In order for the Golden State Warriors to truly make the leap this season, Mark Jackson will have to correct some mistakes.
The Warriors advanced to the second round of the playoffs last season, and they hope to go even further this time around. Golden State has solid players at every position as well as serviceable backups.
An argument could be made it has the best starting unit in the league and it should be in the championship discussion with the likes of the San Antonio Spurs, Oklahoma City Thunder and Los Angeles Clippers.
The Warriors boast a top-10 defense as well as a passable offense, which should put them in the same stratosphere as the elite units in the league. However, the coaching staff occasionally leaves fans wanting more because of tactical miscues that keep popping up.
