The Golden State Warriors have finally showed off their talent in the preseason, after the high anticipation following the blockbuster free-agent signing of Andre Iguodala. The Warriors remained healthy throughout the summer, and each player now has a chance to prove his worth.
Since the Warriors are chasing their first division title in almost 40 years, the players have heightened expectations and a more realistic goal than finishing with a winning record. The Warriors are now the “it” team with their exciting brand of basketball under coach Mark Jackson and 17 nationally-televised games to boot.
Each Warriors player brings his own skill set to the table, and Steph Curry and Andre Iguodala are currently getting the most attention. However, Andrew Bogut is now healthy with no restrictions and Harrison Barnes and Klay Thompson are fighting it out for the final starting position.
The rankings are based on the players' overall value to the team coming into the start of the regular season. They factor in injury concerns, the station on career arcs and how each player benefits the Warriors.
So, let’s take a look at this year’s Golden State Warriors player power rankings.
