Bold Steps Golden State Warriors Must Take to Win a Championship
Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports
The Warriors are looking for their first title since the 1970s.

The Golden State Warriors showed a lot of promise in their 2013 playoff run, but the team still must take some bold steps to become a true championship contender.

The Warriors have no doubt improved the roster with the addition of Andre Iguodala and the departure of both Andris Biedrins and Richard Jefferson.  However, the Dubs are still chasing compared to the talent of the Miami Heat, Oklahoma City Thunder, San Antonio Spurs and Los Angeles Clippers.

The Warriors have a young roster that is ascending similar to the foundation that the Houston Rockets put in place with James Harden, Dwight Howard and Jeremy Lin.  The Warriors will be a far better team this upcoming season, but ESPN ranked them in the same spot they finished last year.

I don’t believe the team can make it to the NBA Finals this season with the current roster.  The team can take baby steps and lay the groundwork to become a championship contender.

Steph Curry is a burgeoning superstar, and Andrew Bogut is playing in a contract year, but Harrison Barnes is moving to sixth man, and the team is without a true backup point guard.

The adjustments will be made, and the team will legitimately contend for its first Pacific Division crown since the 1975-76 season.  Now, let’s take a look at the necessary steps that can help the Dubs win a championship.
