The Golden State Warriors, a team that finished last season with the most wins of all time, reloaded this off-season by adding Kevin Durant, an MVP and scoring leader of the league. The resulting 2016-2017 has been utterly unimportant to - at the very least - the Warriors players, if not a lot of casual fans all over.

Seems like Zito and I seem to have come to the same conclusion. Other people are also noticing that the shine on this Dubs team is coming off a little bit.

For those of us who aren’t in the championship question, real basketball fans who love watching the game . . . we’re seeing some serious attrition here. A few days ago we wrote about the Jazz having the HIGHEST ticket prices for these home games. And now . . . well . . .

Yeah. The Warriors are so good that basketball games aren’t even games. And as a result, fans of basketball don’t even want to watch the Warriors play.
