Golden State Warriors stars Stephen Curry and Draymond Green remain confident that the team’s five-year run of dominance is not ready to end after it fell to the Toronto Raptors in the NBA Finals.
“We’ll be thinking about this one. It’s tough,” Curry said after Thursday night’s 114-110 loss in Game 6. “But our DNA and who we are and the character that we have on this team, I wouldn’t bet against us being back on this stage next year and going forward. So really proud of the way that we fought until the end and this five-year run’s been awesome, but definitely don’t think it’s over.”
Steph says don’t count this as the end of the #Warriors dynasty just yet:

Green echoed Curry’s sentiments, remaining buoyed by the fact the Warriors have dealt with so many emotional highs and lows over the past five years.
“I think everybody thinks it’s kind of the end of us,” Green said. “But that’s just not smart. We’re not done yet. We lost this year. Clearly just wasn’t our year, but that’s how the cookie crumbles sometimes. But, yeah, I hear a lot of that noise, it’s the end of a run and all that jazz. I don’t see it happening though. We’ll be back.”

The Warriors now face the strong possibility that even if they are able to retain both Durant and Thompson this summer in free agency, they will miss both All-Stars for most of next season.
What a crazy unlucky NBA Finals for the Warriors.
I think this current ‘Dynasty’ is over.
At least it certainly feels like it.
