Warriors Player's Unbelievable Streak Comes to an End

An amazing streak came to an unfortunate end.

Kevon Looney had one of the greatest Ironman streaks in the NBA at 290 consecutive games played for the Warriors, but that unfortunately came to an end on Thursday night.

On Thursday night, the Golden State Warriors faced off against the Chicago Bulls in a disappointing loss, and it was also the first game that Kevon Looney didn't play since March 20, 2021. He had played in every single game for the Golden State Warriors since a game against the Memphis Grizzlies on March 20, 2021.

To put that date into perspective, NBA teams still weren't having full-capacity games because of COVID-19 at that time, Giannis Antetokounmpo still wasn't an NBA Champion at that time, and Steph Curry still hadn't won his fourth championship yet.

There aren't many NBA players more reliable than Kevon Looney. Time after time, he's come off the bench or come off the starting lineup and done anything that the Golden State Warriors have asked of him, without complaint. One of the only other players in the NBA with a longer Ironman streak than Kevon Looney is Mikal Bridges.

Even though Looney's streak was snapped on Thursday night, what matters more is putting the Warriors in a position to win. That's been his focus since night one, without complaint, and will be moving forward for the team.
