Golden State was deflated after ending its magical season with a historic letdown.
The Golden State warriors are still searching for answers after their record setting 73 win season ended without a championship.
“It hurts, man, ” lamented Steph Curry. “Just proud of every single guy that stepped foot on the floor for our team this year. … Hopefully we’ll have many more opportunities to fight for championships and be on this stage because this is what it’s all about.”
Curry had a sub par performance in the Finals, including getting ejected in a Game Six loss.
“I was out there on the floor and thought that I could do what I needed to do to be effective in games,” said Curry. “I wasn’t 100 percent, no, but it doesn’t matter. Coming back from a knee injury, I was able to play. I was able to give it what I had, and it wasn’t enough.”
The Warriors became the first team to ever lose an NBA Finals series after being up three games to one. This comes in the wake of their winning the Western Conference Finals after going down three games to one in the series.
“To sit and dwell on it, that’s not going to do anything for me. I’m not going to sit and throw a pity party for myself or my teammates or anybody else,” said Draymond Green. “We were a minute away from winning a championship. We had a 3-1 lead. We had all the opportunities in the world we needed. Got to take your hat off to them.”
