    damn that is absolutely brutal. both KD and klay are going to miss a good amount of next season. still think a team will give him the max though because he deserves it 100% he was by far the warriors best player this series

    crazy that he was jogging and trying to stay in the game on a torn ACL. hope he can recover quickly and remain the player he is

    Why? It's not unusual that you are almost pain free after tearing your ACL. It's the lateral movement that is an issue.

    Hope he has a speedy recovery. However, could this be a blessing in disguise for the Warriors? KD almost assuredly opts into his contract with the Warriors to take one last shot at a title before leaving next summer, and the Warriors are going to pay Klay regardless. Rehab is not easy, but it's definitely easier than the grind of an 82-game season + Finals run for the last five seasons.

    The Warriors will have to hope that Curry + Draymond can keep them afloat until Klay/KD are ready to return (assuming KD opts in), and then they can make another push for the Finals.

    I'm assuming both KD and Klay will be out until February at the earliest, though.

    Nope, just seemingly through attrition. Which is only going to amp up the regular season rest days for star players.

    Why would he opt in when supposedly a handful of teams are still willing to max him out?

    Ya it takes awhile for the swelling to really take hold...plus the guy was full of adrenaline.

    Warriors are aging fast...I guess when you play to June every year, it’s probably like they’ve played 2 extra seasons in the last 5 with the intensity of playoffs.

    It’s about 1 season of games (5 years, ~20-22 games per on average), but those are all much higher intensity than visiting the Pelicans in January so I gotta figure they take a lot more outa you.

    That just sucks he got hurt like that. Especially because he was basically NBA Jam level on fire when it happened. Just crazy to see GS get decimated like this.

    I admit, I thought when he came back out he was "embellishing" his injury

    how wrong I was...brutal injury

    Brutal.

    Scenario: They could opt to be cold blooded and not re-sign him. Durant goes elsewhere. They renounce every other FA. How close are they to having the cap room for a max free agent? Looking at it, it's not that big of a $ figure from what I can see.

    Exactly,... it's painful and super weird/uncomfortable in the moment it happens, afterwards it's torn and the only thing that hurts is when your knee moves in a way it shouldn't (and nerves relating to the meniscus, remaining ligaments and other stuff send the "don't hurt me too" pain signals). When you have super strong legs (as he would) it's not surprising the rest of that structure can keep the knee in place for a quick jog out and back... it was (from the announcer I heard) when he started hopping (and a trainer would have suggested start-stopping) in the room... that's when he would have realized the lack of stability and that the ACL was gone.

    He'll be back ready in 6 months, that's fairly standard even without the excellent care these guys get.

    You must not have seen the super slow mo replay of him landing awkwardly... yuck. As a guy who blew his ACL, it made me queasy. It was either shredded or he's super gumby.

    They are the best team in the west right now after Klay and KD went down.

    I think they’re 11 mil over if Klay leaves and Durant picks up his option.

    So they’d have like 20 mil space if both left and a max deal is 33 or something.

    I don't know how you can see someone's knee/leg bend like that and think he's milking it. :laugh:

    End of the Warriors? I'm sure they'll still be a top team in the West but their automatic bid to the Finals at the very least appears to be dead.

    Wow, for the first time in a long-ass time, we have no idea who is going to be in the Finals next June. Could be anybody really, well anyone that is not tanking and/or has god-awful management (Suns, Knicks).

    Ouch, another Warriors bit the dust. Wish him all the best!

    Next NBA season will be a damn interesting one...

    We saw that team in game 3 of the finals and they got wrecked. I don't think that's a playoff team either.
