After winning the 2022 NBA Finals at the Boston Celtics, many batting leaders there strongly suggest that the Golden State Warriors are, at the very least, one of the biggest threats to winning the 2023 NBA Finals. ۔ There will be one.
It’s hard to see why this won’t happen, because Stephen Curry is still in excellent form, Clay Thompson is in the mix again and can still provide elite 3 point shooting and defense, and Andrew Wiggins is in your place. ۔ Found as a scorer and defender, and the lower version of Dreammond Green can also make a difference when he stops the defense and tries to move the ball forward on a quick break. Green is still the playmaker that helps move the ball around the frame.
What made the previous Warriors team so successful was their unique ability to add characters and veterans to the mix. Which hasn’t changed this season.
He has managed to develop Jordan Poole as one of the best shooters in the league, right next to the Splash Brothers.
In addition, he has managed to include Otto Porter Jr., Nemanja Bjelica, Gary Payton II, and Kevin Loney, including shooting, defense, and rebounding. Because of this, the Warriors have managed to establish themselves as the best team in the league at both ends of the line.
The Warriors have all the games to become an elite team in the NBA, but the player who really puts it all together is Steph Curry.
If Curry hadn’t been attracted to gravity, given his god-like ability to shoot the ball from anywhere on the court, it wouldn’t have exposed the Warriors’ offense so much that even players like Green would have been left halfway through. ۔ ۔ Good 3 point shooter if left open.
Defenders have tried to throw double teams in Kerry’s way and blitz him out, but if Kerry is forced to drop the ball, he has another historically excellent shooter as his teammate. He can kick. If the curve is out of line, it has a dribbling wizard to show itself on the edge.
What will it take for the Warriors to repeat?
The Western Conference was strong last season, but the inexperience and lack of depth of some of the best players from the best teams exposed many of their weaknesses, which opened the door for an experienced team like the Warriors. ۔ To steamroll through the conference.
You think the Dallas Mavericks will be back, led by Luca Donic. The Memphis Grizzlies should also return with Ja Morant and company in hopes of making a name for themselves in the league.
The Phoenix Sons still have Devin Booker, but Chris Paul’s age is a concern, and his future largely depends on what he decides to do with Dander Eaton. They are definitely a question mark.
The Los Angeles Clippers will get Paul George and Cavi Leonard back in addition to a ton of depth. Although he missed out on the playoffs this past season, he will be a threat next season.
The Minnesota Timberwolves will return with Carl Anthony Towns and Anthony Edwards.
If Jamal Murray and Michael Porter Jr. can be healthy with Nicola Joke, then the Denver Nuggets may be a threat.
What these teams have in common is that despite being very talented, they have obvious weaknesses in their roster in addition to their lack of experience.
That’s why the Warriors have a great chance to return to the final next season if they can stay healthy, as none of the players on their roster seem ready to slow down yet.
