Internet Makes Fun Of Warriors For Copying Cavaliers' Playoff Slogan

If you'll recall, last year, Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors blew a 3-1 lead in the 2016 NBA Finals to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

With the first round of the 2017 edition of the NBA Playoffs already heating up, predictions on who will end up hoisting the trophy by June have already been circulating online, and one of the most popular video games carrying the league's name has joined the party. But Houston's path to a title is seemingly impossible to overcome, given that they would likely have to defeat Golden State, San Antonio and Cleveland.

Aside from the NBA Playoffs, NHL was also simulated, this time by the video game "NHL 17". The Warriors swept the Portland Trailblazers in the first round, which saw the two squads battling in four tightly-contested matches.

Warriors owner Joe Lacob infamously boasted that the team was "light years ahead" of the curve, but in actuality, the Warriors might be on to something.

In the conference finals, Cleveland was pushed to the limit against Washington as the Cavaliers defeated the Wizards in seven games.

With the Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors on a crash course (Boston lost, just go with it) towards a third straight showdown in the NBA Finals, the two teams appear to be engaged in a series of passive aggressive mind games.

The Golden State Warriors announced today a new bot for Facebook Messenger, built to help our fans get answers to any of their 2017 NBA Playoff questions.

The Warriors are clearly the NBA's best team, but the Spurs have also proven to be a level above the rest of the West. San Antonio has won more than 60 games for a second straight season, and in some ways, they are more risky than San Antonio's 67-win team from 2016.

We have our results.
