Warriors Join Dynasty History

We find ourselves at the end of yet another NBA season. The Golden State Warriors closed out the Boston Celtics in six games, securing their fourth title in 8 seasons and cementing them in NBA history as a top-tier dynasty.
Before this season, only four teams have been able to capture four titles in an eight-year span. The Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili trio brought the San Antonio Spurs to four titles spanning from 1999 to 2007. The legendary Chicago Bulls duo of Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen won six titles from 1991 to 1998, arguably one of the most dominant teams to ever grace the court. The Boston Celtics and legendary Bill Russell took the fourth title in an eight-year span accomplishment to a new level. The Celtics may have won four titles in an eight-year period but what is most impressive is the eleven titles in thirteen years. The Celtics won every title from 1957 to 1969, besides ‘58 and ‘67. That feat is unheard of in todays landscape. The Lakers were the first team to accomplish the feat and the only franchise to do it twice. The first time was a stretch in the 1950s. Then known as the Minneapolis Lakers, they won titles in ‘50, ‘52, ‘53 and ‘54 led by league pioneer George Mikan. After that, Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and James Worthy helped the Los Angeles Lakers franchise explode back onto the scene winning titles in ‘80, ‘82, ‘85, ‘87 and ‘88. Understandably, its a nine-year span, but with five rings it’s worth the mention.

This Golden State Warriors run has been special, especially this year. Centered around the future Hall of Famer players Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green, they have created a change in the way the game is played, focusing heavily on three-point shooting. That scoring ability was on full display in the 2022 NBA Finals. The Warriors attempted 43 or more three-point shots in three of their six games this series. That accounts for three of the top six spots ever in NBA Finals history, this team shoots at a historically high clip. The Warriors attempted 42.5 three-point attempts per game in the NBA Finals and Steph Curry was the only player in double digit attempts per game sitting at 11.8 attempts per game. Curry hit at a 43.7% clip shooting 11.8 three-point attempts per game. Read that sentence again.

Andrew Wiggins exploded onto the scene this playoff run and especially in the Finals. Wiggins, who was the #1 overall pick in 2014, had a lot of expectations coming into the league that many believed he has not lived up to. The 27-year-old out of Kansas showed his abilities and tenacity this Finals run, leading the team in rebounds (8.8 RPG) and blocks (1.5 BPG) while still being the second scoring leader per game in the series.
Klay Thompson and Draymond Green both seemed to struggle in terms of their usual production on the games biggest stage but were still able to contribute to key moments and big shots. Klay chipped in 17 PPG on 35.1% shooting from deep. Draymond, who found himself with more fouls than points at one point, turned it around in the last two games and lead the team in assists over the six games.
My biggest notice of the series was the play of young upcoming star in Jordan Poole. The 23-year-old out of Michigan played with no fear, was a huge spark plug for the team and hit an insane half court buzzer-beater because, why not?

This Golden State Warriors team was unlike others we have seen before them. There was no Kevin Durant to give the media an excuse as to why the Warriors are champions. There was no excuse that they were playing a Lebron James-led Cleveland Cavaliers team that is injured or missing key players. This was a complete team, built from the ground up and this Finals propelled Stephen Curry into a top-10 argument for greatest players to ever grace the hardwood.

Invest In Trae Young Memorabilia Now

Even at 180 pounds soaking wet, Trae Young is destined to be a giant in the memorabilia industry. Despite playing on a rebuilding Hawks, Young is putting the league on notice. Trae Young burst onto the scene in 2017 when he was breaking scoring records at Oklahoma. In his one season in his hometown of Norman, OK, Young posted an unthinkable 27 points, 4 rebound and 8.7 assists line earning him 1st Team All-American Honors. As we have seen with undersized guards coming out of college, the skeptics were unsure if Young’s flashy game would translate to the pro level. Trae Young quieted his critics with a 1st Team All-Rookie team in 2018. The Hawks guard known as “Ice Trae” was efficient as a first year player and the momentum has shown early in 2019-2020.

Trae Young dazzled in his 2019 season opener with nearly posted a triple double in Detroit. Young’s unqiue style on the court has novice fans noticing his talents. The Hawks are one of the lesser followed teams in the sport but Trae Young will certainly be on network television often as his game has become must-see TV. Many experts have likened his game to that of a young Stephen Curry. The three point shooting, flashy passing and exceptional handles are on par with Curry. The sky is the limit for Trae Young at 21-years old. His Rookie card market has taken off with many collectors bidding his prices up. Keep an eye on where to get a Trae Young autograph for under $50. His signed cards are often posted to eBay with affordable starting bids.

Trae Young’s memorabilia market is growing rapidly with each big game. Signed Spalding Basketballs are the most common collectible selling on a daily basis. The Hawks unique black jersey with highlighter yellow are big sellers in the NBA shops, too. Young’s signature is relatively full compared to many other rookies. You will see a full “T”, followed with some wavy “rae”. The last name has a big, loopy “Y” with a decent “oung” behind it. It today’s signature climate, anything more than a first and last initial can be considered a small victory. We have not seen very many signatures with the #11 involved which is good and bad in case he ever changes numbers or teams. The best item to get signed to protect your long-term value is an official NBA basketball.

Players like Trae Young do not come around very often and when they do, it is a mad dash to get early signatures from the star. His market is growing rapidly as he makes his case for the Eastern Conference All Star team. Oklahoma basketball fans have had the privilege of seeing Blake Griffin and Buddy Hield but Trae Young was the most sensational of all of them. Young is now the face of the Hawks and soon could be the face of Atlanta sports who desperately need some positive news. The Hawks are a team on the rise and need to be taken seriously in 2019-2020.
