warriors training staff is gonna get canned this summer. The inability to keep guys healthy is insane. Boogie goes out 2 games into the post season, then kd, then klay. theres gotta be something they are doing different than other teams.

GREATNESS ONE

As much as I enjoyed the Warriors losing, watching a injury like this or Durantís sucks because it legit will change them for the rest of their careers. The end of a dynasty happened this series..

The timing of the joke might be a little off (so I apologize for who I offend) but:

KD opts into next year
Klay Opts into next year

Warriors apply for injury exception relief for the two quite possible season ending injuries for next year:

Golden State goes on to use that cap space to go sign Kawhi Leonard

No, warriors are just the best at resting guys, thatís why they didnít play Klay or Durant game six. They are classy and caring enough to give the most rest to there guys🤓

But for real though. Nothing they can do to prevent injuries like Durantís and Klay. Well with Durant, I kinda feel like everyone was in on it. Even Durant. What happened to Llay was just a freak thing where he landed awkwardly because he was thrown off balance in the air. Just bad luck if anything

If thats possible and Kawhi wants to sign there more power to him.

Damn, didn't look that bad. Apparently so. Basically ensures GSW won't have a realistic shot at the championship next season with he and Durant out with severe injuries. Wonder what they'll do in FA to help Curry weather the storm. Definitely not what they were hoping for with the new arena.

Damn that really sucks! Dudeís a baller. Heard he was out there doing jumping jacks and running to try get back in the game! Thatís what I call a big heart. Now that He and KD has shown royalty to GS by going out there hurt to try 3 peat and got season ending injuries from it GS will have to do the same. Theyíll have to pay them up and show them the same royalty. They both should pick up their player option, rehab while getting paid big and hopefully come back healthy and get paid even bigger.
I was so looking forward to this FA but damn! These injuries changed everything. Not that Klay was going to leave anyway but KD almost was going to leave but to where? We wonít know this season

What we're doing different than other teams is making the finals 5 years straight. That's a lot of basketball, that's a big difference than ending at the end of the regular season. That's almost 2.5 extra months per year.

It was bound to happen. Nature of the beast.

Yeah, more games = more stress on muscles and more chances to get hurt. Simple math, Stylez.

I donít think this changes much about the offseason.

GS will still resign Thompson to a MAX

KD is still a wild card. GS will offer him a MAX but if he still wants to leave Iím sure NYK will still offer it to him and heíll take it if he wants to go there. Opting in is a last resort for KD if nobody offers him a MAX. But if they do heís taking it because his future is so uncertain. Take the money and years if itís there.

The only thing this may change is Draymond. If GS wonít have Thompson or KD either way next year. With little cap maneuverability they may take this next year to reshuffle the deck and plan for 2021 when Thompson and possibly KD return.

Trade Draymond and get what you can for him. Trade any other vets and try to get their contracts off the books. Limit Curryís minutes and just build around a younger nucleus so when Thompson returns youíre recharged and ready to go

When they showed the replay from the other angle my stomach twisted. It was a nasty landing and no fault to the Dubs medical staff in any way. Hopefully he has a full recovery.

Klay's injury had 0 to do with any of that...that same play happens in game 1 of the regular season and the result is the exact same....he was fouled, came down badly turning his ankle which caused his knee to turn badly...game 1 or game 101 it's still an ACL tear.

Obviously I hate to see the Warriors lose but it was even worse seeing Durant and now Klay go down with these types of injuries. Klay has a lot of heart and I'm already looking to see the guy back out on the court.

the warriors injuries arent really wear and tear injuries though. Also- when boogie cousins tears his quad in his 2nd playoff game with us.... please dont tell me its because the warriors have gone to the finals 5 straight times. Its a ridiculous argument.

This isn't how Disabled Player Exceptions work. You can only have one, and it's only worth the MLE. Either way, the Warriors won't be eligible. The injury has to be expected to keep the player out through June 15th of that league year, so next year. That isn't the case for either.

