I'm really liking this team a lot. Curry is finally healthy, and playing at high level, almost all-star caliber. David Lee gives them a low-post scorer and strong rebounder and is playing like an all-star. Klay Thompson is a deadly 3 point shooter, and when he gets hot watch out he will light you up. Barnes is only a rookie but is playing solid, and will only get better as the year goes on. Landry and Jack are great off the bench. If Bogut comes back and stays healthy this team can be very dangerous. I worry though with Curry and Thompson in the backcourt the Warriors will be exposed on defense, thus why Bogut is key.
This might be the most fun team to watch in the nba.
If your banking on Bogut being healthy for their success, your screwed...
They need to get some other viable low post defensive presences.
Thats why trading 1 of your best players for a guy who has major injury history, is stupid. The Warriors GM, Bob Myers knows it now. He recently apologized to Warriors fans regarding Boguts injury situation. During the interview he looked nervous as hell. If it wasnt for his draft pick of Klay Thompson and Harrison Barnes, even though I thought the Warriors should have taken Andre Drummond to learn from and back up Bogut, Bob Myers might be looking for a new job soon.
al jefferson or paul milsap would fit right in
They still take some very questionable shots, Jackson is getting better with his rotations but is still shaky - see how he let Detroit come back from a 20 point deficit in the 4th? Madness.
That said, Barnes is proving to be a better defender than people gave him credit for, and makes the right basketball decision to a fault. Lee is simply dominating, he's playing like Zach Randolph, using extremely good touch and footwork to get results without needing athleticism. Landry is an excellent bench guy, Biedrins is even providing some decent minutes backing up C, but there's no question the Warriors are at their best with Lee at the C causing problems for slower-footed defenders.
Clippers are easily the must fun team to watch in the league as of now but I'm also really starting to like the Warriors, damn shame that Rush went down but Barnes has really stepped in and picked up the slack.
Barnes is a very good 5th wheel.
Loosing to a 15 seed is cool.
wrestling is for f.a.g.s
Duke is for &$#%#&@!z, mark
There are two avenues. One is that Bogut comes back and stays healthy, and then Golden State is really an interesting team. The other is that Curry gets hurt, and they are unable to sustain the level that they are playing at. It is hard to get too comfortable with guys who have injury histories. That said, Carl Landry deserves all the credit in the world for giving so many minutes and playing so well as an undersized 5.
Festus Ezeli fits great with this warriors team... he provides the bulk and post presence and doesnt need shots, I was hoping Miami would have picked him but for some reason they decided to play another season without a center on their roster
and Harrison Barnes is getting better every day
