In the spring of 2007, the Golden State Warriors pulled off one of the biggest upsets in the history of the NBA and became the first-ever No. 8 seed to defeat a No. 1 seed in a seven-game playoff series.
Back then, they were lovable underdogs, led by Baron Davis and Stephen Jackson, who dispatched league MVP Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks in six games.
In the words of S.E. Hinton, that was then, this is now.
No longer outsiders, the current Golden State Warriors have won three out of the last four NBA titles and have a legit chance of winning their third in a row this season.
However, even if they lose, Golden State has already cemented itself as the most unlikeable team in pro sports, surpassing the New York Yankees, New England Patriots, and Manchester United.
