It would be easy to classify what the Golden State Warriors did this year and what they did in the first round of the playoffs against the Denver Nuggets as a "Cinderella run." We didn't really expect them to truly be as good as they were. Many didn't expect them to upset a higher seed in the first round of the playoffs. We didn't expect them to continue to shoot the ball the way they did game after game after game. But I think to say that they were a Cinderella run would downgrade their accomplishments.
