The Golden State Warriors are tumbling down the Western Conference standings and Nick Wright isn’t letting it go unnoticed. The Fox Sports personality didn’t let his doubters off the hook when discussing the Steph Curry-led Warriors.
“Before this year I had the audacity to ask what if the Warriors are bad?” Wright said on First Things First. “What does it mean for Steph (Curry)? Now we are fifty games in, and the team’s terrible.”
Golden State is 23-27 and has lost seven of their past eight games. They are clinging to a half-game lead over the New Orleans Pelican for the final Western Conference play-in spot. Wright pointed out how early in the season, critics quickly pointed out his question as an “insult” to Curry.
Wright had this to say on Curry and the Warriors when the season tipped off back in December. “We know, in the NBA, a singularly all-time great player is not supposed to miss the playoffs. I’m concerned he can’t do it, that he’s not built to carry an under-talented team.”
