flair in a dominating home win. This is only the beginning.
Well well well. After smacking the Washington Wizards 126-112 in San Francisco, the Golden State Warriors are undefeated when Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green are all on the floor healthy this season. Did you see anything that bodes well for the future, Dub Nation?
Curry turned 34 last night. They told me he was going through an age related decline.
Thompson had his fourth straight game scoring 18+ PPG, scoring 20 against the Wizards. His defense is looking familiarly strong, and it’s clear he believes this team has championship DNA. They told me not to expect him to be All-Star caliber after two major leg injuries.
And of course there’s Green, making his return after a two month absence to a standing ovation from Dub Nation in Chase Center.

1,004 days between games with each other. Injuries robbed these three future Hall-of-Famers from continuing their NBA Finals streak, but five in a row ain’t bad. This season they’ve reformed like Voltron, with a new All-Star Andrew Wiggins eager to join them. They also have fresh legs on the team with their youth movement of Jordan Poole, Jonathan Kuminga, Moses Moody, and James Wiseman.
This is a fantastic situation for the Big 3 to find themselves in right now. They’re tied for the second best record in the NBA, battling for the second seed in the West. The playoffs are 23 games away, giving this team sometime to figure out how to galvanize the new pieces around a proven core of stars.
So…with all that in mind, I’m interested to hear if you feel the Golden State Warriors did a good job rebuilding after Kevin Durant departed. DO TELL.
