Warriors fans have seen years and years and years and years and years of futility. "Taaaaaank!" and "Lotto baaaaalls!" have been our battle cries at this time of the season. Today, we're already guaranteed a winning season, and barring a collapse of Warriors proportion, we're poised to make a return to playoffs.
We as Warriors fans must be very grateful for our success this season. And we must not gloat and berate on those teams who are less fortunate than us and headed to the lottery.
Unless it's the Lakers.
The Lakers are a 1/2 game behind the Jazz and currently in 9th, so they're not out of the playoffs yet. Nevertheless, nothing would please me more than seeing the much talked about Lakers miss the playoffs. All-Star lineup? Headed to the Finals? Hahahaha!
And that's why you must watch tonight's game - Mavericks @ Lakers - to root for the Mavericks to knock the Lakers further out of the playoff picture, so we can laugh and laugh and laugh some more!
