TEAM BIZ 💙💛💙
Sports Illustrated is honoring the Warriors with its 2018 Sportsperson of the Year Award. For sustained excellence, business innovation and cultural impact. For injecting joy into the game and setting fire to conventional wisdom. For winning with a center built like a forward, a point guard built like a featherweight and an offense predicated on the idea that stars want nothing more than to pass the ball to someone who will pass the ball to someone else who might shoot from 27 feet. For thinking the game and speaking out. For being fun to love and fun to hate. For rewarding the stubborn faith of the Oakland fans, not only with titles but also a basketball purist’s approach. And, of course, for always keeping things interesting.
After appearing in four consecutive Finals and winning three, including sweeping the Cavs in June, the Warriors have dominated the last half-decade of professional basketball. They now teeter on the edge of historic greatness, the kind of extended run few franchises ever engineer. Title windows open and close. The Warriors—perhaps foolishly, perhaps admirably—believe they can knock out the glass altogether. .
