The Golden State Warriors and The Avengers Have Similar Story Arcs...
With Demarcus Cousins and now Kevin Durant both hurt heading into Game 6 vs. the Houston Rockets, I couldn't help but notice some similarities between this Golden State Warriors team and the story arc of The Avengers. Let me attempt to explain...
Stephen Curry – Captain America
- The First Avenger joins the Warriors team after being drafted 7th overall in 2009
Klay Thompson – Iron Man
- Klay signed a toaster. Toaster uses electricity, like Iron Man. Also... ***SPOILER ALERT*** He could "snap" and no longer be an Avenger after this season. ***SPOILER ALERT***
Draymond Green – Hulk
- I mean, come on… you knew this one.
Andre Iguodala – Thor
- Former Finals MVP and the arms of an Asgardian god.
Shaun Livingston – Black Widow
- A technical mid-range assassin.
Andrew Bogut – Hawkeye
- An original that leaves the team only to rejoin for the final battle.
Kevin Durant – Bucky Barnes
- Fought against the Warriors (Winter Soldier), failed, then joined the Warriors (Avengers)… Then gets injured (snapped).
DeMarcus Cousins – Groot
- Was a big strong player, gets hurt, grows up again only to get injured again (snapped).
LeBron James – (Multiple roles) – Loki (Avengers), Baron Zemo (Civil War), Ultron (Age of Ultron)
Thanos – James Harden?
THE AVENGERS – 2015
– Avengers win vs. the Cavaliers and Loki
CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER/CIVIL WAR – 2016
– Avengers defeat the Thunder and Bucky Barnes after coming back from a 3-1 deficit. The Cavaliers and Baron Zemo defeat the Avengers by turning them against each other. The Hulk calls up Bucky Barnes who then joins The Avengers…
AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON – 2017/2018
– The Avengers win back to back championships vs. the Cavaliers and Ultron
AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR – 2019 playoffs
– The Avengers assemble biggest and best team yet by adding Groot (amongst others) and then Thanos snaps (injures) Bucky and Groot…
AVENGERS: ENDGAME - 2019 Finals
Okay, so maybe it isn't perfect, but it's close enough for you to make it this far down the page.
Either way, the Warriors are in the Endgame now...
