2. Stay in the moment
Drama in the NBA has never been more prevalent due to social media. The players deal with a constant wave of pressure to live up to standards. It is important the Golden State Warriors keep their head above water.
There is no doubt that the Warriors are hearing the criticism. They know that every team in the league is praying on their downfall and hoping the dynasty is over. It is up to the players to prove the world wrong once again.
This is exactly what the Chicago Bulls had to do in Michael Jordan’s last season. Jordan was constantly pelted with questions about his future but the GOAT always remained fixated on the task in front of him. Nothing distracted Jordan from his goal of winning another championship.
The Warriors must make this their same goal. Don’t engage in petty back and forths with reporters or opponents. Stay in the moment and keep your eyes on the prize.
