With the extended layoff, I'm sure we’ll continue to see articles about how terrible and boring this rematch is. If the Warriors win, people will say they’re ruining basketball; if they lose, their first title will be considered a fluke. Either way Stephen Curry will still probably be considered soft, Kevin Durant still a coward or whatever for leaving OKC, and Draymond Green will somehow still be a nuisance.

You're going to hear all of that, one way or another. So I strongly to encourage you to just shut out all the noise and continue to enjoy this run instead of seeking acceptance from haters. We’ll be here to help you keep things in perspective.
