Skip Bayless Responds To Draymond Green’s Warning

Undisputed hosts Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe have been deep in the NBA Playoff discussion. On Wednesday's edition of the show, the pair discussed the Golden State Warriors. The Warriors will meet the Sacramento Kings in the first round of the playoffs. The Kings have been on a hot streak this season. Earning the third seed in the Western Conference. It seems as if the Warriors are ready for the big matchup. Earlier this week, Draymond Green put the league on notice. However, Bayless isn't so sure about the warning.

The Warriors will be the sixth seed in their first-round matchup. However, being defending champions, fans believe the team can make a run. But that doesn't mean that the Kings are the three seed by accident. Which was the point Bayless was trying to make in his take. "You can’t lose 30 road games and flip that switch. They’re the 17th-worse defense against the 1st-best offense." It hasn't been the fairy tale season for the defending champions. Including their drop in defensive efficiency that Bayless mentioned. However, counting them out entirely would seem foolish.

Skip Bayless Believes The Warriors Have A Tough Test

There's been a lot of talk about the lower seeds in the Western Conference. With the Lakers and Warriors being the headline of a lot of those discussions. However, don't fall in love with the lower seeds. As Bayless mentioned, there's a reason teams like the Warriors are at the bottom. While teams like the Kings are at the top of the conference. The Kings have been one of the more exciting teams in the entire NBA. That's what happens when a team is the most efficient offensive squad in the league.

Skip Bayless believes that Green may want to put a pause on his warning to the league. But it's hard to tell a four-time champion to slow his expectations. It has been a difficult year for the Warriors. However, there is a reason people still believe in them to make a run. Any team that is the home of Steph Curry has a shooter's chance at victory. Do you believe the Warriors are a viable threat to the NBA Championship? Let's see your NBA Finals predictions in the comment section.
