Golden St Warriors: Phantom “Back to Back” NBA Champs

GSW Feat

The Golden State Warriors just couldn’t quite do it, there will be no “Back to Back” championship for the Bay Area as the Warriors came just a few crucial points short against the Cleveland Cavaliers tonight in Oakland… meanwhile the City of Cleveland is enjoying the end of a lengthy championship drought.

The Warriors would have been the first back to back NBA champions since the 2012-2013 Miami Heat.

Below is a collection of what would have been sold in stores to fans had the Warriors capped off their record-setting season with a championship, as you’d expect most of the merchandise features the “BACK 2 BACK” tag, some make note of the 73-wins the team had during the regular season. (there’s also a piece of merch in the collection below that misspells “Warriors” as “Warrios”… see if you can find it!)

We’ll start with what the players would have worn while celebrating on the court following the game, the “locker room” collection. Everything else is what would have been made available to fans, known as “retail-only”.

Sorry Golden State, but you have nothing to be ashamed of. You’ll always have 2015.
