The Golden State Warriors were far from the team we have known for the past five seasons in the Bay Area last year.

After losing Kevin Durant and DeMarcus Cousins to free agency, Klay Thompson to a torn ACL and Steph Curry to a wrist injury, the Warriors were simply a shell of the former dynasty they had put on the court in recent seasons.

And while the Warriors were hoping to get their dynamic duo between Curry and Thompson back on the floor this season, tragedy struck during a scrimmage the day of the 2020 NBA Draft.

Curry and Warriors fans' alike learned of news that Thompson had suffered an Achilles tendon injury that would force him to miss the entire 2020-21 NBA season as well. And Curry showed the exact kind of emotional response you might expect from a great teammate and friend.

This is tough to watch if you're a Warriors fan, or just a fan of good basketball for that matter, but in a way it's also nice to see behind the curtains of the game and recognize the bond that's been forged between these two.
