“I’m like, this nigga is from Milwaukee!”



Boosie, an American rapper, spoke at length about the Golden State Warriors, Stephen Curry and others in an interview with DJ Vlad. He spoke of Curry’s greatness in the 2022 NBA Finals, even comparing him to Michael Jordan.

However, Boosie made a special mention of Warriors guard Jordan Poole, a native of Milwaukee:

“I have a new boy. Jordan Poole is my new boy, because he’s from Milwaukee. So, I had to let him know, bro. I didn’t know he was from Milwaukee until I google him. I google him on the court. I’m like, that nigga from Milwaukee. I’ma end up getting a jersey. I need my jersey”

Boosie then mentioned the strength of the Warriors roster and praised the Golden State Warriors:

“Hey, they’re nice, bro. You gotta admit it. You got (James) Wiseman coming, bro. Like, Wiseman is a beast. Like, these dudes just keep getting better.”

Boosie’s comments about Golden State hit home. The Warriors synthesized a largely drafted championship roster and found keeping their roster intact was a matter of plenty.

Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, Kevon Looney, Jordan Poole, Moses Moody and Jonathan Kuminga were all acquired in the draft. Andrew Wiggins gives the Warriors a long wing small forward who can play great defense and rebound fiercely.

The Warriors brought Looney back for pennies on the dollar. John Hollinger of The Athletic estimated Looney’s market value at $12.5 million (annual salary). But on his current contract extension, Looney will earn an average annual salary of $7.5 million.

Money problem for the Golden State Warriors

Two of the Golden State Warriors’ Big Three — Klay Thompson and Draymond Green — are entering the penultimate year of their contracts. Thompson was drafted in 2011 with the 11th pick, while Green was drafted in 2012 with the 35th pick.

Both were crucial in leading the Warriors to four NBA titles in eight years. However, with owner Joe Lacob saying keeping the budget below $400 million is non-negotiable, either could hit free agency in 2024.

Poole is due for an extension and is still on his rookie contract, while Wiggins is entering the final year of his contract before becoming a free agent next year.

Although the future looks bright, that future depends on the front office making tough decisions.