Need about 8 months minimum if everything goes right. Too early to say now but itís a pretty safe bet they just hold him out all next season. Long term it makes no sense to rush him back, especially after that GS just went through

And in that same breath tell me how itís the medical staffs fault that he tore his quad. Thatís equally a ridiculous argument. Itís a sport and injuries happen. The medical staff tries to regulate their bodies and keep them as close to healthy as they can. They help them recover and try to be preventative but they canít bubble wrap these guys.

Regardless of the muscles getting more stress (which couldíve led to them being easier to bend/snap/whatever), theyíve still played a hell of a lot of games. More games = more chances to get hurt.

IIRC in this 5 year run they have played an extra seasons worth of games in the playoffs. Not to mention olympics/Fiba ball.

But to the point he was responding to: thatís not the medical staffs fault. Thereís little they could do about general wear and tear injuries. And Klays injury was an acute one not a stress injury, so even less the training staff could do aside from a hard knee brace with no reason to require it.

Some people think that the medical staff acts independently from the management. Do you believe that the management wasnt breathing down the medical staff's neck to get KD to play? The medical staff doesnt care if the team wins or not, but the management does.

when teams stay healthy- their medical staff gets positive recognition. its only fair to question the medical staff when a team has a significantly disproportional amount of serious injuries relative to other teams.

Now if your argument is that injuries are luck and they happen no matter what preparation is taken- then the whole load management and minutes restriction thing is B S

Its funny you mentioned that. When Klay went down the way he did, I immediately had a flash back of almost an identical scenario happening 6 or 7 yrs ago to a warrior. In the second game of the season- Zach Randolph bumped Brandon Rush when he was going to dunk the ball- B rush tore his acl and missed the rest of the season.

Based on Klays reaction when it happened- I thought he may have just had an mcl strain (Like Durant and Curry had). B Rush appeared to be in overwelming pain when it happened to him. The fact that Klay was running and jumping immediately afterwards just tell me Klay is absolutely savage.... he was literally trying to shake off a torn acl.

So your agrument is gien the chance to have an asset perform at a high level for 5 years if he signs the max contract you would risk a $250 million on one game, thats like you telling me you are going to the casino and I say cash out your house and take the the 200-1 shot

Its widely assumed that GS has a small shot in retaining him in free agency. The question then goes if it had been klay thompson in the exact same situation would they be more conservative with his return? Obviously all this is hypothetical, but for people to pin it on the medical staff as if the coach, the management didn't have any effect as to how this all played out is wrong. Of all the parties involved: the management, coach, teammates, and medical staff. The Medical staff has the least amount of incentive to get him back into the game during that series. For your argument,if you knew KD was leaving in free agency, would you care that much? or would you push him to get back on the court to win that championship.

The Warriors have already stated they were going to offer the MAX 5 year deal with whatever opt outs KD wanted so in their mind they have the 240M at risk as a future liability. So its the same analysis, GS with the extra year is paying 56M more. Plus pre injury it was assumed he would opt out next year and reset when the cap resets.

So no the GS Warriors don't "bet the farm". In what scenario does this make economic sense?
Only the media thinks GS was out, GS doesn't think they are out of the running.

You don't get to be a billionaire by making bad risk reward decisions, only on the internet where guys have no money do they consider risking everything.

This beyond sucks. I was never a Klay Thompson fan, but after watching him this season, I am. But this also puts the Warriors in a bind. With Durant's injury, he'll more than likely opt in of his final year which would pay him $31.5M. Do the Warriors really want to tie up $70M in cap for two guys that will more than likely miss the entire 2019/20 season? From a fan and loyalty standpoint, it would make sense that they do. Business-wise, it wouldn't make much sense. Could they do what the Spurs did? The Spurs were already a pretty good team with David Robionson and prior to Robinson getting hurt, they won 59 games. The year Robinson was injured, they tanked and won 20 games to get the #1 overall pick to draft Tim Duncan and we all know what happened after that.

Lavine tore his February 2017, didnít return until January 2018 and really wasnít himself until this season when he truly returned to form. Now Klay obviously doesnít rely on athleticism like Lavine does, but still youíre looking at December 2020 at the earliest where he can return to his true form.

Weíll get a better idea after the surgery cuz you wonít know the severity of the tear until surgeons open it up.
