Following a disappointing ending to the 2022-23 NBA season, there are many opinions about the Golden State Warriors.
The Warriors entered this season as the defending champions, set to extend their dominance over the league.
Nevertheless, many things throughout the season got in the way of those plans and the Los Angeles Lakers eliminated them from the 2023 playoffs.
After this game, many people celebrated the Warriors’ defeat, including Skip Bayless, who was very happy with their loss.
Steph got put to sleep. Draymond got silenced. No more chest-beating, showboating, hot-dogging, front-running. Loved it.

Golden State has a lot of work to do in order to challenge for the championship next season.
It won’t be easy, as it starts with the future decision of general manager Bob Myers.
Jordan Poole appeared to be a focal point of criticism for his lack of effort during the playoffs.
He wasn’t the same player the Warriors saw last season.
His relationship with Draymond Green wasn’t the best either, and that may have lingered throughout the year.
Poole struggled many times in the playoffs, earning a lot of criticism for his performances.
Klay Thompson also struggled in the playoffs and had many games with underwhelming performances.
The Warriors will need to make some changes this summer and evaluate some important contract decisions such as Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.NEXT: Steve Kerr Gets Honest About Warriors Being Eliminated By Lakers
