The NBA's systematic dismantling of the Golden State Warriors Franchise

The suspension of Draymond Green for game 3 with the Warriors trailing 0-2 in the series is the equivalent of a Curry dagger as the clock expires. The NBA agenda for the 2023 playoffs is obvious and revealing. The guiding light of the NBA's front office would welcome a Boston Celtics vs. Los Angeles Lakers Final, and the cinderella story of LeBron James winning his 6th Larry O'Brien Trophy, while denying Curry the opportunity to put the same in his trophy case.

Their effort has been subtle at times, but now their agenda has become blatant and hostile towards the league's most successful.

The effort has been ongoing for years, from the Adam Silver directed referees and their biased calls, to the new crippling CBA, to mishandling of the Green's flagrant two in the most critical part of the fourth quarter in game 2, and Green's suspension for game 3. Silver has used Draymond Green antics to cost the Golden State Warriors one championship and now has put the team from the bay in jeopardy of losing another.

Golden State sent Adam Silver and Joe Dumars a clear message with career efforts from the players who took to the court on Thursday Night, with a 114-97 tip-off to final buzzer victory over the Sacramento Kings at Chase Center. With Stephen Curry's 36 points, and a stellar effort from Kevon Looney, the contribution of the Warriors bench from Divincenzo, Kuminga, and Moody, the game was never in doubt.

The Warriors short-handed, with their floor general, Draymond Green, serving his suspension, and Gary Payton II home suffering from an unknown illness, the Warriors extended their Chase Center record to a 33-8. Down two games to one in the series, the Dubs will take to the floor on Sunday afternoon focused on sending Sacramento home with the series knotted at two-two.
