The Golden State Warriors lost the 2019 NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors in six games after suffering the injuries of Kevin Durant in the last three series of the postseason as well as Klay Thompson’s in the last minutes of the last game of the season, where the Warriors were unresponsive at times without Thompson.
With all these factors, considering the way they played in the last seconds of the game, many people have started to believe that this series meant the end of an era for the Warriors, who played five consecutive Finals, winning three of them.
Still, there are people who don’t think Golden State is done, and they look ready to go back to the top of the league next season even though that is a very difficult job to carry out.
One of the biggest figures of the team, Draymond Green stated in Game 6 postgame interview that the Warriors’ dynasty was anything but over ahead of next season, but those statements might be a big mistake for Green.
Draymond: “Everybody thinks it’s kind of the end of us. That’s just not smart. We’re not done yet.”

Just in case you’re wondering who dared to make such a bold statement on the Warriors’ future, it was none other than Drake, who ended this series even making postgame interviews just like another NBA player.

Steph Curry backed Green’s words, stating is easy to say any type of comments right now after the competition has ended.
“I wouldn’t bet against us, being back on this stage next year.”
With the injuries of Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant, who is not sure to be playing ball in the Bay next season, things look very complicated to the Warriors. Moreover, seeing that Andre Iguodala is 36 and Shaun Livingston 34 and will probably not be part of the team next season, the franchise’s front office needs to make some quality moves to maintain this squad as a competitive one.
