With just a few weeks of the NBA regular season left, the Golden State Warriors are in a very tricky position.

They are the tenth seed in the Western Conference and just a half-game ahead of the Houston Rockets for the final Play-In spot.

The team has been struggling all season long and NBA analyst Tim Legler believes that the “Steph Curry era” of the Warriors is coming to an end.

Speaking on “Get Up,” Legler said that Curry’s chances of winning another championship with the Warriors are almost entirely gone.

“Will Steph Curry have another opportunity to win a championship? Assuming he does not play for another franchise, I don’t think it’s going to happen,” Legler said.

Legler said that the Warriors are forced to compete with a player like Curry on the roster.

He’s one of the best stars of all time and is nearing retirement, which means that they need to always put 100% focus on winning as much as possible in the present.

They cannot lay out a multi-year plan to get competitive again because they don’t want to waste any time with Curry.

Additionally, Legler said that the team doesn’t have the assets to build a win-now roster around Curry.

Many people believe the front office should blow the team up this summer if the Warriors aren’t able to make a playoff run.

But Legler claims that simply isn’t possible because they’d have no viable options.

What does all of this mean for the Warriors?

Does it mean they will continue to struggle for the rest of Curry’s career?

Or is there a chance they can surprise everyone and get back on track next season, returning to their state as one of the best teams in the league?
