The Golden State Warriors were the biggest force in the NBA for the past five years, reaching the Finals in each season, winning three titles. However, all things come to an end and their dynasty is pretty much over at this point. The Dubs went through a lot of changes during the summer and now are one, if not the worst team in the league.

Their level has drastically changed and now the end of their dynasty doesn’t sound as crazy as some thought before the beginning of the season. As a matter of fact, the Warriors are on pace for the worst drop in winning percentage in NBA history after a 2-11 start to the 2019-20 campaign (via Bryan Kalbrosky of HoopsHype):

Overall, their winning percentage (.167) is a far cry from their mark in 2018-19 (.695).

According to our research, that would be the largest year-over-year negative difference in NBA history. This pace would be worse than the Cleveland Cavaliers after they first lost LeBron James in 2010-11 and the Chicago Bulls after Michael Jordan retired for the second time.

It hasn’t been the easiest couple of months for the Warriors. Even though they started this season without Klay Thompson (ACL injury) and Kevin Durant (signed with the Brooklyn Nets), they were still widely regarded as a playoff team, even in a new-look Western Conference.

Nevertheless, Stephen Curry broke his left hand in the fourth game of the year. D’Angelo Russell suffered a sprained ankle, and Draymond Green missed time with ligament damage in his index finger. Kevon Looney remains on the shelf due to nerve damage.

This was supposed to be a season in which they showed they were still candidates to win it all in the league, but things haven’t worked like that for the Warriors.
