Hey guys,

I know I’m kinda the new guy here, but since we went down 2-1 to OKC, I was just wondering if we should be hella freaking out right now.

Sry if this steps on toes...

Nah, we’re cool, Andy. Nothing to worry about, me and Klay will hit a bunch of three’s in the next game and Draymond’ll be great and, like, Andre or Shaun will have some sort of crazy good game out of nowhere. That’s how it always happens and it’s no different this time around. Honestly, I don’t know HOW to freak out, anyway.

—Steph

P.S. Nice use of ‘Hella' Anderson! You’ll be saying you’re "from the Bay Area” in no time!

Totally! I agree with Steph, couldn’t have put it better myself! Nothing to worry about AT ALL!

Hey guys,

I switched to my personal email and took Steph off this thread.

I AM HELLA FREAKING OUT RIGHT NOW!

We could lose! That would be so embarrassing! People were calling us the best team OF ALL TIME and we’re about to lose to a team from OKLAHOMA?!?!

I think Steph might be a little too calm about things. And not just in terms of the Conference Finals, by the way. I once saw him walking barefoot over a bed of hot coals while texting, he stopped for like 20 seconds just to think about what emoji to use. He used the $ eyes and tongue face and then continued casually walking the rest of the way. Calm and cool the whole time! That’s, like, what insane people do, dude.

Anyway, are you guys freaking like I’m freaking?!

Sorry I got this started, guys, but very happy to know I’m not the only one hella freaking out.

—Anderson

P.S. Does anyone know who to talk to to change my email address to the Warriors? I’ve had a ticket out with I.T. for, like, months...

I’m freaking out and…I like it? Haha, just kidding ;)

But, yeah, I’m freaking out.

—Andre

P.S. Did you guys see Draymond kick that dude in the stones last night? Take a look:

That’s not a hit to the stones... THIS is a hit to the stones.


—Andrew

P.S. Feels like a lot of you assume I’m Russian or Serbian or something but, no, I'm Australian! So, let me know if you have any questions about Australia or are looking to hang out or go to any clubs anytime...

P.P.S That was a Crocodile Dundee from Australia reference I made earlier, FYI.

Dudes,

I can’t apologize enough about how I played last night. Kicking that dude in the nuts was NOT a smart move and I regretted it the moment my shin hit his raspberry patch. Honestly, I’m afraid I might get suspended so, yes, I’m for sure hella freaking out right now, too (plz don’t tell Steph!).

OK guys, the smart thing to do here is to admit we are in a bit of panic mode, talk to Steph about it, and get everyone on the same page so we have a game plan going into Wednesday night. I’m a veteran leader off the bench, I’ll lead the way!

SHAUN, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO DON’T DO IT! HE’LL KICK US OFF THE TEAM HE HAS THAT KIND OF POWER!!!!!!

Subject: RE: A question....

Hey Steph,

Me and the rest of the guys were talking and we are all actually kind of hella freaking out over being down 2-1 to OKC. Just thought we should let you know so we’re all on the same page. We may be hella freaking out but it’s only because we all want to win so bad.

Looking forward to practice this afternoon! Let’s get ‘em!

Hey Shaun (and the rest),

So let me get this straight. We stumble a little and lose a game or two and all of a sudden you are ready to freak out? And you talk about it behind my back? Was Klay behind this? I made you and I can break you, Klay!

That’s it: I’ll win it all by myself (especially if Draymond gets suspended for kicking that dude in the bean sprouts) and then after the finals, mark my words, you’re all getting traded to the Milwaukee Bucks.

See ya’ll at practice. No one make eye contact with me.
