The Golden State Warriors have done it! They have proved why everyone terms their last 8 years or so as the Warriors dynasty. Just in 2020, the Warriors hit rock bottom. And 2 years later in 2022, they are back on the top of the hill. Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green have won their 4th title in 8 years and 6 NBA finals appearances and their surge back to the top has been immensely inspirational.

Thompson said, “Well, I had to have my big bro talk me up legit a few times. I couldn’t drive, I couldn’t do nothing. I was immobilized. I’m such an athletic person.

In 2019, the Warriors played their 5th NBA finals in a row. Unfortunately, they saw two of their star men fall to injuries during the last phase of the NBA playoffs. After Kevin Durant sustained an injury and was then traded out of the Warriors, they had to wait for Klay’s return as well.

His knee injury in 2019 was followed by an Achilles injury which kept him out for two whole seasons. Those two seasons really showed his importance to the team. They finished 2020 at 15th seed and failed to qualify for the playoffs in 2021. So to be back on top really meant a lot for the whole roster as it did for Klay himself.
