Get off my lawn! That’s how ex-NBA players sound when they talk about the Warriors. All of them say it’s too easy now. The Warriors aren’t playing against great defenses or even better, they’ll knock Steph Curry on his a**. How about the Warriors don’t play real basketball.
Every ex-player has nothing nice or good to say about them and if they do it’s followed by a cheap shot to discredit SOMETHING about them.
Well, Reggie Miller spoke to For The Win and had some thoughts about the Warriors backlash,
“As old time guys and former players, we have to embrace change. It’s hard for old players to embrace change because whether you played in the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, [we all had] different rules. Basketball has evolved and it has changed,” he said. “Change is good and we’ve got to embrace Steph and what he’s doing.”
Miller also mentioned that some of the harsh backlash has to do with them being compared to the Bulls.
“You’ve got a team that shoots a lot of threes that’s almost as brash as those Bulls teams and we don’t want to accept that. We’ve got to let that go,” Miller said. “We don’t want to let go of Michael Jordan. It’s okay! He will still be great. We will still view him and that team as the greatest ever. It’s just that there’s a new kid on the block.”
Unfortunately, people are to concerned with discreditng the Warriors and not realizing this something we won’t see for a long not time if not ever again. We should enjoy this.
