The Golden State Warriors were underrated last season until analysts could no longer ignor
what was right in front of them. Even before the NBA Finals, the Boston Celtics were touted as a bad matchup for Golden State.
Despite winning that series in six games after burning through the Western Conference
with relative ease, the Warriors are still being disrespected.
The latest instance of the Warriors being underrated came from ESPN
who shared that their win prediction model projected the Warriors to finish 8th in the Western Conference next season
Steph Curry, who admits he sees everything, certainly saw this
In a comment on ESPN's NBA page, Curry reminded the network that they gave the Warriors a 14% chance to win the Finals last season, which of course aged incredibly poorly
As the defending champions, the Warriors should be revered as at least one of the top teams in their conference
