Why the warriors won't win the NBA in 2017 The most hated team in the nba

The Warriors in 2016, the most dominant team in NBA history?

Last year the warriors achieve the best record in NBA history (73 wins and 9 losses). It seemed to be the year in which a new dinasty was born, repeating the championship for second year in a row. Everything was going as expected, until they face the thunder in the conference finals.

The Warriors won because the Thunder lost focus

The Cavaliers

The Cavaliers are a really cohesive unit, with great players and team chemistry. Moreover, they have included some key players to help in their weaker points

The evidence

Right now the Warriors are first in their conference, but showing some signs of what can be the greatest bust in NBA history. They have already lost the same number of games as the last season and they are showing the
