The Warriors should rest their starters in the playoffs so they can stay fresh for next season. There are too many risks and contributing factors that go into a playoff run, and when it’s all said and done, it’s just not worth it.

Why do the big names and stars have to play so much, come playoff time? If the young rookies and reserves don’t get any playoff minutes, how will they ever get any playoff experience so they can be trusted in playoff games? It’s a vicious circle. Stop being such a ball hog, Steph Curry, and let the entry level employees gain some valuable work experience.

By playing hard in the playoffs, the Warriors are risking an injury that could come back to bite them in the ass come next season. Say Steph Curry, god forbid, breaks an ankle this postseason. He could be out long into next season and be questionable for next year’s playoffs (which the Warriors should rest him for, in order to save him for the next regular season after that). It’s just not worth it.

Every round you advance in the playoffs, that’s more tickets and shirts that have to be printed. Somebody’s gotta go to Kinko’s or something. Now I’m standing behind this idiot printing off 50,000 playoff tickets and I’m just trying to make a couple copies because my cat is lost. And by the time I get to that copier, my cat’s riding the rails halfway to Kalamazoo. So now because you wanted to win another meaningless playoff series, my cat left me. You happy now, Warriors?

Decal guy’s gotta make one of them playoff decals for the court. Nobody ever thinks of the decal guy. Poor decal guy.
