The Warriors have become bigger than just basketball

The Golden State Warriors are officially a phenomenon, and that’s what we talked a lot about on the “NBA This Week” show.

The Warriors have the longest sellout streak in the NBA, their television ratings are unprecedented, and tons of bars and restaurants throughout the Bay Area are now packed on nights of Warriors’ games. They are absolutely, positively must-see TV, and they aren’t just a story in the Bay Area or even regionally anymore.

Who would have thought it, but Stephen Curry is now our Magic Johnson, our Larry Bird and, yes, our Michael Jordan. He’s that popular and he’s that good. The Warriors aren’t just an incredible story, they are the biggest story … in all of sports. And this team is your team.

John Dickinson and I also got into specifics about the Western Conference and how it’s beginning to shake out. The boys, while allowing Warriors fans to bask in the glow of a 20-0 start, also reminded the fans that there’s still a team out there the Warriors haven’t gotten over on: The San Antonio Spurs.
