Golden State Warriors presented with Larry O’Brien championship trophy

The Golden State Warriors are an impressive franchise. Through most of their history, the Warriors have been a middling franchise. Most overlook that the Warriors are actually one of the NBA’s original franchises. Much of this is due to the Warriors going through relocations and name changes. After that, the Warriors suffered a fourteen year playoff drought. In 2007, the Golden State Warriors shocked the basketball world, but were irrelevant by 2009.

The Golden State Warriors drafted Stephen Curry in 2009. That same year, the Warriors were purchased by new ownership. Under the new ownership of Joe Lacob, he was determined to turn the Warriors into a dynasty. Heading into 2010, the Warriors had one playoff appearance in sixteen years. On top of that, the Warriors had an injury prone Stephen Curry. Despite that, Joe Lacob decided to build the team around Curry.

The Golden State Warriors were late bloomers. Curry didn’t lead the Warriors into the playoffs until his fourth season. As a result, Stephen Curry was not considered a superstar player. Curry and Klay Thompson formed the powerful “Splash Brothers” duo. In 2014, the Warriors nearly upset the Clippers. A year later, they won their first of four titles. Thursday saw the Warriors beat the Boston Celtics for the 2022 title. As Curry won Finals MVP, here is the presentation.
