Who Is the Golden State Warriors' Most Important Player?

This question could be answered quickly and easily.

One could say David Lee, as he was the Warriors' lone All-Star this season. One could name Stephen Curry, as he is the Warriors' leading scorer and highest-profile player.

A quick answer like this would be ignoring a key fact: The Warriors have had these two players for years, and only started winning this season.

That doesn't mean the answer isn't Lee or Curry, but to rule out Klay Thompson, Jarrett Jack, Andrew Bogut, Carl Landry and co. would be insulting and ungrateful.

So I've decided to go in-depth and figure this out fairly. I'm going to break down every major area in which an individual can contribute to a basketball team, rank the top Warriors in this category, tally up the points and figure out which Golden State player is in fact the team's most important asset.

Six total points will be assigned for each category. All players will be considered candidates.
