In the 2008 to 2009 season the Warriors were very disappointed and sad. First, they had a very bad record during the season, 29-53. Monta Ellis, their top player, was injured and suspended for 30 games from a moped accident. That’s what made the record very bad. But later, the young players had leadership and determination. Sometimes, they even beat power houseteams like the strong Boston Celtics where the score was 99 to 89 in favor of the Warriors. The Warriors improved very quickly, and even won some playoffs.
