Warriors

Some good old classic "bulletin-board material."

That's what former Warriors general manager Larry Riley may have provided Golden State.

"The Warriors can't win it all unless Curry's healthy, I don't think," Riley said on KNBR 680. "If he somehow disappears or has another injury, it's gonna be very tough for the Warriors to win -- in spit of how great Durant will be."

Of course, you already know Steve Kerr disagrees.

"We're perfectly capable of beating anybody -- regular season or playoffs -- we can beat anybody without Steph," Kerr told reporters on Monday.

Even if Curry gets back to 100 percent, Riley doesn't believe the Warriors are the overwhelming favorites to win the title again.

"I see it as nothing better than 50-50 if they're healthy," Riley added. "And there's nothing wrong with that ... nobody hands you a championship. I would probably say that the Warriors would have the advantage, except for the fact that they are coming off of injuries. There is that uncertainty.

"And they're not going to be playing at home."

April 14 can't get here soon enough...
