I can't speak for anyone else but I don't find them hateable. A little annoying (like you said about Draymond) but I think they are harmless in that respect. So many people just coming out of the woodwork riding their jock like whoa, take it easy there. They haven't even reached the conference finals with this group yet. idk
Re: Harden. He gets my MVP vote. "The Starters" podcast this morning kind of compared what Harden is doing to the 2001 Sixers which I never really put together considering I'm a huge AI fan. But again, they haven't even won a playoff series so let's just see how things fall into place.
i think part of the reason i feel some slight antipathy towards the warriors and their fanbase is because of sf itself...it aint like theyre some underdogs who have a tiny window or anything, but they tend to act that way. it's tough cuz the warriors have been flat-out terrible for decades but their baseball team is great, their football team was really good for a bit, and obv their actual city is phenomenal so how downtrodden can they really be
I don't care what the perception about warriors or SF is or whether or not it's ok to hop on a bandwagon. I love watching the way they play basketball. I love that whole team. I like watching good basketball. This usually results in no team loyalty
nah i dont care about bandwagoners or anything like that. it just irks me when warrior fans are aggressive about putting down other teams and/or players. that's not the team's fault, and it doesn't affect how fun they are to watch. it just makes it a little hard to directly root for them.
Basketball fan for life. Bay area sports have been doing quite well this decade, but the Warriors just haven't been good in my entire life time! So many bad contracts I've just simply forgotten them, but once in a while I read that Bill Simmons piece for a humorous reminder of just how bad it's been.
I personally have been the lone Dubs fan anytime I watch games with friends, having been in SoCal for so long. Can't say one way or another what the general fan-base is like, except that games at Oracle are freakin rocking.
