Warriors are really embracing the ‘villains’ tag

How do you react when you’ve been designated as the villains of the NBA? If you’re the Golden State Warriors, you embrace it.

Many NBA fans and pundits are unhappy with the Warriors after Kevin Durant decided to join an already star-studded line-up.

Some have even labelled them the villains of the NBA this year, but the Warriors themselves don’t appear to be too concerned.

Not if this party they threw recently is any indication, anyway.

Draymond Green shared a photo on Instagram of the team standing under giant balloons that spelled out ‘Super Villains’:

Andre Iguodala even introduced a new “Super Villains” Snapchat filter with his Friday story:

So if Golden State are the bad guys, what does this make Lebron James and the Cavs. The Avengers?
