Kendrick Lamar and the Golden State Warriors

The Golden State Warriors won Game 6, clinching yet another NBA title. In the end, the Warriors’ experience proved too much for the Celtics. Because of the win, the Kendrick Lamar streak remains alive. The Dubs should hope Lamar keeps dropping albums.

Kendrick Lamar winning streak is alive

GSW fans noticed that the Warriors win an NBA title every time Kendrick Lamar releases an album. The multi-awarded rapper released his latest album, “Mr. Morale and the Big Steppers,” this year.

Golden State defeated Boston 90-103 in Game 6, and Steph Curry was named Finals MVP for the first time, silencing his doubters in the process.

Lamar released “To Pimp A Butterfly” in 2015, “Damn” in 2017, “Black Panther The Album” in 2018, and coincidentally, in those years, coach Steve Kerr and his players won the chip. But can the Warriors hope for a repeat next season?

Chances of back-to-back are slim for the Warriors

Fans of the Warriors hope Lamar releases another album next year, but according to how the multi-awarded rapper works, it could be a few years before the next one. His last album before “Mr. Morale and the Big Steppers” was five years ago.

Aside from this fact, teams will have deeper lineups next year. Players will return from injuries, and teams will make some offseason improvements. Make no mistake, the Warriors have all the players they need to make another championship run. But also, they benefited from other All-Star players missing the Playoffs.

The Warriors deserved the championship, but it might be a different story next year. In the meantime, Steph Curry and his teammates proved Kendrick Lamar’s album release is prophetic and a sign of good things to come.
