What Had Happened Was: 10/26/16
Oh, you don’t know? We got you.
After the Golden State Warriors blew a 3-1 lead to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2016 NBA Finals, their 2016-17 season started off as everyone expected — with a 29-point loss to the San Antonio Spurs at home.
Yes, really. The Warriors went 7-of-33 from 3-point land, gave up 81 points combined to Kawhi Leonard, LaMarcus Aldridge and Jonathon Simmons, and were outrebounded by 20.
We get it, everybody wanted to see the warriors lose…..

3. IT ALL MAKES SENSE NOW
Don’t forget that President Barack Obama turns into “Barry” when it comes to the clapback. We know it was right there, but not everyone takes advantage of such a golden opportunity.
Trump: Obama will go down as the worst president in the history of the US.
Obama: Well at least I will go down as a president.
