the warriors are bored, messy, and lead the nba in drama


oakland — the box score would tell you that the warriors’ 120-117 win over the washington wizards friday was just another come-from-behind victory from golden state.nothing notable, right? the warriors come back from 18-point deficits to win all the time.only this game was anything but normal.it was chaotic, disjointed, combative, and borderline unexplainable.it was messy. it was, above all else, dramatic.which is to say was the perfect encapsulation for the start of the warriors’ 2017-18 season.drama.normally, that’s considered a bad thing. but i’m not using that term in the pejorative sense here. in the warriors’ situation, drama isn’t an inherently negative thing. nor is it necessarily an unexpected thing — the warriors draw a lot of attention, and that’s a key ingredient in drama.but t
