Promised In 2009

The Golden State Warriors have been the most successful club in the NBA for the better part of a decade. The Warriors have made six trips to the NBA Finals since 2015, winning four of those games. Stephen Curry is the driving force behind the success of his team.

Fans’ perception of the Warriors has shifted since Curry joined the team. When Steph was selected seventh overall by the Warriors in the 2009 NBA Draft, though, the team’s situation was even more comical. The two-time NBA MVP kept his pledge in 2009 and helped the Dubs reach new heights.

The warriors’ mess is of their own making. The dysfunction in that aimless organization originates at the top. What a farce,” Woj tweeted back in 2009.

In 2009, Adrian Wojnarowski probably tweeted something that Curry saw. Two months later that same year, he supposedly replied to the tweet.

“I swear to all the Warrior supporters out there. We’ll get it figured out. According to Curry’s tweet, “if it’s the last thing we do, we will figure it out.”

The Warriors were one of the weakest teams in the NBA that year, finishing with a 26-56 record. It was clear that supporters did not have high hopes for the Dubs. After two more years of frustration, Curry and the Warriors made the playoffs in 2013.

Under Curry’s direction, they lost in the second round. The franchise’s future seemed bright from that point on. The Warriors reached the NBA Finals for the first time in 2015, and Curry won his first NBA championship.

The Warriors would win three more championships thanks to Steph, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green. In 2023, after a few more years of dominance, the Warriors have established themselves as the best team of the 2010s.

Curry is eager to reunite with Thompson and Green for another go-round. In the second round of the 2023 playoffs, the Los Angeles Lakers dispatched the Golden State Warriors.

Many people think this signals the end of the Warriors’ dynasty. Bob Myers has resigned from his position as general manager. For the upcoming season, Draymond Green will not be exercising his player option worth $27.6 million. Nevertheless, Stephen Curry has talked about perhaps running it back again.

Keeping the core of the team together for at least one more season seems like the most likely outcome for the Warriors. Exactly what Curry had in mind. The value of his opinion is debatable.

Well, it’s unclear whether or not the original starting lineup will be restored, despite Steph’s best efforts to do so. The current squad of the Dubs has been improved by the addition of Chris Paul, who they hope will help them win a title.
