The Last Hope: 5 Moves That Could Stop The Golden State's Dominance

Golden State Warriors are probably the best NBA team in the past 10 years and they are a clear favorite against the Cleveland Cavaliers and LeBron James.

Steve Kerr has built arguably one of the strongest dynasties in the history of basketball and the Warriors look virtually unstoppable with all of their 4 All-Stars healthy, featuring 3 of the best scorers in the league and 2 MVPs.

The Warriors dominance has made the league kind of boring and everybody knows this needs to stop as soon as possible, with every single team building to try and stop the Golden State, as the Rockets even blatantly admitted.

But, how on earth could you stop Curry, Thompson, Green and Durant? Is not an easy task to achieve, but today, we’re going to let you know about 4 things that might as well be enough to finally stop the Warriors next season.

4. Lakers Will Rise Again: Paul George And DeMarcus Cousins

The Los Angeles Lakers took major strides this season and improved a lot upon Lonzo Ball, Josh Hart and Kyle Kuzma’s arrival to the team, so landing a couple top-tier free agents such as Paul George and DeMarcus Cousins would definitely take them back in the playoff picture after some rebuilding years.

While George has been linked with the Lakers for a couple of seasons now, Boogie has recently unfollowed the Pelicans and started following several Lakers players, so rumors start to grow regarding him being dressed in purple and gold for the next year.

3. Celtics Nation: Kyrie Irving And Gordan Hayward

The Boston Celtics have already exceeded all expectations after making it all the way to the Eastern Conference Finals despite losing Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving, and have proven that they can become a major force even without 1 or 2 of their All-Stars.

Brad Stevens is one of the best coaches in the league and his top-tier defensive system could slow the Warriors’ pace down. Kyrie already knows how to torch Curry and Thompson on offense, while having Jaylen Brown or Jayson Tatum backing up Gordon Hayward would give them the depth they need to match up with the Dubs’ long rotation.

2. Sixers' Trade Package For The Kawhi Leonard

There has been a lot of speculation regarding Kawhi Leonard’s future and even though the Spurs are expected to offer him a mega max extension during the summer, all signs point towards Gregg Popovich granting his way to play elsewhere via trade.

The Sixers have the assets to pull this deal off, being entitled of the 10th overall pick as well as Dario Saric and Robert Covington, and landing Leonard would give them the kind of veteran leadership they lacked during this year’s run against the Celtics, not to mention the Klaw has always been the Warriors’ kryptonite.

LeBron James is unlikely to extend his stay at the Q beyond this season, especially if the Cavs are unable to win the Championship again, and with him set to become an unrestricted free agent and already being tied with the Houston Rockets, this could be the biggest game changer of the upcoming campaign.

James is one of Chris Paul’s closest friends and the missing piece the Rockets have needed to finally put an end to the Warriors dominance this year, and with Houston building with the lone goal of dethroning the Dubs and James thirsty for revenge, this may be the King’s landing spot.

THE LAST HOPE

Jordan And Kobe Find The Fountain Of Youth

Following a 1 on 1 game on Kobe Bryant’s backyard, Jordan blocks Kobe’s fadeaway all the way to a creek. Being as competitive as there are, they both sprints to try and see who’s the fastest, with MJ trying to convince Kobe to bet some money on this.

As they approach the creek and take a zip out of crystal clear water, both start to feel kind of funny. Their knees don’t hurt, their bellies go away, and even Kobe’s afro starts growing back: they’ve found the fountain of youth.

So, both decide to share their little secret with Shaq, Malone, Stockton, Pippen, Rodman, Ewing and Duncan, so they come out of retirement to finally put an end to the freaking Warriors following a perfect season.

The Monstars Take Their Talents Away

Picture this: the Dubs are back-to-back Champions and decide to party big time at Klay Thompson’s crib following a major parade across the Bay Area, celebrating the fact that they’re the greatest team ever.

Meanwhile, a giant telescope is watching them from a galaxy far, far away, as Mr. Swackhammer, the Moron Mountain CEO has finally developed a new way to enslave all mankind and take the Dubs to outer space where they’ll be doomed to play and lose for all the eternity.

The sky turns purple, a huge spaceship lands, and the Monstars are back in town, taking away all of the “Hamptons 5” talents, this time for good. Sadly, this would also mean the ending of life as we all know it, but hey, at least the Dubs won’t win again.
