The Golden State Warriors, led by Stephen Curry, have faced a frustrating start to the 2023-24 NBA season. With a current record of 9-11, the team has struggled to maintain leads, including a recent disappointment where they squandered a 20-plus point second-half advantage against the Los Angeles Clippers.
Former Boston Celtics star Kevin Garnett didn’t mince words when discussing the Warriors’ performance on his KG Certified podcast, joined by his former Celtics teammate Paul Pierce. Garnett expressed his skepticism about the Warriors, stating, “This is not a playoff team,” and he went further by asserting that they aren’t even a play-in team. He emphasized, “I’m just watching teams get better than them.”
The Warriors have faced challenges during the early part of the season, including giving up significant leads in games against the Sacramento Kings and the Clippers. While it’s too soon to hit the panic button, especially with Stephen Curry’s continued excellence, Golden State fans were undoubtedly hoping for a stronger start to the season.
