Normally when we do a Warrior Wonder here at GSoM, we have the impossible task of figuring out which Golden State player had the most thrilling performance. This time it would appear the Warriors players themselves have already picked who was the memorable man of the evening.
Funny enough, it wasn’t even a hooper that was nominated last night. It was a referee!

Let’s go to the footage!
The ending of Warriors-Timberwolves was the most ridiculous thing you'll see this regular season... pic.twitter.com/40tV0xWncY— Bleacher Report (@BleacherReport) March 30, 2019
Clearly, the Warriors had reason to be annoyed. LOL. The Warriors weren’t exactly enamored with the decision making of Mr. Kogut last night, and used their champion’s prerogative to voice their displeasure.

What does it all mean? Just more funny drama that should add some fuel to the Warriors quest for a three-peat.

And then my personal favorite part, when the Dubs haters open their mouths.
Cry more. Literally the most universally disliked team on the planet, because when things actually don’t go their way via officiating once every 50 years, they act like this. Good Lord, they’re insufferable. pic.twitter.com/j19F4UZpVO— Adam Clanton (@adamclanton) March 30, 2019
I really enjoy hearing people get loud about the Dubs before the playoffs start. Soon, they will all be washed away into irrelevance after the third straight banner is raised in the Golden Empire.
