Colin Cowherd: Steph Curry's Broken Hand Could Save Warriors Dynasty

Colin Cowherd: “The Warriors have gone from a dynasty to the Miami Dolphins in a month, but strangely there is a great silver lining here. Now, Golden State can showcase D’Angelo Russell statistically, Steph will be fresh for next year, there will be no rush to bring Klay Thompson back, and you can check out all your young players… This is actually great. They would have been the fifth seed in the West; that’s purgatory in this league. When you’re drafting 15 or 16th you can never get ‘The Guy’. Now the Warriors can tank without trying to tank and get a lottery pick. Bob Myers is one of the sharpest personnel guys in the NBA and they would have never gotten this pick without the injury, and would have just ended up as the 8th or 9th seed in the West. The NBA Draft historically runs out of stars after pick 9. Next year, they will have Steph, Klay, Draymond, Kevon Looney, whatever they get in a D’Angelo Russell trade, and a lottery pick selected by a front office who know what they’re doing ” (Full Audio at Bottom of Page)

Listen to Colin Cowherd explain why Steph Curry’s broken left hand could actually be a blessing in disguise that could save a Golden State Warriors dynasty that was rapidly fading with the exodus of Kevin Durant.

Curry’s injury will sideline the two-time MVP for multiple months, obviously dooming a season that was already likely to be without Klay Thompson for its entirety. Colin says there is a massive silver lining for Golden State, however, considering the team will now plummet to the bottom of the standings in a hurry.

Colin says the team can now: 1. Showcase D’Angelo Russell all season as the primary scorer and further boost his value in a trade. 2. Shut down Klay for the season and not even entertain a scenario rushing him back. 3. See which of their young players can actually ball out. And 4. Put themselves into position for a high lottery pick in the upcoming draft.

Check out the audio below as Colin details why a Big Three of Steph, Klay, and Draymond, all healthy for the start of next season, with a lottery pick added to the roster, and a formidable trade haul for D’Angelo Russell could have the Warriors back in the NBA Finals in 2020/2021.
