The Golden State super team is in big big trouble. Last night, Zaza Pachulia was bodied by Marcin Gortat, the result was him being thrown to the ground, and directly into Kevin Durant's knee. Right when Durant grabbed his knee and was hobbling, I immediately asssumed the worst. When he was able to limp off the court into the lockerrom was when I started to think, oh maybe it's not catastrophic. Now that the diagnosis is out, KD and the Warriors season has some serious doubts starting to creep in. They're saying he's out for at least 4 weeks, and then he'll go in for a follow up MRI to see how he has or has not recovered. That'll be judgement day for the Golden State Warriors.
If KD can't comeback, you can just call off the rest of the season and give the Cavs the trophy right now. Without KD the Warriors might not even make it through the western conference, let alone be able to snatch the crown away from the Cavs who have only improved in recent days with the Deron Williams and Andrew Bogut signings.The Cavs will probably go 16-0 and win the NBA championship in the most dominant fashion in history, if KD can't comeback. Rockets Spurs, and Clippers all could give the Warriors a run for their money in the west. Think about it the Warriors lost a lot of depth on their bench and their interior presence when making room for Durant. Now the Warriors could pay the ultimate price. If they lose with or without Durant the pressure is only going to build, the Warriors absolutely can not let this super team fail or it'll be the biggest embarrassment in league history.
If Durant is able to come back beginning of April like the Warriors are hoping, this whole injury will mean nothing. As long as he's 100% of course, if it's effecting his game that could make all the difference, but if he's completely fine it'll be like this never happened. Warriors are getting the #1 seed regardless they aren't going to just start tanking that's just unrealistic, they have a big enough lead to hold it for the last month of the season. I hate KD, I think he's a baby back bitch, however I hope he comes back before the playoffs so this entire NBA season isn't an entire waste. We've waited months and we are so close to playoff basketball if there isn't a Cavs-Warriors NBA Finals part 3 with both teams at full strength this entire season will be one of the worst in NBA history
