The Golden State Warriors’ offseason featured a series of moves that shored up some pesky holes that were dramatically highlighted last season. While those moves improved the Warriors as a whole, they weren’t signings that would change anything in the their starting lineup.
It will be a change within the previous squad that will truly shake things up.
Pegging the majority of the first unit is an easy affair, as the Warriors are brimming with star power at the top of the roster. Spoilers: Stephen Curry is starting next season.
Throwing a group of stars together on the court is not the key to winning, however. What Steve Kerr will need to do to truly help the Warriors realize their full potential is find the right balance of them, ensuring that the lulls on offense that plagued the Mark Jackson era do not find their way onto the court this season.
These predictions are based on the assumption that the Warriors are out of the Kevin Love sweepstakes and that the roster currently constructed will be the one going forward. Also, while many of the Warriors have been historically prone to injury in the past, all players will be presumed healthy for this exercise.
